Planning For Food

Food is the most important part of any party. You need to figure out how much food you will need beforehand. This means you need to decide how many people you expect to invite.

When you are ordering food, you need to remember that you will need to prepare it yourself. You won’t be able to just buy pre-cooked food and heat it up. You will need to cook the food yourself.

This means you will need to factor in the cooking time. Most foods take around 30 minutes to cook. So if you are planning on serving turkey bacon, you will need to add 30 minutes onto the cooking time.

The same goes for appetizers. You will need to add 30 to 45 minutes onto the cooking time for appetizers.

However, you will need to think about the weather. If it is going to rain, then you will need to bring coverings for tables and chairs.
