A party is incomplete without food. Since your event will be for only one day, you don’t have to buy the caterers equipment. All you need to do is to visit the local Packages and place your order.
Just like when renting other party supplies, start your research early enough (at least three months before the party date). This way, you will have enough time to visit different companies and see what they have.
Your table setting should consist of both functional and decorative elements. If catering a sit-down meal, you need bread plates, dinner plates, and salad plates. If you are serving a soup course, have soup bowls in place.
You will also need wine and water glasses if serving wine and coffee cups if serving coffee. Other things you should have include: water carafes, bread plates, and cutlery if you want it set.
You won’t be placing the equipment on a bare table so you will need napkins, tablecloths, and centrepieces. It’s also wise to include a few extras such as sugar, pepper, and butter.
For a great experience, display the equipment attractively. Remember, it’s common for guests to come over with their friends, so it’s always wise to have a few extra items. Wine and water glasses also easily break, and you have to replace them.
If having your event in a buffet style, you need to have buffet equipment. Some of the equipment you need include:
You should note it’s common for items to drop and break when setting up a buffet so always have a few extra items in hand. Also, remember the buffet tables need decorations. Choose those that match the party theme
Beverage Bar Equipment
For you to ensure efficient handling of drinks, you need a beverage station at your party. The equipment you need include:
Don’t forget to place a tidy wastebasket in a nearby area for guests to toss their trash.
Serving equipment makes it easy for you to distribute drinks and food for the guests. The equipment you need include: bus bins, serving trays, and water pitchers. If having plenty of guests over, you need extra bus tubs to hold the dirty dishes after clearing each serving.
When serving cold food, consider having a cooler in place.
Don’t forget to take along garbage bags to hold disposable containers and dirty linens. You also should have paper towels, hand sanitizer, tin foil, and plastic wrap
