Introducing the "Send off Picnic"

Does anyone REALLY eat at their own wedding? Seems like there are too many people, formalities and excitement to think about sitting down for 5 minutes to eat. Thus, our latest addition to the Trumpet Vine experience for our couples. The "Send off Picnic " features an insulated picnic basket packed with "Leftovers for Lovers" (various appetizers and dishes from the reception menu). We make sure this gets tucked into the getaway car at the end of the evening so our newlyweds can munch and relax privately back at their suite. When it is all said and done, our couples have a little memento from their wedding caterer to last a lifetime.

Backstage at the California Mid-State Fair

This was our 4th year as the caterer for backstage artist, support and crews at the California Mid-State Fair's 10-day event. This is some of our shiny happy crew sweating it out in the Paso heat. Take note of our sweet new salad buffet in the pictures above. The CMSF bought it this year and we love it. It takes so little to make us caterers happy. We had a great time and Chef Hope got to prepare chicken for Toby Keith while he chatted her up at the BBQ. Woohoo! That is about the extent of the glamour we experienced.
Can't wait to see the line-up for 2009!
