Big Parties for Special Birthdays

Birthday parties are not that uncommon. The more friends and family you have the more birthday’s parties you attend each year. Most people don’t expect much from these parties other than spending some quality time with loved ones and cake at the end. Now just about everyone considers their own birthday to be special, but there are few once in a lifetime birthday events which are special to everyone involved. These parties are always a bit larger and require a bit more planning to go off without a hitch and be remembered for the rest of their lives.

Here in America we have a melting pot of different cultures and traditions, even when it comes to birthdays there are some cultures which still celebrate the coming of age for young boys and girls. The Jewish culture celebrates Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah, at thirteen years old for boys and twelve years old for girls. In Mexican culture they celebrate quinceanera for young girls when they turn fifteen. Even the US has its own coming of age parties for young girls popularly known as a sweet sixteen. At the age of eighteen, when we are considered adults, is the coming of age officially recognized by our government. For all involved these are special events and large parties are made as a way of showing the world how proud they are of the birthday boy or girl.

Besides coming of age parties there are a few other birthday events which elicit large parties here in America. One milestone all young adults look forward to is the day they hit twenty-one. The first day they can legally drink is widely celebrated with big parties. When a person hits the age of fifty large parties are thrown in order to celebrate a well lived life. People also tend to throw large parties for people every ten years after fifty.

Big birthday parties are usually planned by loved ones and not professional party planners. Most of the event isn’t too much for a few people to plan but preparing food for thirty plus people can be a lot to handle and take up most of the time needed to prepare everything else. Turning the party into a potluck is always an option, but it puts a lot of responsibility on your guests which not everyone will appreciate. Catering is most peoples best option, providing high quality food prepared when you need it.

There are a lot of different catering companies out there to choose from, so there is no reason to hire a company which serves boring food. These events can be great opportunities to hire a company which offers unique and specialized food. You don’t have to go too far out of your comfort zone for a unique dish, places like Chicken Salad Chick offer new takes and flavors of chicken salad (over fifteen different kinds). So catering doesn’t have to be boring and with so many different types of food you’re sure to please your whole party. For more information you can visit them on Facebook or Twitter.
