Celebrate! Carmel Home Birthday Party

Life is meant to be celebrated! Especially when the celebrations are surrounding birthday milestones. Earlier this fall we had the pleasure of working with one of our long-standing clients on a special birthday celebration at their Carmel, Indiana home.




Like any great party, especially a birthday party, guests want to be social with others and that can be achieved by choosing a stations style meal service. We loved the menu that was selected for this event. It was the perfect mix of passed hors d’oeuvres, stations and action stations for mixing and mingling. They included our favorite station of all: Donut Sundaes! We truly don’t know anyone that doesn’t love fresh made cake donuts with creamy ice cream and a variety of toppings.
