Pantone’s Color of the Year: Fuzzy Peach

Colorado’s Palisade peaches, renowned for their exquisite taste and vibrant hue, take center stage as Pantone’s Color of the Year embraces the delightful tones of Fuzzy Peach. This harmonious blend of warmth and whimsy isn’t just a trend—it’s a celebration of Colorado’s finest produce, infusing event catering with a touch of local charm and flavor.

For event planners and caterers in Colorado, incorporating Palisade peaches and their signature shade into décor and menu offerings adds a unique and western twist. Imagine tables adorned with peach-inspired centerpieces or drinks crafted with the sweetness of these local peaches. It’s more than just a color—it’s an homage to the region’s rich agricultural heritage.

And when it comes to culinary creations, our chefs at Occasions Catering go above and beyond to highlight the exquisite flavors of Palisade peaches. We source these juicy gems directly from Colorado farmers, ensuring the freshest and most flavorful produce for our clients’ events. From refreshing cocktails to delectable desserts and savory dishes, infusing Palisade peaches into our menu offerings tantalizes taste buds and elevates the visual appeal.

Picture our Charred Palisade Peach salad, where the sweetness of the peaches perfectly balances the smoky flavors topped with a champagne vinaigrette, or our housemade lavender ricotta, enhanced with the vibrant hues and delicate aroma of these local treasures. Passed apps like our Grilled Peach and Burrata Flatbread burst with flavor, featuring the irresistible combination of Palisade peaches and other locally sourced ingredients like burrata and lavender honey.

But we don’t stop there. Our culinary team gets creative with Palisade peaches, incorporating them into chutneys and sauces, like the one drizzled over our Colorado Crispy Chicken, adding a touch of sweetness and depth of flavor that sets our dishes apart.

Beyond aesthetics, embracing Palisade peaches in event catering speaks volumes about sustainability and supporting local produce. It’s a statement of eco-conscious choices and a commitment to offering guests an authentic taste of Colorado.

As 2024 unfolds, expect Palisade peaches to steal the spotlight in Colorado’s event scene. Their infusion into catered affairs, from weddings to corporate gatherings, promises a touch of regional flair and a sensory journey that captivates attendees, making every event an unforgettable ode to the beauty and flavor of Colorado’s prized produce.
