"Perfect choices for 30-year-olds"
"We hired Marylynn and her team for my daughter's backyard engagement party. During COVID, everything takes on a different shape than you had imagined. Marylynn worked closely with us to make it happen and run smoothly and safely. Everything went well and the guests really liked the food. Their favorites were the Mac n' cheese, flatbread with porcini mushrooms/cheese and the lobster brioche. Desserts were great too. Manny, our chef, was excellent and is very personable. Thanks for your service and advice along the way!"

"Everything to the littlest details was perfect!"
"Marylyn, owner of Juste Hors Doeuvers, and her team did a wonderful job catering my daughter’s wedding shower on July 11th. We needed to make last minute changes for both the shower, wedding guest lists and venues due to COVID. Both ceremonies became back yard tent events. They were professional, friendly and the food was delicious. Marylyn was extremely helpful in developing the perfect menu and making recommendations on the rentals, which were awesome. They knew exactly what to set up where and were sure to accommodate social distancing requirements. I could not have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you, Marylyn and team!"

"Marylyn and her staff were just amazing!"
"They (JHD) came into my home and took over the kitchen! I didn't have to lift a finger! The food was delicious and there was plenty of it! The salmon and dill sauce was amazing. The pork quesadillas were delicious! Ryan, the bartender, was great and made sure the glasses were full! The Sangria was delicious! I would recommend them highly!!"

"The food was truly exceptional (the eggplant stacks, stuffed mushrooms – and the pears on toast – were outrageously good!"
"I ate so many amazing appetizers, I was too full for the wonderful tacos (though Bob and I have been enjoying them immensely ever since). And, the service was seamless and gracious and you were right, I loved everyone on the team. They left my kitchen spotless, with stacks of astonishingly good leftovers. I’m sure you’ll get more business from our guests, who raved about the food. I’m SO happy I found you! I cannot thank you enough for all your help with the shower, which was a huge success!"

"Marylyn made the elegant party (baby shower) for my beloved niece truly elegant."
"The food was magnificent! Delicious, beautiful, interesting and graciously served. She was attentive throughout the process without being a nudge - arrived right on time as promised and left my home neat and tidy with nothing left for me to do. The only hard part about Juste Hors D’oeuvres is spelling Hors D’oeuvres! And please ask Marylyn to make the bacon baskets - spectacular."

"Marylyn is great to work with and always available to answer questions in the planning stages."
"Juste Hors D'Oeuvres catered my baby shower - a co-ed cocktail party - in Manhattan and everything was flawless! On the day of the event, the staff was prompt, professional and polite. The food was delicious, and guests asked for their contact information as they were so impressed by the hors d'oeuvres and lunch. The event ran so smoothly from set-up to clean-up. I would highly recommend Juste Hors D'Oeuvres for your next party!"

"We (the family) and all the guests were delighted with the food and your staff!"
"Hi Marylyn, Thank you so much for your kind note. We (the family) and all the guests were delighted with the food and your staff! Thank you for helping me make Charlotte feel so special for her bridal shower, I know it was very meaningful to her!"
Lauren Hochman | Fairfield, CT
"Many thanks for making Renee's bridal shower an event to remember!"
"The food was delicious and presented in such a lovely manner with beautiful fresh cut flowers everywhere. Also, thank you for your extra assistance with the set-up and break-down and with hiring and making arrangements with the supply vendor. Her bridal party especially enjoyed being able to help to choose the dishes that were ultimately served! I highly recommend your services to all!"

"Very helpful and easy to work."
"Juste Hors D'Oeuvres did a wonderful job for my daughter's Bridal Shower. The price was very reasonable, and Marylyn was very helpful and easy to work with planning the event."
Penny Nalband | Litchfield, CT
"You and Neal were so easy to work with and made the day delightful."
"Dear Marylyn, Thank you so much for doing such a beautiful job catering my double baby shower. I received many compliments on how friendly and accommodating you both were. The food was delicious - the pumpkin lasagna was to die for! Your special decorative touch of flowers was beautiful. You made it so easy for me to be able to enjoy the day and the mommies-to-be have some very special memories."

“Two events back-to-back.”
“Hi Marilyn, Just want to let you know you hit another home run out of the field. After fabulously catering my daughter’s baby shower 2 weeks ago on June 30th, you did it again for my husband’s 70th birthday party last night (July 13th) with a little more than 2 weeks lead time. On both occasions my guests raved about the food and indulged themselves with gusto and pleasure. In addition your wait staff did an outstanding job of pulling the affair off effortlessly. (Last night that was a challenge, given that the party was under a tent and it did rain from time to time.) They certainly knew how to pace themselves and get the job done seamlessly. Thanks again for your excellent work.”
Susan Bandes | Cortland Manor, NY
"Bridal Shower truly a memorable day."
"Marylyn: You are a joy to work with. Your flexibility, your professionalism and your wonderful personality — not to mention the awesome food — all made my daughter’s bridal shower truly a memorable day. That’s why my daughter hired you immediately to help make my granddaughter’s 1st birthday a success as well."
Mary Cancellaro | Stormville, NY
"Our friends described it (the baby shower) as 'elegant,' and I gave your name to one guest from Scarsdale, who’s a wonderful cook but often wants help when she throws a party!"
"Dear Marylyn, we were very pleased with the food and with the choices we made. People very much enjoyed the shrimp & avocado salad, as you promised, as well as the spinach-feta puffs. I personally kept eating the fruit salad that day as well as the next. The fruit was all so fresh and delicious. In the end, we served all the food at the same time, which worked well, and there was a good variety. Your good food helped make our gathering special."
Norma Shore | Hastings-on-Hudson, NY
"My shower was perfect in every single way!"
"One of the best parts was how relaxed and involved my mother, maid of honor and bridesmaids could be. Marylyn made it easy for them to focus on enjoying the party (and the delicious food she prepared,) by stepping in and taking care of it all on her own. Not only was the food a smash with all of the guests, but the presentation was beautiful and added such a personal touch to each plate. We both highly recommend Marylyn and Just Hors D’Oeuvres for your very special occasions."
Samantha Crowle, Bride | Cheshire, CT
"I can’t begin to thank you enough for your amazing food and your assistance with my daughter’s shower."
"Dear Marylyn: While looking for a caterer for my daughter’s bridal shower, I was very fortunate to find Juste Hors D’Oeuvres. The owner, Marylyn, was very helpful from choosing the amazing menu to preparing it, serving and refilling dishes as needed. I can’t begin to tell you how many compliments I received on the food! As the mother of the bride, she enabled me to relax and enjoy this very special day and not worry about a thing."
Joanne Crowle, Mother of the Bride
