Tips for Parties & Events
Corporate, Social, and Government
Catered event planning can be fun, but challenging! To ensure a successful outcome, there are several points to consider as you prepare for catered event. Planning well in advance is important to prevent last-minute stress. Here are some tips to help you ensure your event goes as smoothly as possible:
For parties or themed events, themed catering is a good way to create a sense of engagement. A particular regional cuisine (Hungarian, French, American, etc.), types of foods, and even party themes can have menus catered specifically to accommodate foods based around that theme. Dress the part, decorate accordingly and provide themed dishes to truly capture the idea around any themed party or event.
For all day events, it is important to remember that the longer guests remain, the more they’ll consume. Over time people get hungry and thirsty over and over again. So, when deciding on the amount of food to provide, factor in how long the event will last.
When supplying lunch for the office, or a full dinner to impress a client, you will need to determine the type of event that you trying to create. First, decide if the event is going to be a breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cocktail party. Next, establish what type of service will be most appropriate (such as buffet style or platted dinner). Also, consider how formal will the event be. Is it a casual interoffice lunch, or a service needing to impress a future client? Most caterers offer casual drop off style catering to full service catering, discuss with your caterer your options. Choosing the appropriate style of catering will help ensure that your event is a success.
Inspire your guests with exceptional food and presentation. Choosing the right caterer can make the difference between another run of the mill event, and a stylish occasion your guests won't soon forget! If the event is for the Military, Federal Government or Legislation clients, you don’t want to disappoint! You will want to find a Caterer that can be flexible and creative. Government agencies may have special request and want specific foods on their menus. Youwill want to ensure that the caterer is using freshly prepared, high quality ingredients, while remaining in the price budget.
