There is a catering craze on the uprise that I am simply crazy about: interactive food stations! While the idea of food stations in lieu of a standard catering line is nothing new, caterers have become more creative about how they serve and what they serve your guests.
Thomas Caterers of Distinction has raised the bar once again for catering in Indianapolis. I have always enjoyed their plated meals at weddings (hello, carrot souffle!), but I was recently blown away at the Snappening.com Launch Party at the always fabulous D'Amore event space.
If you are planning a cocktail and hors d'oeuvre reception, imagine your guests mingling from station to station of artistically displayed miniature snacks. Thomas offers a wide range of creative and unique "minis" such as my 3 favorites:
-Mini Tacos served alongside Mini Margaritas
-Mini Grilled Cheese Wedges on Tomato Soup Shooters
-Bite-sized Meatloaf & Mashed Potato Pancakes (your entire meal in one bite!)
The desserts at the launch party seemed to be the hit of the evening and the true interactive stations. Thomas had servers roasting s'mores on clothes pins, PB&J Nitro Pops crafted and frozen before your eyes, and the most entertaining was the caramel corn smoker pops dipped in dry ice. Brides and grooms could build an entire dessert reception based off of creative treats that will leave guests surprised and enthused. Champagne Pop Rock Push Ups anyone?
Rather than only leaving you hungry for lunch, I would like to invite you to be original and have some fun when you choose your menu. Your guests will thank you and you will be happy for any even more unforgettable day!
