The party season is never really over. There are birthdays, family reunions, get-togethers with friends, and other occasions for coming together.
While nothing will beat the busy schedule of the holiday season in my kitchen, I’m always glad to have a few favorite food suppliers to depend on when these events do come up.
One of my potluck recommendations last year was Lily & Rose, and I’m still calling them for the events I’ve been hosting these last weeks — both at home and for other special occasions, like Grace Home‘s Petals and Poetry. Not only is the food freshly made, everything tastes so good and looks so pretty!
At home, I choose to order the party trays so I know I have enough to serve my guests. I love that Lily & Rose has much to choose from, which lets me vary my menu as needed. The food is delivered in foil trays and it’s really up to you if you feel the need to transfer them to another platter or serve as is. (I think it depends on the kind of party you’re hosting.) Here are some items worth trying out:
Also on the menu: Appetizers & Canapes
Lily & Rose is actually a gourmet catering service, so they have more than the party trays. If you need starters (or canapes for a cocktail party), you can ask them for what you need. For instance, salads and finger foods are also available.
There have been times that I’ve asked Lily & Rose to create a canape menu based on a theme. Here’s a romantic spread for the Valentine event, Petals and Poetry. Aren’t they so pretty?
Try them out and let me know what you think!
