OUTSTANDING! Kelli was the only one who responded with a full menu and not only read my email but actually put some thought in to her response. She was flexible, and accommodated all the changes, and additional requests, even the last minute ones, with e ease. She picked up the cake and champagne, another last minute request. The food was delivered on time and was fabulous. Everything was beautifully presented, clearly labeled, delicious and ready to go. She catered two separate cocktail receptions, one with 4 dishes for 20, and then 7 dishes for 50. Then when we asked her to provide additional food a late night snack, she took care of that last minute request. So technically, she catered three events in one night. I had nothing to worry about! Still days after the event, I am getting emails from people asking me to tell them the names of what we had, and who made the food, etc. Kelli and her husband were both a huge help when they delivered. He even helped move a table from downstairs to upstairs. The guest of honor was blown away, as were the guests. I have used other caterers and private chefs before, and Kelli is a rare find. Professional. Attention to detail. She communicates every step of the way and asks questions to help cover every possible detail, which was a huge help to remind me of the many things I had forgotten. Absolutely will be using Kelli again!

EVERYTING went so well from start to finish and the food was ONOLISCIOUS! The experience with working on the menu, headcount, budget was on point! Thank you to Jennie, Miguel and Wassim for a wonder SUPRISE 50th birthday dinner party for my husband. It has been a wonderful experience for our family and friends. My guest favorites was the Seafood fettuccine, even the little guest were munching on it. I have to say no one is perfect and its easy to miss a simple thing that can be easily communicated. Communication is the most favorite of my experience through this process. Thank you again!

We recently hosted a baby shower at our home. Tea Traditions was easy to work with. We opted for a package that included food and tableware. The tableware and china was beautiful The FOOD was excellent. Although we did order salads that were delicious, the finger food were tasty, easy to eat, and very convenient. It was perfect while munching and opening gifts, sharing tea, and great fun conversation. 5 star service, 5 star help. What a great day. Sorry, dont know why pictures are sideways

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

    Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

    Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

    How much should catering cost per person?

    Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

    • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
    • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
    • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
    • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
    • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
