With Halloween already here and the rest of the holidays on there way, we have been gearing up for them these past few weeks with our menus and discount deals. We cannot wait to make your holiday parties special this year!
Sustainability is all about Stewardship. Words like simple, local, fresh, organic, “Gold Star” Certified, Long line caught Salmon, free trade coffee and composting are things that begin to tell the story of Sustainability. Today people are more concerned with how their choices influences the environment around them even if it costs a little more as doing the RIGHT thing is precedence. Recently Choura Events made a significant commitment to creating a CATERING MENU that lives up to concept of Sustainability. I was asked if I was doing this for marketing reasons or for a personal belief in the environment. My answer is simple, “I want our menus to reflect our commitment to responsibly serving our guests.” Take a look and let me know what you think!
Everyone likes doing something new. Events many times get stagnant and stick to the same strategies from years past. I always appreciate seeing someone overcome barriers to pull something off. Seeing a “Silent Disco” go down gave me the warm and fuzzies because I'm seeing that people are trying and doing new stuff.
This weekend we are doing the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco and here are a few sneak peaks of it before all the people come. The festival is going to have bands such as Death Cab for Cutie all the way to Explosions in the Sky! You can check out the full line up here.
Not sure how many of you have mowed a lawn, trimmed shrubs or had a fancy cactus garden. Any time your setting up an event you have to care about your surroundings. If not you cause a bunch damage and create a lot of turmoil between you and your client.
Here are my Top 3 recommendations on ensuring a healthy relationship with your grass/ client.
1. During job walk discuss plan on how ALL vendors are going to load in/load out to ensure covered paths.
2. Mark all water lines, gas lines and electrical lines.
3. Bring in vendors that don’t drag, bang, bump or drop.
Its pretty rare to see an event that is this aesthetically pleasing. Many people planning events slop together a smorgasbord of furniture, colors and other items with the high hopes of creating something that is appealing. I believe in creating spaces that feel clean and inviting.(No that doesn't mean modern) My good friend Priscilla said it this way.....don't make your space feel like Home Goods just rained on you.
