Houston Grand Opera

CarteWheels catered an intimate dinner party to friends of the Houston Grand Opera in the Cherry Springs Home of Harlan & Dian Stai. Guests were entertained before dinner with a concert given by talented voice students.Our Mini Tacos filled with Mexican Chicken Salad were a big hit as usual.
Always a favorite, Peppered Tuna Skewers with Pickled Ginger and Wasabi Aioli

David Ross and Brent Waldoch arranged the spacious
dining room with small tables draped in rich fall hues.

An assortment of petite desserts and coffee were set on their fabulous "well" table. This table is actually the original water well for the vintage German Farm House which the Stais added on to. They opted to build the addition around the old well and it is now a table. There is a light which allows you to see all the way down. Very Cool!

I didn't get any photos of the dinner plates, but here is the menu.

When it comes to an event, food is going to be one of the big things that you will have to deal with. That will generally mean you will be dealing with a caterer.
