What’s a party or a special event without the glitz and glam? Decorations and displays are some of the most important catering supplies to consider when planning your next event! To help you start your list, decorations often include: 

  • Cake or dessert displays/stands
  • Risers
  • Centerpieces
  • Vases
  • Photo opportunities/backdrops 

Even these simple items can make your event look your best. 

Table and Dinnerware 

While decor and display are fun to prepare, looking into table sets and dinnerware is also important. To keep broken dishes and cleaning to a minimum, it is best to invest in the following materials: 

  • Plastic utensils
  • Paper napkins
  • Plastic, easy-to-wash plates and dishware
  • Small appetizer plates 

If food needs to be covered, foil pans are your best bet to keep costs low and food protected—these essential catering supplies for your El Paso event.

Buffet Equipment 

Serving a variety of food your guests can choose from is one of the best things you can do to ensure everyone is pleased. But looking into a catered buffet isn’t just about the food. Catering a buffet means looking into catering supplies such as fuel cells to keep food warm and fresh. You will also need tongs or large serving spoons. And, of course, food and buffet tables require just as much decor and attention as other tables in the room! 

Beverage Station 

You also have to keep guests pleased and happy with more than enough beverages for everyone. Beverage stations often require much of their own equipment, including: 

  • Beverage dispenser
  • A source of hot water
  • Ice tubs to keep drinks cold
  • Assortment of glasses or cups 
  • A variety of teas and sugar 

Do not make the simple mistake of purchasing too little ice; you want to ensure drinks are kept cool for your guests!

Seating Arrangements

As you may already know, you must account for your guests by providing enough tables and seats for everyone to attend comfortably. But if you have outdoor events, these materials are the best to consider: 

Benches, drink and cocktail tables, bars, and other catering supplies can work in any event setting! 

Cleaning Supplies 

Once your El Paso event ends, you will have to worry about cleaning up. For most venues, the client or customer is often responsible for all trash removal. If this is the case for your venue, you will need to consider the following: 

  • Garbage cans 
  • Handwashing and sanitizing stations
  • Cleaning towels
  • Disposable gloves

Stocking up on these supplies will help your clean-up duties after your event! 

Serving and Food Storage 

Should you have a good amount of food left over, it will also be up to you to properly store and put food away. Some caterers provide storage when they send food to your event or venue, but this may not always be the case. 

It is also important to hold onto serving supplies to help you store and pick up food.
