Tie The Knot In Style With A Canopy Rose Wedding Reception

At Canopy Rose we are always cooking up lots of fun ideas for your Tallahassee Wedding Reception. Here are a few of the favorite hot trends we've spotted for 2008 and 2009 Weddings.

A Taste of The South Pacific
With the South Pacific as one of the hot honeymoon destinations of many brides and grooms, we turn to the flavors of Tahiti and Bora Bora for inspiration!

A Taste of The Mediterranean
Sicily, Tuscany, The Greek Islands and other romantic hotspots of the Mediterranean serve as the inspiration for this wedding reception of little bites.

Champagne Tasting Bars
You purchase the champagne and we will set up a gorgeous champagne bar for you with a dazzling selection of mixers for your guests to create their very own signature cocktails.

Latin Cuisine With The Popular Mojito
Latin Cuisine is a hot, hot, hot trend. Pair your celebration with a signature cocktail like Mango Mojitos and your event will be very au courant! Mojitos are a very "in" cocktail.

Old World Opulence and Grandeur
As little girls, many of us dreamed of a Marie Antoinette-Style of French Opulence for our wedding day. From gilded place settings to dramatic buffet centerpieces over elegant ivory brocade linen table dressings. Big parlor ferns, candleabras, fabulous flowers, candles and peacock feathers add the high drama.

Eco-Chic: A Gorgeously Green Wedding Reception
Every last bite of this reception pays homage to being a good steward of the environment. The menu features organic, locally grown foods, a smoothie bar and a fabulous Back-To Eden Garden Party ambiance.

Action Food Stations With Chef Attendants
These are very popular, very exciting and quite entertaining! Lots of brides are opting for more of a swanky cocktail wedding reception with fun action food stations, rather than the traditional plated dinner or dinner buffet. Culinary entertainment is very hot!

While the mashed potato martini bars are considered fashionably "out-of style" these days in the big cosmopolitan cities, we are still happy to provide this station for our Tallahassee area weddings since brides here still love them! At Canopy Rose we have often tweaked the concept and used cheese grits or risotto in place of the mashed potatoes.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that the food at your wedding reception, should be based on what you want. Trends are fun to watch and be aware of BUT they are not the final word! A word of caution: It can be easy to lose track of what is really important if you get too centered on creating the perfect wedding. Stay focused on the celebration of love that you will be sharing with your family and friends and the new life you and your fiancee are embarking on together. The wedding feast is one day, but your marriage will be for eternity!

Kathi Wins Writing Award

Canopy Rose owner, Kathi Dameron has won the 2nd Place Award in the Newspaper Article Category at the 2008 Southern Christian Writer's Conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for her article, Simple Act of Sharing Food Can Truly Bring People Together. This article appeared in the Northeast Chronicle - Tallahassee Democrat during the spring of 2008 in the Entertaining with Kathi column.

Grand Prize Winner In Cooking Contest

The year was 1987 when Kathi Dameron, a passionate gourmet cook who spent her days teaching 32 second graders, and her weekends hosting fun parties for her circle of friends at her waterfront home on Florida's North Hutchinson Island, won two prizes in the first cooking contest she ever entered. One of these prizes was the coveted Grand Prize. At that moment Kathi knew that one day in the not too distant future her special dream to launch her very own catering company would be realized. Seven years later that day arrived with the birth of Canopy Rose in Florida's Capital City in 1994.
