Catering for 21st Birthday Parties

21st Birthday Party Catering

A person’s 21st birthday is one of the most important birthdays of them all. For that reason why not make it a day to remember by organising a reliable caterer to do the party food. My Caterer will provide you with 3 competitive quote for top caterers who specialise in Birthday Catering in the catering industry.

We think that a theme makes the night more memorable since it gets people involved and makes the party distinctive. It helps with decisions about food and music. It can be used as a means of self-expression since it could bring out the personality of the party boy or girl. Just use your imagination! Here are some suggestions:

  • Casinos are a good theme because you can organise themed activities and games. Activities eliminate the boredom that mixed with alcohol leads to trouble.
  • Hollywood – Get some guests to be paparazzi outside and take photos of people as they arrive. Present a video of the guest of honour later and introduce it like a movie premiere.
  • Colours make good themes, so do letters of the alphabet. Usually the initial of the party boy or party girl’s first name.
  • 60s/70s/80s themes are good fun. Easy for everyone to costume and the music selects itself. The year the person was born is another possibility.
  • Pool parties, cruises and discos are popular. Here are a couple of more outrageous options: wedding theme, sci-fi, car rally, sleaze, progressive party…
  • Fancy dress (well obviously) but note that this might not work if everyone plans to party on afterwards somewhere else.

Don’t forget the cake!

This is probably the last birthday that you can put one candle for each year of age on the cake without hiding the cake completely. Go for it! Don’t forget, as well, the tradition of the “key to the door”. You could use this as a decoration, or even bake a cake the shape of a key.

10 Great Tips for a New Year cocktail party

Monday, November 29th, 2010

cocktail party food

It’s the peak of the cocktail party season and time to pull out all the stops to create a fantastic get-together that will be the the highlight of the year which will last until New Year.

Cocktail parties used to last only a couple of hours either side of sunset but these days they are often an all-night affair while some even carry on until the sun rises!

Ideally, that’s just the way it should happen. But on the down side this means you have to prepare a little better and add a bit more food and drink .The guests don’t lack for anything as they start celebrating the end of the year.

Mr Fingerfood have put together a their top cocktail party entertaining tips.

  1. First of all, make a list of all the things that need to be considered: How many guests? What’s your budget? Do you have enough seating, tables, cutlery and glasses for everyone?
  2. Send out invites in good time – you’re not the only one throwing a party this time of year. The Care2 network has beautiful e-cards, and be sure to follow up with a quick phone call.
  3. Venue: It’s always best to host your party at your own home, as you are familiar with your surroundings. It also saves you money.

    That said, a stylish marquee tent can be adorned with sheer linens and fairy lights that twinkle against the evening sky, instantly extending your entertaining area.

    If you’re hiring a venue, ensure it’s clean, has parking, kitchen facilities, there’s space for a music system, tables for food and a bar area.

  4. Ensure a good selection of bite-sized treats, such as cold finger foods, delicious dips and good extra virgin olive oil with crusty fresh bread, miniature warm pizzas, laden with fresh gourmet toppings and a few sweet delicacies.

  5. Arrange platters around the space of your home where you andyour guests will be moving about and keep an eye out for when you need to top up.
  6. Napkins are essential, and should be ready available to guests.
  7. There should be a variety of soft drinks, waters, wines and champagne. Or you could mix up large pitchers of fruity cocktails rimmed with flavoured salts. And don’t forget, one can never have enough ice.
  8. Good lighting sets the mood; use huge candles, dim lighting or beautiful pieces of art lamp work (feather lights) to soften and compliment the surroundings.
  9. Hook up your I-Pod to the house music system and play a mix of your favourite tunes. Or keep a stack of easy listening CDs close at hand, like the complete collection of Café del Mar and the global sounds of Putumayo.
  10. Don’t forget to tell the neighbours you’re having a party! Or, if all else fails, invite them along.

What to do for NYE?

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

There’s that question again – ‘how are you celebrating this new year?’ Will you be spending it with friends and family for a close intimate party or will you be welcoming 2011 with a big party? For those of you who are undecided, here are a few ideas and tips on how to party your way into 2011.

Head to the city

The countdown to midnight will kick off from 5pm with pre-show entertainment around Sydney harbour. There will be an Indigenous Smoking Ceremony featuring five indigenous vessels to cleanse the harbour of evil spirits followed by an Acknowledgement to Country show.

The Harbour of Light Parade will sail a 15km circuit around the harbour which will feature over 50 illuminated vessels decorated with lights to represent this year’s New Year’s Eve theme – Awaken the Spirit.

The traditional family fireworks at 9pm will give a prelude to the midnight fireworks with an eight minute choreographed performance firing from four spots on the harbour, the rooftops of some skyscrapers and also some other surprise locations.

But the big spectacular which takes 15 months of planning is the 12 minute midnight fireworks display firing from seven barges on the harbour, the rooftops of skyscrapers and of course the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Hot Spots – in and around town

With the fireworks being the highlight of each New Year’s Eve celebration, it’s always crucial to get the best seats in the house. And the only way to do it is to know where to go:

The obvious spots
• Darling Harbour
• Royal Botanic Gardens
• The Rocks
• Circular Quay

Hidden favourites
• Clarkes Point Reserve, Hunters Hills
• Blues Point Reserve, McMahons Point
• Ferry Wharf, Rose Bay
• Nielsen Park, Vaucluse
• Dudley Page Reserve

Party platters are always great so that you can have a party and have the catering sorted before hand.
