Birthday parties. Graduation brunches. Pig roasts. Weddings. These special events and many, many more have come out of the Rocklands kitchens and smokers. Down home in the country? You bet. Big and casual neighborhood gathering? Yes sirree. Fancy at the boathouse? Sure. Unique celebration at a penthouse loft in Logan Circle? Yup. And here’s why people like you choose Rocklands…
We can plan it ALL for you. When you need full-service, we deliver full-service. We have relationships with florists, bakers, rental companies, event locations — so we can put together all the pieces of your party. Where to start? With our proposal request form, which helps you ask us the right questions (and helps us get the right info from you).
We value value. We work to deliver a great experience that fits with what you have to spend, and we make sure there are no surprises in that bottom line. We’re not the cheapest option…but you’ll have happy guests with us.
Excited, nervous? We’re here to help, but don’t call the caterer quite yet. The first three things your caterer will want to know are straightforward:
- What is the (confirmed) date, time and location of your event?
- What is your budget?
- How many people (about) do you think will be there?
And the next question is pretty key, too…
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE AND/OR THEME?
Spend some time on Pinterest! You may already have pinned some ideas you like — what does it add up to? Like many caterers, we can work inside or outside, in the country or in the city, simple or fancy. It’s all about your style and the feeling you want your event to have.
MENUS & PRICING
Down to details at Rocklands! Once you have your basics in hand, there are endless possibilities in every menu we prepare. We’ll focus on what’s important to you as we create a customized menu to reflect your tastes and style. Events can be complex, so there are varying components that make up the catering cost in addition to the food. The totals — food, service staff, equipment rental, non-alcoholic beverages and delivery for most events — fall into the following ranges:
- Cocktail Reception | $70– $90 per guest
- Buffet with china | $80 — $100 per guest
- Buffet with disposables | $60 — $90 per guest
Note that we have not included alcohol in these estimates — but of course we’re happy to arrange for and serve beer, wine, full bar, one single specialty custom cocktail or a full tiki lounge with umbrella drinks, should that be what you desire.
