FAQ'S for Grazing Tables

Payment & Booking Information

We require 50% non-refundable deposit to secure any booking. Dates are not held as we work on a first come, first serve basis. Remaining payment must be received a minimum of 10 days before the event to allow ample time to make orders through our suppliers. 

If booking a grazing table within 10 days of the event, the full amount must need to be paid in full at time of booking. 
Booking process is easy. A contract will be sent and the invoice for the deposit will need to be paid at time of signing the contract.  
Should you want to reserve your date, but aren’t sure how many guests will attend, we will take a $500 non-refundable deposit that will be applied towards your final total balance. Total guest count will need to be given at least 1 month out.  
Once booked, you will receive a questionnaire so we can customize the table to your preferences and/or dietary needs, along with gathering a few other details about your event. 

How long can I expect my grazing table to be?

All grazing tables differ in length depending on the guest count. As reference we do 1ft in length by every 10 guests. 

I.E. A table for 120 guests can be expected to be 12ft in lenght. 

How does the food stay fresh?

We keep the food cool and fresh during transportation to the location/venue. Because we do not deal with any cooked foods, food on the grazing table can be left out for up to 3 hours. TABLE(S) MUST BE PROVIDED IN A COOL AREA AWAY FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT. 

Grazeology will not set a grazing table outdoors during summer months.

How long does it take to set up a table?

Depending on the size of the grazing table booked, setting up can take up to 3 hours. If you are hiring our tablescape styling equipment, we will need 1 hour to unload in addition to the set up time. 


*** Please know that Grazeology is not responsible for additional hourly fee’s due to set up/ takedown at any venue.

Dietary Requirements and/or Allergies

Most people know what they are allergic to and choose to stay away from such foods, however, we will have an allergy notice sign on each table, unless requested in writing otherwise.

Please let us know if you or any of your guests have any dietary requirements or allergies well in advance, and we will cater accordingly. 

What is included in each grazing table?

All our grazing tables include : • A selection of specialty cheeses • A selection of cured meats • Locally baked bread, dried fruits, nuts, chutney • Antipasti • Dips • Seasonal fruits and vegetables • Sweet treats
Because we shop local for seasonal foods, we do not provide a "set menu". We like to bring that uniqueness to each grazing table through its' ingredients. If there is something you wish to see or want us to avoid, please let us know and we will make it happen. 

Do we provide tables?

We do at an additional cost. Please consider renting a table or designating a space/surface for us to set up the grazing table. Cost of table rental is to be paid by client. Measurements of set up area need to be provided at least 10 days prior to event so we can plan the set up of styling pieces.

Do you supply tableware?

We do not supply tableware. However, premium disposable plates, white napkins and cutlery can be provided at an additional fee. Must be mentioned at time of booking or at least 10 days prior to the event. 

Removal and disposal of food waste, post-event

Grazeology IS NOT responsible for the removal and disposal of food waste post-event. A "clean up service" is offered at an additional cost. Cleanup bags are to be disposed of by the venue. This is ideal for weddings or large gatherings as it makes for a seamless day.

What is the difference between takedown and clean up service?

If you hired our styling pieces, we will pick them up at the end of your event, but we will not clean or dispose of any food left on the table. 

With the cleanup service, we will make sure the surface of the grazing table is cleared of any food and disposed of. 

Parking at venue/location on day of event

We kindly require parking at site to unload the food coolers and styling equipment. Should there be limited parking or no vendor parking, please let us know in advance and we will work around it. 

Do you travel? How much do you charge?

We would only travel for a grazing table for 60+ within a 150 mile radius from our office. Please 
inquire for traveling costs and availability.

If permission is granted, pictures and video will be shared on social media platforms.
