So you are thinking about hosting a rather large dinner party, and want to do it all on your own, without using the services of an outsourced catering company. This is a great way to save some money and enjoy the actual preparation of it all, but it is going to take some planning, which hopefully you will enjoy and be prepared to again the next time, when another chance comes around to impress and entertain your friends. If they really enjoy the experience, they might shower you with gifts of gratitude and you could be the talk of the town. Of course, that’s not why you might be doing the party, but it’s an added bonus to feel wanted, needed and appreciated. 


If you don’t really have enough of your own second hand catering equipment Sydney, then you would be advised to invest in some from Hosbay. This won’t be used as a once off measure, as you will be using it in the future again, when you host your next party. From cutlery to crockery and back again, including all other elements you are going to need on the day or night, you will need to create a list of what you do have and what you don’t have. From there, go out, shop around, in store and online, to find the things you will need. 


Wouldn’t you love to wow your guests with some of the finest silverware around, rather than the old and mismatched cutlery you have lying around in your draws and cupboards? Invest some cash in some of the finest forks, knives and spoons and, in a sense, their use will make the food taste even better. It will add an elegance to your party, if you are going for somewhat of a regal theme. Either way, it is a veritable must have. 


There is something quite nice about drinking a beer, soda or some hard tack from the appropriate glass. Tumblers, high balls and flutes are among these, and should be available from the hiring company you go with. Or you might even want to again consider purchasing these things for future value. You can even get some pretty plastic items for kids, who don’t obey the ‘two hands on the cup at all times’ rule and tend to be clumsy and break glasses. This will put their parent’s minds at ease, leaving them to drink, eat and be merry even more. 


You don’t want your guests standing around and mingling too much. They all work hard jobs, with some long hours at the office, so would appreciate a comfortable seat they don’t have to fight over with others. Ensure there is ample place to sit by going out and buying extra chairs and cushions for bums even. They don’t have to be the fanciest of fancy, and in fact should be simpler rather than complicated. This will probably heighten the comfort factor, which will make guests enjoy themselves even more. Your party will be all the more successful.
