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!

Rico and DJ Mambo are hands down the best duo i have ever seen at a wedding!! My wife and I had the honor to have them at our wedding this past friday 7-7-2017 and WOW what an amazing time. Rico is a fantastic Host and he brings such an incredible energy to the party. Their music selection was beyond perfect. These guys are true professionals and they were like family members in our party!! There was not one person sitting down once the party kicked off and im still having people talk about how fantastic Rico and DJ Mambo were at the party. If your planning a wedding, these guys are a MUST at your party!!!! Thank you Rico and Dj. Mambo for making our special day the best ever!!!

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!

Lynette from Party Express was communicative and just by speaking to her knew what I wanted. She was on point and did a great job of what I wanted and expected. I would recommend her business to anyone. My daughter was amazed by the pacifier arch and the two end baby bottles provided. LOVED IT! The party was the talk at my job with coworkers. Satisfied.

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!

Grace is exceptional to work with—very professional, personable and creative! She helped plan my mom’s surprise bday party and she had great ideas, contacts, and execution. I would definitely use her services again. The party was a huge success and I was able to enjoy it stress free.

I recently hired Heather to handle a work business party that we were having and she FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. We hired her as a bartender but she went well above and beyond by stepping in to help with the food that we had delivered and became our own little caterer as well. She obviously understands the culinary arts as well. She was polite, warm and extremely pleasant. Easy to talk to and by the end of it, it was as if we had all known her for the longest time. We are a chatty and sometimes a bit crass bunch at my company but she handled it perfectly! We determined before she left, that from here on out she would be the ONLY person we contacted to help us with ANY of our parties!! I for one, am also pleased to have met such an awesome and beautiful soul!! People like her are hard to come by these days! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Using this service was a Godsend!!! There's enough stress alone getting married, These Je T'aime made it very easy for us. Their attention to what we wanted was incredible, Having periodical sit down meetings ensured accuracy in the planned details, And avoided any last minute problems. For those on a budget, This is the way to go!! There was simply no worry, They went above and beyond for our special day. Whether it was set-up at the Church, Or at the reception It was handled perfectly, Without having to check on various details, When they say Don't Worry, It's done, They mean it!! Besides the decoration aspect, These two Lady's showed compassion and understanding with simple conversation to help alleviate the stress and got us thru the Big event!! That says a lot. Je T'aime delivered exactly what was requested, And I would Highly recommend those planning a Wedding or other Party to allow Je T'aime to do the work for you. They Rock!!!

I hired Katisha as my florist a year ago and fell in love with her approach to planning. Katisha and her team are outstanding! She really took time to understand our vision. I had a whole Pinterest board dedicated to bouquets and table centerpieces. She helped me wade through all the different flowers types, styles and colors. We went to two different flower markets and she prepared 3 different proposals for us! I had such a specific vision and a very strict budget. She did a ridiculously amazing job of bringing our vision to life! Two months before the wedding, we had a unfortunate scheduling situation with another wedding planner and we had to let her go. Katisha and Theron stepped in as our wedding day coordinators. They did a phenomenal job helping us plan, handling situations on the day and keeping us on schedule. We were so blessed to have them help us on our wedding day! My husband and I both agree that if we had to do this all over again, we would hire Katisha and Theron from day ONE! They are an amazing team and It honestly felt like a close friend was planning our wedding. The most organized and professional friend ever! Lol 😊

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!!

I knew right away when I stood up in my sisters wedding that I had to have Cathie as my florist for my wedding. I knew it would be hard to top the beautiful bouquet on my sisters day but Cathie did! Cathie is always so easy to work with and knew my vision right away. I even remember there being a hiccup Bc the greenly I wanted was coming from Houston and that was the same time at the Hurricane. Cathie replaced it and I couldn’t even tell the difference. Also I told Cathie we were on a limited budget and didn’t want to spend a ton on flowers. Some florist would just skimp on the details but not Cathie, she did an amazing job! Everyone in my bridal party and wedding loved the flowers and thought our bouquets were stunning!!! I would recommend Cathie to anyone who is looking for wedding, proms, and any special occasions. Thank you for helping make our big day so special!
