Upscale small wedding luncheon
We were doing a COVID-19, small group wedding with 22 people in attendance. We wanted a catered upscale lunch that was individually packed to maintain COVID-19 guidelines. We met with Janet and she brainstormed with us and came up with a wonderful menu, including dessert. Her individual touches to the menu were greatly appreciated. Our guests were very complimentary about the lunch. Would use her again in a heartbeat.Sent on 07/28/2020

The best food and the best people!!!
One of my favorite parts of wedding planning was working with Jan and Todd- I want to host 20000 more events just so I can work with them over and over again. They are the kindest people and truly put love into everything they create. They had so many helpful ideas and whenever I felt clueless ( many times) they were right there to answer my questions and suggest what they thought would work best.
And now the food... holy cow. It's been months since our wedding and we literally still get comments about how amazing the food was. I wish I was eating the cheesy potatoes right now. Jan also created the most gorgeous grazing table for our cocktail hour, and people were getting their cell phones out to take photos because it was so darn beautiful. I could really go on and on, but the bottom line is that Busy Bee is a vendor you need to have at your wedding.Sent on 11/09/2019

Beautifully prepared with fresh local ingredients!
Jan and her team at Busy Bee were not only extremely professional caterers but served a meal for our sons wedding that was absolutely delicious and incorporated many of the fresh local ingredients that we love! The presentation of each dish was beautiful and full of flavor and color! I would highly recommend Jan for any type of event and will definitely use Busy Bee in the future!!Sent on 09/03/2020
