In the fall, people think about leaves changing colors, school supplies, Halloween costumes, and comfortable knit sweaters. Fall is beautiful, and it’s a great time to get married. Couples tying the knot this fall have a lot of ideas to consider when hiring wedding catering in Atlanta. Fall is a time for warm ciders, harvested fruits and vegetables, and comfort food. Based on this, here are some great catering ideas to consider.
When it’s cold outside, why not treat your guests to something warm and comforting. Serve the soup in individual serving cups during cocktail hour or as part of a sit-down dinner. Couples can choose some of their favorite soups to serve. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a hearty chili, tomato soup and “grown-up” grilled cheese sandwiches, vegetable soup, carrot-coconut soup, or butternut squash soup.
Salad is a popular option for fall weddings. It’s a great side dish to a meat, chicken, or fish entree. In the fall, however, people can dress up the salad with different fixings. For example, try adding an aged cheddar, walnuts or pumpkin seeds, grapes, and figs. Another great option includes apples, walnuts, Stilton cheese, and thin slices of prosciutto. Try pairing the salad with a maple-balsamic dressing or cranberry vinaigrette.
Pasta is a great comfort food that leaves guests feeling filled and satisfied. In the fall, consider trying a wild mushroom risotto or a pumpkin or butternut squash ravioli. Not only is it a great vegetarian option to serve, but it allows guests to enjoy some of the great flavors of the season.
Nothing quite says fall like a warm pie or cobbler. Some of the popular fall pie flavors to choose from include apple, pecan, or pumpkin; however, people can choose any flavors that they prefer. Serve it with homemade whipped cream or ice cream for a great dessert at the wedding reception. Rather than serving a slice of pie, consider having mini pies or turnovers for people to enjoy.
