Can’t imagine a better caterer!
Ivy’s is everything you could want in a wedding caterer, and so much more.Sent on 09/22/2020
Karen helped us create a menu that was right for us with many different options to choose from. From the starters to the main courses to the cake everything was absolutely delicious and all the servers were friendly and courteous. Ivy and Karen dealt with the many challenges of Covid with ingenuity, professionalism, and always with understanding and kindness. It gave me much needed peace of mind knowing they were there to help things run smoothly on my daughters wedding day. Forever grateful!

Something Special about Ivys!
There are many caterers available who provide exceptional food, but to provide exceptional food and service with passion and pride is what sets Ivy’s Simply Homeade apart. I started following Ivy’s on Instagram this past year as I was looking to plan an event . As an owner, her community support, weekly menu updates , and Covid safety tips really made me comfortable. Ivy’s passion is apparent and she really cares so much about her business and customers. I also was at a small birthday celebration that was personally catered by Ivy . The event was more than memorable! I can assure you my choice will be Ivys for our event and highly recommend Ivy , her team and their talent !Sent on 10/30/2020

We booked Ivy’s to cater our October 2020 wedding a few months before COVID hit. As you can expect, our wedding plans changed a few times but working with Sophia alleviated any concerns/worries we had. We were originally getting married at the Eolia Mansion in Waterford with 90 guests. We had to scale back to 30 and moved the wedding to my in-laws back yard. Sophia worked with us to manage all of the rentals and reworked our entire menu to ensure we still had the food we imagined served in a safe way. Sophia made it easy for us to not worry or stress as she thought and considered every single detail. When we arrived at our reception everything was perfectly set up, the amazing staff greeted us with drinks and food and we got to enjoy our evening. The passed appetizers were absolutely incredible - my siblings are still talking about them a week later! We had a beautiful plated dinner that came out to all of the guests hot and beautifully plated. Sophia also managed all of our dessert options and worked with Zest to coordinate a cutting cake and cupcakes. They cleaned everything up after the fact and it looked like they were never there. Planning a wedding during covid was stressful but having Sophia made the entire process much more enjoyable. We also got lunch from Ivy’s for the day of which I would also recommend. The entire experience was amazing - I will never use another caterer! Thank you Sophia, Ivy and team!Sent on 10/17/2020
