We Started The Holiday Season With a Jingle

For more than twenty years our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering friends, neighbors and business partners in Ivanhoe Village have helped the community kick off the holiday season with Jingle Eve.

Jingle Eve is the perfect way to get ready for the holiday season and if you missed it this year be sure to put it on your calendar for next November and check out the Ivanhoe Village website.

This fun community event combines holiday vendors, food trucks, local shops, beer and wine gardens and a premium wine walk that sold out very quickly.

The event incorporated amazing local artists, live music and even fabulous fireworks over Lake Ivanhoe.

Let’s not forget Santa Clause; the big guy made an appearance and helped ring in the season.

Our team decked out our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering showroom for the holidays.

We went a little nontraditional with our holiday look incorporating black, white and fresh seasonal greens. Our long rustic wooden table was draped with white lines and a bold black and white checked runner.

We added a little bling with tall silver mercury glass candlesticks topped with chunk candles, holiday greenery and white flowers. Gold flatware, elegant china with gold borders, mix and match glassware and black and white checked napkins all added a dynamic look.


Our display also included a unique square, three tiered cake dressed with white flowers, red berries and greenery with a touch of bling with the use of shimmering snowflakes.

Our John Michael Exquisite Wedding and Catering culinary team offered a yummy holiday display of flaming donuts with fun, festive toppings like crushed peppermint, crumbled bacon, and holiday sprinkles.


We also served warm wassail, a traditional holiday beverage made of warm mulled apple cider steeped with cinnamon sticks, cloves and sweetened with honey.

We really enjoyed kicking off the holiday with this amazing central Florida community event. We look forward to next year’s Jingle Eve and a fabulous evening with our Ivanhoe Village community.
