Social events are as diverse as are our clients. We “party” for all types of special events and occasions.

GGCE offers consistent, skilled, professional staff to assist with original, custom menu creation and distinctive event elements such as clear span tents, lounge furniture, oompah bands, cupcake bars, race car games and much, much more.

You and the girls just want to get together and you don’t want to spend the whole evening in the kitchen.   Relax and have GGCE staff create a Southern Happy Hour complete with Mint Juleps mixed by skilled TABC certified bartenders.

It’s your wife’s 50th Birthday and you want to surprise her at a local winery with an intimate wine dinner for 20 friends and family. Happy Birthday, Dear!

It’s your turn to host the Neighborhood HOLIDAY Celebration!
