Party Food - Order Party Food Online

Updated on July 2, 2011

Save Time and Order Party Food Online

Save time and hassle and order your party food online.

When you're having a party, be it a birthday party, dinner party or any other sort, the last thing you want to do as a host is spend hours in the kitchen cooking party food. What you want to be able to do is mingle with your guests and enjoy yourself, without ending up frazzled around the edges and with a kitchen which looks like you've hold a competition to see how many utensils, pots and pans you can use in one go.

The easy answer to this is to buy in some, if not all of your party food, and to make it even easier, a lot of this can now be done online and either collected, or in some cases, delivered to your door.

With everything from vegetarian party food to hog roasts available to order online, the most you have to do is re-heat, serve and sit back.

Where to Buy Party Food Online

There are different options available of where to buy your online party food, depending on the sort of event you're having, the number of guests you're catering for and the type of food you want.

For finger food or informal dining many large food retailers such as Waitrose or Marks and Spencers in Uk offer a good choice of products. You can order anything from sandwiches to seafood platters and curries (the Waitrose ones are fantastic) to cakes. Most products needs to be ordered around 5 days in advance and are either available to collect in store, though some retailers such as Waitrose will deliver your party food order to your door.

Do not think of this as cheating - it's more of a stress and time saving exercise, and so long as you're not claiming to have made everything from scratch no-one is going to think any less of you. In fact if the reactions I've seen recently are anything to go by everyone will think you've been very clever to do it and make things a little easier for yourself.

Other Party Food Options - BBQ Spit Roast

For something different you can look at ordering a spit roast for your event, great for larger events such as summer parties, or corporate entertaining.

Once set up and prepared a hog roast provides an impressive centerpiece to any occasion.

These are available to operate on a DIY basis but can also be hired in entirety i.e. with a chef plus other dishes such as salads to go with it.

Order Dinner Party Food Online

If you're looking for something a little for impressive for a special occasion there are now a wide range of fine dining companies who will deliver a complete dinner party to your door, all ready prepared and needing little more than a bit of re-heating on your part.

Perfect for a romantic meal for two, for a dinner party for 10 when you just don't have time to cook. After all what's the point in inviting anyone over to dinner if you don't get a chance to talk to them because you're knee deep and coulis and cream in the kitchen.
