This past weekend I had the pleasure of catering a Christmas dinner for over 30 people. The house was beautifully decorated with tinsel and candles. As the evening went on, more and more family members arrived. The atmosphere grew cozy and warm. There was a great sense of joy as the family mingled and nibble on appetizers as the kids played mini golf and watched movies in the basement.
When dinner was served everyone sat around tables stretching between two rooms. Everyone helped themselves to a family style dinner. Wine was poured, turkey was gobbled and second…even thirds were had.
Assorted Cheese Balls and crackers
Warm Spinach Dip with crackers

The family laughed, ate, chatted and ate some more into the night.
This event was such a joy for me to cater. A loving family, delicious food and the most wonderful holiday of all.
Thank you to a lovely family for allowing me to be a part of such a joyous event!
