Christmas party caterers

Many people would love to throw a party at their office or home, but the amount of work involved often deters them. There are many things to consider, the number of guests your home or office can hold and how formal you want the occasion to be or how many drinks to provide. With so many decisions to make before you have even started, it is easy to see why people get daunted. When it comes to design, things get even more complex. Whatever look you choose, achieving it takes a lot of planning, shopping and hard work on the day.

More work less fun

That’s where The AC comes in; from as little as £1500 we can design a fabulously festive Christmas party for you and your guests. We design the menu, cook the food to perfection and serve it at your chosen venue, whether at home, work or in a hired space. We can also decorate the party area, create festive cocktails and serve them to thirsty guests. Finally and best of all, we clear everything away, leaving not a trace that the party or The AC were there. All you need to do it contact us to discuss your thoughts and requirements.

What style will you choose?

The style and feel of a party contribute hugely to its success, and it is often helpful to have the advice of experts on what will suit an event best. An elegant drinks party with a log fire burning and fairy lights twinkling is always a popular choice with happy, attentive staff offering cheerful guests Champagne and festive cocktails.

This style of party is perfect for any medium or large gathering. We regularly organise these for 100 – 1,000 people.

AC canapés are always seasonal, and at Christmas, guests always enjoy our festive canapé trays which can be designed specifically to fit a client’s theme. The presentation may be elegant, colourful, monochrome or even comic, but one thing is guaranteed; they are always stylish.

Bowl food parties

Clients often want to achieve a lively, yet elegant party, perhaps with Champagne, a few canapés and once everyone has warmed up, a chance to hit the dance floor. The problem often lies with the food. Feeding Christmas party goers is a necessity, but serving and eating plated food requires a lot of space as well as taking up precious dancing time. Here’s where bowl food fits in.

Bowl food is flavourful and filling, has international flavours, and guest can eat while standing using just a fork and in between dancing. Because most AC bowls are based around ever popular street foods it is easy for us to tailor the menu to suit the style of party. Canapé and bowl food parties work very well in private homes where space may be limited.

Christmas lunch or dinner

A traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings is always popular; guests can revel in the sights, smells and memories it conjures. Traditionally we enjoy serving on a stylish plate, with crisp linen tablecloths and napkins, accompanied by a delicious wine.

If location is everything, London is King, with many outstanding venues suitable for holding Christmas lunches, dinners and receptions and The AC is proud to have worked with most of them over the years. We love to help our clients select the perfect space for their festivities and can do so as soon as we know your thoughts and budget.

So, why not contact us now to discuss the venue, decor and Christmas party catering.
