    Catering for a Baby Shower

    I am throwing a baby shower for my sister and was thinking of doing a tea party theme.� Can anyone recommend a good caterer for this in the Dunstable/Nashua/Chelmsford area?� Or, maybe just a good caterer (it doesn't have to be for a tea party).Thanks!

    I can't think of a caterer but you could try cross posting this on the parents boards or the wedding boards as an OT (off topic) in the vendors section for weddings.� I know the wedding boards are very active and there are a lot of cross posts there because they are active and you can genenerally get good results.� And it seems that many of wedding board posters are migrating to the parents boards....I wonder why?

    Good luck and I am sorry I cannot recommend a caterer for you.

    Catering for a Baby Shower

    Hi eflynn, I know you are asking for a caterer for your tea-shower, andunfortunately, I am not in a position to recommend one for you.
    However, I had a teaparty at home for about 60 people. With a bit ofhelp on the day of, I did it all by myself. Just started early. Bakedseveral cakes, which I froze. Made large platters of 3 different teasandwiches the day before and wrapped them and placed them in largecoolers. Made a large bowl of cut up fruit in the morning of andplaced in my ref.
    The day of I made tea in my large 50 cup coffee pot and served it inseveral (some borrowed) teapots. I� rented cups and plates and hadtables and chairs set up outside on my lawn.
    I had a couple of highschool girls help me the day of to set upand to serve. Everything went exceptionally well. And it was quiteinexpensive.
    Why did I do it? Money was not an issue, but I couldn't find a caterer.And I found it quite easy. Except for the tea, nothing has to be warmat a teaparty. Would I do it again. Definitely.
    Good luck!

    With all your cousins'� help - I am sure you will do just fine. It is not really necessary to rent cups and plates, if you don' t mind styrofoam or paper. But I did it to be a bit more formal. Good luck and happy showering!

    See, flynn, lot of help - not only from your cousins - but from thisboard as well. Tea parties are really easy.� Best of luck!

    Note: Just remembered. Once I went to a tea party, where the tea potsjust had hot water and a lots of different tea bags were served�in a small basket. One could choose the flavor or kind of tea oneliked.
