We provide service personnel (servers, bartenders, and cooks). We also provide china, silverware, glassware, linens, tables, and chairs if needed. Eco-friendly disposables are included if the function demands them.
Fresh Flowers for Buffet/Food Service Presentation
Presentation is almost as important to us as food quality. We use fresh flowers for the decoration of all food displays and serving trays. Some clients prefer to use their own florist, which is welcome, of course.
We cater outdoor wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, barbecues, and casual gatherings. We work closely with local rental companies for our client's equipment and tent rental needs.
Personalized Menu Planning
We do not have set menus. Instead, we plan each menu according to our client's preferences and needs. We have lists of menu items that we offer, which we will send to you. In turn, you make your choices and we put together a proposal based on what you have chosen and the number of guests that you are expecting. Another option is for us to design a menu for you, leaving all the worry to us!
Private Homes and Approved Venues
A majority of the parties we cater are in our client's homes, but we are approved caterers at the following facilities for larger events such as weddings, business events and other special ocassions:
- Bellevue Hall, The Cauffiel House, Figure 8 Barn, and Blue Ball Barn at Bellevue State Park, Wilmington, Delaware
- The Judge Morris Estate (also affiliated with Bellevue State Park), Newark, DE
- The Delaware Museum of Natural History, Greenville, DE
- Congregation Beth Emeth, Wilmington, DE
- Buena Vista Conference Center, New Castle, DE
Cost of service is based on the length of your event. We recommend one chef for full-service parties. We recommend two servers for up to 25 guests, then an additional server for each additional 20 guests. We recommend one bartender for 75 guests. We arrive several hours before your event begins to complete our final preparations, then service your event from start to finish and clean up for you as well.
Due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to provide alcoholic beverages. We ask that you provide all liquor, beer and wine. We can provide the mixers, bar fruit and ice for you. We do carry liquor liability insurance which enables us to provide bartenders who will set up, service and break down/clean up the bar for you. We will provide plastic ware at no additional charge, or can help you with your glass rental needs. We can also supply you with a liquor quantity guide that will assist you with your purchasing needs.
We kindly ask for a deposit at the time of booking to secure your date. We ask for 50% of the balance two weeks prior to your event, and then the balance is due the day of your event.
We ask for a minimum guest count 2 weeks prior to your event. The final count is due 5 working days before your event. After this time, your count may increase, but may not decrease.
