Drop-off Party Platters On Your Platters or Ours...Just Ask!

This Marinated Tuscan Antipasto Platter is a wonderful appetizer for cocktail parties, wedding receptions and dinner parties. We prepared this one for a small drop-off Tallahassee wedding reception at the bride and groom's home in the Killearn area. The bride even furnished her own favorite serving platters for us to use. This is always an option. If you would like for us to use your platters for a drop-off or even pick-up catering order, we will need to make arrangements to get the platters several days in advance.

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.
