Bridal Shower at Hoosier Village

Here at Hoosier Village we recently catered a bridal shower. It was a garden theme and very exciting to execute. We started by utilizing an island counter top in our lounge and we turned it into a garden using outdoor carpet and small fence panels. Led by Sr. Executive Chef Camden Cox the team put together a great menu and concept. The menu is as follows:

Living Mache Salad (The party had to cut and make their own salad)
served with Cayenne Candied Peanuts
Pickled Cucumber and Red Onion
Feta Cheese and Dried Cranberries
Ham and Gruyere Pinwheels
Fruit Sticks
Mini Edible Planters - Micro Greens, Tiny Squash, Tiny Carrots and Tiny Radishes

Crispy Caprese Salad w/ Balsamic Reduction and Lemon Basil Micro Greens
Arancini w/ House Made Marinara
Charcuterie Boards
Smore's Parfait 

Chef Camden also did a watermelon Carving "L2  8.12.17"
Both of the people that are getting married have names that start with L so they call them L 2 as in L squared.

They were engaged by multiple vendors including kickbox fitness, free chair massages, financial security information, self-defense demonstrations, healthy popcorn alternative and many local companies providing informational brochures and coupons. While Morrison showcased delicious smoothies made with fresh herbs from the campus garden!  Attendees were not only decked out with a “swag bag” but enjoyed some baked goodies in support of a Staff member in need. Ears have been buzzing from all the excitement and positive conversation sparked from the event! Morrison is looking forward to hosting another!

Grand Master Reception at Masonic Pathways

At Masonic Pathways it is an annual tradition to host a reception for the new Grand Master.  It is an exciting event for residents, especially those whom are a Mason or an Eastern Star. One resident compared this event to meeting the President of the United States.  Over 100 residents and staff attended this event in the Grand Living Room enjoying items such as handmade truffles, crab stuffed mushrooms, and much more.

Thank you to our Executive Chef Ross McCurdy, assisted by our Production Manager Mike Whitman (pictured), and Hospitality Manager Jenelle Saavedra as they prepared and executed everything beautifully. 

It was our pleasure to serve the newest, and youngest in history, Grand Master.

The Fountains Kicks Off the "4:05"

Together with out marketing team, we have begun a new marketing event called the "4:05". Starting at 4:05 in the afternoon, invited care managers and case workers come and enjoy a relaxing evening at our location to unwind from a busy day. 
They start with a head, neck and shoulder massage, followed by a glass of wine and some appetizers that we prepared special for them! We prepared a fine cheese and fruit platter, tenderloin canapes, and tiramisu parfaits. The guests then enjoyed a tour by our marketing team. It was a great start to a new series, and we look forward to doing more in the near future!
