About this pro

How does your service stand out?

We have been in the catering business for 22 years. We truly love helping our Clients with all types of parties. We can help you from start to finish plan your event. We take the STRESS out of events.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the satisfaction of designing a custom menu and a beautiful food table display, hearing the guests say "What a beautiful display when they go through the line and then coming back and letting us know that the food and service was wonderful also." This is why I love the catering and event coordinating business.

    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.
    Replied to Denice A. - Feb 18, 2014

    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. Viki

    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.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
My Son was getting married and we wanted to help with the Wedding so we catered the Wedding. Then our best Friends Daughter was getting married and they asked if I would help with hers. I of course said that I would. At her Wedding I had 2 more requests for catering for Weddings and the rest is history. That has been 19 years ago. I love it!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We cater all types of events: Weddings BBQ's large and small Large Corporate Events 1000-10,000 Memorials LGBT events Commitment Ceremonies Baby Showers Anniversarys Graduations Just Because Parties Full Event Coordinating for large corporate events
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have Organized and Catered 4 Weddings where myself and my Team donated 100% of our services to couples who were well deserving.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always get a proposed final invoice from any of the providers who you are thinking about using. This way you will see if there are any additional charges that you did not no about.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I grew up in the Customer Service industry. You have to love people, be very organized and not mind working 12-16 hours a day. I am very hands on and see the events from booking to cooking to day of.
