This year we wanted to be super ahead of the game, so we decided to have our holiday menus curated and designed by the mid-summer, crazy season. Just in time for Christmas in July, perhaps?…

Our team worked for weeks with Executive Chef Chris to brainstorm, curate, prep – and yes, taste! – some of our newest holiday menu creations. Just like with any of our menu design processes, we spent over five weeks reflecting on the past year’s best selections, experimented with new suggestions, and narrowed down our options as a team to the best, most well-rounded and creative holiday offerings from the Rocky Mountain region.

That is one of the best part of all of our jobs at Occasions– being able to have a say in new concepts and food that may have a lasting impact within the Denver events scene for both our clients, and our whole team.

And one of our marketing manager’s favorite parts about her job, specifically? Planning and styling photoshoots from there.

Krista worked with the Occasions team and some of our top vendor partners to put together our 2017 holiday photoshoot with Boulder-based photographer and friend, Anastasia Rae.

We hope you enjoy some of our favorite highlight shots below, all thanks to the additional collaboration of the following peeps:
