Sr. Event Manager Glynis Keith Plans Her Own Special Event
Written by Senior Event Manager, Glynis Keith
As a Catering Manager, I plan and execute events for a living. Quite simply, my job is a joy. I work with clients celebrating life’s happiest moments and somewhere in the process the clients become friends and their events become very personal to me. And, each and every one is my favorite until the music ends, the lights go up and the trucks back out of the loading dock. That’s when it’s time to focus on the next one.
This summer, though, I had the opportunity to plan and cater an event that just might top the list of all-time favorites – a bridal shower for my future daughter-in-law. I have a wall in my office where I keep photos from events, notes from clients, and pictures from magazines, google searches and Pinterest. This is where I hang things that I loved doing, that I’d love to try or just plain LOVE! And this is where I turned for inspiration for the Bridal Shower. I enlisted the help of some of my favorite “friendors” (vendors+ friends) to pull it off.
The visionaries at DaVinci’s who took my concept of an outdoor garden and brought it to life; the creative forces at Select Event Group for table design, the calligraphy wizardry of Kristina Garcia who turned the ghost chairs into the most unique placecards ever and the talented artistic team at VisArts who expertly guided my guests through a fun and inventive art project/take-home party favor. And, of course, the fabulous menu was made possible by Executive Chef Kyle Vermuellen and the supremely talented team at Catering by Seasons.
The food was exceptional from start to finish, and many, many guests provided immediate and vocal feedback about how delicious everything was.
I cannot say enough good things about Glynis Keith and the team at Catering By Seasons.
As mother of the bride, I was totally impressed by the professional, helpful and curteous service Catering By Seasons provided at my daughter's wedding.
