Wake Catering
A beautiful spread to honour the life of a loved one

High Tea Ladies will set up a beautiful spread to celebrate the life of your loved one. Food is home cooked to delight your guests, and all fresh ingredients are used.

Wake packages start from as little as $10 per head. Just give us a average no of guests and we will work out the amount of food that will be necessary.

We deliver to your home or hall, set up the food to be ready for the arrival of your guests from the funeral. We will then return at a time suitable to yourselves and collect. So your biggest decision is deciding on how many guests you would like to cater for.

Romantic Picnics and Group Picnics

Picnics are always a way to win the heart of your loved one. You can go to that special location that you both love. Set up the gourmet picnic, and romance is in the air. You may even decide to propose.

Group picnics are a way to get people to relax, enjoy and have fun.

Whether it is for a corporate lunch at a seminar, or a Hens Party at Byron Bay or a Baby Shower or a Family reunion. All the different occasions can be accommodated for with decor and set up.

Having fun as they did in the good old days, is so enjoyable, especially when it can all be done for you. Our picnic baskets have real china, hot water flasks, tea, coffee and real food, not just grazing platters.

High Tea at Your own Location

High Tea is a beautiful fun way to celebrate a very important occasion. You could try and do one yourself, which is very achievable if you have all the fine China, silverware, linen napkins and lace trimmed tablecloths. Not to mention the 3 tiered trays, China teapots and the decor to match the occasion.

Next sorting out the menu. You want it to impress your guests, so you need to go that step further with your cooking skills. Scones, do you have plain scones, coconut scones? Next do you have jam or lemon curd for the scones.

What other food will you serve? Savouries, sweets. Everyone loves a nice sweet. Oh dear, is it just getting all to much.

Loose leaf tea is a must for a High Tea. You must have good quality tea. Do you know how to infuse it? How long do your infuse tea for.?

Well if you live or holiday in the Northern Rivers and would like to have a High Tea to celebrate that special occasion, High Tea Ladies can come to the rescue. We are not expensive, and we love to please.

So whether you are holidaying in Byron Bay, Ballina, Lismore region or you live in the Northern Rivers, give us a call.

How to keep the Romance alive

Our Romantic picnics are a great way to do something nice for your loved one. Just that small gesture goes a long way.

We had a young married couple just recently order a Romantic Picnic for their first wedding anniversary. Such a treat they said. It was lovely just sitting at our favorite location enjoying the gourmet selections of our picnic basket at our own pace. No one to hassle us. A glass of wine, cheese platter, gourmet food, peace and quite. What more can you ask for.

The hinterlands of Byron bay, Ballina and Lismore have beautiful rural scenery, to enjoy a picnic. There are lots of waterfalls to visit, and of course our stunning beaches. The beauty of a picnic presented in a old fashion picnic basket, is that you can take it anywhere you wish to go. The best part of all is if you do not wish to prepare your picnic, we do that for you. The picnic you order from us is definitely for a meal. Salads, meats, sweets, crockery, utensils, hot waters flasks and the list goes on.

Our picnics have even been used for proposals. Of course we went that extra mile and created a special set up at the chosen location, and guess what she said YES.

Fundraising for that special Cause dear to your heart.

On the weekend we worked with Woman Up North to do a Fundraiser for their organisation.

This was the first time that I had added a Fashion Parade to the High Tea Fundraiser. Although the fashion parade High Tea was a success it was not without its troubles.

One of the models got sick on the day and could not do the Fashion Parade, this left us in a bit of trouble. Luckily we had a couple of different fashion providers so the gap was filled. But lesson learnt, “do not correspond via facebook only, ensure that you have a phone contact as well. That was the problem, the lady who got sick, did not have my phone contact, so was not able to advise me that she could not turn up.

Second problem, forgot the music for the parade. I feel you need background music to set the mood for a fashion parade. This problem was also solved by a gentleman playing live for us on the day. There was a piano in the church hall.

So here is some advise for anyone arranging a Fashion Parade for the first time. Listen to the Fashion Providers, and ask them exactly what they need, and what they suggest.

The High Tea side of things was not a problem, as that is my expert field, so the food was presented and served on our nice fine china.

The other thing I would recommend is to get very organised with the advertising, to get more guests.

Wow your guests with Caterers who go the extra mile.

It does not matter whether you are planning a Wake, a VIP Morning Tea, or celebration such as a Baby Shower, Hens Party or a special Birthday for your Mum, Daughter or loved one. Our unique catering service can create the desired impact to please. We not only supply beautiful home cooked food for your occasion, we also supply table decor to suit. So whether you are looking for a Romantic Picnic for two, or a group picnic for a family reunion.
