Our clients host the best holiday parties!

January 17, 2024Lauren Windle

We have some of the most wonderful and generous clients! One of our favorites often hosts a holiday party in December for just under 100 guests in her beautifully decorated home.

This year’s party had particularly festive décor, and a great mix of guests. We love doing holiday parties, working with our return (and first time) clients to create the right vibe – and the ideal foods and drink to suit the occasion!

Here’s what expert party planner David Jackson prepared for the evening:

Butlered Appetizers served just as guests arrived:

  • Mini Chicken Creole Crepes or
  • Lump Crab and Artichoke dip on Flatbread
  • Boursin-stuffed Dates wrapped with Bacon, Drizzled with Truffle Honey Lobster Canape, and served on a Mini Buttered Toast

The bar was well-stocked with favorites, such as
Perrier Lauren Rose Champagne, Sauvignon Blanc, Rombauer Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Willimette Valley, French Rose, and Cognac.

David Jackson also prepared a special (very popular!) holiday cocktail. Our Christmas Poinsetta was a merry mix of Champagne, Cranberry juice, and Grand Marnier, served with Cranberries and Fresh Rosemary in these gorgeous glasses!

As guests progressed to a seated Main Course, we served

  • Prime Aged Beef Tenderloin Carved with Horseradish Cream
  • Baby Lamb Chops with English Mint Sauce
  • Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail with St Elmo's Horseradish Cream
  • Beet Cured King Ora Salmon with Capers and Creme Fraiche on a Mini Brioche, with

Caviar Cake with Melba Toasts, Imported Cheese Trays,

Dauphinnoise Potatoes with Shaved Black Truffles,
Multi Colored Baby Carrots Steamed with European Butter, Sea Salt Jumbo Asparagus with Wasabi Mayonnnaise
and Individual Brussel Sprout, Kale, Orange and Pomegranate Salad

No holiday party is complete without our famous Holiday Yule Log for dessert. We also offered Lemon Curd or Chocolate Tarts, Forest Gateau Raspberry Shooters, Mini Chocolate Cups with Raspberry Mousse, and Mini Fresh Fruit Tarts.

Suffice it to say, every      one left with a full stomach (yumm!) and lots of holiday spirit! Thank you, David!
