Bride and groom take their seat at the center of the table; the wedding party sits beside them. An ethereal glow emanates from the gauzy curtains behind their seats: blue, purple, green. Silky white roses blanket the table and chairs, and yellow petals circling purple-bottomed vases and green candles add a pop of color. The setting may sound like a fairytale, but it's actually a head table created by the event decorators at Alluring Occasions.
Whether they're creating a one-of-a-kind backdrop for a bride and groom, table settings for a sweet sixteen, or decor for another special event, each of their creations is touched with whimsy. Of course, how much whimsy all depends on your personal preferences. The decorators cater to each party host or special guest when they design a bash, so settings range from colorful and opulent to chic and understated.

Weddings are a specialty, and numerous party packages add whimsical extras to the act of memorializing events. The images partygoers create can be enhanced with add-ons, including prop and costume rental, or printing options, including custom designs and bound photo albums.
With a 65-foot long buffet and a 38-year history, The Drying Shed is much more than a regular steak house. Succulent surf-and-turf dishes form the buffet spread at lunch and dinner, and on weekends, the expanse highlights prime rib and lobster tail or turns into a brunch and champagne affair. ? la carte specialties from the regular dinner menu include filet mignon, Alaskan halibut steak, and imported Danish baby back ribs.
The Drying Shed accommodates parties big and small with its expansive facilities and tireless kitchen staff. Guests can pop in for a family meal or stage an event such as a wedding reception, baptisms, showers, birthdays, and other parties up to 400 guests.

The windows of the tiny, tucked-away Lucy?s Tamale Factory remain perpetually fogged. Inside, Lucy and her staff of cooks dart from stovetop to stovetop, steaming massive pots of traditional Mexican tamales?fluffy, authentic cornmeal street fare filled with chicken, pork, or jalape?o. The cooks mix masa and shred meats to craft the treats, winners of numerous awards across the U.S., which emulate the tamales Lucy?s family has made for generations in Durango, Mexico. Their hard work has paid off; their classic handheld delights with no preservatives have earned accolades from festivals and fares across the US. Patrons bustle in and out of their shop to order the tamales individually or by the dozen for special events such as large parties or events where people are required to construct their own hats out of cornhusks.
