Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 24, 2013
Watching pop culture trends always gives insight into the catering & events industry. From TV shows, to movies, to Pantone's Color of the year pick, leaders in the catering industry keep a close eye on these trends, because they always become part of the years' food trends, wedding decor trends, all the way over to business events. As the first quarter of the year comes to an end, some emerging trends have made their mark. Two that stand out are the "Return To Vintage", and "Tea Taking Center Stage".
Vintage styling has always been around, but began to resurface in 2012 events. In 2013, "vintage" will be all the rage. The hit TV show "Downton Abbey" is inspiring Pinterest boards, gourmet bloggers, and wedding planners. The upcoming wedding of one of the shows' characters will definitely spark inspiration in the event scene, with themed parties, menus and decor. The remake of "The Great Gatsby" will undoubtedly have the same effect later this year, with an immersion into the "Old Glamorous Hollywood" look as well. Tea is finally getting its dues. Stepping out of the shadow of its better-known brother, Coffee, tea will make a strong showing this year, with gourmet tea lines, brewers, accessories, etc. Watch for this trend to show up on menus, becoming an ingredient, as decor on event tables, and taking a seat at the "cool kids" table.
Taste of the Best Catering has embraced this new vintage uprising, and created a Garden Tea Party Themed Menu Package, so Columbus, OH residents can recreated their own "Downton Abbey" High Tea event for their own events. The popularity of this type of party request has grown in the last few months, with the 3rd season of the show beginning in January 2013. "Because of the volume of the requests for this type of party, and how fun and creative I get to be with the menus, we only thought it logical, to create a specific menu for it", says Taste Of The Best Catering's Executive Chef, Stacy Robinson. The menu theme is centered on various teas being served, with an assortment of sweet and savory nibbles that guests can enjoy with their tea. This type of set up offers guests variety of menu choices. These new Tea Party Menus are just in time for Spring, and should be a welcome fit for the booming gourmet food movement of Columbus, OH.
