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 members 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 anyway. 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 in several ways. If you have your brother and sister coming to your house with their families, swap families to buy gifts for a draw name. 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 gets 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 gift 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 thing 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. You and your family can enjoy a meal that is better than Great-Aunt Mary could ever make but don’t tell her that. You can choose from a selection of appetizers and hors d’oeuvres, salads, entrees, sides, and desserts, allowing you to choose an entire holiday meal that you can enjoy without all the preparation work. All you have to worry about is picking up your meal by the scheduled time. This is a great way to give yourself and your family a break. You simply have to heat up the food you select and enjoy a gourmet holiday feast surrounded by your favorite people.

Give yourself a break this holiday season and let ROUGE Fine Catering make the meal for you, not only will you have more time to spend with your family but you will also be able to enjoy a delicious meal that will amaze your entire family, yes even Great-Aunt Mary.

Hosting An Eco-Friendly Event

July 25, 2017

In the dawn of the eco-friendly movement, everything we do is now an attempt to help save the environment, little by little. We ride our bikes to work, bring our own reusable bags to the grocery store, recycle, compost, save water and energy, and ultimately attempt to reduce our carbon footprint. We are constantly seeing more businesses “going green” and doing their part to help clean up this planet.

But there are times when being eco-friendly is more difficult. It may not be as simple as using reusable bags, or not using the AC on a cool summer night. Throwing a party or hosting an event is one of those times when “going green” is not as simple. Every little detail of a party can be harmful to the environment, from the invitations to the food you choose.

Rouge Fine Catering can make it easier for you to go green when hosting your annual summer event. We are a certified Green Caterer with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Cylburn Arboretum, and Irvine Nature Center. Our catering company is committed to being socially responsible and environmentally friendly. If you need a catering company for your event, Rouge can help you get fantastic gourmet food as well as help keep your party green. Our eco-friendly options help make us the caterer of choice for the Organic Trade Association’s annual gala.

What do we do to help keep our company green? A lot more than you may think. At our facility in Hunt Valley, we compost our food waste and use single stream recycling. Our trash is sent to the World Recycling recovery facility and sorted out for reuse. And we also use a state-of-the-art solar powered trash compactor, which we are proud to say is the only one of its kind in the state of Maryland.

When it comes to our catering, we encourage our clients to use the “Green Program” that we developed, allowing them to choose the eco-friendly option wherever possible. We offer compostable plates and flatware for all of your clients—these plates and flatware require less energy during production and are made with a biodegradable material that is filled with nutrients and helps enrich the soil. We also work with local farms, cooperatives, and dairies, allowing us to offer our clients a delicious menu that uses local and sustainable ingredients.

Along with everything listed above, we also removed all high gas and oil consumption vehicles from our delivery fleet and are now using energy efficient vehicles. We recycle our used cooking oil, print on 100% post-consumer recycled paper, and help educate our clients and employees on different ways to make events eco-friendly.

Now that we have gone over what we do to be eco-friendly and reduce our carbon footprint, we will help give your tips on how to make the rest of your party or event green. Use Rouge Fine Catering at your next event and follow these tips to create a eco-friendly party.


Let’s start by covering ways to be eco-friendly before the party even starts. Sending out paper invitations is obviously a waste of paper and can easily be swapped out with evites. Whether you just send an email out, create an event on Facebook and invite your friends that ways, or create a fancy online invitation, this is a great way to start you eco-friendly party. If you want every detail of this party to have a theme and expect your invitations to have a unique and creative design, you can use different services that can help you design the perfect invitation for your party. One of these is Paperless Post.


From lighting to centerpieces, decorations can be harmful to the environment and cause a lot of waste. When planning on ways to decorate for your event, think about how to decorate in the most eco-friendly way possible.


You may assume that lighting is a tricky aspect to go green with, but really it is easy to find ways to save energy and make your venue look beautiful. If your event is in the evening, utilize as much natural light as possible. But if you know it will begin to get dark before your guests head home, then have a second option. Create a calming and unique atmosphere for your guests by lighting your event area with a bunch of 100% soy based candles. Scatter them around the room and place a few on each table, allowing for guests to be able to see and mingle peacefully.

Place candles in jars, allowing them to emit light and be less of a fire hazard and take on the appearance of a stylish lantern. Or go with a real lantern look! If you are hosting your event outside, use solar powered string lanterns the use LED bulbs. Not only can they help light up your venue, but they also add a fun and decorative look. Another outdoor options is tiki torches with plant-based fuel. These are a stylish and useful way to add some light to your party, with the added benefit of keeping mosquitoes at bay.

There are many different ways to add eco-friendly lighting to your decoration and give your venue some style. Focus on using natural light, soy candles, LED bulbs, or solar powered lighting. These options can help you save energy and add some unique style to your party.

Centerpieces and Wall Decor

Streamers, balloons, confetti, and other regular party decorations are wasteful due to the fact that they are used once and then thrown away. To decorate the venue in the most eco-friendly way possible, make sure you find or create decorations that can be reused. Depending on your party theme you can easy find decorations that you can use and reuse.

If you are having a bridal shower collect flowers from your garden and fill vases to place on each table. Fill vases with pinecones or sand and candles, and use them as centerpieces. Use fabric streamers and banners that can be reused for years to come. You can make you own banner out of fabric or eco-friendly paper that you can use the next year as well.

These decorations can give your party a beautiful and earthy feel, adding a unique feel to you event. The main point of eco-friendly decorations is to make sure they can be reused for a few years. One-time-use decorations are what make decorating for a party harmful to the environment.


When you send out your evites, request that your guests carpool or take a public form of transportation. If they live close, they could even ride their bikes or walk over to your event. Not everyone will want to do this, but if you offer prizes for those who do travel to your party in an eco-friendly way, there may be more of a chance that your guests become a little more eco-conscious.


If you choose to use a catering company for your event, choose one that can help you stick with your eco-friendly party goals. Rouge Fine Catering can offer you delicious and gourmet food that is prepared, served, and disposed of in an eco-friendly way.

Our food is locally sourced and menu uses sustainable ingredients. If you are looking to add seafood to your menu, we have just what you need. The seafood we used has been certified as sustainable by the National Aquarium in Baltimore, meaning that when you order seafood off of our menu, you will be helping with the overfishing problem that is affecting the global seafood population.

Not only do we offer eco-friendly food options, but we also can supply you with biodegradable tableware and clean up in an eco-friendly way. We try hard to make every aspect of our business are environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible. With our help and some green party planning, you can host an eco-friendly party that is stylish, offers delicious food, and helps reduce your carbon footprint!

These tips can help you throw an amazing party that doesn’t create a ton of waste. If fact, if there is leftover food afterwards, let your guests take home leftovers! They will love being able to take home our delicious food options and you won’t have to throw away a bunch of gourmet food!

Create the perfect party and help out our planet while doing it! Rouge Fine Catering can help you host the best eco-friendly party possible. To get started on planning your green party, contact Rouge today and check out our menu!

Adding A Unique Touch To Your Wedding

July 21, 2017

Weddings have become a cookie-cutter event. They all seem to feature the same things. The set up, the music, the reception, the food and desserts—the entire process seems to all be the same. It may be because of tradition or maybe it is because weddings, like graduations and other formal events, follow a guideline, as they always have and always will.

You can make you wedding more unique and memorable, even when following the traditional layout. Adding in different aspects can help you guests feel like your wedding is more personalized and not just another wedding. No matter how big or small, your wedding can be simply transformed into something special with a few simple adjustments.

At Rouge Fine Catering, we understand the importance of standing out. We know that a wedding is special, and you want your guests to remember it as much as you will. You don’t want it to be known as “just another wedding” and you certainly don’t want your guests to be unimpressed.

Don’t fret. There are ways to give your wedding celebration an added touch of fun and unique flair with a few simple steps and additions. In this blog, we will go over some of the things you can add or change about your wedding that will make it memorable without breaking the bank!

For The Couple

One thing you must remember is that the entire purpose of the wedding if to celebrate the love between you and your soon-to-be-spouse. While your guests are important and you want them to have a good time, you are the reason they all came. They came to celebrate your love and will hopefully understand if you don’t make your wedding about them.

When you make plans for your wedding, adding in small but meaningful things that represent you as a couple can create a personal touch and make your guests feel the love as the ceremony takes place.


Everyone loves hearing the stories about how you met, when you started dating, fun moments you shared, how you were proposed to, and every other little detail of your love. But what is even better is getting an outsider’s perspective.

As the guests enter, have some note cards with pens by the front. Ask your guests to write down their favorite memory of you and your love and put it in a glass bowl. You can choose to share these memories sometime during the reception or bring them home and enjoy them with your new spouse. This is a great way to remember some of the great times you had, and to get a view of your love from the outside.

If you choose to read these at the reception, it will not only celebrate your love, but it will also give your guests a taste of who you are and how your relationship is. When you read your guests memories of you both, they will feel lucky to have been a part of your love and to be a friend who witnessed a moment that would lead to this day.


Like mentioned before, everyone wants to know the details of your relationship. When it started, where you met, how the proposal happened, and more! There are ways to share the journey of your relationship without having to tell everyone every story.

Rather than naming your reception tables number, give them names that are unique to you. Give a table the name of the mountain you had your first kiss, name one the street your first apartment together was on, and name one the location you were proposed to. On each table, give your guests a mini explanation of what the name means and why it matters to your relationship. This will also be fun for your guests to go around to every table and get the full story of your love.

You could also hang pictures up all around your venue, showing images of you two together, with your friends who are now guests at your special day, and of your families. These photos will also give your guests background information about your relationship and help you share some special memories.


There are many different ways to celebrate your love during the ceremony. Sharing your love story will help the guests feel the importance of this moment even more, and will add a special touch to your wedding.

One special thing you could do is a timeline. Start with pictures of you two as infants at the beginning of the aisle, your photographs on one side, theirs on the other. With each row of seats, progress a few years, eventually getting to when you met. Then the photos can turn into each of your favorite images the two of you, and finally, at the end of the aisle you stand next to your significant other, and continue your journey. This timeline shows your lives and how they somehow got intertwined and landed you here, getting married to your love.

Another thing you could do to add a personal touch to your celebration of love is to have a friend who introduced you two, or who was around your relationship, officiate your wedding. Not only will this add a special touch, it will allow the officiate to share special moment they remember with the two of you. Your relationship started thanks to this friend, and now this friend is marrying you. It is a beautiful circle of life.

For The Guests

While the wedding is about you and your soon-to-be, you will want to make sure your guests have fun and feel like an important part of your celebration. You can add different aspects to your wedding that will make your guests feel special and enjoy your wedding more.

Personalized Note Cards

Depending on the size of your wedding, you could make your guests feel special be writing personalized cards and placing them at their seat for the reception. While this may take a while, when they find a card thanking them for coming all the way from California they will feel like an important guest at your wedding and love the personal touch.

A Guest Photographer

When you hire a wedding photographer, they mainly focus on you and your spouse. But your guests are all dressed up and looking fantastic as well! While they may get featured in a few of photos, a fun idea is to hire another photographer to take pictures of the guests only. There are many different ways to do this that can become a fun and cool way to share this moment with your friends and family.

First, think about getting a photographer with a Polaroid camera. As they take images of the guests, have the guest take the freshly printed image and write a message on the back—this could be marriage advice, a memory of the new couple, or anything like that. After the wedding, take all of these photos and create a scrapbook that you can keep forever, this is a great idea for a guest book as well and a great way to get memories and advice from your favorite people.

You could also have someone record your guests. Have them tell a story about your relationship, tell you why you two are the perfect couple, or anything else they feel like saying! These are fun to watch years down the road and your guests will love feeling like the center of attention for a second. You can share these videos with your guests as well, so everyone can watch the fun advice and memories from your wedding.

Get Them Dancing

Not everyone loves dancing, but dancing at weddings is something that everyone should do. With all the older relatives who have awesome dance moves, there is no reason for your guests to hold back their own moves.

But not everyone will want to dance unless their favorite song suddenly comes on! When you send out invitations, add a line that asks your guests to add their favorite song, and maybe mention “favorite song to dance to” so they know. Compile this list and give it to your DJ so they can play your guests favorites all night long, getting everyone on the dance floor at least once!

When your guests hear their song come on, they won’t be able to stay seated! And the more people who are on the dance floor, the more fun the wedding becomes!

You can also ask any of your musically talented guests to perform a song for your first dance. This will help Incorporate your guests into your wedding and add a fun touch with live music! If they want to perform more than one song, don’t tell them no! Everyone loves live music and this will get people up on their feet and out on the dance floor.

For All

There are aspects of your wedding that can benefit everyone! If you have an open bar at your wedding, you can help it become a little more personal by getting glasses for your guests. Getting individual glasses, whether they are fun mason jars, decorated glasses, or glasses that go with the guest’s drink of choice, will be a great way to give your guests a personal drink. They can reuse these glasses all night and keep them as a fun memory.

Your menu is also an important part of your wedding day celebration. If you pick the perfect catering menu, you and your guests will remember it. This does not just mean having delicious options, it means having options that match your wedding theme, your relationship, and adds to your love story. If you have a morning wedding, brunch options can really make your guests enjoy the beautiful morning and celebration. Or maybe you and your soon-to-be-spouse love mac n’ cheese. At Rouge Fine Catering you can find all of these options for your wedding day catering. From brunch to different mac n’ cheese options and so much more! You are sure to find just what you need to make your wedding menu memorable and meaningful!

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.

The Right Type of Catering

May 16, 2017

You just started a new job, a job that you have been working towards for months now, and you finally landed a spot in an amazing company. You are slowly learning your role, getting used to the everyday tasks, and beginning to meet people. And lucky for you, the annual corporate party will be taking place this weekend.

You have been told that these are generally fancy parties, with people dressed in gowns and tuxedos, which you think is a bit extensive for your type of business, but you go with it, because fancy parties generally mean fancy food.

You have been to many business parties at previous jobs—laidback, poorly planned, and catering that should only appear at a high school graduation. Let’s be honest, half the reason you go to the parties in the first place is for the free food.

Just recently, your sister got married. It was a beautiful wedding, a beautiful couple, but more importantly beautifully delicious catering. She hired Rouge Fine Catering to cater her wedding and they nailed it. You remember the food like it was yesterday, you can still taste the mango duck crêpe, you can smell the Venezuelan arepas.

Sure you were happy for your sister, but you were even more thrilled about the gorgeous cuisine and the immaculate service. Your sister is the type who wants only the best, and she got it. Her guests were amazed with the quality of food, the beautiful displays of the meals and desserts, and extensive bar. You remember thinking to yourself how it was amazing how the catering and food provided at a wedding could change the whole impression guest got from the wedding. And Rouge Find Catering provided something to remember.

This is the type of catering you expect at your company party. You expect only the best, gourmet catering to be at this party. But you imagine you may not get what you are hoping for. You imagine showing up to find some chain restaurant catering the elaborate party, and you begin to get disappointed, fighting the urge to not show up at all.

You picture yourself walking by the food table, scanning your choices, looking for something that resembled the catering your sister had, but nothing comes close to the quality. The look is not appealing, the smell is nonexistent, and you are sure the taste is way off as well.

And suddenly your excitement for this party, your job, and the company is smothered. But you decide to attend the party anyways, giving them a chance to prove themselves, or at least hoping to mingle with some of your new coworkers. That becomes the only reason why you decide to go, because you need friends at this new job, and a party is a great place to do so.

As you arrive, you are still thinking about the catering choice your company may have made, grumbling to yourself. But as you begin to walk toward the doors, you spot a catering van behind the building, and on the van the words Rouge Fine Catering are painted.

You knew your company would make the right decision. You never doubted their catering choices, they would always choose the best for their employees. You enter the party with a grin on your face and see the beautiful display of food. It’s going to be a great party.

Your new company made the right choice when it comes to catering. Rouge Fine Catering is a new type of catering. High-end, gourmet cuisine that looks as good as it tastes. Don’t let your company fall short in the catering selections. Suggest Rouge Fine Catering, we are sure to give your the catering your company and employees deserve.

When in Charge of Catering

May 1, 2017

It is your best friend’s wedding. You met her in elementary school, and you both have made a lot of memories ever since. You have planned your weddings together, played dress up, talked about your first boyfriends, and you were the first one she called when she got engaged.

She has asked you to be her maid of honor, and you know you will do a better job than anyone else would be able to do. And that is due to the fact that you know exactly how she wanted her wedding to turn out, you know how she has pictured it for years, telling you every detail. But now that you think about it, you realize she forgot to tell your one important detail, one detail many people don’t consider when planning their dream wedding, the food. And she has added catering to your list of things to decide upon.

Based on her taste, style, and personality, you know she will want something gourmet, delicious, and special. You definitely can’t go with barbecue, fast food Mexican, or a DIY catering, you must go bigger, better, and find something she will love and make her wedding even more special.

This is the ultimate test. The best friend test. If you know your friend, what she likes, dislikes, what she prefers, and what her fiancé is allergic to, choosing catering should be simple. You could call all the catering companies in the area and ask if they have all of her favorites, you could simply choose one and hope they have what you need. Or you could choose the best option and pick Rouge Fine Catering.

College Graduation Deserves Fine Catering

April 17, 2017

You have watched your child grow up. You have watched them as they take their first steps, ride their first bike, go on their first date, and head off to the college of their dreams. And now you will watch as they graduate from that college and start the new and exciting chapter in their life. This is an exciting time for them and for you, another milestone checked off their list.  

When people celebrate high school graduations they are generally less formal and end up with some type of build-your-own-burrito buffet catering. But a college graduation is different. This is a big moment in a person’s life that should be celebrated as such. Don’t get catering from the local favorite fast food joint, give your graduate a celebration that they deserve after slaving away for years to get a degree and begin their life.

Rouge Fine Catering is the perfect choice to celebrate the hard work and dedication your child had to make it to this point. You might be wondering why you should go all out on your child’s college graduation party. And the answer is because they deserve it. College students are generally poor, living off of noodle cups and frozen foods, only having a real meal when they come home for holidays. And they have finally made it to this point, to the point where they have been working for the last four or more years of their lives. That is why the deserve fine catering for their graduation party.

When we say fine dining, we don’t mean lobster and the best steaks, although you certainly can have that catered from Rouge. But you can also get gourmet sandwiches, paninis, and burgers if that is what your graduate desires. The difference between our catering and others is that we serve high-quality, gourmet food that looks beautiful, taste delicious, and is just what you wanted. Our menu is extensive and we work to reduce our carbon footprint and be environmentally conscious.

Only a few other times in your life will you have gourmet food in your honor, such as at your wedding, a retirement party, and possibly a 50th anniversary. College students work hard, and only a little over a half end up graduating. Be proud that your child made it, give them a celebration they will remember and wow your guests with your amazing catering.

There are not many events in life when gourmet catering is the number one food choice, but when your child makes it through some of the toughest years of their life, give them a special celebration and make sure they get the very best. Get Rouge Fine Catering and show them how proud they have made you.

Whether you are having a graduation, retirement party, engagement party, work event, or a grand opening, choose Rouge Fine Catering to give your guests the best in catering and a menu that everyone will love. Contact us today to learn more and get started on your event catering.

Rouge Fine Catering: A New Style in Catering

March 1, 2017

When you think of catering, you may think of barbecue, a build you own burrito line, chicken wings with chips and dip, or just platter of finger food that is simple and popular. Perhaps that is an ideal type of catering for a backyard bbq or a graduation party — but what about the classier get-togethers, the parties that require fancy attire and glasses of champagne? These types of parties require a more high-end catering service.
