Losing a loved one is hard. Planning can be overwhelming. Let our caring team at Entrees Unlimited help. With our Celebration of Life Catering, you can focus on honoring your loved one while we take care of the food and refreshments.

How to Plan Catering for a Funeral, Memorial or Celebration of Life

Many of our San Jose families hold a celebration of life reception after a memorial or funeral service. It’s a wonderful chance for family and guests to comfort each other while sharing stories and memories.

With all the stress and grief that comes with a funeral, however, planning the food is often left until the last second.

To make it easier for you, we’ve put together these simple tips:

  • Select where and when you want to host it.

    Consider how many people will attend and how accessible the location is. Some people prefer hosting it at their house, the funeral home, or at their church. Others decide to go with an outdoor setting such as a park.

    Once you’ve selected a venue and date, we’ll handle the rest. For instance, we can pick up or drop off and we have staff and servers that can facilitate the service. We can also help you with tables, chairs, tents, china, linens, glassware and other equipment.

    In short, you’ll have nothing to worry about during your memorial reception. Leave it all to Entrees Unlimited.

  • Choose what kind of food and drinks you want to serve.

    There’s no “wrong” thing to serve at a funeral reception. For example, you can serve either casual appetizers and drinks, a full meal or something in between.

    That’s why we offer customizable options under our Celebration of Life catering service, which includes:

    • Hot and cold appetizers
    • Salad and sandwiches
    • Hot dishes from a wide range of cuisines around the world
    • Beverage service including beer and wine
    • Many dessert options including cupcakes and cakes

    In addition, we also do custom menus. For instance, did your loved one like a particular dish or dessert? Is there a particular color you associate with their memory? Are there special family customs you’d like to incorporate? Share what you have in mind with our Staff of professionals and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
