What is a supper club?

Supper clubs are restaurant establishments doubling as social clubs. These social clubs were trendy in the 1920s during prohibition. These were often run illegally. In order to enter one of these places, you need to know a password or perform a special knock. In today’s time, supper clubs are still popular in the Midwest and scattered throughout America and are now legal establishments.

I loved the idea of having a social club where you can hang out, eat, and socialize, so Whimsy’s version expresses that by creating these fun theme suppers, making delicious food, and creating whimsical experiences for smaller groups.

Do you cater?

I do occasionally. I mainly do it for friends or family. If I do catering, I prefer a gig where I can cook on the spot, the food quality is better and it’s actually safer to serve food made-to-order. I’m not fond of catering because often the food you cook must be transported to a designated location, so the food ends up sitting in a transportation box longer than I desire. This process can lower the food quality depending on the food prepared. Some foods can stand up to the travel with continued quality like stews, and soups, or foods that don’t need too much temperature control, (like chips and baked goods that don’t need refrigeration) these work best.

If I were to cater I prefer. . .
Scone and small cake orders which can include tea and mocktails
A place with an onsite kitchen, potable water and refrigeration
A licensed facility
Host restaurant

Where do you do this? / What’s the address?

I host suppers at a venue called Flicker and Fir Farm on 1465 SE Alexander Ave, Corvallis, OR for private groups and events.

Is there parking at Flicker and Fir?

Yes, there is parking, but it is very limited. It is best to carpool with your group or ride your bike if you’re in the neighborhood. During a private supper event you can park along the street at Alexander Ave or you can park by the northern side of the leaning barn up the gravel road.

How much?

I charge $55 a person. This includes the three-course supper, mocktails, tea, or other non-alcoholic drinks, and a fun-themed activity to do along with the meal.

How do I book one of your suppers?

You can do this in several ways:
1. Online through this website
2. Fill out the contact form
3. Shoot me an email at
4. Text/call at 971-808-1105
5. Talk to me in person at one of the farmer’s markets on Tuesday / Sunday
6. Book a consultation appointment with me (fill this form out)

What do you accept for payment?

I accept cash, check, cards, Venmo, PayPal, Kuto, and Tap.

Are there costumes for the themes?

You can most definitely wear a costume for the themed supper! It is strongly encouraged, but it is not required. Your costume can be as elaborate as you want or it can be as simple as wearing a silly hat.

What are the activities during the meal?

Depending on the theme, diners get to do an activity. For example, the Otherworld has pin-the-wisp on the ghoul and fishing for apples. Another example is playing croquet and moving one-space-on during a Mad Tea Party.

Do you accommodate allergies/dietary restrictions?

Yes, I do! It is certainly important to me that everyone enjoys their meal. With enough notice, I’m more than happy to come up with an alternative that fits your allergy or dietary restrictions.

How much notice do you need for a booking?

Please give me five (5) to seven (7) days ahead of time so I have time to confirm details, plan and prepare. I also need to notify the venue owners. The menus are seasonally dependent, therefore I may need to come up with some alternative dishes for supper. I need to get some supplies like pumpkins for carving, for example, in the case of the Otherworld theme.

Do you do weddings?

No, those are too big for my taste and not my thing. Otherwise, I enjoy doing small special occasion gatherings like birthday parties, and family dinners (as pictured below), and seasonal holidays like Halloween or date nights. My supper themes pair well with those kinds of occasions. diners

Are you licensed/certified/qualified?

I hold a Food Handler’s card with a 100% score, a culinary arts degree, and over a decade of restaurant experience while living in Portland in various restaurant settings. As a result, I have a solid understanding of the industry. Additionally, I hold high standards for the cleanliness of my kitchen. Also, Whimsy is a registered LLC and I hold general liability insurance.

Is this family-friendly?

The short answer is yes. Some themes have dark elements to them that may make some people uncomfortable. For example, Supper with the Creatures features fun, odd creatures that have a taste for human fingers. If any part of a theme makes you feel uncomfortable, please do not book it or attend. Choose a theme that you feel comfortable with. The darker themes are similar to A Nightmare Before Christmas, the Munsters, or Coraline if that is helpful.

Please fill out the info below. Let me know if mornings or afternoons work for you. I’ll reach out to you through email or by calling you so we can coordinate a specific time and place to meet. To book a supper I need at least 5 to 7 days in advance, it would be a good idea to schedule a consultation around that time or sooner.

Tasteful Descriptions

March 8th the Noshery starts taking orders. In the spirit of accepting orders, I’m providing descriptions of the offerings available at the Cottage Noshery. I’ll be adding new items too as time goes on. Enjoy these tasteful descriptions below to help you choose what to order!

Honeyed Pepita Cran Cake
– This is the healthiest of the cake options but still indulgent, this little bake drips with Oregon made honey with crunchy pumpkin seeds and sweetened cranberries creating a lovely fruit cake-like bite.

Ginger Snap Cake– Enjoy a bite of spicy crystallized ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon, a testament to sugar n’ spice making everything nice. This is topped with a lemon butter cream frosting to create that bright snap of flavor.

Plain Vanilla Jane– This tiny cake is vanilla all the way through from the cake to the frosting, but the flavor is complex and rich.

Paprika Dusted Cocoa Cake– Classic chocolate cake with a tasty twist. The cocoa and paprika create a burst of flavor that’ll knock you off your feet.

Pepita Cran Scone– Pumpkin seeds add a subtle savory flavor and crunch to this scone. Complimented by the dried cranberries which adds just enough sweetness.

Ginger Nutmeg– This was a popular choice when I first started the noshery. The sweet nutty flavor of nutmeg and the bite of crystalized ginger is quite a subtly addictive combo.

Cinnamon ginger– This scone is both spicy and fresh. A lovely apple butter jam would pair well with this yummy bake.

Ginger Cran– This is a refreshing scone with the right amount of sweet from the dried cranberry and the pleasantly cleansing taste of ginger.

These tasty delights will come in packages of 4 each, 8 each or 12 each. Noshes are priced at $2.50 each.
