Let’s be honest; when it comes to a Las Vegas birthday party, everyone wants to hear about the food. And why not? Food not only brings people together, but it also gives everyone the energy they need to really enjoy themselves. Your Las Vegas birthday party menu should be tailored to your guest list.
Las Vegas Birthday Party
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re writing out that grocery (or catering) list:
These days, allergies are pretty common – especially among the little ones. If you’re throwing a party for a young child, you might want to avoid common allergens like peanuts. It also might be a good idea to make sure there are gluten-free and/or dairy free options available if some of your guests are gluten or dairy free.
Determine difficulty level
Some foods are better when you’ve got a knife and fork and are sitting in front of a plate. If your party doesn’t involve a formal sit-down, you probably won’t be serving New York steaks. Keep in mind that you’ll need more paper goods and utensils for non-finger foods. If you want to stick to a casual stack of napkins, focus on foods that don’t require plates and utensils.
Think about budget
Sure, everyone would love to eat crab cakes, but if you’re providing food for 20 people, you probably don’t want to foot the bill. Consider foods that give you a lot of bang for your buck – like pizza, chips, sheet cake and soda pop.
Consider your Las Vegas birthday party guests
Obviously, the menu you choose for a 10 year-old’s birthday party will be different than what you select for a corporate event. If you’ll be partying with grown-up professionals, for example, you’ll likely want a variety of healthy options, like veggies and hummus and flatbreads. If it’s just the kiddos, stick with simple things like corn dogs and pizza.
