Decide Your Catering Strategy

Make clear choices on what you are going to provide, a meal or snacks? Also think about whether you want to take charge of the cooking to add a personal touch, or cater to save stress. Remember to take into account how many people you have coming over before deciding. The consultants from Firefly Events & Project Management have advice on this aspect of party planning:

“Save yourself from catering chaos. Be clear on the invite. Are you hosting drinks and nibbles or providing dinner? Too often we see free flowing alcohol and not enough food! BBQ items such as kabobs are great fillers and you can get creative with the ingredients to ensure they are cost effective. For large groups we also suggest eco friendly disposable cups and plates, you should be enjoying yourself, not spending half the time washing up!”
