We LOVED your craft cocktails, passion and personality - 45th-B'day Celebration: October 2016
Blaz, it was a pleasure having you in our home to help host Vince's 45th birthday party. You were great and our guests truly enjoyed your drinks and personality.
Your passion for creating specialty drinks was appreciated by all. We LOVED your craft cocktails.....it was so refreshing to step away from the traditional bar drinks. Everyone is still raving on how much fun they had that night, so thank you for your help to make our party so special!
We will certainly keep you in mind for future gatherings.
Jennifer and Vince, Haworth, NJ
You made us feel like guests in our own Home - 50th Birthday Party August 2016
Blazena, Thank you cannot begin to express our appreciation for your work during the 50th Birthday Party. You and Kate came in, took over the kitchen/serving with the same attention to detail and warm hospitality that we would expect to provide for our guests.... Handing over the reigns to you was challenging for veteran party planners/hosts, but you put us at ease and allowed us to enjoy our guests for the entire event! There is much to be said for old world standards and service and you and Kate embodied these attributes.
Thanks so much for sharing yourself and your passion for hospitality with us! We look forward to working with you at future events!

Thank you Blazena for your wonderful service and help! From grilling to bartending and everything in between, you did a fabulous job keeping our party running and our guests happy. You and your team are so attentive to details, friendly and helpful. I truly can't say enough about our experience. We loved being able to relax and enjoy our own party. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Nan, Morristown, NJ
Blazena and Kate, assistant, were extremely helpful and in fact instrumental in the success of our son Maxi's birthday party.
From the moment she walked in , Blazena took over in a professional manner and assured us that everything would be handled perfectly and we were to just enjoy our party.
One cannot ask more! The party was tended to and everything was cleaned up and a perfect manner. We highly recommend them for any gathering or party and look forward to working with them again.
Thank you! See you soon
A Perfect Passover Dinner!
Hi Blazena, Jay and I wanted to say "Thank You" for the amazing service you and your staff performed for us and our guests during our Passover seders. We had over 20 guests each night, and we were looking for a service that would help with every aspect of the meal. You and your staff outdid yourselves! Everything you plated looked beautiful, you took the reigns with preparing the fruit salad and arranging the desserts in a way I would never have thought to do it, and it all came out so beautiful. You made sure my guests had everything they needed, and kept the table clean throughout the evening. What also impressed Jay and I, was how well you cleaned the kitchen, so by the time you left, the counters and floors were spotless and everything was put away. The kitchen was ready for the next day! Thank you so much for making our seders two nights we could spend and enjoy with friends and family, as opposed to prior years, where we didn't have a chance to sit down, talk to anyone, or enjoy the meal because we were so busy working and serving and cleaning. You really gave us the ability to enjoy. Thank you!!!!
Jillian's Sweet 16 - Paramus
Thank you Blazena and to your top-notch staff for providing superb wait staff services for my daughter’s Sweet 16 party. From beginning to end, you came in and took care of every little detail to make the evening the hit that it was! From setting up the buffet in a way that made sense, to making sure the food was kept hot until it was time to bring it out, getting coffee and desserts ready, refilling drink pitchers, and everything that goes along with food service, it was evident that you were impeccably organized. I was able to relax and have a wonderful time at the party and afterwards, because you took care of all the clean up when the night was through. You and your staff were warm and friendly throughout the evening and so very professional. I highly recommend you and your wonderful staff and will not hesitate to call you in the future. Thank you again.
You have exceeded our expectations and made our parties especially enjoyable for all!
Thank you so much for the excellent service that you provided for our daughter's recent birthday party. For the second year in a row, you have exceeded our expectations and made our parties especially enjoyable for all! Your professionalism both in the planning process and during the event has been exceptional and quite a few of our guests have asked about you for their future gatherings. Working with you has alleviated so much of the stress in putting these events together because we know that your services are one area we don't have to worry about at all. Looking forward to partnering with you again next year -if not sooner!
Everything was perfect! You made my Christmas Day relaxing! 12-25-15

Everything was perfect- and I would be thrilled to use your services again as well as recommend you to others.
Have a safe and healthy New Year. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Memorable Thanksgiving 2015
Good morning, Blazena:
Eddie was perfect. I couldn't have asked for more. He took the reigns and accomplished a memorable Thanksgiving celebration. He efficiently handled my kitchen and even took time to share some of his culinary tips with my nephew, which made him very happy.
I could write several pages of praise for Eddie, but for now I am sending you my humble thanks for coming to my rescue with Eddie, especially at such short notice.
Your kindness, organization, and professionalism were evident every step of the way. I have already begun to recommend you and your company to others. Once again, my heartfelt thanks to you and Eddie.
Best regards, Loretta (NJ)
We couldn't have been more pleased with the professional and efficient service of Staff with Class. This will be a memorable occasion in our lives.
Good Morning Chef Blaz,
Just a short note to let you know that I would like to thank you, Maria and Erica for all your efforts and hard work!
The party was a success and we couldn't have been more pleased with the professional and efficient service of Staff with Class.
We were able to enjoy the party and our guests, knowing Maria and Erica had everything under control. We were pleased with the clean up process as well as the set up and serving of our guests. This will be a memorable occasion in our lives.....
Hope to use your services again in the future!

Very impressed with your professional approach and confident service
Thank you, Blaz, for stepping in on short notice and making our Christmas Party such a success. I never had to think about which hors d'oeuvres were coming when -- you had it well under control. You even got the wine stains out of my tablecloth! Charlie and I were very impressed with your professional approach and confident service. We will certainly call your service for our next event.
Rosemary and Charlie, Wyckoff, NJ
Professional service and wonderful addition to our parties!
Thank you for your professional bartending services! You are a wonderful addition to our parties and your hard work is much appreciated!
My parents love to throw parties and I know they plan to engage your services too; plus word of mouth is everything as well. Have a wonderful holiday!
Thank you again.
Blazena supplied wait staff for our annual Thanksgiving feast. Erika came into the house, got right to work, and never stopped. What a dynamo! She knew exactly what to do and was often changing tasks before being asked. She helped keep the party moving smoothly from drinks to appetizers to main course to dessert. My wife and I were able to enjoy our guests more then ever. What a pleasure!
courteous, efficient and hard working

Lorraine was punctual, professional, and her attention to detail allowed me to relax and enjoy my guests and the shower. She anticipated what needed attention and handled everything.
I will certainly recommend Staff with Class to anyone who wants to enjoy his or her own party!

GREAT work for our wedding! We cannot imagine getting through it without your ...
Thank you very much for your GREAT work for our wedding! We cannot imagine getting through it without your professional help! Thank you for staying longer to clean up, pack the left overs, and put them in the fridge, I didn't know! It was definitely a great thing that we didn't have to deal with it the next day! We deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. Again, thank you very much for everything from advising us to being financially flexible, cooking, setting up, serving, and cleaning. If we ever need professional servers again, we'll definitely be in touch!
All the best,
Y & R, Bloomfield, NJ
Service above and beyond expectations, allowing me to relax and enjoy my party and entertain my guests.
I hired Blaz' staff (one waitress and a griller) to help with a large barbeque my husband and I hosted at our home. Both staff members went above and beyond expectations, allowing me to relax and enjoy my party and entertain my guests. At the beginning of a party, people can sometimes be hesitant to be the first ones ordering food. So instead of waiting around for people to order, our griller was extremely proactive and approached my guests, taking orders. He grilled up the food to perfection! Clearly, he is very experienced and personable. The griller and waitress also worked very well together. She took some food orders and when they were prepared, she found the individuals who had placed the orders. None of this was asked or expected of her so we were very pleased with her work. Both the waitress and our griller were very professional and kind. The waitress cleaned up beautifully before leaving, and packed up all of our extra food and placed it in our refrigerator.
At the end of our party, my husband and I had nothing left to do but talk about all of the fun we had! I would absolutely hire Blaz' staff for my next party.
Spectacular experience in every event Blazena has done
Blazena always brings matchless design and experience to every party she serves. Whether it's catering/cooking, bartending, or event staffing, she delivers outstanding quality professional service with high integrity and expertise and the best cadre of reliable staff on her teams. I hired her services more than once, each time guaranteed with great results. I look forward to every occasion to see what kind of touch she will add. It is the myriad of tiny details that add up to a spectacular experience in every event she has done.
Professional, awesome bartending service - Engagement Party, Allendale NJ - June 2014
I wanted to say that I was so happy (and so were my guests) with your professional and so efficient bartending service at our engagement party! We will definitely be thinking of using you in the future when we have our own house and our own parties. Thanks again!

Thoroughly pleased by your very professional service (Ho-Ho-Kus), June 2014
Thank you and want to tell you how thoroughly pleased I was by your very professional service.
I have given several parties and can honestly say this was the first one I really enjoyed, because I felt that you and your staff had everything under control.
Thank you so much for making my daughter's day a success!
I have already recommended your service to several friends.
Feel free to contact me as a reference any time.
For the first time in a long time I got to enjoy a party in my own home! June 2014, Paramus NJ

Staff with Class Service - Bridal Shower - Chattham, NJ
We loved having you and you were by far one of the best decisions we made! We truly enjoyed meeting you and your efficient and professional assistance.
Jeri and Family, Chattham, NJ
Tracy's Graduation Party - Bloomfield, NJ
I want to thank you and your very competent staff for the services you provided in preparing and serving the food and beverages at my daughter's graduation party. In particular, I was impressed with the timing of the different courses you laid out and the gorgeous platters which you designed from the mass of food that I ordered.
Your organizational skills were great. Instead of just laying out all of the food for the guests to scramble after, you prepared and presented the platters in a decorative and appetizing display which made them very attractive.
You timed the different courses just right and in fact, my guests later commented to me that they couldn't wait to get to the table because they looked so good.
You carved the beef and pork to perfection, so much so that many guests told me they went back for seconds and thirds.
Your bartender was top notch. He knew exactly how to make the new contemporary drinks, but he also made the drinks the old timers knew from the old days which is important when you have the old and the young at one party.
Finally, you cleaned up after and collected the leftovers so that it made it easy for us after the party was over. Now that's important.
All in all, I am very happy that you provided us with a most professional and wonderful party for my daughter and I am sure that without you, it most certainly would have been chaos. I will recommend you to all my friends and business associates.
Thank you! Richie Conta
STAFF with CLASS - Engagement Party - Jersey City, NJ
Thank you for all your services at my & John's engagement party.
Everyone loved the signature drink "PASSION KISS". It was a super hit!
We appreciate your going out of the way, setting up a private tasting for us prior to our party. We could taste and select the signature drink and appreciate your skills developing it with us according to our taste and desire :)
THANKS AGAIN, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!

STAFF with CLASS service: 60th B'Day celebration, - Succasunna, NJ
Thank you again for the wonderful job you and Alena did for us at the party last Saturday.
My husband wanted to have a 60th birthday in a local firehouse. My only stipulation was that we hire wait staff for the evening so that I could enjoy the party for a change :).
I called local companies from research on the Internet and received a variety of hourly rate quotes. Although Blazena Federer, from Staff With Class, provided a higher quote than some of the others, I really liked her professional manner and her assurances that once we explained exactly what was required, she would handle the rest of the evening so that I could attend to my guests.
Our decision to engage Staff with Class was a great one. From the moment they arrived, Blazena and Alena took charge of all the preparations and ensured that the food and beverages were put out at the appropriate times. At the end of the evening, all dishes, utensils and kitchen surfaces were clean, garbage and recyclables dealt with, and all leftover food, drinks and paper goods were packed up and ready to go.
Instead of spending hours both during and after the party on prep and cleanup, we were able to leave shortly after the party ended.
We can’t thank them enough and would be sure to use them for future parties and highly recommend them for anyone wanting to have an enjoyable party with their guests.
We will be happy to provide referrals/recommendations.
Take care and we will be sure to keep you in mind for the future!
Marcia & Neil, Succasunna, NJ

Thank you for making our party a huge success! You and your staff were not only professional and courteous to all our guests, but we felt you definitely went the extra mile. The food was cooked perfectly and plated beautifully and the ice cream station was an added special touch.
All of my guests complimented the service and the food. And, from the hosts of the party, we actually got to enjoy ourselves by being able to leave the running of the party in your and your staff’s hands. Thank you for a wonderful party. We will definitely use Staff with Class for future events!

Staff with Class Service - Batmitzvah - Ridgewood, NJ - September 2012
Blazena Federer and her staff at Culinary Affair, LLC (Staff with Class) were absolutely amazing at advising, planning, executing, and cleaning up impeccably after our party.
We hosted about 100 kids and 50 adults for our daughter's bat mitzvah party in our backyard. Other than meeting with Blazena to plan the event, we did not have to do anything.
Blazena walked us through every step of the process, making sure that we felt comfortable with all decisions, and she did so with an energy and enthusiasm that made us very excited.
Not only does Blazena act professionally and has a keen understanding of her business, but she is also very personable and easy-going.
This is the perfect combination for a successful party. Her staff was equally professional and hard working. Our only regret is that we didn't know about Culinary Affair for our older 4 children's bar and bat mitzvahs.
Thank you for a super job, Blazena and your staff!
Susan Flanzman, M.D. and Daniel Fishbein, Ed.D.
