When you’re in the middle of planning the perfect charity event, you want everything to go off without a hitch. Many people often underestimate the power of their menu for their charity event. It is about much more than the food. You want your audience to be talking about the event long after it has ended. When you have the perfect menu, it can create these results. Married to Food Catering by Chef Marcel and Jeannie is here to share some tips to help you create the perfect menu for your next charity event.
Unique Gala Fundraising Event Ideas
Before you can start making plans for your event, you need to decide what the focus is. Are you going to go for a black tie gala? Do you have an event like this more than one time each year? If you do, you can focus on a more casual setting as opposed to an annual event that needs to stand out more. You can put your focus on a more casual setting where your guests will feel they are at a quaint brunch if you aren’t looking for a gala feel. Either way, this should be the starting point in choosing your menu.
Find the Right Catering Company for Your Fundraiser
Keep an open mind when you are looking for the right caterer. Many businesses and restaurants don’t openly advertise their catering services. Talk to several vendors before you make your selection and read as many reviews as possible. You should also look into the price you are given and be clear on what is and what is no included in that price. Some caterers will include decorations and centerpieces in their price as well. You need to do your homework on each vendor you talk to, so you know exactly what you are getting for your money. You should also keep in mind that the caterer isn’t always just about the price. If they can help you attain your charity event goals, you may want to splurge to get the results you are looking for.
Dinner Party Themed Food Evenings
It can be fun to center your menu around a theme. If there is an upcoming holiday, or your caterer is known for a particular dish, you can center the menu around that. Other fun theme ideas can come from movies, a country or culture and even colors. When you have chosen a menu theme, you can also incorporate that into the décor for the event to tie it all together.
