Fun Ways to Cater A Corporate Party

Published December 11th, 2019 by Chef's Catering

Want to try something unique food-wise to spice up your next corporate event? These events are a great way to build unity among employees and to celebrate all the hard work you’ve done.

It can sometimes be a challenge to provide fresh new ideas for your catered corporate party. This is all the truer if it’s an annual event. You can feel like you need to one-up the previous years’ foods. But all that pressure can make you feel like you’ve lost your creative edge.

If that’s how you’re feeling, there’s no need to stress about it. You can consider a themed party to create a festive and fun atmosphere for all involved.

Let's look at some fun ways to cater a corporate party.


Supporting local farms while showing your employees your appreciation can be combined with this fantastic theme.

Seasonal dishes such as roasted eggplant, heirloom tomato salad and lemongrass chicken could be among the dishes served at your event.

Weather permitting, host your dinner party outside in a rural setting with walking trails or find a local winery as a venue.

Tailgate Party

Employees can dress in their favorite sports team gear while enjoying finger-licking-good baby back ribs and sliders.

Get ready for some fun competitive game talk while snacking on popcorn or a soft pretzel bar. You could even end the evening with a live band or fireworks.

Elegant Beach Theme

The temperature outside may still be freezing, but an elegant beach-themed corporate event will feel like a vacation.

Coconut-crusted shrimp and mango salsa or chilled scallop salad served in iced shells give a gourmet feel to your party. Candle-lit lanterns can add a relaxing glow with fresh flowers and seashells providing a touch of elegance. 

Carnival Day

You can bring some childhood nostalgia back by hosting a carnival-themed corporate party.

Yard games with prizes and a live band can provide entertainment while cotton candy and roasted maple almonds served in paper cones will satisfy the munchies. Large slices of watermelon and elephant ears with corn dogs and onion rings add extra fun to this party style too.

This can be a fun family day party for your employees if that's what you're after.

Healthy Breakfast

There isn't a rule that says a party has to start in the afternoon. Try hosting a breakfast party for something different.

If your employees enjoy a healthy lifestyle, add items to your menu like fresh-pressed juices, omelets and a DIY fruit, granola and yogurt bar.

Nearly everyone loves yummy cafe-style coffee or tea too. Offer a variety of cafe drinks that will appeal to all your guests.
