    5 Important Food Reminders For Your Event

    If you’re hosting an event or large gathering, it’s important to consider all of the various angles and figure out how to enrich the experience as thoroughly as possible. And of course, Metropolis can have you covered primarily in the music and entertainment aspects of your event. However, while a great band can work wonders to spice up your event, it’s important not to stop there – the perfect event requires perfect details, after all!

    And for many party and event guests, the most important detail is what’s on the menu. Catering an event, both with food and drinks, can be a bit of a headache, but it’s vital to provide some quality selections to give the impression that you care about your guests’ experience. So with that said, here are 5 important food reminders when preparing to host an event.

    1. Cater Too Much
    When you’re staring at a catering company’s menus and prices, there’s always a temptation to try to cut costs here or there. But nothing ruins an event quite like running out food before everyone is satisfied! Caterista online provides a few good general amounts and measurements to consider (as in, how many drinks per person, etc.). Use these for guidelines, and then go a bit beyond. Better too much than not enough.

    2. Consider “Family Style” Food
    One great way to make sure you have enough food without jumping your costs up too much is to opt for family style dining, instead of menus. With menus, you need to be sure you have enough of each item to please every guest. In “family style” or buffet dining, people can serve themselves and it’s easier for caterers to provide bulk supplies.

    3. Offer A Drink Selection
    We’ve all been to parties and events featuring a single white wine and a single red wine as options, and sure, this is generally the cheaper route. But offering a bit more variety can give your guests a pleasant surprise. The Marks and Spencer wine section offers an interesting alternative to catering, as they supply mixed crates of wines you can personally select for your event.

    4. Always Offer Bread
    This one’s simple: no matter how many appetizers you provide, don’t neglect the bread! It’s the universal food to tide guests over before a meal is served.

    5. Have A Vegetarian Entrée
    You’d be surprised how easy this is to forget, unless you’re fortunate enough to have caterers who suggest it or remind you! It’s important not to assume vegetarian or vegan guests will simply eat less or get by on side items. Instead, provide a hearty vegetarian entrée, such as a filling pasta.

And it was just from the start to the end, how you dealt with it, your client, and the actual wedding itself and how… you were very caring about it and were making sure everything was on key.

      PP022 | Nick Ingram | Lifting The Curtain On Bespoke Music For The Events Industry

      Hello and welcome to a brand new year with us here on Planner’s Pod! We have lots of new and exciting things in store for all of you and we do hope you stay with us as we unveil them.

      In this episode, we decided to start things up by having Metropolis’ very own Nick Ingram, our Creative Director, for the first time here on the show. Many of you have been curious and have asked us about how we do things in the company. So, what better way to open this up for discussion than having a team member on board.

      Here we discuss the ins and outs of how to manage a live-band company, what sort of sticky situations we all get into and how we try to deal with those, as well as how to engage with clients and knowing them on a personal level to give them a unique and wonderful musical experience during their event.
