Set on having the popular Mexican confection known as churros at your wedding reception? But wondering what would be the most fun, least hassle way to treat your guests to this crunchy, sugary pastry? Well, in this post, we present you some definitely delish options. Will you go for a wedding snack bar offering ready-to-eat churros? Will you contract a caterer to do it for you? Or will you assemble your own DIY churros station? See which approach suits your taste!
Caterers in LA Area Specializing in Churros
For couples in or near Los Angeles area, we found these highly recommended caterers or vendors offering churros for special events.
There is Mr. & Mrs. Churro (1), an actual husband and wife team serving the Thousand Oaks area, who can bring a nifty little cart to your reception venue and serve churros with varied flavors and toppings. Then, there’s Churro Boss (2) that provides their cool “stand on wheels” decorated with traditional Dia de los Muertos symbols and papel picado banners—and serving your choice of churro variants. The Churro Man (3) also offers a drive-in mobile food van that’s sure to add a festive focal point to your reception, while serving their gourmet churros. While Bon Appetit Crepe Company (4) gives you the option of a mini churro station that will fit stylishly into any venue setup.
And finally, Ridges Churro Bar (5) invites you to “follow our food truck” to enjoy unique churro flavors like salted caramel, fruity pebbles, cinnamon sugar, Nutella nut, and strawberry cheesecake!
Serving Churros in a Station & More
Prefer not to hire a caterer or vendor? Here are some creative ideas we found for assembling a churros station to suit your wedding theme and reception venue.
Love the casual charm of this Churros in a Cup dessert table (1) featured by Creme Berry. A homemade chocolate dipping sauce stays warm in a fondue warmer, while a helpful how-to sign guides guests on how to create a cupful of churros and enjoy! Prefer a more modern take? As featured by Keiseee in the City, churros can be presented ready-to-eat in shot glasses already holding chocolate sauce (2). Neat idea!
For a fun interactive option, why not set up a DIY Churro Bar (3) as offered by Cafe Natalie Catering—allowing guests to pair the cinnamon-sugar coated pastries with other toppings like dark chocolate ganache, Dulce de Leche drizzle, or Oreo and Butter Finger crumbs. Or as displayed on Kojo Designs, have an entire Churro Buffet (4) with a spread of churro sticks and nuggets, plus dips (from chocolate to strawberry) and toppings (from walnuts to wafers to toasted coconut) so invitingly offered! If your reception has a Mexican theme, then churros are an obvious choice—and fittingly presented fiesta-style with multi-colored linens, serveware, and decor (5), as seen on Target Made Me Do It.
Or if your motif is rustic-chic, how clever is this serve-yourself churros-in-bags display on a pegboard (6), found at a real wedding via Auburn and Ivory? Finally, to complement your churro station, why not surprise guests with personal churro packs (7), as seen on Fresa Weddings. Wrapped in waxed paper and with a cinnamon stick tied on with twine, these would make ideal midnight snacks for lingering guests as well as edible wedding favors to enjoy on the ride home!
