Vegetarian Food Options For Events!

There are many people who are opting to live the vegetarian lifestyle- meat is no longer the food staple of choice. Some planners are finding that the vegetarian client and/or guest may present a challenge when creating the cuisine menu for events. There is really no need to fret over this. There are so many vegetarian options to choose from. Simple choices such as Veggie lasagna and Portobello mushroom burgers served with curried lentils are easy and affordable. While a more refined menu option may be eggplant scallopine or wild mushroom ragout in wine can will always satisfy the vegetarian palate! Vegetarian catering companies, such as Two Brothers Catering in New Jersey, specialize in creating vegetarian entrees and desserts. These catering companies are becoming common in metropolitan areas and are increasingly on the rise is smaller locales as well. So don't every fret about having to accommodate to vegetarian clients, as the options are endless and it really will cut down on the catering budget.

Miami Bound

Ok, so I am Miami-bound. My client has changed the venue of his pool party from New Jersey to Miami due to him being in the music industry and being able to work on a new project there. While I look forward to going to this place that I have never been, it is kind of stressful as the party is less than a month away!

I had to call various vendors to change the shipping locale of items needed and now I have to contact Miami modeling agencies to obtain photos of young women to grace the pool area. I will not let the cat out of the bag as to what the theme of the party is, but let's just say that Hugh Hefner would be proud. To my credit, it is a PG-13 event!!!

An event planner has to be flexible and patience, and both of these characteristics are being tested right now. But all in all, I would not change one thing about it. Now, I just have to found something to wear... Until next time!
