We had our son's first birthday party yesterday and we're very happy we hired Dennis. He made balloons of different shapes and forms for the kids while his wife painted their faces. Everyone was so excited that even some adults got their faces painted. It was overall a great experience. They were on time and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend Magical Faces to any parent planning a party for kids!!
I had last minute party, and My Best Party did everything possible to go. the two entertainers were so friendly and did the face painting with a lot of patience. I thought they were running out of time, but they Finnish all of the kids regardless the time. Mickey and Minnie were great!!! they look real! all of the songs were fantastics! my twins loved them so much! and the price was unbeatable, Thank you my best party for making my kids birthday party so wonderful
Ellen was lovely to work with and very attentive and communicative which is essential when planning a party. My party was a small holiday one but the hors d'oeuvres she made were fabulous and the leftovers made wonderful work lunches :). Thanks Ellen!
I am a little behind on the review my name is Rosa and i contacted Sheila and Joanna for my daughter Sophia Birthday in Belleville on july 11, 2015. It was my first time hiring a clown but i was really pleased and satisfied with such an amazing show and the face painting was amazing the best i have ever seen and really stayed on for a long time and the balloon sclupting was great and the Hora Loca OMG AMAZING SO UPBEAT. The way that they interacted with the children was very comfortable and made all the kids and their parents participate today i have been asked for their phone numbers and soon my family and friends will contact them because their service was more than i expected.

I would definitely would not hesitate to contact them soon because i loved them and would hire them again. thanks for making me feel comfortable to talk to you and making my daughter birthday such a success and memorable i will never forget her birthday.
We recently had a surprise birthday party for our daughter in the Armonk DeCiccos on the mezzanine level. It was fantastic. Francesca, who organized the catering, made it very easy for us to plan the party. The staff was also very professional and took care of any of our needs. The evening was a great success due to them. They even packed up the excess food for us to take home. The food was delicious and our guests commented on how tasty it was. We are glad we chose DeCiccos as our venue.
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.
We could not have asked for a better experience. Tyler was extremely attentive prior to our event and fielded my (many) questions with diligence and patience. The day of event, he went above and beyond all expectations. He went so far as to bring little signs, candles and flower petals to make the dessert arrangement more beautiful than I could have imagined. Him and Josh, the second bartender, were incredibly personable with our guests and made sure everyone was happy and taken care of. HighLife takes absolutely all of the stress out of planning a big party at a very reasonable price. I would recommend Tyler and his team to anyone.
Anna did an Amazing job for my daughters party the adults and children loved her performance
Peter and his team did a fantastic job. He responded quickly to all of my messages and accommodated every request I made. He proposed a great menu and took my suggestions for additions, and was very attentive to all the details. The day of the event was a breeze and the food was delicious and looked dry impressive. I would strongly encourage anyone who is planning a cocktail party style event of any size to hire him and his team. You'll be delighted!
As someone who is obsessed with food, I know good from mediocre, and mediocre from just plain bad. I am also someone has ZERO capacity to cook for more than, like, 1-2 people at a time tops 4 .but I happen to have a big extended family and group of friends that LOVES to entertain and BE entertained. So, on one hand its great because it gives me LOTS of excuses to eat wonderful food to my hearts content (yay cheat days!); on the other hand, I have panic attacks just THINKING about preparing for one of these parties in terms of planning menus, figuring out what and how much stuff to make, shopping, prepping, cooking, cleaning, etc My heart is actually starting to race right now just WRITING about it!!! However, about 7 years ago, I found my secret weapon. I was at an event my old job was hosting, and the food was AMAZING and so creative and delicious. The theme was gourmet comfort food, and Ill never forget it because I LOVE comfort food, and the dishes they served at the event were such cool, delicious, creative versions of some of my favorites. I was in the restroom at some point fixing my make-up, and a Chef Alana happened to be at the sink as well. We just started chatting and I liked her instantly. She has such a great energy that you will notice right away when you meet her (and you SHOULD meet her!) As it happened, I was in the beginning stages of planning a holiday party with my sister, and we were tying to decide what to do about food. When I mentioned this to Chef Alana, she immediately threw like 3 great potential ideas at me!!! We exchanged info and I contacted her the next day. We talked about the details of the party, the types of guests they would be there, particular tastes, requirements, special dietary needs of some of the guests, etc. and she said she'd whip up a proposal and get back to me. Two days later she sent me an EPIC menu, layout of how she and her staff would work, breakdown of her price and some great tips as well! I hired her the second I was finished reading....and the rest is history. Chef Alana and her staff have done every single event I have ever needed catered,since then, as well as many for people I have referred her to. On a totally opposite note from being an obsessed foodie and big entertainer/entertainee, I happen to also be a former figure competitor (a category in the bodybuilding world). Now, while I dont seek out the healthiest dishes when planning a party or family gathering, Chef Alanas food almost always can be considered healthy in that she only uses the freshest ingredients and every single element of every dish is homemade. She skimps on NOTHING in terms of quality, freshness and authenticity. But I digress. The real point I was about to make is that for the two years I was competing, I hired Chef Alana to do all of my meal prepping and delivery. We thoroughly discussed my needs and preferences which were VERY picky and obnoxious and she NAILED it every single week. The amount of time and frustration she saved me during that already-stressful time was PRICELESS. I refer all of my friends and family to Chef Alana and her Most Wanted Chef staff any chance I get. She is that good. I actually hate making recommendations to people on services and products, etc. in case things dont go well and then Id feel responsible. In all honesty, though, I NEVER hesitate to recommend Chef Alana/Most Wanted Chef, and I will continue to tout her services and UTILIZE her services every chance I get. Do yourself a favor if you have ANY need for a caterer or a private chef - reach out to Chef Alana, be prepared to be blown away, and see why she really is the Most Wanted Chef.
Cynthia is a thorough professional and kind hearted. At my son's birthday, she went above and beyond to make sure all the kids at the party had a fabulous time with face painting and balloons. She was an instant favorite with the kids. She will definitely be part of my next party.
Highly Recommend. Awesome Birthday Party! Platter Matters catered my Dad's Birthday Party last year in October (60 people). Bernadett and Ivett were so easy to work with and their food was delicious! Their staff was extremely professional and very organized. They made the day stress free and spectacular! I would highly recommend Platter Matters for any event!
Eleni was such a pleasure to work with when planning my daughter's birthday party. I started planning last minute and she made sure that every detail was perfect, while keeping my vision in mind. I was so happy with how everything turned out that I used her another two times and will definitely continue to do so in the future! Everything Eleni made for my dessert table was so tasty and delicious and the display looked amazing! The themed treats were adorable and matched my theme perfectly. The best part is that she uses all natural and organic ingredients!
MIZDI Planned my 30th birthday party for me. From the people she invited, to the decorations, to the cake, everything was exceptional and I really enjoyed myself.
Linda was fantastic!! I called her with just a week to go for the event, she quickly understood what I needed and created beautiful name places that she got to me via 2 day UPS. The cards and calligraphy were beautiful, several guests commented on them and one asked me for Linda's contact information because she just organized a party and had no one to make her cards (ended up writing them herself). Linda saved the day for us and I will definitely work with her in the future.
Brittney has been an invaluable resource and advisor during our entire planning process. We're sort of hands-off when it comes to our wedding and our focus is more on nailing down the major elements of a good party so we can enjoy ourselves and not get bogged down with details. Brittney totally gets that. She is a fantastic listener and a true professional. She has checked in with tips to keep us on track, offered recommendations for fabulous vendors from her arsenal of partners, and is just generally a fabulous, thoughtful person. We trust her entirely and feel so much more at ease (and confident we'll enjoy our wedding day!) knowing she will be directing the flow of events. We highly recommend her to anyone who is considering wedding day guidance -- from basic service the day of to full blown planning. Brittney is amazing!
Agnes delivered beyond expectations for our beauty and the beast sweet 16 Party . She even handles some last minute changes very gracefully . We couldn’t be more happy with her . Everything was flawless and guests loved every detail she put into it . I highly recommend her
Bella Couture helped plan my wedding and provided alot of creative ideas to make the day special. They are very well organized and dealt with all my vendors. I was always secure in knowing that all the details would be taken of. The day of the wedding we were able to really enjoy the party knowing that they were present and watching the entire flow of the event. Our guests said the wedding was "perfect."
Sheetal is by far the most professional event planner I have ever worked with. She is extremely organized, has impeccable taste and always comes up with unique ideas for any event. I had personally seen her work at corporate event and at kids birthday party. It was amazing to see how she had meticulously worked for two entirely different types of event with same quality standards and enthusiasm. She definitely has a style!!! My guest were awestruck when they saw the decor, food and all the little details at my kid's party. I wouldn't choose any other planner for any of my events.
Amazing party decor!
