McBaile Exclusive were very proud to be a part of the Wildscreen festival that descended upon Bristol in October. The wildlife and environmental film festival was a huge success, highlighting conservation issues and holding workshops on wildlife filmmaking. Principal sponsors, the Discovery Channel, held a screening at Colston Hall one evening and as recommended caterers McBaile were called upon to supply some tempting canapés.
The film focused on the North American landscape and its wildlife, so to remain in keeping with the American theme the menu included mini pumpkin pies topped with whipped cream, blueberry curd and marscapone tartlets, micro red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and last but most definitely not least, gingerbread and vanillia cream Whoopee pies. Displayed on slate platters, beds of woodland moss and rustic wooden boards the canapés were being devoured in record time, but as always there was plenty to go around and the drinks were flowing.
McBaile also provided an event management service, working with local suppliers to bring the wilderness to Colston Hall in the form of earthy tone linen and furniture, with tundra inspired flower arrangements. The venue looked brilliant inside and out, accentuated by the vivid green façade projected onto the exterior and guests mingled comfortably whilst discussing the night’s entertainment. With more events at Colston Hall in the New Year, McBaile Exclusive Catering Company are looking forward to continuing a successful relationship.
“It was an absolute pleasure working with you and among all the other challenges we had, your team made the reception seamless and wonderful. The small bites you catered were delicious and your staff attentive and professional. You guys did an awesome job and I would certainly use you for anything we have in the Bristol area again! I hope you have a great fall and I look forward to working with you in the near future.” - Andrew Shortell, Director, Discovery Communications
