Hired a server to help with a small private holiday dinner party at our home. She was very responsive in setting up the details and made the process very easy.
April with ALD Events is amazing. I hired April to do my daughter's Bat Mitzvah on June 10, 2017. As with any event a person puts on I was truly worried about how everything would turn out. To my surprise everything was amazing. When I arrived at the venue for my daughter's party April was there with a smile on her face and seemed to have everything under control With the short amount of time she had to set everything up, she got it all done. Everything looked amazing. The tables looked so pretty with the table clothes, napkins, chair covers and sashes. I wish I had a picture to post how amazing everything looked. I would highly recommend April, her services were of great quality and her prices amazing. I want to Thank You April for helping make my daughter's party look beautiful.
My family and I truly enjoyed working with Denean's Party By Design! Denean and her team are extremely passionate about designing and their passion is what makes them so great because they love what they do. They take your simple visions and turn them into elegant and beautiful party themes. Denean and her team answered all my emails in a timely fashion, they were extremely helpful when our caterer fell through at the last minute and helped us with plates, utensils, and linens. I honestly can't say enough to describe how pleased and happy I am that I had the opportunity to work with Denean's Party By Design, and I highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again one day in the future.
I am a returning client. I was greatly happy and appreciative of Mrs Angie Stancil work because of the great service she provided previously for me. I need help with making sure my 1 year old had an awesome first birthday party. Mrs Angie came to mind. With her experience, patience, attention to detail, and thoughtfulness Mrs Angie Stancil helped me achieve my dream from finding the party location, decorating the event space, the planning and execution of activities during the event, and the clearing of the event space. Everything Mrs Angie did for us went very smoothly. Mrs Angie was wonderful. It was stress free and effortless. I was extremely happy. My child was very happy. Our guest were very happy and very surprised at how it all came together. Thank you so much Mrs Angie. My son will be a 2 year old soon. Would you be available for the next birthday party please?
The Team was very patient and accommodating. I hosted a 75th Birthday party and the Team worked well with the bartender and other staff ensuring elderly guests received food and beverages. The were professional and courteous.
Mary is kind, personable and good at what she does. She is a wonderful day of coordinator-- our bridal party, family and friends loved her. In addition to being great at her job she made welcome bags for my hotel guests free of charge. She was an absolute delight to work with!
Having Michele and Laura work our annual Holiday Open House was a real game changer in how I will entertain from now on! I am a veteran party giver and love to entertain, but I need good, hands-on professional, responsible help during the event so I can relax and enjoy the party. With "We Plan- You Party" I was able to do the cooking and much of the planning for our Annual Holiday Party, then turn the aprons over to Michele and Laura with complete confidence. Since I enjoy the cooking and planning but hate the clean-up, they were perfect. Michele and Laura came in and very efficiently set up the food and bar areas, greeted guests, kept the place picked up, dishes and glasses washed, and replenished food and beverages during the event. As things wound down and after, they put leftovers away, packaging them for the freezer and fridge, cleaned everything up, party glassware was clean and boxed up for storage, plates and platters washed, dried and stacked for storage,they put table linens in my laundry room, even blew out the candles...all while I put my feet up and had a nightcap and plate of food with Hubby and the last few hangers-on. When they left the kitchen was cleaner than they found it. And , all the while, they were personable,relaxed, professional and sweet! Aaaaahhhh. Perfect party! Hiring them will be a Holiday tradition from now on, a gift I give myself! I Highly recommend MichelePalmer and We Plan-YOu Party. Thank you so much!!!
Wonderful decorations. The decor was and continues to be the best part of the party Thanks Erin you brought my dreams to life.
Chef Giovanni is not only a creative and dynamic chef, he is also a warm person. I was so relieved to welcome Chef Giovanni at my house for my dinner party, he put me at ease with his calm demeanor and ideas. We had been exchanging emails and texts the week prior to the event, he was responsive unlike other chefs I had worked with in the past. Chef had also been tasked to provide a meal for a pescatarian, gluten-free guest, and a no shell fish guest. When Chef arrived, he took several inexpensive bouquets from Trader Joes and transformed them into stunning centerpieces for my dining room table. The entire dining room morphed into a chic bistro that looked like it should have been in the south of France as opposed to Maryland. Once the first guest arrived, the smell of bouillabaisse was permeating the house and the guests were excited by the aroma but also the drinks and amuse-boushe Chef had prepared for their arrival. The amuse-boushe was phyllo dough stuffed with spiced lamb. It was crunchy on the outside with flavors of raisins, spices and lamb on the inside. This was an exceptional way to start our culinary journey! Once the guests were seated and wine was poured, the appetizer was served. It was not my favorite combination of flavors but others seem to enjoy it. Next the main course, the bouillabaisse was served. I was stunned to see how beautiful the bouillabaisse was prepared; with cilantro and lime on top and was chocked full of lobster, crab, scallops, fish. My guests were asking him for the recipe for the rue and the steps to making such an intriguing meal. The dessert was also nicely done, my guests really enjoyed the presentation and the taste. Chef Giovanni talked about what he made, helped serve the guests. He also helped pour the wine and kept the night flowing. Chef Giovanni also left me with a spotless kitchen which was the perfect end to a perfect night. I am a customer very happy with a first-time experiment with inviting a chef into my home. I think it is a great way to entertain without breaking the bank. When you consider how much time and preparation that goes into an evening like this, I feel that Chef Giovanni provides quality ingredients and exceptional service for a reasonable rate.
We are so grateful that we got to work with Mitch from A Memorable Party. He was the best planner that I could ask for. The wedding was beautiful, and all because of him. He always answered my questions when I had them even late at night. He was very accessible, and always put me at ease. He dealt with all the vendors and all I had to do was show up and rock my dress! Everything from the cake, the flowers, the venue and decorations, to the dj and the ceremony was on point and most importantly, exactly how I imagined. I can’t even count the number of complements we got on the decorations. I would recommend Mitch 100 times over!
I had the pleasure of working with Croix Marketing and their entire team for a bridal party.. They did an EXCEPTIONAL job every detail requested was executed. The Bridal Shower was simply amazing. They took their time to talk with me, took all my ideas and transformed it into a beautiful party for everyone to enjoy. They truly are talented and aim to please the customer!
This was my first time hiring a party planner for my son who is 7. Ms keisha was very sweet and understanding and patient and my sons party turned out fabulous and Affinity One events really made his party magical....and the decor was very creative and just what I wanted and very reasonable my son was sooooo siked when he seen his Superman theme and all the games but his favorite was the cool custom made CANDY BAR (a table full of delicious candy) I will definitely hire Affinity One Events again for my next party....
Mommy A La Carte is absolutely amazing. She comes highly recommended as it relates to the planning and preparation for busy Moms. Shes been a godsend to work with. Ms. Smith ensures that her clients are well taken care of. Her attention to detail is out of this world and her follow-through is one that you can trust and rely on. If you want to plan a childrens party, baby shower or even birthday party Id highly recommend that you go with Mommy A La Carte because you wont be disappointed. Trust me on this!
I loved everything, that this young lady had at my event... She was on time, and every looked and was very tasteful... If you are a private person, and don't like a lot of people at your home, but love giving party's then, she is the girl to call.. Thank You Tamaka T.
From the first day I met Kisha and explained to her my plan for my daughter's Sweet 16 Party, she was sensitive to all my needs and budget. She came up with my theme and took us to the most beautiful venues. She also let us choose what we liked and didn't force any opinions on us but provided great advice. We walked into the reception hall the day of the party and it was magical, beautiful and classy. The party turned out to be so much fun for my daughter and her guests. Anyone would be fortunate to have Kisha as a consultant. I hope to work with her in the future and truly recommend her!
I did not know where to start to help plan a wedding for my sister. I contacted Sahar and she was amazing from the beginning to the end she was putting my sisters vision together listening to what exactly what my sister wanted. All the guest kept commenting on how beautiful the decorations were and how well organized the wedding was. She helped plan her bachorlette party as well. We would text her call her meet up to talk about plans and colors and decor it was very enjoyable working with her side by side! I would definitely come back to her when we need any other family event planned !
I wanted a culinary experience to my sunday wedding brunch. The brunch was from 9:30 until 2:00 sunday. Chef Jackson and and his team came in put together some wonderful flavorable dishes. My guest loved the food and the culinary experience. Chief Jackson was very nice and easy to work with, Open to try new ideas and ways of home style events. I think the event was succesful thanks to him. I would recommend him to anyone perhaps future parties we have I would consider having him come back create more flavors. I learned alot too. I would perfer some of the food prepared before the quest arrived because the guest come ready to chow down. I would place names of dishes near the food. Narrow down how many dishes to be served. I think we might have given too much options to eat. Not that its a negative. I just think the culinary experience should be knowing what your eating more hands on with the chef. Instead my guest just ate and ate and ate. I wanted them to savor and be curious about what they were eating. Want to have similar experience at their home. So my purpose for having it was too change the way people ate at home party. So I will work harder on how its presented to the guest. Chef worked hard to get the food out but I wanted him to be able to interact with the guest more. Question the guest about what they like about the dish. etc. Yes Chef Jackson did an excellent job. I give him four thumbs up. Love the food!
Hosted a surprise party at the house for a group of about 50. The team was very flexible and accommodating to help make this a success. We planned for 40 but the team didn't miss a beat when a few more showed up. They set up outside to cater this event and provided servers and a bartender! We got hit by a rainstorm and they handled transferring everything indoors and made due with a very small indoor space. Great experience. Team was very professional and accommodating to extra people, bad weather, and small indoor space!
Michelle Farmer helped me plan and coordinate my wedding rehearsal dinner at my home in September 2015. I did not want a typical sit down dinner more like a casual buffet. Michele helped me research costs for food and decorations to stay within my budget. The day of the party she was on site to set everything up and run the party for me. All I had to do was greet guests, relax and enjoy. She's a hard-working lady! I would definitely book her again for an event!
Chef Terry did a cooking demo at my birthday party and was a huge hit! He was as entertaining as he was skillful and knowledgeable. Everyone had a great time! He taught us how to make inventive (and tasty!) appetizers, desserts, and even a few specialty cocktails! I can't wait to use him again!
