Catering Services for special events:
Other services include floral arrangements, decorations, balloons, and party favors, as well as food and beverages
Considerations before you start:
Know your budget
Know your date, time and location
The type of event
Approximate number of guests
What type of linens, china or disposable products you wish to use
Decorations, including flowers
Rental of special items
Planning the menu
Buffet service might be a more affordable option than sit-down service.
Develop a menu based on time of day and length of the event.
Are there any known food allergies or special diets your guests will require?
Do not give the caterer a lower guest count than you actually expect.
Consider alternative meal provisions for musicians, photographers, and other vendors.
Bar requirements — full bar or limited service only?
Always provide non–alcoholic options.
