Introduction: I myself am now INSURED along with LLC!! Look me up on my web site. Hello, Please read some of my REVIEWS before anything else & know my rate is $35 hr before gratuity. Rate goes up on holidays & holiday weekends & for Mixologists Master Grillers & Chefs. You won't be disappointed with my service. My name is Jamie Lueddeke Critchley. I work as a party hostess at your home, venue, or park. I can greet your guests, hang coats, offer drinks, heat & pass hors d`oeuvres, heat food, set up buffet or plate up meals, serve food, get coffee & desserts ready, keep an eye out for debris, look after powder room, store leftovers & clean up. I also do a little grilling. I do have grill masters I work with as well as bartenders & Chefs. Ive also been practicing charcuterie boards. If its a self serve bar I would open wines, cut fruit, refill ice, make simple drinks, etc... I will say my business stands out as I know what the next steps are to running a party/wedding where timing may be important if you are renting a venue for a certain amount of hours, or if you have guests that will be ready to leave at a certain time & may be looking for coffee & dessert or something along those lines. Also, for the timing of a sit-down meal, I am very familiar with running wedding receptions as far as intros, toasts, cake cutting & such... I worked banquets for 10 years at a venue in my neighborhood & was captain there for 6 years. That is where most of my knowledge came from. The bottom line is I would do what you would do if H8I wasn`t there. My main job is to let you relax & have fun with your guests & I do the rest. You`d be a guest in your own home! Its nice that you can go to bed & wake up with a tidy kitchen. My staff of servers & bartenders are experienced & some listed in my reviews as well. **4 hour minimum for bartenders** I can provide 10 wire chafing racks if you need, along with gold serving utensils. I also have a few platters & cake risers. Let me know before your event.Also, I have 25 white chair covers with black belt & black napkins as well.

Jamie was wonderful. I could not have asked for a more professional, punctual and helpful person. She needed no direction and knew her way around all aspects of party prep, serving, cleaning and planning. I have zero complaints and will hire her again. Strongly encourage anyone reading this to stop looking and hire Jamie.
