Pairing Your Menu With Your Event

Choosing the right menu for a special event can be just as important as choosing a location. Food can communicate a theme, convey a feeling or set the mood of an entire night. Taking great care in planning a menu shows your guests how much you appreciate them, and a great meal can help make a special day even more memorable.

Here are some things to consider:

Choose the style of service to match the style of the event.  A plated meal conveys a more formal feel while a buffet can help get the guests mingling.

Have you menu match your theme. Having a luau theme, choose Hawaiian food.  For an outdoor lunch, you can’t go wrong with a barbeque buffet.

Ask what is in season so you can give your guests the freshest farm to table selections.

Think about the weather.  In the heat of the summer you might want a lighter entrée while in the winter comfort foods will warm your guests up.

Know if anyone has a allergy or dietary restriction so you can have a special meal ready for them.
