Paige killed it! We cannot thank her enough for all of the time and effort she put into our wedding. Paige met with me multiple times at the venue as our guest list was ever changing and she was right there to roll with the punches with us. In the end we had just over 100+ guests that PO treated to a fabulous black tie experience from pre ceremony champagne upon arrival, to 5 passed apps, and then a multi course meal. The multi course meal was something that another catering company had suggested to me, but the price wasn't right. Enter PO and the price was right! We started with a salad, then a sea bass (droooooool - husband had to have it!), and then a short rib. After dinner we had a 6 piece dessert bar and then late night snacks of tots, sliders, and fries. PO knocked it out of the park! People are still telling us how full they were and how tasty everything was - I keep getting asked about the sea bass in particular and fish can be difficult to keep the right temperature when serving the masses. Bravo, Paige and team! I would recommend PO to all of my friends!

I absolutely love working with the Purple Onion Catering Company. They are trendy, efficient and always willing to go above and beyond to make each client feel special.

Purple Onion is one of Blue Valley's "approved Caterers" and they are wonderful. I especially love working with Margaret, she is top notch and has an eye for detail. They offer excellent food and service, in fact, they were here this past weekend and the food was terrific. Guests were raving about dinner. I highly recommend Purple Onion.

Oh my goodness! I love the Purple Onion! They make thew most amazing plated meals and they taste as good as they look. The Purple Onion is prompt and delicious!

I had recently worked with these guys at a wedding I covered, and they were simply UBER AWESOME! :-) They took great care of the vendors as well as the wedding guests, and were super professional! Their food was breath-taking, too! A+++
