Marla Mase is an extraordinary event planner, creator of party magic and Producer! After having been in the business for a couple of decades and working in so many different venues, types of events, parties and performances, Marla has an incredible team. She’s amassed a phenomenal, devoted group of performers, artists, designers & caterers whom she employs at all her parties, depending on need and skill set. I have worked with Marla on several creative projects and events and had a ball working with her. She is the ultimate professional, but always works in a relaxed, easygoing fashion. She is open to discussion and will always brainstorm to bring ones vision to life. Recently she produced a Rock show and party in Tribeca for me that hosted an amazing band, along with several international actors, dancers and singers. Marla hired one of her designers to transform the old Tribeca firehouse into an underworld of sea creatures and magic. It was spectacular. The food was a beautifully abundant array of hors devours and beverages. Hailing from Tribeca and having worked in the New York area for so many years for hundreds of high-end clients, Marla is truly cutting edge. She has an eye for the unique, and is able to adapt to the vision of her client. Marla really gets the job done. She’s personable and lovely and I always feel I’m in good hands with her at the helm.Mar 4, 2018
Wedding and Event Decorating
Marla and her team were wonderful. They came up with very beautiful and creative ideas to decorate our holiday party. The party was held in an Egyptian restaurant and we wanted to give it a more wintery feel, which wasn't easy, but they did an amazing job.Dec 9, 2019Verified
Very creative ideas !Oct 31, 2019Verified
I use partySWANK for all my events-both Personal & Professional. Their work is first rate. I recommend them highly!Feb 22, 2018
The owner Marla is very creative and hardworking. She thinks of everything down to the last detail to make party perfect. She gets back immediately on texts and questions. She has great taste so she can pick out things but also allows you to do as much picking and ideas as you want. She does not pressure either, very laid back. The party remains as much yours as you want. She did both my sons Bar-Mitzvah and a few years later my husband 50th Birthday party. (with celebrity guests Star Trek & enterprise cake) , She was able to coordinate Glatt-kosher meals for select guests and perfect timing for the entire night. I plan to use Party Swank in the future.Apr 8, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our full-service event planning fee starts at $5000. Full-service means we are there for our clients from the very beginning (venue selection) to the very end (day of event managing) and everything in between (entertainment, catering, decor, photography, favors, etc). Our minimum decor/design fee starts at $5000. Pricing varies depending on event.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Full-Service Event Planning Process: First, we discuss the event on the phone to learn about what the client's overall vision is. Second, we meet with the client at venue (if venue is already selected). If venue is not selected, we start referring venues to our client based on our initial discussion (how many guests, occasion, the look and feel that the client wants from the venue, budget), we meet with client at suggested venues. Once the venue is booked, we start planning the rest of the event based on our discussions with the client -- decorations, florists, catering, entertainment, cakes, dessert tables, favors, day of event staffing, photo booths, photographers, live music, DJ - a lot of back and forth goes on during this period. Once the party date has arrived we are there to manage the entire event, making sure that everything goes according to plan. We are the liaison between the client and all the vendors so the client can relax, enjoy their event and be confident that all the details are taken care of. We also offer partial event planning services -- sometimes we just book entertainment for our clients; sometimes we are hired for day of event coordination, other times we do decor/design - whatever services our client needs, we are here to make it happen.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We have planned over 3000 events these past 27 years. Marla Mase, the founder also produces theatre and live music concerts. She is also a writer/performer and is a partner at True Groove Productions, NYC's fastest rising record label and Theatrical Production Company.
