Golden Gardens Park was originally developed in 1907 by Harry W. Treat and was used as an attraction to encourage people to ride the new electric cars lines that had been installed throughout Seattle. The historic Bathhouse at Golden Gardens was built later on, in the 1930’s. Golden Gardens is now considered one of the most popular parks among over 450 in the Seattle Parks system.

Exploring the JM Cellars Outdoor Venue

July 8, 2015

It is the season! Outdoor weddings and events are underway, and we’re excited to share one of our preferred off-site venue partners, JM Cellars. Located in Woodinville, WA, JM Cellars is known for its beautiful and serene outdoor space, featuring gorgeous grounds, lush greenery and whimsical Northwest touches.

JM Cellars, Woodinville, WA

John Bigelow, owner of JM Cellars, started studying winemaking in the mid-1990’s and quickly became an enthusiast. Soon he and his wife Peggy had converted the basement of their Seattle home into a winery where they fermented and aged 100 cases of wine, and in 1998 JM Cellars was officially open for business.

JM Cellars_A

JM Cellars’ venue is located on a seven-acre property affectionately known as “Bramble Bump.” The beautiful arboretum is full of history that is as rich and bold as the wines created there. In the early 1900’s Bramble Bump was part of a 550-acre dairy farm, which became abandoned when the Great Depression hit.  George McBride bought the farm in 1938, transforming it into one of the largest dairies in Washington State. McBride later passed on five acres of the farm to his daughter Jan, who moved to Bramble Bump to build a home with her family. Avid horticulturalists, Jan and her husband Smitty planted several rare specimens on the property including a Chilean Fire Tree, a Himalayan Zebra Pine, and a Cherry tree (that is now one of the largest in the U.S). In 2000, John and Peggy Bigelow purchased Bramble Bump, working with their gardener Mary to maintain the beautiful land that you see today.

JM Cellars_5

JM Cellars hosts weddings and private events all year long. The perfect Northwest background for any event, Bramble Bump’s grounds include a walking trail, a rock garden and bocce ball court, a pond, and a patio where guests can mingle and relax. Inside JM Cellars is a main tasting room and a fireplace room, which are ideal for private events.

Fourth of July Party Inspiration from Herban Feast

June 30, 2015

We can’t wait for a sunny 4th of July filled with good food, fireworks and parties! Are you hosting and/or planning a party? Here are some Independence Day event inspiration and ideas from our favorite Herban Feast events.


july HF_decor1

A grown-up lemonade stand is a summery way to showcase your eats and treats. Plus, it’s easy to create!


july HF_decor2

Tables covered with gingham add a fun picnic feel to any kind of event.


july HF_decor3

Add 4th of July spirit to any surface with bright (and patriotic!) ribbon.



july HF_food1

Serving seafood is a fun alternative to traditional barbecue food.


july HF_food3

Have your burger and eat it too! Pretty trays for burgers and fries are more visually appealing than a plateful of patties and paperware.


PicMonkey Collage_july HF

Downsize your favorite summer desserts. Make grab-and-go sizes of sweets for a potluck or buffet style party.



july HF_drink1

Drink buffets are a fun alternative to a bar. We love this margarita one with fresh fruit for guests to add in.


july HF_drink2

Bring out your southern roots with traditional iced tea and lemonade. These dispensers are fun and casual. Bonus points if you have a vintage truck to put them in!


july HF_drink3

Make your drinks patriotic. Festive straws and name tags are an easy way to get in the holiday spirit.

Happy (almost) 4th of July!

June 10, 2015

Take a peek into one of our off-site venues – the beautiful DeLille Cellars. We love this location for its incredible greenery and breathtaking water views, oh and the wine!

A little history and a few fun facts: DeLille is located in Woodinville and was founded in 1992 by Charles and Greg Lill, Jay Soloff and celebrated winemaker, Chris Upchurch. The winery was originally founded with the mission of creating a new Bordeaux blend using grapes from Washington State vineyards. Today, DeLille produces three different wine collections – DeLille Cellars, Grand Ciel and Doyenne. Each wine is made of grapes from their own vineyards in combination with fruit from the Yakima Valley.

Lucky for us the sun was shining and we were able to show off our outdoor patio. The perfect spot for a cocktail hour or late night snack. Whimsical picnic furniture perfectly complemented the outdoor space.


Guests got a chance to sample some of our spring/summer menu items including our signature sweet potato and Dungeness crab cakes and our citrus rubbed wild Pacific salmon with blackberry and brown butter emulsion. At the bar we mixed up our Herban smash cocktail with bourbon and orange bitters.
