Please let us know of any food allergies or special requests. We will be happy to specialize a meal or course for your special guest(s).
We will gladly take care of ordering and organizing any dishes, tables, chairs and linens for your event. The rental equipment will be delivered to you and picked up after the event directly by the rental company. We also have our own inventory of serving dishes and utensils, which is available for small to medium-size events.
We employ a full team of professionals. We will assist you in determining the number of staff needed to ensure your event is a success. Staffing is based on the number of guests, type of event, and projected duration of event including our on-site prep and setup time before the event, and the breakdown and cleanup time after the event has ended. You will receive an estimate that reflects the personnel needs based on these criteria.
Our staff are hired and trained by our management team. Our staff typically arrives one hour prior to guest arrival for event set-up and will be there until at least one hour after guests depart to clean up. The service staff will pass hors d’oeuvres, clear glassware and plates, and help your guests with any special requests.
Tables, Chairs, Place Settings – Need help setting up or taking down tables, chairs and place settings? We can schedule additional staff time to help with whatever you need.
Although we do not provide bartending services, we are happy to recommend reputable, licensed and insured bartending services who regularly work in the area and are familiar with serving laws and venue requirements.
We will gladly provide non-alcoholic beverages, mixers, bar fruit and ice. Mixers can include sodas, club soda, tonic, sparkling water, orange and cranberry juice, lemons, limes and olives.
Our talented team of coordinators has planned thousands of stunning Maine events. They will guide you through the process to create a memorable party. Their service to you will include custom menu design, a timeline and recommendations to make planning a breeze.
What if my event runs longer than expected? Our staff is happy to stay and continue to serve your guests. We will check in with you close to the time scheduled for your event to see if you need us to stay on. If so, you will be billed for those hours the following day.
A deposit of 15% is required to reserve a date for our services. A final guest count ten days prior to the event is required. In the event attendance increases, added adjustments will be made. If attendance decreases, billing will be made referencing to the final guest count that is submitted ten days prior to the event. Deposit is fully refundable up to 30 days prior to event date.
Staff Gratuities are not included in the proposed pricing, unless otherwise noted. If you believe the staff went above and beyond with the level of service and exceeded your expectations, please feel free to give them a gratuity at the end of the event. You may also add that gratuity to your final payment and we will distribute the gratuity accordingly.
A 20% Business Operation fee applies to all staffed events. The Business Operation Fee is not a tip and is calculated on catering sales. The Business Operation Fee is used to supplement the wages of all of our staff, including the staff that loads and cleans the equipment, the cooks that prepare the food in the kitchen and the event staff. It also helps offset administrative and insurance costs associated with your event. An 8% Maine Food Tax is applied to all catering orders.
We look forward to talking with you about your event. Please take a moment to complete a short questionnaire to request a proposal. We'll then follow up with a call to discuss the details further.Request A Catering Proposal
