COCKTAIL PARTIES, BBQS, DINNERS
Planning a party yet don't want to
cook, bar tend and serve?
Events and parties hosting, food and drink are my forte.
If you love parties yet aren't too keen on all that hosting entails with menu planning, food prep, cocktail making, serving, etc then call on me.
Together we can choose the right theme, food and drink line up and I'll come over and host that party with you ensuring all are well fed and drinks are flowing leaving you to truly enjoy your guests.
Years ago I made the epic error of catering my own wedding party and serving as well. It took years before I finally hired serving help for the Christmas parties where we would have 70+ people and food prep that began in Oct. My social connection was limited to hellos and goodbyes.
Its my innate nature to ensure guests are well cared for. Let me come and do this for you preparing fabulous food to impress and tending the bar with creative cocktail making or simply pouring the wine, beer, etc.
