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.

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.

From a single-lane catering table to a more arranged multi-course meal, party caterers have packages that fit events of any scale.
