While we’re perfectionist about what’s coming out of the kitchen, our superior catering experience doesn’t end with the food. At Creative Catering we literally bring a full-service experience to the table.

Table Setup

As a full-service caterer we can provide complete table setup, including table coverings, your choice of paper or linen napkins, silverware, glassware, china dinner plates, salad plates, coffee cups, and more. And after the meal, our uniformed buffet personnel will provide complete cleanup of the serving stations and dining area.

We offer a full-service solution from food and beverage service to event set-up and staffing.

Table setup and decorating often go hand-in-hand. When it comes to dining areas, we can provide elegant tableware arrangements to accent your event’s theme. Beyond the dining tables, we can also coordinate serving tables, dessert bars, and punch / beverage stations in perfect harmony with your chosen décor.

Food Catering

Beyond the table setup and the decorations, what our service really comes down to is the food. At Creative Catering our certified Chef De Cuisine offers a wide selection of modern menus, ensuring a flexible meal selection with distinct attention placed on portion size, taste, appearance, and event type. We really do serve it all — from chicken marsala with angel rice pilaf to sloppy joes with potato salad — our menu choices are diverse.

Modified Buffet is our standard service. Guests are invited by our staff to the buffet to enjoy the various meal offerings you selected.
