Business Events: Jody

Creative Cravings has done it again! As an executive administrator and event planner, I am often searching for vendors to help create a perfect event. Each event I help to create requires a uniqueness which inevitably leads to a large vendor list to meet each unique need. However, whether a small event or a large gala - Creative Cravings is my go to caterer!  

The Prep - The owners, Julianne and Melodie always take time to listen. The menu they create centers around this ability to hone in on what the nature of the event requires and the guests they serve. Upon the menu review- they are always open to suggestions and customer satisfaction is number one!

The Presentation - According to each event, the presentation is fitting - to a volunteer luncheon/ training with baskets, colorful linens, and lemonade - to gala's with black and crimson linens, and sterling silver chafing dishes- their style is impeccable. Each menu item not only tastes delicious - their color and texture carries an artists touch.

The Food - What can I say? Always wonderful! From a cranberry turkey sandwich to braised short ribs, colorful roasted herb vegetables, garlic mashed potatoes, and their Chicken Parmesan Roulade, the guests are always more than satisfied and the meal itself becomes a topic of conversation!

The Service - DELIGHTFUL!  A wonderful mix of  light and friendly but not intrusive. I have used Creative Cravings with passed appetizers, plated meals, to buffet, served buffet, and dessert stations - ALWAYS friendly and helpful, always concerned with how the customer is enjoying the event.

The Cost - Creative Cravings does not just cater their food, but they cater to each events budget. Always appreciated.

This review may seem over the top but they are simply over the top!

I love, love, love Creative Cravings and highly recommend them!

Dinner: Arnette B and Gay T.

Courteous and helpful to the max as we selected our menu items, planned the venue and timing and began our evening of celebration with a dinner that pleased everyone. These lovely ladies helped set a perfect tone for a perfect evening.  We are planning on having Creative Cravings return again and again.

Rehearsal Dinner: The Parsons Family

WOW! We used them for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner (50 people). The food was fabulous and the staff was over the top! So pleasant to work with them and they pair their food well! We would definitely use them for another event. We got so many compliments from our family and friends. We will recommend them to anyone, whether it's a simple gathering or a grand gathering.

Large Events: Women's Ministry, Christ Community Church, Laguna Hills

Creative Cravings catered our 120 person event on November 15, 2014. The food was amazing and delicious. There was plenty of food for all and the presentation was beautiful!!! The price fit perfectly in our budget. The Staff was friendly, honest and reliable. We will definitely hire Creative Cravings again! We highly recommend them as Top Notch caterers in the Saddleback Valley!!

Memorial Service Dinner

I was faced with making a lot of decisions for my Mom after my Dad passed away. Having to hire a caterer for a funeral reception was not something I've done before.  So I jumped on Yelp and found Creative Cravings!  From the minute I saw their menu and reviewing their website I had a good feeling and after speaking with the owner I felt even better.  Melodie made me feel like she had everything under control and she did not disappoint!  As soon as my guests began dining they were commenting how wonderful the food was.  Everything was prepared and presented as planned and I was quite impressed!  I recommend Creative Cravings highly and you won't be sorry!
