FAYE: 17TH MAY 2014: WEDDING AT OLD BALGOWAN

Dear Kirstin, Brad, Chef and the HFH team

Thank you SO much for all the effort you all put into the wedding yesterday.

It was such a wonderful day, and I have you to thank for a large portion of its success…Brad, you have one heck of a team!!!

The food was delicious, all the hiring in good condition, and the staff superb.

The guests raved about the food, esp the soup, prawn pate and main to name a few 😉 The only complaint I heard was that there weren’t enough pumpkin fritters! Heehee, they were such a hit (with me too ofcourse!!!!)

Thanks so much – it was such a pleasure to work with you as always, and the venue was also very impressed! Look forward to the next one. Have a great week and get some rest 🙂

Kind regards,

JOHN & MARIE WEDDING – 29TH MARCH 2014

Hi Kirstin.

Firstly let us say how fantastic your company performed in organising the marquee, catering etc for our wedding.

All our guests (without exception)said how excellent the food was including the presentaion which was outstanding.

The sevice too from Nelson and his team was impeccable.

Thank you all so so much.

Now the shortages…..

We still have 33 desert glasses, We did accidently damage the tressle table when it fell over as we were moving it and fell onto a sharp object, We are totally liable for all the costs of the damages and shortages.

Would it be possible for us to sort it out after we come back from honeymoon on the 14th.

We will also return the 33 glasses.

Once again thank you for everything you all did to make our day so special.

John & Marie.

CORPORATE BRAAI – 20TH MARCH 2014

Hi Kirsten,

I think my colleague Julie contacted you recently inquiring about catering on the 24thof May. I must say I was very impressed with both the service form you and your chef, as well as the final product. I was pleasantly surprised to find that he was very neatly dressed and laid out everything so neatly as well. The food was absolutely delicious and even the interesting watermelon and feta salad was amazing (I don’t like watermelon but I really enjoyed it J). You guys really came through for me on such short notice, so I recommend you when I can.

Aside from that, we may be having a braai at our office on Wednesday, in Umhlanga. So please let me know if you will be available. I don’t have the details as yet but will confirm much closer to the time if that’s okay.

Look forward to your response, chat soon.

Hi guys, I know I have said this a million times but thank you again fro an outstanding service! You guys rock! Kirsten(Kristen) you are thee best service provider we have had the pleasure of dealing with and I know I speak for Mike and Ruan when I say you did an incredible job. I also enjoyed your chef and his energy.

Food was plenty, food quality was great and guests didn’t feel cheated. We had not a single complaint with regards to catering. This is obviously the best news for you and us as this directly translates to repeat business for 2014. You are def without a doubt our number 1 contender for 2014! In 2014 we will look to outsource the entire catering./decor/hiring function and will certainly plan as early as this year.

All in all we had a great time, catering was excellent and really hope you never lose your charming ability to provide ‘home cooked’ meals for bulk events such as the July. Also hope your prices remain competitive and wish you all the best for the future.

See you soon.

Just to let you know that I will return the dishes to you on Monday between 9-10am. I didn’t feel comfortable leaving the dishes at the party venue as it wasn’t secure. Your driver did phone to collect today (Sun) but we were out. Hope that’s okay?

Please know that the food was divine and the driver was a gem = so friendly and helpful. I will definitely recommend your company and use you guys again.

The only thing that was forgotten was the tea urn but we made a plan so it wasn’t an issue. Don’t stress about a refund, I think I got value for money and more.

I would like to thank you for your outstanding service during my moms 60th Birthday party.

I have in my professional career been responsible for a number of major functions, and have never had such focused service and attention to detail. I must say the food was out of this world, and everyone was commenting on how amazing the decor of the food and especially the deserts formats were.

I on behalf of my family and friends want to take this opportunity to thank you both and Dustin for your friendly non invasive efficient manner in which you handled our function.

It will be an honour to recommend you to other people and I will definately use your services again.

I wish you every success in the future.

Hi Kirsten,

Thanks for your email. I am still waiting for confirmation from my client as to whether I have the go ahead to do the catering, will let you know as soon as I do.

The catering went well and I was very happy with everything. Just a pity nobody gave us directions so I got horribly lost and, in true “African” style 13h00 became 14h00. Brad looked exhausted and felt so sorry for them knowing they had a late night.

All in all everything went off well.

Many thanks

Dear Brad & Staff

LADIES TEA FUNDRAISER

Thank you so much for kindly agreeing to give us a 40% discount on all hire goods for the Peter Pan Pre-Primary School Ladies Tea Fundraiser. All 80 available tickets were sold before the day, and the morning itself was a total success. We had beautiful sunny weather and the Moms had a bit of time off, with interesting demonstrations, great displays and really delicious tea treats to enjoy.

We raised an astounding R9,000 which will be used to paint the classrooms and have new curtains made.

With the tremendous involvement of our sponsors – you – we were able to provide a memorable event and raise welcome funds for the school. Your support is much appreciated. Thank you again.

Kind regards,

Mrs Meghan Daniels

School Governing Body Vice Chairperson

MERCHISTON PREPARATORY SCHOOL GOLF DAY – 3 AUGUST 2012

On behalf of Merchiston Preparatory School we extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for your kind sponsorship towards the Merchiston Preparatory School Golf Day held on Friday, 3 August 2012 at the Victoria Country Club. We were also very grateful and appreciative for the most delicious lamb rolls at the hole for the players. This went down very well and without your contribution and support the day would not have been possible, and for this we are very grateful.

The day turned out to be a great success with and entry of 35 four balls, the weather was on our side and good spirit and fellowship abounded. The Merchiston Golf Day is a recognized event on the annual calendar and we look forward to your support and participation next year.

Hi Kirsten,

My apologies for the late response. I was just exhausted on the evening and was getting a bit annoyed with the girls eating / slouching around / ect. in the back because they’ve been told they need to eat before / after the function as they’re paid a large sum of money each and are expected to earn it a little more than what they have been doing. I also can’t really chase our staff members away when they want food when they can see the girls munching away. But it’s not your fault at all, at the next function if they do not comply, they’ll be sent home / not used again.

I will sort the cheque out for the damaged items and deposit it for you.

Thanks so much for yet another beautiful evening.

Kind Regards,

Hi Kirstin
Thanks so much for your email – I have been meaning to call you all morning!!!
The spit braai was amazing! Everyone absolutely raved about the meat and food and said the lamb was just too delicious! There were even leftovers after everyone had stuffed themselves full which Ashley and I have been munching on! I can’t thank you and your guys enough! I didn’t have to stress about a thing and it was all ready and beautifully hot on time. Thank you so very much! I will definitely be recommending you to everyone and I’m sure if any of those guests every need a spit braai Saturday evening will be the first to pop into their minds!

Thanks so much to your guys too! They were so great! I feel extremely bad as I thanked them when they were done and then went off to get them a cooldrink and got sidetracked by friends. When I finally got back outside they were driving off so they must think I am awful for forgetting them! Please would you thank them for me as I really appreciate their hard work and please tell them that everyone raved about their cooking.

Thanks again and hopefully I will have another excuse for a party soon!
Take care,
Adrienne Weerheim

Dear Brad, Nelson and the rest of the Wooden Spoons team

Thank you so much for your hard work at Michele and Dave’s wedding on Saturday. The guests all raved about the food and the couple was thrilled with the outcome!

Well done on a job so well executed in terms of the food – a difficult job pulled off seamlessly! Michele mentioned that the guests were particularly impressed with both the amount of food provided, as well as the quality of it. I was told yesterday that many people skipped breakfast because they were not yet hungry 🙂

Thanks too Brad for making a plan with the tablecloths and for going the extra mile for this wedding.

Your effort and the team’s hard work certainly did not go unnoticed!

I look forward to working with you again.

Kind regards,
