How to Plan the Right Menu for a Charter One Party

Food is one of the most important parts of a party, and one of the main things people will talk about the next day after a Fort Lauderdale boat rental. At Charter One, we have five-star gourmet chefs who are at your service, ensuring your guests don’t go hungry, and creating the perfect customized menu to suit your event. From delicious hors d’oeuvres to incredible entrees, our team will ensure your guests will enjoy every bite, with impeccable service from our staff the entire night.

Some questions to take into consideration when planning a party menu include:

  • How many people are you serving and what is your overall budget?
  • Do you want to offer your guests snacks before dinner is served?
  • Do you want to offer food and wine pairings?
  • Is there a theme you would like to continue through the food options?
  • What is the tone of the party? Is it casual, elegant, outrageous, etc.?
  • Will people be seated or walking around the ship? Do you want guests to enjoy food displays and stations to peruse on their own, or would you prefer service staff to bring food to the tables?
  • Are there any items your guests would prefer? For example, somebody traveling from inland may wish to try Florida seafood, as they are not likely to have many opportunities to have fresh fish
  • Do you want to serve desserts to satisfy their sweet tooth?
  • Do any guests have dietary restrictions or allergies? Is there a vegan or gluten-free alternative available?
  • Will children be on board? If so, perhaps planning a kid-friendly option would be nice

There are many things to take into consideration, especially when planning a larger event with up to 50 guests. If you are unsure where to start, do not hesitate to call the Charter One customer service line. We are happy to offer event planning services along with your party boat charter to ensure every small detail is taken care of, so you can focus on your outfit, your guest list, and of course, having fun.

Let us know what you are envisioning for your big event, and we will work with you to make it happen so you and your guests have an unforgettable time.
