Things We’ve Learned from Catering Events


There are some things that you should consider when you are deciding whether or not you should have your event catered or do it yourself. At Coburn's Catering, we have catered enough events to know that there are some good reasons to make sure you get someone else to do the cooking and serving.

If It Breaks

Using your own dishes to serve people is an inexpensive idea that could work. After all, you own the dishes, but if those dishes get broken, you will have to replace it. You could use plasticware and Styrofoam cups; but if you want people to feel like the party is elegant, glass and silverware are the only way to go. A caterer can take the worry out of whether or not you are hurting the environment or if your dishes will survive the event. Plus, there's no washing on your part.

Food Makes the Party

We know that food is the most important item at any party. A good menu could have people talking for days to come. At the very least, they will post status updates on social media about it. By getting someone to cater, you will be getting great food without having to invest the time in making it. You also do not face the problem of it burning or being inedible.
