‘Tis the season to be jolly…well not quite yet, but it is time to start thinking about your business’ Christmas party. If you’re tired of the same old office potluck and want to elevate your company’s festive gathering this year, then look no further. Food Champs offer a 5-star catering service that will make your seasonal celebrations the talk of the water cooler for years to come! Here are our top tips for planning an office party to remember.

1. Leave The Cooking To The Professionals

Planning a Christmas event can feel like herding reindeer. When you outsource the catering, you significantly reduce your stress levels and ensure that your festive spread caters for everyone. Food Champs offer corporate event catering and a highly sought-after private chef service. Our team takes care of everything from menu creation to setup and cleanup, so you can concentrate on enjoying the holiday happiness.

2. Timing Is Everything

Timing is an essential element of event planning. Firstly, consider which day to hold your Christmas party. If you plan mid-week, you run the risk of a few ‘sick days’ being called in the following morning, but weekends are often taken up by other commitments, particularly in the lead up to Christmas. By floating some suggested dates now, you’ll maximise your guestlist. Once you’ve settled on a date, book your caterer! Food Champs offer premier catering in the Midlands and beyond and, naturally, our services get booked up early. The tail-end of summer may seem too early to book your Christmas catering but trust us, it’s not!

3. Christmas Is All About Food

A survey carried out by health provider Bupa used responses from over 2000 people to determine the top 25 things about Christmas. It’s no surprise that turkey, pigs in blankets, mince pies and chocolate all featured inside the top 10. Food is an integral part of festive events. Our skilled and experienced chefs will tailor the menu to suit your Christmas party, be that an intimate sit-down meal or a lavish buffet. Your employees will be snapping photos of the festive feast faster than you can say, ‘Ho, ho, ho!’.

4. Cater For All Dietary Requirements

To ensure that your menu is inclusive without compromising on taste, ask your guests to list any dietary restrictions or allergies when they RSVP to your Christmas party and trust Food Champs with your event catering. With an accurate list of dietary requirements ahead of time, we will ensure that your guest’s needs are not only met but exceeded. Our chefs have created exceptional plant-based dishes, gluten-free options and dairy-free alternatives that even Rudolph would trade his carrot for!

5. Make Sure The Bar Is Well Staffed

Food Champs provide chefs and waiting staff for larger events. This covers the drink service as well as the food, guaranteeing a smooth service. No more juggling appetisers and trays of bubbly – our team will make certain that every guest has a drink and access to food so that you don’t have to lift a finger. Whether it’s a flute of champagne or a frosty mocktail, our waiting staff will ensure the Christmas spirit is in full flow!
