Spoleto SCENE White Party

Hamby was honored to be part of the Thursday, June 7 Spoleto SCENE 7th Annual White Party, held atop 77 Wentworth Street (Neil Stevenson Architects) overlooking downtown Charleston. Although the previous few days had been rainy and overcast, the skies were clear for the White Party, allowing guests to enjoy a rooftop bathed in an orange & pink sunset.

Hamby offered the following light bites for White Party attendees:

– Skewered chicken & waffles drizzled with maple syrup

– Angus beef mini sliders topped with a red wine reduction, blue cheese and arugula…served with oven roasted mini potatoes (purple, golden & russet) AKA – “Taters & Sliders”

– Night-night takeaway treats: Candied apples & cheddar popcorn

The menu was thoughtfully complimented by ICEBOX Bar with thirst-quenching beverages from Blue Moon Belgian White Ale and Cathead Vodka.

Check out a few snapshots from the beautifully decorated event. Design & decor compliments of InventivEnvironments & All Occasions Rentals.

NAR Luxury Home Symposium_Part 1

The National Association of Realtors reached out to Hamby Catering & Events to handle the event design and catering needs for the finale event to their Luxury & Second Home Symposium at the end of March 2012.

While the symposium was held at the Sanctuary on Kiawah Island, the finale event was held at two historic homes downtown Charleston. While guests toured the homes on South Battery and Water Street, Hamby served up eats and sips to tantalize their tastebuds.

Take a moment to look at this beautiful Water Street venue. Charleston provided a perfect early spring day for this event.

Valentine’s Day Recap…

The Hamby Catering & Events team was immersed in love this Valentine’s Day with themed events galore.

Hamby served as the catering partner for the “Love Under The Sea” Valentine’s Day dinner at the South Carolina Aquarium. Guests enjoyed a gourmet three-course meal, served at a romantic table for two, located in front of the Aquarium exhibits, such as the Great Ocean Tank or Carolina Seas or in front of large windows overlooking the historic Charleston harbor.

The Kiawah Island Garden Club held its monthly meeting at the Sandcastle, and the Hamby Team was invited to make a guest appearance to discuss Spring & Valentine’s Day tablescape design. The concept was to discuss ways to use items already in the household to create simple, creative tablescapes and themed tasty treats.
