After a couple of months of preparation and planning, our Open House at work turned out really nice and the food table in the boardroom was magnificent. I figured you would be mostly interested in the food, right?? We used a local, well-known caterer, Kathy G, and they really had spread it out nicely. They know how to do it up right! We chose a Tuscan theme for the food and decor and our boardroom table was filled with delightful tidbits. We ordered these 3 floral arrangements from a local floral design place in Homewood, called Dorothy McDaniels, and they did a fabulous job as well. The table was beautiful!
We had a nice variety of food, from paninis, imported cheeses with crackers, marinated olives & artichokes, mini-BLT’s, stuffed mushrooms, mini-tenderloin beef sandwiches, Thai chicken tarts, and a nice array of sweets. I didn’t get a great shot of all the florals lined up, but they really created a WOW when you walked in the room.
Pita chips & various dips, along with the artichokes & olives. Pasta salad also.
Paninis & tenderloin beef sandwiches.
The other 2 floors in our building participated too, so it was quite the event. The caterer put out food on all 3 floors, as well as beverage stations. This floral arrangement was on one of the other floors & it was very pretty too.
It was quite a spread. Wish you all could have been there too. We had tons of food left and ate on it for 2 days. Very yummy!
Some of you asked me if I ever get tired….oh yeah, I sure do. I’m always in bed by 9:30 or 10 each night & luckily as I’ve gotten older, I don’t require as much sleep as I used to. But, some days I just crash & can’t do another thing. Like many of you working girls, I struggle to keep the house clean, do laundry, and cook meals each day. It’s a whirlwind. The projects are fun for me though & I’d rather do those than housework any day! I could use a few extra hours in the day some days, couldn’t you?
