    Tuscan Summer. You can feel the heat on the back of your neck, smell the olive trees and hear the not-so-distant Mediterranean. In summer in Italy, it seems it's almost always dusk. The food is always delicious and copious. You are always at your leisure.

    That's the feeling we wanted to bring to this backyard concert event at our client's home. Comfort, leisure, decadence and ease, but with the simple twist of a hot Italian vacation in Tuscany.

    At our Tuscan Summer Backyard Concert event, guests loved the Fresh Mozzarella Pulling Station and the Artisan Pizza Station which included a Margherita Pizza with fresh buffalo mozzarella & pesto and our Spinach & Artichoke Pizza with feta cheese, fire roasted artichokes and garlic with wilted baby spinach.

    Of course we cannot pass up the opportunity to have our guests served a specialty drink from our traveling bar cart! To round out our Tuscan Summer wines, liquor and beers, we served a delicious Raspeberry Limoncello Prosecco with fresh raspberries to float.

    And of course, no event is complete without the hard work of our favorite event designers and vendors.

They made the Tuscan Summer come to life.
