Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!
Forsyth Designs was the mastermind behind the exceptionally beautiful and customized decor for our wedding. Matt's ability to translate our vision into a reality that far exceeded our expectations while staying on budget was the best "gift" a bride could ask for! He literally transformed a white tent into a stunning lounge-like atmosphere that accommodated our every need and desire. There isn't a large scale event or party that I would consider hosting without collaboration from Forsyth Designs. Working with Matt is seriously delightful on every level!
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.
After reviewing several bids from caterers who responded to my thumbtack request, I decided to hire Elyse Bolton from Brass Spatula to cater my housewarming party. I chose Elyse because I found her to be very easy to work with - responsive, professional, easy-going and creative. My husband is a picky eater, and Elyse easily accommodated his requests to put condiments on the side and modify a few of our selections. Her menu was interesting and she gave me several options that fit my budget. I hired her and two additional servers, as my goal was to enjoy my party. The three of them arrived about 2 hours before my guests, and immediately got to work. They had done most of the prep in advance, but did all the cooking at my home so the food was fresh and delicious. Everyone raved about it! Throughout the evening, they refreshed the selections so there was always fresh food available. We kept them busy in the kitchen all night - there's no way Elyse could have done this party alone. I had hoped and planned that at least one of the other women would be able to tend bar and/or pass out the appetizers, but unfortunately they had little opportunity to leave the kitchen. Even so, the party was a success and they tidied up before leaving. I'd definitely hire Elyse to cater my next party!
Zachary was a pleasure to work with. The food he catered for the party I planned was delicious! There were many many compliments on everything and the tamales were especially moist and amazing! I will be hiring him again in the future! Krista
Laurel helped me plan an amazing 30th Birthday Brunch. She was thoughtful with the menu and the food was fresh and seasonal, just as we discussed. There were roughly ~20 in attendance and her team made me feel like a guest at my own party. Will definitely use her again.
We hired Lura and her team for full service planning. There was no stone unturned with her. We are so thankful that we had Lura on our team and she is absolutely amazing! The planning process was so simple and Lura came up with a full proposal to every one of our ideas including the children's room with babysitters and children's entertainment. The best part of it was that Lura worked so well with us even though we were over 500 miles away. She was willing to make all of our ideas come to life no matter how big or small. Including a shot of my wedding dress hanging in the window of my hotel room with my flower girls looking up at the dress. She made sure that the hotel maintenance came to the room to set this up in a window that had no hangings. It is unbelievable the amount of dedication Lura has for her role as a planner and her undivided commitment.
Jessica was great to work with, and created an excellent menu for my party. She was very accommodating of tastes and was able to work within our budget. Everyone was trilled with the quality of the food. Overall it was a great success, would definitely use again.
We wanted something different for our garden party event and we got it!! It started quite impressively when their catering truck pulled up... The staff was attentive and efficient throughout our event. The food was fabulous. The thin crust pizzas were a hit! Staff did a great job keeping our beverage area well stocked and iced. I asked them to do this last minute and they were happy to help. Gabe always returned my calls and made our event stress free and fun! Great music too!!
Hedieh was excellent. She was clear about the packages. Had very good suggestions for what we wanted to achieve. Was very punctual. And most importantly she handled a snafu from one of the vendors on the day of the party. She took it upon herself to resolve the issue and got it done during the course of the party. Would recommend her highly.
Olive Cater team are simply the best! They catered for me an office party and my parents 40th anniversary. Even though the menus were totally different both events were a success! Arkadi is a talented and creative young chef. His food is beautifully presented and it tastes amazing! I got many compliments on those events and I look forward to having Arkadi and Elinor cater my next event.
I hired Marisa to cook dinner for me and 10 friends at my home in Noe Valley. Marisa was able to design a menu that fit with my needs. The food was very good and Marisa did a nice job plating it, which she suggested. Marisa arrived on time but the food took a bit longer than expected to be prepared and served. I would hire Marisa again for a straightforward dinner party for friends. It was a great way to spend a Friday night.
This is my first review..but I had to start with Krista. She was too good with communication. She did her job best, we had our daughter 1st birthday party organized by her..we got compliment from everyone.she was really good. Ill recommend her to most people I know.
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!
We hired Chef Norwood for a New Year's Eve dinner party and had an absolutely amazing time. He hand-crafted a four-course menu and was able to accommodate some very challenging food allergies and my sparse kitchen. We were really blown away by what he was able to do. I can't wait to have him back!
Michelle is the best! All of my Custom Vibe Events were awesome! From a fun and entertaining holiday party for engineers to an intimate retirement party with high level executives. If you want a well planned and worry free event, CVE will take care of you.
Birthday party for my brother-in-law in Healdsburg CA. On time, knowledgeable, friendly, delicious oysters. You can't go wrong hiring The Oyster Girls for your private or corporate event. I can't say enough positive things about the way they deliver a great experience. Thank you, Aluxa!
We used More SF's photo booth services along with their awesome DJ services for my daughter's 8th grade class graduation party in June. They were super responsive and accommodating in the initial communications phase prior to the party, while I asked for specific background fabrics/colors and chose wording and font for the photo print-outs. The quality of the prints at the party were excellent and the gals staffing the booth the night of the party were great in their helpfulness, interactions with the guests and good energy! We kept the photo booth constantly busy during the party and everyone had so much fun with the wide array of fun props! We would absolutely call on More SF for both Photo booth and DJ services for our next party!
