The trend of the missing spoon.


With the high of our bridal season about to start, we are often asked “Do I really need spoons?”

This question is typically with the need to save some money in the wedding budget. Brides will think about what they are serving and often times do not think they are necessary.

You may have not noticed it before now, but when you are out to eat the next time pay attention to the settings. Often time when the silverware is rolled there is not a spoon, even at some nice restaurants they have stopped setting them at the tables. This is in part for some cost saving measures, lack of spoon inventory, or problems rolling them into the napkins.

Think back at how many times you have been to a restaurant and went to reach for one and it was missing.

The missing spoon is not something new to me. Before my husband and I were married, I was setting the table at his parents’ house for brunch. Growing up we did not set all the silverware unless we needed it. This was before we had a dishwasher and with 6 people we avoided any extra hand washing we could. So I asked my future Mother-in-law if I should put out spoons. Her response was “Yes, just incase I want to stir my coffee.” The topic came up again last fall. We were in Boston talking about how many times we have people order dishware and just forks and knives from us. She talked about an article she had recently read and told us to start paying attention when we go out. So 2 nights later we were in the North End starting to enjoy appetizers and reached for the spoon to put marinara sauce on our plates and it was missing.

Think of your guest before you decide to leave the spoon out of your next event.

PS What is a Waterknot??
A Waterknot is used by climbers to tie two pieces of nylon webbing together. Its beauty lies in its strength and simplicity. It is practically fail-safe. The more force applied to pull it apart, the tighter it becomes.

Lauren and Brian were so much fun to work with. We had several roles in their wedding. Chair Rental, Sound equipment, Lights, and Day of Direction.

Lauren was planning the wedding from Washington DC and decided to keep it simple, fun and have a GREAT band! The food at Mt. Princeton was Lasagna, caesar salad and garlic bread. It was delicious!

Michelle Gapp with Kalamatapit Katering did several different flavor cakes for the cake table.

Flowers by Jane with Rancho Verde Flowers.

The Band was Raising Cane out of Denver

River Orchard Place {Poncha Springs Colorado}

A few months ago we met Emily and Max out at River Orchard Place to get the lay of the land there. Christopher had done a few small rental deliveries there and I had not been yet.

It was originally homestead in the 1800’s on 600 acres as hunting cabins. Some of their guest included Roy Rogers and Dwight Eisenhower.

River Orchard Place specialize in weddings and reunions, because of the gorgeous grounds. There are five cabins all with a mini refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. Perfect for your wedding party or family to stay at.

The grounds have a perfect spot to set up a 30 x 40 tent for an outdoor wedding. The area is surrounded by large cotton wood trees, and the South Arkansas River runs along the property. There is a small apple orchard on part of the property. If you are up for a small hike to the look out tower the views of the Collegiate Peaks are breath-taking.
