We are always asked if we need access to your kitchen at private properties. This is lovely for people open their homes for us however as we provide all our own catering equipment this is not practical space wise.
The garage is the best place for us onsite, sounds strange to some however this is why...
It is close to parking, offers a sheltered undercover area with access to power, lighting and water, has space for our onsite preparations and is within walking distance to where guests will be.
No matter what you decide you would like for catering there are options to suit and ensure guests are well fed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Finger Foods or Grazing Table
Which do I choose for my wedding??
I am asked this question a lot since COVID restrictions are easing and share catering is now permitted again.
While we have always had our catering options for the Grazing Table on platters rather than spread onto a table I always prefer Finger Food service. As someone who works behind the scenes in preparation as well as onsite with service I have learnt the most popular for all functions is Finger Food Canapes. Why is this you ask?
Finger Foods offer the flexibility for staff to walk platters of food around to guests to enjoy. This allows guests to relax, have a drink and conversation without the worry of missing out on eating. Lets face it, wedding and event days can be busy with getting ready and travel so by the time its time to relax you are hungry. Very hungry, and with the mix of alcohol it is important for guests to know they will be well fed.
I see this all too often at functions; guests start chatting and don’t want to break a conversation to move to the food table or station. Finger Foods allow guests to move around freely and enjoy time with friends and family with platters of catering walked around to guests. When guests know they will be well fed they relax and really enjoy themselves.
We will always ensure guests are fed!

Wedding Trends 2018 - Styling
As the weather starts to warm up we are seeing a boom in enquiries for 2019 Weddings, while the majority of these are for June and September wedding celebrations are year round on the Sunshine Coast.
2018 was largely influenced with vintage styling with soft touches of lace and hessian, beautiful flowers and the backdrop of nature to provide a romantic setting. Weddings in 2019 seem to be trending with a similar styling with more and more brides adding their own personal touches to the wedding setup.
From rustic wooden centrepieces to cute glass bottles with cardboard straws we see a touch of old school elegance in the styling of wedding receptions. It is really beautiful to see pops of colour incorporated through the use of flowers from pastel pinks to romantic reds and beautiful blues with luscious foliage of green to create texture. Flowers are a great way to soften or brighten the styling to suit the season with Baby’s Breath a popular choice for whites.
The little touches we noticed more and more in 2017 and trending into 2018 are really beautiful from glass bottles wrapped in hessian and ribbon or lace with lashings of baby’s breath to rustic cutlery holders with personalised greeting cards.
We really enjoy incorporating the styling into the service of catering, it is beautiful to continue the textures and flowers onto a Gourmet Buffet or Grazing Table or presenting beautiful handmade savoury tarts in the centre of each plate ready for guests to enjoy once seated – perfect for Share Platters and formal seated dinners.
