The first thing that comes to mind with Karina + VJ is WOW! They’re a match made in heaven who knew how to wed in style!

With delicious items such as mini waffles topped with hazelnut butter and pecan crusted chicken drizzled with old fashion syrup to Jumbo Prawns stuffed with fresh lump crab meat & finished with lime buerre blanc guests were raving all night long.

Real Events | Erin + Matt | Orlando Science Center
October 23, 2012 by Puff 'n Stuff | comments

Today we’re sharing a wedding that’s very dear to our hearts, a wedding between our very own Erin and Matt. From such a dynamic duo we expected a grand celebration to remember, and they didn’t let us down! We can’t just tell you the theme without sharing the charming story behind it. Every year Erin and Matt have hosted a Food & Wine themed party and its become something that they and their friends look forward to – so this year they threw a Food & Wine party to go down in history & the hearts of all who attended.

With an eye for design, Erin designed & created much of their wedding materials such as invitations, menus, and even the delicate place mat you can see below. Working with Puff ‘n Stuff Catering Senior Special Event Planner, Heidi Brice, they choose action stations well suited to their theme. Each station was paired perfectly with either a wine or specialty drink. This sweet affair had a dessert table that dazzled all from their beautiful and delicious Amaretto Wedding Cake from The Sugar Suite, to mini Yum Yum Cupcakes, mini doughnut holes, and iced vanilla lattes shots.

Picking out our favorite moments from this night is near impossible, this really was a stunning celebration that we will gladly share and remember forever. Take a look below and see for yourself why Erin + Matt will always have a place in our hearts:

Trends | Chevron | ‘Tis the Season
October 9, 2012 by Puff 'n Stuff | comments

Chevron, also called Cheveron in older documents, is an inverted V shaped pattern that has been making a huge scene in this season’s wedding & events. Although we’ve recently come to love this hot, new chevron in events- it’s actually a senior pattern that’s been around since ancient times dating back to 1800 BC in early pottery & rock carvings.

We’re seeing this charming pattern dance it’s way into all aspects of events, from the finishing details such as napkins, favors, table runners, linens, napkins, and even cake designs to largely incorporated into the theme via photo backdrops, stationary & invitations, and even entire tablescapes. With so many variations of hues and colors, this lovely pattern is the perfect finishing touch to any event.

Real Events | One Conference Opening Reception | Orlando Museum of Art
October 2, 2012 by Puff 'n Stuff | comments

There’s nothing like a night at the Museum, especially when it’s a cultural arts showcase at the Orlando Museum of Art! From the moment guests arrived on the scene, the creativity was abundantly flowing. At the bus drop off point there were two large 5 x 10 gilded frames from which out stepped musicians and authentic Shakespeare actors. From there guests were greeted by a formal line-up of bright-eyed Puff ‘n Stuff Catering waiters who stepped forward to present each guest with a fluke of champagne.

The theme carried on with large gold frames identifying each of the participating arts organizations. Guests could spot contemporary dancers entertaining guests from various nooks and crannies of the event. Lively Actors posed like living statues, mingled with guests, then returned to a statuesque state. The art-tainment continued into the night with a culinary show that left guests applauding for more. Menu items were selected to represent the various schools of visual arts form Asian Impressionism and American Realism to French Impressionism. Our Bento Box displaying delightful hors d’Oeuvres such as Fresh Sashimi & Sushi Rolls, Chilled Shrimp Cocktails, Tenderloin & Orzo Timbale with a Grain Mustard Vinaigrette and many more tempting items were a masterpiece evoking the crowd all evening. This sweet night ended with our famous Chef Attended Miniature Creme Brulee & S’mores Indoors Stations and the actors taking the stage and bringing to life one of Shakespeare’s most famous scenes, “Good night, good night! Parting is such a sweet sorrow, that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.”

Real Weddings | Charity + Peter | Orlange County Regional History Center
September 11, 2012 by Puff 'n Stuff | comments

Charity and Peter’s wedding began like many others with months of planning, a delicious customized menu, family, friends, love, happiness…. and then Florida showers tried to rain on their outdoor ceremony. What could have easily been a little girl’s worst nightmare turned out to be one of the most lovely affairs we’ve ever had the pleasure to be a part of! Thankfully, Puff ‘n Stuff Catering Special Event Planner Nicole Gerardi was on the scene, and she spent many months with Charity and Peter, taking the time to really get to know their taste and vision. Nicole was able to move the ceremony inside the Orange County Regional History Center to a room that has never before hosted a wedding ceremony. Asian inspiration, hanging crystals, and orchids were the key ingredients to the beautiful transformation.

The night continued on blissfully with butler passed hors d’oeuvres such as Rustic Tomato & Mozzarella Bruschetta, Ahi Tartare, Smoked Tea Duck Breast, and Fresh Asian Spring Rolls. But the happiness didn’t end there – it continued on through their plated first course, dinner buffet, and on to the very last delicious dessert! Charity and Peter could not have been happier as they ate, danced, and laughed the night away with their closest friends and family. Thank you Charity and Peter for allowing us to be a part of your special day! Keep scrolling to see the delightful designed menu below:
