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.
I enlisted the services of Angel Waitress Services for a 40th birthday party at my home and had the pleasure of working directly with Nancy! From our initial phone conversation to now, Nancy remained professional and courteous. I was hesitant to "blindly" hire someone I'd never met, but Nancy was warm, helpful and experienced. She assured me she would "take charge" and allow me to actaully attend my party...so said, so done! We had about 40+ guests and a set timeline, so everything had to be done on time, in order and to certain specifications -- she delivered on all accounts. She kept and eye on my husband and I throughout the night and was ready to assist with whatever was needed. She was flexible with time, quite a multitasker and also very good with the kids. I would recommend Nancy to my family and friends and will definitely hire her for future events. Thanks again, Nancy!
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!
I had the most pleasurable experience working with Ultimate Affairs Event Planners for my 40th birthday celebration. The food was delicious as well as the presentation, and the service was very professional. They exceeded my expectations, and helped make my celebration very memorable. Thx again.
Liked the way Deb decorated our son's first birthday party.
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 such a pleasure to work with!!! She really got the vision we were going for with our baby shower and made it a beautiful reality!!! She was always very punctual and accommodating and wanted to ensure she delivered a high quality output that met our desires. I highly recommend her for your next party!!!!
I could not have done my wedding without tyla. She keep me on track and made my wedding day on point. I would hire her for any event in a second. She was wonderful to work with.
Dream Events by Dani was an excellent choice for my daughters 16th birthday party. Everything was on point and she did a great job in setting up the candy table. I would highly recommend Dream Events by Dani.
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 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!
Trisha and her team were exceptional. She and her team helped me decorate the dessert table, set-up all of the food and prep the bar. We had our first-ever house party with 50 guests and Trisha and her team helped keep the party going and flowing. No one was without a drink in their hand and the team helped clean up throughout the evening. I highly recommend them and can't wait to book them for another party at my house.
I had an amazing experience with Loris. She was very attentive to my needs as a bride while planning my wedding and helped put me at ease amidst what would usually be a chaotic time. Very grateful for that. She was also flexible with my budget. On the day of she made sure everything went perfectly.
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.
May I begin by saying this lady right here does it all . Not only does she organize parties, she bakes , decorates , and she is also a MC. She literally made my baby shower worth wild within a budget . She isn’t money hungry at all . I told her what my budget was, gave her my ideas, she also added her own ideas which was great and of course since I had pregnancy brain at the time her input was beyond helpful . I don’t normally believe in party planners because I always have that “ I can do it myself “ attitude but when your actually sitting down and trying to get your thoughts together and u just have a brain fart, you become discouraged and then have that” I don’t even wanna have this event anymore “ you need someone like Dawn who keeps you stress free at all times . Again Dawn thank you so much for my beautiful baby shower . I will be contacting you back again for my wedding plans ( if i ever get married 😒😒)😂😂
