Planning a wedding can get expensive — and quickly — but there are numerous money-saving options that don’t require skimping on style and elegance. Here are just three ways you can save some of your hard-earned cash when you’re planning your wedding catering:
1) Offer a buffet instead of a plated dinner
Going the plated dinner route generally means one server for every 18 guests. Rather than shelling out about $200 per service professional, offer a buffet (which requires far less servers) and potentially save yourself nearly a thousand bucks.
2) Serve wine, beer, and one signature cocktail
Featuring a full bar at your wedding gets very expensive. Go for wine, beer, and one signature cocktail instead. Create the cocktail to match your wedding’s colors, theme, or any other feature of the joyous event.

3) Pick a smaller display cake
Rather than spending funds on a huge display cake, choose a smaller version and serve a sheetcake as well. The two combined can potentially serve at least 200 people.

Las Vegas: Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, everyone knows this city is the capital of decadence. And for those that live here, while it’s just another place to work and raise families, employees still expect the best out of their employers when it comes to creating a one-of-a-kind company event. In fact, employers have to work even harder to impress the workers who’ve already seen it all!
Even on a budget, employers must pull out all the stops, which is why hiring talented Las Vegas caterers at a reasonable price is a wise decision. DiVine Events can fit any budget and satisfy even the most finicky eater’s taste buds.
One of our many popular features is our food stations, like the salsa station pictured above. We bring the freshest, tastiest ingredients to your event and let the guests be the designers. You can’t go wrong with a food bar! Hot dog station? Sure! Taco bar? No problem! Whatever your style, we can bring the necessary elements to your company event to wow your employees, put smiles on their faces, and garner their utmost respect.
If you’re ready to plan an event to remember, contact DiVine Events today!
Your employees work hard year round to do the best job they can for your company. Oftentimes, you want to thank them for their hard work but are unsure as to how to do so while still being able to remain on point regarding the company budget.
One fantastic idea? Go through a catering company to offer a breakfast that will not only help remind staff of the benefits of their jobs, but:
* let them know how much they are appreciated.
* build rapport with other staff members as well as increase connections across departments.
* boost morale so that they’ll continue to do an amazing job.
There are many benefits to offering small yet significant rewards to employees, and the simple yet highly appreciated staff breakfast will increase employee morale substantially.
To show your employees that you care, call DiVine Events today to discuss your options!
Planning the perfect event can be tough, regardless of the occasion. Whether it’s a corporate event or a holiday party for work, make it fun and unique by having a picnic! Here’s how to master the art of having one amazing picnic.
Where to hold your event
Take your event outside under the heat of the sun. The weather is warming up, and we could all use a tan and some fresh air. Try a local park! There will be plenty of space so that all are welcome. Children can frolic in the grass together while the adults socialize in the open air. When it comes to discussing important business matters, the kids will be too busy having fun on the playground to distract you and your coworkers.
What to serve your guests
Now, let’s get down to business. Because you’re throwing a special event for a loved one or your entire company, finger sandwiches are not going to cut it. Save yourself the trouble of cooking for tons of guests and get your event catered. Now your food options are endless. Catering provides food for everyone, no matter what their diet may be: vegetarian, gluten-free, or lactose intolerant!
If you are holding your picnic earlier in the day, these adorable pancakes will be a treat for everyone to enjoy — and you can even turn decorating them into an event itself!
If you are holding an afternoon or evening get-together, have a salsa bar and turn your picnic into a fiesta! Serve colorful chips and an array of ingredients to satisfy any person’s tastebuds.
For those trying to watch their weight, a grilled salmon salad will satisfy their tastebuds without packing on the calories. Light and low-calorie but savory and delicious!
These delectable tarts will be a lovely finish to your event. They’re easy to eat (perfect for picnics) but still provide for a beautiful presentation.
Now that you have the food and location, you’re set! DivineEventsLV.com has you covered for any minor detail. Normally, planning an event would have you pulling your hair out. Just sit back and enjoy the picnic — but don’t forget your sunscreen!
