Legend has it that former President George W. Bush lingered at a Swift + Company event just to partake in their famous blueberry crumble. For those who have hired this full-service, Houston-based event company, that won’t come as a surprise. Not only has Swift + Company produced occasions honoring the last four sitting U.S. presidents, but their parties are known nationwide for their elegance, delicious menus, stunning decor, and well-trained wait staff.
Swift + Company is the endeavor of Elizabeth Swift Copeland, a native Texan who spent years in Washington, D.C. at the Republican National Committee, where she planned breakfasts, luncheons, receptions, and dinners for a range of important guests from all over the world.
After moving back to Texas in 1987, Elizabeth founded Elizabeth Swift Catering, now Swift + Company, which caters to the needs of Texas’ legendary hostesses and leading corporations, offering turnkey services for catering, wedding design, flowers, event management, party rentals, and more.
With its roots in catering, Swift + Company continues to be driven by the belief that a successful event starts with great food. Expect guests to be welcomed by artful cocktails, such as the Italian Greyhound, a mix of grapefruit juice, gin, Aperol, and rosemary sugar, and invited to dine on delectable offerings ranging from seared saddle of lamb to venison nachos.
Swift + Company has grown over its three decades to a team of more than 55 highly creative professionals. Known for their “extra-mile” approach to creating memorable soirées, past events gave them the opportunity to create a cake made entirely of the bride’s favorite Shipley Do-Nuts flavors, prepare a client’s 100‑year-old family recipe for praline cake, and design a lavish party around a single image snapped on the party host’s phone.
