Catering for Your 21st Birthday Party

A 21st birthday is one of those moments we flag, a turning point in our lives. The transition from “young person” to adult. It is also often around completion of education and stepping out into the world. And if that doesn’t deserve serious celebration – we don’t know what does!

Thanks for a wonderful Hollywood themed party you created. the decorations were fantastic and the catering food was delicious and staff went the extra mile. I  don’t know how you were able to create all of this theme in our back yard. The marquee was perfect, too, with the marquee gutters and cafe blinds on such a wet night. It was so easy, totally recommened Jenn and team for any function. My daughter’s 21st was a great success. Thanks again Jenn

Son’s 21st birthday, organised in a few days while parents flew in for the party then flew back out the following week.
Hi Jenn

Just wanted to thank you, Janine and Nicola, especially with such short notice. The staff on the night were great. Janine was great in the kitchen, and Nicola did really well on the bar. It made a real difference to have them there on the night so we could catch up with everyone properly.

Coming of age, a special moment in a life!

No two parties are ever the same. However, a great 21st birthday party always begins with a few essentials – a space protected from the weather (and sometimes a marquee), an experienced team, a stunning bar, a professional DJ to get your party moving, and your guest list sorted. Party food Melbourne can help to provide much more than just catering.
