Dear Jeanne,

Thank you, with all my heart, for all of your amazing contributions to our family gathering on Saturday! I can't sing your praises high enough!  Your food was delicious, your staff was ever so gracious, and all your attention to details was phenomenal! Any time I thought of something like getting waters out for people to drink or cream for coffee, you'd already thought of it all and made it available. Thank you, thank you.

I hope you heard and saw the standing ovation we all gave you (although I'm afraid you didn't because you were working so hard in the kitchen). Everybody in the family was completely "blown away" by you and your extraordinary level of service. I wish I could have had time to just sit and watch your artistry-in-action but tasting, seeing, delighting in all the fruits of your labor was the closest I could get. Thank you again and again.

And to think you did it all again last night for Willie Nelson!?!? How do you DO this? Realizing this is probably your busiest time of year, I worry about the demands of this pace on your sweet soul and only hope you find time for rejuvenation soon. You certainly out-do yourself in the helping your clients to enjoy themselves! So thank you for all your hard work, your creativity and conscientiousness, your delicious endeavors!

Dear Suzanne,
Joe & I want to thank you for the wonderful food and service you provided.  Words cannot adequately convey the professionalism of your staff.  We have received many positive comments about their "caring" service.
It was evident that each of you wanted this party to be special for us and it was. 
Thank you and best wishes for continued success.

Dear Jeanne,
Thank you so much for all that you did to make the bridal shower a wonderful one.  The food was delicious, the menu perfect, and the staff were both friendly and efficient.  We could not have asked for more.  Please extend our thanks to all involved.
See you at our next event,
Ann C.
Good morning Jeanne,  Where to begin?  We cannot thank you enough for the fantastic event my Mother's birthday party  was  thanks to you and your outstanding staff.   It was wonderful to be the recipients  of your professionalism, skills, courtesy, efficiency, thoughtfulness etc, etc. The display and presentation of all the meal-- from the passed Hors d'eouvres to the serving of the cake was excellent. Nothing but rave reviews from everyone about how very delicious everything was.  You were little magic elves-- came--preformed your magic--whisked all the evidence of hard work away- and left the world a sparkling place.  Once again our sincere thanks. You made my Mom's #96 truly memorable!  Gloria P.  Farmington, CT

Pastel’s Catering took care of two very important events for our family recently. Our daughter was graduating from high school and I wanted to focus on our guests and outdoor activities and not preparing or setting up the buffet. I met with Jeanne a few months before the party and told her what I was looking for. Pastels not only offered wonderful menu items, but also as important they offer different ways of working with the customer.  For me, I needed the food prepared and set out just before the guests arrived. The presentation of the food was fabulous including table cloths and flowers/greens and the dishes themselves were outstanding. There was more than enough food to satisfy everyone there and left-overs for us as well.

A few months later I was hosting a birthday party and wanted hors d’oeuvres and desserts but again I didn’t want to prepare or serve the food. Jeanne recommended several warm and cold options and staffed the party with two servers. Hot and cold hors d’oeuvres flowed for two hours and everyone at the party raved at not only the food but the attentiveness of the serving staff. Again, the presentation and food was outstanding.

Both events were a huge success and a huge burden was lifted from my shoulders when I contracted Pastels for the events. I would highly recommend them for any type of event that requires food, be it a formal sit down dinner, an outdoor barbeque, or a casual open house. I continue to be very impressed with the quality of their food, customer service and professionalism.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything you've done for us in the weeks and months leading up, but especially for your fantastic execution this past Saturday.  Our guests have nothing but positive things to say about your food, and the bit Lyndsay and I had was perfect.  I really appreciate you truly working with our ideas and designing and producing a dinner that was exactly what we wanted.  Please let me know if you ever need a reference, as I would be happy to provide a positive one for a future client. 
Best Regards,

Dear Jeanne:
I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your services.  The food was exquisitely prepared and beautifully served. The tenderloin was so tender and moist, as was the salmon, and the sauces enhanced their taste. The salads were a big hit and everyone raved about the rice salad, wishing they had the recipe, as well as the field greens and pasta salad. Our guests said they had never been to a nicer party. The passed hors d'oeuvres were great and served graciously. The desserts were devoured and all ended well!
I would not hesitate to have you cater again for us in the future. 
You were a pleasure to work with, and very responsive and accommodating.

Hi Suzy,

Thanks so much for the delicious food and immensely professional and gracious service on Saturday at Moses’s Bar Mitzvah. Everyone complimented me on the quality of the luncheon and many people said how lovely and helpful you and your staff were. It was wonderful to be able to relax and enjoy the day, knowing we were in such capable hands.
