Melbourne Dj Hire have worked at a lot of self catered events in the last few months. In this blog post, we thought we would share with you all the different ways you can be creative with your catering and also save money as well.
The very cheap and easy option is by heading down to your local Costco store and purchasing their catering packs. There are sushi platters, chicken wing platters and also sandwich platters and even platters of desserts. They are filling, fresh and a very easy party food option. If you are catering a dinner party, Costco also has some pre marinaded meats. Meats like ribs, korean beef, and Portuguese chicken, these trays are perfect for a backyard barbecue or even cooked up as a main for a share table.
Melbourne Dj Hire worked at a house party Sunday afternoon where the hosts and their family made some of the food. Then they also hired external caterers to bring in some salads and main dishes and also some finger food. The catering company also provided a few roaming waitresses to serve finger food, tidy up the kitchen and also clear up some plates and glasses. There was also a temporary bar set up where there was a bar staff standing and ready to pour drinks for guests.
One option that is the most cost effective is to provide all the food yourself and then hire a couple of independent catering staff to help you with your event. Hiring extra help to give you a hand with heating up and plating the food for you will save you so much time and let you enjoy your party. Melbourne DJ hire have seen this done a lot. One or two staff members come to the house and help with cooking and serving and then also tidying up the kitchen when the food is finished.
