Planning a fabulous winter party? Cozy up to friends and family around classic festive foods and a few new favorites from your local caterers!
Get your party started with tantalizing finger foods. A cranberry and brie roll beautifully wrapped in phyllo makes for an amazing pastry alongside figs in a blanket and Swedish meatballs. Prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, mushroom tarts, and quiche bites are also popular holiday treats to kick off your party. Fruit salad, ambrosia, and confetti cole slaw are staples for every unforgettable get-together.
Savory Soups and Sides
Nothing warms the soul like a hearty bowl of soup next to the fire. Ask your catering service about seasonal favorites like winter vegetable, minestrone, and lamb barley. Italian sausage with tortellini and butternut squash with curry are traditional dishes making a comeback this year along with New England clam chowder and home-style beef stew. Don’t forget the mandarin orange chicken salad with honey-lime dressing or the blue cheese wedge with diced tomato and bacon crumbs. Candied yams, garlic mashed potatoes, and stuffing are more must-haves for your holiday event.
There are so many options your local caterers have to offer. Ring in the holiday with all the classics. Traditional ham and stuffed turkey are always in season but why not add a twist with unique flavors that are sure to spoil your guest? For the favorites bringing everyone to the table, try chicken breast topped with a savory mango chutney and stuffed with wild rice, pecans, grapes, and apricots. Roast lamb with mint sauce goes great alongside dill potato salad and green bean vinaigrette. Really treat your guest with gourmet style beef Wellington or tenderloin with roasted garlic cream sauce. For a portable feast, a spread of cold cuts including slow-smoked turkey and Bavarian ham are perfect additions to your event. Guests can create their own sandwiches or wraps with all their favorite toppings.
You can’t pass up these classic decadent desserts like chocolate-covered strawberries, white chocolate macadamia cookies, and pumpkin cheesecake. Ask your catering service about seasonal treats like hot chocolate, apple crumble, and toffee pudding. New favorites like white chocolate mousse and espresso brownies are sure to keep the party going. Before your guests brave the winter evening, don’t forget the late-night coffee with seasonal creams like peppermint and pumpkin spice to keep them warm on the way home.
With so many options for your holiday party, it is sure to be the event of the year. Make it perfect and stress-free with the help of your favorite catering service delivering to your door or venue. Ask your guests for some of their holiday favorites and make everyone will feel warm and welcome.
