Real Events | 10th Anniversary Celebration | Fantasy of Flight

February 26, 2013 by Puff 'n Stuff Catering

Passionately Perfecting Life’s Celebrations is more than just our tagline- it’s our way of life. So when a Chicago based Destination Management Company, On The Scene, contacted us we were thrilled to lend our creative hands in producing an evening to remember! This wasn't just any celebration, this was the 10th anniversary celebration for a high-profile corporate client.

This special event was held at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, which was the perfect space for the unique, custom design elements that were needed to host such a magnificent event. With airplanes at the entrance and inside the venue, bone-chilling lighting, elegant table settings, lively entertainment, and creative cuisine the scene was set for a one-of-a-kind event that attendees would rave on and on about!

In reminiscing with the sweet photos from John Unrue Photography, you can tell it was a spectacular affair. However, one of the things you may not be able to see is the logistics, energy, and attention-to-detail that went into serving extravagantly plated dishes for 600 people within 15 minutes. One of the things that sets us apart from others is our team. We have an incredibly talented team of professionals who are up for any challenge; and rest assured that when we accept a challenge, we do it- and we do it very well. So take a peak below at the stunning images & video and then scroll some more to see the tantalizing menu:
