Last night I had the privilege and pleasure of catering the Newnan High School Swim Team's Banquet. I can't even begin to say how enjoyable the evening was. These kiddos are without a doubt the most polite and well mannered young men and women that I have been around in quite some time. You know, most kiddos these days are just a little different than when I grew up. Being around these kiddo's parent's, I understood why these kiddo's were the way they are. The parent's are amazing.
This is my posse, Firefighter friend, Miss Culinary Arts, my Prince, Reggie Girl and Cousin Sis. Wow!! You could never find better friends and you could certainly never find better help. I could have never pulled it off without any one of them. The only one not present was the other gigi. She hung out with me all day yesterday and I just couldn't have gotten everything done without her help either.
Our dessert table. Hey, Who doesn't like a little dessert? I made all of that pudding from scratch and boy was it yummo.
This is our buffet line. We only used the finest china because we wanted their banquet to be special for them. My good friend Cuz Cash's son (the one who called me his "illegitimate aunt", lol) is a swimmer on this swim team and I didn't want to disappoint either one of them. I already knew a couple of the other kiddos as well and they are all great young people.
This is the swim team's cake. I would take credit for this cake but I can't. One of the swimmers Mom's brought this fantastic cake. Isn't it gorgeous?
This is a quilt that was made for the swim team coach. All the swimmers made a square and then the quilt was put together. This quilt was simply stunning. I was admiring it with the swim team coach and she was touched and marveled that they would give her such a special memory to keep forever. I don't know whether it had sunk into her quite yet that these parent's thought that she was a pretty amazing lady and a terrific coach. Moment's like this are priceless.
It was such an honor to be a part of such a special evening. We all had a great time whether we were working, watching, listening and even cleaning up afterwards. I thank the Mom's of the swim team for letting my cater their event and I hope to do so again. It was a little work, but oh so worth it...........
