No two menus are the same; and we understand that. There are many factors to consider when choosing the best menu for your event. Our menu page is divided into categories to help you choose which cuisine matches your event. Some important things to consider when planning is the type of occasion, the time of year and the number of guests you plan to serve.
Type of Event
The type of occasion you are holding an event for is very important when selecting a menu. You want to be sure your food matches the ambiance. Whether it is business casual or black tie, All Occasion Catering has a fitting menu. For the business lunch, choose from our Picnic or Corporate selections. The Sandwich Box or Southern Comfort menus are great options for a quick lunch – featuring sandwiches and tasty sides. We also offer our Black Tie and Premier menu’s that provide for a more elegant feel. We are always happy to customize a menu to accommodate your event’s needs.
The time of year and the day of your event also weigh heavily on the decision of what menu to choose. In the winter, a holiday option such as our Roman Holiday menu, is sure to warm up guests and leave them full and happy. In the spring and summer, we would recommend items such as our Southern Shrimp Boil or Tropical Luau; perfect for a picnic day with family and friends. Time of day is also important to consider. A day time event should provide a lighter option, so your guests aren’t tired after eating. An evening event is a great opportunity to give your guests the heavier southern comfort they’re looking for.
Number of Guests
Whether you’re hosting an event for 1000 guests or your close family and friends, All Occasion Catering has a menu for you and your guests. The number of guests can affect whether you want to have a sit-down dinner or something more relaxed in a buffet style. Whatever your preference, All Occasion Catering will deliver.

I like that you mentioned to think about the time of year and day when you are figuring out what menu to have for an event. It sounds like this is a good way to ensure that the guests feel comfortable. Plus, it could be a good way to make sure they are refreshed if the weather happens to be particularly harsh.

Thanks for sharing the great thing that we need to choose the menu according to the various factors. Event and time are the important things to be kept in mind. Further, the number of guests is the most important thing. Amazing points to be kept in mind.

I’m at the age where a lot of my friends are getting married, so I’ve been wanting to learn more about how to choose a caterer. It was so helpful when you mentioned that I should find a caterer that is able to cater to the size of the event. Thanks for all the great tips on catering and how to prepare for an event.

You’ve got good information for choosing a menu. My fiancee and I are looking for a catering company, so I’ll remember this. It’ll be good to take into account the number of guests we have.
