Lamb's took care of our cake and flowers. I was very pressed with both the flowers and cake. Everything turned out the way I had envisioned it. Actually, the exceeded what I expected and made my husband and I so very happy.
If you have never tried their cake, you should. Their talent for making a tasty cake and an exceptionally beautiful cake is impressive. I will continue to go back to Lamb's Thrift way for anything I will need in the future.

Although the cake tasted great and looked amazing our delivery person was late bringing the cake to the venue. We had to call and ask what happened to the cake and they said that the delivery person had not left yet.

I would still however, recommend them since the cake turned out wonderful! I'd suggest calling on the day to make sure they arrive on time.

Beautiful fresh flowers were delivered. The floral department is wonderful to work with.

In my opinion, the Lamb's Thriftway bakery is the premier place to get your wedding cake. I have purchased three wedding cakes from them for my daughters' weddings and they were extraordinary. The cake is absolutely delicious and they can create any style you want. We had some really unusual themes and they created the cakes just as we pictured them. They are cake geniuses!

Don't spend over $400 on a wedding cake from the fancy big town bakery.

We found wonderful review of Lam'bs online. So, we had our taste test and narrowed down to our favorite flavors. They are all so tasty. We looked at sample books of designs and colors. We selected a white 3 layer round cake with scalloped designs on the top and bottom layers in ivory, with the middle having a scroll design also in ivory. Our top tier was chocolate with chocolate mousse, the middle was almond poppyseed with raspberry filling, and the bottom was red velvet with cream cheese.

All of our guests raved about how fluffy the cake was and how awesome it tasted. Not to mention that it was extremely beautiful. When I told them that it was from a bakery at a grocery store they couldn't believe it.

There are more important items to spend your money on when paying for a wedding, ie. photo/video, etc. So save some dough and choose Lamb's for your beautiful and delicious wedding cake :) You won't be disappointed!

Catering: I was reluctant to use a grocery store for the hors d'ourvres reception I had at my wedding. However, Lamb's Garden Home Thriftway blew me away!
I worked with Stephanie and she knew her stuff! I told her how many guests we were having, what kind of food we were looking for and she did the rest. She made recommendations on what type of food to have, knew her quantities, and even recommended items that we may be forgetting (like drinks). The prices were very reasonable and the presentation was superb!
I went to pick up some breakfast trays for the bridal party the day before the wedding and even those were artfully arranged! They had an equal mix of healthy and pastry options on trays wrapped in cellophane, tied with gorgeous ribbon with separate serving utensils clipped to each tray. Stephanie even helped me take the trays to my car and load them.
You can tell that she cares about quality and having satisfied customers. And my guests raved about how good the food was!
In addition, we hired two of her servers to staff the food tables at the reception. They were incredibly polite and helpful! They cut and served our cake and stuck around to help us clean up. They brought to go containers to package up leftovers and were an invaluable part of helping us get out of the facility on time.

Cake: I tasted cakes at JaCiva's, Beaverton Bakery and Lamb's and Lamb's won out. The cake was lighter and they had more variety and were open to my design ideas. I told them I wanted Polish flowers on my cake (cornflowers, poppies and wheat shafts). They didn't balk at my ideas, but welcomed them. At the last minute, I asked them if they could put a bird's nest at the top to accommodate our cake topper and they were able to add it. The cake looked like a work of art! Everyone oohed and awwed over it. I couldn't be happier! Plus, you don't have to keep your top layer in the freezer for a year. They give you a free anniversary mini cake!

Yummy cake and great service!

My husband had a friend from high school that owns a bakery in Portland. We had met with her to do our wedding cake and she offered to do it as cost for us! We were super excited because we had a very tight budget. Unfortunately she stopped communicating with us after the first meeting. She didn't respond to emails in a prompt time frame, when we did hear from her and made an appt to meet she didn't show. 30 days before our wedding we had no cake and I was a little more than freaked out.

I called Lamb's Thriftway in Wilsonville because they did the cake for my brothers wedding 2 years ago and it was fantastic cake. I made an appt right away, they squeezed us into their busy schedule and made the process so quick and easy! We ordered the cake and delivery and it was easily fit into our budget!

They also decorated the cake exactly how I asked, it looked so beautiful and tasted even better!
Fantastic service and I can't wait to get our 1yr anniversary cake (complementary with wedding cake purchase!)

I had the pleasure of working with Karen at Lamb's Thriftway floral in Wilsonville, OR. We sat down with my mom a couple of months before the wedding and planned out everything. I wasn't sure what flowers to use, so I told Karen my colors and she came up with some beautiful recommendations. The arrangements came out beautifully. The only disappointment is that they forgot to bring the flower petals for the aisle. It would have been a disaster, but we luckily had fake petals we were using on the reception tables so disaster was averted!

Other than that snafu, the ceremony and reception were decorated beautifully, our bouquets and boutennaires were lovely, and our flower girl's halo was adorable!

I would highly recommend Thriftway as a reasonable option for your event flowers. They take great pride in their product and offer many options.
