De~Light Your Senses-A Dining Experience Unlike Any Other

When creatives collaborate, dreams come true! Back in the fall of 2016, we had a light bulb moment while speaking with our catering partner Attitude on Food. Attitude on Food had always wanted to host an epic event in our historic ballroom. We toyed around with a variety of ideas, but nothing ever seemed quite right. It wasn’t until Nathan Newhouse and Melissa Tibben started brainstorming with their creative staff and culinary team that an idea slowly became a spark that would eventually light a flame within each of us. This flame became our burning passion; our dreams come to realization.

We wanted this event to revival something that you could only witness in Las Vegas or New York. If we were going to commit to something, it had to be epic. If guests didn’t leave with their minds blown and their jaws hanging on the floor, it wasn’t done right.

After much discussion, Attitude on Food and the Scoular Ballroom decided we needed to bring in a team of creative minds; people whose execution would match our vision. In time, a team was assembled and after months and months of planning, our collective vision became an amazing night full of culinary surprises and delightful entertainment.

Sixty guests enjoyed a five course meal prepared by Attitude on Food that featured edible flowers and dirt, lighting clams on fire, and a deconstructed fruit cake (just to name a few). Each course was paired with a craft cocktail also prepared by Attitude on Food. The entertainment for the evening included an energetic band, DJ, tap dancers, baton twirlers and so much more that was provided by Omaha Musicians Live and Image Entertainment.

Autumn Wedding Season

Fall is a beautiful time to host a wedding! The air is crisp, the leaves are changing into hues of gold, red, and burnt orange, and autumn whimsy can finally begin to inspire your decor.

Over the weekend, we hosted a gorgeous wedding reception that featured touches of fall in the most romantic way!

Kudos goes out to Tracey Fricke of Occasion Designed, Attitude on Food, Flowers for Special Occasions, and Jones Bros Cupcakes for the cake and cupcakes. Rentals provided by United Rent-All. Blog photos by Tracey Fricke of Occasion Designed.

kicking it off right.

It’s crazy to think how quickly winter passed us by, although we admit, it was a little slow going at times… However, we couldn’t be more excited to put winter behind us and start our favorite time of the year, wedding season! Full of unique tablescapes, surprising themes, love, laughter, and all around fun, 2016 is sure to be one for the books! Be sure to keep up with all the beautiful images from this year’s weddings here on the blog. We promise not to disappoint.

We kicked this season off right with an ABSOLUTELY stunning display from Florals Etcetera and Lorraine Arthur Cakes. Let’s all just take a moment to pick our jaws up off the ground and bring our thoughts back from the English Rose Garden we’ve been transported to. Seriously though, this collaboration produced a super romantic, super whimsical wedding reception that leaves the eye wanting more. Thank goodness these amazing designers grace the Scoular Ballroom with their presence and creativity often, otherwise we might just have to start making our way around Omaha to see more of the magic.
