Working with Catering Services to Bring Your Ideas to Life

Posted on Jul 20, 2019 by Fe Mendoza

So you have this picture on your mind of the kind of event you want. It was perfect. The food was delicious and the service was great. Best of all, all your guests enjoyed the event and they can’t stop praising you for a job well done.

Then you come back to reality then a terrifying truth dawned on you: you don’t know how to turn your dream event into reality. The most natural solution came to mind. You need to hire a caterer. But now the question is, how are you going to relay to the caterers your vision in such a way that they will be able to make it real?

Below are some tips on working with catering services to bring your ideas to life.

Be clear about what you want

You must know what you want. You must be 100% sure of what you want. How can you turn your idea into reality if you don’t have a clear idea in the first place? Visualise what you want. Imagine all the details then try to write them down so you won’t have to rely on your memory when you talk to the caterer.

Look for visual representations of your ideas

They say that a picture speaks a thousand words. One of the best things you can do to make sure that the caterer will be able to understand your idea is to find a visual representation of what is on your mind.

If you want to have a particular table setting, for example, then look for photos of it on the Web. If you want the food to be presented in a certain way then you can also find photos that would represent your idea online.

Be realistic

Caterers will be more than happy to bring your idea to life. But they can only do so much. So keep your ideas simple and make sure they are realistic.
