A Special Thank You to Our Vendors and Colleagues!

CE RentalsWhat a harmonious relationship the bee and the flower share.
Without nectar, how would our buzzing buddies eat?
And without pollination, how else could a single flower become a field? 

It is easy to view the world as large, an obvious perception. It is far more difficult to remember the minute intricacies that truly churn our daily lives. What if the bee could thank the flower, or the flower thank a bee?  How does one show gratitude for the mutual continuation of life...?

Well, of course, A PARTY!!!

We had incredible vendors flying around our beloved Durham fields this week. The King's Daughters Inn likes to take the opportunity to thank you for your services, your people, your work, and our collaborative effort in creating a beautiful Triangle. We had an incredibly fun evening, with all luxurious amenities accounted for, of course.

We dressed up the hotel for the occasion with linens provided by CE RentalsRocky Top Catering prepared a bevy of delicious morsels. Durham's own Tre Bella arranged our elegant dining room with fresh bouquets. And the icing on the cake? Desserts were by Cary's Details Cake Design (baking out of The Cookery).

Last, but not least, what's an event to do without a little spirit?

The King's Daughters Inn poured Colin’s new cocktail, a fabulous hot toddy made with Maker's Mark, honey, lemon and black tea - the buzz for our beloved bees! It was the perfect way to knock off the chill from outdoors.

Thanks to all who came to eat, drink and be merry.  Here’s to a marvelous 2014 for all!

Here at The King's Daughters Inn, We Love to Love

We love to eat.
We love to drink.
We love to laugh.
And we love to share.

This Valentine's day, we would love to have you to join us for a beautiful, romantic evening filled with some of our favorite activities. We have a sumptuous menu planned, overflowing with bubbly fun and deliciously paired canapes. The details, proverbial meat and potatoes, are forthcoming as you excitedly read on and your mouth begins to water...

Fun Fact:

On average, the mouth contains 10,000 tastebuds. (Give or take, perhaps your coffee was too hot this morning and you knocked a couple out of commision for a little while.) Valentine's Day notoriously accomodates the sweet buds, but we here at KDI prefer a little well-rounded hedonism. We aim to please all 10,000 of those flavor recepticles to kick off your tongue – in whatever way necessary for this evening!

Champagne Anyone?

Our Annual Sparkling Wine Tasting is our favorite event of the year, quite simply because it is delicious. No need to stay the night (but don’t you want to?!); we simply want you to indulge in love this February 14th. Be it your beloved, your best friend, your daughter, your collegue – all roles of love are happily invited to come celebrate. Love your company, love your evening, and get ready to love this line up of lavish pairings we have selected just for you:

To awaken our pallets, we begin with the bright Domaine Louvetrie Atmospheres and continue on a bubbly and savory journey with Sokol Blosser Sparkling Brut (Colin and Deanna’s wedding wine, turned bubbles! Magnificent!), Franck Besson Rose Granit Beaujolais, Berlucchi Brut Rose Cuvee 61 (wouldn’t be complete with out pink bubbles!), and Nicolas Feuillaitte Brut Reserve Champagne.

By this portion of the evening, we hope your mouth is well at work. Perhaps around the 9,000 taste bud range. Drinks and words flow. Mouths and minds in harmony. This is where we introduce our dazzling nightcap, the Montevina Terra d’Oro Zinfandel Port.

Festivities will be held in our elegant dining room from 5:30-7:30PM. We aim to make your evening delightful. Reserve your spot *here*, at only $25 a person or $45 a couple, to ensure your beautiful Valentine's Day this year!

For The Uber Romantics...

There are only a few rooms left for Friday the 14th, but we love a little romance any time of year. Wine lists are located in each room, available to you with a quick dial to the front desk. As the occassion calls, we may suggest the lovely Moet Imperial for a radiant bubbly at to enjoy at your own leisure, or perhaps an upgrade to the Moet et Chandon Imperial Rose. Reduced to $50 a bottle in light of a little love and romance, Moet & Chandon is an industry leader of luxury, fine champagnes, wines, and spirits. Are you salivating yet?  We will even add in some fresh chocolate covered strawberries!

As February draws nearer, our holiday dust settles and we begin to enjoy the new year. There is a good air about 2014, don't you think? Come celebrate with one of the most magnificent, beautiful, and universal symbols – CHAMPAGNE!

Just kidding.
(But the bubbly doesn't hurt either!)
