Come hungry to the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle for 7th annual Get Hitched, Give Hope bridal auction and gala: The Black & White Ball! Not only is the beautiful Four Seasons ballroom the backbone of our gala, upon which we layer every element of luscious decor, but the Four Seasons Hotel themselves also delivers a spread of sweet and savory snacks so gorgeous it will dazzle your eyes and your taste buds. Each year has been more mouth-watering and eye-popping than the last! This year, expect three rounds of appetizers, a small sampling of which includes Mini Beef Wellington with a Red Win Reduction, Wine Poached Pears with goat cheese and pistachio crust, and Lobster Bisque Shooters. Yum! There will be antipasto stations with sliced meat, cheeses, veggies, bread, and more, and a cooking station with a seasonal soup and stew. Want to snack on comfort food? We’ve got you covered! There’s a potato bar with fries and tots galore, plus super-secret late-nite snacks for those who stay until the end! Thank you, Four Seasons!!
Thirsty? Sidle up to one of our five dazzling white bars for an adult beverage. Beer, wine, bubbly, or cocktail – whatever your fancy, we’ve got you covered! Choose your favorite from Hilliard’s Beer or have our bartenders pour you a glass of red or white vino from Smasne Cellars. Craving something even more festive? We’ll be mixing two signature cocktails with alcohol supplied by BevMo! – a White Cosmopolitan and a “High Fashioned,” (our play on the Old Fashioned). Ahhh! And all night, champagne will be flowing… grab a flute of Karma Vineyards Brut de Brut at the bar, from a passing tray, or from the skirt of our strolling champagne dress performer from Animate Objects Physical Theater.
After that, if you need something to sate your sweet tooth, sample one of our many generously donated dessert items! To tease your eyes and tempt your palate, from The Sweet Side, a beautiful multi-tiered display cake and pristine white display pedestals for treats and eats. Try a black & white cupcake from BAKED, an artisan truffle cake from me! me! Babycakes, a white & silver cake pop from Dianne’s Delights, or a salted caramel cheesecake Uber Dip from the Confectional. Gluten free? No problem! Stone Layne Baked Specialties is supplying delicious gluten free sugar cookies. Mmm!
