Summer is the perfect time to host outdoor events, from rehearsal dinners and bridal showers to family gatherings and picnics. Whether you're planning an intimate garden party or a grand celebration, catering plays a crucial role in creating a memorable experience for your guests. Let’s explore the latest summer catering trends that Founding Farmers Co. Catering & Events can help you with to impress your guests.
Outdoor Dining Experiences
Alfresco dining is another popular trend for summer events. Founding Farmers Co. Catering & Events can create an outdoor dining setup that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, such as a long table decorated with fresh flowers and greenery, twinkling lights, and colorful linens.
Eco-friendly outdoor setups are also gaining popularity. We can help you source sustainable decor, such as reusable tablecloths, bamboo straws, and solar-powered lighting.
Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important consideration for event planners and attendees alike. By choosing sustainable caterers like us, you can reduce waste and minimize your environmental impact while still providing delicious food and drinks for your guests.
When planning your menu, we will use seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, which not only support the local economy, but also reduce the carbon footprint of your event. We can also serve water in refillable bottles or jugs to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles.
Incorporating these summer catering trends can elevate your event and create an unforgettable experience for your guests. By offering creative beverage options, hosting outdoor dining experiences, and choosing sustainable caterers like us, you can create an event that is not only memorable but also eco-friendly.

Creative Beverage Offerings
One of the easiest ways to add a touch of creativity to your catered summer event is by serving refreshing and unexpected drinks. Our scratch sodas, rickeys, fresh-squeezed juices, sparkling mocktails, and farmers tea are well-loved in our restaurants and provide a memorable addition to any event. They are a creative and flavorful option suitable for all ages. To make your beverage offerings stand out, ask us about unique ways to serve them, such as in vintage glassware, mason jars, or copper mugs.
Craft cocktails also add interest and fun to a catered event. Cocktails made with fresh, seasonal ingredients are a popular trend this year. Our handcrafted cocktail menu features drinks primarily made with our own small-batch spirits from Founding Spirits.
