2016 Hope Hospice Invitational

Every September it is our pleasure to work with Hope Hospice & Palliative Care of Rhode Island on their annual Golf Invitational held on Sakonnet Golf Club’s gorgeous grounds. This tournament is one of their biggest fundraisers of the year and for the past five years we have had the pleasure of working closely with this organization to cater the event.

We took a different approach to the menu this year in comparison to the tournaments we’ve catered in the past. We designed a menu composed entirely of passed appetizers and passed sliders for the golfers to nosh on post-invitational.

Winter Wine Tasting

Do you ever have so much fun doing something you started to think “How can I do this all the time? How can I make this my every day job?” We have, and thus Easy Entertaining was born.

Private dinners with small, intimate groups, are our FAVORITE kind of event to help host. They allow us to get really creative with menus and pairings, along with plating and execution. Events like these remind us why we wanted to start catering in the first place.

Last night we took part in our first Wine Dinner of 2016. Another Providence small business owner, and friend of ours, came to us with this awesome idea for her staff holiday party – a progressive wine dinner with five micro courses! Needless to say we we’re all over that idea.

Alyson & Peter

Is there anything more fitting than a farm-to-fork catering company catering your wedding on a beautiful Connecticut farm? The answer is no, probably not.

Not only was last weekend’s couple awesome to work with, but so was their venue. Alyson and Peter said their “I do’s” on Tyrone Farm in Pomfret Connecticut, overlooking one of the most breathtaking landscapes we’ve ever seen.  Continue reading “Alyson & Peter”

A Very Special Baby Shower

Hi everyone! Please accept our apologies on going MIA for a few weeks – we’ve been crazy busy gearing up for wedding season (so many fun blogs to come – stay tuned!)

In the meantime, we wanted to share some shots from an extremely special Baby Shower we we’re honored to host for our friends over at The Local Bouquet.

While the story behind why this baby shower was so special is not ours to share, trust us when we tell you that this shower was very much filled with happy thoughts, joy, and love. Continue reading “A Very Special Baby Shower”

HHCRI Gala Kick Off

We have the pleasure of working very closed with Home and Hospice Care of Rhode Island each year on multiple fundraising opportunities, meetings, and employee appreciation events. For those of you that aren’t aware, Home and Hospice Care is a non profit organization that provides compassionate and quality health care to those facing the final stages of a serious illness.

Each year, HHCRI throws a Gala as a part of their fundraising events. This past week we had the pleasure of hosting their kick-off meeting here at our Cafe. With this year’s Miami Vice theme in mind, we served cuban inspired appetizers, homemade tortilla chips, and built an empanada bar.

Seven Stars Holiday Party

As caterers, we work in almost any space imaginable. We’ve worked out of hallways, basements, farms, and fields. Recently, we catered a plated dinner for our friends over at Seven Stars Bakery as a belated holiday party for their staff – in what was probably the most awesome venue we’ve worked in … a bowling alley!

The Seven Stars group hosted their Holiday Party at Break Time Bowl and Bar, a restored bowling alley located in Hope Artiste Village. We set up a long, family-style table for the group to sit at for dinner, in between Passed Hors D’oeuvre’s and Passed Desserts. Continue reading “Seven Stars Holiday Party”

Top 14 Appetizers of 2014

2014 is coming to a close & I was thinking it would be fun to recap our top 14 appetizers of the year as we enter new beginnings. This year has been a whirlwind for us, hosting out first series of weddings at our Cafe, strengthening our brand, and growing in numbers – Easy Entertaining is barreling towards 2015 and we couldn’t be more excited about what it stand to bring us!

Now, these appetizers are in no particular order. Since our menus change five times per year there was no way to accurately rank them from number 1 to number 14. BUT these were the fan favorites of 2014 … enjoy.

Our Signature Cranberry Pinot Noir Meatballs

these babies are our top seller – that I can say with confidence. It’s no doubt that these sweet and tangy bites of heaven are our number 1 for 2014.
