Nick was an excellent addition to my children's birthday party. His designs were very exciting and held up very well. My son's special birthday hat lasted for weeks following the event. He included my grandmother with a special balloon corsage, and was entertaining to watch. Most importantly, he interacted with the kids very well, he was very professional, and blended into the party very seamlessly.
It was great working with Joe. He was always available by phone and email. He answered all the questions we had before booking him for our wedding. I was a little disappointed in the sound quality during our wedding ceremony. The microphone kept cutting in and out. We weren't video recording our ceremony, but if we were, I would've been very disappointed with the sound afterwards. He tried to fix the microphone during our ceremony, but the quality remained the same. Joe played some songs while our pianist and violinist were setting up inside to play during the cocktail hour. He played great music all night and even accommodated us for our last minute changes for the bridal party introductions for the reception. My fiance sent him the info the night before our wedding and he still made it happen. Overall we had a great experience with Joe and he really helped make our wedding day memorable. We also booked an open air photobooth with Joe and his helper, Alex(sp?) was a great help. He encouraged people to take pictures and went to ask Joe for help when there were any issues with the photo booth camera. Joe had sent examples for the photo booth strip designs and I wasn't a fan of the designs he sent. I looked up other ideas on the internet and sent him designs for what I liked. He was able to create something that looked great for the wedding. I didn't see the design before the wedding, I would've liked to, however my fiance and I waited until the last minute to take care of this because of other things we had deal with. Overall... A+!!! Thanks Joe!
Donna was fantastic. She bartended a cocktail party for 45+ people and was a real pro. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her the next time I have a party!
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

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!
My family and I attended a Chai Lifeline Purim party on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, where Tamar from Tamariel paints was face painting the kids...as usual, Tamar did an amazing job, not only face painting, but making ALL my kids, special needs kids included, feel like a million bucks. She is wonderful, patient, and skilled. She gives each child her undivided attention. We have been to many functions where Tamar has worked, and my children look forward to getting face painted by her. It is the highlight of every party, and when Tamar is not there, they are very disappointed. I would recommend Tamar and Tamariel paints to anyone looking for a great face painting experience.
My family and I were over pleased with the services from Captivating Allure! The owner Tiffany came in and within minutes transformed my apartment in a spiderman cave. The children had a blast, the adults adored the decorations. The candy table was to die for. The color scheme was amazing and each party favor was filled with lots of great goodies. I cannot wait till I have another party for whatever holiday, birthday, or just because celebration. I am looking forward to the next innovation this wonderful mind, talented being that God created to be creative brings to life! Thanks Captivating Allure!
I am so Happy with the Work Andrea did at my Daughters Birthday Party, she was there on time, she was respectful to the children and myself, she was there on time and had all the equipment and supplies she needed as I requested! I will for sure have her from now and on in all my parties! She is awesome! I will definitely recommend her! You will never Go to some one else! She’s awesome!
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!
Petya did a great job with the balloons she made for my party. I highly recommend using her . She is very professional and experienced.
I'm glad to find iMktg Services. You guys planned and executed perfectly. I couldn't ask for more. I'm so touched for all the efforts. Izza is the best! She helps me out from the start to finish. I found a vendor that does everything. From planning, decorating and photobooth. Her team are very helpful as well. They make sure that all my guest are relax and comfortable. Izza, thank you! Job well done. :))
We absolutely loved these girls! They are so helpful and amazing at what they do. I gave them my list of task items to get done for the day of my wedding and they handled it with ease! I didn't have to stress or worry about a thing, they took care of everything! I had so many complements from other guests about how helpful and professional they were. I defiantly recommend them to anyone who is looking for help with any kind of party!!!
My daughter got married in 2015 and Annalisa was our go to gal..she helped us out with everything and listened to my daughter's ideas and made them happen. Phantom of the opera was her theme! Bella events helped answer questions and got the wedding venue to do what was expected and her day was special. She made the bride's/bridal party bouquets. Centerpieces and many extras added. Would highly recommend her again.
Lora is absolutely the best! She was super professional from the beginning till the end. She made a beautiful flower wall for my baby shower and it was a huge hit with all the guests! She was very responsive throughout the 2 months of planning and even did a demo for me ahead of time which was very helpful. She was very punctual and organized. She really has a passion for her work. All of her hard work and efforts are shown clearly in her beautiful work! I feel so lucky I found her through Thumbtack. I would definitely recommend Lora's Floral Arrangements & Decorations to all my friends and family. Thank you Lora! :)
Yanni, is the best when it comes to events. She did my Mothers 60th b-day party and did a amazing job, I used her for my cousins baby shower and she did start to finish coordinating for both from finding the venue, to decor,waitstaff to menu. Yanni and her staff show up and show out and always exceed my expectations. Will always use her for my events
The owner is so personable she is a godsend. She helped me plan, decorate and serve my aunts birthday dinner within a short amount of time. Her team was awesome. Even when my caterer fell through she was able to resolve that issue for me also. Her team is awesome. I new from the moment I sat down with her and her assistant this experience would be fantastic and it was more than what I expected. I will definitely be using them for all my future events. Just tell them what your looking for and they handle the rest. Thank you Tara and Shackzin Events
I used Outside the Box for my graduation party. Everything was perfect and what I asked for. All I had to do was show up. She was very professional and I didn't have to break the bank.
