Best Ways To Cater For Individuals At Your Party!

Sweet n Spicy Mango Chutney

Everybody knows that planning any type of party can be stressful, regardless of whether its a tea party for a handful of people or a big birthday bash for hundreds of people. Nevertheless, I think that we can all agree that one of the most stressful elements of planning a party isn’t the expenses or deciding who to invite, it’s being able to cater efficiently for all individuals that will be there.

Now this is a very hard task to fulfil when people just generally like or dislike different things, but when people have different  allergies or specific diets that they need to stick to, the task starts to feel like it’s almost impossible to execute. We recognise that this can be a huge set back for some people because nobody wants to exclude anybody especially from something as important as food. Having dealt with this issue many times ourselves in the past, Green Sisters was formed because we think that food should always be inclusive, so here are a few of what we think are the best ways to cater for all individuals when planning a party!

 

Ask Questions About Their Allergies or Diet!

This may seem like the simplest and maybe even most obvious thing to do but sometimes it’s the easy, simple things that we often forget about. When planning your party, give yourself a few weeks in advance to ask each individual about what their allergies/diets are and make sure to ask follow up questions so that by the end of the conversation, you have a pretty good idea on the things their diets entail. Asking these questions in advance will grace you with a bit more time to find the perfect meal or snacks for your party!

Simple, Simple, Simple!

To make it easier for yourself, we would suggest finding a simple meal or snack to serve your guests. Something that doesn’t take that long to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients would be the best way to go. If you need help with deciding, there are many recipes online and in books, so you should be able to find something that allows you to cater for all.

Keep Them Apart!

If you decide to make or provide more than one dish where one is allergen friendly and the other one isn’t then make sure you keep them away from each other. The last thing we want is a cross contamination nightmare! Be sure to put them on different plates and add a label to each of them clearly stating what they are and the allergens that they contain. I promise you, this will make things a lot easier for everyone.

So there we have it, a few of our best ways to cater for all individuals when planning a party. If you ever get stuck on what food to serve at your party then don’t forget to look at where you are right now!
