Event Management in Riverside, CA

In addition to traditional catering services, Blackburn’s Catering also offers event management to assist our customers with all aspects of their events. No matter what type of gathering you’re planning, there are many details to consider carefully and to keep track of to ensure a flawless experience for your guests, whether they are your company’s shareholders, important clients, or family and friends.

Event Planner

If you require the services of a professional event planner, we can provide one for you to guide you through every step of the planning process.

Owner and chef Bill Blackburn not only has years of experience creating delicious meals, but he also has acquired skills in creativity, organization, time management, and staffing. His adeptness and passion in this realm make him and his team an ideal choice for your next event.

Anyone who has put together a party, corporate event, or planned a wedding knows the list of things to do can become overwhelming. Our staff can help you source the best flowers, linen service, and other special touches to make your event stand out. If you’re hosting a gala or a large event, you may want to hire a valet service to make it easy for your guests to park. We can do this for you. Blackburn’s Catering also has table settings in a variety of styles to suit your event’s theme and level of formality.

For a wedding, holiday party, or banquet, you may want a live band or a DJ to entertain your guests. We know the top performers in the area and can help you choose the entertainment that is just right for your event. At an outdoor event, a tent might be desired.

If you’re conducting a corporate event, like a training or presentation, you may need audio/visual equipment to display your supporting slideshow or video. There is no detail or necessity that will get past our event planners when we are working with you.

Venue Selection

Your venue is an important aspect that can help set the tone for the entire event, so it should be chosen carefully. We can brainstorm ideas with you. We have catered and planned events at corporate offices, a car dealership, customers’ homes, banquet halls, churches, and other traditional spaces. You may want to opt for a more unusual location that has meaning for you and your guests, such as in a barn, on the beach, in a park, or in a museum. These all have their positive features and potential challenges for catering and hosting an event. We can go over these with you so you are comfortable with them, and we can prepare a backup plan, if needed, especially when it comes to outdoor events.

A venue with which we are very familiar is our own facility. We would be happy to host your event there, whether or not you use our event planning services.
