Appetizers & Starter Menus

When catering in Los Angeles these delightful bitefuls are either stationary or tray passed. We can do our ever popular Market Table with breads and spreads, fresh and dried fruits, local and imported cheeses, bruschetta and crostini, or petite bites depending on the size of your crowd. Stationary platters start around $79.00, and individual appetizers start at $3. each and top out around $6.00 for the fancy ones. Most clients do a combination of both.

Our Most Popular party Menus

The gift of longevity and experience has enabled us to create a formula that works every time when creating personal catering menu collections! Of course, we're flexible, but these menus are tried and true, and our fool proof formula stands superior. Our clients keep coming back for a little "Fresh and Healthy" and "Tuscany Table" spreads, making them the most favorited menu combinations. These menus are reasonably priced at $29.00 per person, and available year round. We can always mix and match to suit your palate, the seasons and all your catering needs. The last couple of pages are pure vegan!

It's day 9 of #13YearsofPapillons and it's also Friday, so let's put a little freaky in our #FlashbackFriday with this #TheNightmareBeforeChristmas themed #Halloweenparty, hands-down our most insane party to-date (in the best way)! .
We have a regular client who, every Halloween for the past 3 years, has hired our team to design and plan their annual family-friendly bash. Our client likes to gather with all of their friends at least once a year at their home, perfectly made for hosting parties, in #TolucaLake.
.
This family is a big fan of Disneyland, especially the #HauntedMansion, which was the theme for 2017, so why not take inspiration from Disneyland itself and throw a #HauntedMansionHoliday themed party?! And that's exactly what we did -- combining elements like #JackandSally with red & white candy cane stripes, and Jack's #SandyClaws list, the man-eating Christmas wreath set against the mansion's famous wallpaper, and terrified gingerbread cookies.
.
Grown-up guests received tarot readings, and there was even real snow for the kids! From the set-design (brought to life by backlotpartyprops) to the on-theme catering & sweets (thank you Jennie Cooks Catering & Plant Based Parties + Sugar Studio + Steffinnie Phrommany) to the giant glowing balloon orbs floating over the pool (thanks Balloonzilla), this #overthetop event will never, ever be forgotten. *More photos on our Facebook post!*
