Customer Provided Food
We understand you may desire to serve a small amount of your own food at your event*. Our insurance carrier will not allow us to handle any foods other than those prepared in our own licensed and inspected kitchen. We suggest a small sign displayed by the dish to give personalized credit where credit is due.
*a small amount is defined as less than ten per cent (10%) of the total.
All clients are charged a one time non-refundable $500.00 booking fee to guarantee time and date of their function. Once we receive this fee we can then begin to arrange the details of your party.
