What would the holiday season be without lots of parties? We know that this year will be no different so Mission Restaurant Supply would like to offer you a quick guide to simple holiday catering. We’ve put together a list of “Mission Must-Haves” that will make your party stress-free and tons of fun! An absolute necessity for every holiday party is a chafing dish. One problem that a lot of hosts encounter is not having adequate space for the food they’re serving and not having a way to keep it hot and fresh. Our 8 quart economy chafing dish, manufactured by Browne-Halco, is an excellent choice for the home chef. Want something a little fancier? We’ve got you covered. Our 6 quart oval chafing dish with gold accents is perfect for catered holiday events. Toss in a few Sterno chafer fuels and some of our stainless steel serving utensils and you’re set to go! For drinks, we recommend icing down all of your wine, water, and other beverages in one of our elegant stainless steel party tubs. Making sure your beverages are chilled and accessible for all of your party guests is crucial. You guests will be happy and you’ll be free to mingle and enjoy the soiree. You might also like our crystal punch bowls, which are perfect for serving up rum punch, egg nog, and other holiday favorites! One of our favorite holiday treats is the chocolate fountain! They are the perfect way to liven up your buffet line or private party. And what better excuse to eat tons of chocolate than at a party? Don’t think we’ve forgotten about the most essential holiday items you’ll need. That’s right — disposables. If you plan on keeping your party simple and low maintenance, we have just the thing. We now stock a huge assortment of disposables, from plates and bowls to flatware and glassware. We even have wine and dessert glasses! Did we miss something? Tell us!
