04 Apr The Value of Venue
The old real estate maxim “location location location” rings true when it comes to finding the perfect venue for your event. Indeed, you can plan the best event, but if the venue is subpar, it can cast a pall over the whole affair, leaving you and your guests, at best, unsatisfied or worse–unimpressed. The right venue can elevate your event, whether it be a wedding or a corporate affair, lending it a magical air.
When you’re at the top of your game in the custom catering business, like Savoury City’s Head Honcho, Donna Wordsworth and her team, you understand the importance of bringing together all elements. Like most artists, culinary or otherwise, the focus on sensory synesthesia is paramount. A veteran in custom catering, Donna has a profound understanding of how to blend flavour with aesthetics. When all the stars are aligned, the results are stunning and memorable–leaving guests with an indelible impression.
Over the years, Savoury City has worked with the best in the events industry, and we wanted to share some of their highlights! We guarantee that you’ll contract “venue envy!”
