End of Financial Year (EOFY) can be stressful enough without the added pressure of organising a celebration on top of it. But that doesn’t mean your team has to miss out on the fun. If you are looking to keep it simple, but still deliciously enjoyable, in our final EOFY blog (see part 1 and part 2) we have five tips for hosting an in office EOFY celebration that won’t make your team feel like they are missing out.
1. Start the weekend early
Start the weekend early and host your EOFY celebration on a Friday afternoon from 3pm. Kick back with a range of delicious canapes and grazing station, complete with a glass of red wine or sparkling. Or if you are looking for a no-fuss Friday afternoon, our Express Catering service offers free delivery to Brisbane CBD and has a range of delicious grazing boards and platters dropped to your door in eco friendly bark boxes or upgrade to have delivered on our range of platter boards.
2. Tailor your theme to your team
Themed celebrations are renowned for inducing a few eye rolls especially when it is a theme that is overdone like Gatsby or 80’s. Is there a mutual love that drives your team together? Perhaps it is discussing the latest episode of Game of Thrones or an acquired taste for Baby Metal music? Whatever the interest may be, work it into your EOFY celebration theme. Nothing quite brings a team together like bonding over a common interest.
3. Make it memorable with food
Food is often a great conversation starter and we can promise our menus will have your guests talking. Whether it is a grazing table, food stations, formal dining or cocktail – we bring colour, creativity and quality to every plate. Our menus follow the seasons, collating the freshest ingredients found locally in Brisbane and surrounds. Our food celebrates all that is fresh and contemporary.
4. Get creative with your space
Hosting your EOFY celebration in the lunch room may not inspire your inner interior decorator, which is why we recommend the styling services of AVIdeas, Hampton Hire or The Perfect Party Co to transform your space.
5. Celebrate with signature cocktails
Pop the champagne and celebrate in style. Shake (or stir) up your beverages with a signature cocktail in addition to the beer and wine offering. Try the WNDM margarita, a cocktail with butterfly pea syrup that transforms from blue to pink or stick to the classics like Mimosas or Espresso Martinis. Or if you are looking for something to keep you warm during the winter months, enquire about adding mulled wine to your beverage menu.
