Strawberry Festival Garden Cart

Olympia Catering at the Davis Islands Garden Club Bridal Soiree

Recently we had the opportunity to participate in the Davis Islands Garden Club Bridal Soiree in the Garden. We absolutely love working at the garden club! It is a great place to have an event: it is private, easy to access, lots of parking, there are outside and inside areas, it is beautifully landscaped, and has a huge kitchen for us to work in.

We served a couple of hors d’oeuvres at the soiree featuring strawberries. Since they are at peak season and so delicious, we really wanted to honor the fruit. We also put everything together on our garden cart, which can be rented for any events we cater. We have used the cart in numerous other ways, the most popular being for beverage and dessert stations. For this event we decorated the cart with fresh garden flowers and hand-made chalkboard signs.
