  • Pumpkin and acorn squash soup. What could be more comforting than a bowl of delicious, warm soup on a chilly fall evening? Your guests will definitely appreciate this for a variety of reasons: it will warm them up, it will give them energy for dancing, it will add spice and color to the menu, and it will perfectly complement the entire fall wedding theme.
  • Pumpkin seeds. Want to provide guests with a healthy and delicious snack to munch on? While popcorn may be a very popular choice, roasted pumpkin seeds can be equally great – you can even buy them in bulk and then invite guests to grab a cone of them to munch on while catching up with long distance relatives.
  • Pear and pumpkin tart. Nothing beats a Southern tart – and especially not during the fall, when tart fillings are so abundant. If you want to surprise your guests with something that will taste quintessentially Southern, yet unique at the same time, provide them with a pumpkin and pear tart.
  • Pumpkin roll. If you are looking for a dessert every single guest will love, this is it. There are so many varieties that it is impossible not to find one that’s actually suitable for you (and your guests): chocolate chip, cinnamon, cream cheese, and so on. It’s a delicious sweet treat bound to be appreciated by everyone – so you really can’t go wrong with it.

What Does It Take to Hire a Great Wedding Catering Service?

2 Comments

No matter where you live and where you want to have your wedding (be it New Orleans or anywhere else), the food you place on the tables matters. In fact, together with the music playing on the background of the wedding day, food tends to be one of the most important elements – both for you as the bride and groom and for your guests too.

Under these circumstances, you want to hire nothing less than the best wedding catering service in Louisiana.

What does it take for that, though? What should you be looking at when searching for a genuinely great wedding caterer?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • It’s not that a young catering company can’t deliver quality services – a lot of them can. But when it comes to a huge event, such as your wedding, you want to be 100% certain you get what you paid for: great food that looks amazing and actually satisfies your guests from all points of view. Someone with experience in this industry is more likely to be able to offer this consistently – on your Big Day, as well as on the other wedding days that came before you and those that will come after you.
  • Yes, reviews can sometimes be inaccurate (because everyone’s perception is different, right?). However, catering services with a lot of great reviews are highly unlikely to disappoint. Look at the ratings, but look at the number of reviews clients left – it might be an indicator of how willing people are to actually leave a review once the wedding is over, as well as an indicator of how many people are willing to hire this company.
  • Does your catering company work with local providers? Do they make sure the food is maintained fresh from their kitchen to your tables? These things matter tremendously – so make sure to consider them.
  • Nothing is more appealing than a generous menu, with plenty of options to choose from. Can your catering company provide you with delicious, varied Southern foods everyone will love? At the end of the (Big) day, you want people to relate to the food on the table. You want comfort foods that will make everything feel familial and cozy – and your catering company should be able to provide you with that.

Virginia Williams’ Wedding Was So, So Beautiful!

Leave a comment

Virginia Williams got married – and, as you’d expect it from a celebrity, her wedding was nothing short of absolutely superb details. What are the ones that amazed the world the most and how to “steal” some celebrity wedding inspiration from Virginia Williams and Pusha T’s wedding?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • The wedding guest list was quite restricted with about 150 of the couple’s closest friends attending the wedding. Of course, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian couldn’t have missed such an event, so they were there too, to celebrate the newlyweds’ event. Who was the Best Man? None other than Pharell Willams, of course.
  • The wedding took place in Virginia Beach at a historic hotel, and it was everything you’d imagine a classy, elegant, and timeless wedding would be. Even the wedding date chosen by the couple bears a very powerful significance – not only did they become engaged on the 21st of July, but Pusha proposed at 7:21 PM as well, and, according to his own statements, the “721” numbers keep appearing everywhere he turns around. Talk about destiny!
  • As it happens to many other brides, Virginia Williams found that her original wedding dress idea was nothing like what she eventually ended up with. In fact, she didn’t end up with one gown, but two The first one was a luxuriant floral embroidered Marchesa dress with a deep V-neck, which she wore for the wedding ceremony, while the second dress was a party-oriented Reem-Acra strapless, sweetheart and illusion neckline gown that flattered Virginia and allowed her to have the time of her life.
  • The wedding décor was simple, but it was complemented by the stunning backdrop of the ocean watching over the couple’s wedding vows. To symbolize their solid partnership, the couple said their wedding vows in the middle of the aisle, surrounded by the happy tears of those invited and simple, yet majestic greenery.
  • The wedding menu was nothing short of amazing either. Guests served lobster, short rib, and lamb, and the wedding cake itself was presented only towards the end of the night, on golden shelves. As a send-off snack, Pusha T and Virginia Williams called in their favorite local eatery to offer guests a well-deserved treat.
