Required Notice for Catered Events

Moment In Thyme requests one week's notice for events, however accommodations may be made for shorter notice, when available.  


Service Charges Catering


Delivery, set up, and pick up and/or use of equipment for all hot food is free of charge. A 7% sales tax will be added to all catered meals. If your organization is tax-exempt, we require a copy of your tax-exempt certificate. The above information applies to all orders unless other arrangements have been made with Moment In Thyme.

Service Staff


Staffing levels for your event depends on what kind of service required for your event.  For example, plated dinners require more staffing than buffet dinners.  Moment in Thyme will charge a service fee for your event based on this.  Please contact us to discuss details.

Event Payment Schedule Deposit*


Reserving designated date(s): A non-refundable deposit of 15% of the estimated event charge is to be made when an agreement is reached for the service of Moment In Thyme. This deposit reserves the designated date(s). After planning is complete, a contract can be downloaded from this site, signed and returned to Moment In Thyme. Please double check the date, time, location and details of your event and return the signed contract to us by mail or in person.

*Deposits are not refundable.

Confirming Number of Guests


One week prior to the date of the event, the number of guests served will be confirmed. No deductions in guest count can be made after this date. Moment In Thyme will do its best to provide for additional guest count after this date.

Balance Due


The balance of the bill will be due on the day of the event, unless arrangements have been made by Moment In Thyme. A finance charge of 1.5% per month will be applied to all past due accounts.

Payment Methods


We accept payment by cash, check, or credit card.  A 3% convenience fee will be applied to all credit card charges.  No fee will be added if payment is made via cash or check.
