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!!

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.

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!

We hired Farm to Table (Zachary Albright) to come to our house and prepare a meal for a birthday dinner for 14 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing I wouldn't change a thing. The menu was extensive and the price was reasonable. I would suggest that he bring a helper as it was a little overwhelming for one person to prepare. I would highly recommend Farm to Table.

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!

Daniel did an outstanding job! From the music, up lighting and emceeing was amazing. He was responsive, helpful and open to playing anything we wanted. If you are looking for a DJ that you can trust and get everyone on the dance floor, look no further than Daniel! He will communicate professionally and make your wedding, party, or event a day to remember.

I was looking for someone to do face painting and balloon twisting services for my daughter's 1st Birthday Party. I found Hooray Balloons Kids Entertainment and a couple other businesses that offered similar services on Yelp. Elaine was the first to quickly respond! She answered all my questions and was able to accommodate my requests. She was also great about checking in prior to the event. Elaine was very professional and you could tell that she loves what she does!! A lot of my guests were very impressed and the kids liked her too! Her face painting artwork was on point and she had cute options for balloon twisting. I would definitely recommend her and will use her services again!!

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!

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 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.

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!
