If you want delicious food at an affordable price, you want Chef Kev! Im am surly the pickiest eater there is, but Chef Kev got the best of me! We hired Chef Kev to provide the food for a networking event that we hosted. As an event planning company, we have had the chance to taste food from many different caterers throughout the Maryland, DC and VA area, but Chef Kev is among the best! His food made all the difference for our event and we cannot wait to begin referring our clients too him! (I should also mention how professional, and neat he was. He left the venue looking better than when he got there!)
CraftyMomDC was a superstar at our school auction fundraiser. They prepared all the food platters and made them extremely attractive to boot. They kept the food replenished and the food tables clean. They cleaned as they worked so it was the shortest clean up in YEARS. They can do as much or as little as you need them to do and they will do it well. I was so impressed. They managed teenagers who were volunteering and quickly established a pleasant, constructive relationship with them. I was able to focus on the the auction event and not worry about food. Three weeks later people are still talking about what a great night it was, how good the food was, and how stress-free it was. When you hire the right people for the right needs, you can be stress free. And BTW, we made more money than we had in four years. Food matters, folks. CrafyMomDC will help you do it right.
Great company always on time really professional affordable pricing for your next event you need to call them
After I decided to plan a 70th birthday party for my father, I knew I wanted something different other than just a few guests at home. After speaking with the owner of ALD, April, about what I was looking for and what my budget was, she immediately started helping me brainstorm options for locations and vendors to take care of everything from cupcake orders to banners. She even went to visit the restaurant, see the room, and speak to the restaurant event planner before I could make it over to the location. April is super organized and has timelines and deadlines for each step in planning the event and she always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner. When the day of the event arrived she had all of the materials as discussed and decorated the dining room with a beautiful black and gold theme. She provided everything from chair covers and table linens to balloons. Everything went as planned and she stayed around to make sure everything was on track. I'm so glad that I worked with ALD! They created a memorable and unforgettable event.
Honey Do was great to work with - they did a wonderful job in planning my event and making it a success. I would recommend them and I will use them again.
We loved working with Mary! She knew our venue (Historic London Town) like the back of her end, so it made it so much easier to handle all of the ins and outs leading up to our wedding and on the day of. Mary was such a lifesaver for us, helping us think through the setup of the event, planning our rehearsal to make sure we knew what we were doing, and corralling our vendors in line with our planned schedule. Whatever we needed from Mary, she was willing to do, and always with a huge smile. This included taking care of the clean-up of the decor items we brought to the venue, and even meeting us a couple days later to pass off things that couldn't fit in our car. Would work with Mary again if given the chance!
I needed someone to handle event logistics for a corporate event. The event was held in the DC area, but I'm from out of town. It was so helpful to hand off my plan to Michele and Laura. They were able to handle the ordering of food/bev for breakfast, breaks and lunch. Arrange for the deliver, set up and take down. Laura handled the day of activities. She was professional and courteous to our guests.
Planning for a West Point graduation is like planning a destination wedding for royalty. The weeklong pomp and ceremony of the cadets graduation and commissioning as an army officer on a highly secure and secluded army base requires months of planning. Some plan a year out. Booking hotels, helping guests navigate the campus, getting on and off base and through security check points, transportation to West Point and then around campus and town, planning for meals, seating at events, securing a spot for the commissioning ceremony, is not for the faint at heart or for amateurs. I hired a professional wedding and party planner. She booked lodging and reception hall, secured transportation service to and from post, arranged for breakfast food and snacks during commute to post, meals to be delivered to post for commissioning ceremony and food for our private reception back at the hotel. She had maps and program booklets with details of the events of the day and activities during free time. She thought of it all and executed it without a hitch. Meanwhile, I was able to enjoy the festivities of my son’s graduation and commissioning and enjoy the company of my guests. It was a memorable occasion. Whether it’s the army, navy or air force academy graduation, you want to hire Jacqueline Johnson of Make It A Delightful Day event planning services. The name of her service says it all.
We hired Toria for my Goddaughters second birthday. She was wonderful! She arrived on time and ready to be ambushed by kids. Her work was great and she was genuinely polite and professional. She didn't even bat an eye when my Goddaughter decided to paint herself with Toria's paint (after already having her face painted!!) She did such a wonderful job most of the adults received face painting as well. We'll definitely use her again!
Full service wedding planning from beginning to end. Marvelous job!
she is an amzing woman, and her work is very impotant to her. This is something you can see through out her creations and preformance! I recommend you book her for everything and every event! you will be 110% satisfied !
JCE did a wonderful job for my first "Plugged" event. The was an empowerment forum and from the beginning to the end JCE did an excellent job, with communication, product delivery, scheduling, planning, food selection, vendor preparation and staffing. My event was seamless and I don't know what I would have done without this company planning my event. We are due for another "Plugged" empowerment session 2015 and JCE will be planning and working this event again.
I hired Keya to decorate a holiday party I was planning and she went above and beyond my expectations. She came well prepared and executed with precision. I'll most definitely be working with her again on future projects.
This has to be one of the best experiences I've had with planning any type of event! She was attentive to my needs and paid great attention to detail. I also witnessed her work multiple events and treated each one with great care and expertise! If you don't use her you're cheating yourself!
Give DIY the theme and vision you want for your special occasion, and they are off and running! Special attention to the finest detail goes into their event planning process. Looking forward to having DIY doing my next event! Highly recommend!
When my now wife and I set out to plan our wedding, we were one of those couples who thought hiring a planner was unnecessary. We had roughly 6 months to pull it off. We fancy ourselves as reasonably intelligent and financially responsible people and we thought that was plenty of time. Fast forward 4 months. The stress began to mount and panic had set in. Our budget is dwindling. We broke down and decided to hire a day-of coordinator. Better late than never, but who do we call? Every one we spoke to was either way too expensive or not the right fit personality wise. Thanks to Thumbtack, we found Vanessa. We are incredibly happy we did and we couldn't have pulled off our awesome wedding without her. Here's just a few of the reasons why: 1) Attitude - She has the PERFECT demeanor for event planning. She kept us on track, but was never pushy. Very personable and easy to talk to. Every time we spoke to her we felt both at ease and motivated to check more off of our list. 2) Creativity - Simply put she has great ideas. Whether it was decor, logistics, floor planning, etc., she listened to our inputs (which weren't always in lockstep - welcome to married life) but put here own spin on things. Our wedding was weeks ago and we still are getting comments on how beautiful everything was. 3) Contacts - Vanessa made great recommendations for vendors, and didn't do so based on any kickbacks or financial gain to herself. In fact, we had one vendor who was somewhat flaky that we had already booked. She was able to line up a "just in case" vendor for us. 4) Organization - Nothing fell through the cracks and she thought of small details we didn't have the capacity to (because we were too busy being crazy pants). 5) Value - She is worth every penny and I would argue she is a bargain for the service she provides. This is especially in comparison to other planners out there. If you need help planning an event, not just a wedding, we highly suggest you reach out to Vanessa @ Little Black Book. You absolutely will not regret it.
I didn't think I needed planning assistance, but eventually became overwhelmed with all of the shower details. I met Tillie through this site and she helped me every step of the way. It really pays to hire someone who has experience and knows what they're doing. Party planning sounds fun and easy, but there's alot to it that I didn't realize at first. Thank you Tillie for helping me and creating such an amazing and fun bridal shower.
Stacia's professionalism was outstanding. The event was handled with poise, business savvy, and she went far and above showcasing her craft. Ms Johnson will be a great asset to her customers and to the business of Wedding Planning.
Amanda and Wendy planned my son's 1st birthday party and it was everything I wanted and more! The planning process was a breeze, and the party went off without a hitch. I'll definitely use them again!
Outstanding and very responsive customer service with an affinity for astounding attention to detail. She exceeded our expectations considering insurmountable circumstances to no avail. We thoroughly enjoyed working her and would profoundly recommend her for any event planning we might have in the future. - Akoni V.
