A Toast to 65 Years!
You couldn’t ask for better weather and bluer skies for this 65th wedding anniversary celebration! Betty and Lynn celebrated their “Blue Sky” or “Blue Sapphire” anniversary at a gorgeous private home in Shady Canyon a couple weeks ago. The weather was warm and the day was ideal.
The warm day called for cool beverages including Spa Water with Cucumber and Lemon, Sparkling Water and Sodas for the kids in addition to wine, champagne and spirits.
Tray passed hors d’oeuvres included Short Rib and Wild Mushroom Pot Pies.
Artichoke and Goat Cheese Stuffed Shrimp.
And Brie Phyllo Cuplettes which Chef James made on site. The mini appetizer is finished with our Truffle Infused Honey and topped with Toasted Almonds.
Dinner was served buffet style in the expansive back yard.
The blessed and happy couple can be seen here being served some of the delicious meal we cooked up for them.
The buffet included the TGIS Signature tossed salad presented in a martini glass with herbed bread sticks.
In addition to Grilled Asparagus and Roasted Brussel Sprouts with balsamic and Proscuitto, guests were offered garlic mashed potatoes and sweet potato fries.
Our Chef Will manned the grill cooking the Honey Molasses BBQ Chicken.
Other main course options included Filet Mignon with Chimichurri Sauce, Horseradish Crema and Bradied Demi Glaze AND Shallot and Honey Truffle Salmon finished off with garlic olive and basil coulis.
Desserts were a crowd favorite and included Red Velvet and Chocolate Truffle Lollipops, Mini Vanilla Cupcakes dusted with Metalic Silver Edible Sugar and Strawberry Shortcake Shooters.
Traditional Chocolate Chip Cookies were set out for the kids (and a few grown ups as well).
The grand finale was a small Two Tiered Cake. The bottom tier was Marble Cake with Bavarian Cream Filling and the top tier had Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Filling.
Guests all received White and Milk Chocolate Dipped Pears with a special message from the hosts.
We all want to wish Betty and Lynn the happiest of anniversaries! Here is to many more yet to come. Cheers!
