A birthday party is a fantastic chance for friends and family to get together and celebrate their loved one on their special day. Whether you’re organising a birthday party for yourself or someone else, you know how much work it involves. The food, drinks, guest list, decorations, party favours—it’s quite a job! Depending on how much time you can spare, how good a cook you are, and how many guests you’re inviting, you may want to hire a professional caterer to prepare some or all of the food for your party.
There’s no need for you to cater a birthday party by yourself. A professional caterer has catered for hundreds of birthdays, gaining invaluable knowledge and experience along the way. Not only is it easier for a professional caterer to prepare all the food for your party, but they may also be able to do it more economically than if you do it yourself. They know how to get the most from your budget and know exactly how much food and drinks it will take to satisfy your guests. From small intimate gatherings to large birthday parties held in exquisite venues, professional party caterers have the knowledge it takes to make birthday party catering easy.
If you want to serve your guests yourself, then Flavours Catering is perfectly happy to drop off your order. Some caterers, including Flavours Catering + Events guarantee on-time delivery of drop-off orders with a money-back guarantee. Be sure to look for this option when comparing possible caterers, so that you have peace of mind when it comes to your catering showing up on time.
Drop-off catering works well with many styles of birthday party. Flavours Catering + Events has platters of finger foods perfect for cocktail parties, sandwich assortments for casual luncheons and trays of hearty dishes for buffets. With drop off catering, you can prepare a few of your personal specialties for your guests while letting the caterer supply everything else. Or you can let the caterer provide all the birthday party food while you handle all the other arrangements. You can even have your caterer provide the drinks for your birthday party, sparing you from having to purchase and transport all the beverages and ice yourself.
If you’re looking for full service catering for your birthday party, then Flavours Catering + Events can provide you with food and beverage waiters as well as onsite chefs. They also offer equipment hire from glasses, cutlery and crockers to tables, tablecloths and chairs.
An experienced caterer should be able to guide you through the process of creating a custom menu for your birthday party. Follow your own taste and style when deciding what to order, but listen to your caterer when it comes to how much food you should order. A reputable caterer will not push you to order more food than you need. Instead, they will use their experience in party catering to make sure that your guests don’t go hungry. If you don’t know how many of your guests require a special diet, such as vegetarian, gluten-free or dairy free, your party caterer should be able to estimate how many special items you need to order. Your caterer will also make sure that you select a variety of dishes, so that you give your guests a balanced meal.
A catered cocktail, canapé and finger food birthday party is a well-priced alternative to a formal banquet style function. Your birthday party caterer’s event coordinators can create a complete package for your birthday function. That way you can have the birthday party of your dreams without doing all the work yourself. Hiring a professional caterer is a great way to throw a memorable birthday party, with delicious unforgettable food.
