Six sensational tips for an unforgettable reception!

  1. Work with a planner / consultant to develop a total event concept, where food, décor, and entertainment fit seamlessly with the location and formality of the event.
  2. Treat your guests to a fabulous meal. Be sure to ask the catering sales team to recommend innovative menu items and creative presentation options that are sure to stand out. Consider custom colored plates and glassware, specialty cocktails and “beautiful bites” that will wow your guests and keep them talking for years to come.
  3. A menu card at each place setting will spark excitement and whet their appetite for a fabulous feast.
  4. Strike a balance between color and texture on the tabletop. Linen, china and accessories bring on the shimmer and shine; use them to compliment event décor and create visual interest, but be careful that the ‘look’ does not become too cluttered or over stimulating.
  5. Get creative and use table names instead of table numbers. This is not a new trend rather it endures as another great way to further personalize an event. Plus, uniquely themed table names make great conversations starters.
  6. A beautiful bauble (like a custom beaded napkin ring) or wrapped favor at each place setting affords you a practical way to enhance the tabletop while showing your appreciation to your guests.
