Many elegant restaurants will cater the party of your design at the location of your choice. The venue may be the restaurant, your home, or special place. Whether your next event is a holiday party, anniversary celebration, Bar Mitzvah, or special occasion, you can find that special restaurant to host your event.

Catering services often include organizing an entire event; from selecting the table cloth and flowers through to music selection and cuisine choices. The caterer may also be involved in selecting the "theme" of your event. An experienced catering company will present their client with innovative ideas in choice of

  • Venue (restaurant, private home, garden)

  • Food selection and presentation (organic food options, kosher food, etc.)

  • Flowers and decoration

  • Linens, Dishes, Glasses, and even cutlery

  • Photographers (Select a "formal" or "natural setting" for your photographs.)

  • Entertainment (Ensure the music is not so loud that your guests experience a hearing loss.)

  • Invitations

  • Introductions to their Staff

  • Additional items that you deem important to the success of your catered affair

Select your venue and book your event. Depending on the venue, you may need to reserve your location one year in advance. For smaller events, you can probably book a restaurant just a few months in advance. Once you have selected the venue for your event, find out if the location selected requires an in-house caterer or if you can select your own caterer. If you have the choice, decide on the caterer for your affair and reserve far in advance.

If dietary requirements are in play, be sure your caterer can cater a party that accommodates your guests. For example, if you are organic and want to cater an organic meal for your party, be sure your caterer understands this "healthy choice" requirement. Plan a tasting with your caterer to be sure the food meets your requirements.

Your caterer can give you ideas on the types of food appropriate for formal dinner parties to kitchen suppers.If you know your guests require organic or local food options, plan a menu around "healthy food options".Select a catering service you trust to cater your event successfully. Your caterer is also your event planner and may be involved in venue, entertainment, cuisine, color scheme, and menu - from appetizer through dessert and types of coffee served.

Once you've decided on who will cater your event and have reserved the date with the catering company, you should be able to set aside any concerns regarding your special occasion and know that your caterer will attend to every detail.

Caterers may have their own facilities from which to select. They can successfully plan and cater your special occasion from beginning to end. Your caterer should be available to address questions about small and large details, including:

Catering Tips

    Do you want an "all inclusive caterer" that supplies the venue, cuisine, valet service, flowers, entertainment, and anything else necessary to make your event successful?

    Do you want to select your venue and bring in a caterer to coordinate details from tablecloth selection to the final note of music?

    Do you want a caterer that can work on a pre-defined budget?

    Does your caterer work on a price-per-guest schedule or do they itemize some components of your event such as entertainment, flowers, valet service in addition to the price-per-guest cost?

Before signing a contract with your caterer and for "peace of mind" check the following,

  • Caterer is licensed and insured

  • Caterer's Better Business Bureau rating

  • Stop by an event in-progress by the company chosen to cater your event.

  • Review food options


    • Is food prepared on-site? If food is not prepared at the selected venue, how long does the food have to travel?


    • Ask about leftover food policy.


  • Review the selected venue and walk the event site from beginning of end.

  • How are gratuities decided?

  • What is the cancellation policy?

Whether planning an intimate dinner for two or a fundraising event for hundreds, be sure that you've selected a caterer that can tailor your event to meet your individual taste and budget and attend to all the details necessary for a successful wedding, business meeting, special anniversary, or holiday celebration.
