Western Union Inspiration Shoot: The Food


I know many of you remember this BEAUTIFUL inspiration shoot that Culinary Crafts did recently at the LDW Ranch.  Well, not only was the setting gorgeous, but the food, well,  it was AMAZING!  Now, I might be a bit biased, but it seriously was SO much fun to create this menu and I couldn't help but share it with you all!  Check it out! LDW_Food Firstly, I have to say that creating a menu that will share such a pretty table is the bee's knees.  MOOD Events & Scenemakers hit the design out of the park!  Love, love, love. LDW_Food2 On to the food!  To start the cocktail hour out right, we created this artisan cheese display featuring a whole honeycomb.  I love the visual impact the honeycomb brought to this station! LDW_Food8 We also created an assortment of savory macaroons and savory shortbreads to pair with our Tea-tini bar, which we'll feature soon! LDW_Food4   Isn't this place setting pretty?  And the leather seating tags, designed by our very own Mary Crafts-Homer, were a fun keepsake! LDW_Food3 Love the Aged Parmesan Cheese & Sun Dried Tomato Skewer with a Rosemary Sprig starter - and if that wasn't enough - our first course was this Beef Carpaccio with Caper Berries.  Such a stunning way to kick off this meal! LDW_Food5   What could follow that first course, you ask?  Well, this delicious Center-cut Pork Chop with Compressed Melon and Balsamic accompanied by House-made Cornbread that was baked in individual porcelain bowls.  Yum!   LDW_Food6 Lastly, the dessert!  We served a decadent Chocolate Ganache and Salted Caramel Tart that was simply to die for!  We also had the pleasure of having one of the AMAZING cakes made by One Sweet Slice (oh, how we miss them) that was simply perfect as well! This menu was beyond perfection, just like this entire shoot!  We so enjoyed being able to join forces with some of our FAVORITE vendors and love every detail of the day!  Happy dreaming, everyone! Check out more Salt Lake City, Park City, and Utah County catering at!
