Part 2 will discuss more top holiday party catering tips.
When planning a dinner party, plan for a salad or starter, such as crabcakes or soup. The main course, a side dish, and dessert will follow this. Guests should get 45 to 60 minutes for appetizers. Half an hour is too short because most people will arrive late for a holiday party. Dinner should take about 90 minutes. Once dessert is served, people will start leaving.
When catering your holiday party, you can make it less expensive by ordering reasonably easy dishes. Doing so helps due to time constraints.
Tastefully decorating your holiday party will help it become a success. Consult with experts and friends. Read books and blogs to get ideas on holiday party decorations that will help make your celebration memorable. Part of the presentation is music. You can get help by using Amazon Music or Spotify to create a list of holiday music that almost everyone will enjoy.
If planning a work holiday party, consult ahead of time with management regarding the company policies regarding alcoholic beverages. Typically holiday parties plan for 2-3 glasses of wine or beer per guest. Parties with more than 25 guests should consider hiring a bartender. This will help decrease consumption because guests will not be overpouring from bottles themselves.
If the holiday party is going to be at home, seriously think about hiring a dishwasher. There is nothing like a pile of dishes at a sink that will ruin the afterglow of a wonderful holiday party.
