Sandwich Catering with a difference

Sandwich Catering is the staple of every corporate meeting. Sandwiches cater easily to a wide audience. Not to mention they are filling and cost effective. So why settle for anything but the best.

So how do you supply Sandwich Catering for your executives and still keep it interesting?

Flavours Catering & Events are widely considered to be one of Sydneys leaders when it comes to Sandwich Catering. We have a wide range of options to choose from, plus we rotate our fillings regularly to ensure variety.

Your Sandwich Catering options start with your basic Triangle Point Sandwich. Most suited to either a tight budget or a self conscious group, the Triangle Point is easy to eat without making a mess.
Similar to the Triangle Point Sandwich is the Finger Sandwich, a crustless finger of fresh fluffy sliced bread, with a selection of fillings including the traditional favourite egg & mayo. The Finger Sandwich is popular for a corporate morning tea, or as a slightly more substantial finger food item.

Finally... Sandwich Catering Gets Exciting

For those looking for something a bit more interesting we have shaken things up a little.
From Artisan Sourdough and Stylish Paninis to Wraps, Fresh Baguettes and Petite Gourmet Rolls. Our premium breads and delicious filling combinations allow you to have Sandwich Catering for every occasion. Mix it up with our Mixed Bakery Rolls and Breads or spread it out and select one variety per day. The Sandwich is no longer the boring background element of your catering!

Our Sandwich Catering Feature Item, dreamt up by Managing Director Belinda is the Urban Bite - Gourmet French style rolls cut into bite sized portions. These are designed to impress!

8 Easy Steps to Planning your event

Create an outcome

As simple as it seems, have a think about the sort of atmosphere you’d like to create at your event. What do you want your guests to hear, feel, smell and touch? Jot down some memorable events you have attended in the past and identify what exactly made them special. Set yourself some objectives and you’ll find that it will help shape the direction that your event will take.

Choose and book a venue

Consider the area and how far is it from the majority of your guests’ residence?

Find a venue that includes tables and chairs in their venue hire fee, if required.

Ask your venue for extended time or next day clean up – you’ll be surprised to learn that most venues will accommodate this request!
If you are holding an outdoor event, make certain that you have a reliable backup venue for wet weather (such as a private residence).

Send out invitations

It is very important to post your invitations as well in advance as possible. Ideally, you should also send a reminder via email approximately two weeks before the event.

If you are savvy with Facebook, you may wish to create an event and send a request to your invitees – this is a great way to keep track of your RSVPs online.

Choose and book a caterer

Ensure the caterers you are considering are reputable and are able to provide you with testimonials and guarantees. Ask for a few different quotes from the same company, as you may be able to consolidate all your requirements and deal with the one service provider. Some caterers not only provide food and service staff, but also beverage packages, decor and equipment hire; including everything from glassware and cutlery to spectacular centre pieces and marquees.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions or request a change to the menu; for example if the guest of honour really enjoys a particular pasta dish, just ask your caterer if they can do it especially for you! A lot of caterers also offer an event management service, so feel free to discuss your event with them and obtain as much free advice as possible; this also helps the caterer recommend the most appropriate menu for your occasion.

Theme your event

It isn’t as expensive as you may think!

Holding an event at home? There are lots of options that won’t break your budget: stick some cellophane on your outdoor lighting; hire some cocktail bar tables; make your own coloured table runners; buy some outdoor lanterns and decorate them; hire a helium balloon tank to create your own balloon arrangement; even an outdoor marquee can be found at a reasonable price if you shop around.

Holding an event at a venue? Ask your venue or caterer to provide a quote for a theming package; afterall, they are the experts and you’ll be amazed at what they can come up with.

Create a point of difference

This season’s latest event trend is “revealing”.

Let’s set the scene… your cocktail party has been going for about three hours now; the guest of honour has arrived; everyone has mingled and had a few drinks; the view has been enjoyed, so too has the food – but some guests are starting to glance at their watch every so often and are likely to be considering leaving .

It’s time to REVEAL something new!

Perhaps open up a secret room featuring a cocktail bar to keep the party rolling. Or maybe reveal a dessert station – pull back that mysterious black sheet that everyone’s been wondering about and wow your guests with a tempting selection of sweet treats and dessert liquors. Why not have an entertainer join the party, perhaps a snake-taming belly dancer, a magician, a singer or even a fire-twirling performer!

On-the-day tips

Arrange transport to and from the venue for your guests, such as hiring a bus. This ensures the event will run on time and everyone has a safe way home.

Don’t forget the candles for the birthday cake!

If you plan to be at the venue early to set up or prepare your decorations, bring a change of clothes so you are nice and fresh!
Make sure you know where the bathrooms are located, and if you’ve hired service staff for the event, be sure to let them know also. You might like to consider creating some signage so that it’s easy for your guests to find the bathrooms without asking; if it is an outdoor event, you could even create an atmospheric path to the amenities with a trail of lanterns or tealight candles.

MOST IMPORTANTLY – Enjoy the event!

No one enjoys a stressed or frazzled host! Enjoy the night as much as you can and the positive energy will flow through the entire event.

Make sure you greet everyone on arrival. A great way to do this is to have a basket of small gifts with a personalized tag for each of your guests; not only is it a lovely token but it also ensures you keep track of which guests you have seen and those you haven’t!
