It is true that tourism slows down in New Orleans in the summer but that does not mean that the party stops! Here at the Sully Mansion Bed and Breakfast we have been busy renovating our backyard into a beautiful tropical courtyard just perfect for the romantic wedding, unique party or fun gathering. We have also been perfecting our culinary skills and are hosting our first ever catered baby shower luncheon next week. There are eight ladies and we worked out the menu offering the freshest ingredients oi the summer and factoring in the gluten intolerance of two of the guest. While we make breakfast from scratch every morning, designing a private luncheon is a new and exciting endeavor for us. We are starting with Cheddar and Dill scones, followed by Creole Tomatoes Gazpacho, then a Walnut and Grape Chicken Salad served inside Avocados finished by a Cocoa Tiramiso with Strawberries. Mimosas all around (save for the pregnant guest) Sounds fabulous doesn’t it? We will take lots of photos and keep you posted.
