I hired Patrice to do an engagement party for my son and future daughter-in-law in my house.  She did a wonderful job of gearing the menu to the group.  The presentation was wonderful and the food was extraordinary.  We received many many compliments.  I would hire Splendid Feast again.

Dear Patrice,

Words cannot express out warmest thanks for all you did to create SUCH a party for my mom.

I have rarely seen her so happy.  It was just the kind of exceptional romantic event I hoped she would have, but didn’t dare to envision, until I spoke with you, and you understood everything I wanted but didn’t know how to ask for.  AS soon as we started to drive home she said to me, “I simply cannot wait to tell you that everything was exquisite.”  And my mom keeps telling her friends about how wonderful you were, and to what extraordinary lengths you went to ensure everybody’s happiness.  Right now she is telling my aunt about how “Patrice’s event manager even brought her daughter to baby-sit the children and have games for them….”

My brother said, “It was perfect.  It could not have been more perfect.”

Considering the appalling conditions you had to work with – 2 tables on a balcony!!!!!–It was all simply unbelievable.  The decorations!  The food!  The cake!

God bless you and your family and all your pursuits, and my sincerest thanks for the friendship that went with your very hard work, and made everything more special than one could have hoped.  The party is still going on for me……
