REI Systems Summer Picnic at Fun Company Picnics at Dulles Golf Center in Sterling, VA

summer bbq picnic at fun company picnics at dulles golf center in sterling vaWow!  What a great day for a summer party!  The theme for the party was a Hawaiian Luau, so we used bright lime, blue, hot pink, and orange linens for the buffet table that matched perfect with the beautiful flower arrangement designed  by Janet Flowers.  Janet used tropical flowers , palm tree, and banana leaves.  So gorgeous.  Loved it!

It was a warm and beautiful day – the  guests began to arrive right on time at noon and we eventually catered for 220 adults and 30 kids – 70 people more than we expected, but that’s ok – we pulled it off :-)  We had plenty of food and everybody had a great time.  Many of the REI staff told us it was the best summer party they had ever had … great!

Of course, you can’t have a summer party without hot dogs and burgers – so we had our crew there with our portable grills cooking everything at the picnic site.  Everything was so yummy – is there anything better then grilled corn on the cob?  I don’t think so :-)

We also had a mix of Indian and vegetarian foods – check out the Indian dishes we provided (below) prepared by chef Marcel Bernard – everyone loved it – and so did I since I’m a very big fan of International cuisine!

Vegetable Samosas

A wonderful selection of highly spiced vegetables in a pastry including potatoesand peas

Served with corriander chutney sauce

Prawn Kabobs

King Prawn (jumbo shrimp), courgette(zucchini) , Cherry tomatoes, baby corn cobs in skewers

Light and refreshing with a delicate tang of coriander and lemon juice


Sweet and Sour Vegetables with Tofu Kabobs

Tomato & Spinach Pulao

A tasty and nourishing dish prepared with basmati rice, onions, tomatoes, carrots and spinach

I can’t forget to mention how great it was to work with Carolyn Howell, the vice president & managing partner of Fun Company Picnics and her entire staff at Dulles Golf Center.  They’re on top of every detail and made our job very easy.

We’re very impressed with the variety of activities, such as volleyball, basketball, a baseball pitching cage, putt putt golf, moon bounce, a DJ, face painting, caricatures, and of course, a tug of war!  We definitively will recommend their space to our clients. See pics below:
