  • Planning a Halloween Party? Don’t Forget to Invite Buca!


    As the end of October rolls around, adults and kids are focused on the fun of Halloween. Kids are dreaming about the sweet treats they will find in their bag after an evening of trick or treating and adults heading to a costume party might be wondering who will win the contests.

    Make a Reservation at Buca today or Order Catering for Your Halloween Party Here!

    Trick or treating with little ones

    When you are deciding on you and your family’s costumes, think about comfort and safety. Wear comfortable shoes and use reflective tape, glow sticks, and flashlights to be sure that your candy cruising crew will be well seen. Opt for face makeup, rather than masks for comfort and unobstructed views. In the days leading up to Halloween, discuss safety measures with your children, such as walking in well-lit areas, crossing the road, and watching for cars.

    Hosting an adult costume party

    You never outgrow the fun of Halloween! Many adults head off to adults only costume parties every Halloween (or say every year “we should really host one of those”). This year is the year to make it happen! Make sure you have plenty of decorations hung, games planned, and that everyone is safely driving home if cocktails are being consumed.

    Ghosts and ghouls can’t live on candy alone

    It doesn’t matter if your guests are little princesses or giant pirates, no party is complete without the right menu. Offer a variety of yummy options with easy and delicious Buca catering. A buffet full of Italian specialties will beckon your guests to grab whatever they like as they enjoy the party. A balanced meal will help prevent crazy blood sugar spikes and crashes from mini-candy binges in little ones and adults need to fuel up for their all night dance party! This Halloween, gather all your friends, family, and neighbors for a tasty treat before heading out to ring doorbells. With Buca catering or Buca To-Go, no one will have to make dinner and everyone can check out each other’s costumes before heading out to search for candy. This is also a great time to get some group pictures while everyone’s freshly attired and not yet running in all directions.

    With a little planning this year can be the best Halloween ever. Let Buca take care of your pre-trick or treating meal or costume party buffet so everyone can focus on having a spooky, fun night together!

  • Don’t Wait! Start Planning Your Holiday Events with Buca Today!

    early bird holiday catering

    Believe it or not, it is time to start planning your holiday events. From sit-down corporate holiday dinners to informal family gatherings, it’s never too early to start organizing all of the details. The size, complexity and type of celebration you are hosting will determine the amount of preparation necessary. For example, a family dinner for 10 people may only take a few hours to plan but a large scale company party will require several weeks. Give yourself ample time to put together the best holiday party this year, start your holiday planning today! Here are a few advantages to early holiday event planning:

    Get Started Early and Order Your Holiday Catering Today!

    Greater Turn Out Rate

    The sooner you send out your invitations or “Save the Date” cards, the higher the probability that your guests will not already have another scheduled event. You should then send the official invitation with RSVP closer to the event date. Be sure the guest/spouse/significant other is included on the invitation.

    Choice of the Best Venues

    Early party planners have the best choices when it comes to selecting their venues, catering, and entertainment companies. The longer you wait to confirm your details, the less likely you will be able to put together the event experience you originally envisioned. No one wants to be stuck hosting their holiday party in the corporate office because all other possible venues were booked. Booking and planning before the holiday rush can also be a better financial choice, since prices often increase along with demand.

    Choice of the Best Food

    Corporate holiday events mean you need to show your team that you recognize and appreciate their hard work. Family holiday events are especially memorable as sometimes it is the only time of the year all family members are together. Both type of events require plentiful portions of food that everyone loves. So skip the stuffy steakhouses and the restaurant around the corner where everyone goes for lunch each week and choose a truly special menu. Buca di Beppo knows how to make every event feel special. From corporate party catering to warm family gatherings in our welcoming restaurants, Buca is the perfect choice for all of your holiday events.

    Before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season sets in, call us to discuss all of your reservation and catering options. Are you wanting to celebrate at your home? We can’t wait to tell you about all of our amazing catering packages. Are you wanting to celebrate at a restaurant where you know the service will never disappoint? You know that our staff is here to serve. Wherever you choose to host your event, choose a team you can trust. At Buca di Beppo, we consistently provide delicious Italian dishes and truly care about your event. Don’t leave something as important as your holiday menu to chance! Contact us today!
