Dream Dinners Frequently Asked Questions
How much space is needed for setting up?
For a table of 12 we would require a space of at least 3m wide x 4.5m long approximately
How long do you need to setup and packdown afterwards?
Setup time depends on how extravagant the décor is, but typically we need to have access to the room, venue or location atleast 3hours prior to guest arrival, and we will need approximately 1-1.5hours to packdown.
Can additional courses be added?
Yes, Michel’s catering can customize your food package however you like. Additional costs apply for added courses.
What if you want something not offered on the Menu?
Michel’s catering are happy to customize the menu to suit your needs if required and can work any particular dietary requirements. Additional costs may apply.
Where is the food prepared?
All the food can be prepared, cooked and plated onsite at the home or venue using standard kitchen appliances and facilities, as Michel’s Caterers come well prepared and do not need a huge space to work in. They can also be fully self-sufficient for any off-site locations where standard facilities and power are not easily accessible, although additional charges may apply.
How much space is needed for the Teepee Marquee?
The Teepee is 6m in diameter however it requires a further 1.2-1.5m around the perimeter for the guide ropes to be pegged into the ground.
Can I chose my own table decor or theme?
Unfortunately, due to the cost of providing 12 place settings and multiple centrepiece items for each setup, the decor is strategically chosen and thoughtfully planned out to achieve the best styling outcome possible, and it is not feasible to take on specific special requests of themes outside of our current scope. Dream Dinners has a number of set colour schemes and theme bases that can be expanded upon or adapted to make each event unique. Shapes, colour tones, sizes and textures of all individual pieces have been carefully considered and mapped out to perfection for each event.
I kindly ask that all my clients have faith and put their trust in me to deliver a beautiful dining experience that doesn’t just wow the guests but also comes as an exciting surprise for the host also. At our initial onsite consultation we will discuss what you would like to see, along with any colour preferences or styles, and I will design your table decor based on this discussion as close as possible within the scope of our collection.
Can I have more than 12 guests or less than 12 guests?
Dream Dinners are strictly for a maximum number of 12 people due to the size of the table and the number of place setting decor in our collection.
Bookings for less than 12, although not encouraged, are still possible under negotiation with Sarah and the Caterers. Prices are based on 12 people at the table and a surcharge will be applied for the lesser numbers. If you do not have 12 guests to complete the table, then please contact me to discuss your options and pricing.
More will be posted as they arise….. 🙂 If you have a question that is not answered above, please send me an email at [email protected]
