Corporate Holiday Parties

Lavish corporate holiday parties that used to include grand ballrooms, open bars, live bands and sometimes over-the-top decoration, are no longer a financial possibility for many companies. Before eliminating these celebrations from fiscal budgets, we have seen many corporate holiday parties simply scaled down to a more reasonable expenditure. Believe it or not, many employees are pleasantly surprised to be invited to the boss’ own home for a less elaborate, more intimate celebration, while others host a luncheon in the conference room during regular business hours. Either way, whatever the budget, employees feel appreciated and are able to enjoy the company of their coworkers on a more casual and relaxed social level.

For several years running, our delivered food division, A Tray to Remember™ has offered packages that have successfully fit the needs of this type of in-home or in-office catering. Depending on your guest count, we offer packages that start at less than $15 per person. One of our holiday favorites…

We also offer amazing Hors D’Oeuvres and decadent Desserts that are sure to please even the most diverse and discerning group. If your group consists of “picky” eaters, we know “picky”. Consult with one of our knowledgeable Event Coordinators today for recommendations and proven solutions. Because our sales team actually enjoys interacting with customers, and have a special place in their hearts for food, you will find yourself in very capable hands.

If all of this seems a bit overwhelming, ask about our experienced personnel to come to your home or office, not only to receive the order upon delivery, but to heat if necessary, set your buffet, serve your guests, replenish menu items and clean up. If you require special linens, equipment or decoration, we can help with that as well. It’s your choice, you may simply place an order or you can choose to plan a more detailed event without breaking the bank.

During the Holiday Season, no matter what you are celebrating, no event is too small. The effort that goes into planning even the most basic celebration can prove to be the most sincere gesture.

Happy Holiday’s from all of us at Catering By Michael’s! We appreciate all of our clients business and look forward to being of service in 2011.
