Movie Night

They combine the outdoor atmosphere with the excitement and fun of watching a movie projected on a large outdoor screen. These events provide a unique experience that can’t be matched by any other event format. Whether you choose to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard or at a nearby park, they will ensure hours of entertainment for everyone involved!

Cocktail Party

Hosting a cocktail party is a fantastic way to bring friends and family together for an evening of conversation and delicious food. To make the cocktail party both enjoyable and memorable, it is important to prepare appropriate cocktail party food in advance. Finger foods such as mini sandwiches, vegetables, and dip, and international hors d’oeuvres are great options to serve your guests. These dishes may be prepared well in advance so that you can spend more time enjoying the company of your friends rather than worrying about cooking at the last minute. In addition to easy-to-make finger foods, guests can also enjoy cold drinks such as beer, wine, or Champagne to make the cocktail party even more festive. If the thought of having to prepare a wide range of appetizers for your guests frightens you view our menus and contact us to ensure your party goes off without a hitch.

Block Party

Block parties bring people together and create great memories, and the food served at these events can add to the experience. Block party food should reflect the culture and interests of the community and can range from classic set-ups such as grills, hot dogs, and hamburgers to themed snacks or cuisine that reflects the diversity of the participants attending.

The next time you are thinking of planning a party consider the above types of parties. They are all great ways to bring family and friends together. If you are wanting to cater your next party or event view our menus and contact us if you have any questions.
