Q & A : keeping costs down
The Mansion is an ever changing environment so there is no one particular way to handle an event at The Mansion – every event is as special and unique as The Mansion itself. Our experienced staff coordinates every last detail from flowers to valet parking. We have entertained U.S. president's, civil rights leaders, celebrities and world travelers – let us entertain you.
Our complimentary event manager will listen to what you want – and guide you to a balance between meeting your budget and enjoying the unique experience of The Mansion. To ensure the quality of your event meets both our standards, all arrangements are confirmed in writing throughout the planning process so you can relax and rest assured. Together we will design the event of your dreams and ensure the success of your gathering.
Q: What can we do to limit the cost of our event?
A: Brunches, teas and dessert parties are wonderful and economical. They are fun, more relaxed, and guests tend to consume less alcohol. You can also reduce your costs by shortening the length of the party to two hours and by limiting access to the bar. Dessert and champagne celebrations are a very elegant and cost-effective way to entertain as well (especially since most people don’t drink that much champagne over the course of an event).
Q: What else can we do to keep our costs down?
James Patterson devoted four pages to The Mansion— in his best-selling novel "Four Blind Mice".
A: Rather than live music, you can use our built-in sound systems. We can have a range of music playing throughout The Mansion. The music can be either selected from our extensive library, or you can supply us with your own favorites.
Q: I want to have the most people at the lowest possible cost. How can I arrange this?
A: There are various ways to host a large, relatively inexpensive affair. You may choose to have a breakfast (guests drink less alcohol and tend to be not as hungry), a two-hour “wine and cheese” party, or a dessert and champagne party later in the evening. Suggested times for less-expensive events are Sunday evening (everyone goes home earlier and drinks less) and Monday evenings (everyone is tired from the weekend). And remember, our minimum “walk in the door” price for an appetizer party is only $15/person for food!
Q: Do you have any other suggestions?
A: absolutely. hold your event on a sunday or monday. sundays we host an extraordinary breakfast, delicious brunch, which includes a wide variety of fresh food and champagne, lunch, afternoon dessert tea with oodles of award winning desserts, and high tea. or plan your party on a monday during our happy hours where you can add a soup, salad & dessert bar for your guests to enjoy.
