At Kathy G & Company, we are more than a wedding festivities caterer (though that is our specialty!). We also enjoy hosting luncheons, dinners, galas, parties, showers, openings and beyond! The Garden’s Café by Kathy G played host for the Greater Birmingham Women’s Republican Party luncheon. The café was pre-set with Water, Tea, an assortment of Market Fresh Breads and Sweet Cream Butter. The ladies enjoyed Artichoke Chicken Lasagna with a crisp salad of Mixed Greens and Romaine Lettuce with French Feta Cheese, Shaved Red Onion and Cherry Tomatoes. The salads were dressed with Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette. To wrap up the meal, the women savored Chocolate Mousse topped with Whipped Cream. Park Lane by Kathy G also has the pleasure of hosting Business Networking International each week for a networking event that includes both a meeting and luncheon. Though the time and location are standing, the menu by Kathy G & Company varies week to week. Some of the delicious lunch items that BNI has been served include an assortment of Deli Sandwiches, Baked Ziti with Spicy Tomato Sauce, Blackened Chicken over an Angel Hair Pasta Nest with Parmesan Alfredo Sauce and more. In addition to Business Networking International and the Greater Birmingham Women’s Republican Party, Kathy G & Company has happily entertained for PNC National Bank, Alabama Media Group, Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce, The University of Alabama schools of Business and Nursing, Girls Inc., Wells Fargo and many many more. The next time you are planning ANY type of event, think Kathy...

Laura & Chris, Park Lane Wedding Perfection

The gorgeous Laura and her dashing groom, Chris, were married at Briarwood Presbyterian Church before more than 300 friends and family members.  To make sure the playful couple’s big day was total perfection, Kathy G event coordinator Natalie Pilato-Andrews arranged for a truly over-the-top reception at Park Lane with one of the most impressive menus that our team created all year.  Chicken Kabob Skewers with Red Bell Peppers & Purple Onions was one of the event’s more popular Hors D’oeuvres with guests commenting time and time again how much they loved the Tzatziki dipping sauce. Spicy Boiled Shrimp with Cocktail & Tartar Sauce; Grilled Sliders with Cheddar, Dijon & Pickle; and Kathy G’s famous Mini BLT’s (pictured below) with Roma Tomato, Arugula, & Apple‑Smoked Bacon topped with Remoulade were also part of the couple’s fantastic feast. Also part of the gala were two of Kathy G’s most popular stations: a Mashed Potato Bar that offered up both Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes & Smashed New Potatoes served with Toppings of: Shredded Cheese, Sour Cream, Chives, Apple‑Smoked Bacon, Herb Butter, and Sauteed Mushrooms – All served in a fun & flirty Cosmo Glass. The second station was a sever-attended Carving Station providing Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Sauces of Horseradish Creme, Whole Grain Mustard, & Caramelized Onion Jam. Barb’s Cakes, once again, did a wonderful job with the sweets for the affair while the team at Flower Buds made Park Lane look spectacular in every way. The good times extended well into the night with 300+ guests letting their hair down while mingling, dancing, and partying. We’re so thankful that Laura and Chris chose Kathy G & Company to be a part of their big day.  They are such a fantastic couple and the entire Kathy G & Company team wishes them nothing but the best.  May they live happily ever after.  ...

Andres & Carrie’s Park Lane Wedding

On Saturday, November 12, the catering side of Kathy G and Company teamed up our floral and decor division, KG Designs, to create a dream-come-true wedding for Carrie, Andres, and their 150 guests. After the evening ceremony at St. Francis Xavier concluded, friends and family headed over to the Park Lane in English Village – which was decked out in linens of silver and stunning red florals – and DJ Coco got the party going immediately. The menu was a collection of several Kathy G favorites. A center buffet of Mini BLT’s, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard was just a small sample of what was enjoyed. The big hits included a server-attended “Taste of the South” station with Fresh Gulf Shrimp and White cheddar Grits and a “South of the Border” station with Soft Steak Tacos, Black Beans, Corn Salsa and a variety of taco toppings. All in all, it was a fabulous evening for a wonderful couple and we’re so proud to have been a part of it. Congratulations once again to Andres and Carrie.  May you live happily ever...
