Tier Three

For those soirées that are a bit larger (over 8 people) and require a bit more than just a private chef….

The Joel's Catering Experience

The Dinner Party Experience Tier Three

This tier of service includes delicious food from Joel's Catering, a private chef and a waiter (both for 4 hours of service), up to 3 hours of design consultation with Blue Gardenia Events, and Blue Gardenia Events will also be on hand up to 2 hours before the event to help with set-up and can return the next day to pick up any rental items that might need to be returned.

This tier is priced at $1500  (all taxes and fees included) and serves 8-12 guests. For each additional person above 12 guests, there would be an additional $100 per person & would need to add an additional waiter for $150 (4 hours of service)

If you have an allergy or special request...don't worry, darling. We can handle that over the phone or in our consultation!
