Nick was AMAZING!!! He was the biggest hit of our daughter's first birthday! We had over 150 people plus a bounce house and sleigh rides and people are still talking about Nick and how great he was at balloon twisting and wonderful with all the children!! I recommend him over and over and plan to hire him again for our next kid's party!! He is very quick with communication and easy to work with, I never had to worry about him before or during the party. Thanks for everything Nick!
Totally perfect evening provided by Joe Stephen being the DJ at my 60th birthday party. I highly recommend his ability to turn an ordinary party into a huge dance party. And I will definitely utilize his company again. Thank you Joe!!
The Great Boodini is amazing! He is super easy to work with on bookings. He seeks input on the interests of his clients to personalize the experience, and he is highly entertaining. My husband was thrilled with the performance on his 30th birthday. The whole family enjoyed the performance that included amazing highlights. We appreciated the integration of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle balloon animals. The Great Boodini is a class act and we look forward to seeing him again.
thank you thank you thank you for making Kayla's birthday party as success. Everybody enjoyed your magical tricks and balloon. So I will be using your service again you are the greatest thank you thank you thank you Cloris Jones.
Donna was our bartender for an 80th birthday celebration and she was much more than that throughout the event. She made sure everyone had what they needed and visited each table to see if anyone needed refills. She went above and beyond by helping collect empty plates and glasses, helping serve dessert and making sure that dishes and glasses were washed and put away. It was nice to be able to not have to worry about my guests or the dishes. I definitely will be glad to use her again if we ever have another gathering at our home.
The highlight of our party was Aunt Nora! Birthday girl has asked multiple times since the party when aunt Nora can come again! Nora made everyone feel included even those kids we had in attendance who were a bit fearful of clowns. She is a definite "must have" for every childrens birthday party for sure!
they were great and handled many children at my six year old's birthday party they made some unusual designs which became toys for the kids. They were also reasonable and were a big hit!
I had pocket circus perform at my son's 2nd birthday. We had about 20 children all 8 and under. They were very entertained by the show.
We hired Anais for face painting at our daughter's 4th birthday party at our home. She did a great job and the kid's loved it. She was really easy to work with and had no problems. We would definitely use her again.
I had an event in Gurnee, Il and I hired Special Occasion to help me plan and organize it. I was absolutely very happy with them. Very professional, very well organized and friendly all the way around. My event was elegant and everyone that came was amazed of how beautiful everything was. The band, master ceremony, dj, event decorators ect...job very well done, absolutely just beautiful. Thank you Special Occasion Event. For making my event a beautiful memory. Very truly yours, Yolanda
My wife's 40th Birthday Party was a total success thanks to Hu's Assisting! All I had to do was give her a date and a guest list, Holly took care of the rest. She gave me options for a fun theme, I chose a Murder Mystery Dinner then relaxed while Holly created invitations, a menu including drinks and appetizers. She got a great deal on the chair and table rental, and the bartender and wait staff were Awesome! Hu's Assisting made me look like a Rock Star! Thanks Holly!
Scott is absolutely wonderful. We had him at our children's birthday party a few years ago, and since then many friends have used him at their kids birthday parties. He is wonderful with the kids. He is patient when they continue to come back for their 3rd, 4th, or 5th balloon animal. He recently donated his time for a fundraiser that we had and we cannot thank him enough. He stayed long after the agreed upon time and we could not be more grateful. Scott is wonderful and makes the party that much more fun with his balloon animals. The kids all love him!
Charlene did an amazing job planning and decorating for my mom's 75th surprise birthday garden party. She was very responsive and created a memorable event. Everyone raved about the decor.
She was great! We met ahead of time to discuss my 60th birthday backyard party. She came and did it up, she took my ideas and did a wonderful job, made suggestions and it was beautiful. It was more than I expected. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to others.
We cannot say enough great things about Heidi and highly recommend her wedding services to any other couples! Heidi served as our wedding coordinator in September 2017 and she was worth her weight in gold so that we could have a relaxing and elegant wedding. Thanks to Heidi we were able to truly enjoy our time with all of our guests many of whom had traveled from Europe and across the US to be with us. On the day of the wedding Heidi did an incredible and efficient job running our early morning rehearsal which immediately put everyone participating in the ceremony at ease. She and her two assistants were then present at our venue throughout the day coordinating the vendors as they arrived, setting up decor, and bringing us our bouquets for photos. She even sent me a few photos of the cake and decor as sneak peeks as we were out and about all day with our wedding party. Once we arrived at the venue everything looked absolutely perfect and she even had water set up for the wedding party as we got ready to walk down the aisle (she also had water, snacks, pain killers and whatever else anyone needed!). During the evening wedding Heidi kept everything to schedule and moved the guests seamlessly throughout the venue from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to dinner to dancing. She worked closely with the photographer, caterer, and musicians to make sure everything went to plan. If anything went wrong during the day or evening we did not know about it! At the end of the wedding she and her two assistants packed up all our boxes of decor/cake/leftover alcohol and took it to our hotel so our family and friends were able to go back to their hotels or to the after party with no worries. In addition to the actual wedding day, Heidi was wonderful from day one. After we decided to work together we met with Heidi early in the summer and showed her around our venue. A couple of weeks before the wedding she also came to our final walkthrough with our caterer. We also had multiple check-in calls the week leading up to the wedding to go through final details. During the week before the wedding she was in touch with all of our vendors to introduce herself and to work out any details which took all vendor management out of our hands. In short, we had a very detailed schedule and notes of how we wanted our wedding to run and look and Heidi executed it with precision and even helped us think of details we might not have thought of ourselves. We had 60 guests and wanted a personal, professional, and elegant Chicago wedding. So many guests commented on how smoothly everything went during the day and how much they enjoyed the pace and look of the evening. We were a very happy bride and groom!
Was so surprised how fast she did creative designs for my son's birthday party! The kids had a blast.
Tina did an amazing job at setting up decorations for our wedding, she made me feel relaxed and reassured that everything would be taken care of, which it was! She definitely helped make our special day perfect!
Don’t hesitate – choose Barney as your photographer! We had hired Barney for our Baby's 1st Birthday and he is incredible. He had a challenge with lighting at the venues but he did it with complete ease and style. The photos tell the story and bring back every feeling from our event and we look at them feeling laughter.He is truly talented and captured everything. We will treasure these forever. Thank you so much!!
I hired iMktg for my twins birthday. Izza's design is perfect with my twin's Paris themed party. Me and my husband is very satisfied with the all the services. Her backdrop is hand made by her graphic designer. We feel fortunate that I attended a party were she is the event planner and decorator. Then I call my friend which is her client at that time and she highly recommended her. Thank you so much Izza and team. You turn my vision and dream into reality.
Creating memories just did the birthday party celebration for my 10-year-old few weeks ago . The job they did was outstanding .first, say had great concepts/ideas that were extremely entertaining for group of 10-year-old kids who as we know may be tough crowds and difficult to impress these days. we had treasure hunt in the public park and it turned out 10 times better than I imagined it to be . The hunting items, the stories, all the clues were created and executed by creating memories . Second, execution was flawless . Girls arrived at the park hours before me and my guests, set up everything, and guarded all the locations . They went way above and beyond of what I expected with purchasing items, setting up surprises, writing rhymes clues. They were very professional, communicating regularly with me, keeping me updated on all the progress .I would highly recommend using this company because I have never had better experience with anyone in the area
Zoltan with Bounce N Celebrations did an AMAZING job at my son's 3-year-old birthday party. We had about 35 kids between the ages of 2-8, and he was very patient, very professional, very engaging, and the kids absolutely LOVED his work! The glitter tattoos were the biggest hit, but the balloon swords and wands were not to go unnoticed - the kids loved those as well. Zoltan is extremely prompt and thorough. He got RIGHT back to me any time I called with a question or an update weeks before the party, he was very clear when he outlined what I should expect or needed to do, and he just made everything very simple and easy on my end. I felt in good hands and I could tell right away he was a reliable professional and person who I could trust. He is also very kind and reasonable and humble, and he is good with the kids. He didn't mind staying a little later so that some of the kids could get a balloon in addition to their tattoos, and when one child's balloon popped, he made another one even though the party was over and he had packed up all of his things. He didn't even bat an eye about it - it was his natural reaction to unpack and fix the problem. He was really perfect entertainment for our party, and we look forward to hiring him again. I strongly recommend Bounce N' Celebrations. Thank you Zoltan!!
