Covid Safe Staff Xmas Parties- Lismore and surrounding areas

The time has come to start organising your staff Christmas party and you are just so confused at what you should do to keep your staff safe this year

Restaurants are limited to tables of 10 for a booking. That would not be much fun, might as well just go out to dinner yourself.

Well High Tea Ladies offer a couple of different options that you may wish to consider for your staff Xmas Party this year.

Have you thought of a outside event in the style of a picnic.? Of course you would have to have a plan B just in case of bad weather. A marque, a Hall, a Property.

There is always the option of hiring a unique country hall, such as Mcleans Ridges Hall, Ureka Hall, Wyrallah Hall, Clunes Hall that have a beautiful outside areas, and then you have the hall as well.

Just inagine a beautiful covid safe buffet all set up for you with xmas decor.

Tables set or picnic rugs and cushions set up. Staff would have their own picnic box to go to the buffet and select what they would like to enjoy and return to the tables or rugs. All catering is served as individual servings. Salads are in glass jars along with the sweets. Everything else is individually wrapped to ensure their protection. We bring everything except the tables and chairs, although we can assist with the organising if you need help.

We can even assist with some games to make your picnic fun. So why not give it a try and do something a little different this year.

Corona Virus Safe High Tea or Pop Up Picnic.

We are all changing the way that we do things now, because we need to keep our clients and family safe.

High Teas are a little different. Even though all of the food for a High Tea has always been individual serves. We are taking extra precautions with our business to ensure safety of our clients. Individual sanatisers are used so as clients can used them when it comes to pouring their tea from a teapot. Although we prefer to pour it for you, at times you just can’t wait for us to come along, and that is fine, as long as you sanatise before doing so.

We also use more trays for serving, so as the food is spread out on the tierd tray, so as each person can select their own food, in a safe manner.

Instead of our sugar cubes, (which look lovely) we now use sugar sachets.

Just cannot purchase UHT milk for a High Tea, so again we ask clients to sanatise before using the milk jug, or waiting for us to serve.

OUR BUFFET catering is also very safe. It has always been individual serves. Salads in glass jars, sweets in glass jars, and food individually wrapped for each guest. So not much of a change here. We call it picnic style catering, and is great for lunch, or dinner, inside or outside.

Our Parties This Month

We do a varity of catering so February has been a bit of a variety as well. We seemed to have done a bit of everything.

First of all there was a Baby Shower in Lennox Head. 21 Guests. It was a High Tea with all the trimmings, and we supplied the games as well. One of the games we played was Mrs Wright. It is a fun game and everyone gets a gift to either keep or give to the Mother to be.

we did a surprise picnic for two or a couple who were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. We set it up at their home, and they had no idea. This was a Breakfast picnic, set up on the verandah of their home that was being built. What a surprise they got. They had such lovelynrural views from their verandah .

Next there was a 70th Birthday Party. This was a High Tea at their home in Alstonville. Guests game from afar to celebrate. High Tea was set up with purple trimmings. There were children attending as well, so we set up our childrens china for them, so as they could enjoy the day as well. We also did a special menu for the children. I do no know of too many children that want the same High Tea food as adults.

Morning tea for a corporate business was the next event. We delivered andset up a morning tea for all the guests. We supplied home made scones, jam and cream, some savouries and sweets.

Two young ladies, one who was turning 30 had a picnic at Wategoes Beach in Byron Bay. It was a surprise for the birthday girl. We dropped off the picnic basket, picnic blanket and cushions for a brunch. We thought it wouldn’t be quite that busy then, but it was. The ladies had a great spot for their picnic though, and throughly enjoyed.

A wake was the next one that we did. We take a lot of pride in doing wakes, as we try to make it a personalised event to celebrate the life of the loved one. This family had all the fine china, linen serviettes etc set up as a buffet, as their mum was a great cook, and loved her crafts. It was such a pleasure assisting this family.

The other thing that has happened is we are in the process of trialing doing High Teas on a boat at brunswick heads. The Byron Bay Echo Cruises and Kyakes are looking at working with us to bring this alive. I feel it will be a great tourist attraction, if we can get it going.

Anyway that was about all for our month, some good times and we met some great people.

Catering You will Enjoy

Our catering covers a few different areas and we pride ourselves in being able to service our community in Lismore, Ballina, Evans Head, Casino mainly, but we also travel to Byron Bay to service the tourist customers.

Why should catering be the same all the time. We do our very best to ensure that our catering is different.

We also theme our table decorations to suit your theme.

Larger groups such as weddings, company picnics or family groups we can set up a buffet style picnic. Guests have a picnic box to go to the buffet and select their menu, and return to the picnic rugs or tables and chairs to enjoy. This is as lovely option for a Wedding.
