My wife and I recently hosted a casual party for 100 at our farm for my employees, customers, family, and friends. Donna was extremely friendly, attentive, and very professional. Her bartending skills are exceptional and creative - she even brought her own bar! Our friends commented on her creativity and were impressed that she went around and made sure that everyone had what they wanted. When she wasn't making drinks she was collecting empty glasses and plates from the tables. She determined what our needs were and she met us at Binny's to help select exactly what we needed before the party. Her energy level was as high after 8 hours as when she arrived. We would recommend her highly to help make any event successful!

We hired Holly the owner of Hu's Assisting to help us plan and coordinate two large parties and she was amazing. My husband and I are both busy professionals, so hiring Holly to help us plan and execute these special events is simply the best decision we made in our party planning process. She was not only professional and polished but also incredibly creative and fun to work with. She communicates well, stays calm under pressure, and is solution oriented. With her guidance, expertise, and suggestions, our parties truly surpassed all of our expectations. In fact, I consider my husband a bit of a tough critic and he could not have been more impressed with Holly and the success of our parties. Perhaps most importantly, Holly took care of every last minute detail, so that we could relax and enjoy the evenings with our guests. She thought of so many little things that made our parties not only well designed and flow smoothly but also lively, festive and memorable. The best part of working with Holly is her bright and friendly personality, and it is truly priceless to have someone by your side, in this context, who will make you smile. We would highly recommend Hu's Assisting without reservation to anyone planning a party or special event.

Meg arranged a face-to-face meeting with us several months prior to our ceremony. She also chatted with us via phone and email leading up to our event. She thoughtfully inquired about our love story and about our friends and families to get a sense of who and what we value as a couple. As promised, she walked our bridal party through the rehearsal in 45 minutes so that we had time to enjoy the rehearsal dinner. She arrived early on the day of the ceremony to interact with our friends and family as well as touch base with our DJ and photographer. During the ceremony, her energy and enthusiasm were palpable. It is obvious that she has a genuine passion for bringing couples together as they embark on their journeys through marriage. Meg even volunteered to stay throughout the reception and offered to take videos of the guests. We appreciated her efforts to go the extra mile for us! We'll send photos as soon as they become available!

Many, many thanks go to Charlene of C2Details for the wonderful job she did helping me bring together some last minute ideas for a Sweet 16 party. My daughter was very pleased with the outcome, and I so appreciate the way Charlene was so accommodating and helpful during the tight timeframe we had to work with. Bravo!

Aly helped me plan my wedding from beginning to end! She went with me to vendors and venues prior to the wedding, and was there the day of the wedding as well. On the day of the wedding, she helped coordinate hairstylists, accompanist for the ceremony, floral arrangements, food/snacks, and anything else the wedding party or I needed. Aly also collected the gifts and brought them to the hotel after the reception. The entire day went off without a hitch because she was there to handle every situation so that my husband and I enjoyed a stress-free wedding day! If you are considering hiring Aly., please do not hesitate! She is incredibly organized, timely, kind, and very detail-oriented. She will make your wedding day perfect!

Having The Penny Loafer (TPL) serve at our dinner party was the best decision I have made. When I have dinner parties, I enjoy being with our guest and TPL allowed me to be outside of the kitchen, socializing and having fun. TPL arrived on time, helped with setting up, serving, and tearing down. They are professional and friendly. Several of my guests commented on how pleasant the staff was and how relaxed I was. When I host another dinner party or any gathering, I will hire TPL again. No stress, no mess!! As a special touch, TPL gave us a complimentary loaf of bread. The bread was delicious.

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.

Nspired Xpressions has provided me with the best service I've received in years! Their customer-centric and hands on approach to my event was priceless. My 2015 baby shower was such a hit (classy w/intricate details) that I asked the owner (Mary) to assist me with the invites and decor for my son's 2016 prom send off and my daughters 1st birthday party invitation. Their prices are affordable and the work is high class quality! I hope to work with them again on my next event.

Alana was my wedding coordinator/planner and she was awesome! She was very helpful during the process. No matter when I called she answered and whatever I wanted she delivered. My wedding was beautiful. I loved everything down to the wedding programs she made for me. The reception space was beautifully decorated. I couldn't have asked for better. She helped make my day stress and worry free. All in all I'm a very happy customer and would use her company for future events. I highly recommend her, you won't regret it!

We had a GREAT time at our casino event. This was our first year and we couldn't have done it without the help of Casino Party Planners. They were the most helpful company we called when we were looking for table rentals. We ultimately rented from them because of their excellent assistance and customer service and we are so glad we did! we have been recommending them to everyone in our industry who might need a party rental place. They went way above and beyond our expectations and we will be using them for every casino night we throw and probably all our other events they can do as well. Thanks again Alan and the whole team over there!!

With a wonderful wedding planner like Holly, your stresses will melt away. She really took the time to get to know my husband and I. She listened to what was important to us and made sure the wedding day went smoothly. She coordinated all the major and minor details so that I could focus on getting ready and staying organized. When my groomsmen disappeared before dinner, Holly got them back to the hall in a timely manner so that are guest did not have to wait for dinner. We feel so blessed to have had her as our wedding planner.
