How To Serve Food At Your Cocktail Party

A cocktail party is a special thing for a caterer. Some folks think it’s simpler than a regular dinner because there is less structure to it. However, there are a ton of moving parts to any cocktail party, and even serving the food requires a lot of careful planning and thought.


#1 Go with the flow of traffic. How and where the food is served at a cocktail party will have a big effect on the traffic flow. Partygoers will start at the bar and move on over to the food. You will have to make sure the food is moving so that you will avoid crowding issues that will stifle conversation.

#2 Keep the food moving. Butler service is great for a cocktail party if you have enough staff to help out there. You want to have two or three caterers circulating the food on little trays. Tell your catering staff to make sure the trays are moving and to stay away from the bar and entrance areas so that guests can get in and then mingle about. Another way to keep food moving is to keep it out on little trays throughout the party area.

#3 Don’t forget the “wow” factor. A cocktail party will give caterers a special opportunity to make stunning food since presentation is of critical importance. In some instances, the food will become a part of the party décor. If the party is very big, ensure that you include a big display of cheeses, for example.

Surprise People With Form, Not Just Flavour

Think about unique and creative ways to present your food. Don’t just think about the dishes or recipes you’re going to craft. Put a lot of effort into unique presentation.
