CulinaryCraftsNEWBuilding

Did you guys know that Culinary Crafts is building a brand new, state-of-the-art, sparkly new facility in Pleasant Grove?!  It’s true!  We are so, so happy and excited for our new digs and even more thrilled for all of the new opportunities it will provide to us and to our community. (Cooking classes anyone???? YES!)  As you can see, we are ALMOST finished and hope to start movin’ in on the 1st of September, but we’ll keep you posted.  And definitely keep your eyes peeled for a “Grand Opening” party to celebrate and show off our building!  Oh, and we are looking for a tenant to occupy the 2500 sqft end unit, so if you are interested, give us a call!  Happy building, everyone!

A Modern Wedding at Red Butte Garden!

Today, we here at Culinary Crafts are excited to show you a fun, modern wedding at one of our favorite venues, Red Butte Garden, that was beautifully photographed by the fabulous Logan Walker Photography!  We loved this couple’s palette of soft yellow and warm grey and their fun personalities really made this wedding so full of life and awesome details.  Check it out!

Love, love, love the bride’s wedding dress and the bridesmaid’s soft yellow gowns were beautiful too!

RedButteWedding3

The “vest only” look for the groomsmen was a great choice for this laid-back couple and I’m sure it was appreciated by the gents in the soaring summer temperatures.

RedButteWedding4

Red Butte Garden is brimming with so much natural beauty – so STUNNING!

RedButteWedding5

The simple, yet striking, wedding cake was made by One Sweet Slice and, of course, it was simply perfect!

RedButteWedding6

So many great details!  From the fabulous florals from Every Blooming Thing to the artful chair ties – we loved the look of this wedding, for sure!

RedButteWedding7

The Orangerie at Red Butte Garden is always so pretty!

RedButteWedding8

The couple elected to serve a dessert buffet for their guests and we loved the selection of sweet treats they chose!  My personal favorite?  The Chocolate Chip Cookie and Milk Shooters!

RedButteWedding9

The cocktail space outside of The Orangerie is always so pretty at night.  We love when guests can mingle and dance the night away while watching a gorgeous sunset!

RedButteWedding10

Another great thing that this couple served was 2 signature beverages!  I love it even more when they do ‘his’ and ‘hers’ options!

RedButteWedding11

The bubble send-off was SO cute and we loved the whimsical touch it added to the end of the reception!  A great idea for any bride looking for something a little different!

This wedding was such a great celebration of family and love – and we were so happy to be a part of it!  Congrats to Tamara and Josue!  And happy planning everyone!

Venue Love: Publik Coffee

We here at Culinary Crafts are always on the look out for new, great venues for events and recently we came across the brand, spankin’ new Publik Coffee space!  Not only do the team at Publik Coffee Roasters brew a fine cup of coffee (and chai… and tea… and hot chocolate… and mint limeade…) but they also serve up a fine selection of gourmet toast, pastries, and muffins.  Oh ya, AND they have an incredible space for rent there too!  We were so bowled over by the space and the possibilities, that we couldn’t wait to share it with everyone!  Check it out!

Publik

Publik Coffee Roasters has its main space on 975 W. West Temple in downtown Salt Lake City, but if you are in the Park City area, they also serve up drinks and edibles at their second location in the Kimball Art Center.  (Plus another location is in the works in the Avenues!)  One of the many great things about Publik?  They do their best to embody their philosophy of “Planet over Profit” and strive to salvage, reclaim, and be green just as much as possible.  Plus, they use solar panels for power AND their buildings are LEED certified to boot!  A company after our heart, I tell you!

Publik2

Yummmm….  Delicious toast offerings and a fine beverage that is beautiful to boot.  What more could you ask for?

Publik3

This is the fabulous conference room that you can reserve for use (they have rates by the hour), as well as the gorgeous space that Publik Coffee Roasters uses for its day to day cafe operations.  How great is the industrial feel and the use of the reclaimed wood?  LOVE.

Publik4

Now we get to the main event (space)!  This fabulous (and large) space is SOOOO cool!  We love the industrial vibe, the exposed brick walls, and the reclaimed wood accents.  Perfect for the non-traditional bride or a fabulous corporate event.  The potential uses are just phenomenal!

Publik5

We cannot WAIT to do our first event there!  And thank you so much to the Publik Coffee team for giving Salt Lake another fabulous event space!  So awesome and we think it’ll be AMAZING!  Go grab some coffee and toast there next time you are in Salt Lake or Park City, and take a look around.  You’ll love it!  Happy exploring, everyone!
