Catering services make entertaining at home much easier on you as the hostess. They take away much of the nitty-gritty work that goes into planning and mounting an event, even if that gathering takes place in your own home. Often, the stress of menu planning, table design and setting, food preparation and on-the-day service can take its toll on even the most calm and prepared hostess. Here are a few reasons why hiring a catering service (like ours here at 25 Mushrooms) will benefit you.
1. You delegate menu planning to the professionals.
Catering companies like ours have years of experience in creating dishes from different cuisines. At the same time, we are trained to create entire repertoires for events and gatherings. Having a catering business take charge of the menu planning aspect of your event will help alleviate a lot of pressure from you. You can be assured that you will serve your guests a meal that compliments the graciousness of your event and the warmth of your home.
2. Your design concepts are mounted for you.
It is a fun practice to search for visual pegs for your event. (Who doesn’t love scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest for these?) But sourcing the materials for your tablescapes, the flowers, the place settings — these can be daunting. Catering companies like 25 Mushrooms are equipped with the knowledge not only for food prep, but also event styling. By communicating your desired design to the catering company, you can rest assured that the concept will be executed to the detail, so that all you need concern yourself with are your meaningful conversations with your guests.
3. There is less stress for you, the hostess.
The signature quality of a good hostess is that she has a place for everything during her gathering and knows how to delegate the tasks that would be better performed by others. You don’t need to spend hours preparing centerpieces, folding napkins and making sure there is enough beef broth or olive oil for the five different dishes you’ll be serving. A reliable catering company will take charge of all of these for you, so that you can focus on what you do best: Being a gracious hostess to your dinner guests.
A great event is about the details as much as it is about the well-being and satisfaction of your guests. When you elect to have your event catered, you are telling your guests that you have their best interest in mind, and that you want to assure them of a good meal, great conversation and memorable moments.
These are just some of the benefits of having a catering company take charge of your next home gathering or event. Inquire today about our Catering Packages here at 25 Mushrooms.
