THINKING OF THROWING A PARTY FOR 50 – 1000 PEOPLE? WHERE DO YOU START?

For many of us thinking about throwing a party, details such as arranging the space, preparing the menu, providing the accessories and finding serving staff are always problems. In addition to all the other tasks, you still have to greet and attend to your guests. What can you do?

These tasks are no longer a problem, as there are some catering companies around the area that can help you with all the details. They can even give you advice on how to impress your special guests with your next affair. So, what can the catering company do and what do you have to do?

We used to dread the prospect of throwing a party at our house. We’d become so exhausted just thinking about all the work and details that, in the end, we’d just give up. Then, someone suggested that we use a private catering company and it sounded so easy. Just ring the catering service and they’ll come to your home and advise you on all the details. It sounds so easy, doesn’t it? Just one phone call and we’ll learn all the details. So, we figured, why not give it a try?

The service that I just called advised me that they could cater a party for fifty to 1,000 people and charged about 150-200 baht per guest. The menu would be customized for my particular needs; and, best of all, I wouldn’t have to do anything. I just have to supply the venue. Their staff will arrive, at my home, with food and accessories. All the food items will arrive hot and be kept hot throughout the party. This was all very interesting. However, I don’t have enough tables and chairs, I explained. The company explained that they could provide furniture for only a little extra cost. It was really a relief to learn this.

The company also explained that they could prepare various types of cuisines, such as Chinese food or “a la carte” service. They can even provide flower arrangements, music or karaoke. I never realized that entertaining at home could be so easy. Now, I can entertain at home instead of going out and fighting the traffic to eat out somewhere.

Another problem was that I live quite far out of town, near U-Tapao Airport. Would this be too far away for them to cater? The lady that I was speaking to told me that this is no problem at all, as their company provides in-flight catering for international airlines that use the airport. This was a relief and made me feel more confident that they could successfully cater my affair. The woman explained that they have been providing frozen foods for the airlines for years. They deliver the food directly to the aircraft before its next departure. I think it is a large operation and extremely professional.

I learned a lot about private catering from my phone conversation, that day. I also found out that they can provide catering for company meetings, light meals with tea and coffee and can even prepare meals for monks on festive occasions. This sounded like a complete service to me.

The lady, from the catering company, promised to send me the menu, as well as, all the information I would need to know. The best part is that all the services can be customized to my individual needs. I only have to give them one day’s notice and they will provide everything I need. By the way, she also mentioned that the company is starting a new meal home delivery service next year. I’m really looking forward to that.

Throwing a party at home is no longer a hassle. So, for my next house party, I just have to put on my beautiful clothes, greet all my special guests and let the catering company do the rest.
