Melissa did an incredible job transforming a drab basement social hall into a magical and elegant setting for our daughter's bat mitzvah! She had to deal with last minute change of venue and handled it beautifully.Feb 22, 2016
Mellisa is easy to work with and has a great eye! As a fellow event industry provider, we rely on the planners that hire us for accurate communications and excellent logistical planning, and she does a GREAT job!Feb 15, 2016
I highly recommend Melissa Rubin for her party planning services. She put together a fabulous graduation party for my son for which we received many compliments. Not being a party planning person myself, I appreciated Melissas fresh ideas, attention to detail and take charge attitude. She was very willing to do as much or as little as I needed help with. She has many contacts in the business and her coordination was instrumental to a well-run event. I would not hesitate to work with her again.Feb 15, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Really it is based on the scope of work. I offer such a wide range of services it really depends on the needs of the client. It can either be an hourly rate for day of work or project based.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process is usually a consultation where the customer can let me know what they are looking for. I will prepare a quote for them based on their requests then we can go from there, add & subtract services depending on the needs. They will pay a deposit & I will plan an amazing event!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I excelled in all art classes I took in high school and college. Then fast forward to adulthood,I have worked with many organizations planning and decorating for parties, events, galas & auctions
