This is the first stress free birthday party I've hosted in 10 years. Jen was amazing to work with from booking through the party. Lots of smiles and fun for a sing along, magic show, balloon animals and face painting. My birthday girl was star struck and is already ready to turn four so she can have another princess party. We could say enough about how wonderful Jen and our event was.
We hired Ani for our baby's 1st birthday. Ani was very pleasant and was great with the kids. The kids LOVED her. My daughter is very much into the movie Frozen and asked Ani if she could paint some of the characters from the movie. She had never painted them before but gave it a shot and they came out really good! My older daughter who is 5, begged me to hire her again for her birthday party. Looks like we'll be seeing you again Ani. Thanks for your services :)
Based on his outstanding reviews, I hired Michael to bartend for a dinner party I was hosting for my boyfriend's 27th birthday. Prior to the event Michael and I maintained an ongoing communication and he was extremely helpful with recommending appropriate vendors, detailing specific supplies needed and a worksheet to help determine how much alcohol, mixers and garnishes to buy, as I was not as familiar with the specifics. I was so grateful to have Michael there the night of our party, as he was very engaging with our guests, everyone loved him and he helped throughout the night - not just serving drinks, but he also cleared plates, helped serve, stayed to clean up after and even took photos for us. He was much more than just a bartender and I highly recommend him.
I hired Tiffany as a "day of" wedding coordinator. From the start Tiffany kept in touch with me, from clarifying all that needed to be done to what time I needed her and where. She was very organized, on time and did a great job with decorating the venue and setting up. She contacted my vendors within the week of my wedding, allowing me to not have to worry about things. On top of it all, she was extremely kind, which I really appreciated during a stressful time. I would recommend her to anyone needing a hand with wedding planning.
Angela was fantastic ! She arrived on time and setup neatly. Her facrpainting quality was fabulous and she also made the fussy birthday girl feel special by making her a special balloon ! Will definitely recommend her and hire her again!
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.
David entertained my son's preschool class for his 5th birthday. The kids laughed the whole time. He is great at controlling the kids so they have fun but are not too roudy or aggressive. His show is long enough to keep their attention and fun, without burning them out. I could not be happier. On the administrative side of things, he is professional, courteous and great to work with. I highly recommend him!
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!
I hired Isaac last month for my daughter's cotillion/debutante birthday party and high school graduation party. Isaac was communicating with me prior to the event about song list and other pertinent information about the party. He was very proactive and well prepared. He was very professional and arrived on time. My daughter's party was unique because we had some performances and ceremonies, and Isaac had to compile songs to be played during these ceremonies. We were very impressed with his organization and willingness to go above and beyond in order to make this party memorable. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Isaac!!!
Jennifer cleaned my house within an inch of its life. She cleaned it more thoroughly than it has ever been cleaned in the 13 years I’ve lived here. I told her that I was having a party for my daughter’s 16th birthday and she made this place shine. She rearranged furniture, she decorated, she put up lights outside, and she made the most amazingly beautiful cake. I can’t wait to work with her again.
We had a terrific experience Pacific Face Painters and Lisa as we planned my daughter's birthday - she outlined the work and communicated clearly. I cannot say enough good things about the artist Connie. We had her for 2 hours and she was busy the entire party transforming kiddos in sharks, unicorns, hulk, pigs, fairies whatever her work and attitude was fantastic! Would use Pacific Face Painters again!
We had Fantastic Fred perform at my daughter's 1st birthday party (lunch event). We hired him or 1 hour. He did balloons for the kids and majic for the adults. His wow-ed the adult crowd (including myself) with his majic and the kids (age 2-7) enjoyed the balloons. The only reason why I am giving 4 stars (instead of 5) is because we had 8 tables and ~ 3 tables did not get to see him perform (I asked a couple of my friends if they liked the majic and they said the magician did not come to their table). I left it up to Fred to decide whether he wanted to do table side majic or perform center stage (since Dan, owner, said they are professionals and would know what was best for the group/event). To be fair, I think one of my tables "hogged" up Fred's time from the other tables. We hired Fred for one hour and he did stay a little over to do magic for one of the tables and make an extra balloon for one of my guests. Maybe I should've hired him for longer? For the tables that got to experience Fred tableside, they were very, very, very impressed with Fred. I would definitely hire Fred again for my event. Since my daughter's first birthday was mostly adults (50 adults) my goal was to make sure they enjoyed their time as well (I didn't want them to get bored at a "kiddy" birthday party). The only thing I would change was that I wish Fred performed "center stage" in front of everyone. He mentioned to the group in the beginning that he does not like to perform while ppl are eating, but in hindsight I wish he performed in front of everyone (while they were eating lunch) for 15 mins, so everyone would've got to enjoy him. I would definitely hire
We hired the Viking Lady character for a singing birthday telegram for one of our employees. She was a huge hit at the office and so much fun. The birthday song was even personalized for the recipient which was a nice touch. :)
Theresa was a big hit on my sons first birthday party. she was nice and friendly and really engage with our guest.
We hired Limelight to decorate our wedding. They did a great job listening to what we wanted and suggesting ideas based on that. They created two backdrops for us, both of which were beautiful. They were easy to work with and friendly and set-up and broke down everything without any hassle.
Marianne was our florist for our wedding and EVERYTHING was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We got so many compliments with all the services she provided for us. She brought my visions to life!! She's very sweet, professional and responds to any questions or concerns promptly. My mother and I are extremely detail oriented and she did everything she could to make sure my wedding was perfect and beautiful. Marianne listened to all my thoughts and ideas and was able to give feedback and follow with other amazing ideas. I had many headaches and stressful moments planning my wedding, but I never had to stress about my flowers because I trusted her with everything and knew she was going to make things wonderful. I can't thank her enough for all the hard work she did. I recommend Marianne for not only weddings but any occasion that you need a florist!
Velina is extremely talented in my experiences with her events. I've worked with her and been to other events she planned and been a part of. She's extremely professional, kind, and organized. He floral arrangements are stunning, her table arrangements are classy and elegant and she just has an amazing eye for detail. She's helped me with multiple parties I've planned including birthday and baby showers. I got so many compliments on how amazing both parties were and how all the details were perfect. To top it all off Her pricing is extremely reasonable. Whether it's a wedding, and event or a party Velina is all around amazing!!
I hired Clarissa to plan and execute my 50th birthday party. As an interior designer, my standards were high and Clarissa met and exceeded every one of them. She enjoyed the challenge and put on a great party for myself and 80 of my friends. I would definitely work with her again!
Olivia oasis was a life saver for my wedding...not only are the ladies extremely gifted but they did not allow me to stress out which is usually unheard of for a bride to be. The assisted me with appointments , arrangements etc. The decorations were beautiful and the program ran smoothly. If i were you, I would look no more because you have found a winner!
Barbara kept my party idea alive when I kept waffling on whether I wanted to do it. On the day of she took care of everything, including getting to the event ridiculously early to secure a great spot, and created a beautiful space on the beach to celebrate my birthday. I was so glad I didn't give up on the idea in the end. It turned out to be exactly what I wanted! Everyone had a good time and the cost was very reasonable give all the support she provided. Highly recommend!
Christina and her team at CRC Custom Events were amazing! We would 100% recommend her. We hired her for day-of coordination and venue decor. She did so much for us leading up to the wedding and making sure we were thinking through everything. She is easy to work with and we were able to trust her to use her own judgement with some of the decor arrangements. Seriously, our wedding looked so beautiful; above and beyond our expectations!
