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!!
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!
For my daughter's carnival-themed birthday party, we had face painting and a popcorn machine. The entertainers from My Best Party were prompt, professional, wonderful with kids, and super talented!
THEY ARE THE BEST. I hired Giggles and Wiggles Face Painting for my graduation event. This was a college graduation for my Master's degree (I am 24) and I wanted a fun factor that would really enhance the celebration. I was worried at first that this would be a juvenile element but boy, was I wrong! There were about 45 adults and only one 4 year old, but this was a hit! Johanna and Sheila worked with me the entire time with planning the event. They were very attentive and VERY PROFESSIONAL. I had to reschedule my event and they were EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE in assisting me. They were punctual and brought a poster with ideas for BOTH children and adults and they even included balloon artistry (which to my surprise the adults REALLY enjoyed)! Johanna is an wonderful person. Not only is she an incredible artist but she has an AMAZING personality. I felt like she was family. She is incredibly outgoing and she interacts with everyone and gets everyone involved. Furthermore, she is extremely passionate about her work and even recommended a design and hair paint that worked so well with me! She is so sweet. She even let my brother who has autism wear her clown hat the whole night. Needless to say, she's a very kindhearted person. The balloon artist is also incredibly talented with his art. I was really impressed at how he got the adults to enjoy and play with the balloons. At one point, everyone was sword fighting and walking imaginary dogs, and these were are adults in their 40's and 50's! Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better night and I really owe it to the face painters because they are who tied the party together and really made it a blast. They went above and beyond with their work! I definitely recommend their services and I will be using them again in the future for a glow in the dark Halloween party! (Also, the paint is of high quality. I was sweating and it stayed on nicely and when it was time to take it off, it comes off easily with soap and water, so no scrubbing.)
DeCiccos did a great job. Everything was exactly as we planned. The servers were professional and efficient. They were on top of set up, serving and clean up. Food was delicious.
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.
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!
Anna's performed for at my daughters Moroccan themed 13th birthday. It was a pleasure having her, she was very professional and did an excellent job. I will definitely recommend her services in the future.
Regina and her team were amazing! She catered a Bridal shower for me along with 5 other bridesmaid and the brides mom so you can imagine the amount of questions and wants we had! Regina was so patient and quick to respond. The day of was a gloomy day in NY with a race going on in the area but they delivered our vision beautifully!! And everyone loved the food and decor!! I would recommend 3rs to anyone looking for catering and party planning!!
On March 18th Knights of Columbus in Edison NJ we had our sons 1st birthday party . We went with Designs by Deb. We absolutely Loved the centerpieces, and the ballon arch , matching linens and napkins. we had a mickey mouse theme. Deb and her team did an awesome job everyone talked about it and complimented on how beautiful it was. Thanks Deb for making my sons birthday party so great.
The Bella Couture Team was outstanding. They took care of every little detail including things we would not have thought of . They absolutely were the reason our special day was so special. They were responsive to every need and concern and were constantly putting our minds at ease when the panic started to set in. Every time we had a concern they immediately addressed it and put our minds at ease. We could not have asked for a better planner for our wedding. They are truly amazing!
Eleni was a pleasure to work with and is very thorough with her job. She planned my child's farm themed birthday party. She not only found the perfect venue, but kept me in the loop along the way. The decorations were great and the creative candy buffet she put together was outstanding! I would definitely hire her again! I can't tell you how many compliments I received from our guests that day. I highly recommend her! She truly is a person of many talents!
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.
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!
I really enjoyed working with Mirna and her team for my husband’s Gatsby themed birthday party. She was absolutely amazing. All my event worries disappeared as soon as I met her. She made out time to check out the event space and map out a plan. She is very responsive, flexible and creative. She suggested some pretty awesome ideas within budget and all the guests loved the decor. She also connected me with other vendors within her network who she worked with for the birthday cake ,dessert table and other rentals. I hired Mirna as an event decorator but ended up getting so much more. She helped with planning and coordinating the event and generally keeping me sane. Thank you, Mirna! I will hire you over and over again.
Debra work was amazing! Her work was very colorful , creative and beautiful . She definitely brought my daughter "Troll" themed party to life !!! We loved her work.
The luckiest part to have a good wedding is to find the right wedding planner. Ani is the one that you cannot miss. A good friend can try to assist you for the day and the plan, but sometimes more help or ideas you get and the busier you get because most people do not know about a wedding. Ani is the one who will turn to be your best friend and think in your shoes, at the same time, she knows what she’s doing and making everything goes as smooth as you can imagine. Ani is smart, sharp, calm, warm-hearted, and sweet. She gives you the peaceful mind that nothing will go wrong because she’s around to help you all she can. She gets things done and is always on top of her game. She’s punctuate and professional. She’s also creative to make your wedding unique and special. She’s flexible for anything you ask for the wedding. So many things could go out of expectations. And there you have Ani who comes the earliest and leaves the latest. She’s willing to listen and cover all the holes. She’s a great communicator. No matter the priest, or a huge wedding party or vendors, girls or kids, everyone loves Ani. She’s very patient. You just love her and thank God she’s there for you. She cheers for you and feels every moment of your big day. If you picture your wedding like all the movies full of romance and fairy tales, then you must have a wedding planner, you must have Ani. Because the real wedding is like a war, you have many things to do but you cannot do on your own, you don’t get enough sleep, you cannot have enough time talk to everyone you want to, there is so much crisis you have to deal with, you plan so well but everything still goes wrong. People could easier get frustrated and even a nervous breakdown for the mixed emotions of the wedding day, happiness, sadness, or you are touched, or you miss the people who cannot be there to share. The wedding day is hard, as beautiful as it could be, but I learned the lesson from my engagement party that I will have a wedding planner for my party. A year and half of preparation for this big day, it has to be perfect. Then, I have Ani and I am so thrilled I found her, she contributed so much to my perfect day. I walked into the reception and everything was exactly I wanted. She just knows, without too much explanation, without the back and forth. If you want to have regrets and more enjoyment for the biggest day of your life, then contact Ani. Her value is priceless.
This Past weekend I planned my very first party for my Daughters Baby Shower!

OMG ABSOLUTELY beautiful!! everything I wanted was executed and so much more... I couldn't pick a better party planner her prices were more than reasonable ,the best I've seen... I couldn't be more pleased with her service thank u Vanissa so much!!!
I love her. She's the best. Such a sweet person. Loved her work. My babyshower was outstanding. Couldn't have asked for a better party planner.
I don't usually write reviews, but I feel I have to share with the world my wonderful experience with Andreea. I had my daughter's first birthday and baptism party this Saturday, April 22nd. I was short on time and overwhelmed with the arrangements and I couldn't find a decorator when Andreea replied to my message on thumbtack. It was a blessing dealing with her. The very next day we met to discuss how she would decorate the restaurant. I have never organized a party before,and I was short on time, so I placed all my faith in Andreea. I have to say this woman went out of her way to make it perfect, and honestly exceeded my expectations. She drove to my house to pick up the favors; she managed to make the most beautiful balloon angel arrangement; she added custom chocolates to my favors; she showed up early at the restaurant and decorated it while me and my guests were at the church, then came to clean up at the end of the party; she picked up my daughter's cake and incorporated it in her design; she made the cutest banners with my daughter's name...Basically she took care of everything, taking away all the stress of my shoulders. Her easy going personality and professionalism impressed me and my guests. The venue looked amazing and festive when we all showed up at the restaurant. All the balloons were in place, all the tables beautifully dressed...it was just perfect. All my friends kept asking me who did the decor, and I was proud to recomend Andreea. I feel she did an amazing job for the small fee she charged. She is always in touch, always on time...and considered all my requests. I could not be happier. My baby girl had a blast. Andreea is definitely my go to decorator for all my upcoming parties, she is just THE BEST. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANDREEA if you want your venue to look perfect and have not a thing to worry about.I will be sharing pictures of the venue when I get back the pictures from my photographer, since I didn't take many pictures myself.
