The Winthrop Barn Theatre is a departure from the average barn, and it was the ideal venue for Amanda and Thomas’ romantic spring wedding! Nestled in the town of Brandon, just outside of Tampa, the Winthrop Barn Theatre is spacious and absolutely charming.
Today, we're inviting you behind the scenes at the recent VIP Grand Opening of The Container Store in Orlando near the Mall at Millenia!

Say hello to the newest addition to the Puff 'n Stuff Catering family, the Cross Creek Ranch in Tampa! This charming venue sits on ten beautifully landscaped acres with a winding stream, charming wooden bridge, and breathtaking ancient oak trees. This rustic, yet elegant venue really has so much to offer. Not only is it gorgeous in every way, it also has several unique amenities and resources including a phenomenal team of professionals.
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.
We're so proud to have participated in the 4th annual I Do Downtown Bridal Crawl. One of the things we cherish most about this event is that it isn't your usual wedding show where you are bombarded by vendors and booths filled with sheets & diagrams. Instead you get the opportunity to visit eight of Downtown Orlando's well-established venues in a wedding showcase that includes delicious catering, exotic honeymoon destinations, photographers & videographers, reliable transportation, glorious flowers, dramatic music, and anything else you could dream up for your wedding! As the name suggests, you start at one venue and work your way around downtown; whether it be by foot or by the Redi Pedi Cab company who so generously sponsored their services for the day.
The first thing that comes to mind with Karina + VJ is WOW! They're a match made in heaven who knew how to wed in style! Their color scheme of eggplant and burnt orange popped so perfectly at The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg- it really was a stunning affair. They met with their personal Puff 'n Stuff Catering Special Event Planner, Lauren Balden, to handcraft a menu that would showcase their style and personality; and boy did they knock it out of the park! With delicious items such as mini waffles topped with hazelnut butter and pecan crusted chicken drizzled with old fashion syrup to Jumbo Prawns stuffed with fresh lump crab meat & finished with lime buerre blanc guests were raving all night long. Scroll below to see the rest of their mouthwatering menu and photos from the evening of Amore Dulce.
We love to have a good time, especially when its for a great cause! We had the honor of participating in the March of Dimes Signature Chef Event held at the Ballroom at Church Street. Our very own Chef Paul Lorrain was the Host Chef of the night and created the ultimate dining experience of fine cuisine and beverage pairings along with other top local chefs. Guests had a phenomenal time as they ate and drank their way around the ballroom while enjoying various live entrainment. Each attendee was given a ticket, and after they tasted their favorite plate they dropped their ticket in the appropriate bowl to determine the Fresh Point Flavor Award Winner of the evening. The unique assortment of silent auction items was a huge hit, and of course how can you not love it when it's for such a fabulous cause! The night ended sweetly with a white chocolate mouse cornucopias accompanied with fresh fruits of the season and the announcement of the Fresh Point Flavor Winner.... and the award went to our very own Chef Paul Lorrain!
Oh how we just love everything about Samantha + Michael's special day! Not only were they a match made in heaven, but they also chose an incredible venue, The Ballroom at Church Street, had a spectacular menu packed with delicious items, and every last detail was tended to exquisitely- all while in the loving company of their closest friends and family. We're so honored to have been part of such a spectacular day. Their guests were delighted with the custom menu Samantha + Michael designed with their Puff 'n Stuff Catering Special Event Planner, Sandy George. With tasty items like butler passed Baked Stuffed Mushroom Caps filled with Crab Mornay to the Chef Attended Churrascaria Station there was plenty of eating, drinking, and being merry to be found!
