Many compliments and the venue, food and weather could not have been better that everyone had an enjoyable time. Thank you again to you Paula for the menu and making everything run smoothly.”

“Dear David and Nick,

WOW! I am beyond impressed by what your team accomplished last week and am so incredibly thankful for your partnership these past few months. Throughout the planning process, you came alongside our team to help shape the vision of each event and ensure that each moment was both celebratory and well executed. There were so many moving parts with three days of events and your team diligently kept track of all the details, even as things were changing up until the last minute. You dreamed big with us on things like the Bacow Family Roll cake, creating a block party that really felt like an event for the whole community, and thinking about layouts that best supported the goals of an event. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

While there were countless moments throughout the day where we saw Crimson show its best, a few compete for my favorite. How about flipping a tent from a complex breakfast set-up to a pre-set lunch for 900 in less than 90 minutes? Or what about the 1,600 pieces of roll cake created that made for an incredibly special (and emotional) moment for our president? Then there was the flexibility of your team to fire up a plain hamburger for a very important 3 year old or pull off a hot meal for a 130+ student performers. And probably most special to me was the seeing the Bacow Block Party come together, in all its fall fest glory, with the menu and décor you carefully pulled together. It was an inclusive and celebratory moment for all of Harvard and we continue to hear praise.

Thank you for all your hard work and efforts these past few months, and for keeping me laughing and well fed along the way J I hope you are proud of all that you and your team accomplished, I sure am.”

“Hi David and Nicholas,

I’ve heard nothing but good things from the team on how excellent your team executed the PA dinner on Friday. Thank you for partnering with us on such a special evening. Serving almost 400 people is a massive challenge in Widener but impressing them shows your professionalism, collaboration and commitment to excellence. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

I look forward to working with you in the future.”

“I wanted to thank you and your colleague Joan for producing a fabulous event for us this past Wednesday. Our guests loved the food! With more than 1,000 guests in attendance, the Crimson Catering team did a fantastic job keeping the food tables refreshed and organized. They did a fantastic job! Thank you, again, for all of your assistance.”
