What an amazing 2013 we had this year. Our success was due to our wonderful customers and our amazing staff. The holiday season was probably one of our best in years. Our wedding and event business this year was out of this world. We wanted to give you a review of 2013 in pictures here. We hope you enjoy!
In April, we helped with the Annual Boys & Girls Club of Saline County golf tournament. It’s a fun event that we love to do to help a worthwhile organization helping in our community.
Also in April, we participated in the ONS fundraiser at The Rep helping one of our customers raise money for a great cause. Downtown Little Rock is always a unique place to cater in. No parking and we kept having to make sure we added change into the meter. But really truly a beautiful setting at The Rep.
We had a great time if not just a bit “hot” helping with the wedding of Kathleen and Luke Wyatt in May. We provided a little different service by providing hot food on trays instead of chafers. The trays we used were able to have a heat source underneath. We pulled it off!
We had a rainy day and had to move the annual Rivendell Employee Picnic inside but we still had a lot of Fiesta Fun in June. We had to be creative with the many Action Stations since we were not outside but we made it work.
We were delighted to help with the rehearsal dinner and wedding for the union of Katie Holland Brown and Rob Brown in July. We showed off our new Action Station with the Pasta Action Station. We also showed our non-catering skills by helping with flower arrangements. We learned a lot, but we rocked it as usual.
Each year in July we participate in the Taste of Bryant and this year we may have outdone ourselves with our Tailgate Theme. It was so much fun but very busy. We even made a whole football field that covered the two tables with green indoor/outdoor carpet and duct tape. We also had PVC pipe goal posts.
In October, we were delighted to celebrate the wedding of the daughter of our dear friends, Cissy and Phillip Brown. What a beautiful event! We made Bananas Foster and Banana Split crepes at 2 Action Stations and served over 300+ guests. It was an outdoor wedding reception that we worried all week the rain would ruin but somehow the rain went around Benton at just the right time and we had a beautiful cool night!
We love participating in Savor the Flavor and this year we were delighted to be in the new Benton Event Center for the annual event in October! This year our theme was Shabby Chic Wedding. We blasted our booth with flowers, burlap and ribbon. It was very beautiful and the food was great. I’m not sure our line ever died down either.
In November, we bundled up and braved a cold day at the U.S. Foods Razorback Tailgate Party at War Memorial. We had a Woo Pig Sooie good time! And we were able to use our Tailgate Theme materials from the Taste of Bryant event.
We couldn’t have asked for a better Thanksgiving and holiday season. We are always glad to help families celebrate traditions through the holiday season with delicious traditional holiday fare. To be honest, I’m not sure I’ve every seen so much food on every available surface in the kitchen!
In December, we had our biggest event yet with a 500+ plated luncheon for Southwest Power Pool. It was their Annual Employee Holiday Party and Talent Show! What Talent they have!
It’s been a year that we have cherished. We hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
