“Brunch celebrations are big and robust this year,” according to Jacquie Bols, owner of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering. No longer reserved for vacations or lazy weekends, brunch celebrations are taking center stage as celebratory events for birthdays, receptions, holidays, baby showers, retirements, and even corporate events.
Brunch is a great way to relax your body and wake up your palate with something delicious and maybe even a little decadent. Big Brunch catering ideas:
The Root-to-Stem movement is all about reducing food waste and using every possible part of fresh fruits and vegetables. Making use of the entire fruit or vegetable is what we’re all about at Jacquie’s Catering – since we love the Farm-to-Table movement and use fresh Indiana-grown produce as much as possible.
Root-to-Stem food possibilities:
Mushroom Superfoods! Mushrooms have incredible immune system benefits and they taste amazing, making them an exciting addition to lots of trendy eateries! Mushroom dishes we love:
Grazing Tables are terrific for low key events – especially when you want folks to get to know each other. Grazing tables allow guests to mingle over locally-produced cheeses and meats, spreads, fruits and breads. The more diverse and colorful, the greater the impact.
Pretzel Walls are having a moment! (As are bagel, cronut and donut walls.) This idea takes a classic comfort food and presents it in an unfamiliar way. It’s novel and unexpected, fun and – interactive – so perfect for birthdays, receptions, corporate breakfasts, even thank you events.
Who wouldn’t love choosing from a doughnut wall? Consider naming the types of pretzels and bagels after those you are celebrating, thanking – or introducing.
The point of any get together is to celebrate with food, drink, music, and conversation. How you do that – and with what type of creative presentation -- is the art of a great party. Let’s talk about trends and your next event!
