Christmas in July

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Welcome to Summer in Philadelphia, finally hot and humid as we know it should be.  Should we sneak away to the beach or hike in the mountains?  No we’re Caterers and that means planning for Christmas and Holiday parties really begins in July.

Diverse Caterings Commissary is surrounded by great local farms and the produce this season   tempered by the rains and overall dismal skies in June, is ripening and coming to market.  Big beautiful blueberries, ears of sweet fresh corn and finally some Jersey Tomatoes.  When the Holiday Parties begin in December we will still be enjoying the fruits of our local farm but in mini Pot Pies and as sauteed medley of Root Vegetables,  tastings of Butternut Squash and Wild Musroom Lasagna and hearty winter soups.

Planning a Holiday Party can be lots  fun whether with a committee at your workplace or volunteering with a local organization, to help with Holiday meals for the less fortunate.  We are happy to contribute our services to The Delaware Valley Legacy Fund and their Toy Benefit , save the date!

Fri, Dec 4
Toy – 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Marketplace Design Center, 2400 Market Street, Philadelphia
– Annual winter fundraiser for DVLF and toy drive for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s HIV/AIDS unit

So if it gets a little to hot for you in July, turn your air conditiong on low dig out your Menorah,  or your Christmas Tree, and put together a list of friends, family and coworkers that you want to spend some quality time with and what makes them happy.

As far as the  planning for interesting small plate food offerings or the Carribean Holiday Theme Party, and holiday cocktails call us at Diverse Catering and Event Design to plan a party that helps everyone enjoy an eclectic fun experience.
