We are committed to providing our guests with the wedding or event that consistently exceeds their expectations. We put much love and pride into our food. We enjoy the challenge of creating mouthwatering food for every event. We work together as a team with one common goal in mind, to create an event that is just as individual as each of our clients. We recognize the value and loyalty of our community and all their contributions to our success in North Houston.

Why Choose Shirley Acres?

Shirley Acres defines itself on two guiding principles: Transparency & Tradition. Any time a bride or other client comes in to get a quote on pricing, we sit down with you and customize every detail to suit your needs. We show the breakdown of cost, step by step, and adjust items depending on your budget. Every aspect of our business is steeped in a tradition of hospitality. Shirley Acres prides itself in treating our customers like family and that has been the center focus of our business for the past 46 years. Anyone can open a wedding and catering business, but it takes principle and heartfelt, ethical business practice to stick around for nearly half a century and thrive. We want you to be part of our Shirley Acres family.

Shirley Acres made its humble beginnings as a residence to Ralph and Lou Shirley in 1971. Throughout the years Ralph and Lou raised their four children, each having their weddings on the beautiful 13 acre property. It was the wedding ceremonies of their children that inspired them to open up their home and land to the expansion that we now know as Shirley Acres and is still family owned and operated by Bob and Karla Shirley. The Shirley legacy strives for the utmost excellence to meet and exceed the expectations of any special occasion. It is the goal of every staff member to make sure that wonderful memories are made for our guests.
