Absolutely nothing could have been better for our event. Karen went above and beyond providing things I didn't even think we needed for the baby shower. The food was EXCELLENT. Everyone was getting seconds and thirds. I cannot say enough good things about this company, you won't be disappointed!

I was looking for someone who would do catering for my daughters baby shower. I stumbled across Flavor Palette. Tom McDonough was a pleasure to work with. Being from out of town, he was very understanding and patient with me. It was a small gathering and he worked with me on the menu that I wanted. He kept in touch and was very professional. I look forward to working with him again.

I used Patty’s services for a baby shower of 30 people. Her food was fabulous. Nearly every guest had a compliment on how good her food was. She was professional, punctual and responsive. I hope I have another event where I can use her services. Thank you Patty!

One of my best friends was having a baby. Naturally I was eager to help with making her baby shower as memorable as possible. I was in charge of her cake and contacted Verousce. I gave Verousce a picture of what I knew my friend wanted and told her if possible to make something similar. The cake not only turned out gorgeous but everyone couldn't stop raving about the amazing taste! Very talented and professsional! I've had the pleasure of meeting her partner Lenny and will continue to hire this duo in a heartbeat!

Hi all, I consulted Anja and her fiancé a few months ago to plan my small yet intricate baby shower. Anja was in charge of decor while her fiancé was incharge of a specific dish; curried goat. The event turned out beautifully and the food as delicious. I would definitely be a return customer for future events

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.
