3 Tips to Create a Summer Party Menu That’ll Keep Guests Cool and Contented

Clear blue skies, humid weather and plenty of bugs! But let’s forget about them and start planning the Summer party of the century. You can keep your party as casual as you like or maybe you could use the hot weather to give it a slightly tropical theme?
Although most adults will deny it, people love to dress up and it usually ends up giving great laughs. You could give flower garlands or grass skirts to party goers on entry, or how about throwing some rubber Hawaiian themed floats into the pool? And of course hula hooping and limbo competitions will really ramp up the fun!
After you’ve decided on your summer party theme, we need to get down to the nitty gritty of the event and create a great menu!

Tie Your Menu in with the Summer Theme

Getting your party catering spot on in the summer months is essential, so you don’t overfill people in the hot weather or have lots left over at the end. People tend to eat less when the weather is hot and a menu including lighter salads, barbeques, grazing platters and canapés is recommended, allowing guests to nibble instead of gorge on filling sit down dinners.

Is the Party Indoors or Outdoors?

After spending a lot of time indoors over the cooler season, you’re probably going to be holding your party outdoors. The barbeque might have been gathering dust and now is that ideal time to get it working again. Your event caterer can create you a delicious barbeque menu, with lighter salad options on the side. If your party is indoors, you can still opt for lighter foods in the form of finger snacks on platters, salad stations and tasty themed grazing tables.

Talk with Your Event Caterer About Tastes and Flavours

If you’re going for that tropical theme, talk with your party caterers about what image you’re looking to achieve at the party. For example; tropical summer parties will want colourful foods and cocktails, light salads and maybe a frozen dessert station where guests can get a cooling treat. Fruit platters will also work well here being light and refreshing to snack on.
Sushi platters could be a great option being small and quite light to consume. If you opt for the barbeque, skewers are ideal and can be accompanied with salads or grilled veggies. If you need some help choosing the perfect menu for your summer event, talk with your local event caterers in Sydney and they can guide you.

    • 5 star review  All I can say is WOW! I was lucky enough to have a friend refer me to One Pot Catering for my recent wedding. From the start Mandy was amazing in guiding Mark and I through the quote and organising a tasting for us. Wayne did the tasting in their kitchen and we were sold on it then and there. The food and the service are unmatched. From the chefs on the day to the kitchen staff and the wait staff. They went above and beyond. I want to thank everyone involved in making our day so beautiful. Our guests are still talking about that slow cooked lamb ❤️

    • 5 star review  Mandy from One Pot Catering cooked up the purrfect tucker for our reunion. Kate and the team in the kitchen were amazing. The duck pancake canape, the tender tasty poached prawns followed by Portuguese Chicken Maryland, Ocean Trout with tomatoes, roasted vegetables with beetroot plus asparagus and beans provided rave reviews from our gang of guests. Such scrumptious real food cooked purrfectly whilst still accommodating GF and Celiac needs.
