With the 30th of June just around the corner, now is the time to start planning your End of Financial Year (EOFY) celebration. In the first of a series of blogs, we have curated a range of EOFY party ideas and experiences to help take the stress out of planning your last minute EOFY celebrations and have the team excited for tax time. Contact us today to book in your celebration.

Vintage Glam

Take the team back in time to the Golden Era of 1930’s vintage glamour at Baedeker Wine Bar in the heart of Fortitude Valley. What was once an old flour mill, Baedeker is now an eclectic and multi-faceted event space that can facilitate a multitude of functions. Dazzle them with a night under the stars in the Champagne Garden, complete with a glass of the Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve on arrival and our signature canapes. Try the decadent Fiumara Cigar; a flaky filo pastry filled with goats cheese parfait and citrus cream or the crowd pleasing Seared scallop with chorizo crumble and sweet corn reduction.

If you are chasing a warmer and more intimate atmosphere, The Cellar is not to be missed. Dine with up to 18 guests at the hand carved table made from repurposed Australian native timbers and sit in the comfort of the luxurious plush leather chairs. Step through a revolving bookshelf to enter this exclusive vintage room.

Serve your guests a three course menu with cleanser sure to excite their taste buds.

To Start

Artisan bread with butter rounds

Entrée

Warm quail salad, elderflower sponge, corn mousse

Cleanser

Guava, prosecco sorbet

Main

Beef tenderloin, osso bucco tortellini, sweet potato mash, brandy cream sauce

Dessert

Coral sponge, pistachio crème, white chocolate rope, ginger meringue

Go one step further with paired wines from the in-house sommelier.

Keep your team on the edge of their seats and treat them to tickets to a night of Cluedo this April and May at Baedeker. The classic board game comes to life in an interactive experience that is full of melodramatic twists and scandalous revelations. Enjoy a selection of substantial canapes and a glass of wine on arrival, set to the tunes of live jazz music at Dr Black’s famous soiree. It is an experience to die for! Book here.

INSTAWORTHY

Oh snap! If your team spends more time on the gram than they do in their emails, then having an EOFY party that is #instagoals is sure to make everyone happy (except maybe the boss). With its convenient South Brisbane location and dreamy black and white interior, Jo-Jo’s is the perfect blank canvas for you to create a sumptuous banquet, elegant soiree or an upbeat cocktail party.

No Instaworthy party is complete without a menu that is sure to get your guests snapping away. For the ultimate #foodstagram we recommend our Grazing Station which includes a wide selection of cured meats, Mediterranean style marinated vegetables, assorted breads, crackers, premium cheeses, muscatels, dried figs, grapes, quince paste and roasted nuts to impress any Insta-foodie.

Take your grazing station to the next level by upgrading to add a selection of cold canapes and station facades to add that extra touch. And if that isn’t enough, add our new colour changing martini. Your guests will be mesmerized by the magic as it transforms from a deep indigo to a beautiful lavender.
