Have you ever been to the Kapok Special Events Center in Clearwater, Florida? This lavish event space opened as a restaurant in the 50s and through many decades has remained a charming space to host an event!
The team over at the Kapok has recently made improvements to the space and decided to celebrate with an open house. If you’re wondering how much it has changed, don’t worry – the true character of the Kapok is still shining with the extravagant charms, columns, statues and sparkling chandeliers!
When the wonderful ladies at the Kapok called on us to cater this event, we were overflowing with excitement! We put together a colorful menu with several different types of cuisine to thrill the palette. The custom menu is listed below with gorgeous pictures from Richard Harrell Photography.
