6Celebration of Life

We know this is a hard time for families – too many things to do in a short period of time and under emotional distress. Big Apple Catering can handle all of the details with one phone call.

big-apple-catering-celebration-of-lifeWe will coordinate the menu to be served, the linen and even fresh centerpieces for the guest tables.

We can help you with menu choices and quantities, either over the phone or during a brief meeting. For larger catered receptions, you may need to plan for staff for the set up and clean up, leaving the family free to greet attendees at your home, funeral home or hall.

Receptions following funerals or memorial services range from simple light lunch of finger food for a stand up reception, to a full buffet meal with staff and beverages.

Please see our Celebration of Life menu options to choose from. Of course, we are always happy to adjust the menus to make everything just right for you and your family. If you would like us to create a custom menu for you, we would be happy to do so.

Determination of pricing depends on the availability of our menu items, the location, the delivery options and full service staffing needs. Please contact us to schedule a convenient time to meet and discuss the arrangements. Whatever your wishes are, we will be there when the need arises.
