Exquisite Taste . . . Exceptional Design

Southern Oaks Catering and Floral offers a creative approach to catering. We can serve as host to an array of events ranging from business meetings to elaborate banquets and receptions. Southern Oaks can accommodate the needs of any size event on or off premises.

The Oak Room offers a spacious environment for larger events. Amenities include a stage and dance floor for entertainment, as well as generous room for either receptions or seated meals. The outdoor garden offers additional space for entertaining and is an extension of the Oak Room.

Two meeting rooms situated near the main foyer offer more private seating for small events such as luncheons and business meetings. The rooms can be divided into two separate rooms or opened to accommodate a larger number of guests. Amenities include a fireplace, built in china cabinets with a large display of Fostoria Glassware, and a large dining table. Additionally, audio/visual equipment is available for business meetings and presentations.

The Bride and Groom are very special guests at Southern Oaks. The facility is equipped to host the wedding and reception allowing guests to honor the bridal party under one roof. A bridal room and

a groom’s room offer private areas for dressing. Southern Oaks also offers a full line floral department. This service offers an added compliment to weddings and receptions. The floral department is staffed with a full time experienced designer who can create eloquent designs for any occasion. The floral department also accepts local orders and has Teleflora capabilities for deliverers outside of town.
