Tonight's dinner was the perfect end to a perfect Wedding season.
I'll be honest, pulling off a dinner for my team in 125 hours was no easy task, but the end result, I was very proud of.
The biggest challenge was deciding on a menu. With the holidays around the corner, I chose to avoid turkey and ham-At all cost! Instead, we opted for roasted chicken with vegetable stuffing, cranberry sauce with whole berries and orange zest, baked macaroni, sweet potatoes and vegetables. I lucked out on the caterer for the night-my sister (who is pursuing her passion in the catering world) eagerly volunteered to cook-MAJOR RELIEF. For the spring roll, coconut shrimp and meatball hor d'oeuvres, I enlisted the help of Andreottis' Vienesse Cafe in Cherry Hill, NJ. Desserts-brownies, cupcakes, miniature cherry cheesecake and cherry ganaches were complimented with cranberry Bellini's and completed the festive feel of the night.
For decor, I turned to my new favorite store Christmas Tree Shops. The gorgeous table centerpiece (complete with orchids, an apple and a christmas tree bulb) was compliments of my favorite florist Denise Herker of Leigh Florist

It was a real honor to me to be able to provide my staff with a home-cooked meal to say thank you. I truly believe I have the best team in the business, hearing from guests at almost EVERY wedding how wonderful my staff is is a testament to just how hard my team works in helping to make dreams come true.
