Barb Duvall and her innovative team of merry-makers have years of collective experience in developing and executing first rate events. Barb began her career as Director of Catering at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront, excelled as Senior Event Designer for such top DC caterers as B&B Washington’s Caterer, Ridgewells and Haute Catering and most recently, ran catering at the US Naval Academy. Some of her most memorable events include planning and executing a fund-raiser dinner for 7,000 guests for the Republican National Committee in honor of President George W. Bush; and not one, but two weddings in the midst of hurricanes. Along the way, Barb has amassed a collection of valuable resources, from talented culinary and service professionals to unique and clever decor designers. The result is an expertly executed, highly creative event designed especially for each client in the most cost efficient manner possible. Barb and her team are noted for their unique and artistic presentation and attention to detail. Because of the close relationship with the Fresh Farm Markets in Annapolis and DC, Bowl of Cherries sources products from those farmers or uses only the finest locally produced and sustainable items. Fortunate and successful in her career, Barb feels strongly that giving back to the Annapolis community that supports her is an integral part of business. Life is truly a Bowl of Cherries, and so, Barb proudly supports the Hospice Cup, Fresh Farm Markets, Ballet Theatre of Maryland, Paca Girlfriends, Bourbon and Blazers, Historic Annapolis Foundation, the Annapolis Maritime Museum, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and the Annapolis Film Festival.
