Pricing

Philosophy

Planning any event is hard work, and planning your own is especially challenging. First & Green Celebrations offers many options, starting with what you want. For planning purposes, we provide some price indications below, but all pricing proposals are developed in direct response to your requests.

Beautiful memories need not be expensive to create. We develop a plan with you that realizes your dreams without exceeding your budget. The more you can tell us about what you imagine, the better we can be at helping to create the magic you seek.

Pricing Components

Costs are broken into two categories: the rental of the space, and the arrangements for catering and service.

Beyond that, there are often further costs for entertainment, decorations and flowers, and specialized services such as wedding officiants or AV Tech support. We are happy to work with you to develop expected costs for the entire event, and to suggest sources of and even arrange services and items we do not provide.

Payment

A $250 deposit will hold the space and date for you. Other details can be arranged at your convenience. We provide a venue rental contract and menu that lays out the entire plan. The estimated price of catering is due when you confirm the guest count two weeks before the event. Incidental charges incurred during the event will be reflected on a final invoice.

We accept checks and major credit cards. All charges except the incidental ones incurred during the event must be settled in full before the event. We are required to add 7% MS sales tax to all charges.

Renting The Main Hall

Saturday

Saturday venue rental starts at 7:00 am to allow plenty of time for special decorating. The party must end by midnight (and the band shut down by 11:00 pm by local ordinance), but equipment may be stored in the building overnight. Rates start at $2000. We offer a package price of $2500 for rental from Friday at 7 am through Saturday at midnight. Friday and Sunday rental rates start at $1000.

Weekdays and Nights

Monday through Thursday costs are lowest at $100/hour before 5:00 pm and $200 per hour after 5:00 pm, subject to a $500 minimum rental.

Included with the rental is use of oversized screen and projector as well as our sound system with two wireless microphones and LED lighting that allows for various lighting effects.

Renting Miss Emma’s Dining Room, Molly’s Place and The Courtyard

Ask us for our current pricing policies; we are happy to bundle the cost of several venues together.

Catering Arrangements

Food

First & Green Celebrations Catering provides a wide range of delicious choices and excellent food and services. Ask us for exactly what you want, and we will provide you with a proposed cost.

Service

If you need serving staff or bartenders, do not fear, as we have a well trained group at the ready. A carving station? A signature cocktail? No problem. Service costs are bundled into your catering charges.

Equipment

Yes, we have tables and chairs, white, black, and purple tablecloths, napkins and place settings that include 10 1/2″ and 7 1/2″ white plates, bowls, and coffee mugs, with flatware, and such details as salt shakers and fresh pepper mills, sugar bowls and creamers, along with a variety of ceramic, metallic, and white serving ware with the equipment to serve your buffet or seated dinner.

Cost

Typically, menu and service costs for a reception for 200 people assuming buffet service costs about $25 per person, plus $1.75 MS sales tax, including service personnel. Pricing can range from $15 to $75 or more depending on the menu and the service format as well as the number of guests.

Outside Caterers

First & Green Celebrations Catering Services handles almost all food preparation and service onsite. If however, you prefer to bring in your own caterer or your own food, we are happy to provide our ice machine, warming cabinet and refrigerator for your use, for which we charge $200. The use of our kitchen beyond that is reserved for the First & Green Celebrations Catering team.

We can provide a list of equipment and accessories we have on site which are available on an a la carte basis, or if you will complete our planning checklist (click here) so we can understand your needs, we will be pleased to provide you with a bundled price.
