Catering for Special Events
Special events are worth celebrating with family and friends. This is a great time to invite family and friends to celebrate with you. Events can range from Engagement Parties, Birthdays, Weddings, Family Reunions and private parties.
For some it may be more suited to hold your function at a restaurant or hired venue, so all you have to do is show up on the day. This has its benefits including having other provide drinks, catering and cleaning up afterwards.
If you are looking for something more private and personal, or would prefer to hold your function at a private residence mobile caterers are perfect. You can organise a caterer in advance, select your preferred menu and time you would like service to start.
Menus can include Finger Foods, Talk & Fork, Buffets and plated meals. If you are restricted with space and seating then Finger Foods may be a perfect option. Finger Foods don’t require formal seating for everyone and with platters walked around to guests in a social environment. This will allow guests to socialise and mingle over the period of 1-2 hours.
Buffets are great if you have space, seating and a covered area for a buffet table. It is important to have a wet weather contingency with buffets. A buffet can be served after guests have arrival and settled in, allowing a substantial meal with plenty of choice for everyone.
When catering for a special event consider how long your function will be, how many guests will be attending, the space available and the type of food you would like served.
With celebrations you may choose to serve your own platters on guest arrival or serve cake or sweets to finish. At functions where guests will be drinking an abundance of food is important, especially with parties that will last several hours.
Allow room for a present table at special events. Guests tend to bring a gift at celebrations and these can quickly add up when you have large numbers of people. This will save having to find room or a place to put these when guests arrive.
Enjoy your special event and time with friends and family. These are special occasions that are designed to be enjoyed rather than rushing around last minute.
