If you’re hosting a private event, chances are you have a lot on your plate. When it comes to event planning, every little detail counts, from a delicious and beautifully-presented meal to the atmosphere of the room. At Handheld Catering, our expert team will handle it all. We’ll take care of your private event planning and catering so you can relax and focus on what’s important: having a great time with your guests.

We know how to have a good time at Handheld Catering, but we’re seriously committed to excellent eats. That’s why we source our food locally whenever possible, using seasonally fresh ingredients lovingly raised by farmers and carefully chosen by our expert chefs. Our farm-to-fork approach means your food is hand-crafted on every level — and if you don’t mind our saying so, it couldn’t be in better hands. Whether you’re planning a glitzy gathering or a cozy night in with a few loved ones, we’ll concoct a meal that won’t just leave your guests satisfied, it’ll leave them talking.

At Handheld Catering, when we say fresh, we mean it. Our pop-up kitchen is also available by request, which means you can enjoy a meal straight from the kitchen. We’ll stay tucked away so that the bustle of the kitchen doesn’t detract from your event’s atmosphere, be it casual or black-tie elegant. Our service staff will go above and beyond to make sure your guests are attended to so that everyone feels like the star of the show, even if you’re the one in the limelight.

An expertly-crafted meal is a great centerpiece to a private event, but it’s the little details that make all the difference. And no one knows little details like our private events team! Our event coordinator will make sure everything is in order, from plating to decor, mood lighting and music. We want your event to feel personal to you, so every guest feels special and the occasion is one to remember. We’ll bring our ideas to the table and build your event around your needs and tastes, so you get the best of both worlds: your vision and our experience.

Let Handheld Catering handle your private event planning and catering, so you can enjoy the occasion as much as your guests will. Call us today at (408)692-4782 and we’ll get started on planning your big event in Santa Clara, Los Altos, Sunnyvale, San Jose or another Bay Area location.
