How To Cater For A Proper Party
Having friends round from time to time can be a lot of fun and when it’s just a small group of you, it really doesn’t take much organising. But if you want to go all out and have a big party, you might find it a bit more daunting than you at first thought.
To help you with party catering in Lincolnshire, make a big checklist of everything you need to get done before the big day so you know you won’t miss out anything important.
You also need to think about the size of your kitchen and whether it’s able to cope with an influx of people. How big is your fridge, for example? Clear it out before the day so you can fit everything in it and make sure you stack properly so that everything stays cold.
To help save space, why don’t you chill your drinks in advance and then use cool bags to keep them cold before your guests arrive. This will keep the fridge free for more important produce.
With regards to the food, you might want to show off how good you are in the kitchen but catering for a lot of people is difficult and if you’ve never done it before you could come unstuck quite quickly – which will take all the fun out of the party for you. Instead, why don’t you have a buffet catered for you, so you can easily feed your guests without having to stress and worry.
You can even hire trained staff at the same time from the same company so you don’t even have to hand canapes and platters out yourself.
Having a mix of recipes, both hot and cold, is also a good idea because it means that you won’t be struggling to keep everything hot – and you don’t run the risk of your guests feeling a little disgruntled and disappointed with the food. And, of course, you should always make sure you have more food and drink than you need so that people aren’t left wanting.
Doing as much as you can in the days leading up to the event is also wise so that you’re not panicking and rushing around on the day itself. You want to be the hostess with the mostest, after all, and not charging about without time to speak to anyone.
