Choosing A Caterer

Pick the best caterer for your holiday fiesta.

The holidays are upon us and you are
probably thinking of throwing a holiday
bash for your closest friends and family. The
pressure is on! The food served has to be perfect
or you will risk being the brunt of bad foodie
jokes for the rest of the year. Here are some
things to consider when choosing a caterer.

1. Venue and budget.
One of the first things you have to do is to
decide on the party details. Caterers are busiest
during the holidays so ensure you book one
well in advance. Speak to several caterers on
how much it will cost to feed your guests. Play
around with the numbers and negotiate a good
deal (somewhere along the lines of free dessert,
setup and so on).

2. Taste before ordering.
Set up a meeting with the caterer you have in

with glossy photos of their food but nothing
beats tasting the real thing.

3. Add-ons.
Depending on the scale of your event, most
catering companies will throw in some add-ons.
Examples include staffing, serve ware, tables
and chairs and decoration. Negotiate with them
before making any decisions as these add-ons
may total up to more than what you expected
to shell out.

Holiday parties are important so keep in mind that every detail matters. You may think no one will care about the napkins or state of the silverware, but in actual fact even those miniscule details count. A good caterer will ensure that your event happens exactly the way you want it to. Happy holidays and good luck!
