Thank you so much for all the fantastic food at our wedding! All of our guests were raving about the great food and beautiful layout of the spread. We also wanted to thank you for coordinating with India Palace. That made my mother very happy that we were able to have both American and Indian food. You were such an easy caterer to work with.

Solie –

I just wanted to send you a quick note and thank you for your person touches at my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah at Temple Israel. You made my “winter wonderland” dreams come true. I can’t thank you enough for those beautiful ice columns with the candles. All of my guests raved at how beautiful everything was. The silver samovars for the coffee and hot cocoa added such elegance to my luncheon. They were gorgeous! As wonderful as the décor was, your food was even better! My guests kept complimenting how delicious the luncheon was even in to the evening event. It was such a pleasure to work with you, Heikki and the entire Deco staff. Everyone was so friendly, accommodating, and professional. You made my event perfect and so very memorable!!

Thank you again!

Heikki & Soile and all of the Deco Staff,

Wishing you all happy holidays and a wonderful New Year! Thank you for helping make 2015 one of the best. Jordan and I are so happy we decided to have you cater our wedding. The food was AMAZING! We had heard the rave reviews, but it wasn’t until we were enjoying our special wedding dinner that we realized what a treat your food and staff are! We can not tell you all of the compliments we have received from friends & family.

All the best, Megan & Jordan

Dear Heikki & Entire staff at Deco Catering,

Thank you so much for a beautiful Kiddush Luncheon. We received so many compliments from our guests and you made it all so easy!! Just 2 phone calls and everything was perfect.

Thank you, Archelle

Honestly, I do not know where to start… words won’t do justice as to how I feel about Deco’s food, presentation and service at my daughter’s wedding. The photos of your food are worth a thousand words. As you know I have been in the hospitality/real estate industry over 40 years and I have seen it all when it comes to food. However now I can honestly say “no I have not seen it all until I found Deco”. I have been to award winning dinners with dignitaries and famous people all 5 star level events. Not one of those meals could hold a “candle” to Deco catering. You exceeded our expectations and our guests were impressed and astounded with your creativity and beauty of the presentation. The food was impeccable with the perfect seasonings, flavors and freshness.

The butler passed horsdeourves were over the top amazing and added the perfect touch of class and elegance to our social hour with the harpist. The plated salad was beautifully served and the only way to appreciate the true beauty of your salad. We were so glad we had it plated verses on the chef’s table (buffet). The chef’s table had a wonderful variety of various foods that accompanied the stuffed chicken, salmon wellington and vegetable torte. People went back for 2nds and 3rds. You are incredibly generous with your portions. The desserts were incredible and almost too pretty to eat. The dessert display was gorgeous. People looked in “awe” at the Scandinavian Strawberry Torte – decorated with fresh blueberries and strawberries giving a red, white blue affect for the holiday week. The pride you take in your work and business shows through your artistry. We are fortunate Deco catering is right here in Mpls/St Paul. I am so proud and grateful to have you as the caterer for my daughter’s wedding.

Every step of the way Heikki was responsive, informative and professional. You and your team are hard working with attention to detail. Your professionalism and customer service is exceptional. You must know that I have had guests send me “thank yous” for such an elegant evening with extraordinary and amazing food. I have never heard of guests sending “thank yous” after a wedding. That is an honor and “high compliment” to you and your staff.

I am so thankful to you and your staff for making Lindsay and Elliott’s wedding day truly special and memorable! The entire day was magical from the stately building itself, the décor, the harpist and
the food. Thank you and your team for playing such a vital role in the success of the day!

Kindest Regards,
Lorah and Jerry (Lindsay’s parents)

Heikki, You, your mom & your team at Deco are AMAZING! 🙂 Your service, support and the quality of your food was so good. We are so happy that you & Deco were a big part of our wedding. The wedding day was fantastic and we are so excited for our future ahead.
Thank you for your hard work & support.

Sincerely,
Chris and Lindsey

On top of that, the presentation was beautiful and the serving staff was great. We could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks for making our wedding dinner perfect.

Thank you, dear Soile, for all you did to make our 50th anniversary party special! The food was outstanding. My daughter-in-law said, “One of my top 5 best meals ever!” She can name them! Many many positive comments from family and guests.

Your presentation was amazing! Two different guests said it reminded them of your mid-summer party in Martha Stewart magazine. Wish I would have seen it.

Thank you for the wonderful cake! It was beautiful and one of the most delicious many in our family had ever eathen -including me.

Thank you also for serving the salads and vegetables. Every roasted veggies was eaten and we fried potatoes for breakfast and made a salad in the evening. The tent was left up and we enjoyed our deco picnic for a couple of extra days.

It was all so lovely that it is difficult to adequately thank you and to convey to you how happy we are with your big part in our event!

How blessed we are to have a friend like you!

We had so many people compliment us on the meal saying not only was that the best meal that they’ve ever had a wedding but that they would eat your food daily if they could.

I’m so impressed and so thankful for all you did to make our wedding day so special and so memorable. They say the way to people’s hearts is through their stomachs……….and your staff, your amazing food, and great experience did just that.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

All the best to you both.
Sincerely, Mary Esau

Hello Soile and Heikki,

Our wedding event was awesome, and so many, many people commented on the food and how wonderful it was…everything! Over and over we heard the same comments about how delicious it was and often saying it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Our guests also loved the stations and the opportunity to select from so many varieties of things…all delicious!

Thanks you so much for your wonderful service as well. I was very busy interacting with our guests soI didn’t have much opportunity to see the
people doing all the work, but they made everything go very smoothly. Amy
and Raymond thought everything about their wedding was “perfect” including
the food; they loved it! Thank you so very much!

My son and new daughter-in-law were married last weekend at Aria and you catered the event.I just wanted to tell you that the food was amazing! I have been in event planning for 20 years and never have I had such wonderful food. The passed food at the reception was amazing and the servings were so generous, that doesn’t happen often, if ever. The dinner presentation was fabulous from beginning to end. Everything looked and tasted fresh and again the servings were generous. Everyone at my table was raving about the food. I as a guest I appreciated it all, but being in this business I want you to know I recognize the effort put into producing a quality product, as well as the sense of joy and accomplishment in your work. I would refer your team to anyone who asked. Thank you again so much!

Kind Regards, Christine Canakes Erickson

Dear Soile,

Heartfelt thanks for everything you did to make our 40th Anniversary party at the Vadnais Heights Commons a truly remarkable experience.When we came to your office for a tasting session, we had no idea what was in store for us. Everything that you prepared was amazing and beautifully presented. The quality of our tasting experience was repeated for our guests at the party. As I visited our friends at their tables, I consistently saw plates piled high with your delicious food. Many people told me that they went back for seconds and even thirds. They could not stop talking about the variety and quality of the bounty on the Chef’s Table. As if all that wasn’t enough, you amazed them wioth your Scandinavian Torte. More than one guest told me that that was the best cake they had ever had.

Maiju and your crew worked with precision and attention to detail. The room was spectacular. We achieved our goal of “simple elegance” because of the hard work of your people and because of your vision. I wouldn’t have believed that anyone could transform a few flowers, bandanas and red peppers into such an exquisite table. The team you assembled helped make our day a success.

Thank you for being willing to have the food served over a period of two hours. Many quests came late and were pleasantly surprised they were still able to enjoy your fare and were not rushed. There was such variety and uniqueness to the dishes you prepared. Your rounded out our simple requests with recipes that people couldn’t stop talking about. The fruit arrangements were straight out of a magazine. Your were unbelievably generous with your portions. We relived the party for days afterward with the leftovers. We were actually able to bless several neighbors with our abundance the day after the party.

Finally, thank you for taking such pride in your work and business. The Twin Cities are very fortunate to have Deco Catering at their disposal. Your attention to detail and your culinary expertise were a gift to us. We will forever be grateful for all the ways that you made our celebration one to be forever remembered.

Blessings as you bless others,
Debbie and Bruce Anderson

Dear Heikki,

Just a note to thank you for helping us have a wonderful 40th Anniversary Party on Sunday, August 25th, at the Vadnais Heights Commons. Every step of the way, you were so supportive and professional. Emails were immediately answered and you always made us feel that our questions and correspondence were welcome. We knew from the moment that you met us in your parking lot that we had happened upon something truly special. You had such joy and took such pride in the food that you had to offer. Everything we tasted was superb and beautifully presented. The roasted Root Vegetables sealed the deal. Your commitment to excellence and unique food was very apparent. The food at our party was just as tasty and beautifully presented as at the tasting.

The staff you sent was perfect. They were hard working with attention to detail and interacted with our quests in a professionally friendly manner. We had two groups of guests that we couldn’t get out the door at the end, and the girl who was responsible for the final table cloth waited patiently our of view. Very kind. You wouild have been so proud of Maiju. She made the flowers stunning and she took great pains to help her crew set an amazing Chef’s Table. Everyone raved about how beautifully decorated it was. Every suggestion that we made was cheerffully acgted upon by Maiju. The crew delivered on our goal of “simple elegance”. More than a week has past and I still beam when I think of that day and look at the photos.

Thank you again for being so passionate at what you do. It is obvious to all. Grace and Peace,
Debbie and Bruce Anderson

34

Dear Maiju,

Dear Heikki,

Thank you for helping me plan last Friday’s dinner and for Deco Catering execution of our plan. the dinner was delicious tasting, beautifully presented and served, cleared and organized in a timely and efficient way.

Although, I did not meet the cook, her skillwas evident. Each offering was served at the correct temperature and texture. The servers Tanya and Margaret led by Carol were helpful, pleasant, and efficient.

Our guests all commented on the quality of the food. I am extremely pleased. Working with you has been easy and your communication clear and prompt.

Thank you for helping me provide a wonderful dinner for our granddaughter’s Bat Mitzvah weekend. ‘

Appreicatively,

Trudy Weisberg

Wow, wow, wow!

Dear everyone at the Deco,

I wanted to send a heartfelt thank you. On Sunday, you far exceeded expectations at our wedding at Camrose Hill. Every detail was beyond excellent!!! Everyone was raving about how great it was. I believe my grandma even fashioned her own doggy bag to take home her meal!

My only lament is that I did not have time to eat everything! Sadly, I was so marveled by the peppers stuffed with mint or basil (I spent time making sure guests equally were impressed with the creativity and beauty of the plating) I have talked with my parents and Paul and all of us did not get a chance to enjoy the cake (this is our fault and not yours), while I know you are a catering organization, would it be possible to purchase a cake for a party to share?

hei hei,
Sarah

Heikki and Deco Staff,

Thank you for catering our Wedding at the Semple Mansion this past December. You had a great crew to work with and you were very flexible to work with especially for a couple who lived our of town. The food was AMAZING, and it looked Spectacular as well.

To All the Staff at Deco Catering

This little note is one BIG THANK YOU for the AMAZING presentation that I walked into at my Farmers Market wedding (June 28th). I was in awe of how beautiful the Buffet looked & how the tables with all my vases & candles & your provided glasses & linens looked.

It was magical & almost brought tears to my eyes. Oh wait, that was just the rain that continued off & on all night. Your staff took the weather in stride and shielded the food, cupcakes etc. until it blew over & became calm again. So many complements from my guests on how this was the best array of flavors, textures, & colors. We were thoroughly impressed & cannot stop talking about how this experience with your company truly EXCEEDED our expectations!

Thank you again! Rachelle & Kevin Stimple

Thank you so much for all you did! People are still coming up to me & telling me how wonderful the food was at the Bar Mitzvah. (The Friday night brisket seems to be a favorite 🙂

As before, it has been a pleasure working with the two of you & the whole Deco staff.

Again, many thanks!

Warmly, Deb Freeman

Thank you so much for the wonderful buffet at my daughter’s wedding on December 29th at the American Swedish Institute.

Although I had seen pictures of your work, to see it in person was astounding.

There was attention to every detail of the presentation and everything tasted fantastic.

It has been a pleasure working with you. My best to you in 2013.

Dear Soile, Heikki & The Deco Catering Team,

We want to thank you all so very much for the phenomenal catering service you provided for our wedding. (September 15 @ Camrose Hill).

We have heard such raves from our guests, and we could not have been more impressed with the quality, diversity and beauty of the food. Your service was also exceptional and we felt very well taken care of — as did our family and friends.

In short, we are so happy to have worked with you all & hope we’ll have occasion to do so again in the future!

Hi Heikki.

I wanted to let you know how amazing our event was and how delicious and beautiful everything turned out. I can’t tell you how many people asked who catered the lunch and the food was out of this world.

Thank you so much for making everything so special and making the planning part so easy. Your patience was appreciated this first time around.

We have 2 more Bar Mitzvah’s in the future and look forward to working with you again:)

Best,
Stephanie Shapiro

Dear Soile, Heikki and Miu,

Grateful thanks for all that you did to truly ensure the VOICES of Inspiration: Temple Israel’s 12th Annual Benefit would be an event that people would be talking about! The presentation and the food are fabulous! Our staff has been enjoying the leftovers all week long!

From start to finish, you helped make the planning process as easy as it could be! Once we met Miu and saw she was in charge, we knew we did not have to worry about one thing!

Thank you for easily getting more than 300 people through a buffet line in a timely fashion, for turning over the rooms, for bringing the plates and making the tables look fabulous, and for a million other small things you did to take care of every little detail!

Looking forward to working with you on future events!

Warmest thanks and appreciation – Temple Israel Benefit Committee

Soile and Heikki:

Just want to say thanks for making my daughter’s wedding special. All the food was fabulous! The Russian guests said the cheese pierogis were excellent. Guests are still commenting on how good the food was. Also, the wedding cake was the best anyone ever had. Your wait staff was wonderful. They were freindly, attentive and helpful. Please let them know that.

I will be more than happy to recommend your catering service to anyone who needs this service. Thanks again. Everything was great.

Soile, Heikki & Deco Catering Staff,

Thank you so much for the magnificant catering job for the event in my home on September 9th.

I enjoyed working with Heikki in planning the menu. Soile and the rest of your staff on the day of the event were organized, inviting and so attentive. Mayau helped make this event a true success! The food was attractive and sumptuous. We received so many compliments from our guests on the appetizers, dinner and the apple dessert with ice cream was the perfect final touch.

I enjoy the prospect of planning another Deco catered event in the future.

Warmest regards,

Karen H. Ashe
