Spring / Summer 2018-2019 Catering
We are offering Spring / Summer catering packages for 2018 & 2019.
Offering a mobile catering service for the Sunshine Coast we can travel to your location with service areas including Noosa, Kawana, Caloundra, Gympie, Nambour and the Noosa Hinterland regions including Maleny, Montville, Mapleton and Kenilworth.
Our menus offers 1 chef, 1 wait staff, napkins, quality unbreakable plates & stainless steel cutlery for sit-down meals & quality one use for Canape / Cocktail Style events. All cooking equipment, serving platters and utensils are provided with all our catering including beautiful buffets & share platters for you and your guests.
Our buffets look amazing and provide a showpiece with freshly made salads and edible garnishes, not to mention a selection of tender meats - served on time every time!
Buffets are perfect for relaxed Christmas Parties, social events, Weddings Receptions, Corporate Events and private parties. This style of catering can be served at marquee functions, at your office workplace or at a private property.
On the day we arrive 3-4 hours prior to service to setup onsite, we require access to an undercover area next to parking (as we have our mobile ovens in our van) with access to power, water and lighting for night time functions. As a guide we require 2x10amp power points. We ask for you to provide the tables and table cloths for the catering service. This generally includes 4 x 1.8m trestle tables positioned in a straight line allowing guests to flow down either side of the buffet – this ensures a smooth and efficient service, not to mention a social atmosphere for guests during the buffet service. An additional 2 tables/cloths are required if Finger Food and/or Dessert is provided.
Looking for additional extras including Finger Foods or Dessert options?
We can provide a selection of Finger Foods for guests prior to the Buffet service and individually plated Desserts for guests to enjoy.
Pricing is per person with a once off travel and booking fee applied depending on the location of your event. Please contact us for additional extras and we can tailor a catering package to compliment our Spring / Summer Buffet Special.
Wedding Trends 2018 - Styling
As the weather starts to warm up we are seeing a boom in enquiries for 2019 Weddings, while the majority of these are for June and September wedding celebrations are year round on the Sunshine Coast.
2018 was largely influenced with vintage styling with soft touches of lace and hessian, beautiful flowers and the backdrop of nature to provide a romantic setting. Weddings in 2019 seem to be trending with a similar styling with more and more brides adding their own personal touches to the wedding setup.
From rustic wooden centrepieces to cute glass bottles with cardboard straws we see a touch of old school elegance in the styling of wedding receptions. It is really beautiful to see pops of colour incorporated through the use of flowers from pastel pinks to romantic reds and beautiful blues with luscious foliage of green to create texture. Flowers are a great way to soften or brighten the styling to suit the season with Baby’s Breath a popular choice for whites.
The little touches we noticed more and more in 2017 and trending into 2018 are really beautiful from glass bottles wrapped in hessian and ribbon or lace with lashings of baby’s breath to rustic cutlery holders with personalised greeting cards.
We really enjoy incorporating the styling into the service of catering, it is beautiful to continue the textures and flowers onto a Gourmet Buffet or Grazing Table or presenting beautiful handmade savoury tarts in the centre of each plate ready for guests to enjoy once seated – perfect for Share Platters and formal seated dinners.

Winn Road, Mt Samson
Samsonvale Hall is a beautiful large hall available for hire for weddings and private functions. Located in Samsonvale it features a wide wrap around verandah on two sides with plenty of space for 100+ guests.
The inside of the hall opens up to wide wooden floors, high wooden beam ceilings and plenty of space for guests to move inside / outside. The verandah is perfect for guests on arrival to enjoy drinks and a Grazing Style Canapé service table before moving inside for the Bridal Party welcome.
Moving inside, the hall allows plenty of room for round or rectangle tables for guest seating along with your featured styling setup including;
Buffet service table
Wedding Cake Table
Lolly Bar (always popular)
A kitchen is available at the hall with back entrance for catering companies. Catering Sunshine Coast can provide an intimate catering service for 100 + guests, we will provide all cooking equipment, plates, cutlery and napkins. The kitchen does stock plates/cutlery however we prefer to supply our own as this can be taken offsite with us at the end of the evening as we do not wash up onsite.
Internal toilets are available for guests, these can be accessed via the verandah (if you want to keep limited guests inside the hall early on) or via the main hall.
For this venue we do recommend a drinks station setup away from the kitchen to limit the number of people moving through this one area of the hall as the kitchen, toilet and drinks fridge are in close proximity to each other.
Samsonvale Hall is a beautiful venue and would highly recommend for Wedding Receptions. Contact Catering Sunshine Coast for catering options.
Weddings can be a stressful time when you try to do everything yourself. With professional caterers you can leave the cooking and service to us so you can enjoy the day. We have catered hundreds of weddings and understand that the timings and order of service are important to ensure your function runs smoothly and on time. We arrive prior to your ceremony to setup and cook onsite.
A selection of Finger Food or Grazing Table can be served after your ceremony while the bridal party has photographs taken. This will give guests time to socialise with family and friends before your return. Beautifully decorated and presented a selection of easy to eat canapés are perfect at weddings.
Once guests are seated and the bridal party has returned from photographs the main meal can be served. Buffets for large weddings are our specialty. We will ensure the buffet is laid out to look fantastic for your guests to enjoy.
