Tips, news, and more to help make sure your event goes off without a hitch.

Dear Friends:

These are challenging times for us all. I have clients who have wedding plans and are having to postpone them indefinitely. Clients with events in the fall are already very worried and unsure of what to do. My industry and all the other industries that are tangential to the events industry are at a stand still. The best word I can use is decimated.

In my imagination, I will be there looking up at the Eiffel Tower and gazing at the Seine... Hmmm... In fact, I will be in the kitchen prepping for the spring/summer season. If you are planning an event (for that time frame,) it's okay to think Paris, but plant your feet here and start planning, today.

Winter Doldrums

While the weather in the North East has been mild by any standards, it is still February. Studies tell us that the yearning for spring looms strong from now till 4/1! The solution? Throw a Doldrums Soiree! Just catered such an event Saturday. It was fun, festive and got the results needed.

When To Start Planning For A Wedding

People ask me all the time, when should I start planning my wedding? Experience has taught me that people plan their wedding anywhere from 1-2 years in advance. There are many who are comfortable with the "seat-of-the-pants" planning process. That is, a keg, a BBQ and the proverbial donuts. If it works for the bride and groom, go for it. Then there are the uber detailed planners. Their notes and folders of pics, (apparently collected since childhood,) would qualify as a book trilogy... As you can see, there are extremes for everything!

Planning Valentine's Day Dinner

Ah, Valentines Day. Roses are seen everywhere, people don red and romantic, cozy dinners are a staple. However, why go to a restaurant when you can have a lovely catered dinner at home cooked and served by a private chef? Sound wonderful?
