Celebrating Christmas with a Mini Buffet Catering in Singapore
It’s the season to be jolly, falalala lalalala~ Christmas is coming but due to the new norm, we can only have a mini festive celebration to mark the year-end holidays and new year as the daily number of COVID-19 cases in Singapore continue to remain above the 1,000 mark.
While the current situation may dampen your holiday spirits, it doesn’t have to be that way because you can organise a mini buffet catering for your family and/or friends at home to celebrate the festive season without risking everyone’s exposure to the virus.
More so if you want to host a small gathering at home but dislike the idea of having to deal with the mountain of dishes that comes with cooking up a feast for your guests. As such, opting for a food catering service is your best solution.
Let’s take a look at why you should have a mini buffet catering for your Christmas gathering along with some of the food catering menu ideas you can opt to have in your mini buffet, including Chilli Manis’ 2021 Christmas Menu.
Benefits of Having a Mini Buffet Catering
No small gathering is complete without a mini buffet catering, especially during this Christmas season. Here’s why you should opt for a mini buffet catering:
1. Buffet-style catering can save cost
Good food typically cost more than the average price. More so for the ones served in individual packaging because a portion of what you’re paying goes to the packaging such as containers and plastic wraps. Also, some caterers tend to include the amount of labour that goes into preparing individually-packed meals.
A mini buffet with food catering, on the other hand, is more cost-savvy when compared to plated, family-style, and station meal options. The food catering service can be packed a dish into one or two packaging, which reduces the use of numerous food packaging. You only need to serve them according to your liking.
2. You or your guests get to be picky
When it comes to food, everyone has the tendency to be picky about their food, including the elderly and grown adults like us. For instance, you have elderly parents who tend to be picky about their vegetables while your children may be picky about having some of the dishes being put on their plate.
Instead of having to fulfil everyone’s food palate, a mini buffet catering with some changes to the dishes will surely be a delightful experience. After all, your guests get to choose which dish they want to eat and will be glad that they’re given the freedom to do so.
3. You or your guests can have seconds
Different from plated, family-style, and station meal options, having a mini buffet catering for your Christmas gathering allows your guests to have seconds. This is because some caterers tend to provide extra food in case your guests show up at the last minute.
Even if some of your guests fail to show up, you and your other guests get to have multiple stomach-filling meals during your gathering. And at the end of the day, you and your guests will remember it as an eventful experience amid this pandemic.
