He end of the year is quickly approaching us, which means that the melbourne cup is just around the corner. there are very few occasions throughout the year where you can take a break in the middle of the day, sip on champagne, place some bets and watch a race. you could be either huddled around a tv screen doing this or, live at flemington. the melbourne cup is always fun from near or far and the team at egg can help you get the most out of the best day of the year.

Have you considered hosting your own melbourne cup celebrations at the office or from home? we have tips that you help you have a lovely little day.

We all know that the melbourne cup is generally a day that involves a lot of booze, and we all know what the best cure for that is…. food! egg suggest serving some nibbles so that guests are still standing by the afternoon! as melbourne cup parties usually start quite early, finger foods for breakfast or lunch would be best fitted. book a hamper with us and to ease your worries on the day! we will even deliver it on serving platters all ready to go.

we recommend the following catering options for your melbourne cup event:

  • High Tea Package
  • Classic Chicken Ribbon Sandwiches
  • Leek, Gruyere & Tomato Tart

A little bit of fun never hurt nobody, be sure to place some bets and get competitive! you can do this by either using the TAB, or what we prefer, running a sweepstake with your group of friends or colleagues! for an added touch of fun, include some awards for the day such as best dressed.
