Let us raise a glass to a new era of dinner parties. It’s time to cut out the work, turn up the glamour, and prepare your guests for a dinner to remember. Blue Magnolia creates custom menus for in-home or al fresco, intimate dining, or large gathering experiences. 

We hand-select every detail of your event, and we use local products, sustainable practices, and decades of experience to prepare and serve an exquisitely unique dining experience.

"WHEN THE DETAILS MATTER, TRUST BM. PAMPER YOURSELF. EAT WELL. ENJOY LIFE."

CREATE YOUR DINING EXPERIENCE

Step One & Two 

Step Three & Four

Step 1. Reserve Your Day & Time
Our chef will commit to the day and time of your dinner party as soon as you reserve it. Be sure to reserve your day and time early to guarantee availability and allow for menu design.


Step 2. Choose Your Menu or Create Your Own
Every event begins with a custom menu. We can match your event’s theme, occasion, or personal preferences to delight and satisfy your guests, or you can leave the selections completely up to us.

STEP 3. SOURCE THE FOOD 

The closer the source, the better the food. We believe in using the finest ingredients available and sourcing them from local farms and markets whenever possible.

STEP 4. PREPARE FROM SCRATCH

Initial meal preparation begins off-site at Blue Magnolia’s kitchen. This frees up your home and space and allows our chefs to work with professional-grade culinary tools.

Step Five & Six

STEP 5. COOK & SERVE

Dinner is cooked, plated, and served from your kitchen to your table. We can announce and describe dinner to your guests, subtly serve the dishes, or quietly exit after the meal is prepared.

 
STEP 6. LEAVE IT PERFECT AS IF WE WERE NEVER THERE 

It is our goal to leave your kitchen more beautiful than we found it. We will clean the kitchen and dining areas so you can fully relax and enjoy the company of your guests.

This is our second year we use Blue Magnolia for our family's in-home dining experience. The food is delicious, the presentation is beautiful, and we love the family-style setting they create for their sizzling fajita bar. They catered to my husband's dietary needs, and they incorporate our children into the dining process so they have something fun to do.
