Here are some things to take into consideration prior to planning your event:

  • What is your style: How do you want to provide food for your guests?
    • Tray service elegant finger foods circulating on trays for guests to mingle and nibble.
    • Family Style Food platters served at each table. An intimate option, let your guest break bread together.
    • Plated meals a more traditional approach with sit down meals
    • Buffet
    • Stations scattered groupings of food. A great way to keep a flow going & encourages people to mingle
  • Head count: How many people are you feeding?
  • Theme: Have you established a theme?
  • Venue: will it be outside, is there a food holding area, is the weather permitting, is the space equipped with tables, would the flow of traffic be congested ,etc?
  • Diets: Are there any food restrictions amongst your guests – nuts, gluten, vegetarian, celiac?
  • Budget: Have you established a budget that you are comfortable with?
