Summer & Outdoor Cocktail Party Ideas

Nothing makes a cocktail party more fun than hosting it outdoors. If you are planning a summer cocktail party outdoors, turn to Parts & Labour Catering for help in making your event as exciting as it can possibly be.

Outdoor Party Choices

When your event is being held outdoors, you may want something a little different from ordinary cocktail party fare, which typically consists of hors d’oeuvres or finger foods. Some choices you may want to consider instead include:

  • BBQ sandwiches or sliders
  • Hamburgers and hot dogs
  • Cold cut sandwich platter
  • Food catering station

We know there are other challenges such as protecting food from the elements and keeping pests away. As such, we take extra care to see that food is well protected and served at precisely the right temperature, ensuring your guests’ total satisfaction.

Perfect Summertime Options

When hosting a summer cocktail party, the main thing you are probably concerned about is serving “cool” dishes. A few that would be perfect for your summer cocktail party include:

  • Fresh watermelon
  • Shrimp cocktail
  • Sushi
  • Cold cut platters
  • Fruit and vegetable trays

Customized for your Theme

Here at Parts & Labour Catering, we recognize that you’ll want different food for a cocktail party at the beach than you would for one held in your own backyard. Regardless of whether your party is formal or informal, we can help you choose exactly the right food items. We’ll follow that up with the right napkins, silverware, and plates to ensure every detail is precisely right. Please speak with one of our catering specialists who will help you work out all the details.
