The Call of the Wild....

We're surrounded by sights and sounds of nature here at  
The Lalumondiere but perhaps my favorite is the honking of our resident Canadian geese in the morning as they make their rounds on the river below my window.


We expect to see little baby geese trailing behind soon.  Then there will be a cacophany of honks as momma attempts to keep them in line.

The new resident in our garden....

A 'Tasmanian Tiger' has found its way into the gardens here at The Lalumondiere.  This Euphorbia is as unique as the surroundings in which it now resides.  The leaves are white with a dark green center.  In spring the bracts emerge white and yellow with a bow tie-shaped green blotch in the center. Just another spot of beauty in the midst of all this outdoor wonder.

And the caterer is...........


    When we use words like 'eclectic' and 'unique' to describe The Lalumondiere as an event venue we are serious.   Eleanor Krautmann and Matt Tifenbrun (see our post dated 2/19/2010) have chosen Kirk Warner of Kirk's Traveling Kitchen to prepare the culinary feast for their September 25th, 2010 wedding celebration with us.  And a great choice it is!  Kirks' creativity has been enjoyed by many St. Louis diners in the past when he ran the kitchen of both 'King Louie's' and 'Savor' restaurants here.


   THis is the fun part.  Kirk has been known for his use of local purveyors for his sumptuous dishes and sauces.  Eleanor's family owns and operates "Bellew's Creek Farm", specializing in truly organic produce and Matt raises livestock and poultry.  Get the picture?  Guests will dine on delicacies not found on your average catering menu.  What a very personal touch to add to an event!  Creative, unique and eclectic.  We can hardly wait for dinner to be served!

Catching up.....

  This glorious early spring weather has kept us busy here at The Lalumondiere.  It has been amazing to watch perennials pop out in the gardens on one day, only to be full grown within a week!  Ah, springtime in St. Louis.
  We had a visit yesterday from Carolyn Burke of Wedding Liaison, a resource service based here in St. Louis.  Carolyn provides a wealth of information for the planning of a wide range of events from weddings, corporate meetings, trade shows, photo shoots, picnics or parties plus much, much more in St. Louis and Metro East Illinois.  
  Carolyn Burke not only provides consulting services, she is a wedding officiant resource for all faiths... Non-Denominational, Secular, Commitment, Renewal of Vows
Catholic     Protestant     Jewish     Hindu     Persian     Buddhist.  We are often asked for recommendations for a celebrant to perform weddings and we gladly include her name here.   
  It was our pleasure to meet Carolyn and look forward to working with her.
