3 of Our Favorite Catering Ideas From the Correspondents’ Dinner

Posted on Posted in Blog

Selecting a catering company for a major corporate event or meeting can be a daunting task. You want to “wow” attendees with unique fare, but also, provide enough options so that everyone is satisfied.

Food and drink is a great way to get attendees to remember your event, and BizBash recently highlighted numerous experimental catering ideas at the recent White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner that we can learn from. 

  1. Adult lemonade stand.
    Timeand People magazines got together for this year’s event and set up an adult lemonade stand, providing a sophisticated twist on a summertime classic. Both publications took it a step further and offered political-themed cocktails, such as “Primary Punch” and a vodka-based drink “Delegate.”
  2. Unique hors d’oeuvres display
    At your next event, take a page out of The New Yorker’s playbook. The publication served hors d’oeuvres on trays featuring recent covers of their magazine, providing a great branding idea for your next event.
  3. Make-your-own Bloody Mary
    “Make-your-own Bloody Mary” has quickly become a staple of brunch across the country, but you can take it a step further and allow your guests to get in on the action. The Distilled Spirits Council allowed guests to pour their drink, choosing from three types of tomato juice and a variety of vodkas and garnishes.
