Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am very meticulous and want everything to be just right for the client. I am very friendly and most clients are hugging me goodbye when I leave because of the relationship that is formed between us by the end of the night. What I like most about my job is the occasional conversations and relationships that are developed during the event. The job is on a professional basis, but friendly conversation and making sure the client is relaxed and having a good time is what I enjoy most about the job.

Event Help and Wait Staff

I had the pleasure of having Robin and her staff work at my wedding reception. I spoke to Robin a few months prior to my wedding and we talked about the plan and what each one of her staff would be doing. I was having a hard time finding affordable wait staff and finding someone I trusted. Right off the bat, Robin made me feel comfortable and was easy to talk to! My husband and I look back and think the best investment we made for our reception was hiring Robin and her staff!!!! They were EXCELLENT!! They arrived promptly at the designated time, supplied ice I had asked for in a large cooler, jumped right in to help set up last minute things, was super friendly to my husband and I and our guests!! They helped clean up food and drinks, refresh our buffet, clean up the buffet, make and serve drinks, poured our champagne toast quickly for everyone, and made sure everything we needed was done even when we didn't realize we needed something. my wedding reception would not have went off without a hitch without Savor Your Party!!! They arrived dressed in nice white shirts, bow ties, and black pants. They were very professional!! If we ever have a large event again, I will definitely hire them!! I cannot say enough GREAT things about them! If you are debating whether to hire Robin, don't think twice! You will not regret it!! Thanks again Robin and staff!!!!

Very easy to work with -- we needed help on short notice, and Robin was very responsive. The staff was excellent and efficient, and cheerful throughout. Absolutely would use again.

Event Help and Wait Staff

Robin and her partner were great. We hired them via Thumbtack for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. Robin was quick to respond to emails and calls, and followed up regularly. At the event, I was a little worried during the service that something had gone wrong because I hadn’t heard anything, but it turns out they’d set everything up perfectly and quietly without needing my intervention. Would definitely hire again if the need arises.

Event Help and Wait Staff

I didn't know what to expect hiring staff for an event. I have never hosted this large of a party, so I was nervous as to how things would turn out. I am so glad that I did, because Robin and her staff were absolutely wonderful. The staff worked around the clock to exceed my expectations. The house was left spotless and every detail was managed. Both of the staff also made sure I was well taken care of with a drink in my hand at all times..I will absolutely be bragging about this company for years to come. Thank you is not enough!

Event Help and Wait Staff

Robin was such a HUGE help, and she was an absolute dream to have her here while we hosted a large party in our office. She's fast, friendly, and professional. It's not easy for me to sit back and enjoy an event if I'm playing host, but I had nothing to worry about with her here.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I recently received my Food Handler Certificate and my Basset alcohol certificate from the Illinois liquor and control center.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I am a teacher during the school year and I started working for an event planner on the weekends working parties. I enjoyed it so much and wanted to work more parties, so I decided to try it on a smaller scale on my own.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    The most common jobs are setting up the buffet, making sure the food is always replenished, clearing the food, and packing it up in Tupperware and putting it away for leftovers. After the food is put away, the clearing of the dirty plates and washing the dishes so the kitchen is clean before I leave. Other jobs require making and serving drinks to the guests walking around with appetizers etc. Really whatever the client needs me to do, I do!
