Weddings With Style Bridal Show - Hemingbough - Sunday, March 25, 2012

Best Catered Events put on "Vintage Tea Party" this afternoon in the Weddings With Style bridal show at the breathtaking Hemingbough  in St. Francisville, LA.  The weather was just perfect for an afternoon of visiting with vendors, tasting food, watching the bridal fashion show and wandering the lovely grounds of Hemingbough.  We heard over and over, just how beautiful the facility and grounds were.

So many brides, grooms, bridesmaids, maids of honor, mother in laws to be, we just had a wonderful afteroon.  Owner, Dianne Evans and Chef  Dustin Quibodeaux of Best Catered Events served up a
"Vintage Lunch Box" .  Small paper boxes were filled with homemade chicken salad, creamy pimento cheese, open face cucumber and dill and pineapple pecan finger sandwiches along with salmon mousse and cold shrimp dip.  We also offered our Basil Peach Iced Tea, which was such an afternoon favorite.

Best Catered Events really enjoyed our "Vintage Tea Party".  We saw five of our brides to be during the show.  We are always excited to see them out and about and we visit and catch up.  We enjoy getting to know our brides and grooms and do our best to provide a wonderful catering experience for each one.  They all become like family to us. Thanks to everyone involved for a wonderful show this afternoon!
