Weddings aren’t the only events we at Gourmet Bay cater. Holiday parties are near and dear to our hearts. This holiday season let Gourmet Bay Catering take the work out of planning and cooking.
Here are a few fun holiday ideas for parties.
The ugly sweater party- This themed party has gotten more popular each month. People go out in search of the most ridiculous, gaudy, embellished Xmas sweater they can find. Everyone dons the sweaters and usually there is a prize for best male and female sweater. The perfect menu for this party would be passed soup sippers so that everyone can still...
Winter weddings in Charleston are a bit different than most places. The average temperature isn’t freezing and I seriously doubt it’ll snow, but having a winter wedding can still be festive. Matching your décor to the outdoors is a way to bring the winter season into your big day. Using bare branches, pine cones and a rustic look for your décor will set the winter mood.
Have your menu reflect the cooler weather outside by having a s’mores bar, warm mulled wine or hot chocolate bar, and serving passed soup sippers. The reception meal can include a roast with seasonal vegetables...
Food & Football- Apart from food, the biggest Thanksgiving traditions are football and parades. The traditional American Thanksgiving football game was usually between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers, but as football has become more popular, there are now more games on Thanksgiving day. The tradition of Thanksgiving parades goes back to the early 20th century, when people began to associate Thanksgiving with the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
Family- Some people choose to express their gratitude by giving back to the community. Volunteer activities, such...
Getting hitched in the South is a bit different than getting married in other places. Here are some fun Southern Wedding Traditions:
Handkerchief- Many mothers give their bride-to-be daughters a handkerchief to hold at the weddings ceremony. These handkerchiefs can be passed down from generation to generation. It is said that farmers believed that a bride’s wedding day tears were lucky and a lil rain would bring great crops. The “hankie” is still a much loved tradition today.
Grooms Cake- A gift of a cake from the bride to the groom has been a tradition since the Victorian era. ...
Tis the season for planning parties! Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are all on the horizon and if you walk into any store you’ll feel the holiday presence. No need to stress, Gourmet Bay Catering has some great ideas for planning the perfect party.
First off, decide what type of event you want to throw and set a budget. If you want a small intimate dinner party with only friends and family you can splurge on food and cocktails and spend less on décor. Have your catering staff pass appetizers and have a family style dinner. You will spend less on the serving staff by having...

So you’ve waited for this moment all your life. He asks you, you say yes and now you get to plan the perfect wedding celebration. What do you think would happen if you stood back and let the man in your life plan the special day?
Here are a few things that might go down:
Manly menu containing a lot of pork, beef, and seafood. You can bet that you’d have steak as an appetizer, an entrée, and maybe even a night snack.
Beers not cocktails. Do men even drink cocktails? Letting your man pick your booze might involve craft beer pairings, a shot as the toast, and maybe a keg to wash...
