Food in Bloom
What a fantastic job Food in Bloom did for my daughter's wedding on January 26th! Our guests felt so pampered by all of the very professional service staff as they passed hors doeurves for the cocktail hour and then again for dinner. The signature cocktail was so pretty and refreshing and Kris had great ideas for adding in simple but fun touches, such as striped straws for the drinks. From our first meeting, Food in Bloom really listened to my daughter's vision and they made it a reality. Even though Food in Bloom is a prestigious caterer, they never brushed off any of our questions or requests. Everything was done in a timely manner, and we were put at ease. The food was amazing ... the chef was fantastic! ... plenty to go around for all of our guests and absolutely piping hot and delicious. The presentation was beautiful and the servers were so attentive to all of our requests and genuinely took the time to make sure everything was going smoothly. Kris put together a classy candy buffet in silvers, whites and pinks which was enjoyed by all. Tom (the event manager) was so great to work with and answered all of my questions in a timely manner (as did Kris). Our guests all felt so special as Food in Bloom pampered them. Love Food in Bloom and only wish we had another wedding to do so we could contract with them all over again.
It was such a pleasure to work with Food in Bloom and especially Kris, our event planner. Kris is a wonderful communicator, checking in, telling us when she would be more and less available, and constantly making sure our needs/wants were being met. Kris just also has a wonderful, sunny attitude, that makes everything easier and more fun. The day of the wedding could not have been better. They were able to adjust when the timing for things was a little sooner than we planned. The staff was incredibly friendly. I was treated with such great care by every single member of the team. And let's not forget, the food! Food and Bloom and Kris listened to our vision, helped us shape that vision, and made it happen. Everything was absolutely delicious. I can't say enough good things.
Beautiful presentation and delicious food! We received many compliments from our guests who told us this was, by far, the tastiest wedding food they had ever had. Leading up to the wedding, Food in Bloom was prompt, receptive, and thorough. They seamlessly integrated the pan-Asian influences we desired into the menu. At the reception, we were impressed not only by the food itself but by their staff, who were of the highest quality. With so many people to see and thank, it is easy for the bride and groom to miss out on the food, but our wonderful servers made sure this didn't happen!
Vendor response to review
Thank you for your review. We enjoyed working with you and we're so happy you had a lovely wedding. FIB
The food at our daughter's wedding reception was amazing -- our guests were so impressed! The guests had a choice from 3 entrees -- steak, salmon, or vegetarian -- and everyone raved about the food! We had a tasting during the planning process and that was a lot of fun! They were also very accommodating with our requests for some of our guests who had allergies to certain foods. Their staff was also very professional and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend them!
Food In Bloom did an amazing job with our wedding. The beverages, hors dourves, dinner and cupcakes tasted incredible. The service was great, in fact, I hardly noticed they were there, yet everything was done when it needed to be. I worked with Food in Bloom to keep the budget down and they had plenty of suggestions for how to do this. My only complaint is that sometimes my emails and phone calls weren't responded to as quickly as I anticipated. Also, I wish they offered an hor dourves display in addition to the passed hor dourves because there is always someone who misses the servers and gets nothing to eat before dinner. Overall, though, I was impressed!
The event staff was wonderful on the day of the wedding. They were very friendly, professional and accomadating for a wedding of 210 guests. The food tasted just as good for 210 guests as it did on the day of the tasting. Event planners were very professional and accomodating leading up to the event, but were so busy at times that it would be difficult to schedule meetings or replys were delayed.
I am so surprised that Food in Bloom is not the most popular caterer in Portland. Kris Kremers worked with me and was absolutely fantastic. She was always very prompt to respond to me, always made me feel like everything was under control, and super super helpful in the days leading up to my wedding. During those last few days, I ended up asking her so many questions, and having her take care of so many unexpected details. She was really helpful and so flexible.
Food in Bloom did a fantastic job with my food. I wanted everything to be fresh, seasonal, local, etc., and they accommodated that with no problem at all. The food was amazing! They also took care of some of the decor, all of the rentals, even the supplies for my off-site ceremony. The fact that they did all of this so smoothly definitely reduced my stress and work by 80%.
On top of that, they were about 25% cheaper than my estimates from other vendors with comparable menus (and much more flexible)!
Amazing food! Always fresh and delicious. A pleasure to work with.
