Let Me Cater To You: To Fang or Bang? That really was the question

One of my nearest & DEAREST friends, David Armstrong… actually one of the first friends I have ever made when I moved out to LA, many, many moons ago… hired me to cater his birthday party. David is a photographer & I was his first “muse”. We used to spend HOURS shooting at his home with the master of horror Clive Barker, sometimes the 3 of us would shoot until the wee hours in the morning, the brother would even call me over at midnight because he just had a super cool idea & I had to come over to “play”. One of my favorite shoots I dressed up like Marilyn Monroe & Courtney Cruz was Bettie Page & the way he shot it we looked JUST like them… HA a Black Marilyn Monroe… fierce! Speaking of black… here is a picture we took one late night & I was painted completely in black. He calls it his “favorite” picture & he gets to see me everyday… all 10+ feet of me… awwwwwwwwww! I will say it took weeks to get all that black off of my body it was e-ver-y-WHERE!
For the party this picture was placed in the window to greet the guests… I am a VERY lucky girl, I have some AMAZING friends. Speaking of amazing friends the theme of the party is based on David’s favorite show “True Blood” guests came to the party dressed as either Vampires (Fangs) or Vampire lovers/victims (fang bangers… brilliant). 300 guests were invited & if it weren’t for my sorry to be repetitive… amazing friends Mimi, Perri, Curtis & Vinda there’s no way I could have fed them all & have everything ready.
David’s daughter created this… word!
The bed in the master bedroom was replaced by these, I slept there the night before but chickened out last minute! I couldn’t bring myself to sleep in there, so the crew brought the bed we placed outdoors inside & I slept in the living room… in front of my massive picture, I know… terrible!
The Feast. My whole menu was red & carnivorous & I had to keep in mind that there was A LOT of alcohol at this party I wanted items that would soak up all that hooch & sober peeps up properly. We had a whole roasted pig, an oohy, gooey cheesy Italian Fondue in the crock pot, red beans & rice in the dining room to greet the guests as soon as they arrived.



These coffins were cool but this one….


was thee COOLEST!!! I rented a chocolate fountain added red chocolate & loaded the interior of the coffin with goodies to dip in the chocolate.. let’s just say this was to die for…. Man, I had corny lines ALL night especially the ones I chucked at Jesus, yes Jesus, Jesus of Nazareth was there too, remember the same Jesus from the prop 8 march I blogged about earlier click here … he kept offering to help in the kitchen, yes he was my Savior too, the Lord was my shepherd he guided all the dishes into the sink of holy water *snort* HA…oh man you should’ve heard half the crap I said… it was AWESOME!



Living art David wanted to show a glutton in baby Hewey garb watching porn & eating fried chicken all night… yeah I don’t question “art” or artistes.
Baby Brie Bruschetta
Caprese

Shrimp ceviche
Spicy Devil Shrimp with Thai Coconut Red Curry shots
Turkey Meatballs
Chicken & Pesto pizza
We made 8 pizzas from SCRATCH! Pepperoni, Spicy Arugula, Tomatoes, Garlic & Olives, Prosciutto & Spinach & plain cheese. I also made Pomagranate chicken wings since I had a whole batch of Pom BBQ sauce leftover from my last gig & tomato soup shots with mini grilled cheese on the rim, I’m catering another party on Sunday so I’ll take pics of those then. It was a HIT especially since it was getting quite nippy outside.
Thank the Lord for Mimi (yes I got to thank him personally remember he was there) I got a chance to take a shower & dress up like everyone else. She was on FIYAH in the kitchen banging all the dishes out!

Vampires take another victim


Sarah Palin… the biggest blood sucker of them all!


I walked in & busted Perri whipping this guy a new one… literally… SO FUNNY!
The incomparable burlesque goddess Miss Courtney Cruz

Christ Almighty!!! Perri gave the Lord a lapdance, it’s ok they’re both Jewish!
My chocolate fountain bit the dust! That machine was craptastic… I got bummed for a minute but got over it quickly, everything at the party was amazing!
The party boy Sir David Armstrong… blood sucker
VAMPIRES!!!!!!
The Lord keeps kosher!
