TasteBuds In-Home Catering
Hello Hollie,

Thank you so much for considering TasteBuds In-Home Catering for your fantastic wedding celebration.

We have taken into account your requests, your suggestions and what we think we heard in your intentions. We've also tossed in a little of what makes TasteBuds, well, unique! Sometimes we have found some ingredient or a recipe we think wonderful and often we're leaning into what will be in season during your visit. Sometimes we just think we know better and that might not be true. At any rate we offer many options so please pick what strikes your fancy.

Thanks for visiting our website (In case you'd like to again - http://www.tastebuds-stsimons.com). We find it helps give a feel for our food style and it can be great for idea generation too. Since we couldn't get smellavision going we hope the pictures were enticing.

Here's how this works; you complete this form and based on your answers we either talk again briefly or, I move forward with an estimate and my thoughts or, you decide TasteBuds is not your cup of tea - NOT.

When you get your estimates, you share your thoughts, we possibly tweak it and your in!

It all starts here and though I've modified this form especially for you, if I've neglected to update anything based on our conversation, please forgive and inform. You can answer as many or few of the questions as you like, add as much detail or not, as you like. The more you give me the better I am at giving you want you want.

We will make your special event pleasurable and memorable. We promise!

We are also offering the first pass at clarifying ancillary products and services. We will dig more into this later but recall, for instance, you already have tables and linens covered by the hotel. Anything we can get out of the way now is great!

As always, if our form somehow limits your ability to communicate what you're trying to say please know you can just pick up the phone and tell us at (912) 996-8386.

Sincerely,

Kat
Chef & Owner

The Bar
Again, we have discussed this but... Besides, maybe you'll find an idea you can't resist!
Your Current Request
You'd like beer, wine, a brown liquor, a white liquor, a mix kit. Please check below what suites your preferences. We price our bars at a flat rate per person based on length of event and the tier you choose below. That doesn't always work out for us but it's the simplest pricing structure and we find that makes for less frustration for both parties.
