Firstly, consider what kind of event you want to create. Will it be a sit-down meal, a casual cooking class or a stand-up affair with finger food? This will impact the style and quantity of food you serve. If you're holding your event in a conference room, a buffet with all the seasonal favourites is always a popular choice. If your event is in an open area where everyone will be standing, you might prefer bite-sized or finger food instead. Additionally, the overall layout of your office and the mood you want to create will determine your menu.
Once you've decided on the style of your event, it's time to think about the food. Consider the dietary requirements of your team and make sure there are options available for everyone. From festive morning teas to working lunches with seasonal flavours, Christmas finger food catering, and company BBQs, there are endless arrays of Christmas catering menus to suit all tastes and budgets.
One important aspect to keep in mind is the quantity of food. You want to make sure you order enough to keep everyone satisfied, but don't want to be stuck with too many leftovers. Make sure to consult with catering consultants who can help you ensure there is enough food and no one goes hungry.
It wouldn't be a Christmas party without drinks! Keep your colleagues jolly with festive mocktails and non-alcoholic drinks, like the Santa Claus Punch, blackcurrant cider sparklers, and cranberry-apple cider punch. And for your alcoholic needs, be sure to speak to the team at Otaokitchen. They have an enormous range of drinks that cater to all tastes and budgets.
Finally, lean on a catering expert to help make your Christmas function a success. With event planning and execution services, from the menu to staffing, equipment hire, and alcohol delivery, you can rest easy and join in the fun with your colleagues.
