Catering for parties

Catering for parties

If you’re planning catering for a party, business event or even a wedding reception, there’s a lot to consider. That’s why you want to make sure that you are making preparations and setting up plans as far in advance as possible. You need to make sure that nothing goes wrong on the day of the party. Here are some of the things you will need to keep in mind during the planning stages for your catering:

 

Special Requests

One of the main reasons why you need to plan so far in advance when catering for parties, is for special guests. We are of course talking about the menu and whether there is anyone attending the party who requires an alternative option. For instance, you may need to provide an option for vegans, vegetarians or even those who have certain beliefs that prevent them from eating a variety of food. Caiger & Co can help here by ensuring that you are presented with a fantastic menu of food to choose from, including special selections.

 

Don’t Forget The Wine

When catering for parties and other events, you need to consider how the beverages will be served as well. For instance, you might have the wine and drinks served with the food as part of the meal. Or alternatively, you could present your guests at the party with an open door. Your choice here will determine the quantity of drinks that you need and alter the cost of your party. An open bar that you are covering will always be more expensive.

 

Cooking Arrangements

Planning in advance will allow you to calculate how much food you’re going to need for the number of guests who will be attending. As well as this, by selecting a menu, you can make sure that the times are just right for preparing the dishes. You don’t want to leave guests waiting for the food to be prepared. As soon as they sit down and order, you want to make sure their food is ready in minutes. Caiger & Co can guarantee this by making things easy for you. With an expert catering staff, they can guarantee that everything is prepared on time and cooked to perfection.

 

Budgeting

You need to make sure you are aware of how much your catering event will cost and what is including in the price. Is there anything that you will need to provide yourself such as cutlery or will everything be set up for you? Using Caiger & Co, everything will be included in the catering service, making things a lot easier for you. There will be no add-ons to the price, and this ensures you know it fits your budget as soon as you order the service.
