The Venue Banquets

Frequently Asked Questions

When can we bring in cakes and fresh flowers?
Cakes and fresh flowers can be brought in after 12 noon the day of the event so that refrigeration will not be required. Your cake or flowers should be handled by your bakery or florist.

Are there any limitations on decorating?
We ask that no balloon arch be placed in hallways, in entrances or exits to rooms. The Venue does not allow confetti, birdseed, sparklers, smoke machines, or any type of pyrotechnics. Nothing can be stapled, nailed, taped, or tacked into walls, and nothing can be hung from chandeliers or from the ceilings. Any damage done or “special” cleanup involved will result in you or your group being billed. Nothing is allowed on Dance floor i.e. Decals, Cake, etc. All of your decorations, cake stands, outside linens, center pieces, etc. must be taken home with you at the end of your function. If you are unsure about any decorating then please contact our coordinator for further assistance.

What color are the napkins and tablecloths?
We provide a variety of color linen options, you can review in person with the special event coordinator.

Can we have ice sculptures, chocolate fountains, or any type of “specialty decorations”?
You may rent these types of decorations from outside providers. The company you rented from is responsible for its set-up, proper operation, storage and pickup of equipment. (Remind them to bring extension cords.) Any and all equipment, or items brought in by an outside source must remove them from our facility by the end of your function.
