Tell us what Catering By Design does:

By Design Collective houses three divisions of design; Catering by Design, Décor by Design and Picnics by Design.

Catering By Design is our award-winning catering division that is rooted in the philosophy of our owner and executive chef Cade Nagy: Real, pure cooking. We’re not following a template. Our chefs tap their combined training, cooking techniques, and life experiences to create every single dish that is in our menu item collection. Our way of catering demands a unique thought process that requires us to constantly create new ways of providing fresh dishes on-site, ultimately translating into the pure food at your event. So often we are cooking from our hearts and feeding the soul.

Décor By Design means just that. It’s about originality, it’s about designing, it’s about creating YOUR story and how you want it told. Our goal at Decor by Design is to take your event from imagination to reality through our dedication and diligence to event details. We believe every space has its own character and our designers enhance that character drawing inspiration from the arts, upcoming trends, and your vision. By incorporating stylish elements, colors, textures, and emotion, we create just the right atmosphere. And, with a full-time staff of craftsmen, we can produce custom pieces that are exclusive to the Colorado market.

Picnics By Design– Available in the Spring and Summer months.  Picnics by Design celebrates the warmth of the season with classic fare and grilling. We offer carefree casual picnic packages to our clients seeking the same friendly staff and team of experts they have come to know through Catering by Design. Our Picnic Promise: Fresh Ingredients; Grilled-to-Order; Always Plenty; Always on Time; All-star Staff; Extended Service; and Compostable Products.

What would you say makes you stand out from other catering companies?

It is not enough to create delicious food. At Catering by Design we strive to break culinary conventions with a unique spin on food that reinvents menus for every client and every occasion. We love to push the boundaries of what a catered experience can be. The tenacity that our chefs place on our food is exceptional because we are chef owned.

What inspires you?

We have built our reputation on our creativity and innovation. We strive to be several steps ahead of the trends in catering, introducing new and reimagined menu selections displayed in appealing and unique ways. We see every event as an opportunity to create memorable experiences through originality, quality and service. We pull most of our inspiration from the arts, upcoming trends, and your vision.
