Theme and Style of the Event
It’s important for the catering to match the overall vibe of your event. For example, BBQ catering will feel out of place at an event with a tea party theme. Such a contrast will detract from the overall theme and ruin the atmosphere you want to create.
To help find a suitable option for your event catering, consider whether your New Forest event is relaxed or formal and if the chosen theme evokes certain types or styles of food. As an example, paella catering is ideal for a Mediterranean-inspired event. We provide the perfect option for everything from party catering to corporate catering.
The time of year you hold your event can influence food choices. Our catering company notes that lighter food options are often preferred in hot weather when providing buffets and sit-down wedding catering. However, BBQs and hog roasts are also hugely popular for outdoor summer events.
Guests and Seating
How many people will be at your event in the New Forest or surrounding areas? If you have a large number of guests, you may benefit from food which is quick and easy to serve. This includes buffet and paella menus. BBQ catering can also accommodate a large number of people without guests having to wait around to be served.
It is also important to consider your seating arrangements when looking into event catering. If you are going to have dining tables and enough chairs for every guest, you can opt for sit-down food from our corporate catering package, which requires a knife and fork. This is also a popular option for wedding catering. However, if any guests will have to stand while eating, or sit on a chair without a table, our catering company recommends opting for a party catering package with finger food or something like a hog roast.
