Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2022…Planning!

Your St. Patrick’s Day 2022 preparations have most likely already begun. And if not, what are you waiting for?

As you know, you do not have to be Irish to celebrate.  You only need to enjoy some spirits and some Irish delicacies with friends, family…and strangers! This is why it is has become such a popular event in many restaurants, country clubs and other event spaces.

In our area, there are countless local businesses that offer a special menu and complimentary drinks in honor of  the holiday. Whether you are temporarily altering your menu or simply want to decorate, there are some easy ways to join in on the fun.

St. Patrick’s Day Party Linen Rentals

When thinking about St. Patrick’s Day, you may immediately think of Kelly Green. And we get it. It’s a beautiful color that certainly goes with an Irish theme. However, you can always choose a green that works better with your day-to-day decor.

Bergen Linen offers a few shades of green and gold that may suit your establishment a bit better. Questions about our selections? Please feel free to call (800) 789-8115 or email info@bergenlinen.com. A team member would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

If you aren’t ready to fully commit to green party table linen, then you may want to only add a few hints of green. Consider festive napkins, overlays, and runners. And yes, we offer those as well!

Specialty linens such as seasonal colors are first-come, first-served. It’s important to review your anticipated guest count and decide what lines you may need. Then, give us a call so you can have your pick.  For a little inspiration, take  a look at our Pinterest page. We pulled together some fun ideas for various holidays including the spring season.

Valentine’s Day 2022 Menu

Valentine’s Day 2022 

What is on your Valentine’s Day 2022 menu?  With any holiday, you probably look for new ways to work in fun, seasonal menu ideas – including cocktails (and mocktails).

While some you may wish to pass on (sorry, green bagel!), Valentine’s Day can easily be represented minus all the food coloring.

Many restaurants choose  prix fixe holiday menus.  Are these entrees your favorites? Best-sellers? Romance-inspired? Need a little inspiration yourself? Speak with your team and some trusted clients.  Many will be happy to share some thoughts on what may be date night hits.

During the month of February, you may want to incorporate some special ingredients to spice things up as well.

Natural Aphrodisiacs

  • Honey
  • Avocados
  • Pine Nuts
  • Chocolate
  • Chili Peppers

The Color of Valentine’s Day 2022

  • Cherries
  • Cranberries
  • Strawberries
  • Pomegranate
  • Red Grapefruit

Besides being delicious, all these foods have something in common as well.  They provide wonderful sources of vitamins, anti-oxidants or fiber. See you can have it all!

If you are not a fan of a holiday  menu make-over, you should at least consider a signature cocktail or dessert. Something special that your waitstaff can chat about. After all, it’s a special night out for couples. And we all need a little special in our lives – especially these last several months.
