Wedding planning consultation help from LUX Catering & Events - Utah's premier wedding planners and wedding caterers As wedding planners, it is our joy to make your dream wedding a reality. But in order for us to do that, we have to have a very clear understanding of what your dream wedding looks like. To do this, we schedule a couple consultations with each couple so we can get to know you, your relationship and the special details of your love, your ideas on themes, colors, flowers, food, etc. We've already had our first consultation with our lovely couple getting married this spring. Here are some tips to help make your first consultation go smoothly and successfully:

It's that wonderful day again where we are encouraged to celebrate the classic and historical spirit that pairs so wonderfully with delicious food. But we are at a loss of exactly how to celebrate today, so we devised a list of all the ways we could celebrate wine. Here is what we are reading or planning for our day: Celebrate Drink Wine Day around Utah with Lux Catering and Events  

It's World Vegetarian Day! To celebrate, we took a look through our archives for an easy yet delicious recipe we could share with our vegetarian friends. Talk about a hard decision! We take thrill in creating new menus and reimagining old dishes anew for our vegetarian and vegan clients. We want to ensure that each bite is delicious and contributes to a beautiful experience regardless of your diet limitations. Thus, we have a lot of recipes to choose from!

National Cherries Jubilee Day is here and we are highlighting our live action cherries jubilee crepe station! But before we get to the yummy pictures...

A Brief History of Cherries Jubilee

Cherries jubilee is a dessert that consists of cherries in a sauce, usually a simple syrup, flambéed in some kind of liquor (typically brandy, or kirschwasser). It is served as a dessert topping, usually on ice cream (or our favorite: atop warm, freshly made crepes). Cherries jubilee is generally credited as being created by chef Georges-Auguste Escoffier for Queen Victoria's Jubilee celebrations in the late 19th century - hence the name!  

Our Marketing Director, Katie Sanchez, recently took a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! While there, she kept an eye open at what tips caterers and event planners could learn from the entertainment giant. Here's Katie: "I've been visiting Disneyland almost yearly since I was 4. I am no stranger to the magic, attractions, and treats the park has to offer. However, beyond the shiny castle and your favorite characters roaming the grounds, Disneyland is a major operation to carry out every single day of the year; an organism that must run smoothly and quickly to keep on top of the show. With an average of 16 million guests per year, Disneyland has the large task of feeding - and appealing to the senses - of all these guests!

Disneyland, and Disney in general, is a brand with a die-hard loyal following. How can you as a caterer or event planner, infuse the same wow-factor into your events and make your guests loyal to your company?
