Palate New Orleans & A Little R&R

Palate New Orleans has recently been featured in the 2015 publication of Race & Religious’ Event Brochure! Race & Religious is a gorgeous New Orleans venue that features eclectic decor with a European feel. We’ve had a long time relationship with this stunning venue and we are so pleased each and every time that we have the opportunity to work in the space! In our opinion, it is the perfect backdrop for unique florals and inventive cuisine.

Check out photos of the venue and our half page advertisement in the brochure (featured on page six.)

Viva Las Vegas! Debutante Party

Palate New Orleans was thrilled to be a part of the Las Vegas themed debutante party of Caroline Drennan and Sage Laborde. Bang Bang Lobster and Rack of Lamb was served to the VIP guests pre-party. We started off the beginning of the night with passed Rough Cut Tuna Nachos and Chilean Seabass. However, our favorite part of the night may have been our Seafood & Steak Savory Martini Bar. Taking a note from the City of Lights, our “bartenders” put on a show while shaking up a delicious mix of ingredients, poured in a martini glass which was rimmed with spice and herbs and garnished with a pickled okra or pepper. Among the other items served were Pork Tenderloin au Provence with Mushroom Risotto and New Orleans Steak Frite with Truffle Brabant Potatoes. The curtain call of the night was our Sirloin Burger and Grilled Pimento Cheese.

Palate New Orleans’ performance as well as the other show-stopping details of the night were published on Nola.com. Be sure to check-out photographs and the raving review!

Laura Hooper Calligraphy Workshop

Have you ever been to a wedding where a menu or welcome sign catches your eye? And you think, what a lovely detail!

Well, Laura Hooper Calligraphy specializes in the lovely details and we couldn’t agree more with that sentiment. So, when Elyse Skansi of Tying The Knot Wedding Coordination reached out to us about getting involved in Laura’s upcoming workshop in New Orleans, we were thrilled!



Laura creates gorgeous calligraphy- wedding invitations, place cards, hand drawn maps, and signage of all types.

Greer Gattuso of Greer G Photography hosted the event at her beautiful studio near downtown New Orleans. The white walls and bright lighting were the perfect clean backdrop to all of the event’s unique facets.


Palate New Orleans provided some small bites, refreshments, and decorated the table with local foliage. Below are a few of our photos from the workshop. But, we’re looking forward to seeing the photos Greer will be posting in the near future!

After months of talking layout, design, and content, we are so incredibly pleased to announce the launch of Palate New Orleans’ new website!

Getting Married: Ashley + John

We could not wait to share these gorgeous photos from Ashley + John’s elegant winter wedding! We were so happy with the way the florals and decor turned out—pretty and ethereal just like the bride! And, of course, we always love working in the stunning Patrick F. Taylor Library at the  Ogden Museum of Southern Art. The space has some fantastic architecture. Complete with high ceilings, exposed wooden beams, and a fabulous rotunda boasting stunning carvings. We’ve even heard the rotunda was said to be the inspiration behind one of Mignon Faget’s jewelry collections. Which is completely believable considering there is inspiration everywhere!

Ashley + John are a creative couple with fantastic taste. Their vision was a sophisticated take on the loose and airy look. We kept the florals natural and unbound looking while glitz-ing up the centerpieces with our mercury glass vases and candle holders. We suggested branches laced with lights and bound with clean white burlap. We knew we were on the right track when the couples save-the-date included neutral tone branches depicting a winter scene. We can’t wait to share the rest of the wedding details with you so continue checking the blog for additional photos!
