30 Sep The Perfect Party Invitation
Where else could have been better to hold a fabulous Asian-inspired rehearsal dinner for 70 people than a private residence overlooking Mission Bay and SeaWorld’s spectacular fireworks. The venue definitely gave the event a very intimate cozy feel where the guests were able to mingle freely. To make the day as stress-free for the client as possible, our staff at the Abbey arranged for all of the rentals, such as the linens, tables, chairs, belly bars, staff, and of course our gourmet food.
The flow reception lasted for three hours. This meant that the guests were able to enjoy themselves without haste. One and a half hours were dedicated to cocktail hour with an open bar while we served our very popular beef wellington, refreshing Ahi Poke served on cucumber rounds, coconut crusted shrimp, and of course our famous hummus: Roasted Garlic, Indian spice, and roasted red pepper. For the last hour and a half our guests enjoyed the station style dinner. The Asian themed dinner consisted of marinated salmon over pad Thai noodles, chicken kabobs with Teriyaki sauce served over fried rice served in cute Chinese take-out boxes.
The themed colors were a crisp white, green, and different shades of orange, and the beautiful flower arrangements done by Erin Kluzak made this evening even more spectacular! Another great event that I am very proud to have been a part of!
