Recently, Celebration Gardens was host to a very special milestone birthday party.
Our Celebration Gardens facility manager, Michael Thomas, hosted his husband Rustin’s 40th birthday party for about sixty friends.
The beautiful up-lighting and market lighting allowed guests to fully appreciate all of our amazing gardens and spaces.
As part of the birthday festivities Johan Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering provided a Full Liquor Bar Service including beer, wine, liquor, setup and bartender.
As guests gathered, the staff served them butler passed hors d’oeuvres including:
Beef n Blues
Mini Corn Muffins with Honey Butter
Sun-dried Tomato and Feta Crisps
With drinks in hand and enjoying some lite bites, guests explored the gardens and had the opportunity to play a game of cornhole on the lighted lawn, tackle a tabletop Giant Jenga and pose for some fun photos in a Gify Booth.
A little later in the evening guests were seated at tables draped in electric blue linen and decorated with a simple clay vase filled with fresh cut flowers. Friends dined on a buffet reception that included:
Panko and Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Cheese Tortellini Alfredo Florentine
Red Pepper and Parmesan Risotto
Chef Carved Beef Brisket
with Caramelized Onions, Pomerey Mustard, Sweet BBQ and Spicy BBQ Sauces
Rosemary Garlic, Honey Wheat and Plain Yeast Rolls with Piped Butter
Throughout the evening guests danced, mingled, played games and got a little silly in the Gify Booth before Rustin cut his fun music themed birthday cake.
To wrap up the festivities guests also enjoyed some late-night snacks.
They were offered fresh cut potato wedges, fried to order and served with catsup, sea salt grinders and malt vinegar.
For those who wanted something sweet, guests were able to make their own S’mores, including jumbo marshmallows, chocolate squares and graham crackers.
Guests had an amazing time celebrating with Rustin and enjoying the beautiful Orlando spring weather.
Happy Birthday Rustin!
