What makes an event stand out? Is it the grandeur of the venue? The décor? Or is it the food? Back in the day remember how we used to have simple food at our birthday parties like chips, sandwiches, idlis and cake? Nowadays this has become takeaway food boxes for our help!
Food & beverage at events has become indispensable in today’s day thanks to social media, awareness and TV shows. Right from cuisine selection, cocktail bars to food presentation, people are always looking for new ideas to make the food stand out at their event.
So whether it’s got to do with cooking, baking or martini shaking, here are a few funky food concepts and creative ideas we would like to share with you.
Instead of having a regular buffet setup you could choose between having live counters and flying buffets according to the type of your event. Interactive sous chefs are also becoming increasingly popular, so keeping your guest list in mind you could decide on whether you want to have different cuisine sous chefs.
Pop up bars and food carts are another way to go if you are having a brunch or a sundowner, rather than having a regular buffet. This set up will allow your guests to mingle whilst they eat.
You could also have unique and personalised menus for each guest if you are having a grand sit down dinner party or themed food tags if you want a buffet setup. Another fun thing to do would be to dress up the staff in themed outfits in order to keep the flow of the theme going.
Incase you have decided not to have a party and want to take your friends out of town instead, of course none of the above pointers are relevant for you. Don’t worry we have a solution for that too! You could have personalised food travel kits and mini bar kits for the journey to make it more memorable.
Think outside the box and break the monotony of choosing regular menus offered by most bars and restaurants, and don’t be afraid to explore newer menu options to make the food stand out at your event and be the one to remember.
So now that we have given you a few ideas on deciding the food and beverage menu for your event, feel free to mix and match and put in your own ideas according to your guest preferences and occasion. Every event is different and being the host, you’ve go to do what it takes to bring the party to life!
