Fire up Fourth of July festivities

Family picnics, grilling out, and fireworks are traditions at most Independence Day celebrations. Last year may have left a void in your party, with friends and fireworks missing from the day, but plans are in full swing for July 4, 2021, albeit with some careful planning to keep guests safe.

Relaxed pandemic protocols are making more traditional activities possible, but many are still seeking options for protecting the vulnerable and accommodating those who are still uncomfortable with groups. For your backyard bash, catering is a great option for maximum enjoyment and safety for everyone at your event.

Caterers are gearing up for high summer and July Fourth demand, and many are getting creative with serving and set-up to minimize congregating at food tables and having multiple hands touching serving utensils. Catering your July Fourth party allows you to enjoy your event with less stress related to food preparation, serving protocol, and guest activities.

Special Moments Catering offers a full BBQ catering service for your Fourth of July cook-out or event, with options including hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken breast, steaks, and St. Louis-style ribs. Complete your spread with hors d’oeuvres, snack foods, and desserts.

Keep your traditions alive and safe with creative ideas

  • Spread your buffet table out so guests are spaced as they make their choices. For additional safety, use serving staff or provide individual serving utensils for each guest.
  • Use several food stations and consider mobile stations to prevent crowding of guests at food or dessert tables.
  • Set up smaller tables for family members with snack options provided at individual tables.
  • Consider serving snack items such as chips and pretzels in individual bags instead of bowls.
  • Compartmentalize beverages at different stations or in different coolers that are tagged so guests can quickly find their choice. Consider multiple coolers in different locations for your most popular beverages.

Don’t give up on your Fourth of July traditions this year. Contact Special Moments for full-service table and buffet catering and a wide variety of options for everything from casual backyard barbecues to formal events and weddings that will make summer 2021 special.

With Many Thanks!

Thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful job you all did for Kevin and Jeanette’s wedding on October 4th at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church Parish Center in Aurora! Everything went so smoothly and we were very pleased with how things turned out. Thanks again for helping us provide our family with a wedding to remember for a lifetime!
