We hired Fresh and Fizzy for my wife's 50th birthday party at our house on June 3, 2017 for about 50 people. I couldn't tell you how people came up to me to compliment Fresh and Fizzy for their professionalism, quality, and great work ethic. They worked hard, kept the drinks flowing and made sure to clean up before leaving. THANKS Drew and team!!
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.
Alisa was amazing! We hired her for my 50th birthday party and the food was great, her service was exceptional! We would highly recommend Passionate Plates!!!!
I called Anna Marie @ AR Wedding and Events to put together a backyard, 50th birthday party for my girlfriend and she and her crew did an outstanding job!! I didn't have to worry about a thing! Anna Marie coordinated the cooking, table rentals, decorations, bartender, shopping... all I had to do was provide the booze.... no problem!!! My friends and family had a great time, but most of all... so did my girlfriend!!! Thank you AR Wedding & Events!!!
Dazzling Streaks is a great company. The event space was magical for my mothers 50th Birthday. I look forward to working with this company for future events.
Danny was phenomenal! We hired him to do face painting for our daughter and he was fantastic. Not only did he do an amazing job on the face painting but he was so friendly and talkative. He walked us through what he was doing and use hypoallergenic makeup. I can't say enough good things about him. Hire him for you next event. You won't be sorry!
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.
Michelle cooked a lovely dinner for my husband's birthday last week. She showed up with hand-printed menus, flowers and amazing serving boats (we did mole tacos three ways--mole, mole, mole!). She was cheerful, professional and a great cook! Highly recommend.
My friend recently celebrated her 50th birthday. Her wish? To have a catered dinner at home where she could relax and enjoy a wonderful evening of food, vino and friends. My decision to go with Rainbow Chefs was the BEST CHOICE! They worked with me to create the menu which the chef cooked to PERFECTION! It was a joy to see the guests "ooohh" and "aahhh" as each dish was brought out...Having Rainbow Chefs prepare, serve and clean up allowed the hostesses (me and my friend) to enjoy the event too! It was truly a magical night...I highly recommend them!
I've had the opportunity to work with Miss Harper as her photographer on many occasions. Whether we are providing services for a small private house party with 20 guests, with a culturally enriched theme, to providing services for a 100th year life celebration, we have always gone above and beyond to provide the best service possible for our clients. Through observing her process of developing a experience, planning all the details with the client for a wedding, to the detail with a client for a birthday party with more then 100 guests. Her attention to detail and follow though with the requests of clients has provided her opportunity to provide services to several clients in the corporate arena in the finance and technology sectors. Most don't know what goes into the planning and preparation to deliver and execute a catered experience. Our clients trust us to provide what they have requested, based on what's ordered. When it comes to designing and delivering productions which are memorable and leave pleasant memories, the details matter. Our clients expect us to think through everything and have a backup plan for those unexpected situations which may crop up. To all those who are considering contracting with her. I encourage you to look at some of the photos which have been captured and represent the quality of work she executes. Contact her and let her know your desires in a clear communicative way and you'll be glad you made the choice to keep it Phiesty, with Chef Cheri Harper.
I can't possibly say enough good things about working with Zach. He made my wife's 40th birthday party an exceptional event - executed flawlessly with *incredibly* delicious food. Each course was more delicious than the last - a perfect, creamy chilled asparagus soup, followed by an outstanding panzanella complete with homemade bread croutons, then on to an incredible halibut dish with flawless asian flavors and finally on to a perfect chocolate tartlet with coffee stout mousse and a bourbon cream. Oh man, if we could have that meal again, we'd go back to it over and over again. It was as good if not better than any meal we've had at our favorite restaurant. Zach made the evening easy and smooth, ensuring all the details were covered and making sure our party of 8 had a memorable evening. He was calm and a real delight - even making sure our two girls (ages 3 and 5) and the family dog were taken care of (for example, letting our older daughter help cook and taste as he went). It felt like having a cool and incredibly talented friend in the house, relaxed and delightful. Can't recommend working with him enough - and we certainly will have him back for another event in the future.
We enjoyed working with Natasia. We employed her to do face painting for our kids’ birthday party. She is very talented and the kids loved it. We will consider utilizing her again.
Taste-full events met and exceeded my expectations for my recent family birthday event. The food was very tasty and presentation was lovely. Kudos to the chef and staff!!
The saying goes "If you want something done correct, do it yourself!" I was once a firm believer until I requested the services of Jessica/jMonae events. The task was to create an atmosphere where friends and family could help me celebrate my 25th birthday. Jessica helped me to plan a 'Non-celebrity Roast', and it was hilarious. She found a host, provided seating arrangements and had food some good food catered. I was even gifted a surprise appearance from a local comedian. I left everything in her hands and she handed me back a once and a lifetime experience! The logistics were clear, the communication was constant and the budget was adhered to. I couldn't have asked for a better event planner!
Marisa has prepared many meals for me which have all been absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Two years ago, she threw a birthday party for me and since I am from the South, she prepared southern foods with a more modern twist in bite-size portions, to name a few cornbread, mac n' cheese, fried green tomatoes, pulled pork sliders and jambalaya. What an amazing chef!
I contacted Rubal for emergency help planning a birthday party for my 3-year-old nephew and she exceeded expectations and then some. She really listened to what we wanted - she brings an amazing balance of creativity and flawless execution to the event planning process. There wasn't a detail that was overlooked - and she clearly cared about personalizing the party for us and for my nephew. She was also an absolute pleasure to work with - a great eye for design, and a fantastic sense of humor and patience. Highly recommend.
Elise planned and directed my first baby shower. I have known her for a long time and have seen her put on incredible parties, including my 30th birthday. Huge hit! Of course I asked her to do my baby shower too. I only had one or two discussions with her about ideas and she was able to create a baby shower straight out of Pinterest for me. No joke. It was a heavenly day that I will always remember with the people I most loved. The detail Elise puts into your special day is unlike anything you have experienced before. -NH
Krista did a GREAT job helping us with our event. She thought through all the details and made sure everything was perfect. We did the event at my home and she arranged everything from the valet to caterer to flowers to party table and linen rentals. We would definitely love to work with her again and I had people ask me for her contact information while they were at our party. Thanks for the amazing event Krista!!!
Marisa and her team did an OUTSTANDING job catering an entire weekend worth of meals for my friend's 30th birthday party. The food was creative and, more importantly, DELICIOUS! She worked extremely hard and you can definitely see the passion in her final product. I will definitely be hiring her again for future events that require catering.
Yvette did an amazing job with my daughter's birthday party. Yvette blended my daughter's colors, leopard and purple so well. Everyone was very impressed with her design. To this day our friends and family still talk about Yvettes's work. Thanks Yvette!
Birthday party for my brother-in-law in Healdsburg CA. On time, knowledgeable, friendly, delicious oysters. You can't go wrong hiring The Oyster Girls for your private or corporate event. I can't say enough positive things about the way they deliver a great experience. Thank you, Aluxa!
