  • How to Host a Perfect Holiday Party

     Party Plannin

    The end of the calendar year brings lots of holidays and celebrations. Hosting the perfect holiday party requires some pre-planning and a festive outlook. First, you need to decide when you want to have your party. Choose a date that works for key guests. Everyone is very busy at this time of year and it is inevitable that someone will be unable to attend. You can’t accommodate everyone’s schedules so focus on a few that are absolutely vital to your gathering. Next, send out your invitations. Whether you choose online or traditional paper invitations isn’t as important as the fact that you actually send them out. They allow your guests a reference point as the party approaches to verify times, address, and attire, also the RSVPs will determine your menu planning.

    Order Catering for Your Holiday Party Here!

    If you will be hosting your holiday party at your home, you can begin preparing your space a few days before the event. Clean your house, rearrange your furniture, and establish an area for guests’ coats. You may want to make a playlist featuring a mix of holiday classics and current favorites. Prepare your powder room with extra hand towels, tissues, and a scented candle. Begin emptying your ice maker basket into clean plastic bags and storing in your freezer or designate someone to pick up a few bags from the store immediately before the party begins.

    The day of your party you can set up your beverage area. Don’t try to offer every spirit and spend your whole evening playing bartender. Have a signature drink for your guests such as a sparkling punch. This paired with beer, wine, bottled water, and sodas will accommodate everyone’s drink wishes. Have nuts placed throughout the party area and set out plates, silverware, napkins, and glasses near where your food will be. Also have serving bowls, platters, and serving utensils ready for your dishes and anything your guests bring. Just before your guests are set to arrive: light your candles, dim your lights, and put on some music.

    Offer appetizers to hold your guests over before the meal is ready. Serving a meal buffet style generally works best and is most comfortable for guests. If you aren’t sure what sort of a menu you should have, let Buca di Beppo help. Our half and full Party Pans and Celebration Packages offer everything you need; from salads and appetizers, to entrees and desserts.

    If you want to have a holiday party but your place is too small or the thought of having everyone in your home stresses you out, host your event at a favorite venue. Buca di Beppo’s dining and banquet rooms are a perfect gathering place for your holiday party. You and your guests will enjoy delicious Italian specialties and receive attentive service from our knowledgeable and friendly staff.

    Call Buca di Beppo to make your reservations and start planning your holiday party menu today. Then let everyone know that this year the party’s at Buca!

    Restaurants for Business Lunch

    Sometimes, the most exciting part of the work day is lunch… especially when that lunch consists of a trip to Buca di Beppo! Whether you and your co-workers just can’t decide where to eat today or you’ve got to entertain some customers for the afternoon, at Buca de Beppo Italian Restaurant, we turn business luncheons into exciting, appetizing events.

    Choosing the Right Restaurant

    One terribly common business lunch “faux pas” is setting up the meeting time without committing to a place. When this happens, you and your business associates run the risk of winding up somewhere less-than-conducive to a productive luncheon. Keep in mind that a lunch meeting is supposed to be a fun alternative to a typical mid-day meeting, not a supplement to it. At Buca, you and your colleagues can enjoy a hearty meal in a unique setting that’s not too casual, yet definitely not uptight. Our colorful restaurant interiors can make even the most serious kind of shop talk seem like scintillating conversation and our authentic menu can definitely make the work day more delicious!     

    The Company That Eats Together

    With our eclectic décor and our many made-for-sharing dishes, a business outing to Buca di Beppo actively promotes team building and networking. Really, what bring people together better than food? Our decked out dining rooms feature comfortable booths as well as spacious communal tables for larger parties and our grand portions guarantee that nobody will leave lunch feeling like they’ll need another lunch break later. A lot of awesome appetizers are available during lunch and they’re perfect for business folk. They give you something to do before the main courses arrive and they allow you to split a menu item without any awkward plate-passing games. Buca Bruschetta with Roma tomatoes, mozzarella and balsamic presents a very tasty substitute to a run-of-the-mill bread basket while the Buca Trio Platter with calamari, mushrooms, cheese and marinara offers something for every taste. Entrée options include baked pastas, seafood specialties, vegetarian dishes and more.

    Corporate Catering

    When attempting to plan a business luncheon for an entire office, corporate catering is the easiest way to satisfy everyone and still save money as opposed to calling in individual meals. There are many benefits to catering a business function on company premises but with the wrong caterer, it’s easy to forget that. Fortunately, we have extensive experience catering in-office functions and our authentic Italian offerings are always a big hit. We’re able to deliver pasta pans to destinations within a 10-mile radius of our locations and a full-size version feeds up to 20 hungry businesspeople. We also provide serving ware, plates and utensils so you don’t need an on-site kitchen to serve Buca. Call us today to experience corporate catering that actually satisfies at your next business luncheon!
