Let’s Get Dressed Up! A Formal Dinner Party With Catering

When it comes to planning and hosting a dinner party, deciding where the food will come from can be the most stressful part of the process. While many people like to cook at home, not everyone has the time or patience to prepare an entire meal. If you’re in the mood to get dressed up and treat your guests to something special, look no further than dinner party catering services from Inspired Occasions! We are happy to bring elegant food and drinks straight to your front door without all the work or cleanup!

Why Have a Dinner Party Instead of a Cocktail Party

Dinner party catering is the most efficient way to reduce the stress of a formal party.

While cocktail parties are great, they can get out of hand. People arrive drunk, food and wine are always left behind, and the cleanup takes forever. On top of that, people invariably forget to drink from their cups, so there’s a mess to clean up before getting dressed again for tomorrow. Hosting a formal dinner party is an excuse to get dressed up, share wonderful food and drinks with good company, and leave feeling satisfied that our family doesn’t have to do the dishes tonight.

Considerations for a Formal Dinner Party

Munchies, appetizers, and small plates are the perfect starters for a formal dinner party. Baking desserts is a wonderful option for guests who are not gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, or any of the other common food restrictions these days. Start by considering your dinner party guests and what they like to eat. Typically, people prefer foods that are not spicy, are familiar to them, and will fit nicely in their stomachs. That said, every dinner party has different needs. For example, you may be catering for a group of vegetarians, or there might be a guest with celiac disease. Again this is all about being mindful of your dinner party guests’ preferences and being open-minded when choosing what you offer the menu. To make it even more festive, hire Inspired Occasions to bring your favorite dishes from the kitchen. We have more than ten years experience in catering and event management.

Décor, Ambiance, Music, and Atmosphere

With so many different options, it can be hard to figure out where to start. What do you want the space to feel like? Fanciful, rustic, chic? The first step is picking a style. Take a quick look around your home and pick out some of your favorite decorative accents for help deciding which direction to go in. Once you’ve narrowed down what kind of vibe you’re going for, take a close look at what colors would work best with that feeling. You don’t have to paint everything or spend a lot of money. Simple changes, such as adding new artwork or pillows, will make all the difference!

Planning is Key to Success + Less Anxiety = Comfort

Dinner party catering is the most efficient and guaranteed way to reduce the stress of having a formal dinner party. But before you call up your caterer, plan to make it a night to remember. Don’t forget to dress up in that special occasion outfit. Dress the table with matching place settings and silverware, put out some fresh flowers or candles on each table setting, even down to the runner on the table (definitely not optional). It’ll be like your first date all over again when you set the mood with this high-class atmosphere.

Catering Takes the Stress Out of Hosting a Formal Dinner Party

If you do not want to lift a finger at your dinner party, contact a company that provides dinner party catering services. You can select the foods and services you want, and they will handle everything else. Your guests will be catered to, and you will not have to be on your toes during the formal dinner party. Your guests will have an enjoyable experience, as will you.

Why Hire Professional Dinner Party Caterers?

When you opt for professional catering services, the experts will take the time to discuss your needs. This helps them understand the types of foods you want to serve your guests. There are many reasons to hire caterers for your event, such as:

  • There are some guests with special dietary requirements, and if you have to manage all these specific things yourself, the entire process can become quite stressful. On the other hand, professional dinner party catering is the way to go if you want the best foods with the least amount of trouble.
  • With someone else handling the food aspect of your social gathering, as the host, you too get to enjoy the company and the food.
  • You don’t have to worry about shopping for all the ingredients or be in the kitchen for days preparing for the occasion.
  • Serving and the subsequent cleaning are also time-consuming and tedious tasks that you can easily avoid by opting for dinner party catering.
