Bespoke down to the last detail

We hired Spilled Milk to cater our wedding of around 100 people in The Barns at Wolf Trap and Heather and her team were perfect from start to finish. From the very beginning they worked with us to cater a fully bespoke wedding menu to our needs, our likes, our dislikes, and our accessibility needs for some of our guests (vegetarian, allergies, halal offerings, etc). Heather was extremely easy to get in contact with, and always quick to respond with helpful suggestions, ways to mitigate extra cost, and helpful breakdowns of what we were getting every step of the way.

When meeting with her team at their offices/kitchen, we had fun, informative, and delicious time tasting a variety of options for our wedding day and narrowing down our final choices. Even when we decided to make some changes after the tasting they were extremely amenable and able to make those things happen.

The food at our wedding was my number 1 priority (after getting married to my now wife that is), and every single person I talked to on the day had nothing but incredible things to say about every bite they had that day. From passed appetizers, to the sit down dinner, deserts, and even the most delicious tater tots and grilled cheese sandwiches for a late night snack, it was all a hit.

Again, I truly can't recommend Spilled Milk enough, they are truly worth every single cent we spent with them and I would gladly hire them again and again and again. They say there's no use crying over spilled milk, but when you eat their food you'll have nothing but tears of joy!

Spilled Milk exceeded expectations in every way!

Spilled Milk exceeded expectations. When it comes to wedding food - we had relatively modest expectations for a party with 220 guests - at a museum no less without any real kitchen facilities. Spilled Milk blew us away during the tasting and we are thrilled to say the food was just as good on the day of the event. Everything was fresh and tasted delicious. We received numerous compliments during and after the event from our guests - everyone wanted to know who we used! We also loved their attention to detail and creative presentation. The service staff and bartenders were also terrific. I would not hesitate to use Spilled Milk again and would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in the greater DC area.

Thankful for this caterer!

Heather and the whole Spilled Milk team was incredible. Our venue was beautiful but difficult to work with, and the moment that the caterer came into the picture all of that stress went away. They had everything under control, gave great advice, handled everything flawlessly, were communicative, and the product was quality. Great food, great service, and overall a positive experience.

Working with team SP for the first time has left me impressed. They brought their A game during an event which was particularly challenging, the food was delicious, and the service was on point! If they can pull off a 5 star meal in what basically turned into a cabin the woods, you can absolutely feel comfortable that they can handle anything..... really - anything!
