On March 28th we hosted a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" Bridal Shower for my daughter with 25 attendees. We hired Nola's to handle the catering, provide support staff and assist with cleanup. Nola and her staff's involvement exceeded our expectations and the quality of service from beginning to end was incredible. The menu was perfect and very fitting for the "theme." Numerous guests complimented the gluten free and vegetarian dishes and were impressed with the beautiful layout and display. Nola's staff support (Kari Rae and Tarrahan) made each and every guest feel special, ensured that everyone had plenty of libations and food. They were so flexible that when the shower ran longer they were willing to adjust their schedules to stay the extra 2-hours for "clean-up" - everything was washed, dishes re-boxed and we absolutely had to do nothing but have fun with the bride to be. Guest comments included: "that was the most relaxed, enjoyable shower they had been to", "the food was delicious and beautiful presentation", the experience was over and above what they expected. Many guests wanted Nola's catering contact and were interested in hiring for upcoming events. Everything was timely, perfectly executed and nothing went wrong - we would HIGHLY recommend for any occasion (large or small) without equivocation!! Conny

George did an outstanding job of catering our company Christmas Party at our home. We were able to relax and enjoy our 50+ guests and a dozen children! The food was incredible, there was a special kid-friendly dish that the children loved. Our server/hostess Shannon not only set up the buffet artfully, but toted a tray around our home making sure the guests had delicious food! George dropped in to make sure all was well too! Frank & I had a great time, and our guests thanked us repeatedly the following week! We all received "the special treatment"! Thank you George, Shannon & Al Lago!

Mike did a great job catering a meal for my family (20 people). It was the first time both sides of the family were meeting, and we didn't want to have to stress about food. Mike brought everything by right on time with warming trays. Really made the evening go smoothly. The food was great! Mike had no trouble accommodating the gluten-free requirement. Be sure to ask about the flourless chocolate cake!!

Gwen, you are an amazing caterer! Thank you! Yellow Bird Catering catered a buffet for my wedding reception and everything worked out perfectly. I was having a difficult time finding a caterer that was reasonable and willing to work with me. I kept getting frustrated by caterers by their lack of flexibility to get the meal we were wanting. That all changed when I talked with Gwen. She was friendly, understanding and willing to work with me. Her prices were reasonable and as soon as I said "wedding" she didn't charge her demeanor like the other caterers did. My reception had 200 guests and almost everyone of them complemented the buffet. I don't know how else to explain how satisfied I was...great food, great customer service, and reception dinner that went off without a hitch. I am so thankful I found Yellow Bird Catering!

    She was located at the WIAA meet from Thurs-Sat and I finally got to taste her awesome food on Saturday. I got her Lizzie's Yakisoba and it was wonderful. Topped with a couple of savory buffalo wings. Glad I stopped in. Plus the Seahawks red bull drink was to die for. Will definitely find her again.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
