A overall great experience with Sage Bleu Catering. Lavonne's food and presentation was a big hit with my guests. She will be catering my next party.
Arash was fantastic to work with. He really knows his stuff. Having been in the industry for over 15 years, it really shows in his ability to notice areas of improvement immediately upon walking into a room. We were on a much lower budget as we're looking to spruce up an already running airbnb. He really understood our budget and did a great job working within it, to identify the biggest bang for our buck improvements. Often as simple as "moving this over there" to open up the room. When we were sitting down after the initial walkthrough he even gave us plenty of free advice for our own home that we were sitting in. You can tell this is his passion. Finally there were quite a few pieces of art that we'd purchased ourselves or were otherwise attached to. He really had the social presence to know when to push (with tact) and when to leave things so as to not call our baby ugly. Due to our budget we ended up doing just a quick in person, and he spent another hour or so with me sending a list of items to me for me to purchase. In spite of this, he's been available after we paid via text or phone to answer "I know you told me to buy this, but is this lamp that I found at Home Goods ok?" Overall, he's great to work with. When we setup our next home, we'll definitely be using him from the very beginning to setup the entire home. Highly recommended!
By far the best idea and decision for a teen birthday party ever!! He brought them aprons, taught them about different kinds of knives and knife care, workspace and hand cleanliness, how to get the best deal at the grocery stores, how to cut up a chicken, how to filet fish, proper seasonings, taste testing, how to multitask in the kitchen to time things to hit the table at the same time and how to prepare dishes for complete meals. He was patient, thorough and totally entertaining to the teens. They were all so proud of their meal and all talked about how cool this party was. After the food was set on the table, he gave a description of each item being served, then he cleaned up the kitchen and exited while we sat down to dinner. He was absolutely amazing. He'd never done a birthday party because he usually teaches couples and does catering events but I'd highly recommend him.
I had the pleasure of meeting Diamant at a wedding that my company was providing hair and makeup for. She happened to be a bridesmaid and the bride's florist!! Diamant had made custom floral hair pieces for the bridal party and I was just blown away by how beautiful they were. She was hard working and professional and delivered the the bouquets had a natural but elegant feel to them! I like Diamant's work so much that I asked her to join a stylized photoshoot for a magazine that I was working on and yet again she delivered GORGEOUS floral arrangements that were just breath-taking. I would highly recommend Blue Ladder for any bride-to-be who is looking for attention to detail and a beautiful aesthetic.
Andrea at Events by Abel is truly fantastic! I first met Andrea through her organizing a running event, and the weekend went by seamlessly. I next attended an event she coordinated to raise money for the American Cancer Society. That event was classy, tasteful and so creative. Andrea is incredibly organized, super detail-oriented and has one of the strongest work ethics I've ever seen. Not to mention, she can make anyone she's around feel comfortable and at ease. If I ever have an event I need help with (wedding, fundraiser, party, etc) - Andrea will be the first person I come to. If you're considering reaching out to her, I think you'll be happy you did!
Being a professional musician who plays for countless weddings, private parties, and corporate events, I've seen my fair share of soirees. Kelly's stand out to me because she puts herself into every event she throws. It is obvious that she has a passion and delight for what she creates. Artist-event planner: She is first and foremost an artist, and thus every party of her's becomes a work of art, sparkling with those clever, delightful, novel details that make one giddy like a child, and bring one into the present moment. These events are visions that are tailor-made from imagination, not canned. This 1920's themed party was a portal to another era where, because of our surroundings, we couldn't help but find ourselves playing in character. The decorations, table settings, poetically dripping candleabras, classic cocktails, cigars, 1920s murder mystery game, the antique frame to capture pictures inside of, and of course Kelly's hostess with the mostess charm and orchestration all evoked my inner Gatsby. We seek to party because we seek to become both transported and present; Kelly's events have a bit of magic to them, where you come home feeling like you went somewhere extraordinary, and that while you were there, you were there the whole time. Thanks Kelly! More to come!
Beautiful work. The children loved having their face painted and Shannon was very patient... painting some children several times as they wiped it off because they wanted to try so many different faces. Shannon's work was a hit at the party!
We had a Christmas party for 15 with Francoise preparing and delivering the menu. It was all wonderful and the perfect solution for this size group. It certainly helped in reducing the stress associated with the holidays.
The bouquet was absolutely beautiful! Plus he included xtra flowers, rose petals, and a toss bouquet 💐 the price was great! I highly recommend and would definitely use his services again. Thank you soooo much
Chef Marckende was amazing! He came up with an incredibly creative menu (all vegan/vegetarian) with dumplings, potstickers, ramen, and an amazing chocolate, strawberry, blueberry layer cake. He was very responsive in the planning process, even coordinating the on-site setup/visit the night before because we were celebrating a birthday with a group of friends at an AirBnb. Couldn't have imagined a better dining experience for celebrating a birthday with the group of 11. He was very professional, came with all of the necessary supplies, took care of service and clean-up. If you're looking to choose a chef for an event, you're missing out if you don't choose Chef Marckende. He'll create a memorable meal and take care of all the details so you don't have to even think about doing anything else other than enjoying a great meal with great company.
I don’t know where to start. Elizabeth, you have been absolutely amazing. My engagement party wouldn’t have happened without you. You are professional, energetic, and I had a blast working with you. From the very beginning of planning to the very end, you were always there with great advice. You understood my busy schedule and made the planning process super easy. I don't know how anyone plans any event without a coordinator. I was not stressed at all because I knew you had everything under control and every detail covered. Thank you for making my engagement party so amazing! I highly recommend Elizabeth as a coordinator. Thank you for everything!
It was a pleasure to work with Vanessa. She catered to our needs and made my 40th Birthday Party spectacular. She has a lot of great connections with a baker (who made amazing dairy-free cupcakes and cake), lighting, and food. What a gem!
Chef Keith was extremely accommodating and the food was outstanding. We had a party of 50 people and everyone raved about the shish-kabobs and red beans and rice. Chef Keith's service made our party a great success. He's definitely going to cater our next event.
We had so much fun at my daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. DJ Charlie played all current dance pop and top 40 music videos on a large screen, which was the best entertainment we've had in the last several years. Charlie is very professional, I'm very happy I booked his services and I would like to have him back later on. Thank you, Charlie.
Ellena was amazing and catered a meal for 17 of us over the course of 3 days. Her ability to make great food at scale with fresh ingredients left our entire party in awe. I would def use her again!
Kylee planned a party for my boyfriends birthday and it turned out very well. Throughout the entire process she was very helpful. She listened to all of my needs and made sure they were met. I plan on using her for my wedding next year. She's wonderful!
Better than I expected!! She really put her best foot forward and provided us with a more than we could ask for. Thank you for making the engagement party so special
We had Portero Concierge handle our 50 wedding anniversary party. Everything went off without a hitch. The setting and the attention to detail was superb. Marni was as excited as we were about our party. We highly recommend Portero for all of your event needs big or small. Even day to day activities that you just don’t have time for.
I have to start off by saying that Patricia is a very nice and sweet lady. That's one of things I really loved about her. She takes her job very serious and gets the job done! I called her last minute and she still made sure my event (Baby Shower) was very nice and BEAUTIFUL!! I got my moneys worth and everyone loved the designs which made me feel even better. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with decorating any event.
I hired San Diego Events to throw a Christmas Party for 30 people. I was astounded at how professional, organized and thoughtful they were. They listened to everything that I wanted to have and made sure that it was all attended to. They stayed within the budget that we created together and made me feel like a part of the team. (even though I did not do a thing lol) It is all about the details with San Diego Events and I feel like it was the details that they attended to that made the party such a success! I can not wait for them to make me look good again.
