If you are starting to be fully immersed in the fun days of summer, why not throw a party! Whatever event you have in mind this summer, Ranch Events has what it takes to make your event one to remember. Here are four catering ideas that will make your next bash sparkle

  • Summer Refreshing Beverages:

The key to summer catering is to keep it fun, relaxed and refreshing. Whether you are planning a wedding reception, a birthday party or a corporate event, start with your beverage and work around that. Mojitos, margaritas, or daiquiris are always a fruity fun way to offset the hot days of summer. If you’re looking for a premade cocktail with nonalcoholic options, tea with fruit juices is a great mixture to quench the dog days of summer.

  •  Sizzling Appetizers to Beat the Summer Heat:

A sure way to beat the heat in the summer is to serve up appetizers that sizzle and have a kick. One trend is spicy and finger foods. Not only will it help keep your guests mingling, but it also provides a variety of options for your guests to have fun trying. The key is to keep it unique and interesting so that your guests aren’t expecting the same old thing. Ranch Events has an extensive Hors D’Oeuvre menu where you are sure to find something that tantalizes your taste buds. If you are preparing appetizers yourself, try one or all of the following

Our entrees are fresh, and they’re sure to impress even the most discerning foodie in the room. In the case of allergies or special dietary requirements, Ranch Events we will create just the right thing that is safe and allergen-free.

Father’s Day is fast approaching, and whether it’s his first or his fiftieth, Dads love to be appreciated.  A lot of attention is paid to Mother’s Day, but don’t forget Dad. Even though some men aren’t as verbal about their emotions, Dads take pride in fatherhood and like to feel loved, too.

On Father’s Day, many people make a special effort for their fathers or father figures.  Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday, so different families have different traditions. These can range from a simple phone call or greetings card to large parties honoring all father figures in an extended family.

The date when Father’s Day is celebrated varies from country to country.  This day often means dads around the country get socks, ties, and other assorted presents.  If your dad has a sweet tooth; a frosted sugar cookie made in the shape of a tie will definitely bring a big smile to your dad’s face.  A tie that Dad can finally enjoy!!
