Mark your calendars for: Saturday April 9 – noon – 5 pm.
What is Catering by Design doing? We’re one of a number of community sponsors, and we stepped up, being that we’re in the catering and event planning business, to coordinate the donations and staffing. (And of course we’re helping out with the food!) There are over 80 volunteers and many many donations. Come early and get a free lunch between noon and 2 pm.
Kids will have a great time with carnival games and egg hunts, all through the day, and free snacks of cotton candy and popcorn.
And did we say that it’s all free?
It is all free!
Last year we had a surprising number of visitors and so this year we’re preparing for 10,000 people!
People come from as near as Apex and Cary, and farther away too, from Fuquay Varina, Pittsboro, Carrboro and Wake Forest.
You’re invited and your friends are invited. Come make an afternoon of it.

A Raleigh Wedding Chapel - St. Mark's
One thing you’ll want to consider is that venues all price differently, some by the day, others by the hour, with different minimum hours. We suggest you estimate costs based on a 6 hour rental. Six hours is about the amount of time needed for a formal wedding reception, with two hours of total setup and take down included.
We hope our Raleigh Wedding Venues list will be a big help in getting you to a short list of venues to choose from.
We’re Catering by Design and we would love to cater your event. Catering by Design is one of the top caterers in the Raleigh Durham Chapel Hill area of North Carolina.

Elegant, Sophisticated Weddings and Outdoor Weddings are 2011 Trends
January is the month that many engaged couples call to talk about their ideal wedding reception and find out what choices their budgets will allow. It’s an exciting time for us because it’s a very happy time. We love hearing what our couples are imagining and letting them know about the flexibility we offer and the choices they have.
Since January is wedding planning month, we thought we’d give you a quick report on what January 2011 trends are getting posted on the Internet.
Compare these two different January 2011 reports on 2011 Wedding Trends. (We added the links to show examples of each of the trends.)
What did these two reports have in common?
The trends they agreed upon were bright or bold colors, outdoor weddings, textures, elegance and personalization.
