Each year the Dallas Arboretum hosts an Open House that allows future and past brides of the Dallas Arboretum to walk the grounds, enabling the beautiful gardens to be seen. In addition, guests tour through the Camp House, DeGolyer, and Rosine Hall where vendors are situated mocking an actual event.

Gil’s Elegant Catering was invited back to the Open House, where we set up in Rosine Hall to showcase our food, beverages, and our hospitable staff. To start the night, guests were served passed canapes including: lump crab cakes, Belgian endive petals with danish blue cheese and caramelized Bosc pear chutney, and finally a small canape featuring smoked chicken pistachio mousse topped with dried apricots and spring onions.


As our featured items, we brought two stations: a Texas Grilled Elote  and a Traditional Carving station where we had a chef serve warm and perfectly tender slices of Herbed Crusted Sirloin.

While the musicians played, the lights gracefully changed colors, and flowers cascaded over the tables, our guests happily ate their foods with nothing but satisfaction on their faces.
