Outstanding Cocktail Party Catering

Griffin Catering & Events are cocktail party catering experts.  We know the main element for a successful cocktail party is the food.  Guests expect quality, quantity and variety.  Tick all 3 and let griffin catering & Events take the stress out of your next event.

Ausdrill recently celebrated their Christmas party at Fremantle Prison.  As a full events specialist, Griffin Catering & Events coordinated all elements from furniture hire by Heart Strings Hire & Style, specialist lighting by Focus Promotions as well as the cocktail party catering.

The party was deemed a success by all.  Ausdrill had exclusive use of Cell Block divisions 2 and 3 as well as the grassed area outside, perfect for pre-dinner drinks and canapes.  Plus, the outside area featured a long grazing table and Cell Block 2 a dessert station.

One by one VIP guests arrived greeted with a drink, canapes and helped themselves to the grazing table.  Chef Paul Griffin said his team prepared approximately 3.5k canapes for the whole evening.
