Mimi is the best! I was able to get both face painting and balloon services within my budget for a surprise 70's-themed 30th birthday party! She was collaborative and communicative in working through details leading up to the event. Mimi was prompt and did an amazing job assembling things on site. The guests LOVED the face paint, I've been asked repeatedly for her contact info! Thanks, Mimi!
We really enjoyed working with Chef Kevin. He developed a perfect (and very reasonable) menu for my motherâs 90th birthday party (a late afternoon reception). We had 50 people attending and he reassured me all along the way that the event would go well, and it did! Chef and his assistant arrived early, helped set up the room for better flow, arranged the food and punch tables, and added lovely special touches such as red roses and petals on the serving tables. Guests praised the food and my mother is still raving about the event. Many thanks to Chef Kev! We highly recommend him.
Sam helped with our daughter's birthday party. There were 27 children there and Sam made sure everyone received balloons... He stayed beyond the contracted time and was so gracious! I hope i have a reason to call him back!
I hired Coast to Coast Event Staff to help me with a 40th birthday party for 40 guests. Dee answered the call when there was less than 7 days to the event. I originally asked for a bartender and an event helper to assist on the party day...I planned to do the rest on my own! Dee offered some helpful suggestions and worked with me to stay on budget. By the end her team created a stunning 3 tier cake and cake pops that matched my photo perfectly (with a 2 day deadline) - ordered/pick up/delivered food from my favorite restaurant - provided all party supplies - balloons - candy display - set up and cleaned up! That part might be easy but it was the customer service and level of communication that earns 5 stars. Dee took the worry right out of my hands. Anthony and Christie were professional and a fun addition to the party. I felt like a princess without breaking the bank and each and every guest left with a smile. Happy to be a referral as they earned my future business.
I ordered cookies from Crafty Mom for my daughter's Winter Onederland birthday party and they were a huge hit. Not only were they adorable but they were delicious too! Will be ordering again for upcoming events
This service was absolutely amazing. I had a birthday party with 50 guests. I hired two people and they came in and did so much to help. I was able to give directions without having to oversee their work. My guests were so pleased by the politeness and professionalism by both servers who helped and didn't seem "in the way". I am definitely going to use this service for every future party. Thank you all for your fabulous help! I couldn't have done it without you!
Candra was hired as the event coordinator for a 50th birthday party. She took care of everything from the decorations, food, cake, even the event location. The food was delicious. Everyone had a great time! Wonderful to work with. Will certainly hire her again in the future.
The entire ALD team is incredible! Communication, professionalism, decorating...all of it. Impeccable. They did a fantastic job for my Grandmother’s 90th birthday party. It was beautiful. Not only did April do exactly what we asked but she anticipated any other need we might have and was prepared for that as well. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. I have already given the information out to quite a few people. ALD is definitely where it’s at!
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?
Planning my 1st daughter, 1st birthday party. Candice and Denean was extremely professional from the very first encounter. I am known to have anxiety and they made sure everything I wanted was executed. They even did extra just to make sure I was comfortable. I will be using them to plan my next events. Worth every penny to hire these PROS to do their craft!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful Floyd's DJ services was! They were professional, paid attention to detail, kept the party live and got involved with the crowd. My husband threw me a 40th birthday party and they really added to the specialness of my celebration. Everyone commented on how wonderful the music was and they accommodated guests requests as well as my special requests. To top it all off, I had an all green affair and they had beautiful green up lights for me and the DJs wore green too. I thought that was so nice and thoughtful to dress the part. At the end of the night both DJs engaged in nice conversation with my husband and I as they were breaking down their equipment. I was well pleased with their service and am going to recommend them for another event later in the year. If you need a DJ, go with Floyd's DJ service. I promise you will not be disappointed!
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.
Was an amazing experience for old and young at my joint birthday party for my one year and eight year olds. She was a total hit. Thank you so much!
We hired Toria for my Goddaughters second birthday. She was wonderful! She arrived on time and ready to be ambushed by kids. Her work was great and she was genuinely polite and professional. She didn't even bat an eye when my Goddaughter decided to paint herself with Toria's paint (after already having her face painted!!) She did such a wonderful job most of the adults received face painting as well. We'll definitely use her again!
BMore Fabulous Designs did a WONDERFUL job on my Mother's 60th Birthday Party! The venue was decorated beautifully by Erin and her staff. Everyone in attendance raved about the beautiful decorations. I am very particular and somewhat hard to please (lol) but I was THOROUGHLY impressed and satisfied with the services provided by BMore Fabulous Designs. I would highly recommend Erin and will definitely use her services again for any future celebrations.
It was a pleasure working with Jan to decorate my son's first birthday party. She is a professional and she recommended to do an organic balloons backdrop with my son's initials cutout and it looked amazing! All guests enjoyed taking pictures with the backdrop on the background and I was super happy with how the decorations turned out. Definitely recommend!
Lisa is so creative and has great ideas to make the event special and unique. And she takes care of all the logistical details so you don't have to worry about anything. I highly recommend her to anyone planning an event!
Wow! is all I can say. Vanessa is calm and professional. She gives extreme attention to detail and that is what is needed to plan a successful party for 100 guests. She was able to bring our ideas to life. Vanessa is an incredible party planner and I highly recommend her.
It is hard to overstate my satisfaction with Chef Giovanni's work. My dinner plan wasn't simple - I was doing a surprise dinner party for 100 at a vineyard deep in Virginia wine country. The meal required travel, setting up an intimate dining space for two in a space designed for bigger events, and doing it all with few phone calls or other direct communications to keep the surprise. Chef just nailed it. He created a beautiful, creative set up; his cooking is superb, mindful and delicious; and his demeanor is calm, reassuring and fun. I enjoyed everything about it and would recommend him to anyone doing an event from intimate dinner party to a larger event. Chef Giovanni is a true talent and a delight to work with.
She helped us with our 3 year old’s birthday party. It was amazing! Decorations were beautiful, and the arrangements were perfect and she was professional through the whole process!
My daughter had a fabulous 7th birthday party with her best girl friends thanks to the Purple Princess! From Set up, activities, to clean up, they have everything covered. For the value, you could not ask for more. The girls still talk about how fun it was. This would be good for birthday parties, bachelorette parties, or spa days. I highly recommend. Great idea!
