Colby and Kristen Atkins Appreciation Party

When Elevate Church contacted me and asked me if I was interested in catering their special event I was immediately excited…and said yes! What an incredible event this was! I had the opportunity to serve Colby and Kristen Atkins in their home over the course of 3 days. This was such an amazing experience because I heard the passion and vision they were casting for their future endeavors. These two people have such a passion for excellence and most importantly a passion for people and the Erie Community!

I arrived to their home early to setup everything including tables, linens, grilling stations, and beverage stations. I then placed everything and gave the event “Baby Blue’s final touch” to make this evening even more special for their guests.

Colby and Kristen invited their friends and supporters over for an appreciation dinner to thank them for their time and support devoted to Elevate Church. We served an abundance of food including Gourmet Cheese selections, Fresh butlered Hors d’ oeuvres, and assorted beverages to their guests.

Once all of the guests arrived, we soon ventured into our freshly prepared hors d’ oeuvres! Each Guest enjoyed their choice of hors d’ oeuvres and at their leisure enjoyed the Organic Cheese Station. This was their personally designed menu:

Hors d’ oeuvres

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp Stuffed with Basil and Garlic

Organic Chicken Skewers with Fresh Vegetables & Mango Chutney

Specialty Dips

Creamy Gruyere and White Cheddar Dip

Organic Cheese Station

Organic Sharp Cheddar, Gorgonzola, and Brie


Chocolate Creme Brule

Our team did an amazing job, across the board, in making this event a success! Rich Ferraro and Adrienne Myers were our wait staff and made sure that everyone was taken care of throughout the event while Jake Ritenour prepared fresh Hors d’ oeuvres. It was truly an honor to serve Colby and Kristen and their guests! I can’t wait to serve them again! A special thank you to Rich Ferraro, Adrienne Myers, Dave Perkins, and Colby and Kristen Atkins!
