Oh my goodness! The entire team at Twelve Baskets is wonderful. I have been working with them for years for high school graduations and events at church. When my daughter got engaged, the owner, John Bagge was the first vendor I called. John helped us find a venue and Event Specialist Vita Popach did the rest. She is always a delight to work with and was exceptionally prompt is answering all my questions, super friendly and very helpful. We put together a delicious menu at a fair price, definitely worth every penny. They worked with me on every aspect of the event, from providing beautiful vintage table decor to giving me choices about which napkin fold we preferred. Our wedding day site leader, Scott, was out-of-this-world great. We had the wedding at Dairyland in Snohomish, ceremony and dinner in the same space so we had a quick reset to do after the ceremony. Scott and his team helped do all that quickly while also serving our guests wonderful appetizers. He took care of everything so easily, it made my day as mother of the bride and wedding planner stress free. Our wedding party had their own server so they did not miss out on food while taking pictures after the ceremony. The dinner buffet, dessert station and drinks were so beautiful, worked perfectly with the vision we had for the day. The two comments I heard most from our guests were 1) the caterers are so attentive and friendly, and 2) the food is delicious. Best review of all came from the bride and groom. I asked them if their wedding day was everything they wanted- their response- better than they could ever have imagined. Thank you 12 Baskets for making our daughter's wedding day so special and worry free. Simply the best!!
Twelve Baskets Catering Response
Twelve Baskets Catering's reply: Thank you so much, Julie! So very kind of you to take the time to leave us a review! We so appreciate it!
We had our wedding at Wallace Falls Lodge in Gold Bar, WA. Because it was so far from Seattle, our catering vendor options were limited which is fine by me! (paralysis of too many options/too much choice is real). Twelve Baskets came recommended by our venue and we were really happy with how everything came out. Our event coordinator was responsive and helpful, had no problems making any amount of changes that I asked for whether large or small. She was nice and friendly during a tasting and answered all questions without issue. They were really flexible about providing their Northwest BBQ package meal option for dinner and making substitutions for our vegan/vegetarian friends, as well as accommodating to special guests with very special dietary needs or coming up with a kids menu. They did passed tray appetizers before dinner and people seemed into that, and serve yourself buffet so it kept the staffing (and costs) minimal. The food was delicious! I enjoyed every item and heard nothing but good feedback about it all from the guests. They send you a questionnaire when you start developing your meal options so they can get a good sense of how you want your night to go. I was so insistent that we do so much by ourselves to keep the staffing minimal, but it ended up that I think their staff were bored towards the end of the night! (We did our own set up/clean up for tables and chairs and I regret not asking them for a little more help with that!) They provided complimentary cake cutting which I thought was great, and packaged up your leftovers for you (ours lasted almost an entire extra week). We did our own self-serve beer and wine, and so unless you use their staff for bartending service, they are not able to help with replenishing stocks of alcohol, which I understand. I think the price per person was pretty fair for the quality of service and food that was served, and would recommend to others in the area.

About Twelve Baskets Catering

John Bagge grew up on a grain farm in Minnesota until his late teens when his family moved to Seattle. His early roots in gardening and farming made a tremendous impact on his love of food and hospitality. When he started Twelve Baskets as a restaurant back in 1976, he wouldn't have thought it would grow and become so successful. The company began catering in 1978 and the rest is history! We've catered thousands of events over the years and our love of the industry only grows stronger. Adding flavor to philosophy, our team contributes decades of culinary expertise to Twelve Baskets Catering. Whether you need an elegant dinner for 20 to 30, an affordable hor d'oeuvres buffet wedding reception for 350, an outdoor company picnic, or a casual lunch for your corporate meeting, Twelve Baskets Catering is here for you. We take great pride in our work and want your event to be as perfect as you do!
