The Chopping Block
It's Wedding Season

It's the time of year for wedding bells. But before the trip down the aisle, celebrate the bride- or groom-to-be with a private cooking party. We've hosted unique bridal/couples showers, bachelor/ette parties, and even rehearsal dinners at The Chopping Block. 


During April or May, we're offering a special to anyone who books a Sunday bridal brunch in 2014. Book all of your wedding-related celebrations now!   


Here's what you get: 

  • $25 gift card to The Chopping Block for the bride- or groom-to-be.
  • One complimentary mimosa per guest.  

Just mention the promo code "Bridal Brunch" to your Event Coordinator to get these goodies.       


Please note that in order to quality for the special, your event must be booked in April or May but can be held anytime during 2014.

Wedding Planning from a Guy's Perspective
Grooms aren't often known for being active in the planning of their weddings. But as soon-to-be-married Event Coordinator Mike Lintal shares with us, just because you're a guy, doesn't mean you have to be a silent partner in the process.

Mike gives lots of great ideas for making the big day special, including creative ways to incorporate different types of food. You'll love his Bro Notes!    
Floral Design Blooms with New Trends

Just like in the food world, one of the most popular trends in floral design is an emphasis on seasonal and local products.

Bold colors and mixing classic flowers like daisies with unique foliage like hops are some of the trends to look for this year.  But some current trends will carry on, especially the "country" feel of Mason jars and wildflowers.

Designers share the latest in floral design, as well as what you should consider when picking your blooms.
