BEYOND THE SANDWICH PLATTER

When you think of a corporate working lunch, I am sure a sandwich buffet comes to mind...! Here at the Great Big Event kitchen, we are on a mission to ditch the classic sandwiches and provide lunches that are delicious and nutritious, and most importantly, loved by all.

Easy Food, Delivered or Catered Straight to your door! Surrey Pantry is the no-fuss kitchen of the Great Big Event.

PARTY LIKE IT’S 2020 (OR 2021)!

Missed a special occasion or milestone birthday in the last year? With the various restrictions and lockdowns which have been in place across the country over the last year, many joyous occasions were sadly downgraded to the infamous “zoom” parties, or to very small gatherings.

SECOND TIME AROUND WEDDINGS

Life does not always go the way you might predict. It could be that a spouse has passed away, or simply that you’ve fallen out of love and hence the best decision is for you to part and find happiness with someone else.

WHY A MARQUEE IS ALWAYS THE BEST PARTY VENUE?

Extremely versatile in the design, venue and set up, using a marquee to celebrate an occasion gives you the perfect blank canvas to make a celebration totally “you”.

2022: WHAT A BLAST

PLANNING THIS SEASON'S BEST CHRISTMAS PARTY!

Dare we mention the word Christmas yet? If you’re hoping to have a Christmas party this year, however big or small, we would say you need to start talking about it and planning needs to start! Whether you’re looking to host a Christmas dinner party, a festive afternoon tea, or a drinks and canape soiree, now’s the time get into the holiday spirit and start organising it.

THEMED PARTY INSPIRATION

As well as the joy they bring, themed parties are a great way of piecing together all the elements of a party. With the outfits matching the venue décor, music, invitations and food, with a bit of thought and creativity, the events can be quite the showpiece! Far from a child’s themed party, when done well, they are sophisticated and glamorous.
