Planning an event means considering all the little details, from location to food and everything in between. That said – one of the essential items to consider is the time of your event. Whether it’s an early morning company training, an elegant evening reception, or even a late-night poker party, G Texas Catering has you covered with the perfect menu options that fit the time of your event! Yes, your menu items should directly correlate to the time of your event so that you can sufficiently meet the needs of your guests!

Early Day Events

Grab ‘n go pastries make moving around events easy for attendees.

Kicking off your early-day event with an array of food and beverage options can set the tone for a bright and cheerful experience for your guests. For example, some crowd favorites for our earlier events include bright mocktail beverages, delicious assorted pastries, and chef-inspired grab ’n go lunches. We like to focus on menu items that can quickly be served to guests so they can enjoy a delicious bite before participating in the rest of the festivities planned!

Other options we love include a tasty spread of fresh salads and sandwiches that can be customized and ready to serve according to your needs. Of course, we can’t forget charcuterie arrangements and displays, which are an eye-catching option that guests can also enjoy!

Evening Delights

Elegant meals will impress your guests.

As the sun sets and the stars come out, catering for the evening is the perfect opportunity to dazzle guests with unforgettable dishes. From elegant entrees to savory sides, the options for your event are endless. For a luxurious touch, a classic Filet Mignon served with roasted Shallots, and savory wild Mushrooms from our plated menu is always a great choice. For a lighter option, we recommend something off our small plate station, such as the Spicy Gulf Shrimp Ceviche Shooter served with Chili Cumin Chips. A popular vegetarian option is our delicious Roasted Vegetable Wellington, which will surely please any plant-based eaters at the event.

Our team can fully customize your evening meals and beverages to cater to your event perfectly. We understand that a well-crafted evening dish can leave a lasting impression on guests and make a memorable event that much more special!

Late-Night Bites

Delicious late-night bites are an increasingly popular menu request we are seeing for those events that linger late into the evening. After hours of conversation, dancing, and participating in event activities, you’ll likely want something light for your guests to enjoy before they head out the door. The best late-night bites, in our opinion, are packed with flavor but easy for guests to grab and bite into! Some of our current favorites include Chicken and Waffles, Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots, Pretzel Bites with Cheddar Sauce, Chicken Flautas, Cheeseburger Sliders… The list goes on!

No matter the time of your event, we can design the perfect menu that will sufficiently meet the needs of your guests!

Catering Companies for Rainy Weather: How To Set Your Event Up for Success

Rain happens, and naturally, Texas has very unpredictable weather! When planning your next outdoor catering event, you’ll want to consider how the weather could factor into it. Establishing a game plan with your catering and event team is important and will ensure everything is prepared should there be a surprise storm. Read on to learn about finding catering companies for rainy weather in Dallas!

Venue Considerations

When choosing your event venue, there are many beautiful and practical options. That said, if you’re booking in the spring or fall, you need to plan for rain! There are indoor/outdoor venues with large covered patios or large indoor spaces, though many don’t provide both.

If your spring wedding is slated for outdoors, purposely choosing a venue with a built-in backup indoor space might save your wedding day! The same consideration goes for corporate events, as you want to ensure your guests, speakers, and any breakout events have covered options. If your venue has no backup indoor location, check that large tents are available to rent and/or that your events company can provide that for you.

Make sure to factor parking into your planning as well. Many venues, especially those at rural farms or other converted buildings, do not have paved parking, and a sudden downpour may result in muddy shoes and high heels that sink into the ground.

Caterer Offerings

Similar to the venue considerations, you’ll want to consider your food options. Some things to consider are if the food can hold up to the humidity often brought on by rainy weather and if the food can be transported easily to an indoor location should the weather change. You’ll also want to ask if the caterer has tents and coverings available if an indoor location isn’t available at your venue. The last thing you’d want is for your food to get soaked and essentially end your event early.

Hiring a full-service catering and events company like G Texas will ensure your event is successful rain or shine. Our skilled team of professionals helps make sure the venue is set for any adverse conditions and all food is securely stored so your guests can still have a fantastic experience regardless of rain.

with Perfect Partners. Our clients come from a variety of different sources. A large number are professional meeting planners or event designers. Many others meet us at an event that they are attending as a guest and inquire about who has provided the catering and bar services. The largest number of all of our client’s come to us through our great venue partners.

Venues are obviously key in creating the perfect event. Great catering, entertainment and other event elements are important, but all of these are dependent on a venue team that understands what goes into building an event.
Our venue partners include upscale wedding facilities, elegant ballrooms, hotels, outdoor gardens, food truck yards, casual clubs, corporate meeting rooms and industrial warehouse spaces.

Choosing a Venue in DFW

When we get the opportunity to meet a group that has not selected a venue, we love helping them pick the perfect setting for their guests.

It all begins with the interview process. This is where we learn all about the purpose of the event and the vision that the planner has for their group.


Some of these questions include:

  • What is the expected attendance?
  • Is there a speaker or program planned?
  • Will all guests be seated or encouraged to mingle?
  • What entertainment and decor elements do they have in mind?
  • Is this a formal event or more of a casual party?
  • Are guests driving to the event or coming by motor coach?

Party Planning with Perfect PartnersThese are just a few of the many questions that go into understanding a client’s vision. As the caterer, we take time to get to know each venue we work with. We understand the strengths of each facility based on our experiences with their staff and observing the events they have hosted. Some respond quickly to client requests for information, quotes and contracts and work closely with our team to address every need of the client. Others take a more “hands-off” approach and simply rent the venue and turn over the planning and management to us completely. Either is great as long as we understand the needs of the client and provide the proper support needed to get a great plan in place and execute every step of the event process.Party Planning with Perfect PartnersParty Planning with Perfect Partners

Our venue partners are excited to offer information about our menus and the services we offer. We attend site visits and planning meetings knowing that communication is strong and we work together to direct the client in making the best choices for their event. Each space has it’s own unique personality and key elements that makes it perfect for a particular event. For one client, state of the art sound and lighting is critical, while for another it is a fun outdoor atmosphere that is important.


Party Planning with Perfect PartnersWhat we have learned is that aligning our selves with great partners is the key. Not just venues, but also other vendors, planners and designers who understand we will be doing this together for years to come. It works because we love to see the perfect event executed successfully and we know that with good partners this doesn’t have to be difficult.
