DIY Catering with Gourmet Table Catering

We love food and we love our catering vendors. There are so many different options, from full course meals to tasty hors d’oeuvres. We are all about the traditional menu options, but have you ever thought of choosing a more creative option when it comes to catering? For example, something more interactive and fun that will have all of your guests creating unforgettable memories together?

Gourmet Table Catering offers the most unique experience ever: DIY meals at your very own table. They’re taking “do-it-yourself” to a whole new level by providing guests with their own mini stove tops, pans, and supplies to cook a meal at the comfort of their seat–and what’s the best part? You can cook the food to your liking! Not only is this loads of fun, but the menu is delicious, too! Want to take a peak at the menu? Check it out here.

Jamie + Matt founded Gourmet Table Catering, and their story is a special one for sure because the business came to life on the day of their own wedding. Jamie wanted to find a way to combine the table-top DIY meal experiences she had as a child with unique and affordable catering, thus this incredible business was born. If we could describe GTC in three words, it would be: creative, unique, and affordable.

Their home base is in Las Cruces, but that doesn’t mean they are limited to that area. They offer a wide range of services to local couples all around New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. That’s one little perk when it comes to prepping your own meal at the location of your wedding–the food can travel longer distances than traditional catering!

If you’re looking for catering for your wedding and want to have an unforgettable meal experience, look no further than Gourmet Table Catering. With years of experience and plenty of praise, you can’t go wrong. To learn more and get in contact, you can check them out here.

Feeding New Mexico’s Weddings and Communities: Street Food Institute

As certified New Mexico wedding experts, we, the Perfect Wedding Guide team, spend a lot of time talking about what it is that makes each individual wedding so special. Often, we hone in on the little details in the decor, bouquets, vows, and such. We do so because with hundreds of thousands of weddings happening all over the world, it’s the minutia of the moment that reveals the hidden intricacies of a couple’s wedding. So you might ask yourself questions while planning your wedding that seem overly introspective, but are actually totally valid. The colors you choose for your wedding do reflect your identities. Your venue, be it chic and modern with clean edges, or industrial and rustic with an old-world charm, really does encapsulate your penchants and personalities. 

Not to mention, as the world continues to be tumultuous and ever-turning, the decision-making of choosing wedding professional to trust, which vendor to collaborate with, and which small business to support, becomes even bigger than just deciding whose vibe matches yours. If you’re anything like us, then you want to support the kinds of businesses who do good for your community, too. 

So when we first learned about the Street Food Institute here in New Mexico, our initial reaction was to jump for joy. Equal parts food truck catering and culinary education program, the Street Food Institute nourishes our community not only through their delicious food, but through their sustainable entrepreneur pathways, too. The former provides unique, experiential dining options for weddings and events here in New Mexico, and the latter, long-lasting and life-changing professional development for students from all backgrounds. 

With specific programs for those most vulnerable in our community — like their partnership with Crossroads for Women, an organization for formerly incarcerated women — the Street Food Institute empowers and educates while they feed and delight their customers and friends. You can choose from one of their many fine-tuned, carefully curated menus — brunch foods, taco bars, causal eats, vegetarian cuisine, and asian buffets — or you can take advantage of their professional chef expertise and have a custom menu created to perfectly compliment the other eats and treats at your wedding. With either option, you can move forward with the Street Food Institute knowing you’re supporting and celebrating a local business who strengthens our entire community. 

Plus, if we’re being honest here, we all know the food truck trend is the most adorable and convenient thing to ever hit the food scene here in New Mexico. By partnering with the Street Food Institute for your wedding, you can reflect your good taste both literally and metaphorically, and create an experience for your family and friends unlike any other. To contact the incredibly dedicated, incredibly kind team over at the Street Food Institute, you can contact them here.
