Boulevard’s youngest sons travel to Athens to tell our story…

Earlier this month (February) Mark and Dan travelled to one of the world’s most beautiful cities to join EPCAS (European Caterers Association) for two days of food, culture and learning in Athens, Greece. The Boulevard brothers were asked to travel to the EPCAS Winter Assembly to share the story of our 30 year family business as part of the association’s ‘Future on stage’ series, where growing companies share their passion and success stories.

Meet our amazing new events intern from across the pond – Jenna O’Grady!

Meet our amazing new events intern from across the pond – Jenna O’Grady!

My passion finally became reality…

Hi, I’m Jenna! I’m the brave American who decided to give up her finance job in New York City to pursue her dreams of event planning across the pond. The Event Academy is an incredible private institute in London that I found one day while googling ‘how to follow your dreams of becoming an event planner UK’. I sent an enquiry and literally within ten minutes, I received an email saying, ‘the head of admissions is in NYC right now, can you meet up with her?’ That’s when I knew fate was on my side and I had no choice but to jump onto this opportunity. I had two months to prepare for my wonderful new journey. Read More…

Meet our head Chef Rhiannon

Looking back on another special year for our family business, one in which we achieved things that we could only dream of when it all began in 1989. Notably being highly commended for caterer of the year by @eventmag and critics choice @squaremealvande in the canapé cup.

Getting “immersive” with ILEA

Getting “immersive” with ILEA

The theme?
‘Shipwrecked on a cannibal island’
“Make it immersive they said”

Well if grabbing a large spoon and diving head first into a shipwreck of desserts isn’t immersive, we must’ve misunderstood the brief. Oh yes, that is an edible beach.

The Caterer’s role on your wedding day – what is ‘going the extra mile’?

The Caterer’s role on your wedding day – what is ‘going the extra mile’?

As Directors of a catering company we have supplied hundreds of weddings and we’ve attended quite a few as well, in fact once or twice we’ve even supplied and attended the same wedding. In our experience, one thing that is universally apparent is that very few people realise just how much the caterer actually does.

Dance-offs, giant desserts and a banana split…

Dance-offs, giant desserts and a banana split…

As birthday parties go, this one was up there! All the suppliers went to town with their contributions and ISES members showed up in force to wish Happy Birthday to the mother hen. In fairness you can hardly fail to throw a party in The Loft, one of EggLDN’s many versatile event spaces (@EggEventsLondon www.egglondon.co.uk/corporate). There’s a reason this venue has won multiple Cool Venue awards. We’ve known it for ages but everyone else is starting to find out just how special EggLDN is as a corporate event space. A special mention to the Off To Work team who had a strong presence on the dance floor and also provided some of their fabulous waiting staff to serve our food. As always they were switched on, proactive and full of smiles. Fat Unicorn (what a name by the way) were making dreams come true, cropping us into pictures with our childhood idols using their “green thing.” Obviously the Boulevard team had a snap with S-Club 7, then Mark spent the rest of the night trying to dance like Bradley, however Lowell Cabual of Classico Productions stole the show on that front, I digress… Read More…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISES, 15 TODAY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISES, 15 TODAY!

Sadly we missed out on the shenanigans at Gilgamesh last month but never mind because we are catering for the highly anticipated ISES 15th birthday tonight and we plan on making it extra special.

Not only will we be transforming our triumphant canapé cup 2015 entry (00Heaven) into a giant birthday cake, we will be rolling out 2014s winner (The Hunter’s Gathering) and two of the contenders for this year’s entry will be circulating the room as well. All feedback is welcome and appreciated as we would love to beat our good friends over at Eden to the hat-trick in 2016. Read More…

#ISESHalloween – Simply a night to remember.

#ISESHalloween – Simply a night to remember.

The ISES Halloween party obviously didn’t fail to deliver, how could it? With so many amazing suppliers throwing their skills into the mix! The Bloomsbury Ballroom, one of London’s most exquisite corporate events venues, played host, so quite naturally Boulevard was put in charge of the catering, and we really went to town with a whole host of themed creations. Check out the hashtag #ISESHalloween for some of the highlights. Jackie at Partridge Events also did a fabulous job of planning the whole bash, another talented eventprof who really knows her craft and did an exceptional job. Also involved were the vibrant chaps from Exquisite Cocktails offering ‘exactly what it says on the tin’ and serving, quite literally… Exquisite Cocktails. While London Hair and Beauty had the whole party looking Ghoulgeous! Not to mention the WamBam team, led by lady Alex herself, who brought a spectacle of cabaret entertainment to the proverbial table. With that ‘mash-up’ of talent, it was always going to be an absolute home run of an event, and we simply cannot wait for next year.
