A La Carte Event Pavilion: Open House
What?! No pictures? A La Carte chose me as the featured photographer for their Open House recently- but I didn't need a camera. Scratch that, I should have brought one, but instead you'll have to use your imagination! They went all out, decorating the huge Grand Ballroom A for a wedding, Grand Ballroom C for holiday parties and desserts, and they had an Ybor cigar roller on the outdoor Terrace Patio. Our room, the Terrace Salon (with one select vendor in each category) had several vignettes set up, showcasing different palettes with a chair on a table, corresponding linens, place settings, and centerpiece. Food was everywhere- A La Carte is an Outback concept after all! I was set up next to my friend Ed Culp from CVP. Across the room was Tracie Domino from Tiffany & Co. (those blue boxes are my favorite), dress designer Sam Varela, invitations from Paper Players, and nearby hotel Chase Suites. Music was provided by Rhythm Method. Here's the kicker: there was chocolate, steps away from me, and somehow I never made it over to Debbie's Chocolates! That's okay, I was meeting lots of people, which I do enjoy. Thanks A La Carte!
