Here's showcasing a few tips on a party menu for a boss' day celebrations. Read on and act accordingly!
Ideas For Party Menu For Boss' Day
- The first thing to remember or find out when putting together a party menu for your boss is the kind of food he or she likes and more importantly dislikes. It will after all amount to nothing if you have a party menu dominated by seafood and poultry when you know your boss dislikes both. Remember, the party is for your boss and not for you. Focus on what your boss likes and let go what you know he/she dislikes and you are assured to have a very pleased boss at the end of the party.
- As ironical as it is going to sound, sometimes, it will not suffice to focus completely on what your boss likes. Such a situation may arise when your boss likes quite a number of dishes that you and your colleagues are not particularly fond of or can’t eat. For example, if your boss is noted for his appetite for meat and poultry, but most of your colleagues and you are vegetarians, you have a problem on your hands. To deal with such a predicament, the best thing to do is to strike a perfect balance between what your boss likes and what your colleagues dislike. In the above cited example, if at all faced with such a situation, you can have few non-vegetarian dishes for your boss and a lot more of vegetarian dishes. This way, everyone goes home with smiling faces and packed tummies.
- Alcohol is a very integral part of almost any party, but the question to ask yourself here is, is it needed at a boss’ day party or is it best left out. The answer to this question can be found in the number of colleagues who consume alcohol. If your boss plus quite a handful of your colleagues drink, you can serve alcohol at the party, a cocktail party of sorts. However, if your boss is the only one who drinks, while you and most of your colleagues don’t, alcohol can be left out. Alcohol can also be left out if your boss does not consume alcohol, irrespective of how many colleagues drink or don’t drink.
- As for the food, you can put together a great menu by striking a unique balance between quality and variety. Here, you can compromise with variety, but don’t ever compromise with the quality of the food served. Protocols at boss’ day parties may require you to have two to three starters, four to five main course options and two to three dessert options. This much variety at a boss’ day party should do just fine. You can, in any case, feel free to serve a lot more dishes, provided you don’t compromise on the quality of the food served.
There you go; a handful of useful tips on how to plan that perfect party menu for a boss' day party. With the triumphant implementation of these tips, your boss' day party is guaranteed to be a roaring success.
