There are few things in life more satisfying than hosting the event of the season that everyone remembers in your home. Whether you’re planning a graduation party for your recent grad, a milestone birthday event for your partner or a dinner party to help support a cause near and dear to your heart, there are many different ways you can prepare. There are many options to choose from when it comes to party catering across the San Francisco area. Here are a few tips and tricks for your next dinner party.
Delight them with the details
With the perfect event, every little detail counts. While not required for an event you’re hosting at home, it’s the little touches that will bring your event to the next level and have people talking about it for months to come.
Fork & Spoon Productions can assist with all party needs. What kind of event are you envisioning? A birthday bash for a rose lover? Hire a florist who can create a greenery wall stacked with live roses for a beautiful backdrop to your celebration. Hosting on Cinco de Mayo? Partner with a rental company who will help you find the right sarape linens and help set the stage with colorful entryway décor. Trying to make a strong first impression? Add a scent to your invitations when you send them out, inspired by the theme of your party.
There are so many ways that you can make the party your own, beyond hosting it at your place.
Create the ultimate menu
It’s no secret that the food can make or break any event. This is why you want to partner with someone you can trust to create unique menu offerings that seamlessly fit your theme and celebration. Our team provides custom menus that feature fresh, seasonal ingredients and guarantee an experience in your home that guests will not encounter elsewhere.
If you’re hosting an intimate celebration and want to create something truly special, do a multi-course pairing experience. Our chefs can help you customize any menu with sommelier suggestions in mind. And our team can work with you to transform your dining room into an Italian-inspired wine cellar for the most romantic backdrop.
Not a fan of a sit-down dinner? Go for a tropical or luau theme with stations and heavy hors d’oeuvres to start. The poke bowl bar is a huge hit, as guests can customize their bowls to their palate and have fun while doing it. You could also welcome them with tuna poke bites topped with avocado, macadamia, mango and sweet chili marinade or sweet sesame beef skewers.
One thing to keep in mind is dietary restrictions. You’ll want to work out a menu that offers a little something for everyone, which includes vegetarian and vegan options. Luckily, our menu offerings are so fun and creative that more often than not, you can find plates everyone will enjoy.
One way to really customize your evening is by providing a garden-to-glass specialty cocktail that commemorates the event and welcomes guests with locally sourced ingredients hand-crafted by one of our expert mixologists.
Spread the wealth
While we all want to feel accomplished and plan a festive fete on our own, it’s usually not that simple. If you want your dinner party or celebration to really wow everyone, it’s important to hire experts who understand the ins and outs of planning an exceptional at-home event.
We partner with top design and décor professionals like Do Good Events to help us create events that truly shine. That way, every special occasion is personal and made to fit. It’s not just a dinner—it’s an entire production.
Consider working with a company that has experience expertly staffing a dinner event for flawless service, knows how to properly prep and set cuisine for food safety and presentation and knows how to effectively manage every little detail and troubleshoot like a pro. This is ultimately someone you can trust to take the stress off you during the event so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
We pride ourselves on the exceptional party catering we’re able to provide guests throughout San Francisco. If you’re looking to host the event of the season at your home, we’d love to help take some of the stress away. Connect with us and let’s start creating an unforgettable event for you and your guests!
