New Year Countdown

It will soon be New year’s eve and another chance to celebrate.  A chance to welcome in the new year – 2014, so get our your little black dress and don your party gear and invite all your friends to the last bash of this year.

You need to think about the music, decorations, drinks and party food.

We think  canapes, buffets and finger foods which are easily eaten and allow your guests to carry on talking and drinking without getting stuck into a three course are an ideal option for new years eve and are ideal foods that can be eaten on the go as often there is not enough seating for all on the evening.

   Canapes at Chatsworth House    Tasty sausage rolls

Canapes at Chatsworth House

Our buffets offer a wide range of canapes and cold buffet style catering all freshly created for your special occasion, allowing you to see in 2014 in style and without any cooking in the kitchen beforehand.  Try our mix and match finger foods like a few of the following
