I wanted to let you and everyone know how amazing you both are. We are now in the process of planning my son's Bar Mitzvah which is the third party you have helped me with. You couldn't have made the process any easier, from not only finding a location, creating invitations, to coming up with concepts and details that made my families Bat/Bar Mitzvahs ones that we will never forget. Your attention to detail, as well as your creativity made all of my parties so special. You have helped us create memories that will last a lifetime. You have both made it all so easy and I just wanted to say Thank you. Thank you."

"I want to thank you for making my Bat Mitzvah so "typical Jessica". You went above and beyond trying to make my party room great but you didn't just make it great, you made it perfect! I was blown away with every detail in the room. I cannot thank you enough for making my night so perfect!"
"There are no words to convey our appreciation to all of you for working as
a team to pull off an evening that exceeded our expectations in every way.
We are still basking in the warmth of love that was shared with our entire
family. Thank you for pulling off a miracle!"

"Girls - What can I say??! The party was a smash! The rooms looked beautiful! The flower arrangements were stunning, the lighting fabulous and the chocolates, yummy!
I've received many compliments from my guests. It seems everyone had a fantastic time and were so thrilled to come away with not only great memories, but with a beautiful orchid arrangement!! Lots of comments regarding the tequila bar, cheese cart and meal, etc., etc. etc...and, best of all, Bryce had an ear to ear smile all evening!!!
Thank you so much for being so attentive and for your attention to detail. I felt that you just "got me" from the start and everyone who walked into the room recognized that.
It was a pleasure working with you from beginning to end and thank you so much taking such good care of me the night of the party! it was wonderful putting the evening into your hands and being able to just be a guest. we had a great time! The evening went way too fast!!
You're the best!!"

"Debi and Nicole planned our son Julian's Bar Mitzvah from top to bottom. It was an amazing event and the best of all was that from the moment we started working with them, the stress of planning the party went away! They did EVERYTHING, from designing and ordering the invitations (my favorite invitation ever!) to finding the venue, the DJ, the entertainment, the photographer, negotiating the best deals; no detail was left unattended. They understood our family and our taste; the party completely represented who we are as a family. It was the best night and I did not have one moment of worry the entire time. We actually got to enjoy our own party! It was all taken care of by Debi and Nicole. We wouldn't do a party without them!"
– Jody Gerson, Co-President Sony/ATV Music Publishing USA
"Nothing is better than throwing a party and having your friends tell you, "This is the best party I've ever been to," especially when they're talking about your son's Bar Mitzvah. Just think how amazing a Quintessential Parties' "grown-up" party would be - I want one of those!!! Everyone should have a Quintessential Parties club in their backyard at least once, especially one that your friends beg you to keep around for every weekend. That's a perfect party!
My greatest joy in throwing a great Bar Mitzvah party was seeing the happiness on my son's face, and watching all of his friends have a non-stop amazing evening. Our friends and family were equally happy, and no one wanted the night to end. Debi and Nicole made all the magic happen, and every minute of planning was enjoyable and stress-free. The best party I've ever been to was my own son's Bar Mitzvah party. I attribute every moment of enjoyment, including months of planning, to Debi and Nicole's creativity, relationships, organization and amazing spirit. I can't wait for an opportunity to have them throw me another perfect party!"
– Allison Wright Kaplan and Andy Kaplan, President
International Networks at Sony Pictures Television
"Debi and Nicole pulled off the feat of holding our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party at our home, which they transformed beyond our wildest expectations! The entire evening was so well orchestrated; they made it seem effortless, but I know how extremely hard they worked behind the scenes. It was a better party than we ever could have imagined!"
– Liza Chasin, Working Title Films
"Debi and Nicole worked so hard for our annual fundraiser for Teen Impact. We so appreciated the effort they put into finding ways to save us money so that every dollar raised would benefit the children, but were also able to give us an absolutely beautiful event. They made "deals" we couldn't have done without their help. It was also great fun to work with them...professional, organized and caring."

I can’t believe how calm and peaceful I felt the whole day."

"The best part was that I had faith and confidence that you would take care of everything the couple of days leading up to my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, so I could focus on her and my family. That is saying a lot for a control freak like me! And you did. If there were glitches you handled them totally to my liking."

"The room looked great and was exactly as we discussed, the décor in the adult room was simple and elegant with just the right touch of fun, and the kids' room was exactly what Monica wanted. The flowers Debi designed and put together were absolutely beautiful and we had many compliments on them. They fit the room perfectly, meeting our requirements of color, height, size and detail. We were very pleased with how they looked and thrilled we didn't need to work with a florist! You both took care of all of the details so discreetly and calmly we never had to give them a thought; it was such a pleasure working with you both."
– Cheryl and John Raiss
