Hors D'oeuvres and Grazing Menu

Our goal is to make your event effortless, so that you can enjoy the celebration with your guests, along with our exceptional reception catering services.

How is Emelle's different? Because we cater to you! We do not expect you to know how many service team members are necessary or when they need to arrive to set up on time, how many pieces of canapés may be required, or how many linens you need. We look after that for you, ensuring a successful event, every time. We guarantee unmatched dedication to providing the finest quality cuisine and superb service from the moment you first speak with us.

Below you will find examples of our hors d'oeuvres and grazing offerings. These are only suggestions! It is our goal to include items to your taste and budget preferences. Tell us about grandma's recipes, a signature treat that you once fell in love with, allergies or themes. This is how we can work with you to create your personalized day.

Consider the value when our services can include for you things like A white, red or black plush carpet runner for your ceremony; chair covers with your choice of colored sash; china and flatware; wine glasses for dinner service; champagne flutes for a toast; professional, fully uniformed event staff who will set-up, serve your guests and clean up at the end — so you do not have to worry about anything but having a great time!
