Styles Of Service

Heavy appetizers

This is such a fun way to feed a crowd, allowing for easy movement among guests and interaction about the bites. Appetizers are typically self contained and don’t require any utensils. Bold flavors and beautiful presentations are key.

Family style

This definitely speeds up the pace of the dinner and lends a more casual and interactive feeling to the event. Great for groups with children. Family style dinners can also work well with a cocktail hour and dessert.


Similar to family style except the platters of food can be displayed on a kitchen island or serving table. This is a great option for groups over 20. Gorgeous bountiful platters are presented with no warming equipment needed for most events.

Individually coursed & plated

Starting at 3 courses and going up from there. Most common is a cocktail hour with appetizers (1-2) followed by a first course, second course, and dessert.
