Setting the Scene with a Great Theme

With Gaston Catering you will get an amazing theme for all your Catering needs in Folsom and the Sacramento area

Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding or holiday party, from the invitations you send, to the décor you create & cuisine or style of menu you create, to the party favors you send your guests away with, creating a festive theme for your special event catering will set the scene for a memorable event and will lend to the fun!

There are so many ideas to create the perfect atmosphere and ambiance for your party. Whether you create a strong “color” theme such as a summer lawn party with flowing white linens and hundreds of white candles including having all of your guests wear white, to a midnight masquerade theme engagement party with beautiful peacock theme backdrop of glittering gold teal & purple with exotic hand passed appetizers such as Persian Chicken Kabobs with Lemon & Saffron to Sweet Potato Cakes with Red Pepper Aioli.

In the past 12 years we have worked with many clients to create memorable themes.

One of my favorites was a 1950 drive-in birthday party complete with a “car hop” hand passing mini cheeseburger sliders, fries, giant onion rings and boozy root beer float “shooters” served in shot glasses with mini vanilla ice cream scoops. All in a back drop of a strong color palate of red, yellow and black. This client had vintage cars to showcase and of course the band played classic rock & roll and the guests were in the best poodle skirts & jeans & leather jackets.

We recently created a Sacramento “Farm to Table” reception at the Elks Tower Ballroom in downtown Sacramento. We selected California Poppy Colored Linens and utilized fresh produce, flowers & herbs for centerpieces and décor. We created dishes that are grown or produced in our local region.

Here are some of the dishes we featured for this special event.

  • NAPA VALLEY: Charcuterie  Display of Artisan Salami, Cured Meats, Grilled Local Vegetables, Artichoke Hearts, Roasted Peppers &  Assorted Olives
  • SACRAMENTO: Bacon Jam & Brie on Grilled Flatbread
  • PT REYES: Selection of Local Artisan Cheeses with Handmade Crostini and Toasts SAN FRANSICO Sweet Crab Risotto Cakes with Red Pepper Aioli
  • STOCKTON: Wild Mushroom & Gruyere Cheese Puff Pastry Pinwheels
  • SACRAMENTO: Fresh Central Valley Tomato Bruschetta with Handmade Crostini GRASS VALLEY Grilled Dinner Bell Farms Organic Chicken Skewers Finished with Fresh Herbs.

Of course Wine Cave Dinners paired with your favorite wine selections, Traditional Hawaiian Luaus poolside, Nuevo Latino Latin Fiestas at the park are always a great backdrop for a great party. Gaston Catering has several regionally themed menus to choose from.

Once we determine the your vision for the location, theme and style of party you want to create, at Gaston Catering & Event Company we are able to customize a signature menu to compliment the occasion and vibe you are looking for. Please ask our event coordinators are about this service.
