From Set Up
and Everything In Between
To Clean Up
"It was a pleasure to work with all of you last night at our preview party. Your staff was incredibly helpful, professional & delightful – among the best I’ve seen in all my years of catering!  We will definitely call you as upcoming events/grand openings arise! "
- Ellie Spray
WholeFoods Marketing Team Leader

Happy day after a magnificent event! Yesterday, Fairway provided the hors d’oeuvres for our Villa Maria on The Avenue event at Richards of Greenwich.  The food was fabulous; there was a nice variety; and it was delivered on time.  Simply Serving did a wonderful job with setting up and with the presentation of the food.  You were very professional and had everything down to a science.  Your staff was very gracious and helpful, and kept the stations supplied.  You are true to your e-mail address with “simply serving from set-up to clean-up” and you did everything to perfection.  Please extend my gratitude to all your staff.  Everyone gave rave reviews, and hopefully we can go it again next year.  I can only add my prayers to my thanks, and ask the Good Lord to reward you in the way He knows best."

Villa Maria School

"I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job you and your staff did for Saturday evening's fundraiser gala.  It was truly a pleasure to watch you all move so easily and efficiently through the tables and your presence added just the right touch of class to our event.  We were very impressed with your professional expertise and you certainly made our responsibilities a lot easier!  Please expect a call again next year!"

"Simply Serving supplied the staff for our outdoor wedding in June 2008 and Tara Lee personally managed our event.  Simply Serving coordinated with our caterer, tent, tableware, florist and cake suppliers to ensure that deliveries were scheduled appropriately and that everything would go smoothly.  Weeks prior to our wedding, we sat with Tara and her partner Barbara to develop a detailed schedule for the wedding day.  She presented decisions that we had to make to fill in the gaps and verified the list of tableware items that we had ordered (thankfully, because we had forgotten to order some major items). The sense of relief that I felt when Tara arrived on our wedding day can't adequately be described.  She handled virtually everything from that point on, including finding the missing boutonnieres and the waylaid wedding cake.  In fact, I didn't even know that the cake delivery driver was lost until after the event because Simply Serving did such a great job of managing the issue and getting the driver to our house.  Once the event started, she and her staff were smooth, professional and unobtrusive.  She approached us with issues only when absolutely required and made sound judgment calls on everything else.  We trusted Tara with the success of our wedding and were thrilled with the results.   Being a professional project manager, I have high standards for planning and execution and I would give Tara and Simply Serving my unqualified highest level of recommendation."

"Both Manat & Christine were terrific! Very professional and hard working!  Couldn't have asked for better service for our Media Night. Thank you so much & we will definitely keep you in mind for any future events."
- T. Taylor, Super Suppers
Orange, CT

"My heartfelt thanks for providing a service with such supreme grace, kindness, and efficiency.  To know that the brunch following my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah service was being handled by you, enabled me to immerse myself in the one part of my weekend’s festivities that I cared most about and trust that the celebration following would flow beautifully.  You were supportive and understanding when I didn’t think I could handle one extra phone call the week of my event, and you took anything you could off my hands.  All the food looked and tasted fantastic and it was a class act all the way.  It will be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone who even hints at considering having a party catered."
- D. Alt

-A. Minks

"Thank you very much for your help with the celebration of my twenty years representing Connecticut's Third Congressional District.  The evening was a tremendous success only because of your hard work, and that of your staff.  You always come through for me.  You always add a touch of class and professionalism to my events.  I could not do it without you."
- Rosa DeLauro, Member of Congress
New Haven, CT

I am always so pleased with Simply Servings' help.  And you know I love Jill
and appreciate the outstanding job she does.  I have to say, though, this
event was a little challenging because I was not here to assist in the event
planning.  However, Jill and Jennie were outstanding.  They took charge of
everything masterfully.  The evening went so perfectly.  I felt like a guest
myself, in that I totally enjoyed the party.
- L. Carl
Westport, CT

"I cant even remember how I did these parties on my own before. I actually had a great time and was able to socialize. Tracey organized and got everything out in a seemless manner, and never appeared harried or stressed. In addition to the regular organization of the courses, she also anticipated needs before anyone could even realize there were needs. She was fantastic, went above+beyond, somehow knew where all my kitchen stuff was and didnt need to ask, and I never want to do a party on my own again!!!!!  We had several people from the party call today and mention how impressed they were with her! Thank you and we will be speaking to you before the next party."
- M. Welby
Milford, CT

"We were beyond happy with the staff you provided last night. Even our staff commented on how good they were. We here at the Inn would like to extend a big thank you to your staff for their professionalism, positive attitudes, hard work and enthusiasm. Last night's event was one of our largest and it went flawlessly. We couldn't have done it without your staff. We will definitely continue to use Simply Serving for our staffing needs in the future."
-K. Crosby, The Inn at Longshore
Westport, CT

"Words alone cannot adequately express the heartfelt gratitude for your personal touch and genuine concern.   From our brief initial conversation, you understood the deep and profound loss felt.  Please know how much I value and appreciate your willingness to take on our memorial reception on such short notice and for your extraordinary professionalism and kindnesses throughout.  You and your staff of great people added warmth and welcome to the event, you handled the time mix-up and wild weather with humor and grace, and you eased and comforted me and my family and friends."
-D.Murphy

"I am not sure how to thank you for this weekend.  I absolutely underestimated the amount of work that you  and your servers have to do and without you, I would have never have been able to enjoy such an important day in my daughter's life.  You made this possible and I am forever grateful for all your hard work and caring.  The Kiddush was fantastic.  More than I could have dreamed of.  Everyone loved the food, setup and service.  I usually like to do everything my way but I have to admit, your way is much, much better than mine!  The evening reception, for me, seemed to go flawless.  There were so many elements and you put them together beautifully.  Even when the fuse blew, you were calm and pleasant to talk to.  I would have freaked out!!!!!  Your staff was fabulous.   The clean up after, was the icing on the cake.  After several exhausting months of preparation, you enabled us to go home with our family and collapse, while you took care of everything.  I could not be any happier with Simply Serving.  Hiring you was the absolute best decision, by far, that I made in this huge event.  We look forward to our next event just to have the opportunity to work with you again. "
- K. Leibowitz
Woodbridge, CT

"The only reason we would not use the three women from Simply Serving LLC again is that we might invite them as GUESTS to our next party!  Shay, Jenny and Tricia were fabulous.  They knew exactly what to do, they knew how to prepare, serve, decorate in a way that exceeded even my parents' standards.  We cannot say enough good things about how efficient and wonderful each of them were.   The saying 'from setup to cleanup' fits exactly.  I cannot imagine the time that would have been spent washing all of the stemware alone. Everything was cleaned up before the last guest left.  They were amazing. Thank you for them."
- Orange, CT

"We want to thank you so very much for your help at our brunch following our daughter's wedding.  Your help was superb and all our guests commented on how fantastic you were.  The brunch was so very successful because of your expert service. We have told everyone how wonderful you were and have given your cards to our friends.  We certainly will call you again for future parties.  You made the whole day very special.  Thank you so very much!"
-J&C Thompson
Stratford, CT

"Because of Simply Serving, our daughter's Bat Mitzvah reception was a breeze.  We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves knowing that her party was in your capable hands.  Thanks for everything you did that day and for all your help the month leading up to the affair."
- R&M Itzler

"Before we even talked about a contract, you offered me great suggestions and I always felt you had my best interest in mind.  You and your staff helped make the day spectacular!  I am so impressed with your whole operation and would definitely hire you again."

"Thank you so much for everything!  Tara, Reenie, Leigh and Devon did a slam-bang job at my son's pre-wedding reception.   The hotel manager smoothed out and relaxed after he saw how professional everything was.

- K. Sullivan

"I want you to know that the BEST words I heard from my daughter-in-law is when she said, 'I have a caterer for you!'  At the party, Tricia and Amy were pleasant and courteous and were very efficient and professional.  Thank you, on behalf of me and my sisters, for making a special day so perfect!  Can we clone you?"
-L. Hirth
Shelton, CT

"Dear Barbara, you, Sean and Teresa did an absolutely amazing job on Saturday night.  Mike and I felt like guests at our own party and it was terrific!  You all thought of every detail, figured out where to find what you needed and whatever we hadn't thought of, and left us with a clean kitchen!!  We are so appreciative of your grace, good humor, and generous spirits. All three of you blended so perfectly in with the flow of the evening...in fact, you facilitated the flow!  Gosh, I just remembered that somehow all the candles in the yard got lit too!!  Thank you for noticing these little things and handling all of them!  We are living with the memory of this night for a lifetime; and are grateful for all you did to make it everything we wanted it to be."
