Pop-ups are something special
The perfect option if you’ve got some outdoor space, or a big indoor venue, with City Pantry customising everything to your needs. Get people involved with choosing their party food, whether it’s hand-rolled sushi from The Sushi Chef, build-your-own tacos from Benito’s Hat, or an ice-cream made in front of their eyes on frozen pans from Pan ’n’ Ice. Pop-ups often allow for bespoke flexibility, customisable to your London team’s unique needs.
Don’t skip dessert
A range of sweet and savoury options lets people nibble as they choose: the office party is one of those times when eating brownies and ice-cream for dinner is beyond acceptable. Mix it up: a huge cheeseboard from Buchanan’s Cheesemonger is an easy, sophisticated win.
Bowl food is In
If it’s good enough for Meghan and Harry, it’s good enough for your office food. To be clear: putting food in a bowl and serving it is neither new, nor a trend, nor unique. But it is cool right now. Why? We don’t know. But get behind it and your teammates will appreciate it. They’ll probably Instagram it too.
