Tips from the professionals: How to host a special event

Everyone loves to enjoy the company of friends and relatives especially at the time of celebrations, however for a host, there are usually many things that can keep you busy – from food servicing, sitting arrangements, decorations, and a whole lot more. 

All the above have equal importance to making an event successful; however, food has its own very special place, regardless of the type of event, be it a wedding, seminar, business event or birthday party. 

So if you are planning an event, remember the food is of vital importance. It’s not easy to play “host” and still have to prepare, present and serve the food. 

Luckily for those who are planning a party, there are companies that do the food prep and serving for you, leaving you to spend time with guests.

It is important to note that success of any event is in the attention to detail. This is where the experts come in. 

Blue Strawberry Caterers, have provided catering services in Durban at both corporate events and private functions for more than twenty years and they list some benefits associated with hiring professionals, like them, for your function! 

  • Time saver: It takes a lot of time to plan food arrangements. Along with the menu selection, preparation and presentation of selected food items, the quality of the food. Rather bring in the professionals who have experience in this area.


  • Worthy return on your investment: Contrary to what people think, hiring experienced caterers actually reduces the expenses of food presentation. They know what type and amount of ingredients are needed to serve all your guests, so there is less wastage. Moreover, you don’t have to go and shop for the ingredients. It’s all taken care of. 


  • Crockery and kitchenware availability: It is much easier when someone else has all the utensils for preparing, presenting, and serving food. This is also another saving.

  • No need to worry: Professional catering services relieve you from the worries of after party arrangements. Cleaning up after a party is a challenging task as it involves lots of things such as returning tables and chairs to rental services, cleaning of used utensils, and managing left-over food.
