Hosting a party is undoubtedly fun but equally daunting as well. You have a million tasks to do while attending to the guests with the happiest face, and you cannot do all of that in a single day. You will definitely have to make some preparations in advance so that you can enjoy the event as well.
Our tips to prepare and store food in advance will help you get rid of the hassle you go through on the day of the event.
Foods that Can be Stored for a Week
Make a list of all the food items and drinks you want to prepare for your event. This will help you have a better understanding of what foods to prepare a day or a week before. Food items that can be made and put in the freezer for weeks include tender pops, kebabs, turkey meatballs, nuggets, and potatoes for fries.
Put them in the freezer in our premium plastic serving bowls. All you’ll have to do is take them out of the freezer and fry them right away on the event day.
Foods to Prepare the Day Before
Foods that can be cooked a day before the event include beef stew, lasagne, chickpea pasta salad, quinoa muffins, and skillet meatballs. All these foods taste amazingly fresh and delicious, and your guests will think you just cooked them.
You can also prepare some no-bake desserts the day before since they require to be refrigerated overnight. No-bake Oreo cheesecake and banana cream pie feel like a treat. Put them in our plastic serving trays with disposable plastic lids on them to keep them fresh.
Meals to Prepare Partially
Some meals lose their taste and aroma if not served freshly cooked. However, some preparations can be made ahead of time, and you can assemble the ingredients together on the day of the event. For example, you can boil the rice for a rice dish or make toppings for some desserts.
Instructions for Frosting and Defrosting
For defrosting the frozen items, it is better to take them out of the freezer a day before cooking and put them in a refrigerator. The containers you are using for freezing the food items should be airtight.
If you are using a microwave for defrosting, check its power because some microwaves don’t cook the food evenly. Also, if you are having health concerns, use our BPA-free plastic supplies that are health-friendly.
Set the Tables Ahead of Time
Cooking is not the only task that consumes your time in an event. Setting the tables and decorating the whole place should also be done a day before. Adorn your party tables with our disposable serving party supplies along with some matching floral centerpieces.
Our plastic serving trays and disposable serving flatware make your table decor look elegant and make things a lot easier for you. You can shop them in a wide range of colors to match your theme. You won’t even need to wash them after the party.
