Organizing Catering for a Childs Birthday Parties
It's Summer's birthday next month and she hasn't stopped going on about it, to say she is excited is an understatement - the past few months she has been going to lots of her nursery friends parties and cousins birthdays. Being she was born in the summer, it makes her one of the youngest in her class, thus, one of the last to celebrate her birthday.
She would love a party with all her friends coming - she wants it at home ("a princess BBQ party"), but due to all the building work with our house going on at the moment it is not really a good idea, thus, I am looking to hire the local village hall and a child's entertainer where all her friends and family can come and have fun!
With doing her party this way, it does mean I have to arrange and sort out the catering and party bags.
So what are my options?
I can spend all day in the kitchen making all the food for 30+ kids, or I can look at paying a catering company to do it for us. But, I would prefer to avoid spending all day in the kitchen so I can spend the day with Summer playing with her new toys, etc.; I'm considering the catering option, as it is a fuss-free and easier option.
I normally enjoy cooking and putting food together for guests, but when it is my little girls birthday, I want to be able to give her my full attention and not being stuck making sandwiches and cakes.
I can order per head, sit back and not worry about it - they will deliver it to the location. Easy Peasy!
Her birthday is well into school holidays so I need to pull my finger out and organize it before they break up from school!
Have you ordered catering before for a child's birthday?
