Dinner Party Overview

Private dinner parties include 2-4 appetizers, salad, entree and dessert. When you book with me, I’ll start the planning process by sending you a list of appetizers and sample menus based on your food preferences. On the day of the dinner party, I’ll pick up the groceries (and bring any extra cooking supplies as needed) and head to your party 2-3 hours beforehand (depending on the amount of work required). Dinner is served plated or buffet-style (depending on the number of people). After dinner, I will clean-up and leave you to enjoy the rest of your evening!


Areas I normally serve include: Spring Lake, Grand Haven, Holland, Grand Rapids, Saugatuck, Fennville and South Haven. I would be happy to travel to your location; however, there will be a $50 travel fee for locations more than 1 hour away from Holland.
