Because of this, you definitely want to jump on the opportunity to try some of these amazing seasonal menu items before they're gone! In fact, serving these items at parties, such as a bridal shower, themed party, birthday party, or simply spring parties and gatherings is a wonderful idea. Here are some awesome party ideas where you can serve these great foods.
A Spring Brunch
One awesome party idea for spring is a brunch. This is a great opportunity to get a group of family and friends together to enjoy a great meal. You can host a brunch with your family, friend, coworkers, church group, or anyone else that you'd like.
Ordering breakfast items off of a spring breakfast menu and having them catered at your event, possibly with the perfect pastel color for your table settings, is perfect for your event. One great menu item to consider is the breakfast burrito. This burrito comes with eggs, chorizo chicken sausage, cheddar cheese, black beans, jalapeños, and avocado and lime cream, all wrapped inside a delicious, warm tortilla. You also have a side of house-made salsa that you can use for dipping. Add your favorite family foods and you will have the picture perfect brunch! Another great option on the breakfast menu, if you don't want to do the cooking, is the prosciutto and sundried tomato. This is a very nutrient rich dish that comes with sliced avocado, arugula, and shaved parmesan. It is then drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with red pepper flakes and everything seasoning, and served on a slice of warm bread that is made right in-house.
An Outdoor Picnic
Another awesome idea for a spring party or gathering is an outdoor picnic. The weather is warming up and everything looks beautiful outside, so it just makes sense to host a picnic. This allows everyone to enjoy the outdoors, and it provides you with plenty of space for your party.
When it comes to the food served at your party, ordering off a seasonal lunch menu is a great idea. The first option is the chicken caesar wrap. This entrée includes prosciutto, sundried tomato pesto, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, and arugula. All of these ingredients then come together perfectly on toasted bread, with a delicious taste that only home-made bread has. The other lunch option is the chicken caprese. This includes fresh sliced boars head chicken, basil walnut pesto, arugula, roasted tomato, mozzarella, and a delicious balsamic glaze. The chicken caprese is then pressed on the panini grill, before being served. You can also order and serve some delicious lemonade at your picnic, that is also made fresh. Don't forget to pair these great optiions with some fresh fruit and fresh flowers to enjoy the day outside.
A Girl's/Boy's Night
Getting together as a group of girls for a girl's night, or a group of boys for a boy's night, is always a great time. It allows you to have some fun together and leave the cares of the day behind, especially if there are some party themes you use. It is also a great time to do things you enjoy and eat great treats and other dessert foods.
You can go with a strawberry raspberry crumb bar that is both vegan and gluten-free, mocha or blueberry lavender chia puddings, vanilla strawberry or pistachio cream, crème puffs, and strawberry, lemon, or pistachio assorted French macaroons that are gluten-free. There are house-made strawberry fig newton cookies, blueberry lavender or carrot cake daily scones that are either made regular or vegan, gluten-free, and assorted muffins that include blueberry, morning glory, vegan banana chocolate chip, lemon poppy muffin, and vegan, gluten-free carrot oat. When it comes to cakes and cupcakes, the limonada, carrot and cream cheese, and triple strawberry options are all incredibly delicious options to consider. You can also include some strawberry and lavender syrups to a variety of dishes, both of which are also gluten-free and vegan.
A big part of any event is food, so you want to make sure that you are serving great foods that all of your guests will be able to enjoy. Having foods catered also makes the event more enjoyable for you because you don't have to worry about making the food yourself. You have the option to order as many as you'd like ahead of time, making it easy to get your menu items. Having a diverse menu also allows you to get exactly what you need, and there are plenty of healthy options. When it comes to dietary restrictions, the vegan and gluten-free options make it possible to serve almost everyone. This is incredibly beneficial since many people have certain dietary restrictions that they must adhere to.
