I couldn’t have put together a more beautiful shower in my wildest dreams!

Karen went way above and beyond what I ever expected, I couldn't be happier with the way my baby shower turned out. When I first started working with Karen I was instantly confident about her project management/organization skills. I couldn’t have put together a more beautiful baby shower in my wildest dreams! Everything was EXACTLY how I wanted it down to the smallest details.

Karen helped me pinpoint my vision for the party.

I hired Karen to help plan a 40th birthday party for my husband, but I wasn't sure where to begin. Karen helped me pinpoint my vision for the party and provided some venue ideas. Once we had a place booked she made some great, and very affordable recommendations for a DJ and cake. She also was a big help in choosing decorations and incorporating personalized touches that really represented the birthday boy. I would highly recommend Karen and her staff!

Our son was thrilled and loved every minute of it!

I interviewed several planners in an attempt to find one who would help me plan my son's "special" bar mitzvah celebration. We had a few challenges going in that would make our party a bit a-typical. Our son and many guests has Autism, we needed the whole menu to be gluten free and we had a "small" budget to work with. The party was perfect - our son was thrilled and loved every minute of it. Our guests had a wonderful time, everything was smooth and seamless and fun and festive. It was truly the best party we have ever been to - both a great time and a really meaningful celebration and we will remember it forever. I cannot recommend Karen highly enough.
