Private & Custom Events
Catering for Your Memorable Private Get-Together
There are many good reasons and important milestones to celebrate or commemorate with friends and family: birthdays, reunions, graduations, baby showers, christenings, bar mitzvahs, wedding receptions, celebrations of life and more.
We’ll work with you to make these days even more special and memorable by providing event catering services that match the mood and the theme of the event.
Whether your venue is a private home, outdoor park, community center or private facility, we’ll work with you to plan the menu and then prepare your wonderful selections. We can also help with setting up the venue, working with our vetted local partners for important details like sound systems, music, equipment rentals, floral arrangements, theme decorations and more.
At that time, we’ll also discuss menu options. You can select from our completed menus or customize yours by mixing and matching. If you don’t see an item listed that you’d like to include, we almost always can make that happen too!
We can also accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences. Please let us know if all or part of the food service needs to be gluten free, dairy free, nut free, soy free, vegan or vegetarian. In any given group of 20 or more, it’s inevitable that one of more people will have these food sensitivities. Don’t let them feel left out!
If you’d like suggestions on these dietary options or your overall menu in general, we have lots of ideas – we’ve done thousands of these events and can suggest some incredible special touches you might not have thought of.
On the big day, our team will be as involved or hands-off as you’d like. We can deliver the food and then come back to pick up and clean up, or you can engage our team for serving, cooking stations, open bar tending and more.
It’s your day and we want to make it as memorable as you do!

A Fusion Menu Experience for a Newly Culturally Blended Family
Some time ago, a family came to us to arrange catering service for a wedding reception for their daughter. The bridal couple included a young man from India and a young woman from the Denver area.
The families wanted this new union commemorated at the reception with a fusion of food items from the two cultures. We chose a theme based on an Indian Kite Festival from an earlier competition we participated in. Authenticity regarding both sides of the menu was critical – to the point where the groom’s mother made a special trip to Denver to sample the Indian selections we and she had suggested.
Needless to say, she and the 400+ guests were pleased with how we captured the authentic Indian dishes, including Chicken Tikka Masala complemented by Rosewater Lemonade – a hit of rosewater infused with lemonade that was garnished with a sugared rim, delicate tea rose and a lemon wedge.
The day was a success … and the couple is living happily ever after last we heard!
