We realize it’s only January, but we’re already immersed in summer planning and really loving what’s coming up this year. There are some new trends to be on the lookout for (balloon walls!) and a few not so new ones we hope stick around (all the candles!), and as we begin a new season, we can’t help but think back to some of the standout events from the previous one. We worked a little over 200 events last summer, which adds up to A LOT of wonderfully unique moments. Creative event themes were a big deal last year, and one that stands out as an overall favorite was an epic birthday bash, Viking style.
As huge fans of the TV show The Vikings, our clients wanted to transform their yard into a scene from the hit show, complete with animal pelts, skulls, and lots and lots of fire. They thoroughly enjoy hosting a good party, so needless to say, the bar was set high and we were more than up for the challenge. We delivered the dinner party of their dreams and had a blast doing it.

October is a well-loved month here at BHCC, and to toast the cooler temps and amazing foliage, we decided to make some of our famous sausages and doughnuts for you all to enjoy!
For approximately $20, you can get five links (roughly 1.5 pounds) of our house-made apple and fennel, cheddarwurst, or Maine blueberry and maple pork sausage, as well as four of Baker Kate’s apple cider doughnuts. Or, if you’re more hungry for sausage, you can just get sausage. Or, if you’re all about the fall-themed doughnuts, just get the doughnuts. We won’t judge!
Fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you regarding payment and confirmation of pick-up details. It’s that easy!
Please note that all orders must be pre-ordered and prepaid. Right now we’re offering pick-up on Friday, October 19th between 2-6 pm. We’ll add more dates depending on how many orders we receive.
Cheers to October!

At BHCC, we understand the important role food plays in the success of each event and each customer’s experience. We make sure to always find local and organic ingredients, along with sustainable poultry and meats, to be able to deliver food that is both restaurant quality and presented creatively. When you think Bar Harbor Catering Company, you surely think of food first, right? Every successful event doesn't just start with great food - it’s the attentiveness to the little details, in-depth logistics, and the realization of your vision coming to life. When you become our client, the kitchen is only the beginning!
So, what else do you get when you book us for your full-service event? We provide our clients with an extensive array of additional benefits that include:
Not sure how to juggle the rentals on top of mapping out your schedule? Just pick your patterns and styles and we’ll act as a liaison between you and the rental company, handling any changes and revisions throughout the planning process. We offer seamless integration with the rental company by checking in the rentals before the event and setting them back up for pick up after the event. And, there’s no need to worry about when you’re going to have your first dance or when the salad should be served. We’ll go over every detail with you to make sure your day-of schedule meets your vision and that the day’s activities flow seamlessly. Besides the food, the next most important aspect of an event is its design. We pay careful attention to specific details such as the color and theme of your event, centerpieces, decorations, the flow of traffic through the event and table layout, timing, lighting, and music, and we use all these aspects to guide the food presentation and event planning throughout your event.
Have you ever seen Top Chef Restaurant Wars? That’s basically what we do at every event, no matter the size. We create a fully functioning “restaurant” at your event’s location, serve top-notch food and beverage to you and your guests, and then take it all down (leaving it better than we found it!). And we typically do it all in 12 hours or less!
Whether you’re planning a wedding, a large corporate party, or an intimate birthday bash, we want to help you make it a stress-free and spectacular event. Check out our FAQs for additional information or click the button below and shoot us an email - we'd love to chat more!
