Tips for Holiday Entertaining

posted on December 8th, 2014 by Melinda Race

Holiday entertaining comes in all shapes and forms, and while the elaborate celebrations can be a fun change of pace, there’s so much more to seasonal entertaining than those “Big Show” evenings. In fact, the first images that pop in my mind when I hear “holiday entertaining” are intricately styled buffet tables or gold sparkling everything. I also see smaller gatherings with close friends and family in a comfortable and festive environment, including great conversation, good wine, and some holiday platters. This kind of gathering is very manageable amidst crazy holiday schedules and can even come together in the form of an impromptu idea.  That is why I am really excited to share our menu with you and let you know we can make it simple, beautiful, and yummy!   Platters of crudité, fresh fruit baskets, European cheese platters, eight layer dips, and an international satay platter are a small selection of what we can do.  So, if you need to take one item to the… Read More

Super Bowl Catering

posted on January 30th, 2014 by Melinda Race

The sound of Peyton Manning barking "Omaha! Omaha!" is picked up by a tiny microphone in an offensive lineman's pads so it can be broadcast to the world.  In an age of enormous high-definition televisions and games streamed to tablets and smartphones, audio seems almost quaint. Yet TV executives have made it a major focus in recent years, for the exact reason so many people are fascinated by the Broncos quarterback's audibles.   Immediately after the Seahawks game, what great excitement as the microphone is put up to a players mouth while the body is full of adrenaline from a great play a moment earlier.   It is all so exciting and times have changed.  Americans are obsessed with football and who can blame them? That same excitement come with the foods we pick to celebrate this great American sports. We just  love good food, fun competition and family enjoying the Super Bowl....and let’s not forget the half time show and the great commercials!   Bristol Farms Catering is… Read More

Spooky Halloween Catering

posted on October 24th, 2013 by Melinda Race

Growing up, my sister and I were filled with excitement to pull the great, big "Halloween Box" down, filled with decorations and costume to add a little bit of spirit into the holiday. She and I always dressed in the same costume  every single year for Halloween; we would dress as the people of Romani with our beautiful skirts, white blouses, lots of great necklaces, bracelets, and rings!  The really exciting piece was when we were putting on makeup, as I always felt so grown up.   While raising my kids, they chose to dress as something different every year. We've dressed as the Joker, a skunk, leopard, princess, ladybug, hobo, and bride, just to name a few.   We have always enjoyed Halloween at my house.   Time changes, foliage changes, the air is so cool and there is just something so magical about it.   Who doesn't love a Halloween party? It's the greatest opportunity to get together with family and friends to enjoy silly costumes, games, good food and drink. Bristol… Read More
