Catering Central was the team we hired for our Christmas Party in Indian Creek, Redwood Shores. The food was incredibly superb! Marcos prepared a delectable menu per our request for traditional Christmas fare, and we were surprised to discover how truly sumptuous each dish was! Our guests have been raving ever since!
Word also has it that our corporate office has heard of the success of the event brought on by this impressive array of gastronomic delights. Working with Marcos was a bree...
Your event’s invitation is the initial expectation your guests will have about your party. You know what they say – you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. The invitation should be relevant to the event, capturing your personality as well as the vibe of the party. We have some tips for setting up your event, via your invitation.
Make the information clear and accurate
Are the right time, date, day, address, contact details and dress code made clear on the invitation? Have you specified if the event is brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert or hors d’oeuvres?
Have a limited color scheme
Unless it’s directly related to the event, steer clear of rainbow and willy-nilly color schemes. An aesthetically pleasing invitation uses color with purpose, visually providing mood for the event ahead of time.
Choose a sensible font
Comic Sans was made for comics. Helvetica is a widely used and completely appropriate font for conveying information on an invitation, though you might like to use something more decorative for the event title. Stick to two fonts – maximum.
Be clear about timing
What time does it start? Is it OK to be fashionably late, or would being late be frowned upon? From surprise party, to wedding, to milestone birthday – there are very different social expectations about timing. Also, when does it end? Being clear about this may prevent you from having a house full of people at 2am when you’d rather be sleeping.
We truly hope you enjoy your event. As always, if you’re looking for a caterer, we’ve got you covered. Call us today on (650) 961-3300 to talk about your vision for the party you’re planning.
Client Holiday Party Success!!

We use Marcos and Catering Central for 100+ person company lunches every so often, and our employees always have good things to say! Marcos does a consistently quality job, on-time, and the price is right. We have ordered something different every time, and it's all been good. If you have a group to feed, they will work with you from menu selection through billing, definitely recommend!
Company Event is a Success!!
I've had Catering Central do two events here at Tesla. Marcos went above and beyond to make sure that both of my events were a success. His food also matched their excellent service throughout the whole planning - from picking out the menu, to working with our budget, to the day of the event and even afterwards. Enzo also was very professional and was on top of things on the day of.
I can't wait to use them again for other events.

Quality Food and Service!
Came across Catering Central website while looking for caterers to bring lunch to our office every week. Our employees are typically very picky but Marcos' meets or exceeds our expectations every time. Everything is always fresh and hot. We only have about 40 or less employees but the portions are generous and it's nice to have friendly people delivering who make sure we are satisfied with our order. I highly recommend Catering Central for any event!

Marcos and central catering provided a fantastic spread for our wedding reception. We were looking for a no fuss, tasty garden party and he delivered on all counts. The food was fantastic and servers he brought in to man the bar and pass through with the food were great, personable guys.
