Bouquet De Meridian

On Thursday April 24th, Circle City Planners helped J.P. Parker Flowers and Indy Healing Arts throw an open house. We called it Bouquet De Meridian. Attendees strolled through J.P. Parker’s beautiful new flower shop enjoying the gorgeous floral arrangements. In the adjoining building guests admired all the amazing artwork in Indy Healing Arts.
Although it rained, the night was a huge success but we couldn’t have done it alone. Thomas Caterers of Distinction served summer strawberry rolls, chilled cantaloupe and raspberry soup shooters and pear mojitos. Richard’s Kitchen displayed country pate with all the traditional accompaniments on a huge gold-framed mirror and also served shrimp croquets with a sweet Chile tamarina sauce. Downstairs in both buildings Mallow Run had 4 different kinds of red and white wines for guests to taste. Because of the rain, Savannah’s Catering moved inside to J.P. Parker’s downstairs area where they served a New Orleans themed fare, blackened rib eye with a brown butter sauce and shrimp and crawfish ettouffe with corn muffins. And of course we didn’t forget the dessert! Shapiro’s deli from across the street brought over a wonderful array of delicious sweets.
Anthony Wilson from On 3 Photography captured the night with photos and A Classic Party Rental provided all the tables, chairs and linens and even came through with a last minute tent. ELS Audio Visual beautifully lighted the downstairs area of J.P. Parker. Kim King-Smith Events also helped with the planning of the open house.
Guests left party feeling full from on the wonderful food and drinks and most left with their own bouquets in hand. Pam Parker the owner of the floral shop was so happy at the end of the night she couldn’t stop thanking Kim and I for all our hard work and making the party a hit!
