Every Party Needs Dessert!

With so many delicious dessert purveyors in Portland it's hard to choose our fav. After being the host to a stylized wedding shoot in the spring of 2014 we met Chanelle Sabo (now Walters), she is a newlywed. Since then, she has been our go to for party and wedding desserts. Our partnership with Lux Sucre has us craving her salted fudge-y peppermint brownies (just in time for the holiday season), we can’t live without her apple crumble bars and we are in awe of her beautiful cake and cookie artistry. We asked owner and pastry Chef, Chanelle, a couple questions:

  • What is the most popular mini dessert you make for parties? Mini Tarts or French Almond Macarons

  • You got married this year, what is one piece of advise to future brides? Hire a fantastic wedding coordinator!

  • When you have a sweet tooth, what do you crave? A slice of RICH chocolate cake!

We hope you will join us for our 3rd birthday party on 10/28.  RSVP HERE

Happy Birthday Jordana! (Margot's Sister)

Opal 28 is not just for weddings. We host birthday parties ranging in age from 1 to 85 but last year we celebrated multiple 40th birthdays including Jordana's. See what she has to say about celebrating such a milestone at Opal 28.

  • What was the most memorable part of your 40th at Opal 28?  Moving from an intimate, delicious dinner in the Reserve Room with 12 of my closest girlfriends into an epic dance party in the main room was amazing!  I got to do everything I wanted to do for my 40th birthday all at one address!  
  • Where did you spend the most time during your celebration?  I don't think I ever left the dance floor!  Apparently my friends that weren't on the dance floor with me had a rockin time on the patio.  
  • In 3 words how would you describe your party? Relaxed, Happy and Perfect    

We hope you will join us for our 3rd birthday party on 10/28!   RSVP HERE

October is Opal 28’s Favorite Month

It’s the start to our favorite month!  Why is October our favorite? As if we need a reason, we love the morning dew, Autumn chill, vibrant fall colors and the symbolic namesake of the October birthstone, the opal.  There are multiple birthdays to celebrate this month, so, all month long we will be posting reasons to PAR-TAY and look for hints to the grand prize that will be given away the night of our 3rd birthday on 10.28.16.  We hope you will join us.  RSVP HERE

Our Namesake Story: The opal is the October birthstone and we are located on 28th Avenue. Owner, Margot Feves’ treasured Grandma Sadie was born on October 28th. In the 60’s the retail space that is now the Main Room was a grocery store. It’s possible that Gram Sadie once did her grocery shopping at this very location!

CHANCE TO WIN:  Guess Margot's age in this photo to win a 6 pack of Avissi Prosecco!  Submit your reply via our Facebook page
