The San Francisco Bay Area is known for its colorful array of food and people who like to light up their Instagram feeds with their culinary experiences. And what’s photo-worthy food without a fun, Insta-ready location? The food, the venue, the people, their reactions—these are all the ingredients needed for a successful Instagram post. The social media platform with 1 billion active users was, after all, born in San Francisco.
As one of San Francisco’s favorite full-service caterers, we care about creating moments that delight, activate your senses, and are worth your phone’s storage. Here are a few of our favorite Instagrammable moments around food and venues.
Multi-colored sprinkles, cookie chunks and glazes galore! Donuts are truly one of the most photogenic foods out there. And what’s better than your favorite donut? Selecting your favorite donut off a food wall, of course! As far as we can tell, food walls are still going strong on the Instagram front.
Build Your Own Sushi Bar
Salmon, eel, rainbow and California—sushi makes for one aesthetically pleasing plate. Offering guests a multitude of pieces and condiments creates so many ripe photo opportunities. And it’s not all about the rolls. Fresh sashimi adds a bold addition to every sushi presentation.
If you’re gonna go with the tried and true charcuterie board, it might as well be something spectacular. An epic charcuterie board truly captures everyone’s attention. Oranges that burst and grapes that swell, honey, fig spreads, bright yellow cheeses, breadsticks of all assortments, garnishes and even a little floral—it’s all about that vibrant, breathtaking color.
Plant-based cuisine is all the rage today—not to mention it happens to come in every color of the rainbow, which makes for some popping, Instagrammable food pics. Carrots, green beans, peppers—show us the brightest and boldest veggies!
We All Still Scream for Ice Cream
Attention: ice cream is making a comeback! Actually, though, this childhood favorite never left. There are so many different vessels and creative ways to display ice cream. Serving it all is a sure-fire way to make your guests’ faces light up like a Christmas tree—and that makes for quality social media.
San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers
The San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers is one of our favorite venues to grace Instagram. Built in 1878, this Victorian gem houses many rare and exotic plants. And it’s easily one of San Francisco’s most photographed attractions and event venues. It offers stunning natural beauty for a variety of events, like weddings and baby showers.
Bimbo’s 365 Club
Bimbo 365 Club presents one of the most iconic stages in the San Francisco Bay Area. The former speakeasy still continues to draw in artists from around the world. The club not only offers an incredible space to watch a show but also hosts many types of events, including fundraisers, product launches, award ceremonies, birthdays, weddings and business presentations.
The former San Francisco Federal Reserve, designed by George W. Kelham, presents a glamorous, light-filled ambiance that is best experienced up close. The Bently Reserve’s prominent Art Deco style makes any important gala, product launch or conference come alive.
So many unique weddings take place in wineries. Just ask the internet; it’s covered in smiling couples standing in front of barrel-lined rooms. Dogpatch WineWorks, which was once described as a “skyscraper on its side,” offers an eye-catching place to celebrate, relax and enjoy drinks and a delicious spread with good company.
San Francisco has no shortage of food and venues to be shared among friends, across Instagram and on the rest of social media. If you’d like to create an epic event that will be remembered—with the photos to prove it—we’d love to help! Contact us today!
