Jerry and his team were brought on board pretty much at the last minute and performed beautifully. The food was delicious; the layout was beautiful, and his staff was right there keeping the trays full and the tables neat. The bartender was proficient in pouring drinks. The bar service was another area where it was a last minute decision on our part. That Food Guy was amazing in fulfilling what we needed. They arrived promptly and immediately started set up for our event. And, they stayed until the venue manager signed off on the kitchen and event spaces. We would definitely look to That Food Guy for other event catering. He and his staff were helpful, professional, and especially interacted well with our attendees. I've been in fundraising and event planning for many years and can say Jerry Crane and his staff are up there with some of the better caterers I've used.

Julie was wonderful start to end. I'm an inexperienced event planner, but she was able to help me with all of my bar questions and more. My colleagues and I were so impressed with her attentiveness and cheeriness throughout our party. The prices were fair and the drinks were delicious! Julie was a joy to work with.

We picked June from the list of event planners recommended through Thumbtack. Being out of state, we needed June to work with my mother to determine her 90th birthday event wishes. June knew the questions to ask as well as the trade offs so my mother could make the best decisions for her. June also worked closely with me via phone and email on all the details. The event itself went perfectly. We could not have wished for a better event or a better event planner.

I highly recommend Rebecca's services. she is personal and professional and can pull of an elegant dinner party or a themed children's party, she even did our Christmas family reunion complete with crafts for the kids. She has great ideas for creative invitations and decorations, she planned activities ("photo booth", karaoke, games) and then she pulls it all together allowing me to spend time enjoy the event and my guests! I highly recommend her services.

Thank you so so so much for all of your help throughout this long planning process. You and your team on the day of the event were lifesavers and I appreciate how calm you were through the ups and downs. Thank you for your wisdom in event planning that you shared with us to make our event great. I will never forget it, and neither will anyone in our office! I really appreciate you enduring the cold, while you waited for the later staff to arrive. You had our back through the whole night and made the evening run so smoothly! Thank you so much from the start of our event in negotiating the contract, to cleaning up the ballroom and organizing our stuff.

As a picky eater and long time friend of the owner of Eats Creative Cuisine, I've been invited to many holiday events over the years for which he provided the food. From appetizers, to main courses and deserts; everything was simply excellent in terms of presentation, variety, flavor, quality, and freshness of ingredients. To each dish prepared, he brought his own individual style and devotion to perfection which added up to some of the best dining experiences I've had the good fortune to enjoy. Honestly, I can't think of any negatives. If you are serious about impressing your guests, do yourself a favor and book Eats Creative Cuisine for your next event. They will be amazed!

Scott DJ'd at our wedding about a week and a half ago & did an awesome job! He was able to integrate the songs we asked him to play with a nice variety of other music as well as the requests that our guests made. He honored our request to keep our special event very low key & family oriented. He is also very affordable. We would DEFINITELY recommend Scott to anyone looking for a DJ for any special event.

Cheryl has been a terrific addition to our Strollathon event. She has a great attitude and is very dependable. She's creative and her balloon creations are beautiful. I've been using her for 6 years now and look forward to many more. I love how I can describe my idea and she comes up with a design that exceeds my expectations. I would definitely recommend Bouquets & Balloons for any event where balloons are needed.

We worked with the awesome duo from Parties and Events NW for our wedding, and it was an absolute dream. Rebecca was our wedding decorator, and Erin was our day of coordinator, and our wedding could not have gone more smoothly without the help of these two amazing ladies. When I first spoke with Rebecca, she communicated every detail about our wedding vision that ensured that no area of planning would go unnoticed. She is kind, patient, and oh so creative! We visited our venue together, and Rebecca gave excellent tips and ideas that helped create an aesthetic look that perfectly matched the goals we had previously discussed. We also used their decorations, which was both cost and time effective that greatly reduced wedding planning stress. You will absolutely be satisfied with how your venue will look, as it will exceed your expectations! Erin was likewise a gem to work with as our wedding day coordinator. There is absolutely NOOO way that our wedding could have gone as smoothly without her amazing help. She kept us calm and relaxed, and was flexible to any changes that ensured our day went according to plan (and that we eat and stay hydrated!). In the weeks leading up to our wedding, Erin kindly talked us through all the final details (and spoke all our other vendors) that helped minimize stress and any concerns we had. She is incredibly detail oriented, and gave attention to all parts of our wedding that allowed my husband and I to focus on what mattered most-- marrying each other! Both ladies communicate incredibly well and in a timely manner that will leave you feeling assured that your wedding day will look and go just as you envision. We received so many compliments about how beautiful our venue looked, and how fun our wedding was- all thanks to the expertise of this duo. I highly recommend Parties and Events NW to help plan and decorate your event. Thank you, Rebecca and Erin, so much. We are forever grateful, and hope to work with you again in the future! xoxo, the Kochs

About

Northwest Facility Services began servicing commercial businesses and properties managers to cater to the various needs of the client. The entertainment department will become a separate entity in 2016 but until the logistics of securing the perfect team to carry out wishes that revolve around a special occasion, we can offer suggestions that allow your mind to be put at ease while we take each opportunity and transform it into an awe inspiring event you deserve. No budget too big or small. Our years of experience networking with local businesses, fellow colleagues and vendors has been exponential in building a strong rapport and trust that simply cannot be matched with. We realize that you would be taking a chance on a brand new department and therefore a new company(although the years of experience are not new it is important to us that you are happy with the decision you make to hire our department does not prompt uncertainty. Our goal is to gain your trust with the hope we may earn business through word of mouth. One thing you may take for granted is that our attentive staff will pay close attention to your needs no matter how elaborate the request we will never fail to give you and your guests the highest level of service and professionalism that decades of hands on experience wii ensure. To show our appreciation for trusting in our dedicated team while we get ready to announce our grand opening to the public we will be offering a substantial discount if you book your event in 2015 regardless of your event date. Some restrictions may apply. As the director of operations for this department, I will be the main point of contact.Id be happy to answer any questions or Alleviate your concerns. My personal experience planning parties, weddings and events..any size, theme or venue and many times last minute has given me the knowledge to anticipate, troubleshoot, reconcile and avoid potential disasterous scenarios. There is no problem too small that i would take for granted or too big that I cannot handle. Whatever you need, I will make it happen. I aquired this experience not only through my passion for entertaining but through my work as an on-air talent for a radio station in the Midwest where i took requests, promoted events, contest giveaways at the station on air and during live events. I was given an exciting opportunity to further my career when i was promoted to write and produce commercials for local businesses. As a professional voice over artist i was the voice behind anything from commercials to audibooks . My talent and passion for entertaining has instilled the natural ability to put guests of all ages at ease. Knowing your venue and age group i can anticipate ahead of time the music, activities, and level of appropriateness by adhering to your instructions. If You are looking for a D J our library consists of over 100,000 songs and growing .Of course licensed DJs have the ability to stream unlimited content if requests are desired. A stable wi fi connection would need to be available and since we realize that cannot always be a reliable source for music content it is important to have a large library and your personal playlist with must have songs will be discussed and added prior to your event. If a planner is desired then the initial meeting will be consist of questions, brainstorming and most of all fun. I say that because planning the event does not have to be stressful ..i know easier said than done ;) but moments leading up to the event can be some of the most memorable times. You can be as involved as much or little as you want. Our staff will be what you need. You really only have to show up if you desire. Besides the planning there is the "not as fun" part but that is where you need not worry. Financial, administrative and record keeping is vital to the overall success. Finding the right vendors while staying within your budget codes... planning your wedding or event involves so many aspects and unexpected variables the delicate mediation as the liason between vendors, the clients and guests on day of event requires someone that can handle situations with finesse. Unwanted guests that are invited out of obligation i have heard some stories from brides during planning about the obligatory guest list that includes exes, and the guest they bring along . To avoid risking insults or going off on a tangent i will end it there. My earlier point was what started out as anger or disappointment ended up in laughter. That is part of what i mean about fun planning. However my easy going nature and often times silly sense of humor is all it may take to break the ice with these guests. I listen and observe whether I am there in the shadows or playing your music there will be no awkward silences or guests unsure of what or where to go. Thinking outside the box is a talent that has come in handy. If you prefer something less traditional and more eccentric this applies to your event planning, activities to be included, and a plethora of innovative ideas . Your guests will remember your event. I am able to apply these talents as your planner ,mc, or dj. The main thing you need to know is that i am a devoted employee that holds my ethics in the highest regard. As the client you ultimately call all the shots as i am there only to execute accordingly. On the other hand that can be stressful during the event if the client does not have 100 percent trust in us. We have state of the art dj mixing boards, sound equipment, microphones, fog machines and lights. I can assist in making sure your schedule during the event is on time with announcements. Either way, you will not regret hiring us for planning your event from square one or if you are in need of only an MC or DJ, my easy to fill out questionairres will ensure the right music will be filling the room. As an added service at no charge and upon request have the ability to capture great candid video and stills throughout the evening . We can make it known or be stealthy whatever you wish. Although my personal favorite is the candit shots , especially when guests do not know there is a camera pointed at them. I will take a few short weeks to turn the footage into a professionally editied DVD where i guarantee laughter and tears. The time and effort involved in creating such a visual most find the modest fee to be a small price to pay for memories that cannot be recreated but it is not mandatory and is not intended to take the place of a photographer you may already have but rather compliments like the sprinkles on your sundae. . The bottom line is, I'm there to serve you. There is no need to stress on your big day. Our DJs do more than just play the music. Our planners go above and beyond to find best kept secrets for the perfect venue. I could keep talking because this is simply my passion. When you do what you love then everyone involved will reap the joyous benefits of a happy occasion. My goal is to ensure your event goes off without a hitch. Except the bride and groom of course ;) Dont hesitate. Please message me to take advantage of our 2015 pregrand opening specials. I look forward to making your special day one for the ages.
