Southern hospitality at it鈥檚 finest!

As soon as I reached out to Melonie, for interest in her catering services, I knew we were in good hands. We got married on Nov 5 in Knoxville, TN. Many of our guests travelled from the Midwest and we wanted to treat them to a true Southern style meal. Melonie has been nothing but accommodating from the start and put together a charcuterie board, non-alcoholic beverage table, coffee/hot chocolate table, as well as a BBQ buffet. My guests spoke very highly of the meal following the wedding and I took thought the flavor was amazing!
Her team even took the time to have both the cocktail hour apps and dinner plates ready for the bride and groom to eat!
Communication was easy, the team was flexible, and compared to other caterers I researched, their prices were much more affordable/realistic.

I am more than happy to recommend Paradise Que for your next event!

Since 2006, I've been passionate about running a full-service event planning business. Parties have always been my thing! From designing beautiful invitations to ensuring everything is perfectly set up for the event (well, maybe not so much the cleaning part), seeing guests have an amazing time and enjoying delicious food brings me incredible joy. It truly makes my dream come true to help hosts create the perfect event.

When it comes to food, it's my love language. With my catering services, I take great pleasure in nourishing hearts, minds, and bodies with delightful morsels and delectable bites of handcrafted meals that are full of flavor.

Let me help you create a memorable and enjoyable event!
