MEP Roaring 20's

POP, CLINK, FIZZ! A Catered Affair is 20!

     Some of Nashville's top event vendors came together to help us celebrate this special milestone. Our open house had a 1920's Gatsby inspired theme full of glitz and glam, flappers, and suspenders. Former clients, "friendors", and the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce were in attendance to help us cut the ribbon and ring in our 20th year of business. 

        We cannot show you all of the memories without covering the history behind A Catered Affair. Kellie Bryson started this company making desserts, which then led to birthday cakes, which led to wedding cakes, and then led to catering at a local wedding chapel.

         A Catered Affair has gone from a small business venture catering only off site events and parties to evolving into the in house caterer hosting its own events here at Legacy Farms. 

        The Legacy Farm's Event Center was transformed into the glamorous headquarters where our guests could come have a special signature cocktail, make themselves a salad from the ultimate salad bar, enjoy something sweet at our doughnut bar, try out our self serving biscuit station, or watch their shrimp and grits cook right before their eyes with their choice of toppings added by one of our professional chefs. Our most popular sparkling feature were bedazzled bon bons, delicious and dazzling!

         Our loft's soft and natural beauty was intensified with a spray of beautiful white florals and feathers draped with jewels. Candle and string lighting highlighted the added greenery and iron lanterns. 

           Heritage Hall's rustic setting was the perfect resting place for mix matched china, copper and teal tones, log slices, mason jars, lanterns and sunflowers. Crystal glasses and tea cups complimented our place settings perfectly! 

A fantastic night had by all. We could not have done it without the help of so many incredible Nashville wedding vendors!

5 Ways to Make Your Event's Meal Stand Out!

   Long gone are the days of potluck style weddings where Aunt Susan and her friends are in charge of the meal plan. Today's couples are involved more than ever in the planning of their special day's cuisine. Whether it is a buffet that your guests can't stay away from, or a plated meal that looks as good as it tastes; your event's meal has no reason to not make a statement! 

 We've put together 5 of our favorite ways to help your food wow the crowd:

1. Edible Art

The orchid displayed in this photo is not from the florist, it's from the chef! Edible decor on your food is certain to be a hit!

2. Make a Display!

You can really put your buffet on display by adding various floral and fruits as decor, using unique granite slabs, cubes and baskets as risers, or even incorporating your centerpieces' lanterns and vases in the mix! And BONUS: Main Event Productions includes the decor as a part of their packages!

3. Adorable Signage 

Don't leave your guests wondering what that "yummy little cake bite thing was" they just ate; label it! Whether you use a chalkboard, framed print, individual food labels, or even a printed menu at their place setting; including them in on the secret of all your fabulous cuisine picks will leave them informed and full!

4. Serve Guests with a Friendly Face

Hiring a great team to make your special day the best it can be is all too important. A Catered Affair takes the time needed to make sure their events are staffed with friendly and smiling faces who are eager to make your guests and you feel right at home! 

5. Share Your Story

This couple not only personalized their main dish for their wedding but they also brought their guests inside the beginning of their story together. Can you just imagine the "awe's" as they filled their plates?!

Nashville wedding caterers with Extraordinary taste!

We can honestly say in the many years we have been catering weddings in Nashville we have never had a bride ask us to cater her event with plain, ordinary food. In fact it is quite the opposite, brides want their big day to be the most memorable event anyone will ever attend. In order to pull off such an event one would need out of the ordinary, and no wedding caterer in Nashville does extraordinary better than A Catered Affair! A great option for a lasting impression would be our Demitasse Shooters, A flavorful seasonal chowder accompanied by a mini sandwich and served in demitasse cups.
Your choices include: 

 Nashville Wedding Catering
  • Lobster bisque soup sip with a mini crab fritter
  • Butternut squash soup sip with a mini grilled cheese
  • Sweet corn chowder soup sip with a mini crab fritter
  • Tomato basil soup sip with a mini grilled cheese

It can only be described as AMAZING!
