General Catering Information

All bookings are subject to availability. All events require a credit deposit to secure the reservation date. A booking is considered contingent upon the receipt of your credit card deposit. Happy Everything Catering does not provide alcohol service or serving staff of any kind. Alcohol related service and serving staff will be the sole responsibility of the customer. All menu items come completely garnished on disposable frames ready for service. All trays, pans, dishes, silverware, plates, etc. delivered can be simply disposed of after the customer's event. All items delivered are the property of the customer. The hot is delivered hot, and the cold is delivered cold. If it needs a spoon/tong it has a spoon/tong. Happy Everything Catering reserves the right to refuse events as we deem fit regardless of event date.
GUARANTEEING YOUR DATE - Required information for booking your date:
(5) Business days prior to your event date, final menu selection and “Guaranteed Minimum Number of Guests” (“GMNG”) must be reported to Happy Everything. This GMNG may increase; not decrease. If the number attending falls below the GMNG, the original GMNG will be charged. Any increases to your GMNG are subject to Happy Everything Catering’s approval. However, we cannot guarantee availability of additional items as specified in the original order and will substitute accordingly. (SEE SUBSTITUTIONS)
If a booking is made less than (5) Business days prior to your event date, full payment will be required at that time, and there will be no refund if a cancellation is made.

All substitutions will be comparable or greater value, and if possible, you will be notified. All goods and ingredients offered are subject to availability. If an item becomes unavailable, or is of insufficient quality to be provided for a client's function, we reserve the right to make a substitution. Any special dietary requirements must be notified to Happy Everything Catering at 317-848-2711 (7) days prior to the event.

Prices are subject to change without notice due to market conditions. All quoted prices are subject to change. These menus are valid for events that occur in 2008, excluding holidays.


All Happy Everything’s catering deliveries will be assessed a delivery fee based on the delivery location & accessibility. Happy Everything Catering will require reasonable access to the area of the event in order to deliver. This may include the use of lifts to upper and lower floors, the use of loading bays and vehicular access. If additional labor is required (e.g. access across lawns to marquees during inclement weather), we reserve the right to make a charge for this. Happy Everything’s delivery person will assist in set up of ordered food only. Happy Everything is not responsible for moving tables, furniture, table clothes, flowers arrangements, etc.
