This is the most amazing catering company I have ever worked with. I have been in the hospitality business via my family, and I have never had such an amazing experience, relationship wise and food wise. Lianne and Daniel are absolutely the best at what they do. Your food will be delicious, the production and execution will be flawless, and the presentation will be jaw dropping. I will never hire anyone else from now on for any catering event! My wedding was a dream come true because of them and all my guests have gone out of their way to comment on it. You will not be disappointed!

We are not local to Vermont, but when we decided to get married at Shelburne Farms and we were looking at several options for catering, Let's Pretend came highly recommended by friends in the area. We could not have been happier with our decision to go with them! My husband and I were dreading many parts of the planning process, but when we met with Liane and Daniel for our tasting they were so friendly and enthusiastic about the whole experience that they gave us the boost we needed and we actually started to get excited about the event!

Throughout the whole planning process they were flexible and brought great ideas to us. When we couldn't decide between a sit down meal or a buffet style, they listened to our vision for the day and suggested a family style meal, which proved to be a glorious fit to the long tables we had our guests seated at. The presentations of the food were so beautiful that they became the centerpieces of our tables, which saved us money and worry, but also felt warm and festive.

Not only were they brilliant on the food end, but Daniel helped to create the most beautiful ambience. We had some big ideas, but weren't quite sure how to put it all together. Daniel just let us leave all the elements with him (and I completely trusted him) and he and his crew made the whole space warm and magical - more beautiful than we could have imagined.

Back to the food. Oh, the food! We had dozens of guests telling us it was one of the best meals they had ever had and was by far the best food at a wedding they had ever eaten. They source their ingredients from what is local and sustainable so the meal truly felt unique to the day and season and the place.

We were so happy to have found Let's Pretend and if we ever find ourselves in the area planning an event again, they will be the first ones we think of!

Let's Pretend Catering was the absolute best choice for our caterer! The food was some of the best I've ever had, the staff was all amazing, and the presentation was beyond our dreams. Liane and Daniel were so easy and fun to work with, and they had the entire event run completely smoothly. Anyone would be lucky to work with them!

The food was incredible at our wedding!!! We had 300 guests and Let's Pretend prepared food for cocktails, the reception dinner and food for an after-party. I am still hearing from guests how impressed they were, both with the quality and that everything arrived hot.
Their professionalism was also top-notch. From the beginning, they worked very collaboratively and made it clear that they would prepare whatever we wished. I highly recommend them.

My wedding planner recommended Let's Pretend during our search for a wedding caterer. We met with a few caterers, but Let's Pretend was the only one who drove all the way out to Stowe from Burlington for a meeting. On top of that, they brought us freshly baked scones! That was my indicator that LP would go above and beyond for my event, and I was not disappointed!

During the planning process, Lianne, Brandy and Daniel worked with me to get the menu to the right price and offered creative food options. We had just gotten back from a trip abroad, and they helped us incorporate some of our favorite travel foods into the meal. They are committed to sourcing local meats, cheese and vegetables, which was very important to my husband and I.

Let's Pretend's food was delicious and beautifully presented to the 130 wedding guests. They displayed a gorgeous local cheese board and passed appetizers. The plated dinner was served promptly to everyone. The event was staffed perfectly. Everyone commented on the friendly service. One of the servers even held a guest's baby during the ceremony!

Let's Pretend also catered my rehearsal dinner. The buffet food was presented in a classy manner and people couldn't stop talking about how delicious the food was. They were tidy in the house and left all the leftovers neatly packaged in the fridge.

Let's Pretend goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend them!

Let's Pretend are lovely people who created wonderful food for my daughter's wedding. Unfortunately, service was very slow. It took forever to get dinner out. There were too few people, it rained and we were on a rain plan. But it had rained all day and rain had been predicted - they were not prepared for the extra work. I had discussed that I thought they were understaffed in advance. I was assured that they had a system that worked. It didn't.

We met with 5 caterer's and did 5 different taste tests. There are many options out there but Let's Pretend fit us best. Their food was delicious and artistically plated. The price was lower then many of the other caterer's in the area. When planning our menu, they were open, flexible, and full of ideas.

I really enjoyed working with them leading up to the wedding. They not only helped design my menu but they also offered up ideas on how the layout, place settings, silverware styles, napkins, and lighting all fit my vintage theme. They went through every detail with a fine tooth comb.

The only disappointment was cake service. They were very friendly but our cake was served and the servers told the guests the wrong flavors. Service was slow as well but its just a minor detail and wasn't even noticed by our 150 guests. Let's Pretend also took over the slack of our coordinator from the museum and did setups that were not their responsibility b/c they knew they needed to get done and our coordinator wasn't living up to expectations.

All in all, Let's Pretend was worth every single penny. If you want someone to create masterpieces with flavor, offer up patience and creativity in table seating and setting, as well as making you feel part of their family, this is the team for you.
