Catering Ideas for Winter Parties

Catering Ideas for Winter Parties

The season of winter probably makes you think of rain, football and creating memories with your loved ones. The cold weather often puts us in the mood for cuddling up inside with warm food and drink. But, if you have to host a party, it can be daunting to think about the large amounts of appetisers, snacks, and desserts from which you can pick your menu. 

If you’re hosting a winter party in Australia, look no further than Pinjarra Bakery to help with your winter party catering in Perth. We have the perfect ideas to make your winter party a hit among family and friends.

1) Pies

Pies are great for any kind of weather, but an especially delicious warm pie from Pinjarra Bakery is perfect for a winter party, whether you choose a savory variety, a sweet variety, or both! 

For an entrée, a savory pie like the steak and gravy or honey chilli chicken is great. Topping it off with an apple pie dessert can truly elevate your party above the rest.

2) Finger foods

Pinjarra Bakery also specialises in finger food catering in Perth. Finger food is very convenient, cheap, easy, and less messy than having full-sized entrees for your winter party. 

You can get snacks like sliders, onion rings, or pizza rolls, or even have finger food desserts like tarts and tiramisu to keep your party guests happy and satisfied. 

If you have an idea for a bigger entrée, but don’t want to spend money on the utensils, finding a mini version of the same food often works just as well as the actual version!

3) Hot Drinks

No winter party is complete without a hot drink to go with great food. Winter staples include mulled wine, but not everyone is partial to that drink. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic mulled wine options exist for any kind of party.

A more universally accepted option is hot chocolate, and you can even include marshmallows for people to place in their mugs. For a winter shindig earlier in the morning or in the afternoon, serving coffee is also a great idea to keep everyone awake and excited for party games and events. 

4) Pumpkin and Cinnamon Flavourings

If anything you think of for your party doesn’t feel like it fits a winter theme, think about the different kinds of spices and flavours that are popular in the winter. You can put pumpkin flavour in just about any of the ideas, like pumpkin pie or pumpkin-flavoured coffee.

Cinnamon is also great for dessert options and can be used in hot chocolate, coffee, pies, cookies, brownies, or cakes. Keeping a shaker of cinnamon on the buffet table is also good for anyone who would like to add the flavour of their own accord.
