This Autumn, we want to gift you the ultimate guide of party plan ideas on how to start party planning for EOFY celebrations. For a luxurious way to finish off the financial year, we recommend an Autumn themed party – – complete with warm finger-food as well as sweet snacks and maybe even a bottle of sparkling to celebrate. With cooler weather well on it’s way, we know you’re going to need some winter warmers by the time EOFY rolls around, but The Catering Project also has a wide variety of other hot food to keep everyone satisfied. When you finish reading this guide, you’ll know exactly how to plan a party that keeps those hungry mouths happy this Autumn-themed party season. And if you don’t, well…feel free to give us a call or flick an email our way!

The Food

Autumn is all about the change of season, so you want to make sure you have a mix of super fresh, colourful, and healthy finger-food, warm, savoury pastries, as well as naughty little treats to keep the sweet-tooth in the crowd sated. Depending on how big your office, picnic, or family gathering is, will determine how much food you’ll need. The Catering Project’s range of different sized collections makes this process easy-peasy! Our brand new Salad Roll Collections will brighten your office, and our Sweet Collections and Finger Food and Bites Collections will lighten everyone’s mood. It’s also always a good party plan idea to take into account whether alcohol will be involved.

The Booze

Its EOFY – you’re welcoming in a new-year of financial success! Tax returns are always a cause for celebration (although, not cause for gift-giving…) and what better way to introduce your new party-panning skills than to spoil everyone with a bottle of bubbles. At an Autumn themed party, you always want a little bit of booze to keep everyone warm. Whether it’s red, white, rosé, organic, sparkling, beer, or cider, The Catering Project has you covered, and will even deliver it to your door!

The People

A key element in how to start party planning is to know how many people will, in fact, be partying, and how big your venue is. Sometimes organising people’s dietary requirements is a challenge – but as one of Sydney’s leading caterers, The Catering Project has created whole ranges of food to fit everyone’s diet. Good party plan ideas should involve writing down all guests’ dietary requirements, and keeping that in mind when ordering your food. We can cater to vegan, vegetarian, coeliac, gluten-intolerant, and dairy-free people with ease.

The Decorations

We also give you the option to hire equipment and disposables if need be. Your autumn themed party does’t have to be ‘fall colours’ and dead leaves scattered awkwardly in the office. The key of how to start party planning is knowing your aesthetic, and making sure all your decorations reflect that. With The Catering Project’s help, there’s no reason why you can’t have a beautiful autumn themed party in your office this EOFY season.
