Well its been a little while......
The hardest part of being a small independent family business in South Wales, or anywhere in fact, is finding the time to sit down and actually write about what your business has been up to. It's easy to put it all up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and so on, but finding the time to do it on your website, now thats more challenging.
The fact I haven't been adding to my blog recently, can only tell me one thing, I've been busy! Well, I've been busy but also had lots of time with my family and getting lots of quality time with them, and this was one of my reasons for starting this adventure in the first place.
My 9 pictures above only tell a small part of what I have been up to since August.
I've catered for 3 weddings, numerous afternoon teas, buffets and canapé events for corporate clients, afternoon tea boxes, plenty of dinner parties and most important of all, got my reputation well and truly out there.
I've celebrated 1 year in business, I've seen growth of the business, with enquiries coming in on a daily basis. Facebook bookings have been staggering, and I have enquires on there daily. This tells me all the effort I am putting into my business page is paying off. Over 1300 likes is nothing short of amazing at this stage. I can't thank all my friends, family, clients and followers enough for all they have done for me.
Some quick mentions of events we have done, and also family events, cause these are just as important!!!
Weddings of Sarah & Joel, Chloe & Richard, Sarah & Craig
Corporate clients Eurocaps, SA Global, First Choice Housing Association, Rhondda Housing Association & Torfaen Leisure Trust to name but a few.
My never ending list of private clients, Emma Watts & her #emmawattsfordinner food group, Joanne Stephens & the Quarry's, I'm their official birthday caterer!!!
Dinner parties for Joelle Ellery & her wonderful family, Michelle Davies and the 15 besties Christmas dinner party and Lucy Perkins & friends at Felin Newydd Countrypad house.
The surprise 50th birthday party for my great family friend, Russ Daleman.
The amazing event that I've recently done for the People's Postcode Lottery. 600 winners, over 3000 canapés, a team of 10, biggest event so far, but I'm confident we will be doing bigger soon enough!!
Most importantly, the amazing things I've done with my family.
My eldest daughter getting involved with my Coventry City, Sky Blue Army love affair. Travelling many, many miles with me to watch them play. Spending more time seeing Charley & Ella grow up, this has been magical and we've been making so many memories.
Spending Christmas in Spain with 16 family members and friends, an absolute blast!!!
Celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary weekend, by doing the 3000 canapés event!!! Lucy, my wife, never one to shy away from working for me and helping me build the business, THANK YOU
I look forward to showing you more and more of just what FOUR SEASONS CATERING are all about.
Thank you for your amazing support throughout the past year.
