3 Catering Tips for Your Upcoming Holiday Party, Brookhaven, New York

Are you in charge of organizing a holiday party this season? While it might seem overwhelming, using a professional catering company will help you enjoy your party. Whether you’re interested in authentic pizza or comfort food, knowing what you will serve ahead of time makes all the difference. Below are three catering tips for your upcoming holiday party. 

3 Catering Tips to Follow for Your Holiday Party

1. Choose One Drink in Each Category

What can quickly get costly at a catered event is serving alcohol. Patrons often go for high-end liquor and specialty cocktails, which can cost a fortune. Instead, select one drink from each popular category and limit your guests to that. For example, choose one red wine, one white, and one beer. If you want a liquor-based cocktail, try creating a specialty cocktail for the event, and limit it to that.

Pass Appetizers Versus Setting Up a Buffet

cateringEstimating how much food guests will eat can be expensive and most often, wasteful. Consider hiring a dedicated staff of professional catering servers to pass small bites and hand-held food that guests can snack on while chatting. It will create an informal and fun environment your guests are sure to remember. 

Time Out Your Event

Though it might seem tedious, timing out when you want the party to begin and end can help you to create a strategy for how much food and drink you will want to serve. Plan on having cocktails ready from the start, as well as some small bites to pass around. This will prevent your guests from drinking too fast and getting too hungry as a result. Close your bar approximately twenty minutes before you want your party to end, and make sure a last call is announced.
