How to Throw a Holiday Party

Jingle bells, jingle bells! Okay, okay, we know it may be just a little early for caroling or decking the halls. But, if you’re throwing a holiday party, now is the perfect time to start planning your festive bash! Whether it’s an office Christmas party, family gathering or the biggest neighborhood party of the season, three things are for sure; you’re going to need a venue, entertainment and food!

While the magic of the season is great, you may need a little more help planning your event. And since no two holiday parties are the same, there is no “one-size-fits-all” answer for your event. That’s where Scarborough Fare Catering steps in. Think of us as your jolly elves! Our experienced team can help you find the perfect venue that matches your vision and can accommodate your guest list. We have great contacts and have personally catered events at MANY different venues. But – we even have our own private event space, The Martinsborough, in beautiful uptown Greenville that may be just what you’re looking for!

Once you’ve checked “finding the venue” off your list, the real fun begins. Deciding on entertainment, a theme and décor is sure to get you into the spirit of the season. Think outside the box for your party. Here at Scarborough Fare, we encourage unique entertainment. March to the beat of your own little drummer boy! After all, you want your holiday party to be memorable, right? We can help lead you in the right direction. We have great contacts, from in-house music at The Martinsborough, dueling pianos and musicians, to magicians and Imagine Circus. Imagine Circus and their performers, tarot card readers and lollipop lyra aerial bartender are sure to make your night unforgettable. Or, if your vision for the event is more low-key, how do delicious eggnog cocktails while singing Christmas carols around a baby grand sound?

Scarborough Fare also provides linens of every price and design, and we can even coordinate table centerpieces or entire room design! We’ll work with you to make the whole event come together seamlessly and best of all you won’t have to be in contact with numerous vendors!

Now to our favorite part, the FOOD! We’ll help you plan the perfect menu that will satisfy and surprise guests! Whether you decide on a buffet, food stations or a plated meal, your guests will leave with a festive heart and a full belly! Menu items that have us saying “Santa Baby!” include, bacon-wrapped Elk tenderloin, balsamic-molasses glazed whole bone-in pork loin, cornmeal crusted fried oysters and pimento cheese open face biscuits. And for something sweet, what about an assorted cookie bar, or mini pecan pies and truffles perfectly paired with a signature holiday cocktails like an Irish Coffee or Eggnog?

Whether you’re planning a formal event adorned with sparkles and guests in their holiday best, or a Christmas bash with loud music and guests in ugly Christmas sweaters, let us help! Our inclusive services will make it easy to throw the best holiday party of the year!
