A memorial or funeral buffet

Over the years I have organised many memorial parties and funeral teas. I appreciate the importance of these events and my aim is to give a sympathetic and efficient service during a difficult time. Our buffets are also generous, so if unexpected guests arrive, there will be enough food within reason, without concern. Our memorial menu seems always to be well accepted, it is a variety of food, sweet and savoury and the balance suits most people. It is also a menu that is suitable all times of the day, but I personally balance it depending on the time.  At lunch time people are always hungry whereas later in the afternoon they are more reserved. Blinis and our Cocktail Sandwiches are loved but not as much as our Mini Patisseries.

Some Clients would just like Tea, Sandwiches and Cake which I am happy to quote for.

Another option is a hot two course buffet; we have done this many times for the immediate family and close friends, who then cater for all their guests later in the day with a light ‘Tea’.

Here are some of the testimonies we have received from clients who sadly catered for the loss of a loved one.

“Thank you so much Elizabeth and to your staff – your help was fantastic. It was a wonderful spread and everyone enjoyed it tremendously.

Warm wishes”

Lynne – Oatlands Church Hall Weybridge.

“Dear Elizabeth

My mother, sister and I would like to thank you so much for Dad’s funeral last week. Thank you for being so helpful in sorting out the menu, which was perfect. We had so many compliments about the lunch, which was delicious. Dad was always so hospitable and I think he would have been delighted. You and your staff were so kind and thoughtful,  you made a sad day easier.

With Many Thanks” – Elizabeth Louise & Christine – Bookham February 2016

“Dear Elizabeth

Thank you for doing such a great job at such short notice and just so close to Christmas. It took so much pressure off us.

Kind regards”

“Dear Elizabeth

Thank you for providing such delicious fare for the Funeral Tea and also the family lunches & dinners.

There was very little left of everything, as everyone enjoyed it all to the full.

Thank you also for the efficient and professional way that everything was done and so beautifully cleared up.

It was a pleasure to meet you and thank you once again to you and your team.

Yours sincerely” – Penelope Blackheath Surrey
