It’s not a new idea, but an awesome one! Bring some of the seaside to your wedding with an oyster bar! We’re so lucky to live in the Bay Area, where oysters are brought in fresh from the Pacific Ocean for your guests to enjoy. An oyster station is a fun way to welcome your guests to the cocktail hour at your reception. The shucker on site will offer different types of oysters and shuck as the guests order their favorites. It’s also super fun to have a sauce station nearby with loads of specialty hot sauces, lemons and limes. We have a wedding coming up that has an oyster station, a charcuterie station and a California cheese station. THEN dinner begins after everyone has had their fill! It’s like taking 150 of your friends with you to your favorite restaurant! Enjoy!

February is a great month for corporate parties. Whether it is to give awards to top employees, to celebrate a great year, or to just appreciate your staff and colleagues with a get together, consider having your gathering catered by a full service events company. (hint, hint – we do that). We had the pleasure of creating two events in San Francisco last month; The Box SF, www.theboxsf.com and Tradition Bar, www.tradbar.com, and one huge event at our favorite east bay venue, The Fox Theater, www.thefoxoakland.com. At Tradition Bar in the Tenderloin, our client appreciated their employees for exceeding their sales quota by renting the entire space! The easy going ambiance was created with candles and small groupings of cocktail tables to make conversation flow. The guests were treated to a selection of artisanal cocktails and a menu of Vegetarian Antipasto with Baba Ganoush, Dolmas, Humus, Olives and Mushrooms. Also on the stations were Sambuca Glazed Prawns, Authentic Samosas, Pulled Pork Sliders with Southern Apple Cider Slaw, Wild Salmon Ginger Cakes and Thai Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce, with a dessert buffet to satisfy the sweet cravings in everyone!!
At one of our favorite venues in the city, The Box SF, our client wanted the theme of their awards party to be “think outside the box”. What a perfect venue for this employee appreciation party! The guests were treated to beer tastings by Pyramid Breweries, www.pyramidbrew.com and Lagunitas Brewing Company, www.lagunitas.com . The food was served on a table that is an ancient Chinese wooden gate, complete with iron hinges intact. It’s gorgeous! The rooms have a beautiful view of the lights of the city and the feel of the old Hearst Printing Building lends itself to a fun rustic urban cocktail party. The guests enjoyed traditional Spanish Tapas. . .Marcona Almonds, Mini Lamb Chops, Tortilla Espanola and Paella, as well as Tapas With An Asian Flair. . .Sushi, Spring Rolls, Sesame Crab Cakes and Dim Sum. Then the night was danced away with the cool sounds of Alxndr, Disc Jockey, www.alxndr.dj.
Over to the East Bay in Oakland, the marquee at the stunning Fox Theater was inviting guests to enter into a world of theater history to receive their staff awards. This venue can seat 550 guests for an elegant sit down dinner with a standing cocktail hour too! The foyer was abuzz with guests stopping at the step and repeat to get their photos taken and sneaking in the photo booth to don disguises and break the ice with their coworkers. After noshing on passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, the guests took their seats for the main course of Roasted Filet of Beef with Carmelized Onions and Shitake Mushrooms in a Zinfandel Reduction Sauce, Smashed Potatoes, Roasted Garlic Chicken, Farmer’s Market Vegetable Packets and for the many vegetarians and vegans in the room, the Vegan Wild Mushroom Polenta. The awards were Chocolate Oscars and the crowd went wild with appreciation for their fellow workers.
Thanks to our wonderful clients for allowing us to create the magic!!

Cheers!

It Was A Celebration To Remember!

On January 30th, we celebrated Blue Heron’s 25th year in business at the Piedmont Community Hall, www.ci.piedmont.ca.us/recreation/facilities, and it was quite a party! We welcomed the Blue Heron family of staff, vendors, even other caterers, to help us celebrate the fun times we’ve had over the years. The stories were priceless, with the original owners, Karen Bolla and Lisa Wilson talking about their starting years and then how it felt to hand over the reigns of their “Heron” to us. One of Blue Heron’s first bartenders, Phil Caires, and first server, Janet Jacobson, were in top form in their original suits that we used to politely require our staff to wear. The step and repeat was a huge hit, with Ditto www.dittopho.com, taking perfect pictures of everyone in their cocktail attire. Our photo booth, provided by Archival Photo Booth, www.archivalphotobooth.com, was so much fun they had everyone laughing through the night! Jason at Quantum Music Event Planners, www.qmepplanners.com played the tunes that we remember hearing at our events through the years and did beautiful lighting throughout the hall. The evening included lots of traditional Mexican dance music that kept our head chef, Humberto, (who happened to have his birthday that day) dancing with everyone! He outdid himself and his kitchen staff with a menu that took us back to some original recipes and included some timeless ones that have been favorites with our clients for years. Check out this menu!

She has also been in business for 25 years (or more) and we really appreciated her heartfelt words on the mic. And Doughnut Dolly, www.doughnutdolly.com made us awesome filled doughnuts with our name and logo on the paper bags! They were gone in a heartbeat!
Other fun things were Blue Heron lapel pins, which we see our staff and friends wearing proudly around town, a blue candy buffet, blue pens and blue signature cocktails, The Skyy Blue Heron at The Blue Heron Sapphire in test tubes, just for fun!
Here's a few pictures of our crew and a photo of our original logo in 1988!

Thanks to all who helped us celebrate this milestone! Cheers!

You may ask why have a backdrop at your wedding or your party? Well, one really good reason is that you can dress up any space to look like you're at another destination. A rustic wooden backdrop in an urban building gives the feel of being at an uber cool ranch house without the added expense of actually renting the place! It also adds another dimension to posed photos. If you choose a backdrop that reflects your favorite spaces, then it's a very special place to have your photos taken. Do you love color? Splash some paint on metal or on wood, old doors, pallets, and put them together to make your perfect backdrop. There's lots of DIY ideas on www.pinterest.com or ask your planner, caterer or local rental company what they have. From Asian gates to lace and pearl fabric, to paper mache cranes that seem to float in the breeze, there's something for everyone. Have fun designing yours!

Love,

The Blue Heron Team

An entire blog about tea? Well, coffee gets the spotlight these days with the cool espresso bars that are available for weddings. We love to work with Travellin' Joe Espresso, www.lattesandwaffles.com for everything from coffee to espresso drinks to Italian doughnuts! Being a tea afficionado, I wanted to talk about the importance of having a fun selection of teas for guests at your wedding. Tea is comfort. Tea is an aromatic adventure and has a history all it's own. What is classier than a beautiful oiled wooden tea box with a selection of teas from all over the world? Add some raw sugar cubes, some local honey, some warm cream, and you've got a 5 star tea bar for your guests! We have recently become friends with Ali Roth of Blue Willow Tea, www.bluewillowtea.com and we've fallen in love with her passion for serving up the most aromatic teas we've ever tasted. She has selections of Black, Green, Herbal Teas and Blends that she comes up with that are out of this world! When her mother got married last year, she made a special blend, labeled it with their names on it and called it "Lover's Tea". It got us hooked! She sells in bulk and we bag the teas in individual cloth tea bags so your tea is fresh right before you drink it!! If you're looking for something fun and warm and cozy for your wedding this year, try a tea bar and see how everyone loves it (and you!).

Don't forget to slurp your tea for the best flavor!

Cheers!

Hi Friends!
You all know us as a caterer for beautiful weddings, elegant galas, any and all types of parties. But, did you know we are also very involved in community events and fundraisers? Over the years, we’ve chosen to partner with many non-profits, schools and other wonderful causes in and around our beautiful Bay Area. In 2013, we were proud to be a sponsor of Oakland Local’s Hack The Hood event, where youth were honored for their commitment to learning about using computers to their advantage and getting ahead in the business world. It was a heartwarming event and ceremony. We were so proud of the “kids” and could tell they had the support of every person in that room. Heading across the bridge, for the past 3 years, we have been a sponsor of the San Francisco Green Film Festival. This annual event has grown into a week-long collection of small films and gatherings. Their common goal is to educate as many people as possible on how to help our planet be a safe, non-toxic world. Check them out at www.sfgreenfilmfest.org and try to catch a film next year. You’ll be enlightened on the subject of living a healthy life that in turn creates a healthy world.
We won’t bore you with all of the causes we have supported in 2013, but two that really stand out are the Sequoia Nursery School, www.sequoiakids.org, and Teen Challenge, www.teenchallenge.net. The Sequoia Nursery School Auction and Fundraiser was such a feel-good event! It’s 100% for the kids’ education, community and future. The parents put together such a fabulous event that we want to be a part of it again next year! Those kids are going to be quite a force when they’re running their own businesses in Oakland! Teen Challenge is the organization that we donate food from events to. They do amazing work with teens and we are happy to help feed those hungry kids as often as we can. We feel that anything we can do to help needy causes in our community will result in a solid foundation for those they serve.
Thank you all for supporting us this past year so we can support these and more worthwhile causes.
Happy Holidays to you and your friends and families!

Love, Your Blue Heron Team

Hello friends! Let's get right to the meat of the matter. Sorry, I HAD to say that. We're talking to ALOT of couples who want vegan and gluten free menus for their weddings. Wow, have times changed! Vegan and gluten free used to be so limited as to any creativity with foods but now, anything goes. You can have your gluten free and vegan cake and eat it too! From appetizers to desserts and wedding cakes, the sky is the limit. Gluten Free? Curried Deviled Eggs, Caprese on a Stick, Endive with Smoked Trout Salad, Seared Ahi or Scallops, Filet of Beef Rolls with Horseradish Cream, Sushi of any kind, Spring Rice Rolls and so much more! Vegan? Empanadas de Picadillo, Thai Vegetable Satay with Coconut Milk Peanut Sauce, White Bean Spread with Grilled Figs and Mint, Tiny Red Potatoes with Basil Tomato Chutney, Corn Fritters with Chipotle Jam - hungry yet? You can now get vegan and gluten free filled pastas (ravioli, tortellini and more), breads, crackers, cakes and desserts! These items are in such demand that they are more readily available and definitely tasting better than years ago. When you're looking for a caterer for your wedding or event, and you want a vegan and/or gluten free menu, be sure to ask them if they make all of their sauces and other foods in house. If they buy sauces, chances are they have something in them that you don't want to eat; such as, soy sauce (not gluten free), bread crumbs and other fillers. Don't be shy about asking what's in the cakes and desserts at the bakery when doing your tasting. Sometimes they offer vegan or gluten free but there's some ingredient that's added that they didn't think about. We're very excited about giving our clients exactly what they want and creating these new menus that make everyone happy! Enjoy!

Hello Friends!

We hope you had a fun, adventurous summer and are ready to feel the Fall chill and see the leaves turn (yes they do, even in California). We've been so lucky to have catered so many beautiful weddings this year. We were talking amongst our team about some of the questions we are asked when meeting with newly engaged couples and one that seems to be prevalent and extremely important is "what happens to the extra food?". It's a great question! No one feels good about throwing food away, yet we want the plates to be full and bountiful looking for the guests, even through the last table that goes through the buffet line. We offer a choice of taking the extra food home for your out of town guests, or just for you, or we will donate it to a local food bank. For years, we have (and we still do) donate excess food to Teen Challenge, www.teenchallenge.net. In fact, we love to share our awesome food around the community, providing donations for museum fundraisers, youth groups, community meetings and more! The truth is, we try our best to be sustainable by not over buying in the first place, and then we make a choice to give what we can to people in need. After all, we do love to feed people - that's why we're in the business. So you can feel good when all is said and done, feel good about being a part of a sustainable community, feel good about the team you choose to support you on your special day.

Enjoy the Fall, stay warm and eat well!

Love, The Blue Heron Team

Yes! Not only is it now the "thing" to do, but it is a feel good gift to give your guests. They've been dancing, drinking, talking, having the best of times and it's time to head out at midnight. Do you hear stomachs growling? We do! Food trucks are one option, yet they are expensive and some venues require special permits to allow them on the property. Conveniently, caterers are picking up on this fantastically fun idea and offering up some very creative late night snacks. The favorite seems to be mini burgers with french fries, donuts and s'mores. Soup shots with crackers or bread is a fun one, as is grilled cheese sandwiches and chips. We love the "market" look with bags of chips, popcorn, candy bars and juices or sodas. One of our favorites are the Chinese to go containers with noodles and toppings to make your own noodle snack. Then there's the waffles with fried chicken and a fried egg on top. Wow - anyone hungry? The possibilities are endless and it's fun just thinking about how to "wow" your friends and family with an exit snack. We'd love to hear your ideas too!

Congratulations to you all and happy planning!

Love, the Blue Heron Team

Comfort and style are a great combination for your guests at your wedding reception! It’s easy to make that happen – just ask your caterer or event planner about the different options for lounge furniture for your venue. It’s affordable and it’s a perfect enhancement for the beautiful look of your party. From ultra modern to quaint vintage, there's a look you can create to match your vision for your decor. Here’s a few that are very popular right now! Cheers!
