With the Covid-19 pandemic raging, having any kind of celebration can feel wrong and dangerous. But humans are social beings, and after a year of missed (or downscaled) events and gatherings, many are more than ready to host celebrations with in-person guests again. Food is a big part of any great party, and drop-off catering is a safe way to enjoy some delicious fare from a great company like Russian Doll Catering. Here are all the ways we make our drop-off catering safe and elegant for your events, and some advice for anyone considering using this option.
Micro events are one great way to minimize the risk of any disease transmission, by decreasing the number of attendees and allowing them to distance from each other more easily. This option has become popular, especially for weddings, as it gives the event planner a larger budget to spend on a more elaborate menu or decorations.
Having a caterer drop off food is also a great way to minimize risk, by reducing contact with unfamiliar people. Russian Doll Catering can leave food in disposable serving chafers to keep it hot for up to two hours. You can also rent wind protectors to keep wind from blowing out the heating element at an outdoor event, or for an elegant look at an indoor gathering. We also offer gold or silver chafers for rent for fancier events such as showers, anniversaries, weddings, etc. We also provide plenty of single-use plates, silverware, and cleaning supplies. Our food can be picked up as well. If you opt for drop-off, our delivery staff will set up the food stations for you. Everyone is properly trained on safety protocols (mask-wearing, sanitation, cleaning, etc.). We offer an extensive catering menu for drop-off, including breakfast and brunch, appetizers, salads, vegetarian and meat entrees, healthful and indulgent sides, dessert, and charcuterie. Check out our complete menu here.
Food picks and skewers can allow guests to pick up small bites such as hors’d’oeuvres or desserts without touching shared utensils. Plastic shot glasses and tasting forks and spoons allow guests to try small amounts of everything without spreading germs. Desserts baked right in a cupcake liner for individual portions that can be decoratively arranged on trays are also a great, safe idea. Be sure to let us know if you want to incorporate any of these ideas into your event catering.
Individually portioned meals packaged attractively in single-use containers are also a great way to ensure safety in serving your guests a delicious, high-quality catered meal. There are environmentally friendly options such as paper boxes or recyclable containers for those looking to be safe but respectful of the environment as well.
With drop-off catering, hosting a party even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic can be safe and provide all your guests with a great experience to help them unwind and celebrate a special occasion. Contact Russian Doll Catering to let us know how we can help you pull off a great event.
