The décor was stylish, the music upbeat, and the bite-size nibbles and drinks flowed continuously for most of the night. Last night’s successful Heirloom Catering and Event Design launch party was held at the trendy The Loft at 600 F and featured a whimsical, yet artistic theme. The party had a good turnout, with writers, bloggers, fellow event planners, and PR reps making up the majority of the guest list. There was a sampling of 12 different boutique bites that included items like crispy sweet potato boats with sustainable scallop ceviche and cilantro blossom, sriracha lime shrimp with carrot radish slaw on a petite steamed bun, and mini mac ‘n’ cheese balls with wild caught lobster and aged gruyere. There was also a selection of mini cocktails that featured local liquors such as Green Hat Gin and One Eight Distilling. Three desserts were serve that included a baklava bread pudding, mini Belgian waffles topped with bananas foster or Greek yogurt cheesecake, and a selection of mini eclairs from g’eclairs.
