We had a college graduation party in June, 2018 for about 30 people and used Big Daddy's catering. It was so incredibly good!!!! We had a full taco bat that had something delish for everyone. Our guests continued to ask "who did the food because it was awesome!" They delivered on everything they said they would do and we couldn't have been happier with both the food and the friendly service. If you are having a party or other event, please use Big Daddy's......you won't be disappointed!!

One of best decisions we made on our Wedding Day (besides saying "I DO!") was having Events by M&M as our Wedding Planner! Meg West & her team were absolutely amazing! After months of trying to plan our destination wedding in Santa Barbara on our own - I reached out to Events by M&M. After just one phone call with Meg, she made me feel a million times better about the planning process and saved us from spending way over our budget! Meg really understood us and our entire wedding vision. She and her team took care of all the details from managing our Vendors to keeping track of our lists, RSVP's, creating our floor plan, timelines, photographer/videographer schedules, decorations, music, lighting, etc. On the day of our Wedding, Meg was like a mind reader! She literally had every thing covered and we did not have to worry about a thing! She is absolutely amazing at what she does, and we are so lucky to have found her! Thanks to Events by M&M, our Wedding Day (and all the planning leading up to it) was more perfect than we could've ever dreamed!!!

Diana Cutrell is a master entertainer & caterer, for all size parties - from an intimate dinner party to an all out wedding event - she does it all!! After attending an event that Diana catered and being blown away by the taste, quality and presentation of the food at that event, I hired Di for a 50th birthday party I was throwing. From the early stages of planning the menu with the intricacies of having some items that were vegan and gluten free, she was incredibly knowledgeable and flexible. She arrived exactly when she said she would, set up in my kitchen with her staff, and with the utmost professionalism, carried out the most delicious and beautifully plated appetizers, platters and plates of scrumptious food. Dessert was spectacular - an assortment of mini tarts filled with chocolate mousse and raspberry, strawberry mascarpone, and poached pear with vanilla bean - highly recommend!! My event went so smoothly I didn't lift a finger and was thrilled with everything. She is exceptionally organized and professional, and her staff is exemplary. I think I must've given her number out to at least 3 guests. I have attended a number of other events that she has catered and the menus have all been so different and still she is able to create such delicious and beautiful food. I can't say enough positives about her - there would be no reason for me to consider any other caterer, and if you are here searching and comparing...well, you've just hit the jackpot. Go for it. I promise you will be thrilled.

Alyssa @ Henna Speaks face painted at my daughter's first birthday party and I have to say she was AMAZING!! She is more skilled than other face painters I have seen and her friendly face + easy going personality made the kids feel very comfortable with her. I will definitely be calling her for future parties. Thanks Alyssa!😀

Brenda Cali with Gatherings for Good helped me create our perfect wedding. We hired Gatherings for Good at the beginning of our 9 month engagement and throughout the engagement process she kept us on track and made the engagement care free! Every now and again we would get an email from Brenda reminding us of what we should be planning and often times meeting with us to go over what we had planned. Brenda was always available when we needed to meet, was very organized and had many helpful suggestions for us. Our rehearsal was seamless because of Brenda and her expertise! My husband is from England and weddings are a little different there. She helped organize the British lads to help them feel comfortable knowing their role for the big day! On the big day we had a lot of decor items that Brenda and Gatherings for Good was able to decorate exactly how we asked and as a bride I never had one worry during the day that things would not be done how we had wanted them! The day was perfect and as the evening progressed I had no notice that Brenda was orchestrating the wedding. We had met before the big day and throughly discussed everything with her and during our wedding we were able to enjoy each other and our guests as she kept the evening flowing! At the end of the evening we were able to leave as she carefully gathered all our items and organized them back into the provided boxes. We trusted Brenda and Gatherings for Good for our most important day and it truly was perfect! I would highly recommend Gatherings for Good - the price point was reasonable and most importantly Brenda was kind and super fun to work with! We are now fortunate to say that our wedding planner has become one of our friends! Thank you for all you did for us and we know other brides will be lucky when they can call you their wedding planner!

Jenny catered my Henna party before my wedding. She made several different appetizers that were mostly vegetarian and delicious! Jenny pays attention to presentation as well, and her dishes look like works of art. I would highly recommend Jenny for any event you need to be catered!

The short: Savannah surpassed our expectations. Viki and I are thinking about getting married one more time so we can work with Savannah again! The long: Savannah provided day-of wedding coordination for our wedding. Even though she was contracted for just one day, she regularly checked in with us during wedding planning to offer assistance and advice. She made time to be available over phone, email, and in person for meetings with venue representatives, other vendors, and myself and my wife. She never lost track of a single detail. From the rehearsal to the day of she did a fantastic job. We surrendered the event to her and were able to have a blast on the biggest day of our lives. She took care of EVERYTHING: coordinating vendors, grabbing us for photo ops, keeping the event at a perfect pace, and likely solving all kinds of problems that I never even knew came up. She helped decorate, prepared my wife's bridal bouquet, and helped take everything down at the end of the night. She even dropped our things off at our Hotel Room while we were at the after party! We had no worries for the entire night and got to spend time with our guests and enjoying the moment. I cannot recommend someone more highly. From our perspective, the event went flawlessly and we hope to have an opportunity to work with her again in the future!

We hired Elegant Eats for an anniversary party for 25 people and the experience was delightful! It was all Chef Jacquelyn said it would be and MORE!! The food was exceptional, service was professional, and Chef Jacquelyn was wonderful to work with. She took our ideas and expanded on them to make our event truly memorable. We can't wait to be able to enjoy Elegant Eats again!

Great job! She had the party jumping and still kept it professional! All the guests were laughing and dancing and having a great time! She also had someone she brought with her to serve the hors d'oeuvres and overall the guess were just super happy! I will absolutely be hiring them again. And I imagine a lot of my guess will be hiring them as well!

    Joesph did an Amazing!! Wedding Reception Party for our Son's wedding in January 2017. His professionalism was outstanding from the time we inquired about his services through the final song at the wedding reception. We are so glad we chose the up lighting as part of our package. It transformed our venue into a dance party and our guest we're amazed!! and had so much fun. The dance floor was packed the entire time and he knew exactly what to play at the right moment ( True mixologist👍 ) Additionally he managed to play all the songs listed on the Bride and Grooms must play list. If you have a multicultural guest!list, do not worry because DJ Flamezz has you covered! His company has everything you need for your special day. He also did the sound for the Wedding Ceremony as well.

      About

      My creative arts and crafts, my creative thoughts, the invitations, party favors and decorations are where it all began for me. As with my own parties for my two children (birthdays, baptisms, graduation, etc.), I always had a theme for the occasion, and I followed suit. Also, the gifts I made for the occasion were real gifts people seen and admired. Soon later or at the party, they would ask me to make and how much I charge. Then came the decorating of parties of all occasions. What made it great for me was hearing the compliments, comments and the questions they would ask the party doer, like "Where did u..." or "Who made the...". I was close and in the mix, they were family or close family friends' parties. Then, it was by word of mouth that I got my business rolling. I introduced myself to them and set up my appointments and the date of event, covering all the details. What was so great for me was they knew what they wanted already because they had seen the beautiful crafts, arrangements and colors at a party I did. Themes, arrangements, quantity and colors are all I need. It's simple and fun. I thank God for the gift he blessed me with, and I also want to be a blessing to others. I was a packaged deal; I did it all from A to Z, and they appreciated that.
