Banquet Planning 101: How to Execute an Extravagant Event!

Whether you are organizing a corporate event or thinking through your wedding reception, banquet planning comes with its own host of concerns and considerations. There are a few tips and tricks to make your life easier and in today’s blog, we’ll let you know the details you need to think through to ensure your next banquet is a success!

Choose the right venue

One of the most important considerations you’ll have to make when planning your banquet is where to host it. You’ll want to choose a venue that is familiar with hosting banquets so that they will understand the ins and outs of the process and you won’t be left hanging when you realize there was a miscommunication about who will be providing the linens. Speaking of linens, a good venue will make many of the details come together easily. By working with an established venue like Martin’s Caterers, you won’t have to worry about concerns such as linen rental and AV equipment. We provide it all for you so that you can focus on bigger problems that only you can serve.

Think through the menu

The food will be the star of the show at your banquet, so make sure it shines! If your banquet is themed, you’ll want to choose a menu that fits in perfectly with the rest of the elements. The number of guests you will be inviting will have an influence on your menu as well. Talk through your ideas with your venue and your event planner to ensure that the menu you choose will be the perfect fit for your event.
