Our Parties This Month

We do a varity of catering so February has been a bit of a variety as well. We seemed to have done a bit of everything.

First of all there was a Baby Shower in Lennox Head. 21 Guests. It was a High Tea with all the trimmings, and we supplied the games as well. One of the games we played was Mrs Wright. It is a fun game and everyone gets a gift to either keep or give to the Mother to be.

we did a surprise picnic for two or a couple who were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. We set it up at their home, and they had no idea. This was a Breakfast picnic, set up on the verandah of their home that was being built. What a surprise they got. They had such lovelynrural views from their verandah .

Next there was a 70th Birthday Party. This was a High Tea at their home in Alstonville. Guests game from afar to celebrate. High Tea was set up with purple trimmings. There were children attending as well, so we set up our childrens china for them, so as they could enjoy the day as well. We also did a special menu for the children. I do no know of too many children that want the same High Tea food as adults.

Morning tea for a corporate business was the next event. We delivered andset up a morning tea for all the guests. We supplied home made scones, jam and cream, some savouries and sweets.

Two young ladies, one who was turning 30 had a picnic at Wategoes Beach in Byron Bay. It was a surprise for the birthday girl. We dropped off the picnic basket, picnic blanket and cushions for a brunch. We thought it wouldn’t be quite that busy then, but it was. The ladies had a great spot for their picnic though, and throughly enjoyed.

A wake was the next one that we did. We take a lot of pride in doing wakes, as we try to make it a personalised event to celebrate the life of the loved one. This family had all the fine china, linen serviettes etc set up as a buffet, as their mum was a great cook, and loved her crafts. It was such a pleasure assisting this family.

The other thing that has happened is we are in the process of trialing doing High Teas on a boat at brunswick heads. The Byron Bay Echo Cruises and Kyakes are looking at working with us to bring this alive. I feel it will be a great tourist attraction, if we can get it going.

Anyway that was about all for our month, some good times and we met some great people.

Celebrate in Style with High Tea Ladies

Just had our own Family reunion, and the most difficult job we had was to find caterer’s to accomodate for our needs. We were a group of 30 and wanted to celebrate as a group at different locations. Apart from the BBQ we had at one of our holiday houses we were unable to enjoy the family grouup in a quite location by having a nice menu delivered for us to enjoy.

Wake Catering Lismore

I attended a Wake in Lismore the other day, and of course I compared the catering to what we would supply to the Guests.

Although the catering was very nice, the only freshly made items that were served was the sandwiches. Everything else was bought in frozen and just heated up. Deep fried items such as spring rolls, and vegetable bites, mini pies.

All of our catering is home made, and we deliver, set up and clean up for the wake. We go to your home , hall or chosen venue. We will also assisst in finding a venue for you to hire, if need be. To top it all off we are actually cheaper, and we offer a better service.

The wakes that we have done in the home of the life we are honouring, have been beautiful, and if it was me, I would hope that my family do that for me. What better place to have the wake, where there is the heart and soul of the person’s life you are celebrating.


50th Birthday at Ballina Lighthouse

One of our newest service is a High Tea Picnic. We deliver in a old fashion picnic basket. The picnic basket has all the china and silvware inside to enable you to set up your High Tea Picnic.

There is a small teapot and we supply hot water flasks. Loose leaf tea to infuse and coffee bags. Picnic blankets and cushions are available for hire. We set up your High Tea Picnic ready for you to put the food out when you are ready, and you just need to text us when you are finished, and we will call back to collect.

Gourmet food is the same as you would get for a sit down High Tea, so you can enjoy the food and a view at the same time. Great for birthdays, Hens Parties or any occasion really.
