The Happier Holiday Party is One Where You Don’t Have to cook!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buca di Beppo for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


There was a day, way back when, when I was living and working in the professional world. I was expected to wear nice clothes and heels and coming to work without makeup was a serious no no. It was the Real Estate industry in the time of the big boom. You know when people were getting loans left right and center they couldn’t afford?

A big part of my job was putting together little affairs and to dos. And what do people like to do at affairs and get-togethers? They like to party and chow down! Sometimes it would absolutely astound me at just how much a hundred people could eat.



There were several times where I had to provide the food for some of these functions big and small. I remember one night, I was up all night long cutting up fruit for a platter that was a very, very specific request from my boss. It started off badly because she didn’t call me until about ten the night before.

New with a difficult time handing over any kind of project, she wanted to get the catering straightened out herself. I was cool with that because I always had so much to do to get ready for that meeting and food was the last thing I wanted to mess with.


My suggestion of running out and buying a few store bought trays of fruits along with bakery muffins, bagels and danish was quickly rebuffed and I was told that I that sounded great but it needed to be homemade. I stayed up until almost 3 in the morning baking and cutting fruit, laid down for a quick nap needing to get a little shut eye before taking my food and hitting the highway at 5 in the morning.

After that day I NEVER EVER let anyone else work out the catering for me! Now I’ve ordered catering from just about everywhere and for all sorts of people and guess what? Everybody loves pasta. I don’t know why, but it just is!


And with that in mind, I think that Buca di Beppo is the PERFECT place to get your guests’ grub on at the office or home holiday party. In fact, you can order Order Party Pans To Go online which is ridiculously convenient!

And here is my last reason why I am in love with catering from Buca di Beppo, they offer a good many Gluten Free dining options that they will turn into party pans for you! In a world with growing concerns and health issues with gluten (and a sufferer myself) I think this is beyond brilliant!

As someone who has been in charge of catering hundreds of events (and cooked a ton of holiday meals alone) believe me when I tell you, Buca di Beppo is the way to go!
