What do dinner catering services include?

An essential part of any dinner party is the food. You want your guests munching on food that they will be talking about for days, in a good way, of course. However, you don’t always have the time to whip up food for 20 in your kitchen. That’s why hiring a dinner party catering service is a godsend for your special events. Airtasker’s dinner catering services cover full-service dinners to simple boxed catering at your next event.

Treat your guests to a plated dinner service

If you’re looking for Easter or Thanksgiving catering service near you, you may want to opt for a plated service. This is a service type where you and your guests remain on your seats while the food is served to you. Food is usually brought out in courses with individual plates prepared for each person. It adds elegance and organization to your party, where your guests get to mingle and sip their wine in between courses. You can also hire a home chef if you want to experience a plated dinner service for more than one night. 

Have your boxed catering delivered

For more casual dinner parties, a boxed dinner catering may be perfect for the occasion. You can expect guests to receive individual boxes packed with their food for this service. However, if you’re planning a spontaneous dinner party, a dinner delivery from your favorite restaurant will do! It is an alternative to waiting in long lines for the buffet. This is also a drop-off service where the caterer leaves you with the food for you to distribute among your guests. If you want a boxed lunch every day, you can give meal planning and preparation a hand with another Tasker. 

Enjoy the buffet

Consider hiring a buffet caterer when you need Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Easter dinner catering near you. Buffet catering allows you to give your guests more options for their food. Here, food is arranged and laid out for your guests in a specific area. Guests line up and get their own food. For some caterers, you can add-on servers to assist your guests with the food. On your next holiday party, make sure that your home is holiday party-ready by having another Tasker decorate your home for Christmas.
