October Occurrences

So the clocks have gone back and the mornings are rather dark and dreary…but that doesn’t mean we are! Far from it! We are now on the countdown to party season and whilst wedding season seems to have calmed down, we’ve still had plenty to cater for this month and are in the full swing of planning ones for next year. Amongst some big birthdays and a corporate to end the month we are planning something super exciting for later this year and we can’t wait to reveal all.

Food and Events

October has bought with it the usual mix of weddings, social and corporates in amongst planning something fabulous for the next couple of months. But that’s for another time. The month started off with a fabulous 50th. We catered for a fancy but informal tipi based party at the client’s home. Bowls of yumminess were served followed by some sweet treats and bountiful amounts of cheese, all washed down with champagne, wine and some local beers. Sometimes a slightly more informal feel to the catering for a birthday works just as well. We love bowl food – guests get to mix and match with various dishes and it saves on the formal sitting down; you can mingle and chat whilst eating and no formal seating plan is needed!

The midst of the month saw weddings take place, one back at Micklefield Hall. We loved the menu for this one – wood pigeon followed by wild bass, topped off with salted caramel and peanut butter cheesecake – yes pleasseee!

Spread throughout the month we had corporate events, ending in one biggy at Windsor Guildhall for a lovely group of hoteliers. Impressing 70 top hoteliers takes some doing…but luckily we managed! Go Team GB!

Weddings

This month we have mainly been in full planning mode for next year, gathering quotes and presenting them to our clients. This part of planning is always the most time consuming but it pays to get it right, particularly matching the right supplier to couple and ensuring that they have the vision and style that is designed and wanted for the wedding day. It’s actually quite fun and we love presenting all information to the couples and are then on hand for advice.

In between all of the quote gathering we were at Stoke Park’s wedding showcase mid-month where we got to meet some wonderful couples and thoroughly enjoyed chatting about their weddings and plans; it’s always such an exciting time!

This time of year brings various networking and industry events, some of which we have been lucky enough to attend recently and others are coming up over the next couple of months – hello Christmas party time!

We were also super thrilled to see one of our inspiration shoots that we planned and shot earlier in the month featured on B.Loved blog – you can see more here. So much Autumn loveliness!

With that in mind and the fact that we are (I shall say it very quietly) only a few weeks away from Christmas, we have lots to do ready for parties and events, so we best carry on…

Until next time…Emma. x

Falling for Fall

So it appears that Autumn is very much here and do you know what we are ok with that! After a busy Summer full of events and weddings, it’s time to recharge the batteries, start planning for next year and most of all get cosy!

Being born in October, I have a particular fondness for the Autumnal months and here’s a few reasons why we think this season is pretty ace and may have you all falling for fall.

1. Colours – All the rich hues and tones on the leaves surrounding us. The coppers, reds, oranges and rusts are super stunning.

2. Warm chunky knits – jumpers, cardigans, scarves – yes, we absolutely adore! Looking cosy, stylish and keeping us warm on these colder days.

3. Boots – Fashion led again, but so versatile. So many styles and keep our tootsies warm and dry.

4. Food – Of course! It’s only natural we would talk about food. And we love our Autumn/Winter menu – full of seasonal goodies – apples, pies, berries, soups, hearty, comfort food. Yums!

5. Nights In – Yes we love our nights out, but when September hits and Saturday night TV in the form of X Factor and Strictly return, we don’t mind cosying up and staying in.

6. Walks – The crunch of the leaves on the ground and the crisp, fresh air – perfection!

7. Blankets – Your winter wardrobe is out and about and the same applies for your home. Blankets return and it’s a full on snug fest.

8. Warm Drinks – A whole lot of yes please to Hot Chocolate and Mulled Wine.

9. Fireworks and Bonfires – Any excuse for fireworks to be honest! Toffee apples, marshmallows, standing around a bonfire, sparklers and cooing over fireworks.

10. Countdown to Christmas – Yes we said it! Sorry…The countdown however is on! Not many pressie buying days left I’m afraid!

See Autumn is a glorious season and we have full on fallen for fall (ok, my favourite one, so I’m biased) but the Goose&Berry girls love these months and we’re sure you might agree with some of the above! In fact we know you do!
