Since the beginning of times, Quinceanera celebrations have been known for either serving a three-course meal or giving the guests a buffet-style dining experience.
Right after, we welcome the Quince cake to then, proceed and take over the dance floor.
Well, times have changed and so have the rules of Quinceanera catering!
Take a look at the latest trends we’ve seen within the last couple of years when attending similar special events:
Candy Bars and Dessert Tables Have Become a Must!
Besides the main menu, most girls offered a dessert or candy table sometimes according to their Quinceanera theme. These tables are up from the moment guests are welcome into the reception and until they ran out of items. Depending on your budget you can choose to pay for a one-time setup or have staff refill each station.
Exotic Menus Are Extremely Popular!
Mexican themed Quinceaneras were a hit last year that heavily popularized a ‘tacos, tamales and aguas frescas’ type of menu! This year you can delight your guests with a Japanese or Indian menu with or without having a themed pertaining to that culture in particular.
Welcome Vegan and Vegetarians!
In the past, the number of guests who could possibly not eat meat or had specific dietary restrictions was small. Nowadays, people are choosing a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle at a young age which means several Quinceaneras may follow a certain food regimen hence they will offer their guests variety during dinner.
Food Trucks Are Now a Thing!
Whether it’s for the main course or as a treat to their guests, Quinceaneras are including food trucks at their outdoor events. In N Out, Whataburger, you name it! If it’s trending among their squad and their parents agreed to do so, the food truck is in!
Cupcakes Have Made a Comeback!
Cupcakes were extremely popular back in 2014, Quinceaneras loved the idea of offering their guests these yummy treats. But as soon as the price increased, the craze decreased. However, it seems with all the additional services the girls are currently implementing, serving cupcakes is a faster and less time-consuming way to serve.
After all, venues and bakeries charge a setting up and cutting the cake fee so perhaps the extra money you spend on a few more cupcakes will be similar to what you will pay for these services. Definitely #FoodForThought
