Eleven Courses Holiday Soiree

 In Blog
Baltimore kicked off the holiday season with a soirée to remember. Hosted by Caitie Welch of Betty Lou Events and Melissa & Jim Benson, Owners of Eleven Courses Catering at the Liriodendron, the room was filled with magic that only this time of year can share.
Steelcut decked the halls with non-traditional textured magnolia leaves, dark red roses, and hand painted gold greenery while The Concert Truck serenaded nearly 40 of Baltimore’s best creatives in Baltimore as they sipped hot chocolate and festive cocktails cozied on velvet settees provided by Emerald Event Design. Small bites were wrapped link presents and served in other whimsical ways, by servers wearing Tartan plaid ties to match the runners in the tablescape.
Directly following cocktail, guests were invited to be seated at charming Barnes Farm Tables with chic place settings from Pretty Little Wedding Co. where guests enjoyed an incredible 3 course dinner.
Each seat was set with a hand lettered ornament by The Letter Grey and delicate menus by Ruby the Fox.
Urban Row Photography, known for a contemporary, dynamic and sophisticated style and Rivion Weddings, the go-to for where character meets quality, captured it all beautifully and truly brought the spirit of the holidays to life.
