5 Cary Corporate Catering Event Tips
Catering by Design has been around for a long time. We’ve been serving corporations and families in North Carolina for years and we understand what it takes to host a great event with food. From our years of experience, one thing that we can tell you is that you really don’t have to be a professional event planner to benefit from catering tips from experts like us. Lots of the same techniques that we use in hosting big events can be applied to parties you throw for your job, your neighborhood, and over the holidays.
The holiday season will be here before we know it. These tips will help you get organized before you have to be in full fledged planning mode. We’ve heard our clients tell us in the past that by beginning this process early, you’ll be less stressed come November and December. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to share several event planning tips that we’re sure you’ll find beneficial for this year’s holiday season.
1. Make the CEO and managers happy – As soon as you find out the event details, you can set goals and prioritize accordingly to plan for those in charge. When presenting your budget, show the big bosses that you really listen. Present your plan in a way that shows that you care about the overall goals of the event and make sure to highlight the small details. Attention to detail will really go a long way!
2. Make your boss look good – It is really hard to share credit sometimes, it’s only human nature. If you can give your boss credit for his or her guidance and help in the process, your whole department will benefit from your good will.
3. Design the event with the goals in mind – Make sure to also have a plan B and C. You never know when there will be one of those unexpected surprises. Plan for extra guests, unruly children, and seating arrangements gone crazy.
4. Advertise the details – To give guests the full experience, make sure you give them all the details. Try to incorporate the floor plan and where the restrooms are located. Note who the Cary corporate catering company is and where they will be serving the food. Make sure you’re organized so your guests can have an easier time navigating the event.
5. Capitalize on the invite – Maximize every opportunity to capture the attention of your guests. Whether it be a quarterly, or weekly meeting, company newsletter, or fliers on a bulletin board, do your best to get the word out.
