Catering Food Station Ideas
One of the greatest challenges facing anyone planning an event is finding new ways to set it apart from other dull business gatherings. While some of the day’s, or night’s, activities must remain, the determined event planner is always looking for a new twist, something unique that will add a bit of memorable fun! Catering choices can have a big impact on the success of any meeting or event, and foregoing the traditional plated chicken dinner is a great way to make a lasting impression on your guests. So, if you’re looking to spice up your next event, why not try something a little different? Mission Inn offers just the solution for this insatiable problem. Inn-teractive Food Stations!
Interactive food stations are a great way to breathe some new life into your event. Rather than settling on a one size fits all menu, take the opportunity to get your guests up out of their seats and enjoying themselves. Food stations can bring some much needed fun and excitement to any event, and Mission Inn offers many food station ideas. Even better, our food stations are affordable, providing a greater variety of choices for your guests without breaking your event budget. So, without any further ado, let us introduce you to what Mission Inn offers!
The Martini Mashed Potato Bar
Sure, martini glasses are typically used for those brightly colored fruity cocktails that we all love so much, but nothing about this martini is typical. Imagine steaming hot whipped potatoes loaded with all the fixings. We even offer purple Peruvian potatoes if you are looking for a flare of color. Toppings for your decadent potatoes include pan roasted mushrooms, blackened chicken, crumbled bleu cheese, shredded cheddar, smoked bacon and caramelized onions. These “martinis” can be served as appetizers or accompany a main entree. The best part about this martini is that you can take it to go, what other bar offers that?
The Fajita Station
We’ve reinvented a classic favorite! Our fajitas are served sizzling with flavor and excitement at a custom fajita bar. Your guests can experiment and build their fajitas from a variety of fresh ingredients for a light and tasty afternoon snack or late night meal. Add a cerveza or two and you have a party that can put the finishing touch on a long day of resort activities.
The Hot Chocolate Bar
For those winter time events, nothing finishes a long day like a piping hot cup of cocoa. Our hot chocolate bar appeals to the kid in everyone, and the ability to mix and match flavors brings some adult fun to a childhood favorite. Add a splash of something harder and you have hot chocolate toddy to close out the day’s events. What better way to network or end a long day on the course than over a hot cup of cocoa and a fine cigar?
The Interactive Candy Station
Candy stations may seem superfluous at a corporate event but they always turn out to be a big hit with everyone. No matter how grown up people like to consider themselves, when they see a vast display of tasty treats they instantly become kids again. We load our candy stations with a variety of choices (including some Mission Inn favorites), and let everyone pick and mix their own selections. Here’s an extra tip for the corporate party planners – provide your convention servicer with some personalized touches featuring your company logo to be displayed at the candy station.
Sometimes it can seem rather challenging to find new ideas to brighten up an event. Naturally, you want to create a memorable experience for your guests, but you also need to be mindful of your budget. Our interactive choices provide the perfect opportunity to liven up your event, without interfering with the day’s activities or surrendering your wallet.
If you’re looking to bring something new and exciting to your next event, skip the traditional catering menu and wow your guests with a variety of fun, interactive food bars! It’s sure to provide a memorable, and flavorful, event experience.
