Meal time during an event is the most anticipated segment, and sometimes the most impressionable for guests; this is why catering is an important component to a successful event. Event planners and party hosts commonly outsource catering services for unique and diverse food alternatives. A unique catering plan can enhance any event’s ambience by bringing together the theme and the food, harmoniously.
Catering to Enhance Your Theme
One of the greatest things about catering, is that is can chameleon to any theme, event, or season. Let’s say a person would like to host a chocolate lovers’ party. It would be possible for them to have a catering company provide a beautiful chocolate buffet, with a menu spread unique to its theme. Catering services allow the possibilities of opening with a selection of hot chocolate beverages and adult chocolate-flavored cocktails for appetizers, followed by a beautiful spread of dessert finger foods for a chocolate fountain. Catering can provide four course chocolate dinners if you wanted! These are fun and creative ways catering can add pizazz to a great party or event.
The same service could be provided to a person hosting an event to promote healthy eating. The only difference is that healthy fruits and vegetables would take the place of chocolate. Catering services can step it up a notch by creating amazing carved fruit displays and elaborate fruit trays. There could be a juice bar blending fresh smoothies and juices or grilling station firing up chicken and veggie kabobs. The options are endless when a catering company is outsources for any event.
This can even be done for formal events like weddings and graduations. If there is an underlying theme behind the ceremonies, the food can reflect that theme. If a couple is getting married on the beach and wants a luau wedding reception, a catering service can produce an entire tropical-themed menu for the guests. Imagine a whole roast pig turning over an open fire, mango pineapple salsas, and guava margaritas. Key lime chicken entrees and grilled Mahi Mahi could accompany the tropical spread as well. Again, the options are endless when it comes to creative catering ideas.
