Perhaps you are considering a cocktail party catering service in the next few days?

In this post, we will take a glimpse at a few essential factors to consider when you plan or coordinate for party catering in West Sydney (or anywhere else in Australia for that matter). Doing so will help ensure that you offer an enjoyable and memorable experience for your guests.

Essential things to consider when planning a menu with small party catering service

Take into account the preferences of your guests

Take into consideration the overall profile of the people you are inviting to your party. That may be easy if it is your family or friends but what if you are planning a party for your colleagues at work or business associates? In that case, you have to consider preferences or some demographics that applies to most of your guests. For instance, most older people favour milder food items while young and middle-aged guests are eager to try spicy and even more “adventurous” food items.

Offer ample food choices

When you’re catering for a large number of guests, you cannot expect to please everyone with a limited number of dishes. Hence it is a good idea to serve several main dishes if only to make sure that you have something for everyone. Have your caterer serve at least two entrées along with some food items like salad and dessert courses.

Plan for guests with special dietary needs

There is no worse feeling for a host than knowing that some of your guests are not able to eat any of the food that you are serving. Hence it is a good idea to be mindful of any dietary preferences and requirements like:

  • Lifestyle choices such as vegan or pescetarian diet
  • Religious practices
  • Food intolerances
  • Allergies
