The Brunch + Booze + YOU!

Posted on December 28, 2015


After two days straight of full course meals with plenty lasagne it took some doing to get myself out the house on the day after Boxing Day. Then again, food was once again the mission.

Some rainshowers blessed the latecomers as the event was extended till 8pm instead of 6pm as previously planned.

The layout

This brunch was nestled in the Carmel Valley Estate & I personally liked the details in the table layout.

There were flowers & lanterns and what seemed like a DIY table mat that fit perfectly. Who did this decor?

The New CaterersCandy Coated Christmas Brunch 2015-24

So I never knew who the caterers were before, but I know for sure who the caterers were last night! The food servers had branded tees and a lovely easy to read ‘standy’ that explained exactly what I was eating. To be fair, I would have still eaten not knowing exactly what it was, but I appreciate the education. Now I can say that “Double Black Smoked Pulled Pork” tasted amazing.

The extra large cocktail

Candy Coated had this… well.. this.. large… drink.. that they served to people. Because? well. Candy Coated?

Ok. What is this? NO seriously. What is this??? could someone explain? Where do I get this? I need this for my house. Seriously. Hello?

Here it is again... sigh. I need this in my life.

The Vibes

I must hand it to the Djs here. It takes a special skill to make people stand and dance in the mud. (Believe me, I saw it at my second to last Tropical LUAU.) You really have to know your crowd and have so much fun yourself that everyone is compelled to jump in. It was also the first time I got to really listen to mixology music and I found their mic man to be having a party by himself when everyone else was just standing around. After a few key song selections, everyone joined in!
