At Rogue Kitchens, we offer full service catering for all types of events. Some events include weddings, corporate events, birthdays, and more. You can make an event unique by customizing your menu with a theme. Here are nine ideas for your full service catering event: 


Embrace the farm-to-table movement by showcasing fresh, locally sourced ingredients in your menu. We can help create a seasonal menu that reflects the best offerings from local farmers and artisans. This theme can support sustainability and provide guests with a unique and authentic culinary experience.

Classy Dining

Transport your guests back in time with a vintage-themed menu. Choose a specific era, such as the Roaring Twenties or the 1950s, and craft a menu that mirrors the culinary trends of that time. Classic cocktails, retro appetizers, and elegant main courses can create a memorable and nostalgic dining experience.

Vegan and Plant-Based

Consider a menu entirely free of animal products. We can create creative and flavorful dishes that demonstrate vegan cuisine. Our chefs can showcase the dishes to be delicious and satisfying, like traditional non-vegan offerings. We can think beyond salads and offer vegan lasagna, plant-based burgers, and dairy-free desserts.

Comfort Food

Consider a menu filled with all-time favorites like mac and cheese, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and warm apple pie. This theme is perfect for creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere that will leave your guests feeling cozy and content. Consider this theme for an event in the colder months, as that is when comfort food is most popular. 


A Seafood-themed menu is popular for events, and we have a full menu to choose from. We can create dishes from shrimp cocktails to a decadent seafood boil. The options for a seafood theme are diverse and delicious. Be sure to accommodate guests with seafood allergies by offering non-seafood alternatives.

Breakfast for Dinner

Break away from tradition by serving breakfast-inspired dishes at your evening event. You can choose from omelets, pancakes, breakfast burritos, and a variety of fresh fruit juices. This theme can add a unique twist to your full service catering event.

A Taste of the South

Consider a menu filled with Southern classics like fried chicken, collard greens, cornbread, and peach cobbler. Choose this theme if you're hosting your event in the South or simply appreciate this cuisine's hearty, comforting nature.

Wine and Dine

A wine-themed menu can be an excellent choice for the wine connoisseurs among your guests. Pair different courses with carefully selected wines that complement and enhance the flavors of the dishes. Offer a variety of wine options, including red, white, and dessert wines, to suit all tastes.

Customizable Stations

A customizable station-based menu is a menu theme idea that allows for flexibility and personalization. Set up different food stations where guests can build their dishes. Options include a pasta station, taco bar, and sushi station. This approach lets your guests tailor their meals to their liking and adds an interactive element to your event.

Full Service Catering

Having a themed menu can create a unique and meaningful experience for you and your guests. Consider one of these themes for your next birthday, party, or other large event. Contact Rogue Kitchens to learn more about our full service catering.
