Bridal Shower Brunch with Harry Potter Theme

Event Description: LadyFingers catered a Bridal shower Brunch for a bride with a special theme – Harry Potter! The bride requested English-style foods, but also wanted at least two items featuring Brie cheese. LadyFingers created a Cheese and Fruit Display, finger food including Modern Tea Sandwiches, and a selection of delicious main course brunch items. The bridal shower brunch took place in one of the most charming venues in Pittsburgh – Point Breezeway – which as the name suggests, is located in the Point Breeze neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

“Thank you so much! Everything was perfect! The food complimented the theme without being over the top. Thank you for seeing my vision for the bridal shower brunch and working with me to make it come true. “ – Amanda H. (a catering reference is available from this Pittsburgh bride)
