Crystal Garden Banquet Center is a wonderful place to have a special event! In early December 2016, my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a party for our family and friends. Karol and Bill could not have been more accommodating to my special requests. After booking our party and discussing some menu ideas and our budget, Karol sent me two complete menu suggestions with the cost per person. Since I wanted to combine some parts of the two menus, we met with Karol to discuss my changes. She was so gracious in helping me decide what to serve and was willing to make any changes that I wanted. Karol and Bill also made suggestions and helped us pick the perfect wines to accompany our menu. Karol is a very talented chef so our buffet menu was just what we wanted, including Linguine ai Frutti di Mare and Chicken Saltimbocca. Everything was prepared to perfection and simply delicious! We also had two of Karol’s luscious cakes for dessert. Our guests were so impressed with the menu as well as the venue. The Crystal Room was decorated for Christmas, understated but beautiful even encompassing the blue and silver accents that I wanted. If you are looking for a special place to have your special event, I highly recommend Crystal Garden Banquet Center in Edwardsville. Karol and Bill are totally committed to providing the best possible experience for you.
