At Celebrations, we like to customize the menu to each client's wishes, but it's always helpful to have a basic plan from which to start. We hope you will consider our sample menus as thought-starters, and with our assistance, develop an offering that will delight your guests. We are always happy to accommodate special dietary needs as well.
Whenever possible, we endeavour to use seasonal, fresh ingredients from the County and surrounding area.
All prices quoted are based on groups of a minimum of 25 guests; smaller groups can also be accommodated, and we will be happy to quote based on your numbers. Prices are subject to change and do not include taxes and gratuities.
