Weekend Re-Cap

This past weekend was jam packed full of goodness and events! Yesterday, Lipstik helped host a First Communion / Birthday Celebration. The event started at 2pm and wound down around 7pm. The food was plentiful, the decor stunning and it seemed like everyone enjoyed themselves. It also helps that the clients home is breathtakingly beautiful!

Lipstik Events was in charge of the appetizers, floral arrangements and staff for the event. With some planning and organizing I was up at 7:30am yesterday to begin prepping the food I was preparing.

I hired Shannon & Robin from Hoopla Event Design & Styling to create six floral arrangements. The client asked for bright, fresh and spring like arrangements and boy did Hoopla deliver! The arrangements were stunning; everyone loved them. Shannon & Robin were fabulous to work with. They understood the vision and went with it. I can't wait for the chance to work with them again.

Now onto the food. The main course was taken care of by the host and Lipstik was to handle the appetizers. Here's what I served.

Chili Flakes, Parsley, Ginger & Garlic Shrimp

Smoked Salmon, Onion, Caper, Fresh Cream Cheese

Tomatoe & Peach Bruschetta

The two appetizers not photographed are rosemary lamb chops served with home-made tzatiki and white pizza with bocconcini cheese, black olives, onions and spices.

All in all a great Sunday!

Have a wonderful Monday!
