This is the first stress free birthday party I've hosted in 10 years. Jen was amazing to work with from booking through the party. Lots of smiles and fun for a sing along, magic show, balloon animals and face painting. My birthday girl was star struck and is already ready to turn four so she can have another princess party. We could say enough about how wonderful Jen and our event was.
We hired Ani for our baby's 1st birthday. Ani was very pleasant and was great with the kids. The kids LOVED her. My daughter is very much into the movie Frozen and asked Ani if she could paint some of the characters from the movie. She had never painted them before but gave it a shot and they came out really good! My older daughter who is 5, begged me to hire her again for her birthday party. Looks like we'll be seeing you again Ani. Thanks for your services :)
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.
Great designs! Ashley did balloon twisting and face painting at my daughter's birthday and her work was excellent. I would strongly recommend her at your party.
Angela was fantastic ! She arrived on time and setup neatly. Her facrpainting quality was fabulous and she also made the fussy birthday girl feel special by making her a special balloon ! Will definitely recommend her and hire her again!
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.
They were well organized, friendly and fun!!! My daughter loved their photo booth for her 21st birthday!
David entertained my son's preschool class for his 5th birthday. The kids laughed the whole time. He is great at controlling the kids so they have fun but are not too roudy or aggressive. His show is long enough to keep their attention and fun, without burning them out. I could not be happier. On the administrative side of things, he is professional, courteous and great to work with. I highly recommend him!
Matt was the sole event designer for my wedding, and I have to say, he is one of the most talented people I have ever worked with. He was patient with me during the entire planning process, always listened to my ideas, and offered better solutions where necessary. Forsyth Designs took care of my flowers, decor orders / rentals, ceremony and reception setup, and were the first point of contact for all vendors day of. Having planned and produced so many events flawlessly, he did all of this with ease, and no task seemed to be out of his reach. I would highly recommend Forsyth Designs for your wedding decor and flowers. Very easy to work with, and Matt is a really great person that you will want to be a part of your BIG day. He will bring your dream wedding to life!
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.
Our party was at the Garden House in Los Altos. We did the first birthday party package for my sister's 50th birthday party. they came early to set up, were very professional, and very accommodating for the over 100 guests. The balloon artist was fantastic with lots of big elaborate sculptures - a big hit with the kids, especially the bow and arrows! The airbrush artist was very popular with the adults and kids, the variety of designs great. The photo booth was really fun with lots of zany costumes. Over all, a fabulous job by Daniel and his Sideshow Events.
Marianne was our florist for our wedding and EVERYTHING was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We got so many compliments with all the services she provided for us. She brought my visions to life!! She's very sweet, professional and responds to any questions or concerns promptly. My mother and I are extremely detail oriented and she did everything she could to make sure my wedding was perfect and beautiful. Marianne listened to all my thoughts and ideas and was able to give feedback and follow with other amazing ideas. I had many headaches and stressful moments planning my wedding, but I never had to stress about my flowers because I trusted her with everything and knew she was going to make things wonderful. I can't thank her enough for all the hard work she did. I recommend Marianne for not only weddings but any occasion that you need a florist!
We hired the Viking Lady character for a singing birthday telegram for one of our employees. She was a huge hit at the office and so much fun. The birthday song was even personalized for the recipient which was a nice touch. :)
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 Limelight to decorate our wedding. They did a great job listening to what we wanted and suggesting ideas based on that. They created two backdrops for us, both of which were beautiful. They were easy to work with and friendly and set-up and broke down everything without any hassle.
Yanira was awesome and nailed our request for Paw Patrol face designs (as well as spontaneous requests) for my son's recent joint four year old birthday party with his best friend. She had everything in a cart ready to go, and met us at Off the Grid at the Presidio in SF. She was great with all of the kids and totally self sufficient! I recommend her without any reservations.
Beth was a godsend for our wedding. Her flower arrangements and mirrors were so beautiful and my mother-in-law made the corsage her profile photo for everything. She delivered the arrangements to our house at the requested time and we had nothing to complain about. Thanks so much Beth! Highly recommend for your wedding or any other special occasion.
I received as a birthday gift one of Elaine's exceptional balloon creations. It was shipped from northern California to southern Arizona and arrived in fantastic condition. The combination of balloon color, size and shape was fabulous! The Bumble Bee was a big hit with my two year old niece. I highly recommend Hooray Balloons creations to anyone who enjoys a fun and playful gift.
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!
Plan it Duo was very through and provided beautiful quality items.They were friendly and professional, easy to contact with quick responses. My 75th Birthday Party was wonderful and well worth the money.
I rented 3 gobo lights. 2 with decorative gobos and the other for my personalized monogram. Also, rented 3 stands along with extension cords. Brian was really helpful during the whole period of time working together. I gave him information on the space and he was able to calculate the proper lens needed. Very nice and humble guy. Totally recommend his service!!
