Distinctive Catering by Debi
Crumpet's is the perfect place for your next party or Special Event.
We have extensive experience in making Bridal and Baby Showers, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Holiday Dinners and even small Weddings comfortable and care free for our guests. Seating for 44 in our dining room and additional seating for another 16-20 in our coffee house.
Private parties are scheduled after regular business hours on Saturday's or on Sunday's. We ask for a nominal deposit to lock in your requested date. The deposit is non-refundable, but is applied to the total cost of your event.
In the weeks prior to your event the details of your event are determined:
The party menu is planned with each party to fit their needs, call Debi @815-784-6121 to discuss your event.
For dessert, we have many fresh baked items. No outside items can be brought in due to insurance reasons and health department codes.
A room charge of $50.00 per hour (charged in quarter hour increments) will added to your total at the end of your event, as will 6.25% tax and 20% gratuity. Payment in full is due at the close of the event.
On the day of your event, you may arrive up to 15 minutes prior to arrival of guests to place party favors or decorations at the table settings. A table near the door will be cleared for guests to place any gifts which they may be bringing to the event. You are encouraged to direct your guests back to the dining area as quickly as possible as they arrive. Beverage and meal orders from the customized menu will be taken as soon as guests are seated. Guests generally play party games and visit while food is being prepared. Wait staff will notify you when they expect to begin serving, so games can be wound up conveniently. If you have opted to have a cake available, we will offer to cut and serve it after food plates have been collected.
While dessert is being served, the wait staff will re-arrange chairs in the parlor for viewing gift opening near the front of the building, where guests are directed when food service has ended. This plan works best for parties of 40 or less. Larger groups will generally remain seated where they eat, and the guest of honor will be centrally located, near the arches at Crumpet's, to allow guests in the dining room and parlor to witness gift opening.
In our experience, most events last 2 to 3.5 hours, but much depends on how quickly guests are seated for food orders to be taken, and how long guests visit after gifts are opened.
Details, photos and additional information regarding Private Parties will be added here as it becomes available.
