About Wildflower


I was born & raised in the Mississippi Delta.

It was there that my Grandmother, Mama Knapp, and my mother, Montez, taught me to love cooking! In fact, the name Wildflower Catering also came about because Mama Knapp & Momma absolutely loved wildflowers!

I spread my wings in the early 1980's, flying to San Diego where I was formally trained as a gourmet cook. It wasn't until I came back home to the South that I decided to open a catering business. In 1992 my catering business became a reality and it wasn't long before it was in full bloom!

Opening Wildflower catering was the greatest decision of my life! I feel so blessed to be doing something that I am meant to do, and truly love!

We will custom create your menu together and I will

personally oversee the entire project! -

"I cant say enough good things about Wildflower Catering! Mary Kaye was very easy to work with, and did a wonderful job of putting my ideas to motion. The healthcare providers who attended our conference were blown away by the display of healthy food, that happened to taste as good as it looked! Wildflower was creative with the three meals per day they fed our attendees. the service and timing of each course could not have been better. I could not have chosen a better catering company. I highly recommend Wildflower Catering for all of your event planning and catering needs!"

"Wildflower catered our wedding and helped make our day all the more special. Mary Kaye worked closely with us to ensure that we were getting just what we wanted. She offered creative menu options and really helped coordinate the food with the style of our wedding. The food was amazing, the staff was friendly and attentive, the set-up was beautiful and every detail was just perfect. Thank you, Mary Kaye!"

Cynthia DiGeorge

"I want to thank Wildflower Catering for the outstanding serviceyou gave us for my husband's, Capt. F.P. DiGeorge's, Change of Command reception on October 30th, at the Seabee Museum. The presentation was lovely, and the food was a real delight for everyone's taste buds. The hit of the party was the smoked catfish pate' cheesecake! Please feel free to use us as a reference for any future contracts. We could not have been more pleased with your service. Looking forward to working with you real soon on a housewarming party!"
