Tasty Wedding Menu Ideas, Fun Design at Down South Delights Bridal Tasting
Thursday, March 22, 2012
A few weeks ago, I was invited to sample treats from Down South Delights at their bridal tasting. It was a fun evening, a great opportunity to reconnect with wedding professionals and to meet engaged couples while...eating!
If you attended, I'm sure you had a great time too. If you were not able to attend, fret not. Thanks to Ryan Tolbert Photography, I have photos of the food, the venue and the event design along with info on the team that pulled it all together.
Designs by Margaret coordinated the event and was responsible for the table and event design. My favorite table was the fun and colorful crayon table. Liberty Party Rentals debuted their incredible ghost chairs. The event was held at the W.O. Smith Music School. It's centrally located and has gorgeous hardwood floors throughout. It's a great looking space that you have to see in person to appreciate.
Down South Delights provided a full buffet of food, a hot chocolate bar and a beverage bar that included fun alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Of course, I sampled just about everything. Nashville Cake Pops also provided...cake pops! I personally loved the chicken skewers, homemade lemonade, and sangria and the hot chocolate bar. Full menu included:
*Chinois Chicken Skewers with sake Lime Sauce
*Bistro Rolls: beef tenderloin, caramelized onions, tomato chutney, and horseradish cream on butter rolls
*Cashew & Roasted Veggie Lo Mein in Mini Take Out Boxes
*Tuscan Marinated Shrimp
*Hot Buttered Seafood Dip
*Bourbon Brown Sugar Meatballs
*Mini Cheese Truffles: Pineapple Pecan & Crispy Bacon Cheddar with gourmet crackers
*Watermelon & Scallop Ceviche
*Assortment of Spring Canapes
*Chive Crepes rolled w/ Boursin & Farmer's Market Grilled Vegetables
*Southern Spiked Peach Punch & Brandied Slush
