Dori is amazing to work with, so talented! Total party has done two parties for us & I cannot say enough about how talented & easy to work with they are. Dori completely understood what I was looking for & managed to produce something even better than I could have ever imagined. She is so creative & knocks it out of the park every time!
I used Total Party for last minute centerpieces for my daughters Bat Mitzvah and I was So happy I did. Dori and staff are wonderful. Her centerpieces were beautiful. She is very talented. I highly recommended her to all seeking a creative place with reasonable prices.
I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah celebration. The decorations were amazing and looked great! I especially love the shirts! And my daughter loved everything! Looking forward to planning with you again!
Dori from Total Party did an amazing job for my son’s bar mitzvah at Cherry Valley Country Club. She was easy to talk to, and brainstormed ideas with me. Dori has a massive catalog of pictures from which to choose from but she will also help you identify what would suit your event space the best. Everything was arranged via e-mail and phone. I’m super pleased that I choose the hot air balloon centerpieces as they allowed for guests to clearly see each other and we received tons of compliments on the creativity of the installations. I would highly recommend Dori and Total Party!
Always a pleasure working with Dori! Great service and the little details never forgotten!
Dori, OMG! How amazing the room looked when we walked in yesterday! The centerpieces we’re even better in person than I imagined. I knew when we met you were the person I wanted to work with…and you surpassed my expectations. I loved the light up boxes and added centerpieces with the logo…really fantastic!
Thanks again for everything!
Dori did a phenomenal job with the centerpieces for my son’s bar mitzvah!!! The room looked amazing!
Total Party was a one stop-shop for me, from invitations to logo, to decor, to party planning assistance and tons of advice, my experience couldn’t have been better. Dori exceeded my expectations and the room looked awesome. She went above and beyond, making suggestions I could never have imagined and tying it all together.
I choose Total Party for my daughters sweet 16 and was very happy with everything that Dori put together for us.
The center pieces came out exactly the way we told her to make them. The balloon decoration was the high light of the area and the 16 piece candle vases were put so well together that they looked very elegant. Total Party made my daughter’s evening a memorable one and I would highly recommend it.
Working with Dori was as easy as could be. Everything was perfect!
Dori is a pleasure to work with. Great service, creative touches and attention to detail. Total Party really provided the atmosphere for my son’s big day and delivered above expectation. This was our second time working with Dori and I recommend her to anyone planning a party!
I can tell that for the customer who knows EXACTLY what they want, Dori is the person to work with. But for THIS person, who was indecisive, wishy-washy, and last-minute, turns out that Dori is STILL the person to work with! Everything at my daughter’s bat mitzvah looked beautiful and elegant, and what I loved most was watching Dori tackle every logistical challenge I threw her way. She is the consummate professional and just a total joy to work with!
It is difficult to put into words how wonderful Dori is. I went to her with an idea for a “book” themed bar mitzvah and had tons of ideas floating around in my head….she meticulously helped me execute each and every idea and was patient, kind and professional every step of the way. The day was everything I hoped it would be and more. She thought of things I could not have dreamed of. She was there for me every step of the way. She helped me with everything including timelines, invitations and etiquette. (which I definitely needed lots of help with). No question was silly or inconvenient. She is simply wonderful and I can only hope I have the opportunity to work with her again!!! I wish I could give her more than 5 stars….
Dori was so amazing to work with. The room looked amazing for my kids bnai mitzvah.
This review comes a little late, but so well deserved. Dori did an amazing job with the rainbow heart theme first birthday for my daughter. She completely outdid herself and it was beyond my expectations. Thank you so much for doing such a beautiful job! We will be seeing you for our next event! I will post pics to the page!! Amazing job!
Dori and her team never cease to amaze me. As a photographer her creative genius adds that perfect touch to my images and her work always wows my clients! You will not be disappointed!
Absolutely outstanding work!! Creative and great attention to detail!! Thank you for the beautiful display at Alison’s bat mitzvah!!
Hi Dori – You did my party yesterday at The Elan. Everything looked beautiful. Thank you so much. You did a wonderful job. The centerpieces were absolutely phenomenal. The Kayla sign was gorgeous. You did a very, very good job. I wanted to thank you so very much for making everything look so nice.
I wanted to thank you for making Haley’s Bat Mitzvah so special!! Everything was beautiful at shul and on Sunday. Both rooms looked amazing!!! Thank you for your help with all the special touches, ideas and starting everything off with great invitations. I really enjoyed working with you and look forward to planning more simchas with you in the future!!! Have a great weekend!
Dori, You great, perfect person. I just want to say all great adjectives about you. Room looked beautiful. Everything was great. Thank you, thank you for everything. We’ll already thinking you’re our lady for Carly’s!
Thank you again for helping out with our rowing banquet last night. Everything looked beautiful! I really appreciate your efforts. Hope we cross paths again sometime. We have another NCAA event coming in March 2013. I’ll let you know if we’re hosting a party.
Dori– I want to thank you for being reliable, patient, organized and incredibly creative. The pride you take in your work is apparent. You transformed a large empty room into a warm, inviting one in which anyone would love to have a celebration. The bright festive centerpieces were amazing and exactly what we had discussed. The adorable balloon bar mitzvah boy was the talk of the party. Having you guide me through the invitation process was easy and stress free. Thank you for working within
The decorations were beautiful!! I have 2 bright pink palm trees in my entrance way foyer!! The balloons on the ceiling were so festive! Everything was just wonderful! Thank you so much for all your help and patience. I really enjoyed working with you.
The fashion-themed centerpieces for my daughter’s bat mitzvah were absolutely beautiful and so creative. The room looked amazing and fabulous when we walked in. All of our guests loved them and were so impressed. It was such a pleasure and so easy and carefree to work with Dori and she had no problem working with my daughter to flesh out her ideas. She was always in communication with us and had not problem working within our budget. I totally recommend Total-Party for any kind of event.
I just want to tell you that everything was absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed everything. The entire party was great. Everyone who participated was wonderful and you did do the TOTAL PARTY! Everyone commented on how beautiful it was. Just wanted to call and say thank you.
Thank you…. the centerpieces were great !!!! The sign in board came out beautifully also. Thanks again for your flexibility in working with me. I really appreciated it.
Just wanted to thank you for making Ryan’s Bar Mitzvah look fabulous – the room looked phenomenal. The decorations were spot on. So thank you very, very much. It was a pleasure working with you.
Dori, Great working with you too! We received so many compliments from the staff, the guests & the clients! It was such a unique centerpiece & a great contribution to the “Solar System” theme. Thanks again Dori!!
Dori – a very special thank you to you for all you did to decorate the room. I realize it was a very significant donation of time and resources. It really made a big difference and made our reunion even more special.
Thank you so so so much for everything! The balloons were a HUGE hit! I had people from the party upstairs peeking in to check out the decorations. Thanks again and I hope to work with you again one day!
Dori…thank you so-so very much! your work completed that huge room. i would have taken the torches home if i could….actually one lady left w/a column and several centerpieces. Someone else bundled up about 10 centerpieces & brought them right into the restaurant inside where many of continued the party after our party & clustered them right in the middle of the room…quite ingenious, i might add. Thank you again for all your hard work on the day of your anniversary! What a gift you have!
Dori, You made this huge, ugly room look marvelous, nobody noticed the flying saucers on the ceiling. This was a huge task and your hard work shined through, a huge thanks for making our party festive. You were given alot of compliments. Thanks again.
So many compliments on the decorations… You did an awesome job!!!
Want to thank you so very much for an outstanding job you did for East Side High School’s 100th Birthday Celebration. The torches were fantastic. What a great job!!!
Hi Dori, thank you again for the wonderful job you did for Ben’s birthday party! The balloons were adorable.
Words cannot even express how thrilled I was with all of the balloons for today’s Fashion Show!! You captured exactly what I wanted the room to look like. It was BEAUTIFUL!!! THANK YOU!!
Dori, The balloons are still flying high!!!!! Everything looked beautiful on Saturday for Cara’s party. You did a great job and the balloons really enhanced the centerpieces and finished off the room. Everyone was commenting on them. I already gave your name and number to the temple office to give out to those looking for decorations. Thanks so much for everything.
The Bat Mitzvah was amazing. The centerpieces and the sign in book were unbelievable. Adults and kids were raving about them all night. You hit the theme right on the nose. The set up was perfect! You made everything so easy. I think you should put the pictures of the centerpieces and the sign in book on your website as there are no good gymnastic centerpieces out there. You will receive a lot of hits from all over the country from people wanting gymnastic theme centerpieces. Thank you.
You did a fabulous job making Kylie’s gymnastics centerpieces. All our guests were raving about them. Most important the centerpieces made Kylie VERY happy. I am a grandma and have been to dozens of Bar and Bat Mitzvah in my day and I must say the ones you made for Kylie were truly extraordinary. Although I never met you, you were a true professional and a pleasure to work with. I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors.
Balloons held up beautifully! It was such a joyous affair from start to finish. Hannah did an awesome job in Temple and the party was unbelievably fun! Thanks for all!!
Hi Dori: Finally had a chance to sit down and follow up with all my vendors who helped make Samantha’s Sweet Sixteen such a huge success! The name arch and the two columns came out beautiful! They were a wonderful addition to the overall look we were trying to achieve in the room. Thank you very much for making the day an event to remember!
I just wanted to say Thank You for a great job! The balloons looked great and Kelsey was really happy with the way the arch turned out . I knew it would look good. The room looked great and really fit her candy theme with all the bright colors. Thanks again. It was a pleasure working with you.
WOW!!!! We received the sign-in book today for Jen’s party and OMG!!! what a terrific job. It is beautiful and she LOVES it. Me too… Thank you so much for your help, ordering was easy and you delivered such a great product.
Dori was a life saver in planning for the pre and wedding day events… Dori took all of the stress out of wedding planning. I have and will continue to recommend Total Party to others and hope to use Total Party for all future events. Dori has the expertise, caring and expedient manner of providing the highest quality items in a timely fashion. She treats each client with a personal touch and professional flair.
I want to tell you again how AMAZING the room looked for Michelle’s Bat Mitzvah. Everything turned out wonderful – the centerpieces, the sign-in board, the place-cards, the sign over the cocktail hour room, etc.!!! I had so many compliments on everything. You were so much fun to work with these last 2 years and I will miss you next year!! We’ll have to think of a reason to have another party.”
I can’t say thank you enough for all that you have done for Kristen’s party. Everything turned out exceptionally well. The book and candle lighting centerpiece looked fabulous. The balloon centerpieces went well with the table arrangements. If I ever need your services again I know whom to call. We were very pleased with everything.
Just want to thank you for an outstanding job! The balloons looked beautiful and I couldn’t have been happier with the centerpieces (and lights)! I will absolutely continue to HIGHLY recommend you to anyone who is planning a party!!
I just wanted to let you know how beautiful the centerpieces came out. It was so nice to arrive and have everything set up. You did an amazing job. Also, I don’t know if you met Debbie H. who booked our party but she said she would be happy to recommend you. Thanks again.
Dori was very helpful with suggestions and listened to concerns about sticking to a budget. My daughter related well to her which was important. Working with Dori was a pleasure. She was a good listener and was open to suggestions and had many of her own to share. Was very good at working in a collaborative spirit taking into considerations my ideas, my mother’s and those of my daughter.
Thank you again for the beautiful balloons, it simply gave the added touch to the room that it needed. Mark had a wonderful time socializing and dancing with his friends and at the end of the night we took the towers home. You do great work and I will keep you in mind for future events as I move forward.
Thank you so much for everything. The room looked wonderful and everyone had a great time. Even the cardboard stand-up figures survived and we brought them home. I’m sure it was very difficult to do the set-up in that weather. Thank you for all your effort! Ben had a great time and so did we!
The decoration at my sweet 16 was amazing. Thank you so much :]
Dori was very professional. She was always available to answer any questions that I had. Total Party is reliable and very creative. I recommend Total Party to anyone who is having a Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Everything was fabulous! The room looked so phenomenal! The centerpieces were so gorgeous! The candle lighting board was a sensation! The balloons were the prettiest I have ever seen! Even better than I expected! I don’t anticipate another big party until my young daughter’s Sweet 16 in 3 years, but I hope we can work together again then, if not sooner. Thanks again.
