Cool Ideas for Your Party

Whether you work in a professional kitchen or plan to host a party, catering requires a sharp skillset.

A good caterer is highly organised and knowledgeable about preparing large quantities of food. They can send dishes out to diners or keep party food flowing without missing a beat.

How Much Food Do You Need for Your Event?

The amount of food you need for your event will depend on how many people are planning to attend. We've created a sample menu, though, with recommended portion sizes that you can use as a guideline to ensure that you have enough food for all of your guests.

Appetizer: Barbecue meatballs, 3 meatballs per person
Salad: Caesar salad, 3 oz. or 1 cup per person
Side dish: Potato salad, 5 oz. per person
Entree: Grilled chicken, 6 oz. per person
Drink: Lemonade, 14 fl. oz. per person
Dessert: Apple pie, 1 slice per person

Buffet or Served?

Should you serve your food from a buffet or should you serve portioned plates at your family reunion or catered event? The answer will depend on whether you prioritize customer happiness or cost and food waste. Buffet style service is a great way to please guests because it gives them a variety of options to choose from and allows them to eat as much as they want. The downsides of buffet service at your catered event is that it's more expensive because you need to prepare more types of food and in larger quantities. Additionally, buffet service can lead to increased food waste, especially if you have several dishes that are more popular than others.

8 Days a Week

You are probably not surprised that Saturday is the most common day to get married. It’s convenient, it’s traditional, and it’s what most people are used to. And because it’s the most common day, it’s also the most expensive. Many wedding reception sites will charge up to 50% less if you book their location for a Sunday or Friday. Why? Because they typically don’t get weddings for those days, it’s like extra income for them and everybody wins.
