Summertime in Philadelphia is a great backdrop for any outdoor event. Weddings, graduations, birthday parties, or “just because” celebrations can all be catered while you enjoy the sunshine and fresh air in one of Philly’s many incredible outdoor venues.
Presentation of your catering menu
Catering an outdoor event requires meticulous planning and DiAntonio’s Catering can help you plan your event down to the smallest detail. No matter the size of your guest list, from big, elaborate 200-guest weddings to intimate gatherings, we can help create a menu that not only tastes great but looks great, as well. We know how to set up a great presentation to wow all of your guests.
Sit-down or buffet
Once we know the location and the resources available to us on the day of the event – such as electricity, available equipment, access to a kitchen, etc. – we can start to talk about the type of food that you would like. The type of food that we create will be dependent on whether you want buffet style or a sit-down meal.
The type of seating available will also have an impact on the type of food that will be appropriate for your event. If you are standing up at tables, sitting down, using a knife and fork, etc., all will be taken into consideration as we customize your menu.
A buffet is less formal and will allow for a constant mingling of your guests. It is typically is a bit less time-consuming and cost effective than a sit-down dinner. However, a sit-down dinner will also ensure that you have the right amount of food. When planning a buffet, sometimes you will run out of one dish that is more popular with guests and have plenty left over of another dish. Food waste can be eliminated with a sit-down dinner where each guest is served the same portion.
Food allergies and ingredients
We want your event to go off without a hitch. Our dishes are always made from scratch using fresh and local ingredients, even when cooking ethnic cuisine. Even some of our desserts are made in house. We can customize any menu for any event whether it’s breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Talk to our executive chef about your culinary tendencies and any allergies you or your guests may have, and our team will come up with mouth-watering dishes to make your event the talk of the season.
