To ensure a memorable celebration, we have curated a list of catering ideas that align with the latest corporate party trends. Whether you’re organizing an in-office event, a leadership retreat, or a gala affair, we understand the importance of creating a memorable experience for your guests. From delectable bites to festive beverages, let’s explore how Blend Catering can make your corporate holiday party an unforgettable event.
Gourmet Small Plates
One trend we are seeing for corporate holiday parties is the shift towards gourmet small plates. Instead of traditional sit-down meals, consider offering an array of bite-sized delicacies that allow guests to mingle and sample a variety of flavors. From mini lobster rolls and truffled mac and cheese bites to elegant bruschetta and savory tartlets, these gourmet small plates will tantalize taste buds and encourage social interaction. Small plates encourage guest interaction, create memorable moments, and add a fun element to your event.
Festive Food Stations
Interactive food stations have become a favorite among corporate holiday parties. Create a festive atmosphere by incorporating themed food stations that reflect the holiday spirit. A hot chocolate bar may just set the mood. Picture this: a cozy station with different flavors like peppermint, salted caramel, and white chocolate and an array of toppings like marshmallows, whipped cream, crushed candy canes, and chocolate shavings for guests to customize their holiday treats.
Classic Carving Station
Grazing stations have become a go-to trend in the catering world, enticing guests with an abundant display of delectable bite-sized delights. Picture an artfully styled table adorned with an array of artisanal cheeses, cured meats, gourmet dips, crusty bread, and an assortment of delectable finger foods. A grazing station is a feast for the eyes and the taste buds, inviting guests to indulge in a variety of flavors and textures at their leisure.
End the evening on a sweet note with a visually stunning dessert display. You can offer your guests a mini dessert buffet with an assortment of bite-sized desserts such as miniature cupcakes, chocolate truffles, fruit tarts and/or gourmet cookies, creating a visually appealing and irresistible display. Or you can add an element of fun with an interactive dessert station like a build-your-own donut bar, where guests can choose their favorite toppings and glazes or a live crepe station where delicious crepes are made to order, filled with decadent fillings of choice. The sky is the limit!
