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.
I had been searching for months for a caterer for my Dads 50th surprise birthday that would fit within my budget. I did tastings and wanted to make sure everything was absolutely perfect (Yes I am one of those annoying perfectionists). I saw the Its Party Time Van driving through Sherwood and decided to give them a call. Quite honestly I was ready to give up and order party platters from Costco and call it good. Viki was very flexible with my work schedule and met me late in the evening at Sharis for a tasting THE NEXT DAY. The food was delicious but not exactly what I was looking for. She made a lot of suggestions and showed me pictures and was even willing to do a 2nd tasting the following day and my sister and myself.. (no charge of course). The birthday party was coming up and we were on a complete time crunch and Viki and her team were able to pull everything together so quickly, she even threw in some extra coleslaw!! Her prices were definitely reasonable and she was so flexible. Viki wasnt at the event but her team made everything so easy and was even willing to help out with everything else! I will use her for anything I have coming up-She is catering my daughters wedding next August!
My daughter who turned 4 was amazed to have the snow queen face painting at her party! The dress was beautiful and the queen was great at interacting with the kids. I recommend Dragon Theater for your next event!
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.
Trevor is AWESOME!! He was great to work with and my guests loved him! He is definitely the one you want to book through!! He was great at choosing music for my guests as well as making announcements. If I ever need a DJ for an event, he would be the one I go to!!
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.
Nicole is knowledgable, proactive, extremely creative, no pressure, open to feedback and opinions, and provides options. Nicole's wonderful personality makes any planning and the event a joy!
There is a time in a woman's life that is the most important day she will experience. A time that she daydreams of her entire life. On September 6th, 2015 Amanda and I both had the most important day of our lives! But every bride knows that it is a whirlwind to actually get to the day of the wedding with all the planning, collecting, and projects it takes to actually pull of the day. Six months before our wedding a perfect gem came into our lives offering to be a day of coordinator for our wedding for learning experience to build her business in the best way possible. Of course we jumped on the offer and met with Vanessa the next week. We had an instant connection with Vanessa and right away she became family to us. She expressed to us right away what she was going to do for us and we all started to plan that night. The first thing that caught my attention was her immediate organizational skills. She wrote down everything we talked about right away and threw in amazing ideas. When Vanessa left that first night Amanda and I felt like we struck gold! As weeks went on Vanessa kept in close contact with us, always asking how we were doing and asking what she could do to help us. Vanessa came out to our house to work on projects with us, to continue planning, and to figure out our venue prospects. When we finally decided on a venue Vanessa was right by our side meeting with the venue managers and coordinators. She asked every question that we didn't think of and she made sure that we got the best deal possible. As the day came closer Vanessa was a constant support system for us and kept us cool and collected as the stress of a wedding came closer. As most wedding do we had a few hiccups with our venue and Vanessa took charge and fixed all the little speed bumps that came our way. At our rehearsal Vanessa came ready to shine with her impeccable organization. She knew what she was doing and kept explaining how the day was going to go to our wedding party. When we left that day we knew exactly how to walk down the isle, where to stand, how to walk out, and had a plan how the rest of the wedding would go. Needless to say we all felt comfortable and ready for the actual event. Of course when Amanda and I went to bed that night we were so ready for our beautiful outdoor dreamy wedding. When we woke up the next morning it was down pouring. As a bride panic set in knowing that our outdoor wedding could become disastrous. Not even a minute later I got a call from Vanessa calming my nervous and telling me she has a plan. Instantly I knew the day was would be perfect. When my side of the bridal party and I showed up to help set up there were beautiful white tents up to cover our guests and us during the wedding. Vanessa made magic happen to make sure our day went perfect. She directed everyone what still needed to be done and we got all decorations and tables set up in a fashionable time! When we all went to take pictures Vanessa stayed and continued to make our venue perfect. When we arrived it was like a fairytale, she put her beautiful touches on everything. When the wedding started she gathered the wedding party and since it was raining we had to change quickly where we were going to stand and Vanessa took charge and quickly made a decision for us. As we started walking down the isle the rain stopped and the sun came out and all I could do is smile because I knew Vanessa must have pulled some strings with the rain Gods because only she could pull off something like that! Needless to say the wedding went perfectly and the reason I know that is because Vanessa was running her butt off to make sure very thing was perfect and even if there problems she didn't let us know about any of them she just took care of it herself. As the night came to an end and we were getting ready for our exit and Vanessa was still in great spirits and ready to make sure the last few minutes were perfect!! As we got into our truck and drove away we noticed that Vanessa had placed all of our gifts and cards into our truck for us to enjoy that night! Vanessa stayed and cleaned the venue and that night dropped off all of our decor and supplies to our house so that we didn't have to worry about anything. Our over all experience with Vanessa was beyond amazing. Not only was she our day of wedding coordinator but now she is and will forever be Auntie Vanessa to our sweet babies!! If you are looking for a dedicated, organized, passionate, loving, creative day of coordinator for your wedding Vanessa Humphrey is the woman for you. She will blow your exceptions out of this world! Vanessa thank you so much for your support and love for weddings because we wouldn't have been able to do half of what we did without you!! We love you to the moon and back!!
Nectar is one of the best evening length dance events I've experienced. The music is always unique and stellar in quality. The variety of people drawn to the event keeps both the dancing and socializing fresh and interesting. The environment and the tea are exquisite for creating a truly magical and enjoyable night.
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.
Nataliya is very detail oriented and gives you many many options to choose from when it comes to venues/themes/decorations. She is always easy to approach and genuinely kind. She can also be very logical and explain things to you if you are uncertain about your choices. Best of all, you can always expect a speedy response and professionalism from her. She will always try to find you the best quality within your budget. I've known her in both friend and professional settings for 7 yrs. I highly recommend her as your choice of an event planner!
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
Vanessa was a wonderful event planner for my daughters first birthday! It wasn't a typical birthday it was one that any girl dreams of! It was a princess ball! It was so entertaining for the kids and the adults!! The invitations she created were so amazing and could never buy any that came close to hers! I will definetly be using her for my next event!
I hired Brook with Current Productions to DJ my brothers wedding a couple of years ago. He did an outstanding job getting people on the dance floor to shake their grove thing. Overall, he is professional, reliable and most of all just a great individual.

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.
