More than 500 guests were wined and dined
at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History event
to honor Jane Goodall and her chimpanzees.

Themed Events - Bungle in the Jungle

Buffets and bars were draped in hundreds of yards of hand made “leaf” linen to give the tropical jungle feel.

Guests feasting at the buffet heard the wild animal sounds of the rain forest and the occasional thunderstorm along with the visual of lightning through
the huge tropical trees and plants complete with tropical birds in the center of the buffet. A low roll of fog rose across the buffet table enhancing the effect.

Traditional African food was prepared and served on Banana leaves and bamboo. African carved animal bowls were filled with such delectables as mango salsa, red pepper sauce and Peanut sauce. Huge 48” copper trays were filled with shrimp and chicken skewers. The dessert buffet was over the top with three 6 ft. pineapple trees skewered with fruit. Bamboo trays and giant banana leaves filled with goodies all to dip in the gorgeous chocolate fountains.

This event was written about in Black Tie Cleveland and featured in the About Town column in The Plain Dealer.

Themed Events - Halloween

The themed event has included corpse in caskets full of chocolate drizzled popcorn, 8‘ grim reapers on the buffet accompanied with strobe lights,
fog and sound effects.

Witch buffet surrounded by vats of apples with all kinds of sweet goodies to munch on or the Cemetery buffet complete with Creepy tree, head stones,
black cats, spiders, snakes, webs and black ravens. Gourds and pumpkins full of delectable skewered treats and sauces. The food is always new,
creative and plentiful. Devrings always has a great selection of vegetarian dishes that is enjoyed by everyone.

On a beautiful Saturday evening in May, 2007,
Four hundred elegantly dressed well behaved
young people arrived at the Western Reserve Historical Society Crawford Auto Museum.

Themed Events - Prom: James Bond 007

The theme for the Shaker Hts. High School Class of 2007 was “Casino Royale 007.”

The main buffet was a 22 ft. by 7 ft. gaming table draped in black and covered in Las Vegas gaming table overlays.
Featured of course were the elegant and scrumptious finger foods which were enjoyed by the group. Sauces were served from
oversized martini glasses. Money trays contained coin wrappers that were filled with edible candies and mints were scattered all about
the buffet. Hot foods were served in glistening Gold Lion Legged rolltop chafers. Huge 36’ playing cards and poker chips
were scattered among the dining tables.

Staff in the “Casino” were dressed as dealers complete with visors, arm bands and money aprons carrying neon trays.
Dessert included a endless free flowing chocolate fountain and tall trees skewered with fruit for dipping. The bar featured a 5 ft. “007”
light ice sculpture where sparkling fruity drinks in sugar rimmed glasses were served. Dancing went on all night in the Rotunda. Staff
on the main floor were dressed in full black tuxedos with white gloves.

The event was a huge success and Devring’s were invited back to cater the 2008 “a red carpet affair” (pictures to come).
We are looking forward to Prom 2009 (theme not yet decided).
