G Celebrates started as ais a private chef & event planning company serving the beautiful Irish Hills area of Michigan and beyond. Special events should be joyous times spent with friends and family; in too many cases, hosts are overwhelmed with planning and not able to truly enjoy their special day. With your input we create custom menus, handle logostics, secure rental items, and generally take over the food leg work so you can enjoy the day with your guests.


Why choose G Celebrates?  Unexpected hurdles and glitches will inevitably make their presence known during the planning of your event.  G Celebrates has the experience to have seen just about every mishap imaginable and turn it around before your guests will even know anything was amiss.  That big experience is balanced by our small size.  There is always time to answer a question or brainstorm ideas so don’t hesitate to give a call or send an email and be assured that every client is a VIP client.


Who is G?

G is a nickname, short for Gretchen. Raised outside Chicago amongst some of the best party throwers ever. After obtaining a business degree with a focus in computers and moving to the Silicon Valley area, she realized she was destined to have entirely more fun than a cubicle could hold.  A move back to the Midwest and culinary school brought her to the magical world of food and events. After getting her feet wet with a few years in corporate dining and catering companies, she began to miss some of the more personal touches and moved into planning weddings and special events. After 14 years of working for others, she decided it was time to venture out on her own and start G Celebrates.


When she isn't making moments matter for her clients, she can be found traveling, cooking, volunteering, laughing, and trying to keep up with her family.
