Corporate Event Menu Ideas


If you're in charge of planning the menu for a corporate event, you most like want to impress your colleagues with delicious food and drinks. While you may want to treat your guests to gourmet treats, you may be restricted by an event budget.

The good news is that you can still provide mouthwatering, professionally catered food while staying within your allotted amount. Whether you're in charge of feeding co-workers, business partners, prospective clients, or community leaders, you can design a menu to please everyone's tastes.

When putting together a corporate event menu, it's important to consider any dietary restrictions, allergies or preferences the attendees may have. Provide a wide range of food and beverage items to accommodate everyone on your guest list. You may even want to include a small questionnaire on the invitations to assist you in the food-planning process. 

Here are some corporate catering ideas to get you started:

Appetizers

1. Sliders

Sliders will work well for both casual events and elegant affairs, as you can easily customize them. Provide a few different slider options, including a vegetarian selection featuring just sliced cheese and vegetables. 

If you want to give the mini sandwiches an elegant touch, include gourmet ingredients such as Brie, caramelized onions, and prosciutto. Arrange the small bites on a silver tray for an attractive presentation, and include typical condiments such as mayonnaise, mustard, and pickles.

2. Skewers

Not only are skewers tasty and easy to customize, attendees can easily enjoy them as they mix and mingle. There are a variety of skewer combinations to choose from, such as grilled shrimp and pineapple for a beach-inspired theme, or cheese and grapes for a wine-themed soiree. 

Main Courses

1, Lasagna 

If you want to serve your guests family-style, consider large pans of lasagna, manicotti, or a combination of both. Mix it up with traditional meat and vegetarian options. Ask the caterer to substitute the Italian sausage with flavorful ingredients such as roasted eggplant or zucchini. Serve the homestyle Italian favorites with green salads as a fresh touch.

2. Taco Bar

Another way to please your attendees is by setting up a self-serve taco bar. Provide a varied selection, such as hard and soft taco shells, as well as crispy tortilla bowls for making salads.

Include all of the basics, such as seasoned ground beef, refried beans, and shredded lettuce, as well as some creative ingredients, so that event attendees can easily customize their own plates. Contact local corporate catering services for more information and assistance.

Tips for Planning Unique Events

When I was growing up, my mother loved planning parties and events. When she didn't have an event of her own to plan, she was always willing to lend a helping hand to any friend of hers or family member who needed a little help planning theirs. She had a knack for making events unique, and everyone who attended the events she helped plan made remarks about how unique they were. She included unusual foods in the buffet lineup and always adorned the party venues with unique decor. Now that she is older, I have taken over as the family event planner and love every minute of it. I have many event planning tips to share with others, so I decided to create my own blog to share them on!
