We just participated in our first ever Bridal Show and what fun we had. It was also very exhausting getting everything ready. We wanted to show brides a sample of what all we at Dinner’s Ready Catering can do for events.
The first thing we had to do was decide a color scheme.We went with a really rich plum color and then went from there. We picked some beautiful flowers that we put together ourselves and believe it or not people really responded to how beautiful they were. Who says caterers can’t be flower arrangers. Okay, mostly we know food, but I think we did a good job putting together some beautiful flowers.
We also worked on presenting some unique options for brides to see on what we can do for an event. We had food that was display only so that we wouldn’t have to keep replenishing. Could have gotten really expensive with 3,000 guests expected to be in attendance.
We showcased our beautiful cheese and fruit display as well as shrimp cocktail shooters. Our Decorated Buffet is a great option for a bride who wants an upscale catering. It adds a little classier presentation than the simple chafers. We can decorate the buffet to match any color scheme.
We also wanted to show brides our Plated Dinner Service and our Rentals & Linens that we can provide for their wedding. We presented four different meals on our new square plates. It was a chance for brides to see our range of food options.
Our chefs were definitely the hit of the show. We had them man a Bananas Foster Action Station. They served over 500 brides, grooms, mother of the brides, bridesmaids and maid of honors. They worked hard. Action Stations are a great way to add fun to an event and we can do just about anything for an Action Station. The Bananas Foster Action Station though is my favorite. Who doesn’t love the flame?
All in all it was a great day. We made lots of new contacts and hope for a very, very busy wedding season. If you are in need of a caterer for a wedding or any other event, call us at 315-4443! We’d love to help you have A Catered Affair to Remember.
