Wedding Supplier (Caterer): Blue Petals Catering

Caterer: Blue Petals Catering 
We were assisted by Remy Oyao (pre-wedding event specialist) & Rey Aguilar (Head Waiter during the wedding)
Contact: bluepetalscatering.com
Rating: 5/5   (both pre-wedding and on-the-day service) 
Package: P70,220 (160 pax)



Ghe and I scheduled for a food taste test last January 2013.



Blue Petals Catering offers the following packages (first 100 persons):

Silver      (*P43,500; P225 in excess)
Diamond (*P45,000; P270 in excess)
Platinum (*P50,500; P310 in excess)

* Price exclusive of 10% catering charge



We were actually eyeing for Diamond. With a P1,500 difference from Silver, guests can already have two kinds of sweets. 

However, we were served with Beeftips with Mushroom, Glazed Spareribs, Fish Fillet with Tartar Sauce, and Brownies during the taste test -  all choices from their Silver Package. 

Beeftips with Mushroom and Glazed Spareribs



Fish Fillet with Tartar Sauce


Brownies


We were delighted with the food so we chose Silver for our wedding:

Beeftips with Mushroom
Glazed Spareribs
Herb-Roasted Chicken
Fish Fillet with Tartar Sauce
Baked Macaroni  
Steamed Rice
Leche Flan
Iced Tea - 2 rounds

Ghe also suggested to have a chocolate fondue. We got Package 1 (good for 60-80 persons) which includes 1 unit of 20"chocolate fountain, 2 kilos Belgian Callebaut chocolate (white, brown, dark), choices of 2 fruits and 3 non-fruit dippings.


We had brown chocolate, cream puffs, cream wafer cubes, marshmallows, apples and grapes.

Table topper (motif), choice of centerpiece with fresh flower arrangement, round mirror and 3 tea lights
•Principal sponsors' table with fresh flower arrangement, gift and registration table
•Covered chairs with bow sashes (motif)

Blue Petals Catering did not put any candles in their centerpiece. Too bad, RJMC is strict on lighting any in the function hall.
 
This is how it should look like. You can check their site for other samples: http://bluepetalscatering.com/gallery.htm


There are many reasons why you should book Blue Petals Catering. Here's my list:
 
I was fretting over last minute instructions like putting vinyl records as part of the centerpiece and changes on the floor plan / table arrangement but Ms. Rhemz was just cool.

On the wedding day, Sir Rey Aguilar served us refreshments just before our presentation. Talk about initiative since Ghe and I did not take breakfast.


Blue Petals Catering knows the ins and outs of setting-up at Malate Church.

I got feedback from friends and other guests that food was awesome.

So if you're looking for affordable catering needs plus service extraordinaire, Blue Petals Catering is a top choice.

  1. Catering services play a vital role in any event or party. A good catering service injects life into any party.

    1. I definitely agree with that. An event will be memorable and more special if there's good food. Thanks for visiting my site.

  2. This is the worst caterer in Metro Manila. We've hired caterers before but the service provided by Blue Petals is the worst. Their waiters are late and untidy (the tattooed head waiter had a wound on his hand very visible to the guests while serving food). Their table cloths are dirty and with cigarette holes (they looked like its recycled from a previous night's party). Their food tastes bad. They forget to put flower center-pieces on the table. This happened on December 28 at my daughter's birthday party. We are their 20th customer for the day. The account officer Jonalyn and the owners didn't even have the decency to make formal apologies and instead they took us to the barangay office for their complaint. They sounded like they were the ones who are faultless in all the chaos that they cause us. They have very BAD business practice and they are very unprofessional in their dealings with customers.

    1. Hi Ritchie, I'm sorry to hear that you had that kind of experience but Blue Petals was very professional during our wedding. We and the guests enjoyed the food so much, the table was set up according to what was discussed and there were value added services too! Maybe yours was just a case of bad timing. Well I guess everyone can learn a thing or two from this. Thanks and I appreciate your honest opinion.
