The best thing about planning your family reunion right now is that it’s the perfect time for one; especially here in south Florida. The weather is absolutely beautiful this time of year—not too hot, not too rainy, and just right. It’s mild, warm, and perfect picnic weather. And since most family reunions are picnics by the water, there’s no better time or place than now to start planning your next get together!
But, unfortunately, planning and running a family reunion can be stressful. Let’s get real: someone has to call or email everyone in the entire family (and you know that does include your cousin Benny, twice removed). Then, you’ve got to find a date—maybe even an entire week—when everyone is available to get together. Will your venue be available that weekend?
And on top of that, you have to plan all of the food. Who is bringing what dish? Are you bringing everything since you planned the event? Would you rather just book a caterer to make it easy on yourself and everyone else? Who is paying for the catering? Like we said, there’s a lot to consider. And it can easily become stressful. But where’s the fun in that?
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to hire a caterer that will take care of the stress associated with planning a reunion. Even if you plan a potluck event, having the dessert catered can be a huge stress relief for everyone involved!
In fact, hiring professionals is the best thing you can do for yourself when planning an event. That’s because we already know the ins and outs of what it takes to make your event pop. After all, it’s what we at Cold Stone South Florida do for a living. We live and breathe tasty treats—so you can’t go wrong.
Picking out the right dessert for your event can be hard when there are so many tasty options to choose from! But we know there are a few that pop out that’ll make everyone’s taste buds even happier than before. Here are some ideas:
• Ice cream cake: Whether the reunion falls on the same dates as someone’s birthday or anniversary, or your family just loves cake, an ice cream cake is a tried and true favorite.
• Sundae bar: There is nothing more classic than an ice cream sundae. And what better way to beat the south Florida sun’s heat? Our signature catering service is super sweet and super unique! Select three of your family’s favorite ice cream flavors and six mix-ins (plus, we always offer fudge and caramel). We will quickly blend the ice cream and mix-ins on portable granite stones. You get to bring Cold Stone with you to your event!
• Goodies on the go: Our ice cream cupcakes and cookie sandwiches are perfect, individually-portioned snacks for the reunion on the move. No time to sit down and enjoy a treat amid all of the games, catching up, and conversation? Both our cookie sandwiches and ice cream cupcakes are completely edible (our cupcakes are even wrapped with an edible, chocolate shell “wrapper”).
Whether it’s a family reunion, a wedding, a graduation, or a big birthday blowout, we’re here to make sure your event is memorable. We’ve got lots of catering services for you to choose from. Contact us today to get started!
