Food Catering - What Do You Need To Know About Food Catering?

Jul 9, 2008
Food is always an essential ingredient in every event and party. Events such as weddings, corporate events, family reunions or baby showers all need to have food around. In fact, when we attend an event, we will usually look forward to eat some delicious food, whether it is snacks or a full-course meal. So instead of preparing the food yourself, you can hire a food catering company to help you take care of your food requirements.

A catering service can be very helpful with taking some of the stress off you during an event. A good caterer will take care of everything such as the preparation of food and drink, dining area set up, decorations, and the clearing up of the dining area after the event.

Now, let me share with you some simple tips so that you are better prepared and your caterer will be able to execute your plan accordingly:

1. Finalizing on the location, date and time of the event. These are very important information and you must let your caterer know way before the event. Especially for the location, the caterer needs to visit the ground so as to get himself familiar with the site layout. So make sure that your caterer is comfortable with the location in advance.

2. Setting your catering budget. One way to decide your catering budget is to ask yourself how important the role of food and drink will play at your event. Are you intending to provide a sit-down dinner or a buffet for your guests? Do you want your food to match a particular theme of your event? These are the things that you need to get into consideration before deciding how much money you are going to allocate for food catering. It is also important to know how many guests are attending your event. By catering the right amount of food, you can save yourself some money and cut down on food wastage.

3. Planning with your caterer. You need to brief your caterer on the things that you expect him or her to do during the event. Also find out whether your caterer provides other services such as site decoration. Many catering services today provide a full event planning. Check with your caterer if they provide a full event planning. If so, usually they will provide you with a brochure with the service details.

So whether you are planning a corporate event or a simple birthday party for 20 close friends, let a catering company helps you with the task of food requirements and set up. Spend your time sweating on other details of the event!
