Welcome to our blog. In addition to being hip to the latest trends in cyber communication, we will use this space to share with you some of our most memorable events and tales from the wild world of off-site catering.
Leftovers for Lovers
Does anyone really get to eat at their own wedding? With all the people, formalities, and excitement, taking 5 minutes to enjoy a meal often goes to the wayside. It’s important to us that all our couples enjoy the full Trumpet Vine experience and that’s why we offer “Leftovers for Lovers.” A unique Trumpet Vine service, “Leftovers for Lovers” features an insulated picnic basket stuffed full of appetizers and dishes from the reception menu. We make sure this send-off picnic 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.
Trumpet Vine + Sunset’s “Savor the Central Coast”
We are excited to be part of Sunset’s “Savor the Central Coast” concert with Colbie Caillat at the beautiful Vina Robles Amphitheater later this month. Trumpet Vine will be providing wine-friendly picnics bags as one of the evening’s dining options.
Each picnic-to-go will include a savory fig and blended cheese torte, crostini, charcuterie, Castelvetrano olives, and a farro salad with dried cherries, pistachios, grilled raddichio and truffle vinaigrette. Our vegetarian alternative to charcuterie includes hummus, tzatziki and falafel. Each picnic bag also will be accompanied by a bottle of Vina Robles wine.
Visit Sunset Savor for more concert and picnic details.
In Support of Same Sex Marriage
We were surprised to recently receive an inquiry from a potential client asking if we catered same-sex weddings. Of course we do!
We’ve had the pleasure of catering several same-sex marriages over the years. Regardless of orientation, we believe all unions are an awe-inspiring example of love that is shared by all of our clients. We are beyond excited to continue supporting marriage equality one memorable and delicious wedding dinner at a time.
The Brunch Reception
The traditional “day after brunch” is getting a new time slot. One of our favorite wedding trends is the “breakfast for dinner” concept. Much like the “comfort” craze, breakfast foods inspire that familiar nostalgia that gives us the warm fuzzy feeling. From a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” inspired menu for a daytime reception to a “Sophisticated Southern” evening extravaganza we love how our couples are inspired to use “breakfast for dinner” as a way to express the energy and style of their wedding.
Brunch themed receptions also give a twist to traditional bar offerings. In lieu of wine and beer, a chef-attended Bloody Mary or mimosa bar, where guests can add a variety of garnishes makes for a great visual presentation and encourages mingling.
Have a style in mind that we can build your menu around – share it with us. We delight in personalizing your celebration. Who’s ready for waffles?
