The festive season is a welcomed treat for anyone looking for a merry good time with friends and family. With many restrictions in place due to COVID, this upcoming holiday season may be a little different than that spent in previous years. Many may choose to stay in and gather with family, or have a cosy party with friends instead of heading out.
But for some, the idea of hosting a dinner for loved ones — or if you’re spending time with your lovely self, thinking of what food to prepare for your solo retreat in front of the TV — can be stressful.
7-Eleven has preempted this concern and provided a solution to the festive fiasco we all want to avoid. Take the hassle out of your party planning — with their festive pre-order programme, there’s no need to shop around as all essentials can be conveniently pre-ordered at 7-Eleven around the clock.
Pre-ordered food and fun
Choose from an array of cold cuts, dessert ideas, French champagnes and fun family games to keep loved ones fed and entertained. Here are some options you can try:
A party buffet woudn’t be complete without appetisers! The cold cuts on these platters come pre-sliced and include a charcuterie board, saving you time and effort which allows you to spend more time out of the kitchen and with your guests.
