Reflecting On Our 2020

First and foremost, we thank you for your loyal support this year. ‘The year 2020 came with several unexpected and unanticipated surprises’ is probably the biggest understatement of the year. With the events that affected us all both locally and globally, it is easy to fall down that rabbit hole of negativity and reflect on unsavoury things. However, with every challenge also poses a handful of opportunities. This year allowed us to take into account our industry’s challenges, reflect on them, and develop new ways to better serve you, our customers. Despite the number of cancellations we faced due to the Provincial measures in place to tackle Covid-19, we were able to pivot and provide the same quality of service and food in new ways that kept our team and your families safe.

With that being said, it is with humble hearts that we bring back our annual tradition of Christmas Dinner To Go.

An Ideal Thanksgiving Dinner

Hard to believe, but it is the end of September and here I was complaining about how quickly July disappeared on us. As we move into the autumn season where, as we know, in Vancouver can become very grey, wet, and cold, it is hard for us to stay focused on the positives. I know you are dreading the chore of having to dust-off your rain boots and invest in a new umbrella, but I do have some good news on the horizon to share!

How To Prepare For A Wedding

It goes without saying that we, at Truffles Fine Foods, has seen our fair share of weddings and events. Having been in the catering industry for 15 years, we have grown accustomed to seeing the best and worst of planning. Yes, planning – the most stressful process of any event you host (especially if it is your own wedding). Planning is what ultimately determines how successful your wedding is. I know “success” is subjective, but you want to put yourself in the eyes of the guest. If I were to attend a wedding, for example, does it look put together or is it missing several elements? Have I had to wait for my dinner because the bride and groom arrived late? Did a golf cart drive through the background of the ceremony as the vows were being said? I’m only using these examples because I have witnessed them firsthand! 

I digress. You get the gist. If you’re planning or know someone who is planning their wedding, you’re in luck because here some some high-level tips to make your event smoother and successful! It will also (hopefully) help you mitigate the stressors that seem to manifest themselves in the days leading up to the big day.

Setting Your Budget

You want to make sure your life happily ever after is not filled with debt, so it is always best to set a budget before you begin making any plans. Ask yourself what is feasible or not? What is necessary? What is or isn’t an absolute must-have at your wedding? Once your budget has been set, you can start identifying venues, caterers, gown costs, and other expenses that you will incur during the planning process.

Identify Your Guest List

Another major headache for engaged couples is finding the proper venue for your big day. I know a lot of you have a dream venue in mind with certain criterias such as view, decor, location, etc., but nothing can be done until you have figured out your guestlist. I’ve encountered several couples who have families so large or a guestlist so long that most hotel or boutique venues were no longer feasible. So, what do you do? Start figuring out who you intend to invite first, and categorize them into people you must-invite followed by the standby list. The latter doesn’t necessarily mean people on this list won’t get an invite, but should folk from the first list cancel or fail to RSVP, there’s the standby list to help fill seats.

With a budget and your guest list in hand, the planning process will slowly start falling into place! In my upcoming blog post, I’ll provide a couple more wedding-related tips to make your planning process all the more easier. Stay tuned!
