Just In Time for Holiday Party Catering…
Some of you know the Twelve 31 story…
Melissa, has been a Chef and Event Planner in Boston since the early 2000’s. But Twelve 31 is still, believe it or not, sorta new. The business was formed in late 2017. And our Grand Opening, after our Kitchen build out, was May.
Therefor…It’s our first Christmas and Holiday Season!
We’re celebrating by giving away FREE Italian Christmas Cookies with EVERY order.
There is no catch. Any order gets Cookies! The give-away is in proportion to the order. Simple.
Below I have added some links to our menus. Check them out. Whether it’s a big party with plenty of time to plan or a last minute gathering or something in between, we’ve got awesome food… AND… Free Cookies.
It’s our way of saying thank you to everyone who has made our first 6 months an amazing success!
And if you haven’t tried us yet, change that and get Italian Cookies too!
Menu 1: Catering
This is our full catering menu. Perfect for larger gatherings and more advanced planning. Although, we accommodate clients on short notice too.
Menu 2: Heat & Eat
This menu is really catching on. Smaller quantities and shorter notice. You finish these in your own oven following simple instructions.
Menu 3: “Game-Time”
Each item is a winner! Simple as that. Perfect for small or larger sports parties.
Menu 4: “Main Street Mondays”
A “limited” menu. Right now, we only do 3 of these each week for those fast to get their orders in and reserve.
Tis the season… Well, almost.
We started getting calls this week about end-of-year and holiday parties.
Don’t worry, we won’t mention anything that will conjure up any feelings of stress! It’s Only October!
That said… it is time to plan!
Twelve 31 is ready to make the food at this year’s event memorable.

Budget is always a question when it comes to exploring catering options for your business or social event.
It’s a fact that everyone wants the best quality and the most amount of food for their budget.
And we agree!
We want our catering clients to be able to get as much of our food as possible.
If our clients and their guests get to experience the most amount of variety from our menu we know they’ll be talking about it and telling their friends!
Our “Tray Favorites” are the most cost-effective way to get the most amount of food and the most amount of variety.
We love catering these type of events.
We can show up and place your selections right into your heating equipment. We’re talking about, pans, wire frames and sternos.
Or, if you want the added layer of convenience, we can bring this equipment for a small fee. It’s really up to you.
Either way we encourage you to browse our Tray Favorites Catering Menu to get some ideas.
While catering keeps us busy, you can also expect some fun and delicious events in the future.
At our tasting room, we’ll be hosting a private dinner for seafood lovers!
Baked Stuffed Lobster will be the headliner! It’s stuffed with shrimp, scallops and clams.
The rest of the menu will consist of …
and Crab cakes
If you’re planning a business meeting you know that food is important. But you should not have to worry about it.
You’ve got your clients and co-workers to worry about.
An agenda to run.
And countless other things to focus on.
But what about the food?
A meeting that will last a while and run through lunch or go late in the day will absolutely need some food.
But not just any food.
When you take the time to find excellent quality food it shows that details matter to you.
Having the right catering service for your business event will help.
It’s a fact that your business associates will think highly of you when they are thrilled with the food you provided.
You get all the credit. You made it happen.
When the meal is served and everyone is silent for a few minutes enjoying their meal, you know you have a winner.
For great business lunch catering ideas visit…
You’ve been planning the event for months. You’ve had a couple chats with the onsite contact and everything is falling into place. You let the caterer know they will have full access to the kitchen and the rental company is bringing tables and chairs for your 100 guests. Very exciting!
Then… the day of the event comes.
You are onsite, vendors begin to arrive and your guests won’t be far behind. You notice something is off! You discover there is no kitchen and the function room is half the size.
Oh No! Now What?
All of this could have been prevented with a simple site visit. Site visits are a chance for you to check out the venue in advance. You can not expect to plan an event in a location without spending time at that location.
Countless times we’ve done site visits only to discover problems we were previously unaware of. The flip side is that you’ll also see opportunities and possibilities you won’t see until you have seen the site for yourself.
Planning where you’re going to locate things for your event is made much easier when you’re very familiar with the location. The best way to achieve that level of familiarity? Yup, you guessed it. Site visits.
Your caterer, planner and other vendors can do site visits to make sure everything is ready to go. A good indicator that you are working with dedicated professional vendors is they will ask the types of questions you can only answer by visiting the venue. There is no sense in spending the extra money to add string lights to your tent only to find out there is no power source nearby.
No surprises = A Successful Event
When you’re looking for a good catering service to cater your next event you might be on Google searching for “Restaurant Catering.”
It’s important to know the difference between looking for restaurant-quality catering and a restaurant that offers catering.
Catering companies only dedicated to catering do not operate full-service / sit-down restaurants. Catering services exclusively doing with catering only cater.
A restaurant might still be a good option, you’ll just have to do your homework.
Other things to consider…
Are you looking for the catering company to also provide the space for your event? This is certainly a benefit if a restaurant can be the right fit for your event.
Most catering is brought onsite by the caterer, so you have flexibility in choosing your venue.
At Twelve 31 Events we are not a restaurant but our food is certainly restaurant-quality.
Our tasting room fits up to 30 for a reception-style event and 20 for a plated meal.
If you found us searching “Restaurant-Catering,” know that we will deliver the quality and the taste that will exceed your expectations, we just choose not to be in the “restaurant business.”
