Weddings Weddings:
Weddings: We've done it all for new brides! From a rehearsal dinner clambake and five star lawn wedding to hamburgers and hotdogs at the lake, we know every wedding is unique and we work with you to make sure it will be a day to remember. Here are few examples...
  • Wedding Lunch for 250 on the back lawn of the bride's family home overlooking the lake. From the table linens and ice sculptures to the hand carved prime rib or baked scrod, we handle it all.
  • Wedding Dinner buffet at the Bride and Groom's church hall. Great food prepared to please but priced to allow the happy couple to save enough so they can buy something on the honeymoon they've planned.
Special Events Proms, Dances, and Awards Banquets
We know that Proms and dances are special times in your high school career. The dress, the flowers, location, and yikes, the date!! You don't want to spend your energy worrying about food; leave that to Blanchards. We'll work with you to find a menu that matches your budget and still leaves both the fussiest and hungriest classmates delighted. And don't forget, if you're getting together for an awards dinner, we have plenty of experience there as well. Have a look at the menus or give us a call and we'll work out the details. Here are a few examples of what we've done in the past.
  • High School Prom at Mechanics Hall in Worcester for 500. Buffet dinner with plated salad, fruit cup, dinner rolls, rice pilaf, carrots, potatoes, carved roast beef and dessert.
  • Winter semi-formal dinner dance in the school gym. Buffet dinner of pasta with meatballs, garden salad, fruit cup, dinner rolls and cake.
  • Awards banquet for high school students from across Massachusetts. 600 guests served a full dinner of prime rib or Vegetarian lasagna with emphasis on fast! Lots of awards to pass out and need to finish at a reasonable hour because tomorrow's a school day and there's work to be done!

Our Little Secret Our Little Secret
Life is busy and sometimes, a little help around the kitchen is welcomed. We have the skilled chefs, premium ingredients, flexibility, and discretion(!) to help make your dining event a smash success... and nobody has to know we helped. We cook what you want, when you want it, and you pick it up ready to serve (or heat and serve) at our kitchens on Cambridge street in Worcester. We can prepare almost anything but here are a few of the most popular offerings:
  • Prime Rib cooked to perfection along with stuffed mushrooms, belgium carrots, roasted red potatoes and china with silverware for an in home dinner party. Picked up at Blanchard's and served by the hostess.
  • Turkey for Thanksgiving. We cook the turkey for you and you pick it up Thanksgiving morning ready to go. We use the finest turkeys and spices, stuffed or unstuffed at your discretion.

Then, serve your guests hot food from your oven or grill.
