“May I offer you…”

★ ★ ☆ ★ ★

May I share with you one of the distinguishing characteristics of an Affairs to Remember Caterers-catered special event?

Thank you.

When the recipient of passed hors d’oeuvres or drinks or when visiting a food station, you will hear the Affairs to Remember team member begin their engagement with you by saying, “May I offer you…”, followed by the name of the dish or beverage that’s being offered. Once a guest has accepted, you’ll hear an enthusiastic, “Enjoy!”

Manners are manners, hands down. But having grown up mostly in the South and having traveled to or lived in many other parts of the country, I continue to feel that manners are most emphasized, perhaps most valued, in the South. But not in rush hour traffic, of course.

I’m not saying that folks are not polite and hospitable in other parts of the country; I’m just saying that the moniker “Southern Hospitality” was not earned merely by chance. In the end, a proper greeting, no matter who is serving a guest, is all about being polite and hospitable.

If you will be featuring Southern cuisine at your special event, be sure to ask your catering consultant about Affairs to Remember’s Fox-exclusive menu items that speak to the Fox Theatre being at the epicenter of the New South, which is actually one of the elements of the Fox Food Story.

Imagine having your guests greeted by a smiling waiter with a peach “Peachtree Street Bellini” served in a champagne flute and garnished with a basil-wrapped raspberry. Guests have told us that they’re delicious!

For a wholly Southern passed hors d’oeuvre, there’s nothing that compares to our pimento cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped pickled okra poppers! They’re as flavorful as they sound! Oh, and the pimento cheese—just as any true Southerner cook would do—is house-made.

So, if you’d like some Southern deliciousness served with a generous helping of Southern hospitality, we’ve got you covered.
