Fantastic! Could not have done it without Kelly!
What an incredible party we had - and I was able to enjoy it! Kelly was fantastic - she saw to every need we had from setting up, refilling, & cleaning up. This is the first time that I truly did not have to run around keeping up with food, drink, clean up, etc. and when the party was over I walked in to a clean kitchen! Kelly was professional & efficient, and a friendly & nice person! I would recommend Parties for U to all!
SIX STARS!! Very Satisfied Customer
I had to take a moment to say thank you to Parties for U team lead by Susie. I cannot express my gratefulness and appreciation for your services.
I found this company through Google search and then reached out to Susie regarding a backyard Bridal Shower for my sister to request wait staff services. I received above and beyond what I expected. Terri and Danielle are AWESOME!! The came and jumped right into taking over to relieve me. Once they received direction of the day, you never needed to discuss it again. They mingled with the guest, made sure drinks were flowing, tables were cleared and buffet area was maintained. Afterwards, they took the time to help clean up, pack away food items and rental dinnerware items. They were courteous, friendly, patient but most importantly very professional throughout the entire event. Each guest was treated with detailed attention. I feel I found a company, I can rely on for personal and professional event services in the future. Every guest leaving the Bridal Shower gave Terri and Danielle nothing but HIGH ACCULADES.
Thank you again and I'm so glad I found you.
College Graduation Party
Susie and Deanna were great. We used Parties For U for wait staff and servers. I wish I would have known that they also rent tents, tables, and chairs. They certainly would have beat the price I paid for my rentals. You could not ask for a more professional help. They were wonderful. It was great being able to mingle with my guests, leaving everything in very capable hands with Susie. Everything was packed up and cleaned up. It was wonderful not having to worry about cleaning up after the party. Thank you, again, Susie and Deanna. I will definitely be calling you for my next party.
Terry and Denise we're spectacular!
A couple of weeks ago, my brother threw his first big formal party - over 50 kids and nearly twice as many adults. He did not realize how important it is to have servers to take care of all the little things you do not have time for as a host. He contacted Susie the day before the event, asked if two servers would be available, and Terry and Denise agreed to help out with less than 24hr notice. They were amazing and we would hire them again in a heartbeat! Very organized, and both worked great under stress! Denise was especially great at handling the children. Terry and Denise were both spectacular at making sure they handled everything so we could mingle with or guests. They arrived about 20 min before we asked them to be there and would have stayed longer than the 4hrs we booked them for if we needed them. I concur with previous sentiments of the staff for Parties For You, extremely dependable, helpful, professional, and nice. Oh I almost forgot, Terry took the time to speak with me the day we booked her to get an idea of the event, what we needed her to do, and get a general plan in place. The day of the event, Terry even reminded me to bring Tupperware to store leftovers. Highly recommend both ladies without hesitation!
6 stars! I would throw another wedding just to have Susie there!
Wish I could give six stars for this incredible team led by Susie! I reached out to Susie about a month before my wedding reception, she responded promptly, asking all of the right questions and helping me organize tasks I wanted done and making helpful suggestions for different aspect of the reception I would have never thought of. I could have NEVER executed this reception without Susie's input, flexibility and genuine care. Her team is amazing, helpful, warm and kind, quick to help me in any way I asked on my husband and my special day (shout out to Terri, Danielle, Gladys and Stephen! You guys are awesome!) I would HIGHLY recommend this professional team to anyone, with parties large and small, for organization, perfect timing and incredible care, treating your event as if they we working for a family member or best friend. They were flexible to stay additional time to clean up and were meticulous hard workers! Wonderful team!! Thank you again for making our day run as smoothly as we could ever imagine!
Bartender and wait staff
I was looking for a bartender and wait staff to help out for my sons graduation party. I was happy to find Suzie's website! She was able to get me the staff I needed at short notice and her employees were awesome! Very friendly and knowledgable. The best part was that my husband and I were able to really enjoy our party! We were able to sit and talk to our family and friends. Definitely 2 👍🏼👍🏼 up ! Looking forward to using Parties for U in the near future!
We know, in the future, who we will be calling for all of our catering needs: Susie and Emilio at Parties for U!!!! Our daughter's graduation party of 50 guests went smoothly and I was actually able to mingle with guests. It was really nice at the end of the night to have a clean home. Thank you!!!!!
Very satisfied customers
We have been using Susie and Emilio to cater our parties, for many years. Recently, we had a graduation party for 120 kids and 50 adults. Parties for U organized everything from the tent rental to the food! Everything was amazing! We decided on a bbq which was a total success, Emilio cooked everything to perfection. Susie and her staff prepared the food, served and cleaned up. The party was a huge success! Thank you parties for U!!!!
Longtime and happy customer
Over the past 15 years, we've hired Susie for more than a half-dozen parties marking major life events -- bar mitzvahs, graduations, a birthday, an engagement. She has been an integral ingredient in every successful gathering; she is always, always, always professional, dependable, helpful ... and nice. We'd give her our highest endorsement.
