• Tiny wooden-framed blackboards: You can use these mini wooden boards to label your foods. Use different colors of chalk to add vibrancy to the buffet table. You can use some nice woods in your backyard as frames for the small blackboards.

• Sunflower jars: if you have a lot of empty crystal clear jars of jams or whatever food, you may use them for your table centerpieces. Your centerpieces need not be extravagant and complicated. Fill these jars with water and use average-stemmed sunflowers for the signature countryside look.

• Flowery Twigs: Of course there will always be twigs scattered in your backyard especially if you have trees. You can use them up, put varnish to the twigs and adorn with tiny flowers. You can put them in the buffet table.

Planning for Your Child’s Baptismal Party

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Especially for first time parents, a baptismal party for the child is a momentous event that needs to be prepared well to perfection. Yes, most of us would want to have a perfect party for our little one. Baptismal party is not only our way of thanking heavens for the little angel but also of telling the whole world that we are proud parents – parents at last! The same is true with grandparents. As a matter of fact, it will be grandparents who would be more eager in setting the budget for baptismal parties for the little angel.

checklist

What are the things that must be included into the consideration in setting the budget for baptismal parties in Sydney?

Venue. Like any party, baptismal parties must be hosted in a specific venue. Would you want to have it in a cozy restaurant? Or at a spacious hall while food is being attended to by caterers? Do you prefer to have at your home? Well, if you plan to have it at home then you may need to spend for venue rentals and other fees.

Decorations. Decorations are imperative in parties, baptismal or not. For a personalized baptismal party, you can always hire party organizers. They will be responsible for the decorations and other necessary arrangements.

Program. Also, you might need to prepare for a short program. Perhaps, you would like to give a short talk about how you blessed you are to have your first born. You may also give the proud grandparents the chance to talk. Have some party music for your friends and other guests. Party organizers can attend to that.

Food. Above all, food must be your primary concern. Prepare a good menu for everybody. In most cases, the largest chunk will be consumed by food. Nevertheless, it will all be worth it. If you are in a tight budget, Sydney caterers can help you come up with a more cost-effective menu plan without having to compromise the quality of food. You can still have your favorite finger food and desserts. Make sure you contact them long before the date you plan to have your little angel baptized.

Do you sense that your employees are no longer motivated with work? Do you feel like they are already dreaded having to wake up in the morning and work? If yes, then it’s about time you revitalize them.

No time to treat them out? No worries! All you need to do is call up professional office caterers in Sydney. They will bring all the food you want straight into your office. With this, you can have all the chances to sit down and eat delicious meal with them. It is as well the perfect time you talk to them in a more casual and personal way. Perhaps, this is what they have been waiting from you.

If you don’t have the idea on how to set up an office party, then here are some helpful and solid ideas for a more exciting, fun and of course, sumptuous office party in Sydney.

Buffet catering is a brilliant idea.

Instead for ordering individual lunch plates for your employees, why not serve them more food selection through buffet catering? Doing so ensures you that even the picky eaters would grab the food on the table. Additionally, it is the most cost-effective way to hold your office party.

Hire the professionals.

You can’t just call any available caterers in Sydney. You have to make sure that you hire caterers who have solid experience in office catering. However, before you finally decide who to call up and hire, there are some things you need to prepare.

oPick a schedule you are sure your employees will all be there – no fieldwork of business trip. If there’s none, tell them to at least come back to the office at the time of the party.

o Decide on the catering menu you want to be included in the buffet. It may be great that you ask suggestions from the caterer, but bear in mind that they may not be familiar with your employees. You may already have the idea of what they are like. With this, it is best that you choose the menu on your own. Alternatively, ask someone from the office floor to help you with the food selection.

o Prepare the space for the catering service. Buffet catering is not good when the space is too cramped. It creates a more stressful environment rather than a happy and exciting one. Preparing the space alone gives you the opportunity to mingle with your employees. Ask their help when preparing the place. They’d be glad you did.

o Book early. If you want to save more on the catering service, be sure you book online. Caterers in Sydney give you discounts for early booking. If you are in a rush, it won’t be a problem still. These caterers are experts with rush orders. Additionally, don’t forget to go over with all the important details such as the date and time of the party, food and service add-ons.

With all these solid ideas, you will now be ready for your office party with the best caterers in Sydney. Your employees will surely be glad that you spend a meal with them with a bunch of food options on the table.

Secrets of a Successful Catering Business

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Like any other career, a catering business involves a combination of hard work, training, and perfect skill to succeed. As a caterer, apart from the best quality of food, you need to handle other crucial business matters like customer relations, accounting and marketing. This means there are a lot more you have to deal with beyond food. So what does it take to succeed in a catering business?

Cooking

Of course, a catering business is basically about food. A beautiful venue with impeccable service won’t just cut it if the food prepared is awful. As a caterer, it is best that you have enough cooking experience so you can easily create recipe substitutions and plan menus. Most importantly, a caterer must be aware of the latest food safety laws and comply with it.

Customer Service

Clients and caterers work together to create a specific menu. As a caterer, you need to be courteous and tactful, and even diplomatic since there are instances you may have to convince a client to substitute a certain menu. Good communication skill is just as important to achieve a successful catering event. Remember that satisfied customers make the best recommendations and a word-of-mouth from them is actually an effective advertising of your catering business.

Flexibility

There are instances when recipes need to be adjusted to deal with common issues like food allergies. At times, cooking methods may also be varied for personal preferences or religious dietary requirements. The more imaginative you get, the more likely you are to instill confidence in your clients along the process.

Attention to Detail

Aside from paying close attention to your menu, you are also in charge of table arrangements, decorations, and food presentation. From setting up a dining room to running and clearing a venue, all these are primary considerations of a caterer.
