Spokane Preservations Advocates Gala

One of the best part of our job is when we get a client that is willing to think outside of the box and take on the challenge of creating a buffet without using a table or tablecloth. I know, it sounds outrageous. We were presented with the opportunity by the Spokane Preservation Advocates this past weekend and jumped at the challenge. The Spokane Preservation Advocates fight to preserve the historic buildings in the greater Spokane area. Each year they host a huge themed gala to raise funds to support their cause. This year the theme was “Denim and Diamonds”. So, we created two menus, one to represent the Diamond side of the theme and one to represent the Denim side. The Diamond buffet was set in an upscale jewelry store and utilized two jewelry cases as the buffet tables kindly lent to us by The Jewelry Design Center. The Denim buffet was set at a car wrecking yard and utilized a car hood as the buffet and offered our patrons plates held in a Craftsman toolbox, salad served from a galvanized tub with a host of car parts and hub caps completing the decor. The event was a huge success and we are all very proud to have been part of it.
