Happy May from Talk of the Town Catering & Special Events!
It’s full-on Wedding/Graduation season here at Talk of the Town Catering & Special Events! Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to fill our books with events that range from intimate to grand. We really do enjoy this very busy time and look at each event as an opportunity to showcase our very best while learning something new – we often find that our own clients have some incredible ideas that really inspire us! Speaking of inspirations, we took our team on a field trip about which you can read more below. The beautiful Meltzer/Lauber Wedding that took place at Roswell Founders Hall is featured here! Also, we were honored to cater a very special and exotic event for the fabulous Cottage School. And, in the spirit of sharing, I have chosen to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you more fully, which you can read about here, as well. Please read and enjoy and we wish you the best for this warm and happy season!

Visits Rockstar Farms
Many caterers offer clients options of locally-sourced, organic food for their events. We proudly do so at Talk of the Town, but take it to another level. We actually educate our staff about our sources so that our clients are not only getting the best ingredients, but can rely on our culinary staff to be a knowledgeable source of information about their event’s menu and its sources. To this end, we happily took our staff on a tour and educational outing to Rockstar Farms.
Here we spent time exploring the seven acres of chemical-free gardens and orchard on the farm. We tasted “better than organic” produce and got to pal-around with some of the loving livestock. We are proud to bring you the very best and create strong relationships with our farm sources so that your event’s cuisine is its very best.
to Benefit the Cottage School!
Talk of the Town was so proud be a sponsor of an exotic cruise-themed event – “Glitter Under the Stars” – to benefit the wonderful Cottage School on April 14th. The Cottage School’s mission is “building a sense of self for students with special learning needs through academic and experiential programming. The Cottage School prepares individuals for fulfillment of their true potential as confident, productive, and independent adults.”
The Glitter Under the Stars Event was an around-the-world event that featured Ports of Call, including Casablanca, Cannes, Hong Kong, and more. This event helps fund the school’s tuition assistance program and we thank the Cottage School for inviting us to be part of such a wonderful event and organization.
