Customers we’ve worked with

Kudos we’ve received

When I was hired by the family for their engagement party and wedding, there was never any doubt in my mind, that Special Events would be the most important vendor to orchestrate their celebrations. The finales were superb! I appreciate all of your staff members; they are all attentive, enthusiastic, and hard working. As we worked on this wedding for almost a year ~ I know that we often put the “impossible” to you, but you came through on every occasion. Your attention to detail and seeing every last wish come true and going beyond what was expected, was incomparable. I am most grateful to have had the opportunity to work with both of you and your staff. I look forward to our next adventure, hopefully, in the very near future!

As we enter the New Year I wanted to wish you “the very best” for continued success. The transformation that you gave our driveway and garage for Stephanie and Kenny’s wedding was just short of “phenomenal.”

People are still talking about it. In fact, one of our guests from Traverse City told me: “Peter, when you gave the toast…you should have added a line: “For the first person who can find our garage, there is a special prize.””

You are the very best I have ever observed doing “very creative” work. You certainly delivered a result that never could have been imagined.

You rock! People have been raving about the décor for “To the Nines!” Great Hall has never looked better! Your concepts and designs were masterful, and the execution; sublime. Thank you for all of your hard work in helping make this year’s gala a success.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. You all blew me out of the water on Art Prize. I dream stuff up but guys take it one step further and you put my ideas on steroids! I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate each one of you. You are all so gifted and I’m blessed to be able to work with you and count on you as friends. Thanks for everything you did to make Art Prize a success!


A huge thank you to you and your team for your help in making the 31st Annual Dinner an incredible success. If anyone can make an event in an assembly plant elegant and beautiful, it’s you! You truly created a garden-inspired cocktail reception and a gorgeous dinner area. The committee and guests were absolutely blown away with the décor.

We know that you always have our best interest at heart and so appreciate that you made sure that the event was perfect in every way. You are such a wonderful partner of ours and you were absolutely critical in helping us pull off this amazing event. We look forward to working with you again in the near future!

The party was a huge success – much due to the beautiful tent and the inviting accomidations. We thank you for your professional setup and attractive, well maintained furniture. I am very appreciative of your attention to detail – the pleating of the fabric, the seams in the carpeting, the attachment of the tent to the house, the covering of the catering doors, the staging….all was very well done

DeVos Center

It would be unforgivable NOT to stop to say THANK YOU for the wonderful job you did setting the event details for Saturday’s event. The job was executed perfectly and your team was polite, accommodating and got the job done in a timely manner! THANK YOU!!!

We all get busy, short on patience during such a busy season, but it would be wrong not to take time to let you know how grateful I always am when a job is done well! I will send photos to you – the setting was stunning!

The China Closet

Thank you to you and your organization for the role you played in setting the stage for Dick’s 60th birthday celebration. I appreciate the great work and the many hands it took to make it such a successful event.
Please extend my heartfelt thanks to your staff for their attention to detail and a job well done!

What an amazing event!!! I hope you all had a chance to relax after Friday night’s extravaganza. Hob Nobble Gobble presented by Ford was an amazing success!!! I’m not sure how, but every year you all make it bigger and better than the one before. We appreciate your hard work, dedication, organization, sparkles and fun you provide in making this event the magical experience everyone looks forward to each year. We certainly left feeling like we were all walking on sunshine!

Thank you again! Enjoy your Thanksgiving with family, friends and of course America’s Thanksgiving parade presented by Art Van.
