There are plenty of options to choose from, so make sure you tailor the food choice to your guests and the type of party you’re throwing. When planning an office event start by considering how many people will attend and what space you have available for your event. Once you have all this figured out, take a look at our top five food options below.
A 3-course dinner
The office Christmas party is a great opportunity to get all your team together for a meal and spend some time together, and although it’s probably not the first catering option that springs to mind, a 3-course dinner might just be the perfect Christmas meal for your employees.
Palm Greens offers three course dinner menus with an onsite chef. The dinner includes a starter, main course and dessert. Some of our favourites are the roast cauliflower with cascabel tahini, baked celeriac, sweet potato and miso glazed roast onion and pear tart with pear cream filling.
If you’re planning a more relaxed event, where everyone can come and go as they please, you can consider ordering sharing platters. They are perfect for an evening party, as well as Christmas-themed lunch or afternoon tea.
Cafe Route offers a Christmas sandwich platter that includes turkey and cranberry ciabatta, stuffing and hummus focaccia, brie and cranberry sandwiches and more! You can also find a Christmas lunchbox on their current offer providing a turkey or veggie festive salad, perfect as a special treat for your employees.
Whether you are renting a venue or using your office space, it’s always a good idea to have some simple snacks and finger food at the ready.
Pocket Rocket is a perfect choice for that occasion! The restaurant offers exquisite canapés and finger food. They arrive ready to serve in specially designed boxes with recyclable trays you can use to serve the food.
There are plenty of choices on their menu. Each box contains fish, meat and vegetarian options as well as cakes and sweet treats.
