As the nights draw in, it’s that time of year again when companies start considering their end-of-year plans for staff and colleagues. Corporate Christmas parties are a fantastic way to celebrate the year’s achievements while rewarding your team for all their hard work.
However, while the festive season is a time for relaxation and merriment, planning the perfect party food can often be stressful, especially when it comes to the catering. From getting organised to hiring professional corporate caterers, here are some of our top tips.
Get organised early
The first step when planning hassle-free corporate Christmas party food is to get organised.
Set a date for your party and establish a clear budget, as this will guide your food choices and stop you overspending.
Establish a guest list well in advance, and gather information about dietary restrictions and preferences so you can plan a menu that accommodates everyone. Venue choice is also important, whether your party will be held in-house or at an external venue, impacting the food options available to you.
Avoid mediocre party food with exciting Christmas BBQs, hog roasts & turkey feasts
One of the key ingredients for a memorable corporate Christmas party is delicious food. Don’t settle for mediocre options. You can elevate your food game with customised menus, theatrical cooking and dishes that reflect the spirit of the season, combining tasty flavours and enticing presentations.
Christmas BBQs, hog roasts and festive menus are all great options for exciting and wholesome food. Consider incorporating interactive food stations where guests can build their own plates to add an element of fun, bringing people together over shared culinary experiences.
Create the right atmosphere
You can use food to create the right atmosphere at your Christmas party, especially if you’re planning a group feast for all to enjoy. Imagine professional chefs cooking up a storm that fires up all the senses, a banquet of slow-cooked meat with all the trimmings, and impressive desserts made with fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Whether it’s a sit-down meal, sharing platters or buffet, exciting cooking styles and delicious food presented beautifully is the best way to create a buzz at your party.
Hire professional corporate caterers
For the ultimate stress-free party planning experience, minimise hassle and ensure high-quality food by hiring professional corporate caterers. They can help you create memorable culinary experiences, having the knowledge and skills to craft a menu to suit your needs and impress guests.
They can also offer logistical support by liaising with your venue (if not in-house) and handing everything from the cooking set-up and food preparation to serving and clearing up, allowing you to let your hair down on the day or evening.
