Planning a Holiday Party with Caterers in London
The clocks have gone back, the nights are colder and darker, and Christmas is approaching scarily fast. The festive period can be pretty hectic, but it’s essential to make sure you have plenty of fun during the chilly, gloomy season. Your calendar can start getting booked up pretty quickly, with work parties, friends planning outings, and maybe things to do with your kids too. When you’re not going to a pantomime or your office Christmas lunch, your own winter event could be a light in the darkness and keep you busy. There are some fun ideas you could use if you want to enlist caterers in London to plan an exciting party.
An American Thanksgiving
There are hundreds of thousands of our cousins from across the pond who have chosen to relocate to the UK, with many of them living in London. If you’re American yourself or you want to make sure someone you know feels right at home in our great capital, a Thanksgiving event is an awesome idea. It’s like getting to have a Christmas dinner a month before Christmas! There are plenty of restaurants across the city that serve Thanksgiving dinner, but for a truly special event, hiring caterers in London to help you put on something unique is ideal. Perhaps you have some family to celebrate with or an American client to impress.
Corporate Christmas Parties
The work Christmas party is something you either love or hate. If it’s your job to organise it, it’s up to you to make sure it’s an event that everyone loves. Fun Christmas parties are a great perk for employees and a chance for everyone to let their hair down. You might also consider a Christmas event for clients and contacts to show them you appreciate them. Your party could feature anything from a three-course dinner to a casual buffet. Some people enjoy a Christmas-style dinner, complete with turkey, even if it’s not Christmas yet. Other events are more suited to some seasonal canapés and snacks.
Throw a New Year’s Bash
New Year’s Eve is a fantastic time to spend with both friends and family as you welcome in a new year. Whether you want to get your colleagues together, have a family bash, or put on hogmanay celebrations for your friends, getting in last-minute plans isn’t always easy. There’s a lot you could do for NYE, from canapés and Champagne to a full meal, plus plenty of music and dancing or maybe some games and other fun activities.
Valentine’s Day is a little further away from other winter festivities, but it’s still an occasion that deserves acknowledgement. It might be a time when people want to spend the day with their loved ones, but it could be a fun occasion for a party too. With the right venue and caterers in London, you could put on an event for couples or single people that’s brimming with love. It could be a romantic dinner, a social speed-dating event, or even a lonely-hearts disco.
If you’re throwing a seasonal event, you should have a seasonal menu. Caiger & Co can design a menu for your event that makes the most of delicious seasonal ingredients.
