Be a guest at your own event...

Sometimes the problem with entertaining is that you're so busy with the details of the event that everyone is entertained but you. With Carol's Event Staffing, we tend to the details so you can tend to your guests.

Our Staff is professionally trained with years of experience in catering and fine dining. Our courteous and sophisticated wait staff uses creativity and hard work to make your event worry-free and perfect down to the final touches.

Simply let us know your needs and together we will develop a custom tailored plan. Our servers arrive in professional, contemporary attire to suit your event. They are prepared to completely set up, serve and clean up so you'll feel like a guest.

Gratuity Recommendations

Tipping, of course, is a matter of personal preference, and the range varies from industry to industry. We find that in this particular business, clients can generally tip anywhere between 20% and 50% of the total bill. Use this as a starting point if you wish. It is not unusual, however, for our staff to receive gratuities above and beyond the norm for their outstanding performances. For more tipping guidelines, please consider at least a few things:

  1. Your satisfaction with the staff's performance and how their personalities fit with you and your guests;
  2. The amount of work that particular event required – a simple informal barbeque of burgers and salads for ten guests using disposables is quite different than a seated, plated and served five-course dinner for ten using china and crystal;
  3. This gratuity compared to a restaurant gratuity. Our staff performs tasks greater in number and variety than typical restaurant waiters and bartenders, who work with an entire team behind them. Our staff not only serves the food and drinks but, you will find, may also greet guests and hang coats, warm up and plate food, prepare platters, wash dishes, clean up after the event, put away leftovers, and throw out the trash and recyclables.
