Emerald City Cocktails at The Big Fake Wedding Seattle
Here's our setup at The Big Fake Wedding event at The Metropolist in Seattle, WA. The color theme of the event was acrylic, so owner Neil Ratliff arranged flowering orchids alongside colored napkins to match his batch of pink berry sangria. He also arranged a cocktail table with Seahawks-inspired colors: neon green and blue beverage napkins with a green & blue orchid AND Seahawks passionfruit Jello Shots! (Needless to say, Neil was a big hit at the show).
We love to match our services to our clients' events! Color themes, custom cocktails, holiday parties - you name it, we can make it special! Contact us today with your unique ideas and let's get the party started!
Color Themed Jello Shots!
Owner Neil Ratliff whipped up a batch of Seattle Seahawks-inspired passionfruit jello shots for The Big Fake Wedding in Seattle, WA. Just like the 'Hawks defense, they were a HUGE hit!
