Happy Birthday To You From Orange County Best Caterers.
A birthday is a special time marking another great milestone in your life. As a kid it's a fun time filled with a reason to wish you were even older and then as life continues, you are celebrating accomplishments or maybe just going out and letting your hair down a little. At Orange County Best Caterers we've done birthday parties for people ages 2 to 100 literally. We've put the sweet in the sweet 16 and for our Latin friends we put have done some smashing Quincenieros. That's the equivalent of a sweet 16 for Latinos.
So let's get down to jogging your mind and getting the ideas flowing with our expert party catering advice!
In all our years we don't think themed birthday parties have ever gone out of style. In fact, they are bigger than ever. There is a theme for each new character that emerges from any of the cartoons or series for children. There are even some interesting themes for adults. So, where does the food come in? Believe it or not it matters what you have depending on the theme and the age and mix of children you have. In an adult party this stands to be the truth as well. You don't want a food and theme clash do you? For example--let's say you have a masquerade party with elegant masks and such. Would you cater in a giant foot long sub sandwich? We think not--this would be a major food clash and would probably have your guests talking for months to come. Do you think they would show up at another event? Um, no. So leave the Italian meatball or cold cut sub for the kids realm and class your masquerade ball up with a cocktails and fancy finger food.
Well you know we at Orange County Best Caterers couldn't hardly get away with not mentioning the one thing we do better than anyone in Orange County. The BBQ. And for birthdays we do it extra special. You see, BBQ is the most versatile of the catering world. Why ? Because you can do virtually anything on a grill. You can cater to young and old--to meat eaters and vegetarians. It's portable, messy and down home fun! Our backyard BBQ's are not just ribs, steak and chicken oh no! We have access to almost anything you can think of like smokers. From the less expensive meats to the cheaper varieties we have it all. How about some smoked salmon for the adults oh yeah with a little cream cheese and thyme? A little variety doesn't have to break the bank. Keep the good stuff for the adults and the kids are happy with hot dogs or Brats with hamburgers! They're gonna get full and pass out anyway so why not have a serious BBQ and order what you fancy first!
Finger Foods on a Budget.
Just because you are on a budget doesn't mean you have to settle for less than great flavor! This means you have to have the right caterer and we are it for sure. At Orange County Best Caterers we have served every budget and every taste. We've catered to people that have intimate gatherings of 20 people and birthdays that called for a couple of hundred. Your head count does matter as far as pricing goes but that doesn't mean you have to break the bank or sacrifice quality. It just means you have to think outside the box and that is what we do best! One secret is to stick with a limited but flavorful menu!
Most catering companies have a set menu for most things and it's just easier but at Orange County Best Catering it's different because we're different. We know what to do to make any birthday party or any of the other events we cater--and there's a lot--look--feel--and taste like a million bucks even when your budget it far from it. After all, your guests aren't going to remember what you said you paid--they will remember the food, the fun and the family.
