A large portion of planning for an event is deciding on a menu – knowing the number of people you need to feed, deciding what food you want to serve, preparing the food, serving the food, and cleaning up once your guests leave. Listed below are five GREAT reasons why you should consider event planning services and catering for your event.
Planning an event requires a lot of time and effort. I can assist you with two of the major tasks: event planning and catering. A lot of thought goes into what to serve at an event and how to plan it. We can ease this stress and take care of the hard work.
Make a Statement
When an event is catered, it leaves a lasting impression with guests. It makes an event feel more important and structured.
If you don’t have to plan, cook, and serve food, imagine how much time that will save! Planning what to cook, shopping for groceries, cooking for hours, setting up and serving the food takes a lot of time. And when planning an event, time is precious.
Attention to Detail
We take time to present your event and catering choices in a way that will impress your guests.
These are just a few reasons to incorporate Paprika Meets Parsley into your next event. They can help make your top priority become spending quality time with your guests….Perfect!
A unique experience I won’t forget! There is everyday catering & event companies and then there’s Paprika Meets Parsley. Don’t miss out working with this professional. Love her “cinnamon espresso pudding”!Gary Festevand
