Why Cater for the Big Game? Sports Party Catering is the Way to Go

Are you a sports fan in Tinley Park, Orland Park, New Lenox, Frankfort, Mokena, Lockport, Homer Glen, Oak Forest, Manhattan, or Monee looking for a caterer for your football party? Salinas Catering can provide you with game day favorites delivered right to your house in any of these areas so that you won’t have to miss one minute of the game.

 

Is it your turn to host a sports party for the big game? Impress your friends by having the party catered and make this event enjoyable for yourself. There are numerous reasons why catering is the only way to go. Learn more from the article below:

 

Choosing to have your football party catered will allow you to enjoy the game as much as all of your guests. You won’t have to worry about cooking or setting out the food during halftime. You can choose a time to have your food delivered to your house and set up by your caterer at a time that is convenient for you and your guests. They will also bring disposable plates and utensils which will make for easy clean up.

 

Another advantage of going with a local caterer for your sports party is that you can order all of your guests’ game day favorites. Place a catering order for appetizers, wings, pizzas, and sandwiches. Salina’s full extensive menu can satisfy all of your guests’ cravings for game day food.

 

Catering a sports party also prevents you from having to ask your guests to bring a dish to share and from throwing a pot luck party. Let your guests enjoy themselves and not have to worry about bringing a food item over to your home for the party. Have your caterer take care of all of the food. Set up a few simple help yourself beverage stations so that you won’t have to miss any of the game waiting on your guests. 
3 Ingredients to a Perfect Holiday Party

 

What are the three key ingredients to a perfect holiday party? Whether you are hosting a party in Tinley Park, Orland Park, New Lenox, Frankfort, Mokena, Lockport, Homer Glen, Oak Forest, Manhattan, or Monee you can turn to Salinas Catering for all of your holiday party needs.

 

3 Ingredients for a Perfect Holiday Party:

 

A happy and stress-free host

 

The number one way to ensure that your holiday party is successful is to spend time with your guests instead of in the kitchen. The easiest way to achieve this is by letting a caterer do all of the hard work. By choosing Salinas Catering to handle your holiday party, you can enjoy your guests. Let your caterer come in and set up your food and supply all of the necessary serve ware for easy clean up. Spend less time in the kitchen and more time relaxing.

 

Plenty of food and several food options

 

Provide your guests with plenty of food and make sure there are several food options available that will appeal to children and guests with dietary restrictions. Select finger foods for kids and a vegetarian and gluten free dish for guests with dietary restrictions. This is especially important if you are hosting a larger party and are not aware of any dietary restrictions your guests may have. It is always better to offer these special dishes than to have guests unable to eat your holiday spread.

 

Room to dine comfortably

 

There is nothing wrong with renting an eight foot table and chairs and placing it in your living room so that you can provide a comfortable dining area for all of your guests. If you are having a larger holiday party at your home and need some extra space, rent a table and chairs and fit it into any room of your house that can accommodate your guests.

Orland Park Catering Tips on Planning Outdoor Parties

Orland Park Catering Tips on Planning Outdoor Parties

 

Planning on outdoor party? Need some helpful advice and tips on securing rentals and ordering food? Your Orland Park catering company is ready and waiting to help you plan your special events. Follow these tips on planning a successful outdoor party to make sure your guests have a memorable time for all the right reasons.

 

Tip #1 Having too much of something is always better than not having enough.

 

The age old adage is true. It is always better to have too much food than not enough. This doesn’t mean that you have to order enough food to feed a dozen extra guests but you should take some time in making your menu selections and ask your Orland Park catering company for help with deciding portions. Keep in mind that the event’s time of day and the type of guests you are hosting should factor into your menu portioning. Guests will tend to eat more at a party hosted during the dinner hours. Kids will eat less than adults. Your caterer will help ensure that you don’t run out of food for your hungry guests.

 

Tip #2 When it rains, it pours.

 

Planning a backyard party or outdoor graduation ceremony? If you are hosting a party with a large number of guests that can not comfortably all be seated inside of your house you will need to secure party rentals providing them a comfortable seating area outdoors under the protection of a tent. Talk to your Orland Park catering company directly to see what size tent you will need to accommodate your guests.

 

You will also need to consider renting tables and chairs for your guests. If you will be setting up your food outdoors rent extra tables for your serving stations. Always be prepared for a few extra guests and some rain and your guests will enjoy your party regardless of the weather.

 

Tip #3 Be prepared for hot or cold temperatures.

 

Living in the Chicagoland areas leaves you vulnerable to unseasonable temperatures. While it is easy for your guests to bundle up and add on extra layers, you will need to make plans for your food to make sure that it stays the correct temperature. Ask your Orland Park catering company how you can make sure your food stays warm or cold at an outdoor party.

3 Ways Your New Lenox Catering Company Can Save the Day

3 Ways Your New Lenox Catering Company Can Save the Day

 

Major Save #1 It’s the week of your backyard party and you see nothing but rain in the forecast.

 

Weather not cooperating with your backyard party plans?

 

By opting to go with a New Lenox catering company that also provides party rentals such as: tents, tables, chairs, and porta potties, you can rest assured that your caterer will make sure you are ready for your event rain or shine. Choose a local caterer that is capable of supplying you with all of your backyard party rentals in addition to your food. When there is inclement weather in your forecast, contact your caterer to find out about what tents they have available at the last minute for your backyard party.

 

Major Save #2 You have 50 guests attending your child’s graduation party but you only ordered enough food for 25 people. Last minute add-ons can throw off your menu planning.

 

How do you know you have ordered enough food? Has your guest list fluctuated since you originally placed your order?

 

Don’t be afraid to ask your New Lenox Catering Company for advice on how much food you should order. Always discuss the number of guests you are having attend your party when you are speaking with your caterer. They will let you know right away if they feel you haven’t ordered enough food for your event. Experienced caterers can also help with your menu planning so you can be confident you have made selections that will appeal to all of your guests.

 

Major Save #3 The temperature isn’t cooperating with your plans for an outdoor party.

 

Any New Lenox Catering business should know that it is possible to experience unseasonably cold or extremely hot Chicago weather during the summer months. Whether you are concerned with keeping your cold foods at a cool temperature on a sweltering hot summer day, or if unseasonably cool weather sets in on the day of your outdoor party, your caterer should have the equipment you need to keep your food safe for serving. From lidded chaffing dishes fueled by sternos to cold plates on ice; your caterer can provide solutions to keep your foods at the proper temperature no matter what weather the WindyCity dishes out!
