Catering companies in Mallorca offer everything from canopies to buffets to full seated dinner and all the auxiliary services such as decoration, music and any other special desires the host can dream-up such as fireworks, dancers in the sky to name but a few. Everything is possible.
Planning your event
Of course, you should plan carefully what you want. A five-course-menu or rather cocktails and tapas?
What should the atmosphere be like? “When somebody is planning a catering event, they should know that it takes time for make sure everything goes well: this includes the planning of the place, time, number of people to invite, what kind of food they would like, decoration, DJ or live music, buffet or service, equipment etc,” explains Gert Münstermann from the Kochteam Mallorca.
Hire a professional event organiser
In any case, the catering company will help you to determine exactly what kind of event you have in mind and how to achieve exactly what you want. “Our customers can trust that they will not have to organize anything themselves, once we have determined what they want. They can be their own guests,” is the philosophy of Alice von Gayling who can organise live music, fireworks and magicians, and through wedding agencies find suitable hairdressers or stylists.
The food can be selected beforehand from the repertoire of the catering company, often, also special client wishes are considered. The variety of the food offered ranges from traditional Mallorcan food or Mexican specialties to modern fusion cuisine with exotic influences.
“We do offer set menus, of course”, says Alice von Gayling, “however, only rarely will a client go for menu three and wine card two.” Thus, menu is flexible and has even cooked according to recipe’s by clients who knew exactly what they wanted. Most catering companies also offers the possibility to try the food in advance and select the one you like best.
You should calculate one or two weeks of advance planning for smaller events with up to fifty people, while for bigger celebrations such as weddings, christenings or other larger events with more than 50 guests you should contact the catering company at least one month in advance, advises von Gayling. “Often, the bridal couple begins to look for a catering company about a year in advance. The earlier you start to organise a wedding, the better.” This is especially true as the most popular locations and the best caterers can be booked out for many months in advance.

Venues for events
For the location, you can celebrate the event in your own home or rent a location. Many catering companies on Mallorca offer their own fincas, usually rural estates, where the celebration – whether company event, wedding or birthday party – can take place.
Ses Cases de Font Seca close to Bunyola, offered by Alice von Gayling, is one of very few locations on Mallorca that can comfortably seat up to 600 people in its interior. It is very popular with congresses and Spanish weddings, which often have hundreds of guests. But it is not only Mallorcans or Spaniards from the mainland who marry in Mallorca. Wedding tourism is booming: many English, Scottish and German people chose Mallorca as their wedding location, too, while enjoying the food and professional service Mallorcan catering companies such as Alice von Gayling offer.
