We hired Ellen to serve heavy apps to 25 guests for a 40th birthday party. We absolutely recommend Ellen 110%!! She responded immediately, we were able to explain what we wanted to do and the type of food we wanted and she helped us create a menu. Her food was INCREDIBLE, flavorful, and well-balanced. Our guests were floored that we were able to arrange all of this so quickly. Ellen was so professional and fun to have chatting with guests as she prepped the food. She even wrote the birthday boy's name on one of the plates with the dips to make it extra celebratory. I wanted every recipe she had for all of the appetizers and we snuck some away from guests so we could eat them again the next day! THANK YOU for making the birthday party so fun, Ellen!
We are very pleased with the services that my best party" provided us. We took a package of games, face painting / glitter tattoos and popcorn and cotton c dy commercial machines for our son's carnival themed first birthday which the party entertainers had handled seamlessly. The 25+ kids and also the adults had a great time!! They came early to the venue and set up their equipments perfectly and we're spot on time to commence their services. From the kind of work they did, it showed their professionalism and dedication and overall we were very happy to have booked our event entertainment with them!!!
The face painting was a great addition to my daughter's 13th birthday party. They used glow in the dark paint that matched our neon/glow in the dark birthday theme. Also, they were very professional. They arrived on time and interacted with the teenage crowd very well. My daughter's friends loved all the designs that they created for them. I would definitely use Quixotic Fiestas again for my next event!
Wow. Just wow. I can’t say enough good thing about DeCicco & Sons Events and Cuisine. They arrived on time (early even) in their DeCicco & Sons Vans. The Food was Amazing and the set up was elegant. There was so much beautifully set up food and appetizers. I ordered drop-off service for my daughter’s sweet sixteen party this yesterday. And we also had two full service bar tenders with the works. They were so attentive to our needs...from Bittany who was my contact person and our event planner, (who addressed all my questions and concerns...and worked with my budget) to the bartenders who did an amazing job and kept the party going all night long. They went above and beyond to make our dream event a reality. Good job guys! At the end of the night I had to hug both Bartenders, because I was so happy with everything. Must hire...them for your event. You won’t be disappointed.
Nancy was amazing! If it wasn't for her I don't think my sons 1st birthday party (60 adults 20 children) would have went as well as it did. She showed up early and was ready to go. We rented a party room and the party before us left late leaving us little time to set up. We were scrambling to get everything done and she calmed us down and said "I GOT THIS" and set up all the food, drinks etc.... in time. She was also a wonderful hostess making sure everyone was drinking and eating properly. She will be my 'go to' going forward. Thanks so much Nancy!
Ana did a spectacular job managing our son's 3rd birthday party. We did a peppa pig themed party and she was very accommodating with all of our requests, made the process seamless and the end result was stunning. All our guests commented on how beautiful the decor was and Ana and her team were extremely professional with every aspect of planning the party. We would seriously consider hiring her again for our next event.
I was so fortunate to have the help and expertise of Tyler and the whole HighLife crew when planning my birthday party this year. Tyler was so understanding and made sure I got everything I wanted. He picked out an amazing venue, concocted an original and delicious menu as well as specialty cocktails to fit the theme, he even booked an one of my favorite bands and a DJ to keep the party going all night. The party was everything I wanted and HighLife made it so easy and affordable. And as an added bonus the staff working my party were not hard on the eyes! I highly recommend HighLife for any occasion, they go above and beyond to make sure any event is perfect and runs smoothly. I will definitely be using them more in the future.
Peter was a godsend for our birthday party for 70. He's calm, confident, efficient and reassuring. He's also a terrific chef and a charming host behind the serving table. I recommend him most highly!
Anna came for my grandfather's 90th birthday party today and we couldn't be happier with her performance! She had the crowd going, all ages from 13 years old to 90! She was very professional and knew how to show everyone a clean, fun time. I would highly recommend her for any event and would use her again for our next party! Thanks again Anna!
Jessica did a fantastic job in my husband's 50th birthday party. Before the party she was very responsive to my inquiries and promptly answered all my questions- inclusive preparing the shopping list and was very accurate on her quantities. She arrived on the scheduled time and did a fantastic job setting up the bar and getting herself organized before the guests arrival. She easily managed our 80 guests and she had no problem in staying longer than what was originally planned.
Cynthia was amazing for my daughter's 4th birthday party, kids got Balloon twisting, face painting, games and cotton candy for a great rate. The kids all enjoyed themselves. She painted each child with thier own unique face art or what they requested. The balloons were creative and fun. The kids loved the games and music, the cotton candy was yummy..kids had lots of fun with Cynthia, no complaints. I would book her again.
I hired Platter Matters Catering for my 40th Birthday Party. Ivett did a phenomenal job planning the entire event! She took care of all the rentals and flower arrangements, too. Bernadett helped me create a custom menu(many allergies in the family). The staff was very friendly and professional. All of my guests raved about their food and service. My kitchen was left spottless at the end of the event. I highly recommend them!! Emily Westport, CT
I don’t usually dole out 5 star ratings but it is well deserved here! Eleni was a monumental part of planning my son’s first birthday party. It was a football themed party for approximately 100 people. Despite some challenges with vendors, Eleni out did herself with planning and decorating the space, in addition to making and setting up the items for the dessert table! Everyone loved it and I received so many compliments! Eleni was a pleasure to work with, she was super responsive and always kept in touch with updates (no matter what time of the day or night) I am especially grateful to have had her by my side throughout the event to give me gentle reminders to keep us on schedule with my specific timeline! Eleni’s event planning services are reasonable and I would highly recommend her for any event planning, decorating and dessert table needs! I cannot thank her enough for the excellent job! Shami
I was referred to comfort after she decorated her mom birthday party, which I attended and saw how beautiful the decor was. So we decided to have comfort and her team decorate my baby shower and it was a wow factor and she delivered beyond our expectations. Thanks again.
Mirna was amazing. She made my vision come alive for my baby shower. She was affordable, prompt, and super creative. I received ssoooo many compliments about the decor and location.
I could not have been more impressed by Sheetal. She is incredibly professional, talented and hardworking. I have never encountered anything like the amazing balloon creations that she made for my daughter's Halloween party and all of my guests were in awe. She has amazingly creative ideas and can bring any inspiration to life. While her balloon talent is unreal, she also assembled a beautiful fabric backdrop/focal wall and a printed sign - she does it all! She spent so much time planning the details with me and even created a portfolio proposal with an array of options for me to choose from. She staked out my venue and liaised directly with their team so that everything would be planned meticulously in advance and perfectly executed (no last minute surprises!). She even helped me to select party supplies so that everything would be coordinated. On top of being extremely talented and professional, Sheetal could not be more sweet. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am trying to think of another party to throw just so I can hire her again! I very highly recommend Sheetal for any event!!!
Agnes did decorations for my son's first birthday party. It was amazing. Everyone loved the decorations. She was also very cooperative and incorporated everything we asked in the decorations. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
It was such a pleasure working with Rohanie and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a very detailed, thoughtful and thorough event planner and organizer. Rohanie was hired to help plan my 40th Birthday party which had an 80s Prom theme. She immediately showed her attention to detail in her initial room selections which had strict instructions for a room with windows. Boy did she ever find that! From there her careful organization and frequent check ins, lists, budgets, searches for vendors, etc went so smoothly that I never had to worry about a thing. The night of the event, Rohanie was on top of absolutely everything which allowed me to thoroughly enjoy every minute of the party with my guests. I am very thankful to have found Rohanie to plan my birthday party. I am so confident in her and her capabilities that I have referred her to other friends and family for more events. Rohanie, thank you for making my 40th birthday party truly remarkable! It was a joy to work with you!
I used Events and Styling by Gray to plan my sister's baby shower. Grayleen did an amazing job!! She's very professional and takes great pride in her work. She goes above and beyond to make sure things are perfect. My sister's baby shower turned out amazing, and everything exceeded my expectations!! I will use Grayleen in the future for all my party planning needs!
Amazing! Princess bounce house, tables, chairs, cotton candy and snow cone machine all great additions to a birthday party. Very professional, on time and explained usage of materials. Highly recommend!
Lacy & Ruby did a FANTASTIC job planning my son's 1st birthday party! Over several months of planning, they listened attentively to every request I had, and executed perfectly. They are hard working, reliable, and very professional. I will be sure to recommend The Party New York to all my friends and relatives.
