Here are a few kudos we’ve received from our clients:

“A Social Affair,

I just wanted to say that it was a pleasure working with you and the entire staff at A Social Affair. Lashaunda and Ken’s wedding was one of the most beautiful I have been involved in. Their guests were blown away by the food, the bar and the beautiful presentation. Thank you for your professionalism and efficiency. We had a great team of professionals working hard; and, as a result, our bride and groom were two very happy newlyweds. I hope to work with you again soon.”



“Diane and Tarell,

A Social Affair took all my worries away when catering my daughter’s wedding! Both the food and presentation were above and beyond what we expected. Even to this day we still receive compliments on the food served! Jim Cobb and his talented staff did an excellent job. Their work ethics were amazing and everyone was so nice! We are looking forward to have A Social Affair cater again!”

“Here is what I’d say if asked about A Social Affair:

A word of caution – once utilized, planning a party will always thereafter require the expertise of A Social Affair.

Jim Cobb and the talented event planners and creative chefs at A Social Affair have the skill and enthusiasm to produce a wonderful party, whether dinner for 8 or brunch for 200! Ideas range from party games to wine selection to unique food recommendations. I’ve known these talented people for 20+ years and those who come to my home for a party expect the food to be wonderful and the wines to be perfectly paired, well aware all will come from Jim & friends! My job is simply to enjoy the event.

Best of luck with all your future endeavors”

“Dear A Social Affair Catering,

Thank you for your help with the reception I hosted in honor of Hurricane Volunteers during my visit to Birmingham on October 21. It was a wonderful event and a great opportunity to show our appreciation of local relief efforts by so many hard working and devoted citizens from the Birmingham community.

I appreciate the Southern hospitality you extended to my British colleague, Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, and to me particularly on such short notice. I was proud to show off my home state of Alabama, and your help with the event contributed to making the trip a great success.”

-Condoleezza Rice,

Secretary of State for the United States of America
