With Holi and Eid around the corner, the festive season is on, and it’s time to relax and have fun with your friends and family. And when you are in India, festivals are an important part of the culture due to its diverse and glorious heritage, culture, and traditions. Festivals are the time when everyone just wants to have fun with loved ones, but at the same time, it is hard to imagine any festival without delicious food, snacks, and sweets.
So, when you are planning a get-together on Christmas, New Year, Diwali, Holi, or Eid, it is always a good idea to hire professional festival catering services to save your time and energy for the fun part. It is not only about families, businesses, and organizations also arranging festival parties and celebrations for their employees. A festival catering service provider can help them arrange all the food, beverages, snacks, and sweets in a way they want to celebrate with everyone.
Catering at a festival or event for a group of people is very challenging and costly without proper planning and arrangement. When you are about to hire festival catering services, there are many factors to consider to make things affordable for you. In this post, we will talk about some ways to save on catering and serving.
The first thing you should remember is that you are in full control of what and how you want. Making wrong choices or overlooking your budget could lead you to more food than you can eat or afford. Here’re some tips to help you make the right decision for your catering needs at an event or festival celebration:
Know your guest count: Don’t just take orders blindly without knowing the guest count. When you don’t know how many people are coming to your event, you cannot decide how much food and snacks you will need to serve your guests. It may lead you to order more food than you actually need. Knowing your guest count helps you make an estimate and order food items in your budget accordingly.
Decide on the delivery and serving method: There are many methods a catering service provider deliver or serve food at your place. There are typically four different ways – pick-up, drop off, buffets and banquets, and full-service catering.
- Pick up
- Drop off
- Real Display for buffets and banquets
- Full-service catering
Pick-up and drop-off methods are affordable ways to arrange food during your festival party. In these types of catering services, food is prepared at some other place and then delivered to the event location. If you want food preparation on-site or need professional assistance to prepare the tables and food serving area, then you should prefer to first two methods to meet your catering needs.
Do you need additional enhancement services: Any additional services you want to upgrade or enhance the quality of food arrangement and serving will add up to the cost. These services may include decoration, servers, bartenders, on-site chefs, and others that don’t have much to do with the food, they are just part of the enhancements. If you are celebrating just with family members and some friends, you don’t need to include these services in your catering plan to save on your budget.
