Real Events | Justin’s Barnyard Bash! | Private Residence
December 27, 2011 by Puff 'n Stuff | comments

Justin turned two, and to celebrate his mother organized this amazing themed birthday party! Justin’s birthday had everything a two-year old could ever want – a petting zoo, balloon maker, a swimming pool, and a birthday buffet of his dreams. And to ensure everyone had something to enjoy, this shindig featured two buffets: one for the kids and one for the adults.

The kids feasted on their favorites such as animal-shaped grilled cheese’s sandwiches; and the adult’s had their own decadent buffet with goat cheese lollipops, farmer’s bread bowls,  pulled pork sliders, and racks of succulent BBQ ribs.  In keeping with the theme, the food was displayed in a barnyard style! The fresh seasonal fruit salad was served in an adorable watermelon bowl carved as a pig, food was served out of pails and baskets, and to top it off they even drank out of boot shaped glasses! Justin loved his Barnyard Birthday cake with mini animal cupcakes, and a pasture of cake pop cows and chickens in wheat grass. Look below for more barnyard fun!

Real Weddings | Kelsey + Greg | Bayshore Boulevard Estate
August 23, 2011 by Puff 'n Stuff | comments

Today’s real event is the romantic vintage-inspired wedding of Kelsey & Greg! The bride chose to hold her wedding and reception in the very place where she grew up. Filled with memories of her family, their special day created countless new memories with her newly expanded family and added character that no other venue could duplicate. The ceremony took place on the back lawn of the estate accented by pink floral arches lining the aisle, a waterfront view of the Gulf of Mexico, and a perfect sunset backdrop while the couple wed.

Following the ceremony, guests were escorted into the tented reception space which was beautifully adorned with floral vines and sparkling lights running up the walls and lining the tent ceiling. Large floral chandeliers filled the room with candlelight as Puff ‘n Stuff Catering served signature rosemary-infused lemonade and elegant hors d’oeuvres.

Soon after, a live band took the stage and got the party started! Guests were given silly glasses, stick on mustaches, glow in the dark wands, and other fun favors to make for an interesting night. After dancing up a storm, guests settled down to enjoy some of Puff ‘n Stuff Catering’s newest creations presented in fanciful chef bars. Following dinner the couple cut into their cakes and had a sweet ending to their fairytale day.
