Christmas catering in Melbourne

Make your 2022 office Christmas party one to remember with the best food and drink options delivered straight to the celebration.

From a dinner with your partner at a fine dining restaurant to a delicious catered lunch with your work wife, we believe all the good Valentine's Day ideas involve food.

We also believe Valentine's Day is about so much more than romance.

So show your love and appreciation to everyone in your life and celebrate Valentine's Day with some tasty noms this February.

Sweet treats for the entire company

If you were looking for an excuse to treat the office to a sweet treat... This. Is. It.

Heart-shaped chocolates, red velvet cupcakes and cookies iced with plenty of red and pink are the perfect way to Celebrate Valentine's Day at work. Of course, you can't forget fluffy doughnuts or rich macarons.

Plenty of our corporate baking and catering partners make special Valentine's Day treats each February, or you can opt to get some custom biscuits made for a unique spin on Valentine's Day from somewhere like Wilton's Cookies where you can order individually wrapped, branded cookies in Valentine's Day colours.

A lovely way to show employee recognition

Celebrating Valentine's Day isn't just for couples. It's the perfect way to show anyone you care about them — co-workers and employees included.

And if your crew is anything like ours, employees feel appreciated when they're treated well, encouraged and, of course, well fed!

Whether you want to leave a the perfect gift of Valentine's Day chocolates on the desk of each employee, order in an extra special meal over their lunch break or host some end-of-day drinks, make sure you show employee recognition to your team in a way they'll appreciate.

What food should I order for Valentine's Day?

Of course this depends on whether you're going for a meal or just a tea, but here are a few suggestions of what we'd put on our Valentine's Day menu. We'd recommend getting things that are a little extra special to really show the appreciation today:

Savoury

  • Seafoods, such as oysters, scallops and prawns, are often on the "romance" menu, but even for a non-romantic Valentine's Day celebration, they certainly make great any occasion special
  • Cheese and charcuterie boards are always a winner if you're taking the grazing plates approach and it pair perfectly with a glass of wine

Sweet

  • Cakes and cookies that are decorated with Valentine's Day in mind, including icing, design and the colour used in the dough itself
  • Small sweets to scatter around the office, including candy hearts and plenty of chocolate

Drinks

  • Bring in barista coffees, topped with love hearts in the foam or opt for creamy hot chocolates
  • If you're hosting after-work drinks for a little Valentine's Day at work soirée, stock up on recipes for pink and red cocktails and order a few reds, rosés and whites - with those hues they're practically made for this day!

Another great idea is to let the team decide! After all, you're trying to show staff appreciation, so why not encourage employees to share their favourite dishes and order those in.

When do I need to order food for it to arrive on Valentine's Day?

We'd recommend ordering a few days in advance of your Valentine's Day celebrations so you have a better idea of numbers. However, you can order catering through our online marketplace as early as you'd like! As for a final cut-off time, this all depends on the caterer.

All of our listings will mention the turnaround time next to an image of a clock. For example, the below example requires a minimum 21-hour turnaround time.

What can I do for Valentine's Day in the office?

Putting together a Valentine's Day shindig for the office can be super easy with just a few must-have things. We'd recommend getting:

  • Savoury and sweet nibbles (including plenty of chocolate!)
  • Simple decorations, like balloons or flowers
  • Opt for pink or red napkins, cutlery and plates if you're needing some
  • A small gift of appreciation for each employee (such as a card, or goodie bag with sweets)

When is Valentine's Day?

Always on February 14, in 2023 Valentine's Day falls on a Tuesday.

Is Valentine's Day a public holiday in Australia?

Nope! Valentine's Day isn't a public holiday, so it's a normal working day. It may not be a holiday, but you can make it a little extra special by showing some employee recognition today with some Valentine's Day treats.

Happy Valentine's Day from the EatFirst team! ❤
