Taking the Pressure Out of Parties


Disclaimer :: Jason’s Deli sponsored this post and provided an in-depth look at its new Catering for Entertaining service that provides gourmet dining options for hosted events from kids’ birthday parties to showers to dinner parties to tailgates.

You rush around your kitchen, pull another tray out of the oven, and madly dash to the counter. You painstakingly arrange the morsels on their awaiting platters. You wonder if you have enough ice — should you call someone to pick up a few bags on the way over? You need to get the plates and napkins set up in the other room. The doorbell rings. Did you remember to invite so-and-so’s friend? You greet your guests as a good hostess should, but a half dozen appetizers, drinks, and decorations still demand your attention.

Party Pressure

Does this scene seem familiar to you? My friend, you are not alone. We have all fallen prey to party pressure.

We strive to host the ideal party, chasing a vision of Pinterest-perfect spreads, themes, party favors, and the encompassing minutiae that turn into a host-trap. We fret over an endless lists of details that ultimately take us away from the most important element of the party: spending time with our guests and enjoying ourselves!

And that’s exactly where Jason’s Deli can step in and help.

What typically comes to mind when you think of Jason’s Deli? Signature sandwiches, fresh salad bar, generous portions of potatoes and pastas — we all have our favorites! They have loyally catered and delivered an assortment of trays, lunch boxes, and packages to our local offices, churches, hospitals, and schools. But Jason’s Deli saw a growing need for catering in the home and similar social situations.

Catering for Entertainment

Jason’s Deli has turned decades of hospitality, catering, and delivery into a new service: Catering for Entertaining.

Garden Party Package - Jason's Deli sponsored

And with school’s end and summer around the corner, the days will be awash in children’s birthdays and pool parties! The kids’ party package is sure to be a hit. It includes fun finger-sized sandwiches — ham and American cheese, roasted turkey and American cheese on country white and multi-grain wheat. It also comes with organic apple slices, baby carrots with house-made ranch, potato chips, and organic apple juice.
