Get both your buffet and set-up taken care of

When it comes to corporate celebrations, the magnitude of the event necessitates a buffet that’s both lavish and versatile. Orange Clove meets this need with their quartet of buffet spreads: Making Merry, Gleeful Marvels, Holly Jolly Harvest, and Fairytale Forest Feast, each meticulously curated for large groups, 30 guests and beyond. 

Opt for a spread like the enchanting Fairytale Forest Feast, which not only pleases the palate with its array of 16 delectable dishes (including a beverage) but also comes with a complimentary Whimsical Woodlands Christmas thematic setup* (below).
