I started my catering business 19 years ago when my son got married. We wanted to help with the Wedding so I asked how we could help? She had said if I would like to cater the reception that would be great. The rest is history!

    magical...presentation was a lovely pairing with the rest of my daughters wedding decor. Lunch was very tastey-no complaints from any hungry guests. Professionally dressed staff, got right down to business-flawless set up and removal. Willing to please...well done-bravo!!!

    Viki and her staff did an amazing job catering our event. The food was delicious and she coordinated its display with the color palette for our event, it was beautiful. Her staff was professional and attentive to our guests and everyone raved how good it all was!! I had received quotes from other caterers but Viki quickly connected with me on our needs and our budget! I highly recommend Its Party Time to everyone. Thank you Viki!

    I hired Viki and her staff after seeing multiple positive reviews on Yelp and a local wedding community site I was using during the planning process. After our initial contact she invited me to meet at the Macys Sip and Scan she was catering and I was able to view her tables and chat with her about what I was looking for. She was super attentive and sweet, got back to all of my emails and phone calls and made sure everything I asked for was delivered. I did a TON OF RESEARCH and the price per head was extremely reasonable, (even after the delivery and set up %) especially given the amount of food there was leftover and the quality of the ingredients used.

    I am so sad I never got a chance to see the catering table set up except from behind for twenty seconds before I was whisked away for the grand entrance! Our guests seemed very happy with the food and said it all looked so nice and elegant. Thank goodness for the photographer!

    We did a whole roasted pig and I was told it was super yummy and having it sliced as people went through the line was super impressive to our friends and family. A couple guests did say there was a little pink meat they were worried about but as the owner Viki stated below, this is normal with a Traegar smoked pig. Not much we could do about that. My husband said he got to see he pig before it was carved up and the caterer pointed out they "burned" in our names and wedding date into the skin which we thought was a very sweet and totally unexpected touch. My dad and my Samoan family was very happy that the staff were nice enough to package up the skin for them to take home with them as well.

    Although I was only able to eat 2-3 bites of the plates their awesome staff made sure to get to us after the ceremony (and couldn't tell you how they tasted or even what I tasted as I was so distracted with all of the guests hahaha) quite a few people have told us that it was so nice to have decent food at a wedding for once . I was SUPER happy that the vegi's were fresh and not frozen (I CAN tell the difference and it's huge!), they were still delicious reheated the next day. The staff packed up a TON of leftovers and we have been munching on them since Saturday, a really nice treat to not have to cook for a few days afterwards! The leftover pork is FA-MAZING!

    Her staff checked with us throughout the night if we needed anything and made sure the guests were full and happy, all delivered with a smile. That's what was most important to us and Viki definitely delivered! I will recommend her for sure and quite a few of our guests also took cards for future needs!

    EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT FOR MY SON's GRADUATION PARTY!! We had a last minute graduation party to arrange. We're from out of town and didn't have a lot of time to shop around. Vick was able to figure out a meal for us and took care of everything. We had constant changes because we had glutton-free, vegetarian and vegan people as well as regular omnivores to serve. We changed the number of people twice, whether to have servers or not have servers, and the time of delivery. All changes were handled and the delivery was on time and hot. The food tasted great and there was plenty of it. I would recommend It's Party Time to anyone

    Viki is the best no other way to describe her and her work! She catered my wedding in 2011 and went above and beyond what I could have imagined. The food was amazing and the way it was displayed was beautiful! She also picked up the desserts for my dessert bar, my cake, and helped set me up with a DJ and photographer. She was an all around miracle worker! Thanks so much to Viki and her amazing staff for relieving a lot of stress from my big day and making it perfect!

    Working with Viki was wonderful. Their service before the big day was great. They arrived on time. Our experience with the food was not so good. I would rather speak with Viki directly than leave details on the website.

    Hi Denice,
    I am sorry that your brunch was not a good as you had hoped. We always try to go above and beyond with our service and food. When ordering for a breakfast in the future if you let us know that the guests came in early and didn't eat a breakfast then I can change the portion sizes for the xlarge servings. I look forward to making this right with you on your next meeting per our conversation. I always appreicate any feed back so I can correct anything that might have not turned out as our Clients had hoped.

    It's Party Time Catering catered my vineyard wedding for 200 people and has also done my work holiday parties for 300 guests. They have excellent options (in food/layout and decorations), the food was great and the service was very professional.

    Thank you for letting us help you with all of your events. It is always fun to create different events for different events. See you for your Christmas Party.

  • 5/5 stars

    It's Party Time Catering is the first independent catering company that I have used. Viki and her team
    responded to my inquiry on Thumbtack almost immediately with the exact price that we requested.
    Then she and her team provided excellent customer service with their communication and responses
    to my requests. Our event was a hit, largely because Vicki and her staff went beyond the call of duty
    in putting together a tasty, filling meal, provided the nicest setting for our company picnic and made
    sure everything was cleaned up before they left. They even gave us a small child-size pool that was
    used for our sodas for our next event.

    I highly recommend It's Party Time Catering for your next event.

    Viki and her staff have catered several events for me including weddings. Her attention to details and thinking of things I had not thought of saved me in several occasions! And the food is awesome! She catered to specialities we requested and delivered, highly recommended!

    Thank you for letting us help with your events. We do love it when we get a repeat call to help with another event from our Cliets. Can't wait to hear from you for your next event.

    I had been searching for months for a caterer for my Dad’s 50th surprise birthday that would fit within my budget. I did tastings and wanted to make sure everything was absolutely perfect (Yes I am one of those annoying perfectionists). I saw the “It’s Party Time” Van driving through Sherwood and decided to give them a call. Quite honestly I was ready to give up and order party platters from Costco and call it good. Viki was very flexible with my work schedule and met me late in the evening at Shari’s for a tasting THE NEXT DAY. The food was delicious but not exactly what I was looking for. She made a lot of suggestions and showed me pictures and was even willing to do a 2nd tasting the following day and my sister and myself.. (no charge of course). The birthday party was coming up and we were on a complete time crunch and Viki and her team were able to pull everything together so quickly, she even threw in some extra coleslaw!! Her prices were definitely reasonable and she was so flexible. Viki wasn’t at the event but her team made everything so easy and was even willing to help out with everything else! I will use her for anything I have coming up-She is catering my daughter’s wedding next August!

    This was such a fun event helping you suprise your Dad for his 50th. No problem with perfectionists this was I know exactly when you want so we can make it happen. Thank you again!

    For the third year It's Party Time Catering has provided the food for our Annual Breakfast with Santa. Couldn't do it without Viki. The food is always great and we get a lot of complements. We've used Viki for weddings and memorial service as well, I can alway count on her professionalism, her presentation and great food. Would never have a party without her!
