Flavorful Fall Food Favorites To Spice Up Your Autumn Gatherings

Brown, Yellow, and Red Leaves that have fallen in Autumn

With cooler weather on the horizon and the early return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte comes all the comforts of fall. Warm boots, fuzzy flannels, oversized sweaters, and beanies mean it’s time to bundle up and chow down on flavorful fall foods. 

Outside of the typical fare you’d find during the fall months which includes staples such as Pumpkin Pie, Apple Cider and Hot Chocolate, we’ve collected some unique and lesser-known dishes we’re sure you’ll want to serve at your fall wedding, office party, or Halloween event!

  • Butternut Squash Soup – A soup so rich and delicious it’s like a warm blanket for your soul (and stomach).
  • Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls – This unique take on cinnamon rolls is sure to delight pumpkin lovers and sweet tooths alike.
  • Spaghetti Squash – A healthy alternative to traditional pasta, the spaghetti squash can be roasted and eaten straight from the gourd with a fork or shredded and plated with your traditional red sauce of choice.
  • Sweet Potato Pie – While Pumpkin and Apple may reign supreme, sweet potato offers a savory deep-yet-sweet fall flavor that can’t be ignored.
  • Streusel Apple Bread – What more can be said about apple streusel in bread form other than Y-U-M? Pair this with Nutella or Caramel and a glass of hot cider and thank us later.
  • Zucchini Bread – We’re not sure which genius decided to take zucchini and turn it into some kind of magical, cinnamon-y bread but we thank them for their contribution.
  • Baklava – If you’ve never had baklava, you’re missing out. Made from of multiple layers of thin and crispy filo dough held together with sticky sweet honey and chopped walnuts, it’s simple complexity is one of the lesser known fall foods to try.

Staten Island Party Rentals proudly offers all of the tables, chairs, tents, canopies, and more to make your fall party one your guests will never forget.

Plan A Wonderful Staten Island Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah Party

The day your son or daughter has their bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah is an important occasion for them and for Jewish parents. Adulthood comes with many changes, not only in age but also, in ability and maturity. This day is to honor your child’s first step into becoming an adult. As for any party, try to keep in mind your child’s personality to create an event that will honor them effectively. Planning a perfect Bar Mitzvah on Staten Island should include these careful selections.

Some Aspects to Consider:

Choosing the Date and Invitations

Most bar mitzvah celebrations take place directly after the ceremony at the Synagogue. When selecting the date, consider if you are able to have the party on the day of the actual Bar/Bat mitzvah (the day of their birthday). Furthermore, in many communities it has become customary to celebrate a bar or bat mitzvah the same way people would a wedding. For this reason, you may want to look into reserving a block of hotels for any out of town guests who are invited to your son or daughter’s special day.

Booking the Party Venue and Entertainment

Pick a location that will hold all of your guests comfortably and lavishly. If the day does not fall on Shabbat, it is natural that music and dancing will take place alongside a festive meal. For this reason, a dancefloor and DJ or live music should be considered while in the process of selecting the best place. If you choose to have live music played by a band that day, it would be wise to choose a larger location to handle the noise compared to music from a DJ.

Food and Beverages

For this night especially the selection of food is optimum. Depending on your family’s specific dietary choices you will want to select a menu that encompasses them and will also feed your guests sufficiently. Another thing to consider is the ages of all guests in attendance. You will want to keep some options if anyone decides to bring their young baby with them. Otherwise, your son or daughter can help select the menu based on their tastes, while keeping with tradition as well.

What Should You Do About Seating For Your Party?

When it comes to throwing a party in the comfort of your own backyard, you almost limit yourself to the seating and décor that you already have at your disposal.

Three Tips To Throwing A Great Valentine’s Day Party

There exists almost a schism between the people of the world when it comes to Valentine’s Day. People either love it or hate it and there doesn’t seem to be any in-between. It’s considered almost a pseudo-major holiday, where all of the stores around us sell an abundance of things related to the day. One of the most popular things to do on Valentine’s Day is to throw or attend a Valentine’s Day themed party. If you’re throwing one yourself, where do you start? These tips below might give you the helping hand you need.

1) Serve Holiday Related Food

It’s one thing to just throw a party, but it’s another thing entirely to throw a party the right way. If you’re throwing a Valentine’s Day party then you should tie the colors and theme of the holiday into the food. Have vanilla cupcakes with red frosting, heart shaped cookies that are both whole and broken into two pieces. By incorporating the theme into the food, you add another level to your party that you wouldn’t have had otherwise.

2) Decorate Accordingly

Now that you’ve covered the food, you’re going to need to work on the atmosphere of either your own home or the venue you’ve rented out for your party. Lacy table runners and rose centerpieces go a long way in terms of Valentine’s Day decorations. You could also get yourself some wall hangers that resemble hearts and hang them on the wall. Heart shaped balloons that can hang out around the ceiling are another great way to improve the look of your party.

3) Give Out Goodie Bags

Everybody loves goodie bags and party favors. A good way to ensure your party is remembered the way you want it to be is to provide your guests with goodie bags. There are endless options as to what you could put in the bags. Little boxes of heart candy, a DVD of a corny romance movie, anything you can think of!

Throwing A Pajama Party Promises Fun And Excitement For Your Guests

Everybody loves being comfortable, and everyone loves wearing pajamas. Pajamas are not only comfortable but they’re also stylish. You can get pajamas in a variety of different designs from different television shows and movies, as well as any cool pattern you can think of! Some of the fondest memories I have from when I was younger was putting on my pajamas and heading to my friend’s house for a pajama party.

Pajama parties don’t need to end at childhood, though, they make pajamas in all different sizes for everyone. Throwing a pajama party for adults could be fun and memorable, but where do you start? Think about the food you’d like to serve first. People usually wear pajamas in the morning when they eat breakfast so consider serving breakfast foods such as french toast and waffles. The drinks you serve can be breakfast themed alcoholic drinks, like mimosas and screwdrivers.

You can turn a pajama party into any themed party. If you wanted to host a movie night, you could make that a pajama-themed movie night. Throwing a pajama-themed game night would ensure that everyone is comfortable and no one has to take too long getting ready! If you wanted to go full on old school, you could even have your pajama party be an overnight get together where everyone sleeps in the same room on the floor. All in all, any kind of pajama party you’d like to throw, it’s guaranteed to be a good time.

Three Tips For Planning A Winter Wedding

nakwyyh849o-quentin-dr

When it comes to getting married, there’s a lot of planning that goes into having the best day you can. You need to pick a venue, make a guest list, hire a caterer, and taste many different flavors of cakes. Although, tasting as much cake as you can seems like the opposite of a problem.

If you’re considering having your wedding in the winter season, there are a few things you should be keeping in mind. Check out these three tips that if followed, will ensure you have a flawless winter wonderland wedding.

Don’t Forget That Things Are More Expensive In The Winter

A lot of people don’t know this about winter but the prices for most things go up when the temperature goes down. Flights become more expensive, the prices of hotel rooms shoot up, and florists inflate their prices to cover the struggle of having flowers in the cold season. If you’re planning on having a destination winter wedding, or just a winter wedding in general, be prepared to spend more than usual.

Integrate Winter Themes Into Your Décor

After you’ve picked the venue for your wedding and reception, there are still loads to do. You’ll have to pick the centerpieces that go on the tables, the party favors that your guests will take away, and the overall feel for the environment. If you’re having a winter wedding, you might want to consider incorporating the season into your theme and decorations. You could even save some money by creating paper snowflakes yourself at home and using them to decorate your venue.

Take The Harsh Winter Weather Into Account

Couples, more often than not, prefer to have their actual ceremony outdoors. If your wedding is going to take place in the winter and you’re having the ceremony outdoors then you should be taking the weather into account. When you pick out your bridesmaid dresses, are you thinking about how warm they’ll be? What about your guests who will be sitting outside watching you tie the knot? You might want to consider renting a tent or a canopy to help keep your wedding party warm. Sure, you’ll have a beautiful looking ceremony, but at what cost?

Three Tips For Throwing A Great Tea Party

regndznrpt8-anete-lusina

Most people out there in the world enjoy drinking tea. It’s bigger in Europe than anywhere else, but that doesn’t mean people elsewhere in the world aren’t also enjoying tea. One of the most popular types of parties that you can throw is the tea party. What is a tea party exactly? It’s actually a little more involved than it sounds. A tea party is a gathering of your close friends and colleagues where you enjoy tea and appetizer-size snacks and enjoy each other’s company.

One of these parties is usually on the fancier side. If you attend one of these parties you might get to enjoy the clean aesthetic that comes with a tea party. If you’re planning on throwing your own tea party, check out these three tips on how you can make your party great,

Kick Off Your Party With A Tasting

The great thing about tea is the crazy amount of flavors you have to choose from. You can go classic lemon flavor, earl grey, or you can even choose a flavor that’s more fruity in taste. You can kick your party off with a small tasting of a variety of flavors so everyone can find out which tea is perfect for them, without having to commit to an entire glass that might go wasted.

Serve Themed Treats

There is nothing cooler than themed food at a party. If you attend a Halloween party, you might be indulging on a bowl full of spooky punch. Even at a Christmas party, you’ll see gingerbread cookies waiting to be eaten on a tray. Serving themed treats that go along with a tea party is a surefire way of making your party a hit. One option for you is Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Tea Bag Cookies, which you can read the recipe for HERE.

Use Teacups As Bowls For Candy And Snacks

You’re throwing a party and you have way too many teacups and fancy plates for the amount of guests that will be in attendance. Don’t store those cups away, put them to good use! Use your extra cups as serving bowls for candies or snacks that people can snack on as your party goes on. Jellybeans are a prime example of a party snack that will not only look great displayed on the table, but is also delicious.

And If you’re just looking to have your party catered to take all of the workload off of yourself, ask for our catering suggestions. You won’t be disappointed!

Four Easy To Make Hors D’oeuvres For Your Party

rygidtavhkq-dave-lastovskiy

Not everybody loves to attend parties, or rather throw them. Everyone, however, loves eating hors d’oeuvres. If you don’t already know, hors d’oeuvres are small, almost snack like in size, portions of food that are served during the early parts of a party. Usually, prior to dinner, these delicious edibles are designed to be eaten by hand, either with a toothpick or with your own fingers.

Which hors d’oeuvres do you choose to be served at your party? If you have to make them yourself, or even if you just want delicious food served, you might want to stay a little more on the simple side to ensure enough food can be made within a certain time frame. Check out these four easy to make hors d’oeuvres you could serve at your party,

Brown Sugar Wrapped Pigs In A Blanket

Everybody loves the classic pig in a blanket. Something about miniature hot dogs wrapped in dough puts people in a good mood. This recipe replaces that dough with bacon and then adds even more flavor to it with another secret ingredient.

Salami & Cream Cheese Bites

Whether it’s meats wrapped in cheese or cheese wrapped in meats, people will scarf it down like it’s nobody’s business. This particular recipe calls for only two ingredients and can be made in a flash if you run out of everything else.

Chicken Parmesan Slider

Have you ever asked yourself why such a fancy meal like Chicken Parmesan doesn’t come in a quick, more convenient size? Me neither! A bite size chicken parm is exactly what your party needs to give it a unique feel. People will be talking about your party for dozens of days.

Chicken & Waffle Sliders

Another addition to the slider family is the chicken and waffle sliders. Chicken and waffles are known to the world as being delicious and now you can serve it to your guests in bite size form.
