Hannah Lee's Bridal "Coffee"

One of my absolute favorite types of functions to cater is a Bridal Tea or Shower. I love everything about them. The pretty, dainty foods; the punch; the gifts; the flower arrangements; the tablescape; and getting to use all my pretty serving pieces (or should I say, my mom's serving pieces!). Love them! They are as fun to plan as they are to set up and cook for. The latest Bridal function I catered was referred to as a "Coffee"...instead of a "Tea" or "Brunch". Very unique, I'd never heard that before. We created a menu of breakfast finger foods, a coffee flavored punch, a mimosa bar and coffee bar. It was a huge success and so beautiful! Several of the old ladies congregated around the coffee punch and kept guzzling glass after glass. Such a fun function and a nice change from a traditional Bridal Tea or Brunch. Here is the menu as well as some photos of the "Coffee". Enjoy! Happy Sunday. :)
