Explicate Your Event Plans

Working closely with our always-attentive event planners, you will benefit from all the advice and guidance you need to bring your event theme and creative ideas to life. If this means touring Zilli Lake & Gardens together, then we can arrange for that. In other cases it means meeting up to map out your floor plan guided by our inside knowledge of your event space. Wherever we meet, you’ll leave with a personalized plan and a code to your All Seated website to access up-to-date diagrams and seating charts. And you can trust that our team has a strategic grid with each area of your event space serviced by experts in its niche who coordinate to overcome any challenges.

Our team will take care of all the hard work that goes into designing a top corporate event. All we ask of you is to share your vision and be open to suggestions about ways to exemplify your theme and surpass your goals. We have decades of experience servicing every type of corporate event. From company picnics and holiday parties to conferences and employee recognition parties, every event benefits from the ideas of designated event designers and their supporting staff. Whether ideas arise in production meetings or when we run your plans through our logistics engineer, your personal event planner will pass on new options and exciting ideas to you.

Preview Mouthwatering Menus

Our culinary team will send you menu options to explore. Allow your imagination to soar through the delicious dishes and let us know how we can customize them to match your event theme and distinct taste. We are also happy to accommodate any dietary needs your guests may have. Once we understand exactly what you desire in your custom menu, we will help you choose the right menu items and style of service for your event type and distinct theme. Then our chefs will put the polishing touches on your personal menu, and, if needed, we will send you a detailed proposal.

Relay and Review Feedback

After each event, we gather as a team to critique our performance from start to finish. And critical to this process is the event manager’s nine-page post-event analysis report as well feedback from clients and guests. We love when they reach out to us to extend their appreciation and gratitude for surpassing their expectations. The wonderful feedback we recently received includes:

  • AMAZING everything!
  • Thank you again and I look forward to future events together
  • We were all very impressed with the decorative setup of each food station – not to mention the food was fantastic.
  • I wanted to take a moment to share with you what an incredible job your team did last evening for our Ribbon Cutting.
  • Thank you for making our company picnic so very wonderful and a true class act!
  • Our owner was quite impressed with everything!

When we review our clients’ events, taking into account all forms of feedback, we take a close look at every step of the process. Here is an example of the type of timeline we consider:

  • Following up on initial contact: The client enjoyed a prompt response to their online inquiry and enjoyed getting to know one of our friendly professionals. With their message coming a year in advance to their anniversary, we had plenty of time to learn about their dream event and offer ideas. As we spoke, an elegant and memorable event vision came to life.
  • Creating a personalized design plan: With their venue selected, we got to work creating a floor plan with décor that matched their 50th anniversary party theme.
  • Customizing menu choices: A fine plated dinner was the perfect match to the client’s upscale anniversary celebration, and we enjoyed learning about their favorite dishes to showcase in it. Together, we decided to make the first dish they shared—a beef tenderloin—one of the main courses.
  • Private tasting: The client was thrilled from their first bite of our filet of beef tenderloin with Jack Daniels au poivre. It perfectly exemplified their style and story.
  • Finalizing the event plan: Our team worked together to create an elaborate event diagram that facilitated the open floor plan and provided ample room for their DJ and fun dessert stations.
  • Relaying feedback: We were thrilled to hear that the client could not have been more pleased with how their anniversary party played out. We loved seeing some of their favorite photos from the special celebration and were sure to share them with our whole team.
