Nick did an outstanding job at our May 3, 2014 event. We had an outdoor open house for the neighborhood. He twisted balloons for a full 2 hours and the kids were thrilled. I was impressed with his patience and his creative work. It was exactly what I wanted. Just right for our event.

It was a wonderful experience working with the Great Boodini! We booked a balloon twisting show for our Cub Scout Blue and Gold Dinner. The Great Boodini showed up early and had everything prepped long before his scheduled time. When his time came, he impressed the boys with his ability to make loads of different designs with the balloons. I would highly recommend the Great Boodini for any event!

I only participated in the hiring part so can't speak to work quality, professionalism or punctuality. She was very responsiveness on the before-the-event part.

We enjoy having APD at our facility. We use their services 24/7 and they give an excellent service. Would recommend this company to anyone. If you have a company with tenant based clientele, this is the security you want.

We hired Lindsey to do facepainting at our company picnic which was held at a park. We were expecting 300-500 people so we knew we would have lots of kids! Lindsey was nice enough to bring along a friend to help. They arrived early to set up and started facepainting for all of the little cuties that started to line up! They were great with kids! Not only did the kids love the art work on their faces, the parents were extremely happy with how nice they were to their kids! Everything went smoothly and we couldn't be happier with her service! She is on the top of our list to contact again in the future for not only facepainting but other services she offers. I most definitely recommend her! Thanks for everything! Genesis

Charlene was great! She was extremely helpful, cheerful, and came overly prepared. We ended up using the entire ballroom for our corporate event instead of just 2/3rds of the space at the last minute and she had just enough extra table decor to cover our needs. I absolutely recommend her for any events in the future.

I booked Beyond A Dream Event Rentals this past weekend and the experience was awesome! The attendant came onsite properly uniformed and ready to work. I loved that they had great quality props and the light up LED looked amazing at night. I highly recommend them for any occasion.

Krystal was great!! She was extremely professional. She painted faces and twisted balloons for my daughter's 4th birthday party this past Sunday which was scheduled at the last minute. Her prices are extremely reasonable and her work is of great quality. She arrived on time. She was also very patient with the kids and they loved it. Overall she was a great catch and I highly recommend her; I will definitely be utilizing her services again!!!!

I have dined with Mark at several of his pop ups, and have hired him to cater a major fundraising event. Even with a near-last minute request, Mark and his team were beyond professional - they were charming, funny, and our guests loved interacting with them nearly as much as they loved the delicious meal! He catered to our dietary restrictions without issue, and the overall quality of the experience was unmatched. If I could give more than 5 stars, I wouldn't hesitate.

I have had a wonderful time working with Bella Events. The graduation party that this designer put together for me was so beautifully detailed. This designer has a special way of putting everything I say into a perfectly crafted design and truly pays attention to every detail. I believe that is what ultimately makes a beautiful event. Throughout my event I was constantly getting compliments on the decor. This designer was great at communication, she valued my opinion, and she really stayed on top of things. The next event I have will definitely be with Bella Events!!
