–The holiday season is always a busy time and one of the reasons is that it’s also the most popular time of year for wedding proposals. “In fact,” said Leon Castillo, co-owner of Popolo Catering, “Most catering businesses have already booked close to half of their weddings for the upcoming year by now.”
What better way to celebrate the holidays, an engagement party, or both, than with a catered dinner? This holiday season, the San Luis Obispo caterer is offering three dinner choices:
- Aged Prime Rib Barbecued over Red Oak, served with Au Jus and Horseradish, honey glazed carrots, roasted garlic mashed potatoes with caramelized onions and salad of butter lettuce topped with pear, gorgonzola, candied walnuts, and champagne vinaigrette — $32 per person
- Crown Roast Pork Loin stuffed with dry fruit compote and finished with a rum butter glaze. The meal includes a steamed medley of broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower with confetti wild rice pilaf. The salad is of marinated golden beets, toasted pumpkin seeds, and feta cheese — $28 per person
- Grilled Salmon served with fresh steamed asparagus, orzo pilaf, and a butter lettuce salad topped with Granny Smith apples, candied walnuts, and buttermilk dressing — $26 per person
The minimum order is for 15 people, so there is plenty of food for the engaged couple and their friends and family, or for any other holiday gathering.
“October through February is the busiest time for booking weddings,” said Castillo, “with January and February being the months when the most weddings are booked.” All of the celebrations from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day seem to bring out the best romantic feelings.
According to WeddingWire online, the most popular days for marriage proposals are, in order of popularity:
- Christmas Day
- Valentines Day
- Christmas Eve
- New Year’s Day
- New Year’s Eve
- December 23
- Two Saturdays before Christmas Eve
The newly engaged couple begins planning their wedding soon after the proposal, and bookings for catering, wedding venues and all the other amenities for the big day start booking up very quickly.
“We are always excited to be part of anyone’s special day,” said Castillo “and we look forward to hearing about all of the accepted marriage proposals that will happen on New Year’s Eve.” Popolo Catering is also catering the “Roaring 20s New Year’s Eve Bash” at the Courtyard Marriot in San Luis Obispo.
