Melbourne Dj Hire have worked at a lot of house parties. Our Melbourne Djs have worked at some very fancy parties where our clients have booked catering to take care of all the food and drinks. But we have also worked at some low key events where the hosts have catered the entire night. One big reason is to save some money and to also cook meals that are family favourites, but the other reason is because sometimes the parties are small gatherings and they just wanted to keep it simple but also delicious.
One party we worked at was a family birthday we’re only the extended family and a few close family friends were invited. The mum did all the food prep the day before and then when the party came around she put a lot of things in the oven to cook and to heat up and the put the finishing touches on the other items. The food prep saved her a lot of time on the day where she was more focused on decorating the room and also getting the house tidied up.
In case you need ideas of what food prep you can do here is our clever clients menu. The day before the party she marinated chicken wings and on the day of the party the wings were put in the oven to cook. She purchased mini gourmet sausages and again put them in the over to cook. She also made a curry the day before and heated it up just before the guests arrived. The food prep was easy for the salads as all the fresh ingredients were cut prior and then the dressing was put on before serving.
One party that our Melbourne Dj worked at, the husband marinated the lamb meat the day before and then hired a large spit already barbecue and then they had that going on the day and the food was a big hit!
Melbourne Dj Hire know that there are a lot of costs when it comes to throwing a party and there are a lot of little tricks like food prep that are smart ideas that can save you a lot of time and money.
