We had a party for 40 guests and Andrew did an amazing job getting all the supplies, setting up and serving drinks to our crazy crew! He also stayed late to clean up so we didn't have to. He did an awesome job and didn't need any direction, which made it stress free for me and that is always appreciated. We would definitely hire him for our next event!

Evan and his crew did an outstanding job for our work BBQ. The party was for 90 people and it wasn't an issue for his crew. They setup and had the food ready on time and delivery as contracted. The food was delicious and ample. They were flexible on the menu and accommodated the menu for the vegetarians. It was a great day and I'm happy that I went with Taqueria Cazadores for my event. I would highly recommend Evan and his team. Cheers! Frank

I originally had hired Michael as the bartender for my upcoming birthday party. I called him to discuss logistics, and was very pleasantly surprised to find out that his skills, expertise, and creative energy stretched beyond bartending and into all areas of party planning. He met me at the space chosen for my party, and together we created a thematic vision and layout of the space. He was able to balance grand ideas with my moderate budget and found creative alternatives that kept me within budget. The days preceding the party, he prepped the space, staged, and set-up decorations, so that I could enjoy myself instead of worrying about party planning. He also kindly jumped in to help me pick up last minute supplies without hesitation. The night of the party he helped orchestrate the flow, all the while making sure I always had a delicious cocktail in hand. The following day after the party, he cleaned up and helped remove the furniture, decorations, et al. All in all, it was a joy to work with him. He kept me excited and relaxed, and executed a fabulous party.

Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!

Before I give my glowing review of Tiffany, I have to preface the review with a few words so you know that I was in your shoes. Wedding planning sucks and having to stick to a limited budget doesn't it make it easier. As a bride, sometimes you have to cut corners in order to afford simple things (or let's be honest more desired things) for your wedding. Hiring a full service wedding planner, was one of those things that I really wanted, but I knew it would take a huge chunk out of my wedding budget. My wedding was in San Francisco, so it’s not the cheapest city to have your wedding. But after receiving price quotes from full service wedding planners, their prices depressed me (adding unnecessary stress to my wedding budget woes) and when I looked at their packages, I just didn't feel like it was right for me or my budget. I had to take a step back, breathe, and take ownership of wedding planning and face reality. I knew what I’d need to do, to stay on budget. I had big decisions to make as a bride, but I knew I could save a ton, if I planned my own wedding. So I thought “hey I plan many events for my friends, family, and clients all the time, we’ve got about 85-100 guests to invite, why not plan my own wedding, and hire a day of coordinator to save money?" I did just that and when I was in the process of looking for a day of coordinator, my next thought was, "shoot if I hire a day of coordinator, will I overlook something and regret not hiring a full service wedding planner?". With caution, I started to ask for quotes for day of coordinators and realized right away what I needed to do. I put a request up on Thumbtack and the email quotes came rolling in. I was astonished. But I was in a conundrum - every price was competitive, so how does one choose a vendor over the other. All of them had amazing reviews (which put my initial concerns more at ease). I spent a few days emailing back different vendors, asking them questions, reading their reviews, even looking them up on Linkedin! I did some my research and eventually decided on Tiffany Won. Choosing her as the day of coordinator was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process. 3 pieces of advice if you DIY: First off ladies, have more confidence in your planning abilities and use the resources the internet provides you (there are a ton of wedding checklists and schedules online to help you plan your own wedding, and for inspiration for décor or what not, pinterest was key for me). It might be intimating at first, and the time involved in planning your wedding might feel like an absolute time suck, but trust in yourself and plan your day. No one has a better vision of what you want for your wedding, more than you. Secondly, trust in a day of coordinator like Tiffany to execute on your vision. She's top notch and will be a valuable asset in your planning process. I hired her as my day of coordinator. I was a little anxious, but after I spoke with her on the phone and especially after I met her before my wedding for the 2 hour “pre-wedding meeting”, I could tell that she had plenty of experience in event planning and coordination. Not only does she have experience in wedding planning, but she has extensive experience planning corporate events and conferences, which as you know, could range from hundreds to thousands of attendees. My thought was, if this girl can plan corporate events that are large scale, she will definitely be able to coordinate my smaller scale event. She also asked the right questions before the wedding, which put my concerns at ease, since she is very sharp and it became clear to me, that event planning plays a very familiar story in her head, a story she knows word for word. Thirdly, stick to your budget. If you need to roll up them sleeves and plan your wedding, just do it. But call in some cavalry to take over on the day of your wedding day because you’ll need it. Make sure you go with a pro like Tiffany. I’m pretty detailed oriented. So is she. I thought I had every detail planned, all she has to do is follow the schedule. You know what, she was able to catch holes in my schedule and my planning. She worked with me to double check my wedding schedule and everything – the whole shebang…from pre-wedding day stuff like what time the florist will set up, when will the lighting company get to the venue, advice or a second opinion on wedding décor, suggestions for additional vendors….even ceremony logistics such as where people would stand, the flow of the event, gaps in the vendors schedules…and the wedding reception details like when the band would take their breaks so she can play an ipod or something so background music would play, helping with the mic transition from the emcee to other guest speakers, overseeing food service so there wasn't a huge gap between the appetizers and dinner, making sure I ate, making sure the groom and I did our table rounds to thank our guests for coming, making sure at the end of the evening someone could collect my wedding gifts, etc etc. Tiffany did a phenomenal job at overseeing every tiny detail the day of the wedding! My wedding went smoothly, the guests had a fantastic time, I now have memories that will last a lifetime, and this was all because I had help taking some wedding responsibilities off my shoulders, I'm so glad I hired Tiffany! Tiffany went over and beyond the call of duty and at a very fair price. Whether you hire her as a day of coordinator or hire her for full service wedding planning (or to plan any type of event), do yourself a favor and put her in your top consideration list. I would hire her again if I could. I will certainly be recommending her to my friends and family. And if you hire her, I’m sure you will eventually do the same. Kudos Tiffany for the excellent work! Written by a very happy bride :)

We hired Manya to do face painting, and do glitter tattoos at our twin daughters 3rd birthday party. Also, at the end of the party she dressed up as Olaf from frozen. My daughters had an amazing time, and their friends did as well. I would absolutely recommend Dazzling Streaks Party Entertainment to anyone that is looking for someone to provide any of the services she offers. Most of the children attending our party were 3-5 years old and Manya was very patient with each of them and just did a really great job. We were very impressed and hope to use her at other parties in the future.

Five stars hardly suffice in rating the work of Rebecca and Anna Marie. My party was all that I had hoped for and more! During the pre-party planning they were attentive and sensitive to our vision for the day. In preparing for the party, their excellent attention to detail, ability to handle each nuance, and creativity in putting all the pieces together was exemplary. During the party they translated our vision by orchestrating each detail and transition flawlessly. All this was done with hardly anyone realizing that they were there. We explored several venues like restaurants and banquet halls before deciding to hold the party in my home. Getting ready involved moving furniture and transforming a house into a party place. We are so pleased for having made that decision because we were able to celebrate in an environment that represents us and that we know best. If I were to pick the qualities that best describe Rebecca and Anna Marie these would be professionalism, sensitivity, creativity and love for their work. Their positiveness and enthusiasm carried the day. Rebecca and Anna Marie know how to take an idea and from that create a celebration. I highly recommend using a party planner for your next celebration and AR Weddings N Events is the company that knows how to make celebrations happen.

Forsyth Designs was the mastermind behind the exceptionally beautiful and customized decor for our wedding. Matt's ability to translate our vision into a reality that far exceeded our expectations while staying on budget was the best "gift" a bride could ask for! He literally transformed a white tent into a stunning lounge-like atmosphere that accommodated our every need and desire. There isn't a large scale event or party that I would consider hosting without collaboration from Forsyth Designs. Working with Matt is seriously delightful on every level!

Exceptional. We hired Zach to cater and teach a sushi making class for 6 couples at my house for my wife's birthday. He was incredibly responsive and thoughtful. We emailed and spoke several times in advance of the event about what my expectations for the evening and the types of fish we wanted and what we wanted to make. He also give me a lot of tips on sake -- so I went out and bought several bottles of sake for the guests to do a sake taste testing He drove down to silicon valley from Sonoma, purchased the fish fresh from his contacts at Fisherman's Wharf, and arrived at our home later than expected but well before the guests, so we had plenty of time. He prepared 3 appetizers for us -- an excellent Japanese beef dish, a poke/ponzu dish and a scallop and moon fish sashimi dish with a coconut sauce. Then he taught the group how to make rolls and we each made several rolls with a wide variety of fish and ingredients that he brought. Zach explained a lot about sushi making, from how he evaluates the fish, how it should be cut, how sushi restaurants operate, what to look for at sushi restaurants, etc. His involvement in the evening beyond just preparing the food really helped make the party a lot of fun.

Wow!! Just Wow!! Chef Judith Green catered our company holiday party last Friday and it was amazing. First, and very impressive, she showed up with an army of chefs and servers. They layed out two tables of bountiful delight! Cheeses, hummus, herbs from her garden. Whole Salmon, Asian sliders, veggies, and incredible desserts!! Our CEO was so impressed. She made me and our company look good. Not only will I hire her again, I plan to recommend her to everyone in need of a caterer. Thank you so much!!

I contacted Bounce-n-Jump at the last minute about a bouncy house for my son's birthday party. They got back to me quickly, with a reasonable quote, and fulfilled their promise. The delivery guys arrived a few minutes after the stated window, but said they got lost (understandable) They arrived to pick it up around 8:15pm--just after it got dark, which is evidently when they begin pickups. The bouncer itself was in good condition and the kids had a blast with it. The electric blower was very quiet compared to the gas-generator run units you hear in parks. The delivery guys were very nice and clearly hard working.

Hedieh was excellent. She was clear about the packages. Had very good suggestions for what we wanted to achieve. Was very punctual. And most importantly she handled a snafu from one of the vendors on the day of the party. She took it upon herself to resolve the issue and got it done during the course of the party. Would recommend her highly.

Christa handled everything I asked her to the day of my wedding. There were many complexities and moving parts because I had a reception and an after party. Christa handled both amazingly well. We met a few times before and spoke on the phone throughout my engagement. I was in great hands with Christa. She had many ideas and helped make my reception beautiful!

I hired Marisa to cook dinner for me and 10 friends at my home in Noe Valley. Marisa was able to design a menu that fit with my needs. The food was very good and Marisa did a nice job plating it, which she suggested. Marisa arrived on time but the food took a bit longer than expected to be prepared and served. I would hire Marisa again for a straightforward dinner party for friends. It was a great way to spend a Friday night.
