Special Event Party Catering

May 26, 2015 - Party Catering

The Walnut Creek International Short Film Festival is coming up this weekend, and local movie buffs will be going to Century Walnut Creek 14 and Lesher Center for the Arts to see short films and documentaries from around the world. Many of us TV or movie lovers prefer, however, to watch our favorites without moving a muscle, right in the comfort of our own home. Why go to downtown Walnut Creek or Broadway Plaza when I’ve got the big screen TV and sound system in the basement set up just how I like it?

So, we thought this would be a great opportunity to clear up what is perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions about catering. Most people think they should hire a caterer only for a wedding, large business engagement, or other massive gathering. Nonsense! Why not order catering for your next movie marathon? Or your Super Bowl Party? Catering comes in all shapes and sizes, and that’s why your local catering company can be a terrific, effortless option, especially if you need to feed many of your friends and family watching with you. Not only this, but you can also choose to do themed catering if you wan to make it a true fan’s party.

I can’t even count the number of times my friends and I have been in front of the TV, waiting for the game or movie to start…and then someone asks: hey, do you have any snacks? Where are the drinks?  Now, if it’s only a few people, this isn’t usually a big deal. But, on the many occasions that we’ve had viewing parties, inviting over everyone and their mother, panic ensues. The pantry is empty. The fridge only has half a gallon of milk left inside. I either have only Coke or Diet Coke, not both. Quickly, we run over to the grocery store, hoping to get back before the show starts. We negotiate over flavors of chips and soda, stand in line, and then have to haul it all home.

For occasions like this, and especially if you’re having a viewing party for a major event, like the Super Bowl, World Cup final, or maybe the season premiere of Game of Thrones, you can impress your friends with the ease and comfort of catering without really having to break the bank.

For example, discount catering is a great option for those wanting to deck out their living room table just enough (but not too much!) so everyone’s got plenty of food, drinks, and snacks for the big game. After all, you don’t need to order lobster or caviar for a football game. Just hire a caterer that’ll take care of all your chips, salsa, beer, and soda needs for you at a reasonable rate, making your only job enjoying the game.

For an even easier hassle-free experience, go with drop off catering and get all the drinks and snacks you could ever need delivered right to your door, ready to go for the game or movie marathon. Getting catering delivered lets you easily get not only food, but also all the plates, utensils, and napkins you’ll need for a festive viewing party and effortless cleanup. Additionally, everything can be delivered hot and ready for eating, leaving you with nothing to do but sit back, watch, and enjoy. Drop off catering can also be incredibly varied, and tailored to each guest’s personal needs. Remember that grocery run I mentioned earlier? Well, whenever my friends and I wanted something more substantive than chips and soda to enjoy the game with, it always had to be pizza delivery. Pizza, pizza, and more pizza. But, with a catering company’s drop off food service, you can get not only pizza, but have your choice of hundreds of different food items, so that every member of your viewing party is satisfied.

Contrary to popular opinion, the easy catering options above are perfectly suited for more casual occasions like TV or movie marathons, or Sunday Night Football (although, to many sports fans or Game of Thrones fanatics, games and season premieres are anything but casual).
