Delicious Ideas For A Catered Elegant Southern Brunch With A Tallahassee Twist









We are loving the idea of this dish. Imagine the taste of tender asparagus kissed with lemon-herb butter and accompanied by a Fluffy Cream Cheese Biscuit filled with Brown Sugar Smoked Ham, Figgy Port Chutney and a decadent Blue Cheese Butter Spread. Delicious and popping with flavor!


Aren't these just gorgeous? We think these beauties would be delicious anytime of the day.
Imagine the oohs and aahs of your guests when they spot these Broiled Blackberry Apricots with Marscapone and a garnish of Pistachio Nuts. 





Bacon Roses! We're popping with ideas for the buffet incorporating these savory sticks.





Baked Grits with Mushroom Sauce. Our favorite place to procure grits for catering jobs, is a bit of a jaunt, but worth every mile. Bradley's Country Store, a Tallahassee institution, located way out Centerville Road near Moccasin Gap is the only place Canopy Rose will get our grits. 






A Mimosa Punch... You'll want to hand your guests one as soon as they arrive.

Looking for other fabulous ideas for a brunch party in Tallahassee, we invite you to pop over to our Pinterest Board. We have one that is set up just for brunches and is packed with delicious ideas. There are over 200 ideas to choose from just on that board alone!

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.
