Vanilla Orchid Catering SXSW 2019 Happy Hour Event Spotlight

Vanilla Orchid had the pleasure of catering a full-service event for one of our corporate partners. The event was held over two days with two special events. The first, a Happy Hour with Full-Bar and some delicious passed hors d’oeuvres, some of which are are highlighted below. The second day was a cocktail hour followed by a full plated meal. The plated event will be showcased in a 2nd blog!

No better way to kickoff a happy hour with VO’s famous Fried Chicken & Waffles with Habanero Maple Syrup. A Texas favorite combining sweet and savory all in one Texas-sized app!

The self-serve Agua Frescas bar was a huge hit. Blueberry thyme lemonade, strawberry basil lemonade, & prickly pear lemonade were the clients choices for this event and the guests couldn’t be happier!

Specialty Cocktails were a main focal point of the Happy Hour and needed to compliment the food perfectly. A self-serve Bloody Mary Bar was a perfect addition. Guests enjoyed putting toppings on their own drink after being safely served by our TABC Bartenders.

Texas Beers were a *must* for this Happy Hour and a great combination with the Texas-Themed apps.

Kevin Bacon Popcorn was by far the favorite of the 3 specialty popcorn flavors and a great way to give guests a sweet snack on their way out.
