We guarantee you’ll fall in love with every detail of this beautiful event and hope it inspires you to throw a fall dinner party of your own!
At Colette’s Catering & Events, we really try to focus on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Our Executive Chef Colleen Zielinski produces new menus every season for our clients, so we wanted to do something different to showcase our new autumn menu. A pop-up dinner came to mind and what a better way to really focus on the food and try something we haven’t done before. This dinner had to be at a special location, so we chose one of our favorite venues; Cooks Chapel in Anaheim’s Packing District. Of course, we had to reach out to our ever-so-talented friends of Beijos Events, to design the dinner and set the look and feel for the event.
We had a little over 50 dinner guests that included influencers, wedding vendors, media and friends. We served signature cocktails (the Vanilla Pear was a huge hit!), tray passed hors d’ oeuvres, a small plate to kick off the seated dinner, followed by a family style meal with a beautifully plated dessert. It was such a special evening and one that none for us will ever forget.
Specialty cocktails included a Vanilla Pear Cocktail & Maple Whiskey Cocktail.
The Menu featured a Burrata Fig Salad, Pan Roasted Petite Tender, Grilled Pork Tomahawk, Cauliflower, and Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. Yum!
