Chef Ellen catered my wife's surprise 50th birthday party. She created an amazingly diverse and mouth-wateringly delicious menu. She worked around every obstacle imaginable, from the unforseen limitations of my facility to the need to hide 25 guests in her small staging area as we waited for our guest of honor (who arrived 20 min late). My father-in-law, who owned and ran four major Manhattan restaurants was extremely impressed with the food and service. His review was, "Fantastic!" We will be using her services in the future, a future that is certainly bright.
Couldn't be happier with the amazing work she did for my daughter's first birthday party. All the kids loved her and several parents asked me for her contact information. I will definitely hire her again. She was very professional and knew how to keep the kids entertained.
Honestly a great artist. I needed a face painter for my nieces 10th birthday party and Sara was fantastic. Supper friendly with the kids and she knew what she was doing. Whatever the kids asked for she could do. I was nervous that the kids wouldn't like it but she was really sweet and genuinely likes painting and entertianing the kids. It was so nice not to have to worry about where the kids were the whole time. I was able to leave them with her and grab something to eat in the other room while she painted faces. Would 100% refer her to anyone looking for some entertainment for a kids party.
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!
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!
We had a small wedding celebration catered by DeCicco and Sons and it was a great experience from beginning to end. From the first text I received with a quote it was clear that they are incredibly professional and easy to communicate with. On top of the great customer service the food was very delicious and everyone raved about the taste and how well they accommodated for dietary restrictions. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and am so happy we found them through thumbtack.
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!
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.
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!
I hired Platter Matter to help with my wife's 50th birthday party and they were fantastic. Bernadett has a great crew. Ted and Samira arrived right on time, took charge and helped make the whole event a success.
Mel is a sweetheart she played my grandma 80th birthday party and it was beautiful . She is very detailed. Tell her what you want and she will deliver.
Without Brittney our wedding would not have happened! Her help as our Day Of Coordinator ensured that every detail of the wedding was handled efficiently and perfectly. Knowing that Brittney was making sure that every vendor knew where to go and how to set our things up made it so much easier for us to focus on getting ready and enjoying our day. Once the wedding was under way she continued to keep everything and everyone running smoothly and made sure that every planned event went off without a hitch. Even though she wasn't acting as our wedding planner, she was always available to help answer any of our questions and offer her advice while we solidified our arrangements in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Her fun and positive attitude was so helpful in keeping us sane as well! I can't overstate enough how integral Brittney was to making our wedding as perfect as it was!
I threw a catered birthday party, and upon signing up with Thumbtack, Brooklyn Kitchen got back to me in the hour. Throughout the entire process, their responsiveness was always immediate and thorough, anytime I had a question, and we were even able to set up a call to discuss the catering. The food was delivered promptly and ready to present/serve, friends raved about the wings at the party and the NEXT DAY. Highly recommend.
Agnes was absolutely amazing. When we first met she was able to capture my vision within the first ten minutes. She came on time and prepared. The day of the event went smoothly. Everyone was in love with her design. I will be using her for future events.
I hired Mariage Blanc Designs to plan my husband's 40th bday party. The theme was 90's Hip/Hop & R&B and boy did Stephanie Blanc deliver. She took my idea and ran with it. She converted my backyard into an outdoor lounge that transported my guests and I back to the 90's. My husband especially was blown away. He loved everything.The details that Stephanie put into the design, on a short timeline at that, were awesome! From the faux brick back drops to the cookie pirouttes to mimic cigars to the turn tables where the cakes were placed...EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING!! Stephanie made my husband's 40th birthday party a truly memorable one. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to others or hire her for future events. She is that good!!
I had an awesome experience working with Frecklez! I ordered a cake and a dessert table spread for my best friends 30th birthday party and they did an amazing job. Everyone kept going back for seconds, they couldn't believe how great everything tasted. Everyone, including me was blown away when we saw they had a chocolate melting pot where people could dip things in. That wasn't expected. I could go on and on but I definitely recommend Frecklez for your next event! Thanks Ativa for an awesome experience.
I hired Inger and his crew for my wife's birthday party, they did an outstanding job they made sure everyone was taken care of. Wonderful job guys keep it up. Would recommend to anyone.
First off ours wasn't a typical event. My son was married last year in Seattle and this was the NJ celebration for all those who couldn't make the trip. Second, I contacted Marcia exactly a month prior to the date. Not much time at all. And I had never worked with a planner before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Third, other than centerpieces and favors they had no clue what they wanted and Marcia helped me pull ideas together. The number of changes that took place in the last 5 days alone - people dropping out, people deciding to attend, a change of the entire floor plan which meant moving the DJ and changing table numbers - was making me crazy but she kept telling me it would be ok. On the day of while setting up our wine bottle centerpieces she realized we hadn't sent enough flowers and still managed to improvise and make everything beatiful. Because they wanted open seating I wanted to reserve 6 tables for family. She not only greeted all our guests (because we were arriving later) but also managed to pull off the reserved tables with a list of names to seat at those tables. When we arrived everything was perfect, everyone loved it. I was able to just enjoy our friends and family and have a good time celebrating without any worries. When the party was ending she and Amanda were very quickly breaking down and packing up everything that would come back to me. This review was long because I wanted to get across how much she did in just one month. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a party planner, wedding planner, decorator. You'll be happy you did.
I believe I found the perfect person for y garden party. I planned my husband 50th birthday and we wanted something intimate and elegant. We had a garden Indian theme with beautiful colors from my beautiful country in India. She was very professional and attentive.
