Christmas at the Barn

Thursday, December 17, 2009
I cater on a part-time basis. This last weekend I catered an elegant barn affair. A very fun party and I thought I'd share my pictures for Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. I love this event and peek at the tablescapes almost every week but rarely contribute. So many super talented contributors.

The barn, all sparkled up for Christmas.

Buffet Table -
The menu for dinner was Salad Bar,Homemade Rolls, Grilled NY Strip Steaks, Chicken Cordon Blue, Scalloped Potatoes & Garlic Green Beans. There were also appetizers and a dessert buffet. Very easy dishes but ones that come off quite nicely.

My helpers.

  1. The barn looks absolutely elegant and festive, inside and out. And the table setting is stunning. Lots of ideas here!! The menu also sounds great. Do you make everything for your events?? It sounds challenging, but fun.

    Happy holidays, Mrs. P. :-)

    I entertain a lot of people here on Boxing Day but they are spread out throughout the day and evening.Casual appetizer type event.
    When you set that long table full of place settings it makes me cringe thinking how on earth will I coordinate that much food.
    You must be extremely organized.

    Everything looks so festive and cheery! I love the table settings...simple, yet elegant! And the menu sounds delicious! I would have thought steaks would be a difficult thing to do for a crowd!

  1. Goodness, Mrs P arn't you the busy elf? What a wonderful place to have a dinner. Love the table, and the menu sounds fantastic. The only problem is I think my invitation must have gotten lost in the mail!

  1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment. I love the table. I used to cater on a part time basis, too. It was a lot of hard work but very rewarding.

    The thought of gold and the barn is a womderful play on opposites. I love it.

    Thanks for sharing and have a Blessed Christmas.
