What’s Up Wednesday: MGE’s Casino Night Holiday Party

What’s Up with Zest you ask?? This past week was a busy week with Holiday parties! We catered two company holiday parties, Earth Systems and MGE Underground– a local engineering company and a construction company. Both were such fabulous festive evenings filled with great decor, delicious food, and fun loving people. The MGE Undersgorund party took place at the Paso Robles fairgrounds and was “casino” themed. We loved this theme and had some fun brainstorming ideas on pinterest...

So with that we got to work and began to transform the barren warehouse….


Then we found these awesome poker chip chocolates from Oriental Trading Company

Between some candlelight, poker chips, bling bling with the centerpieces and table runners the decor all came together beautifully- we only wish we took more pictures!!

And that’s “what’s up” this wednesday!!
