In order to have alcohol served at this site (read cash bar) I need to use a particular caterer; although, they do allow food to be served by a company of your own choosing. To keep things less complicated I have asked the same caterer for a menu and quote. I have used this company at work events before and they offer good service. I am just hoping for an affordable tab to go with it.
There are a few other party planning details I could use some input in:
- My guest list consists of about 65 adults and 15 kids;
what should my budget be? Keep in mind the location is offered to me free of charge.
- I’m not ready to send out invitations yet. Should I send out some sort of Save the Date message?
- I am a cake freak, seriously. I can’t decide which type of cake I want because I want more than 5 different ones, my top choices being chocolate mousse cake, strawberry shortcake, tres leches cake, red velvet cake, and pina colada cake. Of course, my friend Pezuzu can make wonders out of any and all cakes (click on his name or on the picture of the cake to see his awesome creations). I was thinking perhaps instead of a big cake I should have individual servings of a few different cakes in the form of cupcakes and/or cup servings. What do you think?
