Trying a Whole New Sydney Caterers Finger Food

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Planning a party is always fun no matter how tiring it can be. But feeding guests of over 50 people can be a bit tricky if you do not hire a good caterer.

21st-birthday-marquee

Food catering services in Sydney are a dime a dozen. It’s easy to call up just anyone to deliver you food for the party you are planning. But then, not all of them can deliver when it comes to offering wide variety of good tasting food that fits any party planner’s theme and budget.

I had a horrible experience once of using a catering service that “forgot” to bring desserts and beverages while 50 people are waiting. As luck would have it, we just finished all the ice creams and fruits around the house.

I had to resort to buying cakes from the grocery store and while they tasted fine, it certainly did not alleviate my disappointment. While my guests were nice about it, I am sure our party did make a good impression.

It took me a lot not to attack someone, even though I am a naturally calm person. I cannot imagine why caterers can FORGET their foods, when it’s the thing they should be the experts of.

Another friend even shared to me her ‘funny’ catering service. Her caterers took it upon themselves to deviate from the plan of beef and chicken and served pork and seafood instead. The thing is, half of her guests were people who do not eat pork or allergic to seafood! Truly, these experiences show you that the catering service you hire can make or break your event.

Now that I am planning another event, I am decided to use All Suburbs Catering Service. I have heard raving reviews about them here in Sydney. They are professional and thorough with their services. The prices of their packages are reasonable too.

There’s a package that would only cost you 12.95 dollars per person and yet you already have roast beefs to serve 50 people or more! At 19.95 dollars per person, you can already have an all-out BBQ party! This is going to be perfect for my next event because most of the guests are my son’s classmates and their families who love BBQs to bits.

I read they also have a package consisting of vegetables and salads. This will be perfect when my mom celebrates her 85th Birthday next month and we’ll have most of her friends over. Who says oldies cannot have fun and gorge in good-tasting food? Can’t wait to experience All Suburbs Catering Service, I am sure they will not disappoint.

Buffet Catering Service Completes Your Event

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

If you are planning an event and you want it to stand out, do not just focus on the themes, look or designs. The food you serve can make or break it. Guests will hardly remember the colors of the balloons or flowers if they went home hungrier than when they came to the party or ate something harmful to their stomachs.

fresh-buffet-food

However, you do not need to personally worry that much about how to serve the food that most guests would appreciate and remember even after they go back to their homes. Instead, leave the food to the experts, hire a buffet catering service. A buffet is the perfect solution to providing what each of your guests wants to eat.
Because everyone is different in taste and preference, they can just go up to the buffet table and choose for themselves. If you are going to cook the food alone, no amount of preparation will be enough to cover a lot of choices.

Buffet catering services can offer you a hundred food choices if you like, depending on your budget. Buffet catering service can cover all types of foods such as finger foods, spit roasts, hot and cold platters, finger foods, desserts and the like, depending on what your event is all about. You can also be sure that the food will taste good and fresh. You can even schedule food tasting sessions if you want to be that hands-on in preparing the food. An event is not event without good food.

Aside from good food, hiring a buffet catering service can make your event an instant success because you can have wait staff that would provide ample and adequate services to your guests.

Catering

Instead of running around your event yourself catering to what your guests need, no matter if the event is classy or informal, having staff that can help you can make the party more efficient, if not pleasing to the eyes of the guests.
A trusted buffet catering Service Company not only provides you with good food, they can also offer good people to help around. You can enjoy the event along with your guests instead of worrying about their needs. Most events can take hours; so instead of wearing yourself out, allow the buffet catering service personnel to assist you with the presentation if you want.

You have your theme, your designs and programs, you can be sure the buffet catering service people will accommodate your preferences by giving you food that will complement the theme of the party and personnel that will complete the ambiance of your event. Ensure your party will be the talk of the town by hiring a great buffet catering service that understands food and understands what your event means to you.

Mom: Kid’s Party (Pooper) Planner

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Here’s an interesting confession from a mom who learned her lesson after messing up her kid’s birthday party.

Last year I was in a thrifty mode. I saved everything. I used coupons for almost everything. I even decided to save on my own son, Luke’s birthday party. Instead of calling in buffet catering services like I used to for my older daughter’s parties, or what my mom used to when throwing parties for me, I decided I want to cook. I know buffet catering services are a dime a dozen and everyone use them for parties and other important events so I really do not understand what came over me.

Cooked for the 80 guests made up of little kids around the neighbourhood and Luke’s schoolmates as well as their chaperones sounded like no biggie at that time. I thought I’ll whip up some spaghetti, fried chicken, meatballs, ice cream and cake (homemade! How brave…) like magic. I thought, how hard can it be? I cooked spaghetti and chicken all the time for my kids. I overestimated myself. I am no cook, especially for such number of guests and on such a tight schedule. The only reason everything got prepared was because my adrenaline was so high I really thought I became superwoman for a day.

Unfortunately, most of the food was wasted. My spaghetti was bland, my chicken was overcooked, and my cake was mushy. Homemade ice cream has got to be the worst decision I made in my life. I never done something like that before, and I relied on some recipe I found online. The result was some salty goop that no one in my family liked to look at, let alone eat. Good thing though, my husband saw the result even before the guests arrived and bought tubs of ice cream at the grocery. At least the kids enjoyed some ice cream.

The kids were too busy playing they barely noticed the taste of the spaghetti and chicken, but the adults certainly did. I got so many snide comments I literally wanted to vanish into thin air. That would have helped if I can, it would have add some magic to my kid’s party. How I wished I just dialled that number and called in the buffet catering services, they are always more than prepared to cater to parties and events, and they always have good choices of foods too! If I called in the buffet catering services, I am sure they would have not thought of serving boring foods on spaghetti and meatballs, too. Quite the original, I am.

This year though, I do not plan on making the same mistake on Luke’s 7th party. It does not mean I plan to spend all out and splurge. Maybe I’ll hire some clowns or magicians though. Definitely, however, I plan to revert back to my buffet catering days. There are many catering services out there that are affordable and yet offer delectable foods both kids and adults will enjoy. This year, there will be no showing off of my cooking skills. Let’s have the experts take over the food!

Some Helpful Tips to Find the Best Caterers

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Finding the best caterer is not easy as it is not something we normally do unless you are a professional event planner. Most people don’t really know where to start – how to find them? what to look for? Here are some tips that might help you. Remember, it can cost you an arm and leg when you end up working with just ANY caterers out there.

events-sydney

  • Avoid the last minute search.
  • Although good caterers don’t have any troubles accepting last minute bookings, it is always best that you start your search early or preferably two months before your party. You need ample of time to polish the menu and other party details.

  • Estimate guests.
  • You have to come up with an estimate as to the number of guest such as 150 people or less. This is will help get quote fast and find a caterer who can accommodate this size based on your budget.

  • Eliminate the unfit.
  • Caterers have their specialties like serving only events like lunch meetings, corporate parties or business events. Get rid of caterers who focus on these areas if you are planning to hold a wedding party. Always ask the caterer what their area of specialty is, number of guests they can handle, how the food is served and menu. See if it matches your plan.

  • Understand the venue site’s rules.
  • Venues have their own set of rules when it comes to holding an event. This may include no cooking, no barbecues, no flames and with limited number of guests. You have to know all these things before you make the final deal with a caterer. Some venues don’t even allow outside caterers.

  • Background check.
  • Check the caterers’ references and experience. You event must not be a disaster because you hired a wrong caterer. Narrow down your choices by eliminating those with bad track records. Ask friends or relatives who have tried their services. Check out their portfolio as well.

  • Decide.
  • It is important that you have a clear picture in mind on how your party must turn out. Do you want uniformed staff serving your guests or the casual buffet? How about a bartender? Or other unique ideas you think of?

    waitress

  • Request for estimate.
  • Since you already have the complete list of your party plan, it’s time to get a quote. Make sure though that you have set a realistic budget for the catering service. Don’t expect to get your dream menu at fast food price.

    Finally, close the deal with the caterer. Don’t forget to get all the details in writing. The best caterers would provide this to you without having to ask for it. It must contain what services they deliver and what services are not.
