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!

Congratulations to Kara from South Boston!

Kara is the lucky winner of our Clambake to Travel monthly drawing. When Kara arrives at our kitchen in Pawtucket, RI, she can expect to take home a traditional New England Clambake in its very own pot. 

The take-home pot holds a full meal of lobster, steamers, mussels, chourico, corn on the cob, red bliss potatoes & onions. 

We are quite certain that Kara and her family or friends will enjoy digging into this DIY clambake dinner.

In case you didn't already know, each month we hold a "Win-A-Clambake" drawing.  This month, Kara's name was chosen from the entries we received..

do it yourself clambake

We think she will be quite pleased to find out how easy it is to prepare our clambakes to travel!

You might not believe how super easy it is to prepare a Do-It-Yourself Clambake in your home, backyard, tailgate event, or at your campsite:

The first thing you do is add water to the pot we provide. Then, you place the entire clambake pot on your stove top. 

 That's it!

In less than one hour, you and your guests can enjoy their own Traditional Old-Fashioned Clambake.

You could become next month's winner.  
Simply visit the "Win a Clambake" page to register.
Please, feel free to enter every month.  The more the merrier.    

Good Luck!

Subject: thank you  

To all of you at B & M...  

I cannot thank you enough for the most amazing service and food at our wedding.

Yesterday was the most perfect day and I must say, the food was a big part of that. The setting up and taking down assistance was key.

I didn't have to worry about a thing.

You all have been extremely professional and patient with my neverending questions, concerns, and emails.   

You're all class acts and I would choose you guys over and over again.

Everyone commented on how delicious the food was, and we agree.  

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!
