How To Order With Us
Step 1: Consultation
The first step of planning an event is to understand your overall vision. We’ll be there to guide you through all the details. We can start this journey over the phone or in person, however you prefer.
Step 2: Preliminary Proposal
We’ll create a proposal outlining each service we discussed, with costs calculated individually: we pro-vide clear, concise pricing with no hidden fees. We’ll work together to refine the proposal, adjusting el-ements as necessary to meet your vision and budget.
Step 3: Contract of Service
Once the proposal details are agreed upon, we ask you to sign a contract. This contract secures the date and location, but your menu and final guest count are not required until 12 days prior to your event — this puts you at ease on the date while we work through the remaining details.
Step 4: Detail Selection
With the contract signed, we’ll schedule a walk-through to discuss the flow and style of your event. It’s also a great time to discuss the look of the buffet area as well as discussing what décor will be used to enhance your event.
“Hi Robin! You and your crew did a FANTASTIC job at our wedding. I couldn’t have asked for better service or better tasting food. It was absolutely delicious and served on time…just how we wanted it to be done.”
