Tips for outside catering
With the festive season upon us here are our top 10 party planning tips to help you celebrate in style...
1. Let’s get organised –
Choose your date, venue & guest list. Don’t forget to keep proof of booking & payment – just in case.
2. Don’t make things too complicated –
Too many options can be overwhelming & often a waste of time & money.
3. The people make the party –
Remember just because you love something it doesn’t mean that your guests will. Be sure to consider the generation & backgrounds of your guests.
4. Be sure to send out invites in good time…...
But never too early. 3 – 4 weeks is usually enough time for guests to make arrangements but not so long that they forget.
5. Let me entertain you –
Don’t forget the music to create the right ambience as well as any other party games to ensure guests don’t get bored.
6. Dinner Is Served …………………
7. Don’t forget dessert………… .
Everyone loves a treat, especially after a few drinks so be sure to have them snacks handy for later in the evening.
8. LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION –
Good lighting can really set the mood & don’t forget those selfie sticks to capture those all-important snaps
9. Relax & don’t let stress spoil the fun –
Planning ahead of time can help keep those stress bunnies at bay
10. Greet your guests –
Be sure to make them feel welcome & accept any gifts gracefully
