Poolside Birthday Soiree
Monday, July 7th, 2014
A poolside birthday party filled our holiday weekend.  We were thrilled to be throwing a party with one of our very favorite clients, that happens to also be a BFF.  She has a remarkable vision and it was a joy to help bring her dream party for her brother to reality.

She wanted a light fare menu that included passed appetizers that you could nibble on while in the pool or lounging near it.  Appetizers included watermelon bites with feta, fresh mint, and balsamic glaze, prosciutto wrapped melon, Gazpacho shooters, mini Hot Browns, and Ngiri.

Dinner included a seafood trio of butter poached shrimp skewers on cheese grits, crab and avocado cups, smoked salmon on cucumbers with creme fraiche and dill, and an arugula salad.

Dessert was Grand Marnier soaked berries with fresh whipped cream.
The evening included an after dinner cigar bar, some swimming, and late night homemade ham and cheese sliders.  I believe the birthday boy was happy.  It was such fun to work side by side with some fabulous ladies that made the day go by with laughter and champagne.  We even had time for our own dip in the pool before the evening started.  We can’t wait to do it again.
