Farm Wedding Inspiration: A Mid-Summer Wedding at The Overlook at Geer Tree Farm

  • Posted on: 25 July 2018
  • By: Brian and Mick

There’s something about starry summer nights, bonfires and acres of farmland that really sets the scene for a dreamy New England wedding. So when a venue encompasses all of those things – and then some – we’re sold.

Geer Tree Farm is the epitome of the perfect romantic farm wedding destination. Nestled away in Griswold, CT on 140 acres of private farmland, this New England gem is one of our favorite venues to work with throughout the year! 

Recently, we had the honor of catering a beautiful July wedding for 160+ guests on the farm. The favors and ambience matched the outdoorsy theme, the sun was shining bright for the couple’s “I Do’s” and the menu was out of this world if we do say so ourselves.

We love bringing people together around good food! Do you manage an apartment complex or community? Offering catered events for your residents is a great way to foster new relationships within your community as well as make your residents feel appreciated. Here are 4 unique menu theme ideas we know your residents will love! community catering apartments condos

Four Party Theme Ideas for Resident Events

Hawaiian Luau 

Take a tip from Village Green Apartments, and dazzle your residents with a Hawaiian Luau! Our Summer Hawaiian BBQ menu is great for all your summer events, and includes delicious fan-favorites like Kahlua Pork, Pulled Pork and Teriyaki Chicken with Pineapple. We don’t skimp on the sides either, with delicious options like our Oriental Vegetables, Sweet N’ Spicy Thai Noodles, Mandarin Orange & Toasted Almond Salad and Tropical Fruit Medley. Pair the menu with Hawaiian themed treats like leis and poolside fun!  

Mexican Fiesta

Who doesn’t love a fiesta? Give your residents an excuse to let loose and have a little fun with a Mexican Fiesta, complete with sombreros, piñatas and maybe even some margaritas. Our South of the Border Menu would complement this theme perfectly, serving up Mexican inspired favorites like Veggie or Meat Chili, a Chicken and Beef Taco Bar, Mexicali Vegetable Medley, Spanish Rice and of course, our famous freshly baked Corn Bread. 

Little Italy

Take your residents on a trip to Italy with this heartwarming Little Italy menu! It’s loaded with all your favorite Italian comfort foods like Ziti with Marinara, Italian Meatballs, Sweet Italian Sausage with Peppers & Onions, Chicken Parmesan (or Eggplant), a Fresh Garden Salad and Italian Bread & Butter. Mama Mia! We recommend playing Italian music in the background, and serving wine to pair with the meal for guests 21 & up. 

Bingo & Brunch

Village Green Apartments hosted a Bingo & Brunch for their residents this past spring, and we absolutely loved the idea! We offer a variety of Breakfast Buffets that would work well with this theme, including The Breakfast Burrito, The Eye Opener (with delicious breakfast favorites like eggs, corned beef hash and homefries), and The Sun Rise (with pancakes, French toast, waffles, ham, bacon, sausage and more). Oh, and all our brunch options come with coffee to give you that morning pick-me-up you need!
