The winter season is a time of joy and comfort for many. The chilly breeze gives us a reason to cozy up under the glow of the fireplace and enjoy the company of close friends and relatives. Celebrated by many, the tradition of gift-giving fills the final moments of the year with an air of gratitude and appreciation for the ones we hold dear. 

Table & Thyme specializes in elevating every experience with our extraordinary catering menus and displays, and this holiday event was no exception. We designed a sophisticated spread and dining experience for Richard and Daniel’s wedding, featured in our Happily Ever After at Aldridge Gardens blog post. Our excitement to create another unforgettable experience for this charming couple and their closest friends is evident in the excellence of the evening.

Starting the festivities with some alluring appetizers. 

Many make for an unforgettable holiday party. And just like a party for any other season or occasion, mouthwatering appetizers are key ingredients for a noteworthy evening. This modern and chic holiday gathering featured several of Table & Thyme’s most beloved starters.

Topped with smoked hickory bacon jam and a sprinkle of zesty garden chives, Creole Deviled Eggs are a crowd-favorite at every event.

Also adding to the evening’s energetic buzz was a platter of mini-crab cakes topped with a spicy, creamy, housemade remoulade.

Finally, a plate of fresh beef carpaccio completed this glowing holiday party's triad of tasteful appetizers. Tangy capers and shaved parmesan topped slices of tender, savory cured beef on a bed of fresh arugula. The dish served as quite the conversation starter when paired with our artisanal creamy roasted garlic aioli.

A hearty dinner to celebrate the harvest of the season.  

For the main entree of the evening, guests shared laughs and heartwarming holiday cheer over plates of gourmet cuisine. 

Juicy and tender cuts of prime rib, encrusted in the earthly flavors of rosemary and thyme, were served atop creamy garlic parmesan risotto. A medley of winter vegetables elevated this holiday dinner party's comforting ambiance, consisting of honey-roasted carrots and rosemary asparagus spears.

A bit of dashing deliciousness on the side.

A simple spinach salad, made with a mixture of fresh baby spinach and arugula greens, featured flavorful garnishes including crispy fried shallots, slices of sweet honeycrisp apples, decadent candied pecans, crunch cornbread croutons, and made-from-scratch honey vinaigrette.

Of course, we could not help but include a basket of our honey and thyme cornbread muffins, cherished by many of our clients and guests over the years. We served these darling Southern-inspired dinner muffins with fluffy whipped butter that married perfectly with the sweet and savory notes of the prime rib and roasted vegetable entree.

The final touch to a heartwarming evening.

Much like appetizers, dessert plays a vital role in parties and gatherings, especially during the holiday season. Table & Thyme explored many possibilities and sweet treats to highlight this event's seasonal themes of abundant generosity and grace. Ultimately, we decided on a rich, velvety white chocolate bread pudding and the final element to this glistening holiday menu.
