Summertime Gatherings Go Beyond Hamburgers & Hotdogs

7/14/2015 |


Summer is the perfect time to get all your friends and family together for a fun time filled with good food and good company. When we think of summertime parties, what usually comes to mind are hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and sides to go along with them, but summertime gatherings can go much beyond grilling.

Our full catering menu offers a number of appetizers, entrees, sandwiches, sides, and more in different size platters depending on how many people are attending. We also offer breakfast and brunch by request.

Warmer weather and longer days means it’s the perfect time for summer parties! Having your party catered is an easy way for you to relax throughout the day with your guests, and give everyone a change from the usual cookout food, for a reasonable price.

Check out some of our favorite tips to throwing the perfect summer party:

  • Choose a color palette—everything will really pop!
  • Pick the perfect menu—have a variety of types of food.
  • Serve refreshing drinks.
  • Make shade—a sunburn can kill the party mood within minutes; find or create some shade for your guests!
  • Set up a backyard game—volleyball, corn hole, and kan jam are popular ones!
  • Make a playlist—create a mix of everyone’s favorite summer jams.
  • Keep the bugs at bay—get bug zappers and bug spray for your guests.

All these tips help set the stage for a perfect backyard bash, but for us, food is one of the most important items on the list! Keeping your menu simple and satisfying for your guests is key!  Our trays of appetizers are an easy way to have a little bit of everything. Pick a few entrees and your menu is set! Fewer trips back and forth to the kitchen make for a happy host.  That’s why when you order catering we’ll do the work for you.
