Frequently Ask Questions
How much will people drink?
A general rule of thumb is 2 drinks per person for the first hour and 1 per hour after that. So a 4 hour event equals 5 drinks per person. Some people will drink more, some less, but this is a generally accepted average. Wildflower Spirited Bartending can help you plan and execute your beer, wine and liquor purchase from reputable local sources.

Will there be a tip jar

Some hosts may wish to not have a tip jar visible to their guests. In these cases, we reserve the right to add a 18% gratuity to your invoice. All gratuities are split equally amongst the staff who work your event. Ask us for more details.
Will our guests have to show ID to drink?
We have a legal obligation to prevent service of alcoholic beverages to minors. While we are not likely to card every member of your party, we do reserve the right to check IDs and refuse service to those who are unable to provide acceptable proof of their age. So tell that baby-faced cousin to make sure he has his ID!
