Valentine ’s Day is fast approaching and come the 14th February couples up and down the country will be in search of the perfect venue to have a romantic meal for 2. Competition is fierce for restaurants at this time of year and you can guarantee your competitors are gearing up and getting ready to make their business stand out from the crowd.
We have put together some tips on key areas to focus on when preparing your restaurant for Valentine’s Day.
Champagne is guaranteed to be a firm favourite so ensure your champagne flutes are fully stocked. If you want to serve your finest bubbly in something with an unusual twist, these champagne saucers feature an elegant vintage shape reminiscent of the fashionable 20’s.
Ice buckets are the perfect accompaniment to champagne keeping your bottles chilled and stands will allow you to present buckets at individual tables adding a tasteful touch.
Not only is it important for your business to look good with fresh table linen, it’s also imperative for your food to look good too. Our extensive range of crockery will allow you to present your food in any number of ways including crisp white round plates that provide the perfect base for vibrant sauces, or alternatively if you would like to go for a more rustic look we have a range of wooden boards made from solid Acacia wood and wire baskets for home made chunky chips.
Ambiance is very important and can be easily transformed with a few candles. We stock a great selection including tealights with an 8 hour life, or a pillar style to place on your candle stands. Whatever you are looking for we have something to help you set the perfect mood for your customers’ romantic evening.
Promoting your offers in the right way is key, pavement boards will attract walk in bookings and presenting specials will encourage people to order specific dishes and deals. Our range covers all types from pavement and wall, to table and snap frames. Get creative with coloured markers and experiment with different designs to make your promotions stand out.
A few extra touches will make your customers’ night that little bit more special. Nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like flowers. Flowers can be a really cost effective way to add instant colour to a room, enhancing the ambiance and completing the romantic decor. Our white vases are not only designed to match your crockery ranges, but they also provide the perfect white canvas to make the flowers stand out.
We are currently running a great promotion, all you have to do is enter voucher code LOVE15 at the basket page before 14/02/2015 to receive 10% off Crockery, Cutlery, Glassware and Bar Supplies.
