Banquet Bliss

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

When we say banquets, we usually picture out a scene wherein there is a big and long table graced by the heads of state in their most elegant wear. Yes, correct. Needless to say, banquets are truly lavish affairs that are usually hosted by the person of the highest echelon in a country.

banquet

But, clear out your mind from your common belief that only royals and presidents can host a banquet. Anybody can throw a banquet lunch or dinner if he has something life-changing to announce to his family members and closest friends and he just wants it to be done in a private and relaxed way where all his loved ones are seated all together.

If you want to host a banquet, all you need are 2 things:

• A not-so-big or not-so-small and quiet venue
• The best Aussie food caterer in town

If you can secure the two things mentioned above, then you are go to go. After you have closed the deal with the venue owner, you can start sitting down with your chosen food caterer to plan out the menu and the system of serving.

The beauty of having food caterers these days is that you can entrust everything to them from the foods to the venue arrangement.

And you? You can just be a passive, hands-off banquet host. All you have to do is sit comfortably, lay down everything to them and you will be the happiest and most relaxed client. Prepare yourself to be astonished to see how well they have transformed the venue into an enchanting place, conducive to be a room for a blissful banquet.

And the highlight of the evening aside from your very important announcement, the FOODS! Of course! Since when did foods become second in a party?

bliss

Whether you like it or not, sometimes, the event itself is just secondary to the reason why your guests come- it is always the food they are looking forward to.

With this, plan a really good menu and that means you have a perfect combination of dishes that will go well with each other. Remember to have a light starter so guests would not feel full immediately.

For a successful banquet dinner, make the environment a relaxing one. Be comfortable and natural while your guests are enjoying the mouthwatering meal courses served by the dashing waiters and gorgeous waitresses you can request from MyCaterer.

For a Cheaper and Chipper Cocktail Party

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Cocktail parties are the most relaxing events where you can just simply roam around from one cocktail table to another and enjoy the company of your friends. It is a chance for you to meet new acquaintances as well or probably meet a potential love or business partner.

cocktail-glasses

A cocktail party has a lighter mood compared to formal ones, with the guests having full autonomy where they want to go and who they want to talk to. This is the primary reason why young adults would usually prefer to throw cocktail parties rather formal, sit-down ones.

To have your cocktail party cheaper and chipper, all you need to have is a really good food caterer- a professional one of course. Aside from the preparation, cooking and presentation of cocktail foods, they will also be responsible to put up, arrange the cocktail tables and beautify the entire venue with eclectic adornments to give the place a cooler ambiance and chic look.

Mini slices of pizza with an assortment of toppings
• Cocktail sausage rolls
• Meat and vegetable skewers
• Cheese and spinach triangles
• California Maki
• Cheese and dip platter
• Gourmet finger sandwiches
• Tiny lemon squares
• Dried fruits and nuts

Don’t forget that you need to have a menu which can also be enjoyed by your vegetarian friends. If you do so, they’ll always grace your party event. Try out MyCaterer for your catering needs.

Save on your Food Caterer

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Parties are costly. This is an undeniable fact. But still, no matter how expensive throwing a party can be, we would always shake off the ‘Oh gad it’s so expensive’ thought and push through with it anyway because parties are fun, aren’t they?

the sydney catering boys with new dishes

They can give you the time to pull yourself away from all the stresses your school, work or family life is giving you and focus on something different like the party details- theme, food, etc.

Since food is, let’s say, the heart and soul of a party, you can expect that you will spend much more on this than other party details.

However, there are always effective ways to save on your food caterer. All you have to do is to be a little wiser and practical. But of course, you shall never ever take the idea of not hiring a food caterer because it will be more costly and stressful on your part.

Here are sure ways to save on your Aussie food caterer without compromising the quantity and quality of your dishes. Read on!

Weigh the pros and cons of every choice. Before you decide whether it will be a sit-down, station or buffet style, you have to write down the pros and cons of each. After you have written all, then and there you will know which style can make you save a lot without disappointing your guests.

Find the Best Aussie Caterer– There are lot of great food caterers and you must not only rely to word of mouth that “oh this caterer is really good etc etc etc.”

You should see and taste it for you to know that indeed this caterer is excellent! And one more thing, you and your caterer shall have a good working relationship to make things flow smoothly…and perhaps you may get a discount for being such a sweet client.

corporate-catering-buffet

Ask for Cheaper but still Yummy Substitutes. If your food caterer finally laid down the menu for your party, ask him or her if there are possible substitutes to these dishes but are still delicious. For example, chicken galantina is expensive. Ask about roasted rosemary chicken instead. It’s still yummy, isn’t it?

As an expert suggestion, why not try MyCaterer?
