Catering a wedding is one of the most important aspects of planning the big day. No matter what type of style or venue, bad food can put a damper on any celebration. You want full, happy and comfortable guests and a buffet style meal offers a few pros over sit down service.
There is so much more to consider than just flavors. Presentation and first appearances have a huge impact. You want your culinary presentation to be as exquisite as the taste. And Qube Caterers emphasise the importance of fresh ingredients, always displayed beautifully.
A buffet style meal can enhance the overall design of any venue. Depending on how they are organised, a buffet can become the perfect centerpiece for any party. In addition to decorations and design, they also offer a wide variety of options for food displays. With all the room buffet tables create, your caterers have more opportunities to create any menu and presentation to your specific style.
If your buffet is located in the center of a venue (or a “T” shape), also notice the movement of your crowd. You want to hire caterers who understand how to maintain a steady flow. Buffet set-up and organization is key and although there may be long lines, it is a great place for guests to chit chat and socialize. This type of buffet service will also save you money on staff and tableware costs.
A buffet simply offers a more casual atmosphere than sit-down service. Guests may want to chat with people who are not seated at their table, or they may need the loo but don’t want to miss their meal. Either way, you don’t want to make your guests uncomfortable. And since Qube catering offers both cold and hot buffet options, the food will always be the appropriate temperature for your guests to cater their plate to their liking.
There are a few more details that can help a buffet run smooth. Keeping tables clean, knowing how to make napkins easy to grab and understanding how to arrange and rotate food on the table are important issues. And the team at Qube definitely understands these concerns and how to handle them accordingly. They have extensive experience in both sit-down and buffet style meals and provide a wide range of services (staffing, cleanup, event advice).
