CATERING & ALCOHOL
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center allows you to choose from a wide selection of catering professionals. If you would like to use a company that is not on our Exclusive Caterers List, there is a $250 off-list charge and the catering company must provide the license information to the Wildflower Center and sign a vendor contract agreement. Clients are allowed to bring their own alcohol without any additional expense; however, we do require that all alcohol is served by a TABC certified bartender working for the selected catering company.
You may use any vendor that you choose at the Wildflower Center– except for the food and beverage service. This includes lighting companies, equipment rental, bakeries, florists, coordinators, etc.
