Nicole was super quick to respond. She did exactly what I asked for. She arrived to the party venue before time and went out of the way to set up the place much more than what we asked for. This truly speaks how passionate she is about things. The assistant she sent after party to take down the balloons was also super nice and even helped us with taking our photos. Though i was out when Nicole came to do the decor I am super grateful to her and will hire her in future too. Some of our guests too have taken thier company's details.

Details: Birthday party • Party host • 25 guests or fewer • 31 - 50 years old • Balloon backdrop • Indoors • My home, venue, etc. • At the pro’s location

I absolutely loved working with Nicole! She did such an amazing job with our at home celebration decor that we were in awe of how swiftly and effortlessly she put things together. I like that she is very collaborative, understands the vision when you share your ideas and is not hesitant to go back and forth until you are satisfied. Her quality work speaks for itself when the finished product all comes together. She’s so resourceful and pretty much had everything that I needed for my event so she literally saved me tons of trips, money and time to the store - literally a one stop shop decorator. I couldn’t be more happy with her work and cannot wait to collaborate with her in the future ❤️

Details: Birthday party • Party host • 25 guests or fewer • 31 - 50 years old • Balloon arches • Balloon backdrop • Outdoors • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

She is awesome. We hired her for my son's first birthday party. She did a great job for hot air balloon themed first birthday party. She did amazing hot air balloon themed photo booth, centerpieces for the tables, food tables, mock tails, balloon column entrance, guest book table decoration, cake table decoration etc. She is a very good planner in pre-event planning. She also did an amazing job in cleaning, loading and unloading things from our car to the venue. Her team also did an amazing job. She was with me through out the event planning. I highly recommend turtle occasions to be as your event decor and planner for your next party.

Details: Birthday party • Party host • 26 - 50 guests • 12 years old or younger • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Balloon arches • Balloon drops • Indoors • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try very hard to accommodate and be flexible and fair with my pricing for each party and it's specific needs. There are some relatively common things each party will expect, but there are many aspects that will be different and unique to each event. With that in mind, I have worked very hard to design and provide unique event services that are sure to entertain and please any guest and help relax and calm any event host!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Every event is unique and requires special attention to different details. We will go over everything in the beginning so you are confident that all will go as planned. I love to schedule phone calls since it's the easiest way to communicate all the details, however I'm more than open to texting and emails which I have found is easier for some people!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    In 2019 I earned by BA in business management. I have also been planning everything for as long as I can remember. I'm the oldest of 6 children, so instinctively I always tried to coordinate and manage my younger siblings. In our early 20's, as my friends started getting married I realized I had a natural knack for making their weddings/bridal showers/engagement parties to run smoothly and taking on responsibilities without thinking about it because I knew someone needed to do it. In that process I realized I loved being in that role and started occasionally taking on weddings as event planner. Years later, after doing a combo birthday party for the children I was nannying for at the time, I also discovered I turly LOVE designing, decorating and planning birthday parties (for ALL ages) and have finally decided I enjoy this profession so much that I've been able to make it my career.
