Catering Tips For Christmas Day In Brisbane

It’s hard to believe, but another year has almost come and gone. The sleigh bells are ringing and Christmas is around the corner.

While it can be easy to think ‘Oh I still have heaps of time to organise everything, lots of Christmas catering and other preparations require you to book far in advance due to supply and demand.

This year, interstate borders will be open too so caterers and associated services will be very busy!

Here are our top tips for ensuring your Christmas celebrations succeed and leave everyone feeling particularly festive and full this year, regardless of whether it’s for work or a special event.

Make sure your guests are happy.

Of course, you want your guests to be happy but we get it…sometimes organising a party can be so overwhelming that you lose sight of the original goal: fostering an atmosphere that allows everyone to relax and celebrate.

There are a couple of important things you might want to keep in mind, including:

  • Dietary Requirements: Are there any vegans or vegetarians? Celiacs? People with lactose intolerance? It’s important that you ask these questions before the event so it runs smoothly without any complaints. In today’s world, it’s quite easy to accommodate even the bizarre dietary restrictions, you just need to know in advance.
  • Buffet?: If you’re planning on providing a buffet for your guests, ensure you have both hot and cold options available for their enjoyment. Also consider a mix of all the food textures: creamy, crisp, crunchy, light and dense.
  • Better to be safe than sorry: Wondering if you’ll have enough food and drinks? It’s always better to round up than down when it comes to planning, budgeting and ordering. Have you ever left a party hungry when you had planned to eat there? Not a good feeling at all. Let’s make sure your party isn’t remembered for that reason.

Have a contingency plan.

Fingers crossed it doesn’t, but do you have a plan if everything goes wrong? Will you cope? Will everything go down the drain including the Christmas party itself?

We want to avoid this.

If you want to ensure your party plan is infallible, make sure you have answers to these questions:

  • ‘What will I do if my vehicle breaks down?’
  • ‘What will I do if a food/drinks order is late?’
  • ‘Will the party be able to go ahead if it rains?

Minimize Stress.

It can be easy to forget that Christmas is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year. Whether you’re responsible for feeding family and friends or you have been tasked with organising the work Christmas party, the best thing you can do to ensure everything goes smoothly is to minimize stress where you can.

An easy way to have one less thing on your plate is to hire a mobile cool room or refrigerated vehicle for the big day.
