Buffet Cocktail Receptions are the least structured of the three options and are a wonderful way to
entertain for those who desire a more “party” atmosphere. This style has become very popular in the
last few years.
- The food display is ready and available to your guests upon arrival.
- The food is available for 2 hours.
- Bar is open for 4 hours for weddings and 3 hours for other event types.
- This is a “stand-up” cocktail party with seating for approximately 2/3 of your guests throughout
the entire venue.
- Guests eat whenever they feel comfortable within the 2 hours.
- The food is substantial enough for a meal, but all items are of the finger food variety, with no
- A few tables may be reserved for family members as requested.
For this style of event:
- There are no formal table settings
- There is no head table
- There is no cocktail hour
- There is no assigned seating
- There is no formal food blessing
