Cheese Please!!!

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Everyday is a treat when you are a part of the team at Soirée Productions.

This week, we were especially lucky to have a private cheese tasting from the lovely Lindsay at Fromages s’il vous plait.

The fancy title means “cheese please” in French…but we were cheese pleased by her divine pairings and Lindsay’s serious knowledge of all things in the cheese world.

She has a true understanding of presentation and quality, and the experience is simply wonderful.

Lindsay is incredibly skilled at creating custom cheese pairings, and also uses her talent to make the increasingly popular “cake of cheese”.

As a personal fromager, she uses her wealth of experience in the catering, pastry and cooking world to create an incredibly unique experience for your most private of events and can even impress 600 of your closest friends.

She brought a most pleasant collection of

cheese pairings to our studio:

  • Drunken Goat (Spain, brine soaked, goat’s milk) with dried black mission figs.
  • Manchego (Spain, hard aged, sheep’s milk) with Spanish salami.
  • Barely Buzzed (Utah, aged cheddar, cow’s milk) with warm caramel.

  • Point Reyes Blue (California, aged blue, cow’s milk) with dark chocolate.

We are really excited to have met Lindsay and Fromages s’il vous plait!

We can’t wait to share her very special talent with our friends and clients.  Adding a personal cheese experience is something that absolutely increases the experience of your event.

Spring SPRINGS and color POPS!

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

For most of us in the wedding industry, March and April means…it’s time for vacation…

All year, we devote our time and energy to the love of love, and we use the beginning of Spring as an opportunity to love ourselves.

The Soirée Ladies have returned from vacation rejuvenated and ready to take on all the planning and design work awaiting us…

That being said, we are kicking off the season with one of our favorite examples of our design work.

Feast your eyes on these lovely photos by Sparkle Photography. They simply POP with color!

Flowers are by Artisan Bloom and of course, the photo shoot was styled by the one and only Kristin Spear.

A Day at the Spa Montage…

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Recently, the lucky ladies of Soirée had the opportunity to experience the Spa at the Montage Deer Valley.

As one of the most gorgeous and new resorts in Park City, we of course had some high expectations for our experience.
We were beyond excited to be able to spend a day at the Montage Spa…we don’t often get the time to set aside just for relaxation. Kristin is a spa connoisseur and I had never had a spa treatment. EVER.

Clearly it could only be fantastic.

After we assessed their spa menu, we each selected different treatments and made our appointments.

Kristin selected a customized facial-which includes deep cleansing, exfoliation, vaporization, facial, neck and shoulder massage, as well as hydrating hand massage in addition to a customized treatment based on specific needs.

I chose the Après Ease treatment-which is a mud treatment with a point specific hydro massage and aromatherapy hydration treatment.

The Montage has extensive amenities and we spent the entire day relaxing before and after our treatments. Personally, I think setting aside the entire day to relax made the experience even more valuable.

We were greeted and escorted to a lovely ladies lounge and a glass of champagne.  Our clothes lockers each had a customized bag with treats in them, and we enjoyed the lounge and relaxed while we waited for our treatments to begin.

I was really taken aback by the amazing treatment rooms. They transport you to another place-where you truly feel like you can relax and forget about the world and everything else in life. Our treatments were simply amazing and it felt like the longest and most relaxing 60 minutes ever.

Between the views, the quiet and the fabulous therapist, I never wanted to leave.

After our treatments, we were escorted back to the ladies lounge where we could shower and further relax in the jacuzzi, the sauna, the steam room and the pool.

The spa at the Montage is a true reflection of everything the Montage is, and it not only met but exceeded the expectations we had. We are excited to be able to return for another amazing and special day of ultimate relaxation at the Spa Montage Deer Valley.
