Top tips for planning your event

To help you get started with your event planning, here are some top tips from our brains to help you decide what sort of party you will have.

  1. Set a budget: Your budget will dictate whether you will be able to have a banquet in a Cornish castle or a hog roast in a Devon barn, so set yourself a target and we’ll work around that.
  2. Estimate numbers: Think about how many guests you want to invite, as this will have a bearing on both your budget and your venue choice.
  3. Find a venue: Once you know what you have available to spend and how many people are coming, you can start searching for the perfect venue for your needs. Many beautiful premises will allow event caterers to attend to provide food, but you could also consider a marquee in the beautiful hills of the Westcountry to give the ultimate flexibility.
  4. Talk to us: Now you know your numbers, your budget and where you will hold your event, it’s time to let us step in. Our menus can be built around you and your guests needs and are infinitely flexible to let you achieve what you want. As well as the food, we can offer a range of service styles to suit the ambience of your event, so whether you want a formal banqueting experience or a laid back buffet style service, we’ll be able to provide your perfect package.

You can contact us at any stage of your event planning process to get advice and assistance with your plans. If you’re stuck for ideas, our creative input will help your imagination to take flight. For anniversaries in Somerset to Christmas parties in Cornwall catering doesn’t get better than this!
