For every little girl that likes pink, this party would be a huge hit. From custom handmade pink flower clips, pink ribbon dance, and small pink back packs for favors to a pink and white candy buffet with pink chocolate crowns on the cupcakes. These girls all had fun with activities like face painting and making bracelets, necklaces with pink and white beads.
To save on confusion, you can also indicate in your invitations if you would like your guests to dress a certain way. In this case, our guest of honor wanted her guest to be donned in pink, while she stood out in purple.
So, last night, for my birthday I was treated to dinner on the Mt. Roberts Tram at the Timberline Bar and Grill. And, can I just tell you? The grilled halibut. To die for! I mistakenly ordered the grilled salmon with a white wine glace. Though that was tasty, I ended up passing that around to my four year old daughter and husband. I stole bite after bite off my husbands plate of the grilled halibut with the strawberry salsa. It was almost like eating desert. I wish I had taken a photo to show you. This dish also had a striking presentation for any reception. The pink of the berry salsa on top the white halibut with the green of the asparagus I substituted. The orzo pasta that accompanied the meal was quite lovely, but, to keep the meal on the lighter side, next time, I would ask to substitute the pasta for a green salad and keep the entire dish looking light and fresh.
We ended up splitting the chocolate bomb cake and the bread pudding. I am not a huge of chocolate and the denseness of this chocolate cake didn't do it for me, though my daughter certainly enjoyed it. I, on the other-hand, thoroughly delighted in the signature bread pudding with vanilla sauce. I could have eaten the entire piece.
To all of you locals who have eaten at the tram in the past, I want to let you know the Mark Collier the new Food & Beverage/Special Events Manager is doing a wonderful job. I challenge you to giving the tram a try and letting me know what your thoughts are.
And for you brides. Can you just imagine how spectacular and special your reception would be on the top Mt. Roberts?
