Yvonne helped put together a spectacular night for my wife's 40th birthday. Yvonne is extremely professional and friendly. She was spot-on with every detail from the ingredients to the bar presentation to the ambiance to the excellent service she and he colleague, Jonathan, provided. Yvonne and Jonathan showed up early, and worked diligently to keep 130 guests happy for many hours. The compliments from guests are still flowing in. Yvonne is the consummate professional, and I could not recommend her highly enough. Thanks, Yvonne.

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 :)

I met Michael last June while I was at a Spa Resort in St Helena. He was renovating several of the rooms there and I was very impressed with how beautifully he transformed the spaces. We spoke briefly and he gave me his card and explained that he also did staging, interior decorating, flowers and party planning. A few months later when I was planning a 40th birthday party I contacted him to see if he could assist. Initially I was expecting to have him decorate and maybe do some floral arrangements. We met and I explained to him that I wanted to do an open house type event, in my home where guests could drop in throughout the day. I knew I needed to maximize my space and needed a menu and some decorative help. He said he could do it all, and I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. He said he would get back to me and to expect an email. Within two hours I had an appetizer menu, cocktail recommendations, a detailed spreadsheet with a list of supplies needed, the approximate cost and places I could go to find these items and attached images of decorating/ staging ideas that he thought would be appropriate. I quickly realized that he really knew what he was doing, so I hired him to do it all. Over the next three weeks, he was extremely conscientious in keeping me informed of his progress. The night before the event he requested a six hour window of time to work alone, to get everything set up, staged and decorated. Then he brought me in to walk thru and make sure it was all completed to my satisfaction. I have to say I was very very pleased with his work. He said he would be back the next day to put on the finishing touches. But when the guests started to arrive he began showing them in, and taking their coats. He helped make drinks, maintained the bar and buffet table and ended up staying the whole day. He was marvelous and I had the best time enjoying my own party. It was much more than I expected and I could not have done it without him. In January, I was able to hire Michael again for a company event. Annually we bring in our entire National Sales Team to meet and review our sales, new products and host a special awards dinner. This year it was held at the Clift Hotel and I wanted Michael to do all the staging and set up for it. He worked with the hotel staff and did a beautiful job decorating the entrance with lighted balloons simulating clouds (our latest development) he brought in fresh flower arrangements for the banquet room and did little arrangements with candles for the table centerpieces. He even decorated the outside balcony area and the restrooms. Our CEO and Director of Sales were impressed and asked that I bring Michael back for our Holiday event.

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.

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!

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. :)

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

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!!!

Beth was a godsend for our wedding. Her flower arrangements and mirrors were so beautiful and my mother-in-law made the corsage her profile photo for everything. She delivered the arrangements to our house at the requested time and we had nothing to complain about. Thanks so much Beth! Highly recommend for your wedding or any other special occasion.

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.

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!!

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!

Sarah did a great job at my son’s 3rd birthday party! She came in safari gear (we had a jungle theme) and was very entertaining! She started with a safari story and stretching and then worked in ballon twisting, face painting and glitter tattoos! Her fave painting skills are amazing!

I received as a birthday gift one of Elaine's exceptional balloon creations. It was shipped from northern California to southern Arizona and arrived in fantastic condition. The combination of balloon color, size and shape was fabulous! The Bumble Bee was a big hit with my two year old niece. I highly recommend Hooray Balloons creations to anyone who enjoys a fun and playful gift.

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!
