Your Fourth of July barbecue is great; all that Halloween candy was, too. Thanksgiving turkeys are so… yesterday. And do you know what that means? That means…
Christmastime is here! It’s the happiest time of the year!
And do you know what that means? That means…
The time for Christmas parties is here!
Everyone knows the secret to a great party is great food, but why throw a great party with great food when you can throw an amazing holiday party with great food and an even greater theme?!
Consider one of these party themes, and let Silver Spoon Caterers do the cooking.
No one ever said Christmas has to be all sugarplums and red-nosed reindeer; and if they did, no one ever told Tim Burton. Channel your inner Jack Skellington for a party so peculiar your guests will never forget.
Serve a traditional old English menu of roasted bird (Maybe turkey’s not so yesterday.), vegetables, salad, and soup. Invite a great many, or make room for just a few; gather ‘round a fireplace, on armchairs and couches, and surround yourself with ominous melodies befitting the occasion.
At Christmastime, and all year round, there’s nothing more rewarding than giving to, and caring for those less fortunate than we. Channel your inner Santa Claus, and transform your home (or any other party venue) into a workshop that brims with [donated] toys for all the girls and boys. String lights and garland; relocate the North Pole, and maybe, just maybe — if you’re extra special nice — the big guy himself will let you borrow his sleigh for the occasion.
Serve a menu of passed hors d’oeuvres (Might we suggest Honey-Glazed Chicken Lollipops?), classic salads, and plated entrees.
And as for dessert? You absolutely must leave cookies out for Santa!
White is the color of snow. White is the color of elegance. Channel your inner Bing Crosby, and throw an extravagantly elegant white Christmas party. Think white linens, white china, white décor; you might even consider requesting that your guests come dressed in all white.
Serve all-white food (chicken, white asparagus, and cheesecake for dessert, perhaps?) and craft a few all-white cocktails.
When it comes to throwing an amazing holiday party with great food, the limits are few, and your options are many — especially when Silver Spoon Caterers gets involved, so give us a call, and let’s talk turkey (or maybe even pheasant).
On Thursday, December 4, 2014, the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce took to the offices of Odin, Feldman & Pittleman for a celebratory bash that shined: The Gold & Silver Soiree. As Reston’s Golden Anniversary year concluded, this annual event (formerly known simply as Celebration) commemorated Reston’s past, while embracing its rich present, and looking forward to a prosperous future.
Reston business and community leaders were treated to an evening of live music; bourbon and spirit tastings courtesy of Bowman Distillery; and a scrumptious menu of prime rib, hors d’oeuvres, and sweet treats provide by yours truly — Silver Spoon Caterers.
Here we are, three days before Christmas, and your mom just called: She wanted to know if you will, “Pretty please, bring a dessert to dinner.” Talk about last minute. But hey, it’s the holidays; what the family wants, the family gets. You’ll don your baker’s cap, and your apron; break out the measuring cups and spoons; preheat the oven. You’ll pour a tall glass of wine, and get to work — but you just realized, you don’t have any idea what it is that you’ll make.
That’s where Silver Spoon Caterers comes in; we’ve scoured the Web, and found just the cupcakes, just the fudge, just the cookies, and just the donuts (Who says they’re just for breakfast anymore?) to feed a crowd craving sugar.
