Looking Back: 2015’s Catering Trends

We’re feeling very nostalgic this December. We just wrapped up our 10th year in business and time isn’t slowing down for any of us. Here are our favorite 2015 wedding catering trends:

Signature Drinks

This is at the top of our list because it gives your guests a sneak peek into your favorite drink. Don’t be afraid to have two! The bride likes French 75s and the groom likes Old Fashioned’s? No problem. Let your friends and family try your favorites!

Naked Cakes

While we don’t make wedding cakes, we LOVE the naked cake. I know myself personally, I don’t like much icing, so this is a super ideal option for me!

All Things Miniature

We’ve had so much fun with this one. Just looking back at our tasting a few months ago, our late night menu featured all things mini! Mini hotdogs, mini beignets, mini EVERYTHING!

Something Simple Turned Elegant

The simple eats – like grilled cheese – can become gourmet with the right ingredients! Pairing it with a miniature (see we love mini) cup of tomato soup and it becomes not only a delicious and simple eat, but it’s also almost nostalgic and comfortable for your guests.

These are just a few things that we loved in the trends this year. We enjoy working with our brides and exploring ideas with them!
