Kelly was such a superstar, she helped with everything from carving out a baby carriage out of a watermelon, making watermelon mimosas, cooking up a storm on the bbq and even doing a run to the shops for us and taking pics at the baby shower. Couldn’t have done it without you and by far the best Airtasker we have ever dealt with. Thank you so much! X

Help with baby shower set up and bbq!


We hired Tina and Dee for a baby shower with only 3 days notice. From start to finish they were organised, professional, capable and communicated really well. We felt we were in very capable hands from the get go. They created amazing platters & canapes and adapted with ease to someone else's kitchen. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful they were. Arrived early, stayed late. We were left with a spotless house after a party for over 25 people. Thanks to these lovely ladies we enjoyed a relaxing, stressfree event. We would not hesitate in recommending them and will definitely be using their services in future.

2 x party helpers / wait staff for baby shower


Vee was absolutely fantastic at our event! She made sure all the food was prepared and served perfectly throughout the day as well as continually cleaning up. As hosts we were able to relax and enjoy the party with minimal cleaning afterwards all thanks to Vee 😊

I need baby shower catering


Ah-maz-ing!!! Katherine was such a fun addition to my baby shower. From her first arrival I knew instantly she was perfect. The brief was simple, heat the food and keep it coming. But she went above and beyond, staying back to make and serve coffee. I adored having her involvement, i received so many compliments of her fantastic nature and assistance. Thank you Katherine!! You absolutely helped make my baby shower the fantastic experience it was!

Top Party Catering related questions

It depends on a party caterer’s terms and conditions; some do and some don’t. However, we advise that you be prepared to shell out for an advance deposit as they will need it to procure supplies and consumables for the event such as ingredients, as well as upfront labor fees. It is best to discuss with your Tasker about upfront fees.

Similar to the question above, it depends on a party caterer’s terms and conditions. Some caterers are upfront about non-refundable down payments as they have already spent on ingredients that may be perishable. Not to mention some work may have already been undertaken with regards to your event. It is best to discuss these matters with your Tasker just so everyone’s on the same page.

In cooking, there’s a technique referred to as par cooking. What this is is essentially partially cooking the food so it can be served as fresh as possible to your guests during the event. In any case, we are unable to give you an exact timing as to when your event’s food will arrive, but it’s safe to say that you can expect the food to be fresh. Consult with your tasker to know more about their cooking and catering practices.

It can be said that some people with allergies and diet restrictions are some of the saddest out there as they can’t enjoy food that most people can. Be it a shellfish allergy or lactose intolerance, party caterers are more than up for the challenge to be more inclusive with the menu. Just be upfront with your party caterer about these specifics.

Typically, catering jobs are determined by scale. You tell them how many people you need to feed and they have a good estimate of just how much food to serve. However, you may also overshoot your headcount in case you might need extra servings. You can discuss this in more detail with your Tasker so both parties are aligned on how many extra servings you require.

Airtasker can cater to your party needs from food to event documentation. You can have event planners booked on Airtasker if you want a hassle-free experience staging what happens. You can even outsource a local photographer for those picture-perfect moments you can share and cherish with your family and friends. When the party’s over, you can even have party cleaners set down for you.

What do party catering services include?

Need a caterer for big or small parties? Don’t fret! Booking catering near you for parties is now made much easier with Airtasker! Expect fully loaded catering services across a wide variety and scale of events that meet and exceed expectations from menu conceptualization to afterparty cleanup. Here are just some of what’s included when you book graduation or birthday party catering near you on Airtasker:

Menu building

From restaurant bestsellers to exclusive catering offerings, booking adults or kids party catering on our platform lets you find someone to help you plan and build a menu fit for your event. Be it intimate or grandiose, build a menu that will wow your guests and ensure that they have a good time. After all, the best way to anyone’s heart is through their stomachs.

Signature offerings

Some of you may look for specific party caterers for their specialties, their signature offerings. You may be specific – from a protein to a specific preparation, or even a straight-up dish already – with wanting specific specialties or equivalents and party caterer Taskers should be more than capable of delivering on your needs. Picture-perfect specialties and signature dishes are crafted to impress and Taskers are more than happy to make their mark and make your events more memorable.

Custom offerings

Apart from party food catering staples and signature offerings, some caterers are more than happy to hear from you if you have a specific dish that’s so special, you’d want to put it on the menu for your events. Recreating a family recipe, a dish from your memory, or other customizations, Taskers would be more than happy to take on the challenge.

Thematic menu sets

Apart from the occasion itself, nothing makes an event more memorable than the look and feel of it all. If you have a set theme in mind for the overall event, party caterers can cater and align the menu to serve your guests with said theme. Post a task for graduation party catering near you or tea party catering near you, and let a party caterer handle everything from planning menu items to serving up the dishes in style.

Scalable packages

Be it an intimate function for a handful of people, or a buffet for a hundred, party caterers are up for the challenge with waiting staff capable of feeding a crowd and making sure they leave with satisfied smiles and stomachs. From a single-lane catering table to a more arranged multi-course meal, party caterers have packages that fit events of any scale.
