Catering Ideas To Charm Your Guests

When asking our wedding couples what their top three wedding priorities are, food and drink is almost always near the top of the list. The reception fare is often what guests remember most about the wedding – whether it was tasty, plentiful, served at the right temperature and at the right time. Catering typically accounts for the largest portion of most couples' budgets, so it only makes sense they want to serve something that shines!

Together with Pepper Moon Catering, we’re ready to take on the challenge to impress your guests. Pepper Moon Catering has been offering premier, full service catering for all occasions in Greensboro, NC for over 20 years. They have been providing exclusive catering and management for Revolution Mill Events since 2015.

When planning your reception, you’ll get to work closely with Jaime, our Venue & Catering Manager. She draws upon over 15 years of event experience and has a keen eye for detail, love of logistics and providing personalized customer service. You will enjoy the seamless wedding planning experience that Revolution Mill Events provides!

While a dinner buffet continues to be a popular selection, read on for some fun food trends to consider incorporating into your wedding day. Whether you’re planning to have a casual gathering, fancy affair, or something in-between, don’t be afraid to mix things up with the latest trends, as long as the elements stay true to you ~ the happy couple. We love getting to know you, finding out your favorite foods, and working with you to create a custom menu that is charming, memorable, and deliciously satisfying!

Welcome Your Guests with a Cocktail

What better way to say, “Welcome! It’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy your evening!” than to offer a drink as your guests walk in? We are obsessed with this idea recently used by one of our couples at their reception. Guests were wowed with this beautiful (and functional!) welcome display. We worked with the couple to create a signature blueberry, lavender pink lemonade, which was uniquely displayed with their escort cards. This display also makes a stunning champagne wall.

Late Night Snacks

Grilled Cheese at a wedding? Yes! We love putting a playful twist on southern comfort foods. Imagine ending a night of tearing up the dance floor with a gourmet grilled cheese made with blue cheese and bacon or goat cheese and peppadew peppers. Other ideas to satisfy your guest’s late night munchies: a soft pretzel bar, freshly popped popcorn, mac & cheese bites or burger sliders.

Interactive Food Stations

Provide a memorable opportunity for your guests to interact with their food by building their own plate or watching a Pepper Moon chef create their personal dish.

Hors d’oeuvres are spread out into multiple stations which is ideal for reducing lines and offering variety. Your guests will remember the fun interactive displays (think Mashed Potato Bar, Polenta Bar, Taco Station) and chefs preparing their dishes (think Jar-B-Q, Fired Ahi Tuna, Gyros, Fajitas with fresh Guacamole, Jap Che)!

Interactive food stations allow your guests to customize their meal to fit their preferences, which will have your guests raving about the food at your wedding.

Cocktail Hour Hors D'oeuvres

Cocktail hour is the perfect time to let your personality shine through the food!

Passed hors d'oeuvres — This is an elegant way to provide bite sized hors d'oeuvres to your guests during cocktail hour. Servers will tray pass the goodies as your guests mix and mingle throughout the space. Pepper Moon Catering offers many options including the popular Pumpkin Curry Empanada, Sundried Tomato Biscuits with housemade Pimento Cheese, Caprese Skewers, Marinara Meatball in a Spaghetti Nest and Bacon wrapped Sweet Potato.

Displayed hors d'oeuvres — Wow your guests with displays of mouth watering hors d'oeuvres such as Imported and Domestic Cheeses, a trio of Dips, Fresh Fruit with brandied custard dipping sauce or Grilled Vegetables with sundried tomato vinaigrette. Combine several items for a plentiful grazing table!

Formal Plated Meals

We’re seeing a return to the traditional plated dinner service. This is a great option if you are going for a more formal and elegant guest experience. Typically guests are seated at an assigned table and the meal is served directly to the table by the wait staff. It is often a three course meal that includes a salad, entree, and dessert.

Everyone at the table will get their food at the same time; and you can spread out toasts and/or incorporate dances during the courses to keep your guests engaged while they enjoy their dinner.

Include a Local Favorite

We are lucky to have some amazing food businesses central to North Carolina like Krispy Kreme, Mt Olive Pickles, Cheerwine, Texas Pete, Snyder’s-Lance and Dewey’s Bakery. Try adding a bit of of flair to your day and include something local in your wedding menu. We could incorporate Krispy Kreme donuts as a late night snack or offering them as favors to your guests! We also have a fun Krispy Kreme slider bar where guests can choose their toppings for a decadent dessert.

Make Your Corporate Holiday Party a Hit

I know… it’s July, but have you started thinking about your Greensboro corporate holiday party yet? Trust me, the festive season will be here before you know it! Don’t stress, there’s still time to plan a soirée that will keep your employees talking and excited for the next one. Corporate holiday parties can have a reputation for being a bit… dull… but there are so many ways you can get creative and create some real holiday spirit within your co-workers!

A holiday party is an opportunity to get your team together, get to know each other better in a more relaxed environment, and let everyone know how much they are appreciated for their hard work. What exactly makes a party memorable? These ideas and tips can help you create a company holiday party that everyone will enjoy.


  • Consider a theme for your event such as Winter Wonderland, Ugly Christmas Sweater, Rustic Woodlands, Christmas Masquerade Ball or Santa’s Workshop. Create an amazing guest experience by tying the theme into all the details.

  • Choose a color scheme. A classic black-and-white color scheme is classy and gives your guests an excuse to get dressed up for a special night out. Red-and-white is also a fun alternative that celebrates the festive season.

  • Lighting can really enhance the look of your event! Ask us about uplighting, edison lights, gobos, string lights and more.

Food is such an important factor in any type of party or event. Do you want a more formal feel? Then consider a plated dinner with table-side wine service. If you’re looking to get guests to mix and mingle, then plan for a buffet or heavy hors d’oeuvres stations. Add fun accents like a hot chocolate or fresh apple cider bar with seasonal mix ins. Don’t forget dessert with classics such as cheesecake or a variety of holiday themed cookies and pastries. We love partnering with you to create custom menus for all kinds of social occasions!

“We really had a good time at the holiday party. Everything was absolutely perfect. The food was awesome and the employees keep raving about how good it was. We feel like it was probably about the best company party we’ve ever had. You did a fabulous job coordinating the whole thing and it was great working with you. I will be in touch for next year!”
- Carri, Caffey Distributing

"Jaime, I would like to send high compliments to the staff you assembled for that evening. Everyone proclaimed the food selections as delicious! I must add that all the staff, even down to the security person, were on top of their game. If I have the opportunity to host something like this in the future, I will be in touch. Meanwhile, I will spread the word to friends who weren’t able to attend. Revolution Mill Events is a beautiful venue and maintains a high standard for any type of event, and a high quality of food from Pepper Moon Catering. Bravo to all." - Joy, Livingbrush Body Painting


Consider hiring entertainment for your Holiday party. Quality performers can take your party to the next level! Toss around these ideas:

  • Live band or DJ

  • Casino gaming

  • Photo booth

  • Live artist

  • Roving performers

  • Trivia games


Friday and Saturday evenings in December always book up fast, so you’ll want to secure those dates well in advance. Are you working with a limited budget? Select a weekday or consider a January “Kick off the New Year Party” when prices are usually lower.
