My experience with Arden at first was great. She was very professional and couldn't wait for my daughter sweet sixteen. I Did not have the in home meeting because of our schedules. That was fine because from the conversations we had, I began to trust her. The day of the event, they was late getting to the venue to set up. To be honest I didn't care, just as long things was ready before the party started. When I came in it was nicely set up, but being overwhelmed with everything I didn't check to see if everything discussed was there. It's not until I got home and realize the amount of ballons that was included in the package I picked was not there. Also what really upsets me is the photos. The memories that my family is supposed to have, have yet to be received seven weeks later. Numerous phone calls unanswered. At least return calls. The most important day in my child's life thus far has been lost. This is highly unprofessional but she talks a good game. Don't be fooled. I originally rated the services three stars, but as I write this and realize how unsatisfactory their services ultimately became I'm giving them 2. Just disgustedAug 10, 2016Verified

Thank you for your review Christine! New Years Eve couldn't have been any better! Thank you for choosing Arden to provide Silver, Gold and Navy Blue decor at your Nautical Family Fund-Raiser. It's been a while since we've spent our New Year's Eve with any clients. Your family was worth it. Congratulations on a successful event. We look forward to you using Arden's services again in the near future =). Thank you for the review Christine! Happy New Year!

Thank you for the review Tye! You and your Aunt were a delight to work with! You knew what you wanted, that made it easier to deliver. Your Safari consisted of a lot of animal print and palm trees. Glaming it up with some drape and crystal Eiffel tower vases were a must. We look forward to Christenings and Birthdays with you and your family. Our staffed Photographer had a blast working with you and your family during your unforgettable Safari Baby Shower. Congratulations to you and Roberto on your bundle of joy. Again, thank you for the amazing review Tye!
I have to admit that it was a bumpy ride at first. I was not the easiest person to deal with and I was just having a hard time seeing the overall concept. However, Lauren and her team are total professionals and masters at their craft. They were able to successfully pull this image out of my head and execute the perfect event for me. Arden Occasion Creators will be a staple part in all of my major family events.Dec 8, 2015VerifiedLauren W.'s reply
