It can be a special tray with different types of cheese, or a tray of gourmet sandwiches.
The important thing is that it is presented in a way that is both artisan and delectable.
This gives your event a touch of sophistication.
The Classic Catered Buffet
You can never go wrong with a buffet table at your next event. Buffets come in so many different styles and looks and you can add any and all food menus to them which is why they are classic.
Having an event catered is all ways a great idea just make sure you choose a company that has a reputation for good flavors and great presentation.
Beverage catering is the servicing of drinks such as beer, wine, soda, spirits and coffee during events. Most times beverage catering involves bartending and the setup of the bar. Along with this the beverage catering company will do the purchasing of the beverage for the client and will have set packages.
Important note, in the state of Colorado all bartenders must be tip certified and a responsible vendor license. In fact, here are some things you should know about the science behind beverage catering:
What are the 5 Core Spirits?
The five core spirits are the basic liquors of a bartender. These are vodka, gin, whiskey, rum, and tequila.
- Vodka – this Russian spirit can be taken on the rocks but is frequently used in different kinds of cocktails like martinis and cosmopolitans. You can also serve this as a cold shot too.
- Gin – Gin is liquor which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries. Gin is one of the broadest categories of spirits, all of various origins, styles, and flavour profiles that revolve around juniper as a common ingredient.
- Whiskey – a spirit distilled from malted grain, especially barley or rye.
- Rum – a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane byproducts, such as molasses or honeys, or directly from sugarcane juice, by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels.
- Tequila – is a regional distilled beverage and type of alcoholic drink made from the blue agave plant.
How do You know how much alcohol to buy for an event?
There are various tools online that will tell you how much alcohol you have to bring to your event. But generally, it will depend on the following factors:
- Number of guests
- Duration of event
- Is the bar open?
- When the bar will open
- When the bar will close
Normally your guest will have 2 drinks during the first hour and an additional drink for every additional hour they attend your event.
In general you should buy more vodka than any other drinks, unless you know what your guest likes or are doing a themed event that called for a certain type of drinks.
How many bartenders should I have?
The ideal scenario is that you have 1 bartender for every 50 to 75 guests. But generally, the advice is that you will need a second bartender if you have about 75 to 150 guests for a basic but limited bar.
If, however, you have a full bar with different mixed drinks, you should definitely try to follow the 1:50 ratio.
How do I set up the bar area?
Choose an area where there is a good flow of people pas the cocktail bar and into the standing or seating areas
- Spot for Ice and buckets in middle or in convenient place
- Spirits go to the right
- Left side have your mixers
- Have your wines on ice in a bucket
- Beer in a cooler chilling (at least one hour before) or pre chilled
- Backup drinks and cups on back tables

The right event staff can make or break your event. Even if they are not exactly your employees, they will be flying your banner and anything they do will reflect on you.
It doesn’t matter if they are not really your “people” those who will attend your event will assume that they are and you can’t go around telling everybody that it is not really your fault if they suck.
So, in your next event, make sure that you take precautions before hiring some event staff, here are some tips.
Determine the scope of your event
Before you go out looking for event staff agencies, you should determine the size, length and audience of your event. There are event staff agencies that excel in bigger events while there are others that thrive on smaller, more intimate events.
You don’t want to be hiring event staff for your big event if they do not have the experience for it.
Look for reputable agencies
Once you determined the scope of your event, research different agencies that offer event staffing. Look for those that have strong recommendations or are frequently hired by other event organizers. Those are signs that they provide a good service.
Make a short list of all these agencies so that it will be easier to narrow down on the right one later.
Look for event staffers that have experience in your industry
Like the scope of your event, you should also consider if the event staffs you will be getting has the experience to handle the type of event that you will be organizing.
Do they excel in corporate events? Or do they excel I more intimate settings like weddings?
Consider these so you can shorten your short list even further.
Make a checklist of questions then schedule a series of interviews
Before making contact with any event staff agency, make sure that you have prepared a checklist of questions you want to ask them. This should include questions about them, their staff, and their experience with handling different kinds of event.
Once you have a checklist of questions, you can make contact through a call for a short inquiry on their services. From there, if you are happy with their answers. You can schedule a 2nd meeting where you can interview them further.
After the interviews, you can further cut your list so that you have your top 3 options. You can then schedule a final meeting so you can make your final decision.
Don’t be cheap
The last tip for hiring event staff is to not be cheap. In our quest to save money, we tend to go for cheaper options for things like this. But always get it in your head that if you pay cheap, you will get cheap.
When you pay for a cheap event staff, you will get cheap and unreliable event staff. Your audience will, in turn, will think you are cheap as well for hiring such people.
In the end, you will be known as that cheap events organizer. Don’t be that guy. Pay up or get what you deserve.
Summer is here and the temperature is rising.
Flare up the temperature some more by hosting your own awesome summer party.
If you haven’t hosted any summer party in the past, don’t worry.
Here’s a guide that will make it easier for you to throw a cool summer party not only for friends and family, but a party where strangers will be paying admission to get to.
Hire a catering company to drop off or get a food truck to come.
Number one on the list is food. But if you are going to host a large crowd, it might be better off if you would just hire a professional catering company.
Preparing the food yourself will just eat up all your time that is better used in organizing the event itself. Besides, you think you are saving money by cooking the food by yourself, but for large groups, you might be surprised that the cost of hiring caterers is not that far off from the cost of doing it yourself.
Another option, aside from hiring a catering company, is to get a food truck to come to your event. It will be a cool factor thrown into your summer party.
Anticipation is everything. Build an event website to get registration and have a designer create a flyer.
All your efforts will be for naught if you are not able to get people to go to your event. The best way to do that is to market your party extensively.
One way to effectively do it is to build an event website to get registration. The site will also include all the details of your summer party including the date, location, itinerary, and line up of guests and performers.
Use the website as the center of your marketing campaigns. Extensively promote it on social media, go as far as boost your posts through paid ads.
You can also delve into traditional marketing. Have a designer create a cool flyer that also indicates your website. Pass it around town.
Rent an open-air photo booth
I always say that the photo booth is the ultimate rental for any event, summer parties are not an exception.
And you know what’s better than a photo booth? And open-air photobooth. Yup no walls. A photobooth where everyone sees how everyone poses.
It is a fun way to get everybody involved in the event. It’s a souvenir for your guests too.
Hire local DJ with sound system
There will be lull moments during your summer party. A DJ can fill those silent moments with groovy music.
Your DJ can also be one of the performers. Ask your DJ to play a killer set for you.
And once all the performers are done, your DJ can take control and get everyone to dance through the summer heat.
Rent Tables and chairs with table linen
Your party is about summer so it is important that your tables, chairs and other decors reflect that.
Make sure that the linen used on the tables matches the color and theme of your event.
If not, your guests will surely notice that the décor is just an afterthought.
Get a bartender to serve mixed drinks and signature cocktails
What kind of summer party doesn’t have alcohol? Make sure that you rent a bar or have a beverage caterer to take care of the drinks during your summer party.
Coordinate with your beverage caterer about the types of mixed drinks that will be available. You can even concoct your own signature cocktail so that it will be identified to your event.
These are just some simple things you can follow if you want to organize a kickass summer party. It will take some time and effort, but it will be worth it.
