Canape Box – your party fixed in one click
‘Oooh’, I hear you cry. ‘What’s in this little black box?’ (Go on then, say it!).
The answer: a very clever idea that will save you a packet. Christopher Messum owner of the nattily named Canape Box, based in High Wycombe, provides canapes for parties at prices to make private caterers weep, and executives at Waitrose anxiously mop their brows with their easy-iron cotton kerchiefs.
For around £1.45 a canape, you can order the nibs of your choice online and then they’ll arrive with free delivery in these custom-made cooler boxes between 2-4 hours before your event. If like me you are a hopeless procrastinator and leave everything until crisis point, relax – you can order online up to 48 hours before your event, and if you pick up the blower they are likely to help even with a shorter time frame.
Minimum orders are £150, with no VAT, and including free delivery around London and the Home Counties, box collection and napkins and made on the day of your event, so that’s your party hassles removed right then and there. Ever your faithful servant, I can confirm that I made light work of the canapes (above) which totally passed the Muddy party test. Crank up the music, pour a large drink, and, er pass me another canape will you?
