4 Tips For A Successful Catered Event

If you are in charge of planning a corporate catered event for your company, there are a few things that you need to do to make sure that your catered event goes well.

Have an Accurate Head Count

You need to make sure that you have an accurate head count. Since it is a business event, you should have a better idea of how many people are going to come to your event. You should know how many employees from your own company will be at the event. However, make sure that you always leave yourself a little wiggle room. It is always better to overestimate your head count a little bit than underestimate your head count. Overestimating your headcount will ensure that you don't run out of food.

Know Your Budget

With a corporate event, you should have a very defined budget. Your job is to know how to divide your budget. Figure out how much money you need to spend on the venue, decorations, and sound equipment and then figure out how much money you have left over for your food budget. Try to find a catering company that will fit with your food budget. You want to make sure that you can afford the catering bill, including drinks and beverages. You may want to work with an event planner to make sure that you account for all potential expenses in your budget.

Set A Theme

You are going to want to set a theme for your corporate event that brings together the event and makes everything feel cohesive. You don't have to go with a really elaborate them, such as a night under the sea. Instead, you can go with a basic theme that unifies everything together, such as silver colors or blue colors. You are going to want to set a theme that will bring everything together.

Make A Schedule

Finally, you are going to want to set a schedule for your event. Setting a schedule for your event will ensure that the event flows smoothly. Setting a schedule will also help your DJ know what to play and your catering company to know when to serve what food.

If you are in charge of a corporate catered event, make sure that you know what your budget is. Set a theme for your event that will bring together the music, decorations and food. Come up with a schedule to ensure that the event flows smoothly.
