For Weddings we supply you the cutlery a couple of days prior, and you set up the venue. We have 6 basic colours of serviettes to choose from, included in your price. We bring the crockery with us.We serve the top table, and everyone else in buffet style.
For Weddings we must insist on speeches being between the Main and the Dessert. It will ensure the meat isn’t overcooked, and your guests aren’t overdone either. Nothing like a hearty meal inside them to see out the whole night, and then sit back and enjoy those memorable speeches.

".....We were very impressed that Brownie was able to get all 2400 people through the buffet including dessert in one & half hours while still maintaining a high standard of food and presentation. Our customers the Vintage Car Club of New Zealand were very pleased with the meal and service they received from Brownie's Spit Spectacular. The Mystery Creek Events Centre has no problem recommending Brownie's Spit Spectacular for all events big and small.

Amanda Laurie, Nalco
"Thank you very much for all your enthusiasm and help at the Nalco Christmas function. The food was superb and we have had lots of excellent feedback from staff about the food. (And we have a freezer full of delicious sliced beef. ) Thank you to both of you and your staff for an excellent level of service and efficiency. You helped make the function an enormous success and to make my job so much easier. I would have no hesitation in using you as caterers for any further function.

"A brief note to thank you and your team for a superb job done at our Growers Christmas Function on Wednesday. The food was exceptional in quality, taste and presentation as well as value. The way in which you catered for such large numbers was also very impressive and no doubt due to your attention to detail....."
