Outdoor Celebrations: 12th Street Catering will help you host safe outdoor events

April 22, 2021

The temperatures are rising, and with summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your next outdoor event! The team at 12th Street Catering, and our partner venues, are here to help you safely enjoy the great outdoors with delicious, customizable meals.

Each event this year will be a celebration of the world moving closer to post-pandemic life, and we are so excited to celebrate with you! Events will be more intimate, more exciting, and more delectable — as we enjoy each other’s company safely.

Enjoy innovative meals safely

We love summery picnic-style menus, and we’re elevating them this year by introducing Middle Eastern and North African ingredients, like halloumi, harissa, za’atar, and dukkah.

Our 2021 menus will take you beyond the familiar fare of hummus and pita with dishes like our Harissa Grilled Chicken with pomegranate cucumber relish or our Petite Grilled Lamb Chops with lemony mint chermoula and roasted summer vegetables with dukkah.

Individually packaged options will remain popular throughout 2021. We will continue to innovate with creative solutions to make sure you have elegant and customizable options.

The 12th Street Catering team will work with each client to customize their event to ensure the safety of their guests. You can expect curated boxed entrées from our drop-off catering menu and small-plate serving style at events. Hors d’oeuvres stations transformed into individually packaged items will also be available, whether it’s a crudite shooter, petite grain bowls, or an individual antipasto plate.

Venue inspiration

Need venue ideas? 12th Street Catering is the preferred and exclusive caterer for a variety of unique locations across Philadelphia. Here are five one-of-a-kind venues perfect for your outdoor event.

Mann Center for the Performing Arts

The iconic Philadelphia music venue, with a 22-acre campus, is open to event rentals! Each of their five event spaces is incredibly unique for events from weddings, private parties, corporate meetings, pre-concert dinners, cocktail receptions, galas, and more! Get married on the stage, or reserve one of their private tents with a perfect view of the Philadelphia skyline.

Independence Seaport Museum

Located right on the Delaware River waterfront with views of the city and water, the Museum is perfect for history and maritime buffs and beyond. Many balconies (with an indoor ballroom that seats over 300 guests) surround the four-story museum — excellent for any size event, big or small!

Appleford Estate

Beautiful gardens, historic rooms, and incredible patios abound at this Main Line venue. Choose one of the many gardens for your cocktail reception or a wedding ceremony, or head to the gorgeous tented terrace for dinners, meetings, or any reception! The indoor spaces of the house are also perfect for pre-party activities and smaller events.

The Highlands

Forty-four acres of rolling hills and beautifully landscaped gardens surround this elegant, two-century-old Georgian-style mansion. Utilize the beautiful mansion with 15-foot ceilings and sunny rooms, in addition to the formal garden spaces. Have your celebration inside one of the gorgeous rooms on the first floor, including a grand staircase for the perfect ceremony descent. Or, you can use one of the covered terraces or gardens to celebrate, surrounded by the natural beauty on site.

Sculpture Courtyard

Funky indoor and outdoor space located in the Olde Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia offers a unique and bohemian vibe for your next event. The courtyard and patio area are perfect for cocktail receptions, wedding ceremonies, or artistic events, while the indoor space has a rustic, industrial look with a built-in bar.
