We love it when we have the opportunity to showcase real client events! Today, we are sharing some images and inspiration from an hors d’oeuvre reception for JMC Communities at Ovation, an intimate collection of 45 luxurious residences overlooking the scenic downtown St. Petersburg, FL waterfront and marina.

Themed and styled by Lucia Paul Designs as a reflection of the Broadway hit, A Little Night Music, the event featured live music by the Florida Orchestra and Becca McCoy, colorful and luxurious decor by conceptBait and Botanica Design Studio, and of course, delectable bites from our team at Puff ‘n Stuff Catering.

The menu featured an active fruit crêpe station, and a host of butler-passed hors d’oeuvres including Brie, Mushroom and Sundried Tomato Phyllo Cups, Ahi Tuna with Mango and Pomegranate Salsa, Maryland Crab Cake Towers, Spinach Bouchee, and more. Hungry yet? On top of the raves about the food itself, our friendly and attentive service staff were such a hit that they were requested to return for their next event!

As I thought about what I would write for this blog I reflected back on my last posting in October as a reference that would serve as a “common thread” or theme for this months posting. Last time I wrote we were in the process of getting ready for the holiday season and with a blink on an eye we find ourselves “in season”!

It is an exciting time of the year to be catering. All the holiday preparations that have been made over the last several months to “Passionately Perfect Life’s Celebrations” are in full swing. The Ballroom at Church Street will be decorated for the holiday season this coming Monday and we are busy getting ready to add that special touch to all of our clients events for their holiday parties.

Along with getting ready for the season we have been busy all over greater Central Florida helping clients host events while also creating new market and venue opportunities. In October we had the pleasure of working with Shands Gainesville on their gala that designated the opening of the newest facility on their campus. We also traveled to the TPepin’s Centre a couple of weeks ago to help host Brides.com Vendor Party. We are now a preferred cater at the TPepin’s Centre serving the greater Tampa area so if anyone in the Tampa area needs a great caterer….we travel!

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and joyous holiday season!

At your service,
