Congrats, You’re Engaged! Now Let’s Plan Your Engagement Party!

At Lombardi Caterers, we want your Engagement Party to represent you and your partner as a couple. With an Engagement Party, you get to decide the ambiance, menu style and and mood for your first celebration as a Married-Couple-To-Be! In this blog post, we will discuss the several options that Lombardi Caterers can offer to engaged couples throughout the Long Island area.

Celebrate Cocktail Style – A cocktail party is a great option for an Engagement Party. For a Cocktail Style Party, we recommend Villa Lombardi’s  Glass Atrium with Lombardi’s 2 Hour Cocktail Party Menu. Your Cocktail Party will take place in a glass room surrounded by Villa Lombardi’s colorful and majestic gardens, offering enchanting imagery and backdrops for your party and photographs. Included in your package will be passed Hot Hors d’oeuvres, Lombardi’s Bruschetta and Crostini presentation, Salad Station, Pasta Bar with your choice from one of Lombardi’s famous sauces, and Carving Station. The cocktail style allows your guests to socialize and mingle while sending you their best wishes for the journey ahead, with plenty of food while they do so! Enhance your menu by adding an Exit Station, like our Chocolate Chip Cookies and Milk!

Sit-Down and Enjoy – A plated dinner with a gorgeous view is what we recommend at Lombardi’s on the Sound in the Harbor View Room. Sit down with views of the Long Island Sound, and enjoy Lombardi’s famous gourmet food served to you restaurant style. That means, the quality received in our high-end restaurant is the same your guests can expect at your sit-down Engagement Party. With access to our deck, guests can smoke a cigar or enjoy a cocktail while overlooking the Long Island Sound. Included in your plated dinner menu will be an appetizer, salad, main entree and dessert–a cake or Mamma Lombardi’s famous cannoli per guest. The sit-down atmosphere can be balanced with an interactive guest book, to encourage your guests to explore the room beyond their assigned tables.

A catered Engagement Party by Lombardi’s Market can accommodate all types of environments—vineyards, private homes, farms, theaters, museums or estates, for example.
