Keeping it Green


This is the second time we've had the pleasure to work with Mike & Lizzie Thrasher. We were honored when they asked us to cater the food for their big award from the United States Green Building Council--The Platinum LEED Certification and a Net Zero Energy-- This is the highest award given to developments with the highest standards of environmentally friendly building practices. May 9th, County officials, USGBC Members and local residents gathered to celebrate at The Rosedale & Sears Cottage. 


"We hope our 'show' and 'tell' project becomes recognized globally as a benchmark in sustainable working and living."- Lizzie Thrasher 

Adding to "keeping it local," Kings Family Farm donated the tomatoes we used in our tarts and as well as the zucchini blooms {that were picked at noon}, which were stuffed with lavender ricotta and fried in a light locally brewed beer batter, severed at 5 p.m. to 100 guests.

The general store poured wine and made Mimosa to boot. We had our team and a few of The Cafes.
 Mike Thrasher, so kind and talented, put together our Table to Farm Dinner logo.

Keep an eye out for them starting in Fall 2012 and check out SRQ's August issue as they featured us  and the cover girl, Mrs. Shelby King herself.

The purple and khaki undertones made for a perfect romantic yet carefree feel as they celebrated life and love on their special day.

Vision of Beauty


Couple Justin and Elise flew from New York to make their dream wedding come true. 

Bride Elise, from Australia, is in theater, so she had a very clear vision of what her wedding would be like. With the help of The Loft 5 and other vendors, her vision became reality, making their special day absolutely unforgettable. 



The wedding took place on the beach on Anna Maria Island and a trolly took the wedding party to the Waterfront restaurant, which Justin's cousin owns, where they shared a beautiful evening of celebrating their love with family and friends. 



A special moment for groom Justin was when he and his grandfather made table numbers for the reception. It was one of those details that made their day that much more special.

Southern Charm

Hosted by her mother, Iris and her Aunt, Mesia, bride to be, Lacey Shuttleworth's bridal shower was right out of colonial times.

The setting was as if you were in old Charleston, South Carolina, with a long drive way leading up to a beautiful colonial style home. Guests were greeted by a harpist playing music picked up by the cool breeze.

A young man served refreshments as a Marc Jacob stiletto was passed around to be signed by guests.
As guests walked in the charm continued as beautiful details surrounded the home. The foyer was filled with gifts and her aunt's wedding dress was on display.


There were three tea stations with English and German tea cups. Drinks included strawberry mint water and a Champaign cocktail. Private chefs prepared food that was taken to the dinning table and displayed elegantly. Last but certainly not least there was lavender cookies with a rose water icing that blended so well into the mood of the day.






The bridal shower was a beautiful day filled with love and happiness as the bride and her close family and friends celebrated the upcoming nuptials. Guests enjoyed the southern charm of the private estate while sipping on cool refreshments and nibbling on delectable treats.
