We are always striving to provide our customers with the latest, greatest services and trends offered within the wedding industry. In keeping with this effort, two of the Hamby team members attended the Wedding MBA Conference at the Las Vegas Convention Center, September 12-15, 2011. The conference was focused on the business side of the wedding industry, with particular focus on marketing and customer service. Allison Orvin, Customer Relations Representative and Candice Wigfield, Director of Marketing and Community Relations, represented Hamby at the conference and made many new contacts from across the United States, Mexico and the British Virgin Islands. We love meeting new people in our industry, as it gives us insight into ways that we can improve and expand our offerings at Hamby. Expect some new changes to Hamby’s look, including a new logo and increased activity on our blog, Facebook & Twitter!
Our menu included Hamby’s renowed Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits with Tasso Gravy, Sliced Beef Tenderloin, Mexican Layer Dip, Empanadas and many other delicious items! Feast your eyes…
The Charleston Bridal Show
We were so privileged to host the 2010 Charleston Bridal Show at the Gaillard Auditorium last Sunday, July 11, 2010
The booths echoed with the pitter patter of brides to be
With the grooms tagging along saying, “Why Lord? Why me?”
Dashing from booth to booth to make plans for the special day
There’s so much to see and do at each and every display
There’s no better place to be than The Charleston Bridal Show
To find out what you need, who to call, what to know
From styling your hair to picking your dress
Picking linens, tables and chairs, my what a mess
But when the brides need to know where to go for their food
There was no competition…not to be arrogant or rude
The Hamby booth was adorned with bright linens that caught your eye
And Southern appetizers that no one could pass by
The Wedding Cakes towered high to the sky
While little Charleston Tea Cakes were layered tier high
With the reputation that proceeds
We at Hamby have just what a bride needs
To make this day of all days
One to remember for always
We at Hamby Catering and Events hope to provide you with everything that you need and desire when celebrating your wedding. If you were unable to come see us at the Bridal Show, please send us your contact information or call us to schedule an appointment to get more information or schedule a tasting.
Why bake when there is Watermelon Cake?
Healthy, Delicious and Refreshing
Take a look at one of our chef’s innovative and inspiring wedding “cakes”. James Johnson, Hamby Catering’s master pastry chef, designed and created this healthy, artistic, and fabulous watermelon display to resemble an actual decorated wedding cake. This healthy and fun alternative could be the talk of any occasion. It could easily serve as a groom’s cake, the solution to a sweet tooth craving at a family reunion, or as a wonderful substitute to the ever popular and traditional fruit display.
James hand carved each of the “flowers” that adorned the cake, magically turning fruits into flowers. Cantaloupe daisies, honeydew asters and papaya lotus blossoms accented the magnificent, unique, creation.
Let us not forget the overwhelming advantages of the ever so indulging watermelon. Did you know that watermelon is 92% water, contains no fat, no cholesterol, and is a significant source of vitamin A and C, fiber, and potassium? In addition, watermelon serves as a popular, widely available treat in many cultures around the world. Serving as a desert, a snack, a pickle, or a compliment to a summer salad, watermelons have satisfied our cravings for years and years.
So forget the old saying, “A moment on the lips forever on the hips”. Let our watermelon cake put the cool on your lips while shedding the weight from your hips. So here it is…a beautiful wedding cake that you can indulge in to your heart’s content… your healthy heart’s content that is!
