Many guests that bring children to events will bring their own food to your engagement but many will want their children to partake in your special day. Children 0-4 always complimentary at a booked catered event. Children 12 & under have the choice of a kids meal for $10 per child. Any child 11 & under that does not want to partake in the kids meal will be at a discounted rate determined by your menu. Kids 12+ are counted at full quoted price per person & included in your head count. For the 11 & under discounted price , we will need the totals of children no later than 2 weeks in advance. This option is not for children's party menus, this option is for adult events with children in attendance.
30 days or more we will need to do a walk through of your event space with either you, your wedding planner or the venue management to see the space we will be setting up your buffet. This is essential in determining what we will need to bring.
For Offsite Catering we will need to use the kitchen at your venue the day of the event as well as a small area out of guest view to assist with set-up & breakdown including loading, unloading , refrigeration and plating. If we are at a venue that does not have a full service kitchen we will have to set up a small 10x10 tent with tables and cooking equipment for an additional cost.
