15th, 16th & 18th Birthday Finger Food Menus

At Party Food Melbourne, we appreciate how much effort goes into organising a birthday party. 18th birthdays can be a little more complicated – do you provide alcohol or not, do you need security? How do you take care of your guests without ‘intruding on their space’?

Our philosophy is that we want your child’s 18th birthday to be remembered as a great party. This means great catering menu choices that the younger crowd will love, a variety of different foods served throughout the party to keep them eating, especially if drinking, and that food is available throughout the party. Our full service catering frees up your time so that you can be an active host. We bring the food, kit and equipment needed to heat & serve. We even clean the kitchen at the end.

These are our most popular finger food menus for millenial birthdays, check our high tea menus here or contact us for a custom quote.

Our real fruit frozen cocktails and virgin drinks are also popular for youth birthdays – proportion of alcohol can be controlled and they are more festive than boozy! Add a touch of class to your 18th birthday. They also reduce workload on the bar and recycling waste.

* A note about vegan foods – we are experiencing a huge increase in popularity for vegan foods, especially for millennial parties. We can provide a vegan-only or vegan-mostly menu, vegan grazer to finish and more.

We have received so many compliments on the delicious food and variety of options available at our Engagement Party. Many people commented that the service was excellent and noted that Lindy was especially friendly, being mindful to offer particular food options to those who had specific dietary requirements and preferences. We had a great night. I will definitely be keeping Party Food Melbourne’s details handy for any functions in our future!
Best wishes,
Just wanted to write and say thank you to you and your team for the success of our party.
The catering staff person you provided, Andrea, was excellent, efficient and very personable. The food was of the usual high standard and our house was left clean & tidy after Andrea left.
Why would anybody cater for a party any other way?
