Our Melbourne DJs have worked at many many house parties and most of the time we are lucky enough to sample the delicious party food. There are a mixture of different catering options our clients use for their parties, the most popular option is to hire an external caterer which could cost quite a lot of money. The other option is to cook the food yourself, some family members bring a dish a long and there are things coming off the barbecue or oven.
One of the catering styles we have noticed is some of our clients actually get takeaway! Especially for a teenage or young crowd where all the guests want to do is dance and party. At an 18th birthday we provided a photobooth for the mother ordered 20 pizzas from a local pizza store, got them cut up into bite size squares and they were all delivered at the same time. It was a great and easy idea and all the kids were happy.
Other parties where we have worked at got their local Chinese takeaway store to make a try of chicken wings or friend rice and noodles. And that is also a great way to cater for your party or even just to add some variety and options to your party menu.
Easy ways to cater is also just to buy finger food that can be thrown into the oven and delegate someone to keep and eye on them. DIY platters of chips, crackers, dips and deli goods are also a great way for guests to nibble at.
So here are a few catering tips Melbourne dj have picked up over the years. We hope this gives you plenty of inspiration for your next party!
