Written by Bella Jolly, Wed 27 September 2023
Looking for some fresh inspiration for your Christmas party catering? Our team have planned a fair few Christmas parties in their time and we’ve got food options up our sleeve whether you’re looking for a sit-down dinner, festive canapés, or festive twists on street food classics. Read on for our top Christmas party food ideas for 2023.
A classic festive feast
Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a turkey. If you’re looking to create a classic Christmas experience for your team, many of the caterers on our books will come to your office. Looking to go all out and put the cherry on top of a fantastic year for your team? Citreus Catering offer a Beef Wellington over the festive season that is sure to impress.
Turkey - BBQ style
If you’re looking for a more casual take on a Christmas dinner, BBQ maestros Meat Street BBQ are turning their attention to turkey this festive season. They’ll be offering a 24-hour brined, smoked and butter basted turkey - paired with classic American style side dishes, it makes a perfect compromise between classic and untraditional.
Street food based options are becoming ever more popular with businesses when it comes to planning their Christmas party food. It’s quicker to get out, more customisable for your team’s dietary needs, looks great on Instagram, and of course hits the spot.
Many of our suppliers are offering festive takes on a classic loaded fries. Fancy Fries’ festive offering is topped with turkey, pigs in blankets, and stuffing, while Summit Tasty even have a vegan option with their fries topped with jackfruit “turkey,” toasted seed stuffing, cranberry sauce and crispy “facon” bits.
The good thing about small and street food businesses is that they are able to be creative and really have some fun when it comes to Christmas food ideas. Vietnamese street food truck Lo Viet will be knocking out pork belly and cranberry spring rolls that you won’t want to miss, and roast chicken banh mi in their hand-rolled homemade baguettes.
Okay, so it’s not strictly Christmas party food ideas, but what’s a party without a cocktail or two? While you can’t go too far wrong with the classics, a Christmas party is a great excuse to indulge in some festive specials. Albert & Charlie’s mobile bar have some delicious additions to their Christmas menu: think white chocolate martinis, Brandy Sour, and a Christmas mojito.
