Part of the reason why you hired a caterer in the first place was to make sure there was enough food, that the ingredients were of the finest quality, and that the preparation was sanitary and impeccable.

It’s all in the caterers

They’ve probably catered hundreds or even thousands of events, including all sizes and different themes.
