While most of the events take a lot of time to plan and execute, there are certain instances in which you’ll have to organise in the last minute. Planning an event at the last minute can not only be stressful but also give you access to a limited number of options. However, just because you are late planning, it doesn’t mean you still can’t have a memorable event.

If you have to put together a last minute event, you have to prioritise certain elements, especially food. A party is all about food and fun! Hiring catering Sydney service is the key to address food and beverage-related challenges.

Here are a few tips to make party planning a breeze at the last minute

Consider your guest’s preference

Maybe your guests are full of carnivores that go gaga over BBQ buffet or maybe go crazy on sandwich and pizza. However, choose food that is not only delicious but also blends well with the theme of your party. Even though you are short on time, it takes only a couple of hours to pull together an online survey and gather the group for any dietary restrictions. You don’t want any of your guests to feel left out. You can even consider gourmet buffet catering Sydney and sandwich catering Sydney if you are expecting a large crowd.

Be flexible with the date

When are you left with no time, have a few backup dates in mind before hiring caterers and choosing a menu. Do not be stubborn on the fixed date to avoid last-minute chaos. If your first choice is booked, go with other dates. Keep in mind that night and weekday slots are often the lasts to fill, and you can save money as well.

Hire catering Sydney services

If you are at the last minute, a full-service caterer is the most stress-free way to go. Yes, a catering service can help you plan the menu, staff the event, set up, serve the food and beverage, and finally clean up. You can enjoy the party while the food is prepared and served by the professionals.

Make the menu flexible

Consider food stations as it allows your guest to mingle and chat with each other, which is always a good thing at an event. You’ll have to be prepared for some limitations in terms of food preparation and menu availability as you approach them at the last minute. So, be flexible with the menu and choose one that the caterers offer and keep it simple yet delicious.
