Swallow This: Love, Loyalty & Faithfulness

Updated: Jan 21, 2019



We have recently adorned one of our Pure Joy Catering walls with these gorgeous ceramic swallows from Portugal. They are the perfect symbol and representation for what we stand for…Love!!!

If you have ever visited Portugal, you’ll see these lovely Swallows everywhere. They have become an iconic symbol for Love, Loyalty & Faithfulness. Lynette La Mere, Pure Joy’s Executive Chef recently traveled there and brought these beauties back to Pure Joy for all to enjoy.

These Swallows have been around since the late 1800′s and quickly became popular due to the nature of the Swallow and the people of Portugal found profound admiration for them. They also became a symbol of Family & Home because Swallows migrate and return year after year to the same place to nest. They would always return “home” with their life partner. That’s right, they have a single partner during their entire lives!

The Swallow is a perfect representation for Pure Joy. We are in the business of creating the perfect wedding day for two people who vow to spend the rest of their lives together. It’s fitting don’t you think?
