Showers

There are some things in life that are innately memorable. Weddings, baby showers and bridal showers are among these. During these events it’s important to focus on the guests, especially the guests of honor, but with so many details to attend to, the food may fall to the bottom of the list when it comes to prioritizing and planning. Event organizers have a lot to do, and taking the food preparation out of the equation can be the best way to make sure that everything goes smoothly.

Stress-free food preparation

Catering is the ideal solution for busy event organizers who want to remove some of the stress and ensure that one of the most important aspects of any gathering, the food, is prepared perfectly and presented in a beautiful, stress-free way. It frees up time for the person organizing the event and allows them to enjoy the results of their planning efforts along with the other guests instead of worrying about the food.

Food safety

A primary concern at any event is food safety because if food is not handled or stored properly guests can become extremely ill. Caterers are trained in the correct method of food handling, preparation and storage to ensure that illnesses are not transmitted to guests from contaminated food. Salmonella, E coli and staphylococcus are all extremely dangerous, especially to pregnant women and children. These are commonly found in food that has not been properly stored or maintained during serving, and caterers are aware of how to prevent the spread of these bacteria, whereas the average even planner may not know how.

Pampering

Besides the guest of honor, doesn’t the person who planned the big event deserve a little pampering for their efforts? Guests also expect a little extra special treatment during such events. Catering provides a sense of luxury and pampering that gives any event that little bit of something ‘extra’ that makes it truly memorable.

It’s important to choose a reputable, knowledgeable catering company in order to make any event a success. Event planners should keep in mind a few things when choosing a caterer.

  • Does the price of the catering fit into the budget for the event?
  • How many guests will be fed?
  • Are there any special dietary needs to be considered?

Catering makes any wedding, baby or bridal shower extra special and more enjoyable for everyone involved, including the event planner.

    Everyone had a great time and loved the food. We continue to be asked who provide the food, so hopefully you will receive referrals. The CAKE was the most memorable - the chocolate cake was so moist and delicious. Guests thought it was clever to serve fruit on each plate along with their choice of white or chocolate! And the punch recipe turned out fabulous too - thank you!

    The meal you provided for the Blue Springs South High School Jaguar Pride Marching Band in St. Charles served us well.  EVERYTHING DISAPPEARED like magic as the kids went down the food line and filled their plates.  We had the right amount of food.  Those who wanted seconds were able to do so, yet we did not have any leftovers! Thank you for great food, prompt delivery and the perfect amount of food.  We appreciate your work to deliver a hot meal to the Blue Springs South High School marching band.
