It’s that time of year again!  Early summer is on the way and it’s a time when Dad’s and Grads rule, so if you are celebrating Dad, a Grad, or both, it’s time to plan your party or barbeque.  If your son or daughter is graduating 8th grade, high school, or college, you definitely have their great accomplishments to celebrate.  And Father’s Day is a time when we show our fathers how much we appreciate all they do for us throughout the year.  What better way than to through a BBQ!

It's Time for a Communion Party

Posted on Tue, Apr 05, 2016 @ 04:22 PM

With Easter over and spring finally arriving (we hope), it marks the beginning of Communion season. This joyous occasion in the Christian faith is the beginning of your child’s spiritual journey and marks their participation in the congregation. With so much buzz surrounding that day, of course there is a party. Often families and friends celebrate this occasion together, which can lead to a lot of party planning stress, so why not get your communion party catered or have it at a reception hall? This takes all the stress off of you and allows for you to enjoy your child’s big day to the fullest with all of your guests and your child.

Trending Wedding Venues for 2016

Posted on Wed, Mar 23, 2016 @ 04:24 PM

Are you planning a wedding and stressing out about the venue? Is the “traditional” wedding just not for you? Then why not have an outdoor wedding! Outdoor weddings are currently all the rage with brides, both those who favor the traditional and the more off-beat. They allow for more space for you and your guests, provide a romantic atmosphere and allow for the inclusion of fun things like a sparkler send off or lantern wishes like in Disney’s Tangled. The only limit to an outdoor wedding is your imagination. All you need is the perfect venue to set the scene and then depending on how you decorate sets the mood. Like a garden can easily be transformed into the fairy wonderland of your dreams at night or a barn can become the perfect party place for your reception with the right rustic seating and dance floor. So read on up and get inspired!

Get Lucky with St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

Posted on Fri, Mar 04, 2016 @ 10:30 AM

St. Patrick’s Day is the celebration of all things green and the Luck O’ the Irish!  It’s one day of the year where green bagels rock and even beer is colored green in keeping with the spirit of the day.  The true St. Patrick’s Day celebrates St. Patrick, one of the most commonly recognized patron saints of Ireland and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.  Modern day festivities include parades, traditional Irish meals (mainly corned beef and cabbage) and drinking of alcohol.  March 17th is a celebration of the Irish and Irish American culture.

Did Someone Say Ham? Easter is Right Around the Corner

Posted on Fri, Feb 26, 2016 @ 10:03 AM

It’s that time of year again. The days are getting longer, the flowers are starting to sprout up and everyone is praying for spring. Right in the middle of people emerging from their winter hibernation after the holidays is Easter. For many people Easter can sneak up on them, especially when it’s “early” like this year.. But really what do bunnies and flowers and dying eggs and even ham dinners have to do with the resurrection of Jesus? Absolutely nothing.

Hello Corporate Catering...

Posted on Fri, Feb 19, 2016 @ 11:00 AM

We have all been there, the corporate function, otherwise known as the all-day meeting. Usually it features okay food, some liquor if you’re lucky, and a side of networking. But what if the annual corporate event didn’t have to be that way? What if instead of the usual sandwich platter and beer there was a variety of foods that made you look forward to lunch? This is not a dream, but the reality of working with an experienced catering company.

The 2016 Mardi Gras Season is Here

Posted on Fri, Feb 05, 2016 @ 01:01 PM

Mardi Gras is a season, and not just a day, so parties are taking place from now through March. Mardi Gras doesn’t have to be for those who live in or visit New Orleans. Many people celebrate Fat Tuesday with parties and celebrations all over the country. What a lot of people who celebrate don’t know is that Mardi Gras always begins on the day before Ash Wednesday, or the first day of Lent. During the period of Lent many Christians exclude meat from their diets either completely or on Fridays. They also give up a favorite food or habit (even sometimes drink) during the Lenten period. So, Fat Tuesday is an excuse to party before Lent and then the abstinence begins. But not matter what, no people are more famous for Mardi Gras celebrations than the residents of New Orleans, Louisiana.
