When to Call a Caterer

Have you always assumed that only big events need to be catered? That only businesses or people planning weddings need a caterer?

No? Oh good. Then you already know that a caterer can do:

Holiday Parties
SuperBowl Parties
Family Reunions
Funerals
Baby or Bridal Showers
Company Picnics
Company Parties
Church Events
Family Meals
Administrative Meetings
Bachelor or Bachelorette Parties
Breakfast
Brunch
Lunch
Dinner
Brinner
Appetizers
Dessert Bar
Birthday Parties

Phew! And that’s not even the full list! Anything you are doing could very easily, and sometimes more cost-effectively, be handled by a caterer rather than doing it yourself.

Sometimes hosting a party is a lot like Pinterest. That lovely wreath that you could buy in the store and might cost you $20? Oh hey! Let’s make it ourselves and it ends up costing you $80.

The same can be said for food items. While you think that it is simple to build a menu, buy the ingredients, make the food, what we sometimes forget to factor in is our TIME. Our time is our most valuable resource. Is preparing the dishes for whatever event is going on the best way to utilize your time?

If the answer is no, that is when you should call a caterer.
