We worked with Lauren Levine of Festive Foods and we could not have been happier with our experience. I cannot just describe Lauren as a caterer, because she is so much more than that. Lauren stepped in as a wedding planner and made the process of wedding planning very enjoyable and stress free! Deciding to work with Lauren was a simple decision because from the get-go she was very quick to respond to my initial inquiry and this responsiveness continued throughout the entire planning process. Lauren helped me out by providing recommendations for the rest of my vendors, including hair, makeup, florist, deejay, and transportation. All of which, we were beyond pleased with. We had stations at our wedding and the menu the Festive Foods chef produced for us was exactly what we wanted and delicious! All of our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed the food at our reception. Lauren and all of the Festive Foods staff were very attentive and professional. The entire reception flowed effortlessly and not once did I feel an ounce of stress. I completely trusted Lauren and her capable staff of putting on an amazing and elegant affair for myself and my guests.Sent on 01/24/2014

We hired Festive Foods Catering as our wedding caterer. Festive Foods’ performance during the months of planning, set-up and execution stages of our wedding was absolutely remarkable and far exceeded every expectation we had of their service. We could not recommend Lauren Levine and her Festive Foods crew more highly. Organic, cruelty-free, healthy and gourmet foods are Lauren’s forte and the primary reason we chose Festive Foods after a tasting that lasted several delicious hours at their rustic office. While the quality and taste of the food was foremost on our minds, we were also highly impressed with Lauren’s patience, responsiveness, attention to detail and innovative style. Lauren was truly as excited about our wedding as we were and her responsiveness proved it: she responded to myriad calls and E-mails generally within a couple of hours and often within minutes. She really pulled out all the stops to accommodate and recommend special flourishes and customizations that only a highly experienced professional could do. Lauren and her team worked her magic within our budget. She made expert recommendations regarding décor, menu, bar items, linens and even other vendors. The result was an exceptional value. Lauren’s service and expertise easily rivaled or exceeded other DC caterers who would not even consider our business unless we were able to increase our budget by 30%. On the day of the event, Lauren coordinated almost every aspect of the wedding with our other vendors to ensure the event was perfectly flawless. Our tables, seating cards, linens, place settings and bar were breathtakingly beautiful. The Festive Foods catering staff were efficient, professional and well dressed. The whole evening flowed due to Lauren’s choreographed direction. We received numerous praise and compliments on the meal from our guests, both during and after the wedding. Festive Foods made our most special day a memorable success and we have no doubt they could do it for you, too!Sent on 09/08/2013
We LOVE Festive Foods. The delicious food, the out of site presentation, and friendly and efficient staff all work so well here at The Birkby House. For a truly exception wedding be sure to check them out.
The team at Festive Foods is just fantastic -- we've worked several weddings with Lauren recently, and anxiously await the next one! We always hear tons of compliments on the food, as well as on the wonderful service. We highly recommend them!
