"We had the Queen Victoria High Tea and the NZ Artisan Grazing Table for our wedding. All the food was delicious and well presented. We especially enjoyed the coronation chicken sandwiches, the scones and the chocolate eclairs. The gluten-free selection was also a hit with our guests.
All the tableware looked stunning and many of our guests even mentioned wanting sets of their own. 
We were so happy and impressed with the service provided. Every person we worked with was friendly and very organised. We especially liked that we were able to make adjustments where necessary to suit our specific needs.
We would highly recommend Tall Poppies to anyone looking for an exceptional and well organised Catering Company. They exceeded our expectations and helped make our dream wedding come true. Thank you Tall Poppies for making our High Tea Wedding one to remember!."

“Jillian was amazing when we contacted her regarding an event we were holding at work for 120 people, with only a few days notice. She not only listened to our requirements and amended her menu to suit our needs, but her communication and suggestions were greatly appreciated. The catering provided by Tall Poppies was beautifully presented. Our guests enjoyed the fantastic range of food on offer. Jillian and her team were a pleasure to deal with and we would not hesitate to use them again and would certainly recommend to anyone looking for event catering.”

"Hi Jillian, thank you again for the wonderful High Tea you curated for my mother-in-law's 80th birthday celebration last Sunday. As you know, we had resigned ourselves to having to delay bringing people together due to the government's lock-down restrictions; so we were incredibly grateful that you were able to step in at such short notice when the restrictions lifted early. My mother-in-law was over the moon and our guests absolutely loved the occasion. It was a tremendous success thanks to you and your team; and can't recommend you highly enough. "

"Great communication & booking process. Food was beautifully presented and delicious, arrived exactly on time and warm items were wrapped and kept hot. We had lots of comments about the yummy food on the charcuterie board, which looked amazing. Took the stress out of our party. Would highly recommend Tall Poppies to others.."

"Great service from Jillian at Tall Poppies. She was friendly, helpful and very quick to reply to emails. She carefully checked and confirmed all details. Delivery was on schedule and all set up was done on time. A Christmas luncheon for fifty people was provided. Everyone commented that the food was delicious and the quantities were spot on - enough for everyone, enough left over for some doggie bags, but very little waste. Pack down was also on time and the area was left clean. Very highly recommended.."

Tall Poppies catered for


our company and of


year dinner for 25 guests


providing a Grazing


Table and the Christmas


Banquet menu. The set


up was professional and


efficient and the food


was amazing. Several


guests made special


mention of how good


everything looked and


how tasty it all was. The


function was held in a


private home and it was


great to have crockery,


cutlery, glasses,


serviettes, tables and


tablecloths provided.


Communication with


Jillian from Tall Poppies


was timely and easy.


Would happily use Tall


Poppies again.
