Times are changing and more people are looking at the option of scaling back the traditional reception and considering engaging a caterer for a more elegant cocktail party instead.
There are lots of really great benefits to planning your wedding cocktail event in this manner:
Mingling with guests
For this type of event the guests, including the bride and groom are circulating, so in fact it is more sociable for all. Even though waitering staff are bringing you the next delectable delights, guests are going to the bar for a drink, grabbing hors d’oevres and socialising along the way.
Have you ever wanted to plan a great cocktail party but never had the time? Well life moves so fast these days but sometimes we do have to stop and “smell the roses” or just make the time to do something we have always wanted to do. So go for it!!
If you are planning a themed event make sure you are not racing out to the shops a few hours before for your party supplies and make sure you choose your decorations wisely. Outdoor decorations can be fantastic or a flop; it all depends on how you use them. String lights and fairy lights that are battery operated work well as you don’t have to worry about finding a place to plug them in.
In restaurants, catering kitchens and even home kitchens the type of ingredients used in everyday cooking is constantly changing and this is transforming the world of food and catering.
Also changing is where we eat our food – gone are the days of sitting down and eating a hearty meal with the whole family. The world is moving so fast nowadays that it is preferable to eat a burger while sitting in a bar and partaking of a glass of wine or other beverage to compliment the meal. In Australia, the amalgamation of Asian, Italian, Mexican as well as South American is a constant.
The Aussie kitchen is on an exploratory journey of infusing a variety of gourmet flavours to tantalise the taste buds. Reality food shows have added to this as the home cook strives to keep up the latest trends.
