Venues and Catering Options

Hosting a function is generally for a special occasion or celebration.  Deciding on the venue for your event will allow you to decide on any requirements including Beverage and Catering options.
There are so many options available with venue hire that narrowing down your options may be a great way to start.  If you are planning to have a preferred catering company, look for a venue that allows outside caterers.
Council offers a range of venues including halls that can be hired for private functions, wedding receptions, school graduations and corporate events.  
If you have an approximate number of guests ensure you have adequate space for everyone, tables and chairs if required and serving areas for food and drinks.
Deciding on the style of catering service may depend on certain factors.  A couple of key questions are
Are you planning formal seating or will seating be limited?
What is the length of function?
How many people will be attending?

Working with these answers you can create a menu specifically suited.
Finger Foods and Talk & Fork menus are ideal for functions where seating is limited no formal seating is provided during service.  Guests can enjoy food while socialising and moving around.
Tapas and Buffet options are more suited where guests will be seated during dinner.  Tapas are designed to be served to the table where buffets allow guests the chance to select their own dinner.
Corporate Events may only require Morning and Afternoon Tea or a Lunch service.  Wedding receptions work really well with the service of Canapés followed by dinner and dessert.  Advise your caterer of any set time schedule between services.
The number of guests attending is important when planning your venue and catering options.  Large guest numbers always makes for a great party!  So, plan ahead with access for guests to move around to ensure the flow to Finger Food or Buffet tables.
