45th Birthday Fun

One of my dear clients in San Diego asked me to cater her 45th birthday for all her friends.  This was such a fun party to cater and I felt so honored to be apart of the event.  We decided to do an Italian menu.  Here is what we served.

This was a wonderful event for a client who had just graduated from grad school.  We decided to do an elegant and more sophisticated theme and went with a fresh Mediterranean style.  Here is what I served.

Mediterranean Centerpieces

These centerpieces were meant to balance the rustic burlap table toppers and go along with the rustic Mediterranean theme.  I used a combination of terracotta pots with fresh herbs, glass milk bottles with sunflowers, fresh citrus and vine ripe tomatoes with moss, and ball jar glasses with sand and candles.
