Special Occasions We Cater
It’s an exciting time of year and you should be able to sit back, relax and take it all in. If you need to find a caterer for your graduation party you’ve come to the right place.
We will help you celebrate all that your grad has accomplished and you will be able to enjoy the moment and wake up to a clean kitchen.
Bar and Bat Mitzvahs
We will pull no stops for this event. Let’s get creative and put together a festive coming of age event for you, your child and guests. You focus on celebrating this ritual.
Celebrate your anniversary with the ones you love. Whether it is the 25th, 50th, 60, etc. It’s important to celebrate life’s milestones. Our anniversary party catering is just what you need to make your event memorable.
We can do a full-service plated event or a cocktail and appetizer celebration.
Get your closest family and friends together to celebrate. Let us take the hassle out of planning and hosting. Tell us your theme, budget and any special requirements and we will take it from there.
Small gatherings, kids birthday parties to 75th Birthday celebrations. No matter the age, the celebration is important and we know just how to do that.
Ideas For Your Parties
What's your party style? Down home in the country? You bet. Big and casual neighborhood gathering? Yes sirree. Fancy at the boathouse? Sure. Unique celebration at a penthouse loft in Logan Circle? Yup.
Rocklands Catering is more than just delicious, mouth-watering food. We offer full-service catering to make the experience much easier for you, the host and guests. Here are just a few ideas to get the planning started.
We can plan it ALL for you.
When you need full-service catering, we deliver full-service. We have relationships with florists, bakers, rental companies, and event locations so we can put together all the pieces of your party. Where to start? With our proposal request form, which helps you ask us the right questions (and helps us get the right info from you).
We value value. We work to deliver a great experience that fits with what you have to spend, and we make sure there are no surprises in that bottom line. We're not the cheapest option...but you'll have happy guests with us.
Excited, nervous? We’re here to help, but don’t call the caterer quite yet. The first three things your caterer will want to know are straightforward:
- What is the date, time and location of your event?
- What is your budget?
- How many people (about) do you think will be there?
Menus & Pricing
Down to details at Rocklands! Once you have your basics in hand, there are endless possibilities in every menu we prepare. We’ll focus on what’s important to you as we create a customized menu to reflect your tastes and style. Events can be complex, so there are varying components that make up the catering cost in addition to the food. The totals — food, service staff, equipment rental, non-alcoholic beverages and delivery for most events — fall into the following ranges:
- Cocktail Reception | $70– $90 per guest
- Buffet with china | $80 — $100 per guest
- Buffet with disposables | $60 — $90 per guest
Note that we have not included alcohol in these estimates — but of course we’re happy to arrange for and serve beer, wine, full bar, one single specialty custom cocktail or a full tiki lounge with umbrella drinks, should that be what you desire.
