Just What the Doctor Ordered
Catering by Design
How did Denver-based Catering by Design celebrate its 20th anniversary? Owners Cade and Ingrid Nagy’s answer was BASH 20, an allout, in-your-face culinary adventure held on March 24. The Catering by Design team and sister company, By Design Event Décor, created never-before-experienced food stations and decorative lounges that transformed Denver’s Mile High Station into a showcase of what’s new. A jerky gallery, elevated chandelier dessert buffet, 7-foot-tall rubber duck and threedimensional paint-bynumbers experience were among the many wonders of the night.
The economy is warming up, the party scene is hot and charity events must be sizzling to succeed. Within the past decade, we went from boom time to one of the tightest budget crunches in recent history and back to solid ground. Colorado’s nonprofits are delighted in the change of circumstances; however, now, more than ever, they feel the pressure to create fundraising events that are truly memorable and impressionable.
Daniel Love thinks of every event as a stage production—it should always leave you wanting more. That’s the philosophy he brings to his Philadelphia-based full-service catering company, Catering By Design (CBD). “Every event, every catering job is a theatrical experience as well as a culinary experience; all engage your senses like theater,” says Love.
