Melbourne Cup Day Catering


Melbourne Cup Day is celebrated Australia wide with most stopping to watch the race and enjoy the party atmosphere it creates.
Every year we see more and more businesses stopping work to have a lunch celebration so staff can enjoy the race.
If you are planning an event, it is a great idea to approach suppliers early to ensure their availability.  Several venues may provide all the provisions required, however you may also need to hire equipment for the day.  

Understanding how many people may be attending is a great way to start planning.  From here you can finalise a location, organise your catering and beverages, hire tables, chairs, eskies.
Platters of anti-pesto and canapés are great options for smaller functions.  If you need to organise lunch for several hundred guests, a buffet can work really well.  This will allow large numbers to be catered in a short period of time and has the advantage of offering a range of food options.

Drinks are also important to consider, and if alcohol will be served.  A selection of soft drinks and water can be positioned as self service in ice buckets, with service staff to provide beer or wine if required.
Consider the space available to ensure guests have plenty of room while allowing assigned areas for food service and a drinks area.
Enjoy Melbourne Cup Day with your fellow staff to watch the race.
