2 in the main room, 1 in the lounge. Two of the bathrooms in the main room are handicapped accessible. .
In addition to preparing and serving your food and alcohol, your caterer is responsible for the set-up and break-down of all tables and chairs and for cleaning the house before departure. They will also be your go-to for additional rentals such as linens, specialty chairs and lighting (just to name a few). A good caterer will also manage the flow of your event.
Red Bubbles kitchenette is prep space and is to be used for final food presentation, plating and bussing only. Please note that Red Bubbles does not provide dishes, glassware, pots, pans, knives or utensils. The kitchenette prep space will be provided in a clean condition and should be returned to a clean condition immediately following your event. A final walk- through with a member of our event staff is mandatory at the close of your event. All trash, composting and recyclables must be removed from the site, failure to do so will result in additional fees and will be charged to the client.
NO! However we do have a preferred list of caterers.
First, they oversee the set-up to make sure you, your caterer and your decorator are abiding by Red Bubbles and/or Red Butterfly's rules and regulations. During the event they will float around, checking into safety issues, making sure the bathrooms are supplied and clean, and directing guests to the bathroom. Near the end of your event, they will make sure that the DJ starts the last song fifteen minutes prior to the end of your event. After your event, they will oversee the caterer putting away the tables and chairs and cleaning up.
Yes, as long as you drape them or tie them up. Don’t forget to take them with you at the end of the event.
Nails, tape, staples, glue, etc., may not be used in the hanging or placing of decorations. We recommend monofilament fishing line for securely and invisibly tying up decorations.
Contact us. Depending on what the items are, we should be able to accommodate you. However, we claim no responsibility for any items left. No area can be locked when the building is open, so we strongly urge you not to leave anything of value.
The following is available at no extra cost but subject to change:
100 white folding chairs, five 6’ rectangular tables, twelve 60” round tables (seat 6-8)
No, you don’t. However, you need to let us know what you will be renting, when it will be delivered, and when it will be picked up (unless the caterer is bringing it in and taking it out with them). Depending on when other events are scheduled and the size of your items, you may not be able to have anything dropped off before your set-up time and it may have to be removed at the conclusion of your reception. (That could mean you have to pay for a Saturday night pickup, or a Sunday delivery, for example)
Generally, office hours are on Monday - Friday from 10:00am until 4:00pm; however, office staff is often here at other times. If you would like to stop by to tour the or drop off paper.
Online or in person. By check made out to Red Butterfly. Please make sure to write the date of your event on your check. (Please note that there is a $35 fee on all returned checks)
By American Express, Discover, Visa or MasterCard.
2 weeks before your event.
What do I do if my payment is late? First, call and let us know. If it is your final payment, it will have to be made with a certified check, money order, or credit card. We cannot accept cash.
Since our rates are subject to change and vary depending on the day of the week, month of the year, etcetera, we ask that you call our office for up-to-date pricing and availability.
Rehearsals will be booked 2-3 months before the event. The exact time of the rehearsal will be determined based on your schedule and on our event schedule.
The caterer or event planner does the set-up, so you will plan the event layout with them.
The seven hours include: 1) a two hour-long set-up; 2) four hours for the event; and 3) one hour for the caterer to clean up and for the renter, caterer, and any other vendors to remove their property, equipment, decorations, etc., and to depart. (Please note that hours may not be taken from set-up and added to the event.)
We charge $275.00 per hour. Please let us know if you would like to extend your event, so that we may adjust our staff’s schedule to accommodate you.
All events must end by 11:00pm, which means guests must leave then so the caterer and other vendors can clean up and depart by midnight. If you want to extend your event beyond 11:00pm, it costs $325.00 per hour. You must make arrangements with us to do so at least one month in advance.
No. Your event may begin as early as 8:00am (set-up would begin at 6:00am).
If you are planning an evening event Monday through Friday, don’t forget about rush hour. Consider starting your event either before 4:00 or after 6:30, so guests aren’t delayed in traffic.
If you are considering extending your event beyond four hours or beyond 11:00pm, think about how you want your event to end. Particularly if you are having a wedding, most of the older guests will leave before the end, sometimes right after the cake is cut. Similarly, if you are having a Sunday through Thursday event, keep in mind that most of your guests probably have work the next day, so you may want to end your event earlier.
If the weather is going to be snowy or icy, contact us so we can discuss your options. If you choose to, you may reschedule to the first available date that works with your schedule. However, we do have an excellent snow-removal contractor, and, if you can get to Red Bubbles, we will have the, parking lot and front walkway cleared. And if the weather turns bad during your event, we will have the contractor clear the parking lot before your guests leave. If a state of emergency is called with restrictions for driving put in place, we will need to postpone your event.
Yes—we have two furnaces that will keep you warm!
We abide by the same laws that govern other Baltimore County-owned properties. Therefore, there is absolutely no smoking inside the building. Outdoors, smoking is allowed the right of the main entrance. We ask that you properly dispose of cigarette butts and cigar stubs in the receptacles provided.
Certainly. The children must be supervised by an adult or responsible teenager at all times.
As soon as you have them! We will fill out an in-house Event Sheet so that our staff is fully aware of your requests and the details that will go into making your day special.
We are located in a small plaza with ample parking. To estimate how many parking spaces your event will require, keep in mind that family-oriented events (like weddings and bar mitzvahs) generally require less parking because 2 or 3 family members might ride together. On the other hand, business events generally require more parking because guests tend to drive alone.
