Fresh, simple, seasonal food prepared for all occasions. Our presentation is as much a feast for the eyes as it is a delight for the palette. Because we cater only one event per day, we hand select our ingredients on market day for your event exclusively. Providing special selections for specific dietary needs is never a problem. Because every budget is distinct, we give you the option to choose the level of service we provide for your unique celebration … drop off, set & serve buffet, or full-service including family style.
What truly sets us apart is our full mobile kitchen and we feel blessed to have such an asset. Our tastefully discreet commercial kitchen allows us to prepare virtually anywhere! Perhaps your venue doesn’t have a kitchen or is in a remote location. Maybe you’re at a private residence and you can’t imagine inconveniencing the host by disrupting their home kitchen. Or, your event may be best suited to serving from our window and counter. Much of our food is prepared right on site just before serving. Freshness counts … we are not only farm to fork fresh … but flame to flatware fast!
Romantic best describes our vision of floral design. Complimentary colors, varying textures and graceful lines are composed in blooms & greens to adorn the surroundings. From bridal bouquets, garlands and swags to fantastic garden vegetable & herb displays on food tables, the creativity is endless in what floral design can provide for your venue.
"SOOOO DELICIOUS - IMPECCABLE SERVICE! You were amazing to work with and you had rave reviews all night and continuing to come in to me via text from attendees today! It was delicious! Thank you with all of our hearts! And, tummies 😊"
"Chantal and Chris,
We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous meal you prepared for us! The food and ease of set-up and service were beyond our expectations and EVERYBODY raved about the food! We could not be happier! Thank you!"
"I hope this email finds you well! Now that all the wedding craziness has settled down, I wanted to send you a personal note to thank you for making my big day so beautiful. I could not have asked for a better arrangement of flowers, from the bouquets to the centerpieces, to the many extra decor areas. Everything was perfect and I am so happy with how it all came together. I have said great things about your service to many brides that I know are getting married soon and have recommended your service to all of them. I hope with my referral and happy reviews I am able to send brides your way. "
