The Hottest Catering Trend of 2019!
If you want to add creativity and excitement to your next event, food and drink stations are the way to go! Offering interactive stations will not only get your guests involved but it allows them to customise their own menu based on their preferences and dietary requirements. The stations add personality and set the tone for the event. Here’s your guide to the hottest catering trend of 2019.
Interactive food stations allow guests to sample a variety of different food choices while keeping the atmosphere relaxed and informal. Grazing tables are a popular choice for food stations and often feature a spread of cured meats, cheeses, breads and fruits. The colourful tables are a focal point and provides guests the chance to mingle while enjoying their favourite foods.

Mix your own drinks!
Allow your guests to play mixologist and create their own tasty and unique concoctions. With drink stations, guests can choose all the details, from the fruit toppings, right down to the glassware. We recommend including fun accessories such as paper straws and of course, mini umbrellas! At GC Event Hire we have a wide range of glassware for rent including beer and wine glasses, champagne flutes and spirit glasses.
Remember to include a mix of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. A popular hands-on station idea is the make-your-own mojito bar! Start with some lime and mint and then allow guests to experiment with flavoured syrups and herbs. Yum!
Did someone say dessert?
Dessert stations are a fantastic way to end a successful event. Desserts are visually appealing and there is nothing better than having the option to go back for a second or even a third serving! Include savoury and sweet stations, where you can feature a wide range treats such as mini cupcakes, donuts, fruit, cheese, macaroons and much more!
At GC Event Hire, we can help you create the perfect dessert stations with our range of platters, tiered plate stands, cake servers, platters, sugar bowls, and dessert bowls.
Set a theme
Food stations can fit in with an overall theme, can be laid-back or sophisticated and can be a great substitution for a seated meal. How about treating your guests to a culinary trip around the world? From tacos and nachos to slices of delicious pizza, your guests can indulge in all types of food. Our favourite interactive idea is the create-your-own-tacos station! Just remember to equip your station with the necessary serving tools.
