Want in on an insider’s secret? January has recently become the new December offering up some of the least over-booked dates and many more venue options for party planners all over the San Francisco Bay Area. January’s low occupancy rates for event venues, lower demand for event rentals and even (dare we admit??) caterers, means prices can dip 10-20%, a huge opportunity for event and party planners. Whether you are booking a band, renting linens and dinnerware, hiring a photographer or contracting a floral designer, you will just LOVE the wide variety of choices you can find and affordable pricing January events allow.
And then there are your guests. After getting into the “party-party-party” swing beginning in mid November, between company shindigs, Christmas house parties, New Year’s Eve parties, year-end functions, family gatherings and other reasons-to-gather, your guests will be in complete party-withdrawal by January. With fewer events to compete with, your January invitation will stand out as the “go to” event, kicking off the new year with a Bang!
And then…what about what’s in season for your menu? In January, we’ve got LOTS of options in seasonal fresh produce from Beets, Chard and Kale to Kumquats, Blood oranges and Passion Fruit. I can feel a recipe coming on just thinking about it!
So get your creative juices going and think of an innovative theme for your January event. A fundraiser for your favorite non-profit or school? Come as your favorite 2015 trend or World Series winner? We’re sure you can dream up just the right twist for a January soiree and at Joshua Charles Catering, we’d be only so happy to assist!
