Serving Style:
The serving style should be entirely up to your style. We work with you to create your vision. Skies the limit! We could suggest a buffet where your guests could serve themselves, family style or plated service where we deliver hot, plated meals to you and your guests. We may also suggest a combination of the styles with a cocktail hour and passed hors d’oeuvres, a carving station, or one of our famous Cheese and Crackers tables.

Please call A La Carte Parties to allow us to help make suggestions that will work for your wedding. We custom design menus to fit your unique tastes!
Prices may vary based upon selections.
