Ricki’s advice and expertise were invaluable in planning my son’s Bar Mitzvah. I benefitted from her varied experience and she was able to guide me from décor to graphic design to timelines for the evening and menu. There was truly no aspect of the event in which she did not have a solid working knowledge.  Ricki was able to save me time and money by simplifying ideas and offering creative solutions with simple elegance and flair that is uniquely her own.  Her natural ability to see the big picture of an event is amazing, and she helped pull all the moving parts and pieces together to create a seamless party both creatively and logistically. I would highly recommend her!

Ricki is a workhorse! She can manage hundreds of tiny details, massage your ideas into fabulousness (I know that's not a word but it's what she does!), be resourceful beyond your imagination and ensure that you don't worry about a single thing the day of your event. She will think about things you never would have on your own and execute to perfection. Together we were able to provide my friends and family with a memorable Bar Mitzvah weekend that left a lasting impression.

Ricki helped me with two large back to back successful events, a non-profit gala fundraiser and a Bar Mitzvah.  She is creative, resourceful, reliable and detail oriented. She took charge of the situation and made wonderful decisions, including me when necessary. I felt confident in her abilities and was thrilled and delighted with the overall events. I highly recommend Ricki for your future events.

Ricki, I wanted to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your help in planning Kyle’s Bar-Mitzvah. Your creativity, originality, advice, guidance and support made the event fun and a huge success. The Bar-Mitzvah was without a doubt, a truly memorable evening. You captured Kyle’s personality and created a unique and original baseball  themed party. Your creative vision and attention to detail was amazing to witness throughout the entire planning process. You made us feel like you were just as excited about the event as we were. We will definitely use you again. Thanks for the best party ever!

Ricki is incredibly creative and talented. I am not a decisive person, and yet she was able to guide me, and come up with amazing ideas and themes that made the event perfect for my son.  She created the perfect room, from decor to the center pieces, everything  perfectly tailored to our liking.  And her understanding of what the kids need to have fun is incredible. No details missed, and a room full of smiles!  We couldn’t ask for more.  Thank you Ricki for helping make our festive weekend so fabulous!!!
