IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS
EVENT DESIGN & PRODUCTION SERVICES
While traditional catering companies only handle food, FFT does so much more, walking you through the event design and production from start to finish.
At your initial consultation meeting,we discuss your event goals and objectives. These could include wanting to secure a specific client, celebrate a company milestone, or launch a new product. We then discuss our vendor and venue recommendations based on our 40 years experience in the Chicago market.
Once we establish a vision and event direction, we will have meetings leading up to your event to discuss the details. Our services can help with:
Floor plan development: This includes how you want everything laid out in your event space, including flow and table setup.
Theme creation and mood boards: Let's map out your event theme to ensure everything matches, from the decor to menu.
Timeline and logistics: We will help you lay out the whole event from start to finish.
When the event day rolls around, we'll make sure every detail is executed perfectly. Our team will manage timeline, vendors and event flow - giving you peace of mind.
When guests start arriving, we will ensure everything is running smoothly in the background so that you can get the most from your event.
