Tips for Hosting a Christmas Lunch

It’s almost time for the bells to jingle. Is your Christmas catering under control?

The secret to a successful Christmas party is advance preparation of as many aspects as possible. Being organised will mean you have more quality time with your guests, and fewer worries or nasty surprises during the holiday season.

Tips for Making Your Christmas Lunch a Success

1. Go Online

Let your fingers do the walking and check out our prices online. Consider using a click-and-collect option or delivery. It saves time and effort for both party catering and corporate catering.

2. Make Finger Food

Finding the perfect meal for thirty people is harder than it sounds. A buffet-style lunch is easier to manage. Timing is not as crucial, and it’s simpler for guests to eat what they like on the menu.

If you opt for a sit-down meal, keep it simple. Quiet your inner Gordon Ramsey and stick to what you know how to make, or have the meal catered.

Make the food seasonal, too. Turkey, with all the trimmings, is a traditional option, but keep the soups and heavy sauces for Christmas in July instead.

3. Make a List and Check it Twice

Make a list of all the items that need preparation and create a schedule. Put the items that need the most cooking time in first and work from there.

4. Have Snacks on Hand

It is an excellent way to minimise your efforts. Choose a cheese platter or antipasto that can be whipped up in minutes. Snacks take the edge off the hunger if cooking takes longer than expected.

5. Don’t Leave Everything until the Last Minute

Even simple dishes take time when there’s a lot to do. Prepare as much as possible the day before.
