How to Plan a Summer Party

Our Catering Department knows how to bring together a great party.

Here are some of the things our team considers when helping our customers plan their gatherings. You'll find inspiration for drinks, desserts, extra veggie sides, and more.

Plan
Your Menu

We recommend 2 main course selections—one chicken and another meat (pulled pork or sausage are great options here since they can be prepped ahead and just reheated), accompanied by 2 vegetable salads and a starch or grain salad. 

Look for a balance of colors and flavors.

Save time and effort—serve a mix of home-cooked and prepared items. 

A little planning makes parties go smoother. Whether you order our easy summer party for 12, grazing-style party for 25, or just add a few ready-to-serve items to your own party, our Catering Team can help. Order & Pay Online

Citronella tiki torches and candles  set the mood and discourage bugs.

Centerpieces with marigolds are  natural bug-repellents.

Check inventory of coolers, backyard  lighting, and bug spray.
