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!!
The 16th Birthday Party was a success. So what went well? Everything. We could not have asked for a better catering service or a more professional/and personable company to work with. Thanks for everything. BTW - the food was excellent. Michele
We hired Tina for our daughter's outdoor birthday party at the park. She painted faces and hair for the duration of the party without stopping -- despite some rainy weather. We were so impressed with her work ethic, friendly disposition and warm interaction with the kids, and her detailed face painting. All of the kids were so thrilled with their paintings, it really was a shame to have to wash them off. She also painted hair which was such a fun option because so many of the kids have dark hair and chalk just doesn't show up. We would definitely hire her again. Our daughter said that she specifically wants Tina at her party next year. We are very pleased.
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 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!!!
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.
This was one of my best last minute choices for my daughter first birthday party. It was the hit of the party (photo booth) the staff was great and very accommodating. I will defiantly be using their services again for my next event.
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.
Danny is one of the most creative persons I have met. His ideas are always fresh, new, as he contemplates the possibilities for any occasion. You can almost see his brain in action as he lights up with ideas and suggestions. Delightful surprises appear in the results of his presentations. If a problem develops on the event day, he confidently and quickly figures out a solution and puts it to work. He has his clients interests at heart and is friendly and reliable in all that he does. It is obvious, he loves his work! Bobbi Hennessey
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.
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.
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!!
We hired In This Moment for our 5th birthday party and simply put it went amazing! The creativity and attention to detail was great. Kristine and her staff were organized, very professional and fun!
I ordered a birthday cake for a team member one day before the birthday. I was worried about if it can be delivered on time. It turns out it did, and the cake is exactly what I asked, less suger, with bird and words. People loved it!
My husband and I hired Courtney to coordinate /set-up our wedding reception. Courtney went above and beyond our expectations. Very detail oriented, response time to emails and text is amazingly quick, which puts you at ease. The venue decor set-up was to perfect. The coordination of vendors- All vendors were where they suppose to be. We had no trouble with the vendors or any decor falling apart. I would 100% hire Courtney if I were to have an anniversary party. I highly recommend Courtney to anyone that is having a party and needs help with coordination/ set-up. My husband and I were very pleased with Courtney's service.
Robyn made my bridal shower a total surprise! I was not expecting it at all. It was based on me, as the theme was what I love best, horses. I could tell she had spent so much time researching to find decorations and party favors that would make my bridal shower so special. She also helped plan my backyard wedding. I'm not a very good party planner myself so had no idea where to start. When I hired her, she stepped right in and took the control I was looking for. I could relax and have a great time at my wedding knowing every little detail was being watched and taken care of by Robin.
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 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!
Christa handled everything I asked her to the day of my wedding. There were many complexities and moving parts because I had a reception and an after party. Christa handled both amazingly well. We met a few times before and spoke on the phone throughout my engagement. I was in great hands with Christa. She had many ideas and helped make my reception beautiful!
Ruby did a phenomenal job with my husband's 40th birthday party. She was able to take our mental vision and bring it to life. I highly recommend her!
