It was a pleasure to have Chef Doris  as my Chef for my 35th birthday.  The food was AMAZING and she  made sure that I have everything I  needed to have a successful event.  I will definitely use Chef Doris again!

Doris and her team were simply AMAZING!  I Booked 2 Parties 2 Days in a row but only  had them Serve on the first Day and provide the  food for the Second Day to save on cost.  Well I  missed them the 2nd day! They are hard workers  that did it with ease! Loved them and so did our  guests! They will absolutely be back again for their  delicious food and know that I won’t have to be worried about anything but having a good time! Thank you Doris and crew! Love you!!!

Chef D!  Thank you so much for a wonderful event.   As usual,  you and your Team worked things so well.  My family has decided that you and your team are officially family now too!  Thank you for everything; your professionalism,  level head, and making the day special and memorable.   Kudos to your team: The Awesome Servers, for their hard work,  courteous service and  personal table side service; nice touch and very much appreciated!  Thanks to all!  I will definitely be in touch soon, sometime in October for a  Cocktail Sip with Passed Hor d’oeuvre Event

Now That Was A Great Party showed up and showed out!! Showed up on time, began working immediately, very social, beautiful presentation, followed all CDC Health and Sanitation Guidelines, even matched face mask and chef hats to my party theme! Literally EVERYONE at my party thought the food was DELICIOUS and prepared and presented superbly. Chef Doris is a professional, personable and warm person, I felt like we were old friends! I will definitely be using her service again soon! …and so should you!!

Doris and her team took care of everything. I didn’t have to worry about anything on the day of my daughter’s wedding. Their service was phenomenal. When I say they took care of all of our needs is an understatement. The food was delicious and served with a smile. They made sure every one of my guests was taken care of.  From the bartender to the wait staff everyone was so professional. At the end of the party again I didn’t have to worry. She even took care of the clean up without batting an eye. My kitchen was left clean as a whistle. I will certainly do business with Doris and her team in the future.

Everything was great! Chef Doris and her staff were very professional, helpful and the food was delicious! All our guests commented on how good the food was! Doris was very responsive and easy to communicate when discussing our needs for the party! I highly recommend.

I used “NOW THAT WAS A GREAT PARTY” for a surprise 60th birthday party for my husband. Doris came to my house and helped me with the menu. She had lots of great suggestions and provided great support along the way. She was always quick to respond whenever I had any questions. On the day of the party she and her Servers came to my house and took care of everything – they set up, helped serve, and cleaned up. They were all so pleasant and my guests loved them and the delicious food they provided. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend!

Doris and Now That Was a Great Party was the perfect addition to our annual BBQ! She literally took on EVERYTHING including Decorations, Party Favors, Tables & Chairs, Food & Drinks, Supplies, and Breakdown of the event. She was communicative and professional at all times. I’d recommend her 3x over!

“Doris catered a holiday party for 25 guests. Her communications were excellent. More importantly her food was yummy, plentiful, and a huge hit with my guests.”

“We had a backyard wedding for 60 people. Doris was easy to work with, had great ideas and everything was as I’d hoped and envisioned. The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff was amazing and I got compliments on everything. Doris would have helped more, and offered but I love to do the details and rental etc. She would have done “soup to nuts” if I’d wanted her to. Loved every minute and will hire Now That Was a Great Party again and I think my family would too! Thanks Doris and your Gals for making it easy and my dream.”

“Doris and her staff did an OUTSTANDING job making sure that my 40th birthday party was perfect!! From the time we met and discussed my vision I felt comfortable in knowing that she would be able to see things through. Anytime I contacted Doris with questions, concern, or suggestions she was available to assist me. On the evening of my party Doris and her staff worked effortlessly to decorate and set up my venue. Everything came together just as I imagined. The food was so SUPERB that many of my guest still rave about how tasty It was. Every one left saying “NOW THAT WAS A GREAT PARTY”!! Thank you again to Doris and her staff for making my 40th Birthday Party one that myself and guest will never forget.”

“Ms Doris did our Thanksgiving dinner and it was amazing! She is the ultimate professional and a fantastic chef! She was easy to work with, very accommodating and patient (we had a few last minute menu changes). Honestly this was the best Thanksgiving meal I’ve had in years. The amount of food could have fed twice as many people, but we don’t mind eating leftovers, since they are delicious. Would use her again and highly recommend to anyone that is considering catering.”

“Doris catered my small wedding dinner. Doris and her daughter were fantastic! They arrived exactly on time and had delicious appetizers ready for us shortly thereafter while we all got ready. We were able to leave to go get married on the beach and we left with confidence that we would have a great meal upon our return. Doris had our first course of refreshing lemon sorbet on the table within minutes of our arrival. The rest of meal as well as their outstanding service and attention that they paid to us and our guests exceeded our expectation. All in all we had a great experience using Doris and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again or recommend her to others. Planning was also super easy as we were able to plan a menu through a series of email exchanges and brief phone conversations”

“Five stars doesn’t do them justice! Our experience with Doris and everyone at ‘Now That Was A Great Party’ was outstanding. Doris was a consummate professional from the very first email to the very last moments of our event. Their food was absolutely devoured and received rave reviews from our guests! Doris made such an effort to create a menu that reflected our vision for the day- even taking on special requests. She was open, patient, kind and offered great and helpful suggestions. While this time around we only hired ‘Now That Was A Great Party’ for catering- I know that they do full event planning, and based on my experiences, I would be extremely confident having them plan my event from start to finish. We had a great feeling right from the start about ‘Now That Was A Great Party’, and about business owner, Ms. Reid-Worthington, and our instincts were spot on. We’re looking forward to working with ‘Now That Was A Great Party’ for many years to come!”

“Doris did a great job! Not only did she ask me what I wanted. She made a sample of the centerpiece. She made the changes I asked for. She visited the site before the event so she know what the place looked like. I couldn’t be happier with her. She is very friendly and didn’t mind when I called to talk about any changes. I plan to use her again.”

Diana L.December 2014

“Doris made my centerpieces for my 5th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal and they were AMAZING!!! She gave me everything that I asked for and more. The price was Great and the work was impeccable. Definitely will be doing future business with Mrs. Doris! Thanks Again XO”

“Doris helped my husband plan my surprise 46th birthday. OMG she did an amazing job. My favorite color is purple and she made sure ever aspect of the party reflected that. The candy station was a big hit with the guests, and the little something extra she did made it an unforgettable evening. I can truly say, ” Now That Was A Great Party”!!!”

Cheryl D. November 2014

“Exceptional, Outstanding. Two words that comes to mind. Doris planned my husband’s 70th birthday party at the Crystal Plaza. I could not have asked for anything more. From finding the venue, designing the invitation, decor, music, menu and yes, the ‘ENTERTAINMENT”. An event still being talked about by all those in attendance. If you dream it, she can do it. She is very professional with her work. Only one other thing I can say, I thought I had a fantastic 60th birthday celebration. but my husband’s 70th was off the chart. “NOW THAT WAS A GREAT PARTY”. I highly recommend her for your next event.”

Betty D.April 2014

“When I started working with Doris, my plans weren’t quite solid. She was very patient with me as I changed decisions, places and and even my dates!! She was always very calm, professional and quick to adjust to my craziness!!! She even suggested things to me, that I completely overlooked, that turned out to add a nice touch to my big day!! She is a great person to work with!!!”

“Very professional, but also very personable & relaxed. Was prepared with ideas & settings. this was a small dinner party, about 20 people. the table setting had a Fall deco & was quite lovely. The food, some catered, some prepared by party planner, was delicious. The quests were very impressed. I would definitely request Mrs. Worthington’s services again!”

Vivian J.February 2014

“When I went to Doris I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do for my baby shower, I just knew I wanted something different & unique. Every idea she came up with was amazing: my centerpieces and candy table were the hits of the shower. Her service was excellent, she is professional. I can say “Now That Was A Great Party”

I hired Chef Doris and her team at “Now That Was A Great Party” to cater my sister’s 75th surprise birthday party. It was by far the best decision I could have made. I found their catering service on ThumbTack. All the coordination was done long distance; by telephone, text and Email. The service is Top Notch. They lived up to the words on the website. They were very professional, knowledgable and attentive to their customer’s catering needs. The table displays were beautiful. The food was delicious.
We are very grateful to Chef Doris and her team: “Now That Was A Great Party”
