Nick was the highlight of our event. His skill is beyond belief: very talented and creative without sacrificing the speed. In addition, Nick is a great communicator. He responded to my emails always within 24H: often times in 1H. His personality was what you want in your event: polite, punctual, and friendly. I would recommend him for anyone who is looking for a ballon artist. If I have an event in future, Nick would be the person I will reach out for entertainment for kids and kids at heart.
So far so good, event on 11/5.
Rev. Ross made our Wedding the event of the year. Thank you Rev. And thank you Thumtack. I highly recommend her for your wedding.
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
Charlene is amazing! She’s down to earth and a people person. She’s real! She does amazing work and values somebody in her field who is trying to make a debut. She doesn’t look down on the rookies. She’s one of the rare people I love in life who lifts as she climbs! She will make her way to the top and pull you with her. She’s so dope! Dope in her creativity. Dope in her overall personality as a women. Dope as an event decorator. Overall DOPE! Her and C2Detail Events are already amazing and they’re not even close to to hitting their ceiling yet. 🙌🏾🙏🏾😘
Lili Marie Parties was courteous and helpful in providing a face painter for my event. The face painter herself was a huge hit- she painted many faces with a smile on her face the whole time. She sat herself down at a table and got to work with little instruction which was very helpful in the relative chaos of our event! Thank you Lili Marie Parties- we will be using you again!
Dane's Dishes is the perfect caterer for any event! Dane's Dishes caterered my wedding and everything was absolutely phenomenal! Everything is bought and made fresh before the event. They truly do cater to your wants and needs! All staff are friendly and efficient! The way they present their food is beautiful. Dane's Dishes go above and beyond to make sure her customers are more than happy with their event. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. I mean who doesn't want homemade fresh food for a great price?!? If you're looking for a caterer for any event or occasion I would recommend Dane's Dishes any day of the week!! Thank you Dane's Dishes for making the biggest day of my life all the more perfect!
My wedding took place on August 31, 2018 and it wasn’t until 4 to 5 weeks before my wedding that I decided I needed a day of coordinator. When I read the reviews for Blanchard Spevial Events, they really impressed me. From the first time I spoke with Heidi, she put me at ease. She really took the time to talk to me about what I envisioned for my wedding day and was just so willing to help in any way possible. I had no idea how important that would be until I realized that I hadn’t purchased the flowers and some of the decor that I needed for the wedding venue. This was two days before the wedding and without Heidi‘s help, things just would not have come together the way they did. She worked with the venue decorator to pull together the look that I wanted with items that she had access to. She also managed to keep me calm from the day of the walk-through right through the wedding. I greatly appreciate her patience, knowledge of how the wedding should flow, and outstanding ability to work with people. Choosing to work with her was one the best decisions I made and I am so grateful to Heidi for everything she did to help make my wedding a beautiful success.
Mrs. Charlene immediately understood my vision and made it come to life. She is very prompt, thorough & professional. I would highly recommend her to coordinate or decorate your venue.
Tamar was wonderful! She was so professional and everyone at our corporate event loved their designs. She was so easy to work with, I would absolutely hire her again!
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.
Kristen and Jill decorated our reception venue BEAUTIFULLY! They met with us during our final walk-through of our reception venue and executed our vision for the space perfectly, truly breathing life into it. Their clever touches with the decorations and their artistic finesse really made a difference – we got TONS of compliments on the attention to detail in our decorations. Kristen and Jill were the perfect solution for us, as we were getting married and doing photos beginning at 1 PM, but we couldn’t get into our reception venue to begin set-up until 2 PM. We had originally planned a very DIY wedding, but Kristen and Jill saved the day by decorating our reception venue for us while staying respectful of our original vision. Plus, they were affordable. We highly recommend!!!
Kathy was absolutely amazing! I had hired her for serving and helping out for a pre wedding event for my brother. Every single person was praising at how nice she was and on top of her stuff. She didn’t waste a single minute since the time of arrival. She literally took care of everything so I was able to tend to my guests and take care of other things and moreover enjoy the event! Thank you so much Kathy
Jackie's Elegant Event Decor is far more beyond elegant. When she puts her heart into her work it is unbelievable the outcome of her decor. Excellent job! 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽
Sherece and her team did a fantastic job bringing together my vision and adding her own touch! I love what she did at the price she guaranteed. Sherece is very kind and takes an extreme interest in your event as it's her own.
Lisa is very organized, detail oriented, and creative. She is very easy to work with and reliable. I would highly recommend Lisa for your next event!
The Party Girls provided wonderful service bringing enthusiasm and catering to the needs of the guests. I was able to enjoy the event as well knowing that we were in good hands.
