Anna, Birthday Party

"Thank you all so much for your amazing work in putting together such a lovely party for Marcus 21st on Saturday. We knew we were making the right decision to use Food Events for a second time from the start. Your attention to detail, great communication and support throughout the process was fantastic. You really have been a pleasure to work with. It was as if the cavalry had arrived when the team turned up on Saturday. You all instantly swung into action and produced a stunning bar with drinks beautifully laid out, tables that looked gorgeous as well as tying up all the names and people for each table – a real headache! We particularly appreciate Anne’s calm, efficient and totally reassuring presence….she’s a star! I don’t think I ever want to hold a party without her by my side! She was just what we needed to control a group of happy, rather exuberant 20 somethings who were having a great time."
