Testimonials

I can’t say enough about the work of Arla Hesterman and Aharona caterers.
She and her team catered a fund-raising gathering that was a huge success in all ways. From the very beginning Arla was  flexible and willing to revise menu options to meet our sponsoring group’s tastes and budget. After seeing the site, Arla had many helpful suggestions about traffic flow and how best to use our event space. She and her team arrived early with ample time to prepare, and set 2 beautiful tables of food items—very artfully displayed, and tastefully cooked. The passed appetizers were terrific—and Arla was able to work with our volunteer serving staff to orient them to the task just prior to the event.

Many of those in attendance were impressed with the classy display of food, and the gracious offerings of passed appetizers–which helped put them in a generous frame of mind—which contributed to the beyond-expectations success of our event.

My reception was perfect because of Arla.  She got me my dream venue, and the food and flowers were better than I could have imagined. She even gave me tips on ways to cut costs, and when we forgot to bring a knife for the wedding cake, she was right there with a backup!

Aharona Catering is the best way to throw a party. All I have to do is dial her number and Arla takes care of everything.
