Whether you are catering on-site or off-site events, these parties need equal organization and planning. With suitable catering, you can rest assured that your party will be well-supplied, ultimately pleasing your guests. If you haven’t planned an event, you’ve come to the right place!
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
- Photo opportunities/backdrops
Even these simple items can make your event look your best.
Table and Dinnerware
- 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.
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!
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!
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:
- Folding tables and chairs.
- Canopies or tents for seating to be placed in.
Benches, drink and cocktail tables, bars, and other catering supplies can work in any event setting!
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.
