Support Local Suppliers with National Picnic Month
Monday 27 July 2020
There has always been something special about leaving the confines of your home and eating a meal outdoors – and now it’s even more appealing! Some of our favourite London suppliers are now allowing you experience their gorgeous catering from the comfort of your own home, garden or local park.
Picnics have been used to bring families, friends and even countries together (yes really!). Now some of us have a little more time with our families or even if you want to 'get the team together' virtually over lunch, why not invite them to something special. So let us celebrate by supporting our local suppliers;
Moving Venue’s Moving Menus
The wondrous Moving Venue (catering branch of the SMART Group), have recently adapted their menus to allow everyone to enjoy their innovative and top-quality catering from home. Making the most of the fact that most meetings are taking place virtually at present or that we’ve been unable to treat and thank our clients’ in person for months, Moving Venue have created ‘The Moving Menu’ with everything from Brunch, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, to Canapes available for special delivery. If you would rather host an interactive get together, they can even arrange a ‘cook-along’ or Wine Tasting with one of their Chefs over video – with the necessary ingredients delivered to your door!
Options start from just £32 + VAT per person and, where possible, are packaged in recyclable cardboard packaging.
Jimmy Garcia’s Food Party Boxes
In a similar vein, the ever creative Jimmy Garcia has launched Food Party Boxes, designed to allow friends, family, colleagues and business associates to enjoy fun, restaurant quality party food at home.
Offering everything from Cocktail Hampers, BBQ Masterclasses, Pizza Boxes, Fondue Boxes (yes, fondue people!) and even a Sunday Roast box.
Jimmy’s full range of boxes can be delivered to front doors all over the UK, and with the option to add a masterclass, cook along, pub quiz or even bingo to all boxes, you and your colleagues can get a little more out of that work Zoom call than a cup of tea and a catch up.
Boxes start from just £15 per person for Cocktails and £40 for food.
Country City Catering
A regular at our annual London Event Shows (The London Christmas Party Show and The London Summer Event Show), Country City Catering have adapted their offering to bring the novelty of ‘at home’ company parties to life.
We love the idea of re-purposing your company summer party budget to send all the team a luxury picnic or BBQ hamper to enjoy at home made up of three courses and presented in a luxury wicker hamper. Just schedule a team zoom call to virtually enjoy the summer party atmosphere and catch up!
The team can even create a bespoke offering if you already had a theme planned!
With a minimum requirement of 10 packages per order, the price per person includes all the lovely goodies as well as delivery on an allocated day to addresses within the M25 (addresses outside the M25 can be catered for at an additional charge).
Boxes start from just £25 per person.
As with all our top suppliers, the above options can provide vegetarian and vegan versions of all packages and can also caterer to individual dietary requirements.
While our suppliers are making it easier to host events at home, we know that the organisation and logistics can still be a worry! Our team at Story Bespoke have already delivered some great virtual events
The team have been busy researching creative, interactive and integrated platforms to best suit your needs. Assessing the capabilities of existing technologies such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Remo, as well as testing new and innovative ways to meet virtually. With online meetings and webinars filling the diaries, the aim is to deliver your event goals in an engaging, inspiring and genuine way. By taking guests out of their day to day screen activity, whether a conference or a Christmas party, Story can work with you to deliver a memorable experience.
