There’s nothing nicer than being able to have a family gathering for the holidays and have that event catered. Time is precious and you want to be able to spend the bulk of your time with the people that you have invited. Whether your family gathering is fancy, formal – large or small, you can benefit from having your event catered.
I had never considered catering for a family event. I thought it would be too impersonal and too expensive. Boy was I wrong! I hired my first caterer for an extended family dinner of 17. What a relief it was to be able to go through the menu in advance, select items that I knew my family would want (grilled chicken and steak) as well as sides, rolls, salad and desserts. I didn’t have to reconfirm over and over that the food would be there on time. The caterer worked with me to set up all the appropriate items well in advance so that there was no hassle in picking up or serving my guests.
For once, I was able to get out of the kitchen and enjoy the evening with the family. Holiday catering for family events has now become a common event. I can focus on my family, décor, and having a wonderful time. I’m able to take all worry from my mind because I know that I have a caterer I can rely on.
For holiday catering, make sure that you book in plenty of time before your event. At Handheld Catering, we fill up with events quickly and are not always able to accommodate you at the last minute. If you run into trouble finding an available day, look for a Saturday afternoon instead of a Saturday night or consider being flexible with your date and having an event on a Thursday instead. The holidays can be one of the most hectic times of the year. But they can also be the most special and rewarding for family time. Make the most of that time by using a caterer for all your event or family gathering needs. You’ll be glad to you did.
