Catering Ideas for Summer Gatherings

With summer fast approaching, Calgarians are high-spirited and ready to take advantage of this radiant season. And what’s the best way to do that than to have BBQ catering services at your outdoor event!!

There’s no better time than summer to connect with family, host get-togethers, soak up some warm weather, and eat some delicious food with perhaps a cold one. So in this article, Rocky Mountain BBQ provides you with a few catering ideas for your summer gathering.

Creative Menu Ideas

When it comes to outdoor catering services for the summer, a few things you could consider are:

Keep it Simple – Embrace minimalism at summer gatherings. No need for a highly-decorated serving table as if it’s a wedding (unless it is one!). Less cluttered plates, the less clean up.

Consider Vegetarian Options – Veggie burgers are quite a popular menu choice, and so are veggie skewers with peppers, onions, squash, and more. Salad dishes are a way to go as well.

Fruits – From watermelon chunks, grapes, and strawberries to mangoes. Add some flavour not just to your menu but to the overall aesthetic of your serving table as well!

Deserts – Consider delicious dessert options for your guests, such as freshly baked pies, cupcakes and cookie platters
