In case you haven’t heard, the Wings of Eagles Discover Center in Big Flats, NY is hosting a Gala event on October 11, 2014, and we’re so excited about it! The theme of our full day of fun is Mission to Mars, and the evening is sure to spectacular.

Perhaps you’ve been considering attending the Gala, but you’re just not sure. In that case, we thought we’d come up with three good reasons why you should definitely plan to attend.

Reason #1: You deserve a night out without the kids!

Our Family Fun Day is centered on the kids and encouraging them to learn more about Mars and the space program, but the evening Gala is just for you, the grownups! How often do you get a chance to get out for an evening of fun? This is an excellent opportunity to do just that, and you’ll be supporting STEM educational programs for the Wings of Eagles Discover Center as well. Speaking of that…

Reason #2: You’ll participate in an important fundraising event!

The proceeds from ticket sales for our Gala event will go to help fund STEM based youth educational programs right here at the Wings of Eagles. It’s important to preserve our nation’s history, and especially when it comes to space travel and discovery. We want to ignite a passion for adventure and science within our youth, and that’s what our educational programs are all about. Your support is essential in ensuring that they have an opportunity to keep learning and growing in their love for everything that lies beyond our planet.

Reason #3: The meal, provided by Sweet-n-Saucy is sure to be wonderful!

Of course, there are many more reasons you should attend, such as the beer and wine tasting from local vendors and the music, which will be provided by Joe Cavallaro and his Dixieland Jazz Band. We’ll receive some valuable information from Mars Research Scientist, Shoshanna Cole from Cornell University as well.

Let Sweet-N-Saucy Help You Plan The Perfect Bridal Shower

ID-10093013

Planning a bridal shower for a friend or a close family member can be so much fun. A bridal shower is a time for the bride to celebrate her engagement and marriage with the people she loves the most. Even if she’s the most organized bride in the history of wedding planning, chances are that she’ll welcome an opportunity to enjoy an evening out with her close friends and family members, so it’s important to make her bridal shower a wonderful time that she’ll never forget.

The Theme

The bridal shower will be absolutely perfect if it incorporates some of the things the bride loves the most. While many showers adopt a similar theme to the one that the wedding will have, why not think a little bit outside the box as you’re planning this important party? Choose a theme that goes along with some of the things the bride really likes to do. Perhaps she’s really into scrapbooking, and doing other types of arts and crafts. Why not add bits and pieces of this hobby and create a crafty bridal shower theme? You can incorporate games and other fun activities that are crafty, and she’ll appreciate the fact that you really thought about her interests.

Fancy or Laid Back?

Once you have a theme in mind, what type of shower would the bride prefer? Does she seem to be someone who likes tea and cookies with cloth napkins? Or is she more of a laid back person who enjoys comfort food and a delicious piece of cake for dessert? Either way, you’ll want to incorporate her own personal style into your planning.

Here at Sweet-N-Saucy, one of the events we love catering the most is bridal showers. We love working with friends and family members who are planning this special day for someone they really care about. The food is one of the most important elements to any party, and it’s vital for it to be absolutely perfect. If you’re planning an upcoming bridal shower, and you’re looking for an outstanding Elmira/Big Flats catering service, we would love to talk with you. We’ll make sure every detail is in place, and you’ll be delighted with the outcome.

Planning any event takes a lot of time and energy. First you have to secure the venue, then you have to think about the decorations, and try to come up with a theme for your event. Once you have made those decisions, you have to think about the guest list, the invitations, and of course, the food.

No matter what size your event will be, the one element that every attender is going to remember is the quality of the food you serve.

Sweet-N-Saucy Is A Great Place For Birthday Parties – Anywhere In The Elmira Area!

ID-100106337

Winter is certainly upon us, and with temperatures and wind chills dipping well below zero at times, we hope you and your family are staying nice and warm!

Winter can be a tough season for kids. They long to go out and play in the snow, but because of the low temperatures, it’s not always safe to send them out – even if they’re dressed in their warmest clothes and snowsuits. For many families, planning birthday parties during the winter months, or taking their kids to their friends’ parties are great ways to beat those cold weather blues. If you or someone you love has a birthday coming up soon, and you’re in the Elmira, Horseheads, Corning, or Big Flats area we would love to help you celebrate their special day in style!

Let Us Handle The Work

Perhaps in your family birthday parties have always been pretty much the same. You bake a cake, you order a few pizzas, and you invite your kids’ friends to come over for a few hours for some fun. Having a birthday party sure is an awful lot of hard work, isn’t it? Not only does it take a lot of time to plan and pull of a party, but people don’t always like to stick around to help with the job of cleaning up afterwards, do they? In fact, sometimes your entire family can disappear, leaving you to deal with the mess!

A Sweet Celebration

When you choose Sweet-N-Saucy and the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center for your next birthday party, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what you find. We’ll prepare a delicious menu that the kids at the party are going to just love. You’ll be able to get your fill too, because you won’t have to worry about running around after them, picking up the mess. Also, there’s nothing like a Sweet-N-Saucy birthday cake to help you celebrate that special day the right way.

cakeThe Wings of Eagles Discovery Center is a great place for birthday parties too, because the center itself comes with built-in entertainment for the kids – the airplanes! They just love looking at the amazing airplanes, and you’ll love that they’re entertained from beginning to the end.

Recently, we had the opportunity to host a birthday party here, and a few special pals came along for the festivities (and the cake!)

cookie characters

The kids had a blast! Of course, when it’s all over, there’s nothing for you to do except…go home! That’s right! We’ll happily clean up the mess, and you’re free to enjoy the rest of your child’s birthday in relaxation.

We would love to talk to you about how we can help make your kids’ birthdays extra special this year. For more information, or to start planning your next big party, contact us today!

New Year, New You? Sweet-N-Saucy Is A Healthy Option

ID-100207932

Now that January has officially started, many people have started looking in the mirror, or stepping on their scales to find that they overdid it a little bit during the holidays.

January is notorious for being the month when everyone realizes they should have exercised a bit more restraint when they were eating during the many Christmas parties they attended. Once January first hits, they decide that it’s time to do something about all the weight they gained, and they set out on a fitness program that they’re sure will help them look better and feel great by the time spring comes around.

The problem is that too many of us make these resolutions, and we stick to them for a few months. However, by the time March comes, we’ve already fallen off the wagon. How can you avoid that this year? There are a few ways.

Enlist the Help of a Friend

Chances are, you know someone else who would like to drop a few pounds during the coming year, too. Talk to that person about being weight loss buddies. Check in with each other every day. Share your goals with each other, and make a commitment to hold each other to them. Weight loss is always easier when you know you’re not in it by yourself.

Talk with a Nutritionist

It’s always a good idea to get a professional’s opinion when it comes to losing weight. You might be eating the wrong type of foods that you don’t even realize are bad for you. A nutritionist can give you a solid meal plan, and direction as far as how many calories you should strive for every day. You might be amazed at the types of foods your nutritionist suggests.

Use Caution When Eating Out

Where most of us have a difficult time is in visiting restaurants. Many restaurants cook with too much grease, and their servings are so big, you feel guilty if you don’t eat all of it. Still, we love to eat out because we enjoy the social atmosphere. Don’t give up on going out to eat completely. Sweet-N-Saucy is an excellent option because our menu has a variety of healthy choices for you if you are trying to watch what you eat. We have a lot of salads and wraps that will satisfy some of those cravings, while keeping the scale at bay.

If you’ve made a goal to lose some weight this year, good for you! We’d love to help you reach that goal, and it’s our pleasure to offer you a wonderful, healthy dining experience where you can still enjoy a delicious lunch out with your friends, without the guilt. Contact us for more information!

Merry Christmas From Sweet-N-Saucy!

ID-10011053

This has been a wonderful Christmas season, and here at Sweet-N-Saucy in Big Flats, NY, we’ve enjoyed a very busy, yet very blessed holiday season!

Today is Christmas Eve, which is the day when most people are either doing one of two things: Some of them are sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying some time with their close friends and families. Others are running out to purchase some of those gifts they forgot about, or that they’ve put off buying. Either way, tomorrow is Christmas, and you’ll be able to give a big sigh of relief that all of your holiday bustling is over.

We have been so blessed this year, because we have enjoyed a wonderful, prosperous year in our new location, here at the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center. It’s been a bit crazy at times, that’s for sure! However, there’s nothing that we enjoy more than helping you, our customers, get ready to celebrate your own holidays with the people you love the most. If you have received a cookie tray, if you’ve used our catering services for a Christmas party, or if you’ve simply stopped by to enjoy a delicious lunch, along with a warm cup of soup during your shopping sprees, we would like to say thank you. You are the reason we love what we do, and you’re the reason we’ll continue to provide excellent food and catering services to the people of the Twin Tiers during the coming years.

Remember, if you’ve ordered some last-minute cookies, desserts or other delicious treats, we’re open today until 11 for you to pick everything up. Stop in and see us!

We’re excited to be spending tomorrow enjoying the day with our families, and we can’t wait for the opportunity to serve you, our valued customers, once again in the New Year. Be sure to contact us with any requests for your New Year’s Eve party!

From everyone here at Sweet-N-Saucy, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Don’t Put Off Hiring A Caterer For Your New Year’s Party

ID-10036991

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only a few days away, isn’t it? It sure does seem like the holidays seem to fly by faster and faster every year. Hopefully you have most of your shopping done, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy Christmas parties and other holiday celebrations with your friends and family members. 

However, you won’t want to sit back and relax for too long. Many people wait until just after Christmas before they even think about what they’re going to do to celebrate New Year’s Eve. What about you? Are your plans in place? Do you always have a terrific New Year’s Eve party? Maybe a big party on the last night of the year has become a tradition for you, or maybe it’s a tradition you’d like to begin. Either way, it’s the perfect night of the year to get together with family and friends to celebrate your accomplishments during the past year, as well as to talk about what the year ahead has in store for you. 

You might have seen our post on what can happen when you fail to make adequate catering plans during a Christmas party. Without a doubt, New Year’s Eve is the biggest night of celebrations we see all year long. It makes sense to “do it up” right, and only work with the best catering company so you can avoid any disasters like we described in that disastrous blog post

What are your New Year’s Eve catering needs? Maybe you have a meal that you make for your family every year, but you’re not really good at baking. We’d love to supply you with a few of our incredible cookie trays, or even bake some pies or a cake for your family to enjoy. Or, perhaps you’re planning a big party, and you’re inviting lots of people you know from work. Whether it’s an intimate get together in your home, or you’re renting out a local hall to have your party, Sweet-N-Saucy in Big Flats, NY is available to take care of all of your catering needs. 

Once you visit our website, you’ll see that we have a great selection of meals to choose from, with just about anything you can imagine. You can browse our full catering menu to see what we have to offer. As far as service goes, you’ll get a personalized catering plan that designed for your specific needs. 

2013 has been a great year for us, here at Sweet-N-Saucy. We’ve moved into our new location at the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center, and our business has grown. We’d love to have the opportunity to celebrate the end of a great year with you and your family, while we look forward to an even greater year in 2014.

Please Support Small Businesses During The Holidays

ID-100122506

It’s the holidays, and with Christmas right around the corner, shoppers are bustling around, trying to get everything they’ll need for the big day. Everyone is doing their last minute party-planning, and here at Sweet-N-Saucy, we’re busier than ever, working on fulfilling all of our customers’ wish lists for their holiday parties.

As you’re shopping, whether it’s the stores you choose to visit, or the restaurants where you choose to have your lunch, we’d like you to remember how important it is to support small businesses in the Horseheads and Big Flats area. Small businesses are the heartbeat of our community, and they help to keep us growing.

When you support small businesses, you’re keeping your hard earned money right here, within our very own community. When small businesses grow, the economy where we live grows too. That is so important.

Of course, there’s also something to be said about what you get when you visit a small business like Sweet-N-Saucy during the holidays, too. If you’ve gone out for a Christmas lunch at one of the surrounding chain restaurants recently, you probably weren’t very happy with your experience. At many of them, the food certainly looks better (and bigger!) in the pictures than it does when it’s actually delivered to your table. You may have also gotten the sense that the service at some of these places isn’t exactly spectacular.

Things are very different, here at Sweet-N-Saucy.

When you pay us a visit, whether you’re out shopping, you want to catch a quick lunch with a colleague, you’ll be treated like a friend from the moment you walk through our door, here at the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center. You’ll receive prompt attention, and once you take a glance at our huge lunch menu, well, you’ll probably take a while to decide what you’d like to have. However, once you get your meal, you’ll be impressed from beginning to end.

Be sure to stop in soon and try one of our delicious hot soups, which are perfect on these cold, winter days. If you’re planning a party and you haven’t found anyone to handle the food, we’d love to help you with that too. Our catering service is out of this world, and you’ll be so happy you choose a small business to handle your party rather than a business who isn’t as focused on your happiness.

Supporting small businesses this time of year is so important. Why not stop in and give Sweet-N-Saucy a try? We’re eager to see you, and you’ll be eager to come back for more.

For more information on all of our services, contact us today!

Our Cookie Selection Can Make Your Christmas Extra Special

ID-10067786

Everyone loves the holidays. No matter which one you celebrate, this time of year is really special for almost every family. What do your holiday preparations consist of? For most of us, it’s trimming the tree, wrapping presents and making baked goods to share with friends and family.

For many people, it’s making Christmas cookies that takes the most time. It would be one thing if you could just pick a kind that you really like (like peanut butter or chocolate chip) and just spend a Saturday making a big batch of those. However, as you know, there’s a lot more that goes into Christmas cookies than just making one big batch of the same kind.

How many weekends this month will you spend looking up recipes, purchasing the ingredients, putting everything together only to realize you forgot something essential, running back to the store, throwing a batch out because the kids distracted you and your burned some…you get the idea.

Baking cookies can be a real hassle, but everyone loves them. Whether you want to be sure your cookie jar is stocked for the holidays, you’re participating in a cookie exchange, or you’re having a Christmas party, you have to have them.

But you don’t have to bake them.

Sweet-N-Saucy in Big Flats, NY has an incredible cookie selection that you purchase to complete your holiday baking, all at once. Wouldn’t that be fantastic? Even if you usually just go to the grocery store and buy some of their Christmas cookies, you know it’s not the same as when you have some that are homemade, and baked with love. That’s what you get when you choose one of our cookie trays.

Also, it doesn’t matter where you live in the Twin Tiers. We have customers who come to us from all over – Corning, Painted Post, Elmira, Horseheads and all over the area. We’re located right in Big Flats, in the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center. So, we’re easily accessible for you too.

Wouldn’t it be nice to spend your weekends enjoying your friends and family this year, instead of being stuck inside baking all day long? When you pick up a few cookie trays from Sweet-N-Saucy, that’s exactly what you’ll be able to do. Contact us today so we can help you make your Christmas cookie selection!

‘Twas The Night Of A Disastrous Holiday Party

ID-100165510

You know the ones we’re talking about. You’ve probably been to a few disastrous holiday parties, yourself. Maybe you’ve even hosted some of them.

You spend weeks planning everything out. You have the perfect music selected, and you talked to everyone you know about who to use for your holiday catering company. The problem is, everyone had a different suggestion. That meant you just went with your gut instincts, and you picked a company that you hoped would do a good job. After all, if they’re in business, they must be a good company right?

However, as soon as the catering company arrived with the food, you started to realize you had made a big, BIG mistake.

First of all, the hot food you ordered wasn’t hot at all. In fact, it looked like it had been sitting around in a refrigerator for a couple of days, at the least. Then, of course, you remember how your meeting with the owner of the catering company went, and you’re really not all that surprised. You kick yourself for not getting tipped off during your meeting because the owner wasn’t very attentive to your needs. They didn’t have a big selection to choose from either, but you were in such a hurry to get going on the other aspects of your party planning, you didn’t think too much about it at the time.

Oh…and let’s not even discuss the dessert tray you ordered. The dessert tray you wanted was supposed to be the centerpiece of the table you set up. It was supposed to be beautiful and captivating. Instead…they forgot it!

To say the least, your party didn’t go very well. In fact, you were quite embarrassed to have even had the party in the first place, and it’s got you having second thoughts about your parties in the future.

Sound familiar?

When you choose Sweet-N-Saucy in Big Flats, NY, you won’t ever have to have any of these concerns. In fact, we’ll impress you from the first time we sit down to talk with you. You’ll love how attentive we are to whatever your needs might be. You’ll also be impressed when we arrive with your order because the food will not only be hot, but it will be fresh and delicious. You’ll have all the desserts you want, including fresh baked pies, cookies, and other treats.

This year, when you’re planning your Christmas party, don’t go with a catering company that has let others (or even you!) down in the past. We’ll take care of every last detail, which will leave you to simply enjoy your guests, and yourself.

If you’re looking for a holiday caterer for your upcoming Christmas party, you’ve come to the right place. Contact us, and we’ll make sure this party is the best one you’ve ever had.
