No summer party is complete without a range of sweet and savoury bites for your colleagues to nibble on.
Perfect for when you've got a large team with multiple different diets and allergies, ordering canapés for your office summer party is a bit of a no-brainer. And if you want a set of canapés you're going to love, look no further than Buchanan's Cheesemonger, with their big cheeseboards sure to be an ever bigger hit with your team.
Bowls of food aren't exactly a new trend, or a unique one at that. But boy are they good for your summer party.
The ideal kind of lunch for getting your team around a table enjoying food, we feature hundreds of restaurants that can deliver bowl food to your office. From Karma Cans to Itsu, whatever you fancy, we've got you covered. And if you really want some different? Bring the bold flavours, vibrant spices and fiery Indian flair of Rola Wala's rice bowls into your office. You won't regret it.
Keep it casual
For a summer party that ticks all the boxes, we recommend avoiding formal catering styles. Not only will it be a bigger drain on your finances, but your office party or team lunch will probably suit a more informal tone.
Take it from us - leave the cutlery or the sit-down dinner and let your team get their hands dirty for your summer party. We guarantee it’ll leave everybody happy - especially when you order doughnuts from Dude's Doughnuts. That's sure to be a winner.
Order for your team's diets and allergies
We know one of the hardest things to get right is the food. No-one wants to go hungry at the summer office party, and with a raft of dietaries it’s easy to have things slip through.
But with over 400 of London and Manchester's best restaurants, caterers and street vendors on the City Pantry platform, plus dedicated account managers here to help you tailor everything around your team's dietary requirements, we've got your office party catering covered.
