Spring Catering in the Bay

Ideas That Resonate

Birds are singing, flowers are blooming, you can wear your sandals again without unwelcome judgment from passerby — spring is here! What better way to ring in the new season than by throwing a springtime celebration? Answer: there is no better way. It was a rhetorical question. Read on for some ideas to keep your next party as fresh as the new leaves.


Keep it green. This one seems pretty obvious, but you’d be surprised how often it’s swept under the rug in the pursuit of an extravagant, up-to-trend party, even in the environmentally-conscious Bay Area. But there’s no need to sacrifice flavor, fun or creativity for the sake of environmental friendliness — find you a catering company that can do both! Handheld Catering is the perfect choice for sustainable, delicious and beautifully-prepared Palo Alto catering. Their farm-to-table approach to dining ensures your food this spring is as kind to the earth as the earth is to you.


Take advantage of re-opening farmers’ markets. Warmer weather means farmers’ markets are opening back up all across the country. Let your countrymen have their fun, and try your best not to brag about California’s unbeatable produce. Bay Area residents certainly know it: we have it best. Take advantage of the springtime haul by finding a catering company that sources its ingredients from local farms and thanks the vendors in person.


Work flowers into your event design, and even your food! You’d be hard-pressed to find a person that doesn’t like spring flowers. (And if you’ve found one, do you even want them at your party?) If you’re keeping it classic, consider placing a variety of coordinating wildflower bouquets throughout your venue, but if you’d really like to surprise your guests, figure out a way to work flowers into the meal. Better yet, find a catering company that can do it for you! Edible flowers can be a delightful and sophisticated accent to your dining offerings, and the creative culinary team at Handheld Catering is always up for a challenge. Ask how they can work flowers into your meal and into your event decorations.


If you’re planning a springtime soiree, give Handheld Catering a call at (408)692-4782 to start planning an event that resonates with your guests senses and their sensibilities. Very little compares to the joy of a new season under the sun (or fog), but delicious and sustainable Palo Alto catering served with kindness comes pretty close.
