Today’s featured wedding is Brittanie and Matt’s stylish reception at The Ballroom at Church Street. Billed as “Downtown Orlando’s most elegant and trusted venue,” The Ballroom at Church Street is often chosen by brides for it’s romantic beauty and charming details.
As guests entered The Ballroom’s lavish, stained-glass atrium for the cocktail hour, servers made their way down the double grand staircases bearing delicious Puff ‘n Stuff Catering creations. The couple then welcomed their guests into the main ballroom, which was dressed to the nines in a sea of soft, smoke purple and platinum linens, dimmed purple up-lighting, and gorgeous pink and white floral center-pieces accented with white feathers by Lee Forrest Design. The groom, a former player and baseball aficionado, even added his own personal touch to the reception by incorporating tables named for his favorite Major League teams.
Guests were enchanted as they watched Brittanie and Matt’s first dance under the sparkling crystal chandeliers, and then delighted as they enjoyed a plated dinner specially prepared by Puff ‘n Stuff Catering!

Party Like a Pro | Summer Hurricane Party
Not that you need an excuse to party this summer, but if you do…we’ve got a great one. After all, it is hurricane season and the perfect time to throw a party featuring New Orleans-style hurricanes that are oh so sweet and tasty! So round up those beads, brush up on your Cajun and prepare to let the good times roll! And if you could use a little help partying like a pro, you know who to call. Who dat? Why, the pros at Puff ’n Stuff Catering. But to get you started, check out these ideas for decorating, favors, and, of course, delicious ‘Nola eats.
CENTER OF ATTENTION
Need a cool centerpiece idea? How ironic. We’ve got one right here! Simply gather up some hurricane drink glasses, fill them with crushed pink tissue paper and clear rocks, then top them off with little orange and red flowers. What you’ll end up with are centerpieces that look good enough to drink. (But don’t.)
For a fun and affordable party favor, just add beads. Toss them to your guests as they arrive, as they leave, or as they party. If and how they’re required to earn them is strictly between you and your krewe!
