Setting up an event can be exciting. Picking out the décor, deciding on the guest list and the sitting arrangement and finding the right venue. These are the best parts of any event planning business. Yet there is an even bigger component that can be just as exciting; the catering aspect. Catering is fun. Sitting down with the client to decide on the menu, the first tasting and then the meal preparation once you’ve settled on the final menu.
With all the excitement of the coming-together of a perfect event, it can be very easy to neglect the tiniest, yet just as important aspects of the event. In catering, this is often the cutlery to be used. Say you are catering a wedding in Bournemouth and the wedding planner has made the menu clear but has neglected to specify the type of cutlery they need. In this case, it is up to you as the caterer to come up with the perfect cutlery according to the menu.
How to Choose the Perfect Cutlery in Bournemouth
The menu plays a big role in the type and size of cutlery you choose. You can’t use a steak knife if the main course is fish. But that’s not all you have to consider. There are certain aspects of choosing the right cutlery that will make this particular wedding planner a regular customer.
One of those factors is quality. A recent research by the University of Oxford found that the taste of the food we eat is very heavily influenced by the cutlery we use. You tend to enjoy food more when the cutlery is perfect for the meal. The quality of a cutlery is determined by a lot of factors including shape, size, weight and color.
As you choose the best quality cutlery, you also want to ensure the cutlery you choose fit in with the event theme. What is the color scheme for the wedding? Is the theme contemporary, elegant or more traditional? Answering all these questions, with the planner’s help will make it easier for you to choose the perfect cutlery. It is never a good thing to arrive at the venue only to find the color and style of cutlery is completely out of sync with the general theme of the event.
