On a daily basis, our team works tirelessly to prepare and produce events. We focus on ensuring our clients are thrilled with the result. Whether it’s an intimate family gathering or a multiple day event serving over 9,000 people, we aim to provide the highest quality food and the most professional service. For us, success is measured by the satisfaction of our clients and their guests.

So when we receive recognition and accolades from our peers, it’s an entirely different type of excitement. This is exactly what happened at this year’s Catered Arts Through Innovative Excellence (CATIE) Awards at the International Caterers Association’s Catersource conference in New Orleans. The spirit of the CATIE Awards is to recognize achievements of exemplary production at an event. The CATIE Awards have been called the Academy Awards of the Catering Industry… and this year (drum roll please), we received three!

Action Stations to Wow Your Wedding Guests

Action Stations to Wow Your Wedding Guests

Catering By Michaels

Guests have a few basic expectations when attending a wedding. They expect a nice meal, a little booze, and dancing late into the night. What they probably don’t expect? Interactive stations where guests can see our chefs in action!

We recently sat down with Stacey Combrzynski, an Event Coordinator on our team, to discuss how action stations can captivate guests at a wedding (or any event!)

Why Would Someone Want to Use a Food Station at Their Wedding?

Food stations offer an element of interactivity that’s missing from many weddings. Normally at a wedding, you come in, sit down, and talk to the people at your table. We love action stations because they get people up and moving, adding a fun and social element to the experience. 

How are Catering by Michaels’ Action Stations Different Than A buffet?

The main difference is that we push the envelope when it comes to interactive stations and are willing to try new things that will be exciting for guests. A recent example is when we used tea siphons as a way to infuse wild mushrooms into broth at a ramen action station.

Because of their dynamic nature, action stations can cater to the couple’s personalities more. We can also be more creative with action stations, so it really takes the guest experience to the next level.
