The morning of the party had arrived. My son was running around in the yard already. He was very excited about his party and expected to wake up to his party. He thought that when he woke up this morning, he would be surrounded by school friends, lollies. soft drinks and of course – presents. Unfortunately for him, it was just Mum and Dad at home today, but we did have presents for him, so that was alright. Sam had been playing outside all morning. We had got him a new bike, so he was wearing that in well. My husband and I were inside, decorating the inside of the house. We were putting up balloons, streamers and posters. Party hats, crackers, party horns and all sorts of small toys were being scattered all over the house. We had hidden chocolates and lollies around the house for the treasure hunt we had planned for later in the day. Just quietly, my husband were having a lot of fun setting up the house for Sam’s birthday party. Sam must of heard the van pull into the driveway because he sprinted out the front.
The Catering Melbourne van had just arrived and the catering team was starting to unload everything. Sam was leading a woman into the house, holding her hand and talking to her all the way. He introduced the woman from Party Catering Melbourne to me, and told me that she’d brought the food for the party. The team from Finger Food Catering Melbourne unloaded the food and left it with us. Sam hovered around the kitchen, waiting for a turned back, or a forgotten treat. I gave him an early cupcake, it was his birthday – he was allowed to have a cupcake before lunch.
Speaking to the caterer on the phone from Catering Melbourne, my worries washed away. I was so nervous about finding a catering company that actually cared about their food. I had been to a large number of parties lately and the majority of them had horrible food. I didn’t want to be remembered as one of those parties. To me, the food was everything. I’m obsessed with food. When I picked up the phone to dial the number earlier, my hands were shaking – I was that nervous. When I heard the friendly voice of the woman at Corporate Catering Melbourne and how confident she was offering menu suggestions, I knew I’d found a good company. I ended up getting everything I wanted at a fantastic price and they were able to have it all done in time for the weekend. Finger Food Catering Melbourne had just gone straight to the top of my ‘Best Catering Companies’ list.
I was so happy with the catering order that I spent the rest of the day focusing on party decorations, skipping and hanging, singing and pinning. This weekend’s party was set to a Mexican theme. I had planned to go completely overboard and everything seemed to be going well. Tomorrow would be filled with games and entertainment shopping. I had to find something fun, and Mexican, for us all to do. Adults didn’t always volunteer for party games so this part was always tricky. At least I would be able to see everyone again. I hadn’t realised how much I’d missed seeing all my friends, altogether in the one place. I wanted this party to be bigger than any I’d thrown before. This will be a party to remember.
It will be the best wedding in living memory in these parts, and the only thing that can top it is if it was a double wedding. Those sorts of things are rare these days, and people don’t often like sharing the limelight. I would love to share the limelight, since technically you are already sharing it with your partner. I would only share it with my best friends though, and I’ll see if David and Amy want to get married with us, and share in this moment. It will also mean that they can have some of the wonderful food that the party catering Melbourne crew makes and caters.
I have spoken to the happy couple, that is David and Amy, and they have agreed to come on board with the double wedding thing, and they are more than willing to go half in a catered wedding form the best of the best. I will call up the catering Melbourne crew to get them to start getting ready; we have a couple of weddings that we need to organise. I’ve been talking up the virtues of these guys to David and Amy for a long time and I can’t help but say, even if it was just an unconscious thing, how much I would love them to get married to each other at the same time as we do. I would love a double wedding, it’s like two weddings, but more. It’s like 2.5 weddings, in my mind, since the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. I will never be able to forgive myself if the wedding does not go exactly the way that I want it to, because it’s not just Brett and I getting married it is also our best friends: David and Amy. Lucky we have the best wedding catering Melbourne has to offer if it goes badly.
