Wine Tasting with Hors d’ Oeuvres on Valentine’s Day
Forty-seven guests enjoyed our Valentine’s Day evening to taste the wonderful wines of Ancient Peaks, complimented by some of our foods. Guests mingled through 3 stations we positioned for the tasting. At one station we had 2 white wines, another had 3 single varietals and the third station had 2 blended red wines. Shana Cole, the District Manager for the distributor, told us all about the winery and the wines.

One of the joys of my work is delighting customers with creative elements that will stand out in their memories long after the party is over. Recently we hosted an event for a local tennis celebrity. She wanted a special cocktail for her guests. “Can you make a tennis ball garnish?”
Well, I’d never had that request before! I called my mixologist into the dining room and we got to work. The winning design included peach schnapps, triple sec, and vodka with a melon ball garnish. We called it a “Fuzzy Tennis Ball” and it was a hit.
We were thrilled to learn that our recent landscaping efforts have pleased not only our clients, but also the City of Williamsburg. In a city that takes so much pride in its gardens and green spaces, we feel tremendously honored to win Williamsburg’s prestigious Beautification Award.
Recently remodeled inside and out, our event venue is a versatile space that can handle a wide range of parties, such as an intimate dinner for 12 people or a larger gathering that begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and concludes with a seated dinner for 50.
Creative Cuisines’ new event venue is now open for business! Our remodeling project created a versatile space to handle a wide range of parties, such as an intimate dinner for 12 people or a larger gathering that begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and concludes with a seated dinner for 50.
