When you want to bring people together, there’s no better way to do it than with a catered event. Not only does it provide a delicious and memorable meal, but it also provides the guest of honor or host an opportunity to enjoy themselves, too!

Whether you’re hosting a formal corporate reception or bringing family together for a bridal or baby shower, catering can be the perfect addition to your next event. With that in mind, here are some tips on how to make your next catered event a memorable one.

Corporate Events 

When planning and hosting a corporate event, you want to ensure that your gathering is professional but fun. Among the best ways to do this is by having two lines for food – one line with basic buffet options and another serving specialty dishes that are sure to impress your guests. 

Box lunches are another excellent option for corporate events, as they simplify the serving process and are easy to pick up and eat on the go.

If you’re hosting an event after business hours, catered options including bar service, cocktail receptions, Hors d’oeuvres, and late-night snacks can also be a big hit. 

Family Events 

Whether it’s a baby shower or wedding reception, family gatherings are for celebration. As the host, you don’t want to miss out on any good parts because you’re busy refilling drinks or serving food. 

Plated and family-style meals are an excellent solution for family gatherings, as they allow your guests to serve themselves and ensure that there’s enough food for everyone – even the pickiest of eaters!


What better way to celebrate a life event with friends, family, associates, and neighbors than a good old-fashioned cookout? When entertaining a guest list of 50 or more people, especially on a nice day, firing up the grill with traditional favorites including burgers, hot dogs, and brats will be a crowd-pleaser. Other catered cookout options worth considering include ribeye steak sandwiches, boneless pork chops, boneless chicken, kabobs, ribs, or even cooking an entire pig.

And, don’t forget about those on your guest list following dietary restrictions such as vegetarian, gluten-free, or paleo. Northern Kentucky Catering offers dishes that cater to these nutritional needs and preferences.

The perfect addition to any cookout is a salad bar with fresh vegetables and fruits. Not only will guests enjoy the dish, but it also provides a great healthy option!
