Meet Paula, Our Events Expert

paula_icecreamTrends in catering change as fast as fashion — and our gala guru, Paula Nielsen, is here to share new ideas that you can take home. In between events, we asked Paula to share some of her event secrets.

What do you love about event planning at Bon Appétit?
The unknown.The X factor. You just never know what is going to happen.

One great tip for the host with the most?
Focus on one detail — the real reason behind the event. Dig deeper. Let that inspire you. Carry that theme throughout, and be consistent.

Where are your favorite places for inspiration?
Hardware stores and boutique window displays. Food follows fashion.

What DIY idea are you dying to implement at your next event?
An 8’x8’ peg board with little buckets of food hung with ‘s’ hooks. Delightful!
