#3 Getting ready for some vintage hors d'oeuvre in a vintage location

Wow. What a week, its been a crazy week with the relaunch of marmalade boutique in hertford. Upon being asked to do a few canapes i decided i needed to try and come up with something inventive and classy at the same time to offer to the special guests who were invited to the launch night. But also at the same time i knew work space would be at a minimum. So decided on some samples and designed some lovely hors d'oeuvres.

So the day before i made the crostini, bruschetta and red onion marmalade.
Wednesday 18th May was the opening night. And what an opening it was. Champagne was flowing and nibbles were being nibbled. Having to top the platters up every 3 minutes was not relaxing, but having an area at the back of the shop next to the alcohol made the night pass a lot quicker ;)
After 3 hours of handing out canapes and many positive compliments on the quality of the food, which to be honest is always nice to hear, the night rolled to a stop and the clean down began before heading over to the hotel opposite for a post party celebratory drink. Tell you something that bed this morning was a lovely soft thing to have my head hit down on after such a long but rewarding day.
Hopefully not to long before the next one.
