Funeral Catering FAQs

We would be happy to help you find your ideal location. It is always better to find the location first before designing a menu to ensure that the menu can be executed at the venue you have selected.

We have had nearly three decades of experience in catering. Our chefs know exactly how much you need. We would be so embarrassed if we ran out of food! Your budget and choices will determine the extent of how well your guests will be fed.

We have a list of florists that we have worked with on a regular basis for many years. Just ask us and we can narrow the list based on your particular taste and style. Not all florists have the same style, costs or look and we want to be sure we recommend the right one for you.

Kitchens are considered a luxury to us! We have created kitchens in warehouses with a tap and electricity. We have fed hundreds in parks with no electricity. Just be sure to tell us what there is to work with. We don’t want you to fall in love with a menu that can’t be produced for lack of a kitchen or facilities.

We can provide you with any equipment you might need for your event. Tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery, glassware, linens, sound, lights, décor, portable restrooms, flowers, candles, lounge furniture just to name some!

What Our Clients Say

Karin, I felt completely calm about the wake as I knew it was in your capable hands, & as a result I was able to take the time to talk to people who played a role in Wayne’s life. Everyone has commented on how terrific your food and staff were.
