I’ve used them for two parties now and couldn’t be happier. The bar tending staff has always been prompt and very professional and keep me in the loop during our events. They help us with creative theme cocktails specific to our events which go over really well Myself, my clients and their guests have been very happy with our bar staffing thru Fresh and Fizzy Great job !!!!
I really liked how prepared and organized they were! I only had to say where to set up and after that, I didn't have to do anything! It made setting up a lot easier and I could focus on setting up my decorations and entertaining guests once they arrived. The food was SO good and was an instant hit. Everyone loved it! I would definitely recommend Taqueria Cazadores for parties and I will definitely be working with them in the future. Thank you!!
From the moment Michael responded, we knew this he was "the one"! Let's start with Michael's responsiveness: A+++. We exchanged several messages and then scheduled a call, where he spent the time to get to know us and the event so that he could craft a specialized menu (even with fun names for the drinks) to accompany the theme. Michael is very friendly, easy-going, and you could tell how much he appreciates and loves his profession. Michael arrived to our event ready to rock and even threw on an ugly holiday sweater and fit right in. Before guests arrived, he mixed up his libations for taste testing and let me tell you, the drinks were INCREDIBLE. Party went into full swing and Michael was a HUGE hit. Our guests were like "where did you find him, I want to get him for our event." Michael stayed after the event and I can't tell you how awesome it was to wake up this morning and not have to worry about cleaning up a dirty bar area. He left everything clean and orderly, putting all recycle in bin, and trash into trash. All we need to do is find a spot for the excessive amount of alcohol we purchased. :) Needless to say, between Michael's professionalism, expertise for his craft, thoroughness, and outgoing demeanor, he was very well liked. We've already talked about bringing him back for another event next spring! Overall, HIGHLY recommend Michael and would book him again in a heartbeat.
I don't usually give 5 stars but Tiffany did an outstanding job at my daughters's wedding. We had 165 guests with 18 in the bridal party. It was such a relief to have someone else handling all of the details that the wedding day involves. She answered emails, phone calls always promptly, came to the rehearsal and organized the bridal party and music. She did an amazing timeline that everyone appreciated, including the band. The day of the wedding went so smoothly because of her attention to details...too many to mention here. Please don't hesitate to use her services. She is very good.
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"!
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.
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.
I hired Forsyth Design to plan my in-laws 60th anniversary party. Since then he's done 3 other party's for me. Everyone goes on an on about the decorations. Forsyth Design has never disappointed me. Always very happy with everything.
I had Rainbow chef cater a baby shower. Lana was very helpful in the planning and menu selection and offered some great suggestions. The mother to be was on some food restrictions so Lana worked around that too. They prepared a nice mid day Mediterranean inspired meal with chicken lettuce cups, roasted vegetables with tahini sauce, a wonderful bruschetta, fruit salad and cupcakes in assorted flavors. The feedback on the food was amazing. Jenny showed up with the food and prepared it on my serving trays. She was on time and left my kitchen counter clean. I would highly recommend Rainbow chefs and will use them for future parties.
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!!
Zachary created a wonderful event for me. The food was sophisticated and executed beautifully. He worked with me to craft a menu that would be special for all my guests including those with special diets. Thank you!
Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.
Tracie is the real deal! She and her cohort Kate were invaluable to us at a backyard birthday party with 80 people. She is SO friendly (all our friends loved her) and was there to support us with whatever we needed to happen. She worked hard the entire time and was good about checking in to see what else we needed done. She is a true professional and was so on top of things, we were able to focus on the people at the party instead of the beverages, setup and cleanup. When someone broke a glass candle holder, she was there to clean it up before I could get the broom. She is truly amazing and I will NOT lose her number because she is my go-to for any bartending needs!! So grateful I found her on Thumbtack.
We hired Natasia for face painting this last weekend and she was a hit! The girls loved her designs and she even had matching stick on gems! She was able to move quickly through the line of girls and finished about 25+ in 2 hours. I am very happy with the Party Artists and would book them again!
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.
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.
They are professional cater. Nice and kind to dealing with. I would recommend to anyone who plan to have an event, party, and for any occasion. They provide the reasonable price compare to others.
The party I had the privileged to attend was delightful. Well organized and amazing. It was a surprise party with around a hundred people and the guest of honor was completely surprised. Robyn added personal touches about the guest of honor and what she liked and her interests. This was done very cleverly and with humor. I would certainly use her for my next event.
Absolutely Fantastic in, All Of The Above!!! Barbara and her crew were the Best! Our Family has a new Family Member. Words cannot express how much we loved everything she did for us, from "cradle to grave". We highly, highly recommend her for any occasion and even if we do not need a coordinator, we will invite her to our Parties from now on!
DJ Swell is amazing for all events. We just recently had him at an 8th grade party and he was great! Would definitely use him again!
I do not have enough words to describe how well the party went. Mitalee was just awesome. The decorations were very classy. Mitalee is a thorough professional and always smiling. My baby shower party went very smoothly. I will hire her again in a jiffy.
