Having never used a caterer before I did not know what to expect, but I thought "How can I go wrong, I want to be a guest at my own party?" I called. From the first phone conversation I was put at ease. Mary Ellen has been doing this for a while now, and she really knows her stuff! The party was a great success, the food was out of this world, and the service was extremely professional. I even think my kitchen was cleaner than before they arrived. And, the best part, my bill was 20% less than what I said my budget was!!!! I will not entertain without Be Your Own Guest ever again (before they left I booked my husbands birthday party).
