We here at Culinary Crafts absolutely LOVE our Pop Up Restaurant series.  It is such a wonderful event which allows us to create truly one-of-a-kind dining experiences, which we love.  For our most recent dinner at The Tasting Room in Salt Lake City , our very own Mary Crafts-Homer sought to give away a pair of tickets to an unsuspecting couple – and we got it all on video!  Check it out!

It was so much fun to capture their reaction and also re-live this amazing menu again!  I’m sure we will be announcing more Pop Up Restaurant dates soon, so stay tuned!  Happy dining, everyone!

Spotlight On: Mary’s Wedding – Ceremony Menu

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Giveaways and Contests, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides

Firstly, we would like to congratulate Abby Shephard for being our random winner of the Gelato Giveaway!  Thank you to everyone for entering and look out for more giveaways coming up soon!  Secondly, we are so excited her at Culinary Crafts to begin the celebration of our Mary Crafts’s wedding weekend!!!  Just one day left and it all begins!  Today, we’d like to showcase the menu for Mary’s wedding ceremony luncheon.  Take it away Rachel!

Menu Card by Ann Elizabeth Designs

“When developing the menu for Mary, I tried to keep in mind both Mary’s immense love of Italy and also her passion for using only the freshest and most flavorful ingredients – and of course, keeping it local. At the ceremony luncheon, we’ll be serving all of the dishes family style.  I really loved this idea because it emphasizes the feeling of bringing these two families together.  It will also be held in the afternoon, so keeping the menu really light and fresh, as well as incorporating the ranch feel, was key in tying it all together.”

Thank you so much Rachel!  It sounds delicious and we simply cannot wait to see how it all comes together!!!

The Winner!

By | Giveaways and Contests

I am happy to unveil the winning Inspiration Board from our contest sponsored by our partners at Diamond Rental!  We really loved the simple elegance of the fresh green and earth toned color palette.  Excellent job Haley!  Here’s a little bit about her inspiration:

“For years now, I have dreamed of having my wedding in my parent’s yard. It is one of the most beautiful places I know – complete with an iron gazebo with swings overlooking a pond that has three small waterfalls. Its meandering stone pathways that lead to open expanses of green grass and unique variety of trees make it a magical place! The colors I have chosen are green, dark brown and ivory. When I told my mom what my colors were and that I wanted to have my reception outside, she said, ‘Great! We have green grass and green trees and lots of chocolate brown dirt in the flower beds!’ I am happy that my colors will be an extension of the beauty of the yard. My plan is to dress my eight bridesmaids in chocolate brown and my maid of honor in green. My own gown is ivory and in it, I turn into a princess! I want the reception to be simple, yet elegant and I want my guests to feel as if they can linger and chat and enjoy each other and the yard. I plan on using ivory linens with green table toppers and beautiful glass hurricane lamps with candles on each table. Since my reception will be on a summer evening, my dream is to serve gelato in sugar cones and have guests hold sparklers over the heads of my husband and I on our send-off. I want a simple three-tiered cake with chocolate brown ribbon on each tier and a flower girl dressed in ivory waking around handing out wrapped candies to guests.  I have decided to only serve desserts at my reception – along with the gelato, I want to serve small finger desserts and fruit – my only criteria is that they be beautiful and delicious! I can hardly wait to marry my best friend and love of my life and I look forward to a beautiful dream-come-true reception in my own back yard!”

Thank you so much Haley and congratulations!  We are so happy for you and your husband-to-be!
