How To Make The Holidays Less Stressful

November 20, 2017

As we grow older, the holidays become more and more about family, the people we love, and the times we spend together. We care less about the presents and more about the traditions. Surrounded with family and friends we work to create new memories, try to keep everyone happy and joyful, and take in the little moments that bring everyone together.

But the holidays can also become hectic. With trips to the airport to pick up relatives, finding space for everyone to stay, and hoping that everything turns out as planned, it can all get a little overwhelming, especially for the host. There is a lot that goes into planning the perfect holiday celebration, but there are also ways to make it easier for you and your family, allowing you to have more time together and less time worrying about the little things.

At ROUGE Fine Catering, we want your holidays to be as happy and stress free as ever. In this blog, we are going to give you some tips to have an enjoyable holiday season. Read on if all you want for Christmas is a holiday with zero stress and worry.

Don’t Strive For Perfection

If you have always been the host for the holiday get together, you probably have mastered the decorations and brought the wow-factor year after year. But as you most likely know, it takes a lot of time and dedication to get that wow-factor. Even though you have kept the perfect holiday house a tradition for years, your family will understand when you don’t set up all of the decorations this year—they may not even notice. Don’t strive for perfection, it will only make the holidays and decorating more of a chore. If you have fun with it and settle for “good enough” you will be able to get the important decorations up but not spend an entire day perfecting every last detail.

If decorating your entire house, from the floor to the ceiling, is enjoyable to you but don’t enjoy the time it takes to put them all up, recruit some help. Allow your kiddos and other family member to help decorate. And remember to tell yourself that is doesn’t have to be perfect as you watch your toddler place all the ornaments on one branch of the Christmas tree. Your family may appreciate the decoration more because they put work into them as well! This could become a fun family tradition.

Don’t Be Too Picky About Traditions

While we all love a good family tradition and try to get our family to adopt the traditions we had when we were kids, we should never push traditions. If you used to spend Christmas Eve making cookies and watching “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” don’t expect your family to do the exact same thing every year. Worrying and stressing about traditions is not the point of traditions. They should happen naturally and your family should enjoy doing them. Once they stop enjoying going Christmas caroling, you should stop the tradition. You can develop new traditions or just enjoy something different every year. Remind yourself that traditions are fun and you should not have to force them.

With that being said, there are probably some traditions that mean a lot to you that you want to keep going, so do it! If your family has cut down the Christmas tree for the last 10 years, but suddenly your kids don’t want to put in the time or work, you should do it anyways. Ask if anyone wants to go with, certainly someone will realize how great of a tradition it is and go with you. Keep special traditions going, but ditch the ones that are causing more stress than memories.

Shop Smarter

If you have a ton of family coming to celebrate the holidays with you, don’t buy gifts for every single one. There are many ways you can shop smarter and save money. Ask your family if they want to do a Secret Santa so everyone only has to buy one gift for another person. You could do this several ways. If you have your brother and sister coming to your house with their families, swap families to buy gifts for a draw names. Your family can draw names for your brother’s family, his family can draw for your sister’s family, and she can draw for yours. This way everyone get one gift and has to buy one gift, saving everyone money, and allowing the gifts to be a bit more personal and special.

You could also suggest a White Elephant gift exchange. Set a price limit and have everyone buy a gifts that most of the family would enjoy. Draw numbers and have people select a gift. This is a great way to make Christmas less about the gifts and more about the traditions and the memories.

If you love gift giving and can’t imagine only getting one gift, then give a gift that they will actually enjoy. If your family is bringing their families, get them one gift they can all use—a board or card game that they can play during their next game night, a gift card to a movie theater or their favorite restaurant, or something similar. This is a gift that they will enjoy, allowing them to spend quality time as a family, and helping you from spending unnecessary hours shopping.

Take Time For Yourself

During the holiday seasons, we often forget to give ourselves a break. Make sure you schedule some you time, and spend it relaxing or doing something you want to do, something that does not involve the holidays or caring for the family. Read a book, take a bath, and spend time de-stressing. It is easy to become overwhelmed during the holidays and start stressing about the things that truly don’t matter, which can make the holidays much less enjoyable. This is why it is important to set some time aside for yourself.

During these hectic weeks, you should also make sure you are not giving up your daily routine. If you enjoy reading new articles for an hour in the morning, then do it before starting your holiday madness. Or perhaps you enjoy watching an episode of your TV show after dinner. Relax and spend a few peaceful moments indulging in some dramatic reality TV.

You should also make sure you are reminding yourself to stop stressing. It is easy to get in over your head, but constantly reminding yourself that you should be enjoying time with family and having fun can help you to stop stressing so much and enjoy the time with your loved ones. Remember that not everything has to be perfect and stressing about it won’t help. So, take a breathe, relax, and have fun spending time and making memories with your family.

Ditch The Unimportant Stuff

Some holiday traditions and tasks are not as important as you may think, and if you hate doing them, then simply don’t. Take Christmas cards, for example. These can take a lot of work and time, and could just be one more task that makes the holidays miserable for you. You don’t have to send Christmas cards or you could simply send cards to only close friends and family. Not every single one of your acquaintances needs a Christmas card for your family. Don’t make this task harder than it has to be or don’t do it at all, it is truly up to you. Think about the different tasks you take care of every holiday season and ask yourself if they are worth your time and if you actually care about them, even if you do, there are ways to make them easier.

Do Less

We already gave you the tip of not worrying so much about decorations, traditions, and holiday tasks, but there is one more things that you don’t have to worry so much about—the food. No, we do not expect you to ask your entire family to bring different side dishes, desserts, or even a turkey. Instead of worrying about the big holiday feast, let us do it for you.

ROUGE Fine Catering offers a holiday menu, which allows you to pick up gourmet food for your holiday dinner.

Tips To Planning Your Holiday Parties

November 1, 2017

Holidays are always a special time, where family and friends come together and celebrate, share a special meal, and make unforgettable memories. This season has become even more busy, however, with many different holiday parties that have become so popular. These parties allow us to spend the holidays with our friends and coworkers, meet new people, and enjoy some of the holiday spirit without worry about the traditional family fight.

These parties are fun and festive, but that may not be true for the hosts. Planning a party and executing the party perfectly takes a ton of preparation and hard work. If you are the host this year, we wish you luck. If you are not, send this blog to the host in hopes that it will make their job much easier.

At ROUGE Fine Catering, we can help make your party a hit with our delicious gourmet food options. We can cater to any of your get togethers, from a Friendsgiving to New Year’s Eve bashes. Once the food and drinks are taken care of, your job gets a lot easier.

But to simplify the hosting job even more, we will go over some holiday events that you may be stuck planning, and help give you tips to throwing the best parties. Read on for some tips from the pros!

Friendsgiving

A Thanksgiving with you and your friends, or a Friendsgiving, is a fun and unique way to celebrate with your favorite people. This Thanksgiving meal is generally more relaxed and calm, and perhaps that is because you don’t have to worry about your family asking when you are going to get married. Your friends are the people you choose to hang out with on a daily basis, so having a meal with them and sharing thanks is the perfect way to celebrate Thanksgiving.

This unique tradition has become more popular over the years and is a fun way to get the group together all at once. When planning a Friendsgiving, don’t plan the event on the actual day of Thanksgiving. A week before or after is generally a good time for this event. First, find out when everyone can do it. This may seem like a nightmare, attempting to get everyone’s schedule on the same page. One tip to scheduling is pick a few days and have everyone vote on a day. This way, you don’t have to worry about everyone picking a different day to celebrate.

After the date and time are finalized, plan some seasonal decorations, make a fall-esque playlist, set up an effective layout with enough chairs for everyone, and make sure to have your friends favorite beverages. Many Friendsgiving take the potluck route—having each friend bring a dish or dessert. That is not a bad idea, but if you want to wow your friends, create a menu with ROUGE Fine Catering and let us serve you gourmet food. You will win the award for best Friendsgiving of all time!

Christmas/Holiday Party

Christmas parties are a very popular holiday festivity and you will likely be invited to five of them this season. Whether they are your friend’s, book club’s, or office’s holiday party, you will be able to enjoy the spirit of the season for weeks on end.

But if you decide to plan your own holiday party this year, you will need to do a lot of planning. The first thing you need to do is decide whether to have the party at home or at a venue. Once you have decided on the location, send out invites to everyone you want to invite.

If your holiday party is going to be held at your home, make sure you have everything taken care of before the big day. Set up tables along walls, allowing the food to be accessible while making sure there is plenty of room for the minglers. Set up additional chairs for those who want to sit, light candles to keep the seasonal smells alive all night, and make sure you playlist will have the holiday vibes flowing all night.

These parties are rarely potlucks, meaning you are in charge of all of the food and drinks. But ROUGE can help by offering a delicious menu, as well as bar packages!

New Year’s Eve

The night before the year ends is one of the biggest parties of the year, saving the best for last. New Year’s Eve parties are simpler than others. You need champagne, noisemakers, confetti, things to do before midnight, and great food.

Find games that everyone can play before the ball drops, create a playlist of the year’s best hits, and get your friends talking about their favorite memories from the past year. And at midnight, celebrate with the people you love most. Be sure to get ROUGE to cater, allowing you to finish the year with the best meal you may have ever tasted!

Party planning can be a lot, especially on top of all the other stress that the holidays can bring. Just remember that ROUGE Fine Catering can help make it easier by offers a gourmet menu and bar packages. Start planning now and get ready for the holiday season! Contact us today to learn more.

Planning a Winter Graduation Party

October 23, 2017

Most college students work hard for their degree and graduate in the summer, either on time or a year late. Summer graduations are fun, exciting, and celebrated with family and friends. But there are some students who are a semester off and end up graduating in December. While these graduations are still exciting and important, they can often go uncelebrated and many times this is because of the holidays.

Your student has worked harder than ever before for the past few years and they finally have something to prove it and to be proud of. Celebrating their winter graduation should be a priority and is just as important as a summer graduation party.

In a past blog, we discussed the importance of celebrating a college graduation. And in this blog, we will talk specifically about winter graduations. At ROUGE Fine Catering, we know the importance of celebrating the special moments in life, that is why we offer catering for all events, big and small.

Catering can change drastically depending on whether the event is in the summer or winter.

Graduation parties generally have buffet style entrees with a ton of different snacks.

Decorations

Decorating for a graduation party generally includes a ton of the school colors and the graduate’s photos. While this is always a great and an easy option, there are ways to incorporate holiday and winter decoration in as well. If you have a Christmas tree up, replace your usual ornaments with some bulb ornaments that are the school’s colors. You can also hang your student’s old school ornaments up, the ones that they made throughout elementary school. Many of these probably have old pictures of them, other may be old crafts they created. These are fun because it can show the transformation from child to adult—the beginning of their school career and the end.

If it is snowing outside, and not melting, build a snowman and dress him in your student’s school apparel. Put a hat, scarf, and sweatshirt on the snowman to help represent the school. You could even add the graduation cap to the snowman for an extra touch. This could also help people know exactly where the party is and is a fun activity to do with your family, even though your child is graduating college doesn’t mean they won’t enjoy building a snowman.

Hanging streamers and balloons using the school colors are an easy option for grad party decoration, but take it a step further and add some holiday spirit in the mix with lights. Find string lights that are the school colors and hang them around the home. The mix and lights and streamers is simple and will create a beautiful decoration combination.

Decorations for a graduation don’t have to extravagant. Streamers, balloons, tablecloths, and some confetti will get the job done, and with these tips, you can incorporate winter and holiday themed decor as well!

Activities

While summer graduations are great for yard games like ladder ball, cornhole, volleyball, and other fun games, it is a little harder to do these things during a winter grad party. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun activities at your grad party. A fire pit outside can help people enjoy some time in the outdoors without getting too cold, this is also a great time to make some s’mores. Have a snowman building contest, many of the adults will enjoy feeling like kid again. Or if everyone is up for it, play dodgeball with snowballs! While these may be better ideas for your child’s birthday party, it could be fun for your student and their college friends.

Other indoor activities that can keep people entertained could include ping pong, billiards, karaoke, games, and even photobooths. If your basement is unfinished, or has a lot of free space, you could even set up yard games down there, allowing guests to still enjoy party favorites without having to face the cold weather.

Setting up multiple activities and games will allow people to stay busy, enjoy some friendly competition, and enjoy the graduation party even more. Different activities that allow guest to do their own thing at the party are the best options, so find a few things that will keep them entertained and set them up around the house.

Planning a December graduation party for your student can be fun and unique. A winter graduation is just as important as a summer one, so make sure you plan a party that is fun and festive. A winter grad party can be different, with catering, decorating, and activity options that are unique for the winter season. If your grad is having a winter celebration, make sure you have the perfect catering choices.

Benefits of Getting Catering at Corporate Events

June 21, 2017

Your employees mean a lot to you, they are what keeps your business running smoothly and they help keep your business dreams alive. Doing different things to show your employees your appreciation for them can really help them feel important in their position, and in turn, cause them to work harder and more efficiently.

You don’t need to give all of your employees bonuses just to show them you appreciate them, although surely they would not complain about that. But small gestures can really help show your employees their importance. A few ideas for showing how you value your employees can include having lunch catered once a month, throwing fun cocktail parties at random points in the year, or giving them delicious food during boring meetings.

Need help planning these acts of appreciation? Rouge Fine Catering can help you get started. We are a catering company that serves delicious and high-quality food to any and all corporate events. From small meetings to cocktail parties, we can help you give your employees the treat they deserve.

Whether you need a catering company to help out at your annual New Year’s Eve or your want delivery for the friday meeting that always goes too long, we can help you out. But why should you cater these events in the first place. Well for one thing, it is easier for you.

This blog will go over some of the reasons why catering at your events can help you and really improve your event.

The Bigger The Better

Hopefully your business has grown over the years and your number of employees is now in the hundreds. While this growth means your business is succeeding, it also means that the small dinner parties you once had are no longer an option.

As your business grows, it becomes more difficult to self-host a party and prepare all the food yourself. Even with your employees bringing snacks, appetizers, and desserts, supplying enough food for your employees and their plus-ones can get tricky. If your business has grown to a number that requires renting space to host your party, you probably want to consider catering.

Catering companies can help take a lot of stress out of your life and give you time to focus on other aspects of the party or your business. At Rouge Fine Catering, we are proud of the work we do. When you hire us to cater your cocktail party, you won’t have to worry about anything going wrong.

More Variety

Not only will hiring a catering company be easier for your large crowd, but you will also have a ton of different choices in the food you want at your party. If you are a person who loves a good themed party, you will have the opportunity to pick through a catering menu to create the perfect menu for your event. Bring your entire party together with a menu that matches your theme perfectly.

The large variety of food that you can choose from may also ensure that everyone likes something that is catered. Picky eaters can make it hard to plan parties and events but caterers can offers a large amount of different foods and styles. This means you can accommodate for the vegans, vegetarians, carnivores, sugar addicts, pasta lovers, and every other type of picky eater there is. Variety is the spice of life, as they say.

Shows Appreciation

If you choose not to cater to your end-of-the-year party and your employees end up unhappy about the food or lack there of, you have a problem. Treating your employees to a beautifully prepared and delicious meal will make the statement that your employees actually matter to you and your company. Rouge Fine Catering can deliver quality cuisine to show your employees just how important they are.

This type of appreciation has an impact on your employees. Knowing they are valued in their job will make them realize what they are doing is important to the company and they will most likely end up working harder and putting more effort into their jobs.

Surprising your employees with a catering delivery during the meeting that extends well into the lunch hour, will not only make them happier than ever while sitting in a meeting, but they will also recognize your appreciation.

Not Entertaining Needed

When you have a party or event that you supply all the food for, you end up being the person who has to worry about keeping everyone entertained. You also must keep the food trays full, the beverages stocked, and the snacks overflowing. Cooking and preparing for all of these people may be something you enjoy, but it is challenging, and worrying about keeping the food full and the people happy can make your party experience a lot worse.

Enjoy the party as well and let someone else take care of the cooking and preparing for you. This will allow you to mingle with your employees, have some fun, and relax a bit. Catering companies can really help you stress less about the party running smoothing and help you enjoy getting to know your employees better.

Host a random party to surprise your employees, have delicious food delivered to the office for lunch one day, or even have high-quality breakfast show up at the morning meeting. These are all great ways to show your appreciation to you employees. Getting delicious catering is a great way to show your employees how much they are valued and allow you to enjoy your events as well.

Rouge Fine Catering is the catering company you want to cater your events. We have delicious cuisine, great service, and can help your event be memorable. We can deliver to your office or come to your event. Contact us today to learn more and check out our delivery and full menu!

Unique Dessert Ideas for Your Wedding Day

June 19, 2017

There are many wedding traditions that we carry out today without realizing the purpose behind them. Weddings are a traditional way to represent the union between two people, it is a way to bring two families together and celebrate the couple. The little aspects that make up a wedding also have traditional meaning.

Many of these meaningful traditions are centered around the cake. Wedding cakes are grand, beautiful, and elegant. It is not often you say that about a cake. But wedding cakes have been taken to a new level of dessert. They are often gorgeously decorated, with multiple tiers and many different looks.

Wedding cakes are generally white, and during the Victorian times, this symbolized social importance and wealth. It was expensive to get the fine white sugar, so the lighter the cake, the wealthier a family appeared. The white cake was also meant to represent the bride, the main focus of the bedding.

Nowadays, white cakes are still popular but often decorated with the colors used for the wedding—in the bouquets, bridesmaid dresses, and decorations. This adds some color to the cake, but sure most people do not know the purpose behind the pure white cake.

We also offer a plated dinner style menu a few different ways — dual entree, choice of entree, and composed entree. Study the difference before making a decision, some of these entree style may be more idea for your guest and venue.

Corporate and Special Events

Our full menu for corporate and special events is the same, but the full menu isn’t the only option for either of these.

For corporate events, there is also the choice of a delivery menu, but that doesn’t mean it is any less gourmet than our other catering menus. If you want the fancy cuisine but not extra people in your corporate party, let us deliver to you, giving your event some extra class and saving space.

Special events, such as galas, holiday parties, or grand openings, we have a sample menu, giving you a taste of what the perfect menu would look like for your event.

Get Togethers

For your get togethers that aren’t necessarily fancy or an important event, we offer a few different menu styles that give your party a bit of a high-end feel. For these events we only offer a delivery menu, offering you gourmet food without the service. Our sample menus give you ideas for baby showers, game day parties, anniversary parties, brunch gatherings, and picnics. That’s right, we delivery high quality cuisine to your game day party and your picnic.

Many of these party and menu options also offer bar packages, because what good wedding doesn’t have an open bar?
