At Riverhouse Catering, we like to stay on the leading edge of the food and service trends in the special events industry. With the start of a New Year, we’re always paying close and taking notes.
For 2020, we’ve already spotted some catering trends worth covering.
Here a just a few ideas to consider as you plan for your upcoming celebration.
Upscale BBQs are Trending
With warm weather making its way to New England, we’ll soon see an increase in requests for outdoor events. However, this year, in particular, trends are pointing toward upscale backyard gatherings with an elegant twist.
Long gone are the days of paper plates, hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. Backyard parties have really kicked it up a notch today and are totally transforming the experience you can have in your own yard. Elements including expert lighting, conversational furniture rentals, and trendy food bars are just some of the newest ways these parties are transforming.
Work with an expert caterer to make the perfect day come to life. If you’re planning an upcoming event such as a retirement party, this is the perfect opportunity to have an impressive barbecue in your backyard complete with all the trimmings and served up by world-class chefs and catering staff.
Spring Baby Shower in Blissful Gardens
Baby showers in the spring are so magical. There’s really nothing more serene and beautiful than the beautiful florals, pastels and outdoor breeze that can be had on these seasonal events. Celebrate your baby shower out in a garden among nature’s pure beauty. There are many venue locations in Connecticut where you can rent space and hire a caterer to make this dream vision come true.
Riverhouse Catering has strong partnerships with venue locations across the state. Burr Homestead, for example, has four acres of beautiful gardens and reflecting pools. Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill also has a lovely garden backdrop with a beautiful floral arch perfect for pictures! Need more ideas, give us a call!
Location, Location, Location
We can’t talk about catered event trends without of course talking about some of the up and coming location trends people are in search of. Whatever the celebration, people want to make the day memorable for their guests. A great way to do this is by choosing a location that will leave a lasting impression.
Consider a location such as the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford. With so many galleries and diverse settings throughout the museum as well as a 3D theater and roof garden, the options are endless to make it a completely unique day unlike anything else.
The day you say ‘I do’ still reigns as the ultimate day of celebration. Today’s brides and grooms are looking for new, fun and personalized ways to experience their wedding day with their guests. Having your big day catered by an expert staff specializing in elegance and delicious food choices will make the experience as magical as you dream it to be.
Transform a barn location for your big day. Have your nuptials by the water or get married in a museum and then have a follow-up brunch the next day with your closest friends.
Choose personalized snacks to serve late night for guests or have an unconventional food theme that represents your unique tastes.
Remember: Choosing the best location, food and décor requires a catering team that supports your vision and is the best way to make your event a success!
