Are you looking for a company that offers Mexican catering? Sometimes, when you are holding an event or party with a particular theme, it is difficult to find caterers who are providing the services you are looking for. We organized a Mexican themed party for my Mexican grandmother on her eightieth birthday and we had to do extensive research about the culture and the food to serve. With some effort and creativity, we were able to come up with the best birthday party for her.
Here are a few tips to make your Mexican party a successful one:
Research The Culture And Traditions
When my family and I were planning for the party, we had to read about the traditional activities done during birthday celebrations in Mexico. We were all raised in the States and we usually do American traditions. It was quite easy to do the research because the internet was loaded with valuable information. Also, we would recall many of our grandmother’s stories to make sure that we include things she was fond of as a little girl in Mexico. We paid great attention to the food and what were usually served during special occasions. You can research about food online and you will be surprised at how many sites are dedicated to Mexican cuisine.
Look For A Mexican Catering In Town
We only included a few key food choices and focused on color schemes for the venue’s design. We had difficulties looking for a company catering Mexican food in the neighborhood so we tried looking for one in our neighboring towns. You can look for caterers in your area through the yellow pages or the internet for Mexican catering. San Diego has a lot of restaurants for Latinos, so you might be able to find one easily. Through a recommendation of a friend, we were able to spot a good caterer who provided food for the party.
Taste Test Your Mexican Catering Provider
Oftentimes, people who are in the Mexican food catering business are Mexicans themselves. You can consult them on the type of food you can serve for your event. However, it is necessary that you still do a taste test with your chosen caterer. You need to make sure that you will be serving food that you like. We also consulted our caterer about the theme of the party and they gave us a few tips about it. We also asked for their sample centerpieces and if they do set-ups and flower arrangements. Another tip is to check the plates that the caterer will use for the event. I personally wanted to make sure that there will be no broken and dirty dinner wares for the guest. Luckily, the company made sure to take note of my request.
Planning The Party
Recently, I found out about a number of companies offering event planning services for clients. They also offer Mexican catering. Orange County and other states have these kinds of companies. So, make sure to do thorough research. If you have enough money to get their services, hiring an events coordinator will save you so much trouble.
