In designing your event we always include menu planning and food styling as part of our service. We are also always happy to share our experiences from the hundreds of weddings and parties we have catered and planned; we love to brain storm new ideas to make a party pop. Just try and stop us!
Our favorite part of the process is planning the menu with you! Created to match the fare to the event, the season, and your tastes. We will consider the location (is there an oven?), and personal desires (favorites, vegetarian, cultural). Styling the cuisine and presentation to set the mood or fit a theme, to explore the latest trends or work with your traditions.
We arrange all the rentals you need from plates and forks to tents and dance floors. In our meeting we will discuss all the options and have many samples of the rentals and photos of past events to help us develop the look and feel of your event. It's even likely we know your venue and can advise you on the layout before we even visit the site.
Couches and coffee tables out on the lawn or under the trees, larger events are increasingly having décor items and special seating vignettes. We can recommend a good service, or make the arrangements for you.
We happily provide this in addition to our catering services. If you have general questions about how to plan an event, or need suggestions for other event professionals, simply ask during our meetings or send us an email anytime. There is never a charge for this.
Event planning is the entire process of setting up an event from selecting and negotiating with the various service providers you will need to planning the theme or style of the event, and coordinating all of these activities on the day of the event, keeping the schedule of events at the ceremony site and the reception site. If you would like this service, we are happy to recommend someone; we have several that we enjoy working with.
