Catered parties aren’t just for milestones anymore. The delightful sensation of being catered to (literally) can make any gathering extra special and give you that wonderful feeling of spoiling your family and friends. With the variety of excellent catering services available in the Hudson Valley, there’s no reason why you can’t host the dinner party of
your dreams and, come party time, have the energy to enjoy it.
Whether it’s a cocktail party with passed hors d’oeuvres or a feast for the extended family, let us help ease your mind about splurging on your special event.
1. less stress
We all know that feeding the masses starts days ahead of time with recipe hunting, list making, and ingredient shopping. Not to mention crunch time when everything has to come together. With a caterer to handle all of this, you can concentrate on the parts of planning you love, like decorating, planning fun activities, or finding the perfect outfit.
2. menu options
If some of your friends follow a gluten-free or vegan diet, while others love nothing more than traditional shepherd’s pie with rich gravy, we’ve got caterers on our list who can handle both with aplomb. Chefs who work with vegan or gluten-free fare know how to ensure those options are just as tasty as anything else on the menu, thus avoiding unsatisfied guests (or, worse yet, allergic reactions).
3. more playtime
You invited folks over because you love their company, right? With a caterer handling the serving and the refreshments, you’re free to get into those long, lovely conversations, go outside for a photo session, or dance the whole set without fretting over whether your guests’ food and drink needs are met.
4. custom service
Talk to a few caterers; many offer ranges of service from full-on event design and planning, decor, and clean-up, to simply showing up at the door with savory trays and pans full of goodness and vanishing again.
5. eating like royalty!
We all know your friends are there to see you and would be perfectly happy with the same deviled eggs and wings as last year. But why not spoil yourselves with something more exotic? Caterers in the Hudson Valley know exactly where to source the perfect local ingredients. Your guests can indulge themselves on foods that are more complicated than you might attempt to create in your own kitchen. A caterer is dedicated to preparing those dishes flawlessly.
