The food was delicious. Sometimes wedding food is kind of blah, but Barb did a great job. She was really easy to work with, and her staff did a great job on our wedding day. Can’t recommend her enough!Sent on 11/08/2019

Barb catered our wedding at the Annapolis Maritime Museum and we could have not had our perfect day without her help! Not only did she create a fantastic menu that had all our guests raving, but her experience with the venue and other local vendors was absolutely invaluable. For anyone looking for a truly great wedding experience brought to you by true professionals, look no further!!Sent on 09/18/2018

Barb catered my December reception at the Annapolis Maritime Museum. The Museum provides a list of their preferred caterers and after some research, narrowed it down to the ones that seemed most geared to my tastes and budget, with a preference for the small and local options. I reached out to a few, and Barb was instantly responsive and sent over several sample menus. I was impressed with her proactiveness and after exchanging a few emails, felt she was the one. I could not have made a better decision!Sent on 12/05/2017
Barb struck the perfect balance of providing me with enough of her own ideas but also listening to my tastes and preferences to come up with the perfect menu for our event. She also met with my parents and me to walk through the venue and show us how she envisioned everything being set up. As we got closer to the date, she held a tasting at her house for my husband, his family, and me so we could try everything on the menu. Unsurprisingly, it was all delicious and I don't know that we made a single change after that!
We wanted a healthy, fresh menu with a local flair that was also seasonal, so some highlights included: crab dip; a raw bar; rockfish; steak; tons of roasted vegetables; a butternut squash, arugula, and quinoa salad; and a hot chocolate/coffee bar! My only regret from my event is that I never had the opportunity to check out the appetizer and dessert spread as I was too busy chatting with guests but these got rave reviews. I really did not want the food to feel like standard wedding fare and Barb really accomplished this -- my plate of food felt like it was cooked just for me, not for 130 other people.
Beyond just the food, Barb also was "basically a wedding planner" to use my husband's words. She coordinated the rental equipment, advised us on alcohol amounts, brought all the mixers, helped us with our timeline, and generally made us feel at ease during a stressful time. I highly recommend Barb and her team to cater your next event!
Bowl of Cherries's reply:Thank you Melissa! It was my pleasure to work with you and Woody and your families - I loved it!! I wish you two many years of wedded bliss ❤️ barb
The team with Bowl of Cherries is to be highly commended! They recently catered a wedding here at Rocklands Farm, and it was magical! Thanks to Barb for all the details in planning. She came to our property on several occasions to make sure everything was covered. She was very thoughtful when planning the delivery of tables, chairs, linens, china (etc!). She and her team cared for my venue as if it were their own. Even though the weather was dreary, their team made the event shine! Thanks so this great team from Bowl of Cherries!
We love when Barb and her Bowl of Cherries staff is at the museum! Clients love her creativity and presentation, and we appreciate all of the unique ideas she brings to the table. She is great about working within clients' budgets, and we refer a lot of business to her. She is a great friend to the Annapolis Maritime Museum!
