Kim and Scott had a beautiful elegant reception December 4th at Houston Station. I absolutely love her color scheme of champagne, mushroom, golds, bronzes, ivory, silver, and dark woody browns. She created all of the floral design herself and it looked amazing. The Christmas trees in the room added a light touch of the holidays without going overboard. For the menu they wanted unique Southwestern cuisine, think Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill. Several of Kim’s close friends are opening a new bakery and created a variety of yummy treats for dessert- an array of mini cupcakes, cookies, and mini banana puddings. For the signature cocktail, Kim created these wonderful spiced fresh cranberries with hints of orange that were too die for!

If you are looking to incorporate some new exciting items to your menu any of these items are great choices. The entire menu was delicious and it is always so much fun to create custom menus & dishes for your event. The Spinach & Artichoke Gratin is an amazing side dish that is a decadent option instead of a traditional side!
