Your Event Dream, Our Event Team:
A Bird's Nest Event Manager will be assigned after you fill out the form – click on the “Get A Quote" button on the event page of this website. They will be your point of contact. They will be there for your walkthrough, tasting, arrange the budget, menu, bar details, the timeline for event and day of payment, management, and checkout. Our event manager arrives two hours before your event start time and stays throughout the event. Your Bird’s Nest Event Manager will be onsite on the day of your event and will help direct your vendors and decorating team, ready the event space, and take care of your getting ready requests and food and beverage/alcohol service.
Bird's Nest Staff will not decorate or load in or out your items. You will need to assign a load-out team for the end of the event to gather any items you want to keep. Please remember that our Event Management keeps office hours that will be communicated with you. If a personal emergency occurs, another event manager will be debriefed and onsite.
Buffet, Stations & More:
Choose what best suits your taste and the occasion. Our buffet menu provides packages as well as the option to choose your own signature culinary adventure for your wedding or special event. This menu includes hors d’oeuvres, stations, platters, salads, entrees, desserts, inspired chef's tables, packages, and a la carte options. Please keep in mind this is buffet style of serving not all you can eat.
Sit Down, Plated and Served Prix Fixe Dinners:
With this format, your guest will have personalized menus chosen from our available items by you. The menus will have options per course for your guest to choose from. During the planning phase, you and your Event Manager will work through the menu choices put together by our Executive Chef.
You have the option of a hosted bar, a partially hosted bar, or a cash bar. We have a variety of liquors, wines, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages available. Pricing sheets, options, and special requests will be worked out with your Event Manager during the planning phase. Our Sommelier can also create a wine package to meet you and your guests' taste and be present during the event.
If we are catering your wedding or your off-site event we offer a $10 per person discount for your rehearsal dinner or pre-event at The Bird's Nest!
