Mojitos, Margaritas & Mingle at Tacoma Lawn & Tennis Club

Last week we catered (The Vault Catering Co.) the summer social, Mojitos, Margaritas & Mingle at the Tacoma Lawn and Tennis Club.  It was an amazing lawn party overlooking the tennis courts & adjacent to the pool. I worked with their social chair (Karen Donahue) to create the look for this event. They wanted either turquoise & green or magenta & orange as their color inspiration -  I loved the magenta & orange idea because I has just done this color scheme for Zoobilee and thought it was a fun combo. I made the tissue poms in magenta and orange to be hung on the pool fence and in the trees by one of the buffets. They added the perfect pop of color against the brilliant green grass and trees. The menu was inspired by bite size appetizers with some comfort food. We served some delicious mojitos, margaritas (created by social chair, Karen Donahue - a recipe I want!), wine and beer to the guests. Below are some images from this fun party!

chocolate mouse cups topped with a triple chocolate brownie and fresh whip 

mojitos + lime = ingredients for a perfect mojito 

flowers moved onto the lawn for the party - topped with mini tiki torches added the perfect garden feel and ambiance once the sun went down
