"The best memories are made around the dinner table". Perhaps you've heard this saying a time or two. It is absolutely true! The most powerful memories are linked to smells and tastes. Choosing a caterer that can provide a feast for the eyes and tastebuds will surely spark wonderful memories that your guests will always look back on fondly.
There are so many different ways to organize your catered reception to fit style and flavors to your hearts desires. In fact, the very word "caters" means "to provide...things desired". Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Cocktail / Hor dourves reception
- Plated / Course Dinners (a must for formal affairs!)
- Buffet Dinner
- Family Style (options placed on each table to be passed around)
- And so much more!!
PRO TIP 1: An appetizer or hor dourves reception will cost as much as a full dinner. This is because of the labor it takes to design bite sized versions, and the amount of food/materials needed is the same.
PRO TIP 2: For cocktail hours lasting MORE THAN ONE HOUR before dinner, some sort of appetizers should be provided for your guests. Even if it is a simple cheese, cracker and fruit tray.
