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!!

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 whole company raved about Michelle and her services. She provided heavy apps and dessert for our company holiday party for 22 guests. The food was delicious, the decor was beautiful, and she even played a couple of holiday tunes on the piano before heading out! We recommend working with Michelle.

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!

The Brass Spatula catered a 60th birthday party for us, providing hors d'oeuvres, dinner, and a lovely birthday cake for 60 people. They also arranged for all of the infrastructure, such as tables, chairs, flatware, silverware, etc. Everything Brass Spatula did was absolutely brilliant. The dishes were all delicious and fresh, and the service was friendly, flexible, and efficient, and the final clean-up was perfect. This birthday bash was a huge success because of the wonderful catering by Brass Spatula.

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.

When we met Khadija we were half way through the wedding planning, and we knew what we wanted in our party but we still needed plenty of guidance...Khadija and James provided that and then some! We found Limelight Productions to be all we could have hoped for and more. Not only is their team very organized and knowledgeable but they helped us to think of things we never would have otherwise considered and they truly went above and beyond. We never had one e-mail, text or call not promptly responded to and at the right times they even gave us some needed pushes on planning and execution as our big day drew nearer. The week of the wedding arrived and Khadija and James (and Ayesha for the bouquet production) showed why they deserve nothing less than 5 stars on their reviews. They were fantastic and very professional, and our party was amazing because they were an amazing team handling things for and with us. Our thank you very much to them, and best recommendations. There is no way we could have had our wedding without them!

I can't possibly say enough good things about working with Zach. He made my wife's 40th birthday party an exceptional event - executed flawlessly with *incredibly* delicious food. Each course was more delicious than the last - a perfect, creamy chilled asparagus soup, followed by an outstanding panzanella complete with homemade bread croutons, then on to an incredible halibut dish with flawless asian flavors and finally on to a perfect chocolate tartlet with coffee stout mousse and a bourbon cream. Oh man, if we could have that meal again, we'd go back to it over and over again. It was as good if not better than any meal we've had at our favorite restaurant. Zach made the evening easy and smooth, ensuring all the details were covered and making sure our party of 8 had a memorable evening. He was calm and a real delight - even making sure our two girls (ages 3 and 5) and the family dog were taken care of (for example, letting our older daughter help cook and taste as he went). It felt like having a cool and incredibly talented friend in the house, relaxed and delightful. Can't recommend working with him enough - and we certainly will have him back for another event in the future.

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 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!

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!

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.

Olive Cater team catered my birthday party in February and it was absolutely delicious. The buffet looked beautiful and had a wide variety of dishes with many vegetarian options. The shawarma was out of this world! Even though we eat a lot, we had leftover for the next day. It was fun to see the team cook and prepare the food at my house and they left the kitchen cleaner than it was before. I highly recommend Arkadi and Elinor service.

Barbara kept my party idea alive when I kept waffling on whether I wanted to do it. On the day of she took care of everything, including getting to the event ridiculously early to secure a great spot, and created a beautiful space on the beach to celebrate my birthday. I was so glad I didn't give up on the idea in the end. It turned out to be exactly what I wanted! Everyone had a good time and the cost was very reasonable give all the support she provided. Highly recommend!

    Diane and her team created an exquisitely beautiful birthday party in our back yard. They brought furniture and decorations, put up lights and candles, helped hire a bartender and created a customized bar. The flowers, the attention to detail and all the decorations surpassed my expectations. The staff that helped us with serving and clean up worked hard and made everything flow smoothly. I highly recommend Revel!
