Fun Party and Vignette Ideas

Kathy G. is a caterer (and so much more)
in Birmingham, Alabama.  When my stepson got
married a four years ago in Birmingham, we used Kathy G.
for the after-rehearsal party and also for a kind of
"meet and greet the bride" luncheon the day before the wedding.

Since then, I have been receiving emails that her company
sends out once a month that are packed with pictures of
events that she has recently done and even recipes.

The email I got today featured an event that she hosted
herself to reveal the renovations that had been made to
one of the event venues that she owns.

The appetizer reception was full of good ideas for
decorating not only for a party but for composing
fun and interesting vignettes in your home.

The photos were taken by Moesia Davis in the Garden Cafe on the grounds of
The Botanical Garden in Birmingham. Kathy G.' has also formed branch of her
company called KG Designs that provides display and decor for parties and
weddings.  The lead designer for KG Designs is Andy Hopper.

Here are some of my favorite ideas:

This mantle display is also interesting.

You can follow Kathy G. and her talented staff via
 her Facebook page, her website, or her blog which all
have fabulous recipes and pictures.



  1. Why have I never considered using a candle holder that way? Duh! Thanks for the tips. ~ Maureen

  2. Hi Miss Kitty, I see why you used this caterer for your after-rehearsal dinner and the luncheon. I love the way the food was displayed on the buffet. So much great inspiration here to take home. I love the tall candlesticks and the bookcase! A great idea for a buffet. I've been many times to the Garden cafe at the beautiful Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I love that place!
    Yes, I've heard that saying "when Southerners go to Heaven they have to go through Atlanta". I won't mind that one bit!
