Planning Resources

At Simply Fresh Events, we practice hospitality. When you hire us, your guests become our guests, too. We call on all our knowledge, training and experience to ensure (y)our guests a joyful and memorable event. In addition, we pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest information and trends in event design, food and food safety…information which we’re pleased to share with you.

Here are links to different kinds of resources we hope will be of use to you. For additional information, please contact one of our event planners at (240) 685-2500 or

Service Style Options

The service style that you choose has a major impact on price as well as on the atmosphere of the event. Check out the list of the different options Simply Fresh Events provides for serving food at your event.


This page is your link to some of the best practices and tricks-of-the-trade we know. Whether you are our client or simply dropping by our website, we hope you’ll find them helpful. In many cases, you’ll see that a printable worksheet accompanies the Resource so that you can insert your own information with ease. New resources will be added periodically, so please visit this page again.


At least once a week, we’ll post a brief item about something of interest to those who are planning an event. You don’t have to be hiring a caterer or event planner – you could simply be hosting family and friends for a backyard picnic or a holiday meal. Keep checking in weekly to learn something new, be inspired (we hope) and have some fun yourself.
