Plated University Graduation at the National Museum of Women in the Arts
On Wednesday, July 11, students gathered at the National Museum of Women in the Arts to celebrate their graduation. Catering by Seasons had the pleasure of serving a lovely seated dinner for over 300.
Elegant decor and national flags colored the tables – reflecting the diverse group of students from around the globe.
Catering by Seasons served fabulous spring hors d’oeuvre including our famous Golden Gazpacho Shooters, Crab and Avocado Crostini, and Sweet Chili Shrimp Skewers.
The reds and golds were radiant throughout the museum, with beautiful flowers and china to match.
The first course, a salad of baby greens, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and dried cranberries drizzled with a citrus vinaigrette was a hit, adding even more color to this fantastic reception.
Guests were given the choice between honey-glazed salmon medallions, filet mignon or savory grilled vegetable tarts for their main entrée, with saffron risotto cakes and grilled asparagus on the side.
For dessert, guests enjoyed a pairing of limoncello flutes and chocolate Florentine cookies.
A special thanks to all of our fantastic vendors:

Catering By Seasons exceeded my expectation. I used them for a brunch at my house after my son’s bar mitzvah. The level of professionalism along with their responsiveness made me feel at ease right away.
Stefanie was such a huge help! Everything was smooth, she helped us find ways to cut costs and advocated for us with our venue.
I can’t say enough great things about our entire experience planning our daughter's Bat Mitzvah with Glynis Keith, Catering Manager, with Catering by Seasons.
