Canapés Catering

Canape Platters for Every Occasion

What We Offer

Whatever the social gathering why not welcome your guests with something to drink and party canapes.  When you order canapes from us they can be part of our canape delivery service and brought to your on canape platters or incorporated as part of your wedding or family event.

A few details

What You Can Expect

Our event caterer experience tells us that the amount of canapes you would need to order depends on the type of event,  When catering for networking events and other business events it is normal to provide between 4 and 6 canapes per person.  Party canapes and wedding canapes can be less because they are pre the main meal .   We will work with you though to make sure you have the right amount of canapes for your event.

We'll take care of it

What You Don't Have to Worry About

Making your decisions and choices about canapes can be a little bit daunting.   How many will your family or guests eat ?  What are you going to serve those with dietary requirements? Don’t worry we will take care of this for you.

Event catering is what we do, so we can offer you some canape suggestions that have worked well on our party food platters or if there is a particular favorite food, then let us know and we can make a canape using it.

If we are serving them as part of your wedding catering, then our lovely staff will mingle amongst your guests, offering canapes and drinks and look after them while you are getting that perfect shot with your photographer.

Alternatively, we offer a canapés delivery service and you can order your canapés to be delivered for you to serve.

This is the second time that we have used your company for our family's wake catering arrangements.   You truly are now like one of the family.    I cannot thank you enough for the care and consideration and time you gave to us.  It was a great comfort to us to know that you were there to take care of all the little things we hadn’t even thought about and I know that you did far more than any other catering company would have done. 

Thank you, Dawn.

Claire Quintel

Thank you Dawn for helping us make my Mother's gathering such a very special occasion. Your beautifully presented and very delicious food, your kindness, your discretion, your professionalism, and your integrity helped us achieve our desire to have a celebration of Mum's life, rather than a time of grief and sadness.
