Party Catering in Your Home

Party Catering Survey

OPTION ONE
Imagine yourself standing in your house holding a glass of bubbly, greeting your family and friends. Point them in the direction of the drink and the food.

“Help yourselves!”

Now enjoy your party in the company of friends and family. Enjoy a choice of freshly prepared homemade food and a slice of apple pie.

Say goodbye to a happy group of friends and family…. and accept their compliments as they leave.

And remember we bring the plates and the cutlery and the napkins and the buffet dishes. We even collect everything and take everything away and do the washing up!

OPTION TWO
Rush around preparing food all day, get sisters and aunties to butter bread and make a choice of cheese or hang sangwiches. Try to fit all the sausages in the oven at the same time as the reformed chicken nuggets and spring rolls.

Get the first lot of washing up in the machine and tackle the next lot in the sink. Get suds on the new outfit and chip your nail varnish.

Get changed….again. Touch up nail varnish. Remember to check the oven and find the spring rolls burnt at the edges.

Answer the door and rush back to the oven. Retrieve the chicken thingies and put the smoking trays into the sink. Run the cold tap over your burning fingers.

Smile/grimace through the pain and offer your guests the cheese and hang sangwiches.

Enjoy your party.
