Food Trucks: Introducing this Southern Delicacy to Wedding Menus

by LC for Masha Halpern

Fact or fiction? Food trucks are becoming a desirable catering option for weddings in North Carolina.

FACT!

Several food trucks - especially in the Triangle area - offer full service catering, and will often provide you with a number of delicious food options that are not regular menu items. These food truck businesses adopt a "have it your way" style when it comes to catering: 

1. They can serve guests with or without their truck.

2. They'll cater just about anywhere.

3. They sweeten the deal by offering professional staff and rentals....just like a standard catering company!  

Already have your reception planned but like the idea of having a food truck at your wedding? Try this on for size: hire a food truck to serve guests small appetizers and refreshments before and/or after the ceremony. It will tide your guests over until dinner is served (which is particularly good if dinner is at a separate location!), and your wedding will go down as the most memorable wedding EVER for your guests. "Food truck... at a wedding? Yes please!"

Do keep in mind that food trucks are giving up a shift elsewhere to cater your magical event. Be sure to contact your favorite food trucks about pricing and if they have catering minimums, which could change based on the day and season.

As we've mentioned before in a prior blog post, the Triangle is host to a vast food truck community known for its delicious food and treats. If you're southern through and through but have many out-of-town relatives, this is the perfect opportunity to have them sample the delectable cuisine of the South. Bon Appetit!

Well-Attended Client Appreciation Event at TOPO Distillery!

New on the Market -- 1205 Highland Trail in Chapel Hill!

by LC for Masha Halpern

Welcome to 1205 Highland Trail!

www.1205HighlandTrail.com

Resting on the outskirts of Chapel Hill in the blissfully secluded subdivision of Highland Forest is this stunning transitional with undertones of rustic, yet sophisticated, beauty. Set off the quiet cul-de-sac road that is Highland Trail, this home lies in the center of a wooded, private acre & offers the allusion of living distant from city life. 

Enter through the covered front porch into an open, freshly painted foyer that features a wrought-iron staircase & powder room with marble floors with octagonal picture window. A spacious living room is highlighted by a gas log prefab fireplace with hearth featuring Slate Inlay, newly refinished hardwood floors, & a triple window ushering in natural light. An arched entryway leads to the formal dining room featuring two art nooks & an oversized picture window that grants an astounding view of the picturesque back yard. A second arched entryway separates the dining room from the eat-in kitchen, where such accents as subway tile backsplash, stylish pendant light over a porcelain sink, & oak cabinetry make a grand display. The kitchen is really special & features a new stainless refrigerator, counters accented by ‘bull-nose’ edging, a pantry, under-cabinet lighting, range hood over electric stainless stove, large washer/dryer closet, & sliding glass doors to the newly built custom deck.

And a great surprise … hardwood floors on the second level, including the three bedrooms. Unique to the master bedroom, a soaring vaulted ceiling & recently updated master bath with tile surround shower & deep-soaking garden tub, Palladian window, granite-topped dual vanity, water closet & walk-in closet with wood built-in shelves. The master bedroom also includes a third level loft with new carpet & pad; the versatility of this extra room allows for multiple uses, & offers access to the unfinished attic. Passing by a full guest bath with marble floor & single oak-cabinet vanity, step down the hardwood- floored hall to bedroom two where natural light creates a happy space. Bedroom three has gentle light through two corner windows, ceiling fan & bamboo floors – the perfect baby’s room!

Savor the fleeting days of summer on the brand new custom deck featuring steps that lead to concrete & cobblestone patios & raised garden beds. Both children & pets will enjoy the half-acre fenced back yard with its stone outcropping arranged like an obstacle course around the deck & patio area. This truly is paradise for gardeners & nature lovers alike!

This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a Chapel Hill address & low Chatham county taxes. 1205 Highland Trail is only minutes from Fearrington Village, Southern Village, The Lumina Theater, downtown Chapel Hill, UNC Hospital, & Hwy 64 to Raleigh.

Introducing 104 Ridge Trail in Chapel Hill's Village West!

by LC for Masha Halpern

Welcome to 104 Ridge Trail!

www.104RidgeTrail.com

Tucked away on the crest of Chapel Hill’s Village West community, 104 Ridge Trail offers the perfect mixture of upgraded interior style & a location with extraordinary convenience as it rests near “the heart” of the Southern Part of Heaven.

Shaded by a canopy of trees, the front wooden walkway is bordered by natural landscaping & leads to a covered front porch. Enter through the newly painted front door, & step into the foyer featuring slate floor & sidelight window. The updated kitchen features ALL NEW beveled edge ‘faux marble’ laminate counters, stainless sink & faucet, electric stove, refrigerator, & mahogany-stained cabinets with brushed nickel hardware. All new hardwood flooring flows from the breakfast nook throughout the main floor and draws your eyes through double windows & glass doors at each end of the home. Its gleaming wood floors create a clean, cohesive look throughout the entire main level. A wood-burning prefab fireplace with mantle rests in the corner of the living room, and sliding glass doors lead to the back deck, which features an extra storage room & overlooks the naturally landscaped back yard.

Pass the powder room & walk up to the newly carpeted stairway & second floor. The master bedroom showcases a wall of his/her closets & private full bath. Down the hall is a full guest bath with a single cultured-marble top vanity & newer commode. Bedrooms two and three are adjacent to each other; they are carpeted & include generous closet space & double windows. Built-in plant holding shelves & great views to the back yard are a special treat in these rooms.

The townhome is steps away from the free bus service (literally out your back door!) & Village West’s community amenities, which include tennis & basketball court, clubhouse with grilling area on the deck, & adult & infant pools. It is within biking distance to UNC’s campus & downtown Chapel Hill, is on the CH Transit line & a short stroll to Umstead Park & Foster’s Market. Enjoy being mere minutes from I-40, Durham, Raleigh, Research Triangle Park and more!

Welcome to 430 Fairoaks Circle in Chapel Hill!

by LC for Masha Halpern

430 Fairoaks Circle

Known for being home to The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is rich with culture and appealing to individuals of all ages. 430 Fairoaks Circle is near “the heart” of this colorful southern town in the low-key community of Village West. It offers both the convenience of close proximity to downtown and the benefit of a quiet lifestyle. 

This end unit townhome backs to dense woods, which provides an added level of privacy. From the parking lot, the paved walkway brings you to the side entrance with a covered porch. The foyer features parquet floors, carpeted stairwell to the upstairs, and a coat closet with hidden under-stairway storage. Straight ahead lies a Galley-style kitchen that is complete with a brand new vinyl floor, new deep sink & faucet, a storage & butler pantry, skylight, and cabinet & counter space galore. Life will be simpler with the connected dining and living area, allowing for both ease of entertainment and the feeling of togetherness with family. Sliding glass doors lead from the living room to the 8x16 deck where one can enjoy a private wooded view (there’s an extra storage room off the deck, too!). The main level also includes a full bath with new vinyl flooring and a bedroom with new carpet and paint – the perfect guest bed and bath!

Heading to the second level, natural light from the above skylights fills the staircase and upstairs hall. Bedroom two is located at the top of the staircase and, like the rest of the townhome, features brand new carpet and paint. A closet containing the washer and dryer and built-in shelving is down the hall, as is the original style Jack ‘n Jill bathroom that is accessed both by the hall and master bedroom. Located at the furthest end of the hall, the carpeted master overlooks the woods out back and features a wall of closet space – one side for her and one for him!

Village West offers owners a private clubhouse with grilling deck, adult & infant pools, and a tennis & basketball court. It is within biking distance to UNC’s campus and downtown Chapel Hill, is on the CH Transit line & a short stroll to Umstead Park & Foster’s Market. Enjoy being mere minutes from I-40, Durham, Raleigh, Research Triangle Park and more!
