Being fortunate enough to run a successful catering business in Colorado allows us to explore all types of venues-from the best in urban city locations to the beauty and romance of wide-open mountain spaces, we have seen it all. As we are diving into wedding season, we are taking a closer look at a few of our favorite venues. At the top of our list is a mountain retreat just 45 minutes away from Serendipity:

Meadow Creek Gazebo
  

Meadow Creek was established in 1912 in Pine, Colorado with a quaint cabin on beautiful mountainside land. (The same cabin is now incorporated as a part of the existing Caretaker's Quarters.) The accommodations originally served as basecamp for an Italian Prince and his Denver Bride to oversee the building of their Stone Lodge (known then as Casina Lontana) in the late 1920s where, upon completion, they would invite all their friends and family to retreat and relax from Denver's summer heat...

Spring Fun Facts 

Jar Yellow Flowers

  

Spring fever is not just a saying. Experts say the body's makeup changes due to different diets, hormone production and temperature.

 


The first spring flowers are typically daffodils, dandelions, lilies, tulips, iris and lilacs to name a few.


The reason there is more daylight during the spring is the earth's axis tilts toward the sun at this time of year.

 


 The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. Earth Day originated in the US but became recognized worldwide by 1990.

Asparagus
 

It takes three years to grow asparagus from seed to harvest. Once they get going, asparagus plants can be cropped each spring for 15 years or more, but
 
 the spears start out the diameter of pencil lead in year one. The mini-spears eventually grow into a ferny, waist-high canopy which feeds the underground rhizomes with energy synthesized from the sun. The plants gain strength in year two and by the following spring, some of the spears are reaching the full diameter of a pencil, signaling they're ready to harvest.


 
 
 

The saying, "No spring chicken" originated from New England before raising chickens had become the sophisticated industry it is today.  Chickens came from free-range farms with no incubators or warm hen houses, which meant baby chicks couldn't be hatched or raised in the winter. The prime price for chickens sold during the summer was for those born the previous spring.  Anything older and less succulent that was pawned off as part of the spring crop was quickly identified by shrewd shoppers as "no spring chicken," or, not as young as what was being presented. 

 

 

Strawberries aren't true berries, like blueberries or even grapes. Technically, a berry has its seeds on the inside. And, to be über technical, each seed on a strawberry is considered by botanists to be its own separate fruit.
