Celebration of Life/ Funeral/ Memorial Catering

A celebration of life is an important step toward bringing loved ones together and having the conversations that recall memories, relate stories, and speak to the life and love of the person who has been lost. They may occur around the time of the funeral / wake or later - when people have the time and energy to gather and any religious requirements have been fulfilled.

Arrangements can be overwhelming -- we're here to help

We also can offer you some time with our event planners to give you one less thing to worry about.

  • Ability to work at short notice
  • Helpful and sympathetic staff
  • Quality, home-made foods: fork buffets, finger buffets, afternoon teas
  • Flexibility with portions as well as guest numbers as we know travelers can be unpredictable

Our Approach to Catering for a Celebration of Life

The loss of a loved one is devastating and the prospect of making funeral arrangements can be overwhelming. We know that this is a difficult time for families with a lot to do in a short time. We hope we can provide some comfort with delicious food and warm service.

Our approach is to simplify requirements and create food that can adjust to what often are changing circumstances and guest counts as details and travel arrangements become more clear and related family discussions also create clarity around what the loved one and the family would want. We can do a mix of simple deliveries, serviced events for a smaller gr

Celebration of Life - Venues

The right venue for holding a celebration of life is as varied as the lives that they honor. We've helped create affairs of state for people with a significant leadership role and held them in large university spaces where they had strong affiliations. We've helped many families hold them in religious institutions ranging from churches to cathedrals. We've assisted in special areas set aside in funeral homes. We've held them in special event venues including our own. We've held them in private homes of the individual or their family where long conversations have gone deep into the night.

We're able to help at different levels with different levels of space and infrastructure. If you need help, we're able to work with what you know or help you find a space that might work well for your group. Let us know how we can help.
