Whenever Bungalow 56 hosts an event we are always asked for the recipes of the food that was prepared. We cater our own events and love coming up with yummy menus that will appeal to children and adults alike.
We recently threw a party for a very special little girl Lola Grace and the food and decor were a hit! So you asked and we delivered... Here are the two Summer salad recipes from the party! We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
