While planning the menu go through the choices offered and choose those that will be enjoyed by a majority of the guests. Here are some tips that would help you choose the perfect foods.
1.These days theme parties are in vogue so the choice should suit the theme.
2.Then again you need to consider the type of party or rather the age of most of the guests. For example if it is a child’s birthday party, naturally most guests will be little children. So the food should also be something that they will enjoy. Whereas, if the party is for adults, the food could be more spicy and piquant – something that they will enjoy.
3.Your budget plays a major role. It can be very tempting to get carried away with the food expenses but then it is most essential that you consider your budget. This way you too enjoy the party as much as your guests. There need not to too much of a variety for then people will find it difficult which foods they should have.
4.The variety may be small but there should be enough of whatever you are offering. There can be nothing worse that can happen at a party than when the food gets finished before time. If there is a little leftover, it will not go waste. But you should not, at any stage, run out of food.
5.It would really be nice if you could consider special needs. There could be some among your guests who have a condition that does not allow them to eat any and every food. So if you have some diet related items then these people will be able to enjoy the party as much as the others. For after all food is an integral part of any party.
6.Finally it will do you good to remember that presentation is important. If there are items like kababs or sandwiches, their shape should be as perfect as possible. They should be arranged on attractive platters and garnished well. When it comes to choosing the garnishes make sure their colours complement the food.
7.Also make sure there are enough napkins, paper plates, cups etc. It is quite common for people wanting to change their plates for a new item.
I can assure you if you follow these few tips it will not only be easier for you to plan your party and the food but it will also ensure that your guests will have an enjoyable and memorable experience. Your party will certainly be a topic for discussion and all for the right reasons too.
