Entertaining at Home or at Function Venues in Gauteng
What route would you take when planning a function in Gauteng? Unless the event is to be hosted at your workplace premises, which is often a somewhat unsuitable venue for a function, you have two choices in the Gauteng area – at your home or at an independent venue that’s equipped for a variety of events and special occasions.
Unless your function is a small, intimate dinner, lunch, or cocktail party to which only a few guests are invited, there are more cons than pros to entertaining at home, particularly if you’re to attend to the catering, instead of hiring professional caterers. The arrangements and facilities for which you’ll have to plan are almost endless in a densely populated area like Gauteng. You will need to organise the following:
- Sufficient space to host a function in comfort.
- Appropriate seating.
- An area from which to serve.
- The required cutlery, crockery, glassware, and cooking utensils.
- Décor and setting.
- Knowledge, skills and catering equipment required to prepare delicious dishes and fancy foods.
- Facilities to keep hot foods hot and cold dishes cool and fresh.
- Trained serving personnel or prepare to attend to all aspects of service and hosting on your own.
- Adequate, secure parking facilities for guests – not the easiest thing to arrange in busy, bustling Gauteng and its urban areas.
The biggest downside, however, of using your home in Gauteng as a function venue is typically the session of after-party blues and detested chores. These tasks include clearing away function décor, used plates, glasses, dishes, and cutlery, and washing up and restoring your home to its former state of order, cleanliness, neatness, and comfort. When you’re exhausted after being responsible for an event, even loading the dishwasher becomes one task too many.
