Flourtown Country Club is proud to announce their new exclusive partnership with Seedling and Sage Catering, a modern farm to table caterer.
“Seedling and Sage is thrilled to partner with Flourtown Country Club. We are taking the traditional country club event model and enhancing it by designing a fully customizable farm to table concept. This will be a first in the Philadelphia country club arena,”said Melissa McDevitt, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Seedling and Sage.
The beautifully appointed stone building is home to vintage-chic event space accommodating 50-350 guests.
McDevitt goes on to explain that their goal at Flourtown will be to redefine the ‘country club’ wedding perception by creating a new image that will attract a broader scope of clientele, while still welcoming back previous clients. In addition to plated events, Seedling and Sage also offers food stations, family style meals, and cocktail style events.
“We have worked with industry leaders to identify the current and the future event trends. ‘Traditional’ is not what the new generation is looking for,” said Laura Kidwell, the other Managing Partner and Founder of Seedling and Sage.
Kidwell explains that many of Seedling and Sage’s couples are booking non-traditional event venues where they have the ability to customize each detail of their special day from menus to table settings to outdoor tenting with market lights, and more. Often these venues are outdoors on farms and arboretums, referred to as ballrooms without walls. Many times, if parents are involved in the planning, their preference is a more stable environment with fixed pricing.
The partnership with Flourtown Country Club represents the best of both worlds. With both indoor and outdoor space, fixed package pricing, but also countless customizable details, the hope is that this property will be a great solution to the new shift in the industry giving millennials the opportunity for personalized DIY components, with the ease their parents are looking for.
“Our culinary team and event design team meet with each client to understand their needs, and then create customized menus to meet their vision and their budget,” says Kidwell.
Seedling and Sage Catering is a proud, trusted partner of many venues in the Philadelphia region. They are emerging as an industry leader as they continually prove their core competency of operating and executing events while maintaining the integrity of the venue, exceeding client expectations, and assuring overall profitability.Photo Cred: Hitched Productions by Tyler Boye PhotographyThe studio’s Facebook is Hitched Productions and Instagram is @hitchedbytbp.
