How to Make Your Private Party Memorable
Well-Planned Private Party Catering Leads to a Memorable Event for All Guests
There are many types of private parties/events for which a person might choose or be asked to take on the responsibilities of principal organizer and/or host. Such occasions may include:
- Bridal showers/engagement parties
- Milestone birthdays or anniversaries
- Religious ceremonies or celebrations
- Retirement parties (after work hours)
- Client appreciation/invitational events
- Staff appreciation/recognition lunches
These events are very often held in private homes or rented banquet halls, meaning that venue catering will likely be required; however, after determining the actual venue and date of the party, the planner/organizer might have some reservations about taking on this role, especially when the time comes to choose the type of catering/food. This can be even more challenging if (or perhaps when) it is strongly suggested or recommended to them that it would be nice to have “something different” instead of the usual fare such as sandwiches, pizza, finger foods, etc.
So how does one go about resolving this type of dilemma? This is where a professional catering service with experience in private party catering, such as Ida’s Kitchen, can provide a decided advantage. The premium and diverse catering menus and the quality of food preparation from Ida’s Kitchen can fulfill the need to make the event unique/distinctive and leave all guests with a memorable and lasting experience.

Complete and Worry-Free Banquet Catering Services from Ida’s Kitchen
Menu choices will clearly play an influential role in the immediate and lasting impressions of a catered private party. All too often, attendees will continue to talk about an event or function after-the-fact only because the quality of the catering was felt to be subpar.
The private catering menu offered and prepared by the staff from Ida’s Kitchen will in fact have the opposite effect – guests will be talking long after the function about the combination of flavours and spices they enjoyed within the following courses/options:
- Hors D’oeuvres – hot or cold
- Soups and Salads – standard or international fare
- Entrees – meat, fish, vegetarian, crepes, casseroles
- Signature Sandwiches and Wraps – multiple choices
- Barbecue – Classic, Southern, Caribbean, Mediterranean
- Dessert Platters – seasonal fruit and fresh-baked pastries

- Tables and chairs
- Tents and canopies
- China, flatware, glasses
