What's Cooking in Carolina?

Mainly creative menus and recipes (usually healthy) and always from scratch with tips for party planning, theme parties, weddings and decorating tips so you can give swank parties or dinners to delight your guests from a part time caterer, owner/operator of a coming soon Entree Vous, but mainly a cook and eater who grows much of her own food and loves to laugh.

Wedding Reception

I have been too busy to sit down, so maybe today (start) I can get(ting) caught up. Yesterday we catered a wedding for 120. The menu is below with a few pictures. We didn't take many because there was not time and the ones we did take, didn't turn out very well.

The menu is below.

Breads with Jellies and Butters

It appeared that everyone enjoyed it based on the quantity of food that got consumed.

    The food sounds great and I love the centerpiece on that table.

    I know how hectic it can get.

    Thanks Coffeepot! My partner, Di, makes the most beautiful flower arrangements (along with my sister, Jo Anne). I stick with the food. Di did all of the flowers for the wedding and they were beautiful.
