Catering & Social Events
Make it Memorable!
Whether it is a family reunion, corporate gala or a mitzvah celebration, a full-service caterer is the backbone of your event! We not only handle the savory food, but can also provide desserts, service staff, bartending, set up, clean up and so much more. With so many details ahead, we understand that planning an event can seem overwhelming, so you are making the right decision by hiring a full-service caterer like Atlas Catering to lessen the stress!
The first decision you will want to consider is the atmosphere you want to create for your guests. The style of dinner service will be one of the largest contributors of how your guests feel and interact at your special event. Casual or formal, structured or free-flowing, here is a breakdown of your options along with the major considerations with each style of service:
For parties big and small!
Perfect for office lunches, casual dinners, cocktail parties, corporate events and informal weddings. Atlas Catering will set up your food display so it is ready to go when your guests arrive. Most drop-off orders must be ordered at least 7 days in advance and are based on availability.
Relaxing at their tables, our staff invite your guests to serve themselves from beautiful platters that are passed around the tables. This style of service is very reminiscent of a big family meal at home. Since there is no waiting in line, your guests are served in half the amount of time as a buffet service. That leaves more time for the party!
Mix, mingle, eat and dance; the party never stops! Food stations create a social, laid back atmosphere that will keep guests engaged and having fun. You do not need a seat for every guest. We encourage a mix of dining tables, cocktail tables and lounge seating, especially since stationed food is easy to eat standing up at a cocktail table. Have fun with your event design and try some non-traditional seating! We recommend 3 to 5 sweet and savory stations spread throughout the event space to encourage guests to move around. There is plenty of space for large centerpieces and decor on your dining tables because salad size plates and flatware are kept up at each station so guests can keep going back for more.
Plated presentation gives your guests a feeling of elegance. If a formal event is your vision, plated service might be a great fit! Guests will choose their entrée on their RSVP cards. This ensures that any dietary restrictions are addressed and the dinner service is seamless and smooth! Table centerpieces and décor can be as elaborate as you’d like. A plated meal doesn’t require as much space on the table, so let your floral design go over the top!
