Christmas Party Catering

Countdown to the Christmas Party
Of all events none is more arduous or difficult to plan than the company Christmas party or “Holiday” party. Bringing together an eclectic group of individuals with different lifestyles, interests and social tastes with the ambitious goal of everyone having a terrific time is challenging to say the least. Many people consider spending an evening socializing with their boss and coworkers stressful, or worse, torture. How ironic given that the main objective of the party is to show appreciation and reward employees for a job well done.
Louis Gervais’ provides professional Christmas party catering services to help you make the most of your holiday event. Finding the right model or format for the evening that encourages mingling but doesn’t force anyone to spend long periods of time making awkward small talk is one step to planning a successful office party. Our Christmas party caterers will work with you to create an unforgettable experience for everyone.
Cocktail Party Catering
Cocktail receptions rather than formal sit-down dinners are a great option. The atmosphere is more relaxed and provides greater opportunity to circulate and mingle. In addition, there is greater flexibility in selecting a venue because you need less space than you would for a sit-down dinner. This model also avoids having to create seating charts and dealing with disgruntled employees complaining about their table placement.
The other way to impress guests and encourage interaction is, of course, fabulous food. Food provides inspiration and nurtures conversation. What better way to get a party going! A generous selection of amuse bouche paired with some self-serve platters, or a variety food stations scattered around the room offering a range of culinary options from Italian to Mexican or Thai, thin-crust gourmet pizza or tacos – it is a great way to generate excitement and keep people circulating and chatting.
A couple of Louis’ favourite amuse bouche for the holiday season include:
Beet dice, a cube of golden beet stuffed with goat cheese and dipped in scarlet beet juice, these stunning morsels are beautiful and delicious.
Mini Sunday Roast, a petit Yorkshire pudding filled with shaved roast sirloin or roast turkey and rich demi glace. Definitely a fail proof bite-sized crowd pleaser.
