Party For a Big Crowd
When you plan a party you think about your loved ones, decorations, themes, places, and most of all the food, there are a few things needs to be considered. Is the party a baby shower, graduation party, bachelor party, birthday party, wedding party etc.
You need to think about how much budget you can afford and how much you’re willing to spend. Try to compromise somewhere between these two values so you can have a reasonably good time without breaking your budget. Of course there are always other expenses to consider—decorations, paper plates, goody bags, renting stainless chafing dishes or other catering supplies, buffet tables etc. Alcohol anyone? It turns out, this will probably be your biggest expense, but it all depends on the kinds of friends you have and how of a crowd you’re anticipating.
It is always more relaxing to have any kind of party at home. No banquet or restaurant can replace the comfortably and accessibility. But of course the special occasion sometime requires getting an unusual location or different party location.or just a simple dinner party?
If you are having breakfast, people generally prefer lighter, healthier food and will eat less. If you are having brunch or lunch, make sure to have a main course food and enough fruits and vegetables as salad tends to demolishes hunger, if given the right proportions of substances. For a dinner party, try pasta, bread, and salad for a simple meal plan. For an Indian crowd, samosas (as an appetizer entries), two main healthy dishes, sauteed vegetables, rice, naan (and Indian flat bread) and dessert is sufficient.
No matter how big or small the event is, your decision primarily depends on the people and the type of event. If your guests are regular family and friends, they may want your homemade specialty. If they are more open about the food preparations, then you can try something more experimental, like Greek food. Always make sure to check if anyone is allergic to any kinds of nuts or eggs. Also, be sure to check if any of your guests are vegans or vegetarians and manage accordingly.
When considering chafing dishes for catering purposes, there are several questions you need to consider. For example, how is the dish planning to be used and what kind of china will be used. Most of the nicer catering chafing dishes are those that meet satisfactory requirements in size and adjustable features—they can be used as a fitting lid to keep food at the correct temperature or as a warming station to make your party delightful.
One thing is for sure—don’t forget to have a good time, because you’re the one planned the party, so of course you deserve to enjoy the spectacular outcome of your hard work!
