Top 5 Christmas Party Catering Ideas

With the festive season just around the corner, it’s definitely time to start thinking about planning your Christmas party. 

Who doesn’t love a good Christmas party? Party prep (and cleanup) on the other hand… less of a blast. Coming up with Christmas catering ideas that will please a plethora of fussy eaters and dietary requirements is not a simple job.

But, stress less, to help ease your burden, we’ve come up with the following list of our ‘Top 5 Christmas Catering Ideas’ that are guaranteed to impress.


Christmas Catering Idea 1: Backyard BBQ

One of the more casual options on our list, a backyard barbecue is the perfect laid-back way to celebrate Christmas.

In Queensland, we are blessed to have such beautiful summer weather during festive season, so why not take advantage of the weather with a backyard barbecue.

Serve guests a variety of grilled meats, yummy finger food and good times! Enjoy a relaxed outdoor event with grazing style menus and plenty of cold drinks, catered by Cuisine on Cue.


Christmas Catering Idea 2: Sit Down Dinner

It’s Christmas party season, so who doesn’t want to get dressed to the nines and sit and enjoy gourmet cuisine and French champagne?

Sit-down dinner parties are the more elegant and formal Christmas party option, so if your guests are older or more traditional, a sit-down dinner could be the better choice.

Choose a two-course or three-course menu from Cuisine on Cue’s extensive range of menu options and sit back, relax, and enjoy your Christmas party.  


Christmas Catering Idea 3: Delicious Desserts

If you feel like a sweet finisher for your Christmas party, we have a huge selection of sweet treats and delicious desserts for your Christmas dessert menu.

End your year on a high note with our chocolate coated espresso mousse served with raspberry dust, chocolate crumb, coulis and chantilly cream, or our white chocolate brûlée served with almond biscotti, berry salad and lemon balm. 


Christmas Catering Idea 4: Share Plates

Sharing is caring, right? When it comes to Christmas party food, share plates are the trendy new dish of the catering world, allowing guests to choose their portion size and sample a number of different dishes.

As an added bonus, rather than binding guests to a certain seating arrangement, shared plates invite strangers to bond over their dishes and move freely around the room.

Choose from our extensive list of share plate options and give your guests a Christmas party they will never forget.


Christmas Catering Idea 5: Cocktails and Canapés

Treat yo’self (and your friends) to a classy cocktail event for this year’s Christmas party.

Choose your location and allow Cuisine on Cue to serve your guests gourmet canapés and hand crafted cocktails. As a full service catering company, Cuisine on Cue can provide everything for your Christmas party – from styling, to personalised decorating, to entertainment, and all the other fine details that will make your Christmas party truly memorable.
