Yvonne worked with me on short notice to put together a 40th birthday party for a friend. She helped me create a signature cocktail list, create a shopping list, and generally pull everything together. Our bartender was prompt, organized, easy to work with, friendly and set just the right tone. I would definitely use them again.

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.

If I could give Tiffany 10 stars, I would! She is reliable, efficient and does a great job keeping everyone (wedding party, bride and groom, family) on track. She was one of the best decisions I made while planning the wedding! Thank you Tiffany!!

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 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!!!

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!

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!!

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!

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 contacted Bounce-n-Jump at the last minute about a bouncy house for my son's birthday party. They got back to me quickly, with a reasonable quote, and fulfilled their promise. The delivery guys arrived a few minutes after the stated window, but said they got lost (understandable) They arrived to pick it up around 8:15pm--just after it got dark, which is evidently when they begin pickups. The bouncer itself was in good condition and the kids had a blast with it. The electric blower was very quiet compared to the gas-generator run units you hear in parks. The delivery guys were very nice and clearly hard working.

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!

Everything from the decorations to the clean up was taken care of. Since, I have use cast your cares for several events. I must say I have truly cast all my cares on them and they have cared for me! Thank you, Sincerely Satisfied

Elizabeth helped plan my daughter's 1-year birthday party. She organized all the vendors (food, cake, face painting, bartender) and handled the decorations. She was responsive and did a great job day-of setting up the decorations and making sure everything went smoothly. I was very happy with the entire event and would absolutely use her again in future.
