We understand that spending money wisely is important to you. It’s important to us too. We purposely do not print specific prices of individual items on our menus as they can be misleading. Since catering involves so much more than just the food, it is extremely important when determining cost to consider all factors that go into producing a successful and memorable event.
In order to successfully serve people, caterers must provide basic dish ware and utensils. If you choose to use our disposable acrylic plates, napkins, cups, and utensils — these items are included in the menu price. On the other hand, if you prefer to use china, real silverware, and glassware the menu price will increase. Additional items to keep in mind are guest seating tables, chairs, buffet and service tables, linens, flowers, etc.
