We used Basil and Bloom for catering and floral for our wedding day. Everyone we worked with was kind and professional. The florals made our space more magical than we could have imagined. Words can’t do it justice on how amazing her floral looked. The catering was great. Melissa had many options to choose from. We selected a beef tenderloin, a chicken in cream sauce and a vegetarian lasagna. For sides we had a vegetable medley, garlic mashed potatoes, salad, and rolls. Everything we had was spectacular. The meat was so tender it could have been cut with a butter knife. So many guests told me how they loved the food. Melissa had so much experience in the wedding industry and it shows! I would highly recommend Basil and Bloom for both catering and floral needs!
This company is one of the best catering companies in the Yellowstone County area. The food is always fantastic. They have a great menu with lots of options. My mom and I knew of them from catering events at our respective offices. They absolutely rocked it at my wedding. The set up and service was so great. Everyone complimented the food and said it was the best wedding menu they’d seen. The cake was amazing! And they boxed up the few leftovers so people could take a to go box. I think that was really nice because we knew nothing went to waste.
The food was absolutely amazing. The team is so professional and easy to work with. Melissa is clearly an expert in catering and all that comes with it; it felt great to know that all the catering needs were taken care of on my wedding day.
Melissa and her team truly made our event fabulous! The crew looked sharp and was extremely professional and a joy to work with. The food was delicious and displayed and served beautifully. They will be our first choice for caterers for future events.
We have never met Melissa in person because we do not live in the Billings area but, I was not disappointed. We had comments from other friends who had used her services but to not meet, and the catering and cakes still turned out great. I was a huge relief.
Melissa Walsh and her staff at Top Notch Catering truly are the best of the best! From their high end, professional and personal service, to her insanely delicious food, you will always want more. I promise! I work at Montana Wildflower Weddings and have had many opportunities to have some of the best meals prepared by this talented woman and her team. Did I mention she does floral too. She is flawless, creative and incredibly innovative and oh so kind. Clients leave so happy every single time! Always a pleasure having her at our venue! Always excited to see what’s next! What’s not to Love!
Thanks, Briane Kruckenberg

Recently updating their logo and name from Top Notch Catering shows their marketing skills for continued success. Each recipe is tried and true, tastes superb and beautifully displayed.

Menus can be designed specifically for your event, staff arrives on time and present themselves well. They work as a team in meeting your desire and needs whether it is a buffet or plated meal, cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres. All the little things that you don’t think about, they assist with – lighting candles, assisting with guests who may need an extra hand, clearing tables respectfully during the event. Kitchens are cleaned, garbage moved, and leftovers refrigerated when possible. As a wedding planner I always recommend them.

Melissa, Thank you so much for everything you did to contribute to the joy and celebration of our wedding. You truly knocked it outta the ball park with everything. The flowers were gorgeous and the food was enjoyed by all. I am supposed to figure out how to steal the chicken recipe per the requests of many guests. Thanks again girl, you are the best!

Dear Melissa, I want to thank you again for all of your help with the decorating for my daughters wedding. The comments we heard were amazing. People (even the "Depot" staff) said it was one of the most beautiful weddings-one of the prettiest ones they had ever been to!! You were so great to work with. Thanks again for all you did. MaryJo
Not only was the food amazing but the catering staff's heartwarming smiles and interaction with the wedding guests throughout the evening made the event even better.
