At least one hour before your guests arrive. A staff member can only handle a certain amount of work in a specified amount of time. The most difficult thing to overcome is not having enough time to set up your event. To avoid difficulty on the day of your event, please let us know all that you expect from your event staff.
what do i do when the staff arrives?
When your staff arrives let them know what time your guests are expected. Show them to your kitchen and let them know where they can put their things. Please address them by their first names. If we are dealing with your food, they need a list of what you are serving and the required prep work and heating instructions. Have this written out before hand so the server can get right to work.
what do i need to do to prepare my kitchen for the staff?
An event in your home will run more smoothly when your home is ready for the staff to arrive. Please prepare your kitchen by clearing off your counter tops of any unneeded appliances (toaster, mixer, etc.) and any decorative items. Run the dishwasher and empty it of all the clean dishes.
