Serendipity loves a good theme party- especially when it incorporates seasonal favorites with a few unexpected twists. A lot of our clients have shifted towards more casual, laid-back affairs. Recently, one of our favorite themes has been the Chuckwagon Wild West theme! This style of western catering is authentic to Colorado and has steadily grown in popularity. Here is a round-up of a few ideas we incorporate in our catering:

Western Catering Specials

Being a green catering company, we love to upcycle when we can. For centerpieces, we have used cowboy boots or large painted cans with flowers. We also love the effect of round cacti or air plants in a large cylinder vase. Bandanas make affordably cute table runners too.

For extra seating, we have used hay barrels covered with blankets. Bonus if you have a fire pit to set these around.

Old timey games like horseshoes and darts are fun for folks of all ages.

A watering hole station is a must for the outlaws of the Wild West. Serve lemonade, cold beers, and whiskey cocktails.Freshly brewed, ice-cold lemonade.

The menu is big and bold to feed the lot. BBQ sandwiches, coleslaw, cornbread, watermelon…


Speaking of watermelon… Serendipity has been loving watermelon stations for summer events this year. We cut big slices of the summery fruit and offer three tasting salts such as Himalayan sea salt, spicy chili lime, and cinnamon sugar. Guests have loved this fun addition to a classic slice of juicy melon.

S’mores over the fire anyone? Our clients have loved the playfulness that comes with a make-your-own S’mores bar. Other ideas we have used for sweets have been chocolate bourbon cake or individual peach cobblers.

Just wanted to let you know that our Open House was a great success! Everyone arrived on time and set up was seamless. The food was excellent- several of our guests had been to some of your catered events previously and were very pleased that we used you. The service was excellent and the presentation was also lovely. Considering the short notice that we gave you we were very pleased indeed! Thanks again” – C.G. | Open House
