As an organiser, have a good look at your guests’ demographics. Are you attendees millennials, oldies, or a combination of them? Is there an ethnic background you have to consider?
PREPARE FOOD CHOICES
Having a lot of choices is difficult for the caterer, the staff and yourself. But, with careful planning, you just need 2-3 options for each meal. Consider different dietary restrictions and different types of food and flavours. But be careful, no one wants clashes in their palate and in their tummy after the celebration!
COORDINATE THE MEAL TIMING
If your program will run for 1 hour only, you don’t need to prepare a 7-course meal that the guests won’t appreciate. The same goes with the long duration of events – meal timing has to be considered so the guests have energy and have something to munch on throughout the event. Coordinate with your servers and waiters the correct time to send the food to the guests. This looks minor but your attendees will definitely appreciate that you took the time to consider it. Good customer service with professional staff is the most noticeable thing in every event. Your host’s hospitality always astounds you. You never forget if a server has been rude or didn’t entertain your request. And mostly – no one forgets about bad customer service. No matter how beautiful the venue is, how tasty the foods are if the staff is unprofessional, it’s the only thing you will remember of that event. So, hire a food server, barista, or waiters that are known to take care of their guests. Hiring a topless waiter will ensure you have a staff with great charisma and looks to die for. Not only do they know how to serve the foods and drinks, but also how to work for the crowd. Imagine a crowd that feasts on foods served and the guys serving. Your party will definitely be unforgettable and will be the talk of the town for a while.
