We can not say enough about how great the wait staff and bartender were at our party. Everything they did for us was professional and everyone at the party kept asking who they were and for your number. Thanks for making our party a success. - Robert Maher, Driftwood Day Camp
Thank you so much for sending Ellen to be our wait staff for our event this past Sunday. She was WONDERFUL! She was attentive, warm, in complete control, and her presentation skills were impeccable. She brought a calming presence to our boisterous brunch, and was wonderful with the guests. I would absolutely recommend The Party Elf to a friend! Thanks again for everything! - Nivia Dougherty
I am writing to thank you for the impeccable service that was provided by Kerri and Bonni. The two ladies were excellent. Their assistance at the birthday celebration for my mother was a special touch that made the event more enjoyable. I didn't have to worry about anything. Anytime I proceeded to engage in an activity regarding serving, Bonni and Kerri jumped right in and kindly reminded me that they were at the celebration to help me. My mother expressed this morning that the two ladies were phenomenal. Thank you for coordinating a seamless process from beginning to end. - Monique Claxton
I cannot even describe in words to you how phenomenal Mike and Sean were. From the moment they got to my residence, they were eager to get started and my every wish was their command. From start to finish their service was exceptional; many guests were coming up tome at the end asking me where i found those two gems! They made my life so much easier and, by the time the night was finished, they had everything cleaned up, including tablecloths and dishes washed. They worked together very well, and never stopped moving for a minute. Everyone loved them. They became part of the family; next time they might me invited to the party instead of working it! You have two great employees representing your company and I will be sure to recommend them in the future! Thank you so much!! - Lisa Mari (and the family)
The Party Elf is the way to go if you need servers at your party. I was immensely pleased with Mike & Marie.  Extremely efficient, pleasant, courteous, reliable. Maria found her way around the kitchen easily & knew exactly what to do. Mike took control completely & was amazing! Great personality too! Many guests complimented them. They went above & beyond! I would highly recommend the Party Elf to serve at your function and leave the stress & worry behind.
Thank you for helping make my party a success! Bonnie, Michael and John were great! I would definitely recommend The Party Elf (and specifically all three of them) to anyone looking for professional, courteous and very helpful staff for a catering event. - Sofia K
Everything was phenomenal! The staff was amazing! The food was amazing! We had plenty of leftovers! Everyone enjoyed the food very much. Thank you so much! We will definitely use your services again and will recommend you to whoever we can. Thanks again - Cathy N.
Thank you Deb! Mike and Oliver were fabulous. It made such a difference having them as we were able to enjoy the party. Happy 4th. Thanks again - Jessica Miller
My BD party at the end of September was a big success, partially due to having Bonnie help out. I look forward to having "The Party Elf" here again the next time I have a big event. All the best for a Healthy, Happy New Year! - Marilyn Di Carlo-Ames
Once again, Debbie, your staff was so wonderful and efficient. We had no doubts the day would be enjoyable with The Party Elf. Thank you!! Thank you! - Ellen and Joe Boccuzi - Kira and Dan McNulty
My wife and I were happy with the service that Ellen provided. She was very friendly, attentive and did a fantastic job. We were able to enjoy the party and spend more time with friends because of Ellen. We look forward to using your services again in the future. Happy Holidays! - Andrew P.
Where to begin? Karen and Julia arrived on the dot at 5:00 and after brief introductions got right to work. We knew immediately that we were in good hands as Karen made great suggestions with buffet and took control of things -- in a good way, an assuring way, someone you would want around if you are new to entertaining.

Hors d 'oeuvres were baked perfectly and passed around in a friendly and non obtrusive way. Throughout the night, drinks were refilled, food passed, surfaces cleared and made tidy, garbage/recycles placed neatly outside. Finally major clean up and trays of food wrapped with care and put away.

My sister could not have been happier. If we could have selected who we would want in our home it would be Karen and Julia. We would welcome them back in a heart beat as either servers or guests!

Thanks and Happy New Year. - Colleen Struber
We recently had the pleasure of having Bonni and Emma waitress our 80's party for us. I cannot express how highly I recommend them for any party you are having! They made life so easy for my wife and I, gave us time to enjoy the party and our guests. They handled setting up, putting out and cleaning up everything! Bonni and Emma were simply amazing! I would highly recommend them for any party you were having! I know we will be using them again! Thank you!!! - Terence Coffey
Dear Debbie, Thank you for all your help with our party. From our first phone conversation I felt comfortable and assured that everything would be perfect and it was. Peter and Maria, our chef and waitress, were friendly and professional. The guests all raved about the food. We will definitely be in touch for our next party! - Sue (Seaford, LI)
Dear Debbie,
"I really enjoyed using Party Elf for our last party! The food was wonderful, staff extremely friendly and competent management of all the little details. I was also very impressed with the infinite menu options. I would highly recommend Party Elf for anyone's next party." - Noelle A. Pelio
I highly recommend The Party Elf if you are hosting a party. The Party Elf takes care of all of the details. Their bbq chefs are amazing and innovative chefs. I hosted two parties and received compliments as follows: "This is definitely the best burger I have ever had"; "Oh my God what is in the salad dressing-- it's delicious". Deb the owner is extremely efficient and pleasant. No matter what you ask of Deb even at the last minute she finds someway to make it happen. The Party Elf is so great I recommended them to my friends and they too are extremely happy with the level of service they received from The Party Elf. - Regards, Mara

Thanks to The Party Elf for handling our multi-family picnic so well. Your griller, Ed, and your other staff all arrived early, were professional and attentive, and made sure that all guests were happy. After it started, just as you said, all we had to do was enjoy the party. Several people asked about your company and we recommended you highly. We will certainly call you again for any similar event. - Very best regards, Walter H.
Hi Debbie,

It is now two months since we held our daughter Lisa’s wedding reception luau in our backyard. We just wanted to let you know that our relatives, friends and neighbors have not stopped raving about the wonderful time they had that day. Although we are used to entertaining frequently, this was by far the best party we have ever hosted, due in large part to the very professional, thorough and courteous services provided by you and your excellent staff. You managed to fulfill your promise to us. You relieved us of much of the stress of planning and executing such an ambitious undertaking. This was a very special day for our family and we were truly able to enjoy every minute of it thanks to you and your staff. All of the service people that you supplied, from the waitresses, to the bartenders, to the valet parkers, were top-notch and treated our guests with the same warmth and respect that our guests have come to expect from Lori and I. We received and still continue to receive so many compliments from all who shared that beautiful day with us.

Of course, much of the credit also must go to the caterer you so highly recommended - Karen of Posh Palate Catering. She and her cooking staff also worked extremely well with us to select the Hawaiian menu that we were seeking and then to top it off by using such lavish and appetizing tropical displays.

Once again we thank you for your attention to detail, which assured us of a very smoothly run event. Your visits to our home in the early planning stages, as well as all your follow- up phone calls to check on the progress of the tent company, the linen supplier, the hula dancers, the DJ, etc. showed how much you cared about making this party an unforgettable affair. It goes without saying that we will most certainly be using your services again in the future and will recommend you and Karen to our family, friends and acquaintances. - With much gratitude. Lori and Mark Glatzer
Hi Debbie,
I just wanted to tell you that Fran was terrific.  We fell in love with her the second she walked in the door, and she just jumped right in and didn’t stop. Thanks so much! - Susie
We were so pleased with the way the party went and so much of it was the advanced planning and the quality of the staff. Thanks so much for a job well done. - Randie
Everything was great. Our friends praised your friendliness and your food and choices. The fact everything was spotless when you left made my day. Thank you. Thanks for a great job. - Barbara
I can't thank you enough. Nicole was perfect. She was friendly and made me feel like she was totally in control. Thank you! - Dianne D.
I just wanted to let you know the party was a great success. Once again I can not thank you enough. The food was spectacular and my guests could not stop talking about it. Ginny and Jen were the best (and I did take care of them). I can't wait for my next event. - Thanks, Phil G.
Just wanted to circle back around and tell you how fabulous everything went on Saturday. The food was delicious and Linda was amazing, as well as the bartenders. You will definitely hear from us again as we plan our next event or help friends / family plan out their own events as well. - Regards, Naz & Hermine
I cannot tell you how HAPPY I AM! Everything went on without a hitch! Pete, Tina & Linda were FANTASTIC! Everyone at the party raved about them. Absolutely fabulous. The weather cleared about two hours before the guests arrived, and a great time was had by ALL. My wife was sort of surprised since she found out about the party, but did not know when it was. A ton of our friends & family asked me where I found you, and I was more than happy to tell them. You will sure hear from me for the next party! Thanks again for a great job! - Best Regards - Bill Bresnan
I just wanted to drop you an e-mail to tell you about how thankful and happy I am after my 4th of July party. The girls were amazing and I mean it. They did not stop from the time they got there until the time they left - but I expected that already. What really was incredible was how they presented themselves while they were working and the constant smiles and upbeat personality they keep throughout the party. From the several times I asked Karen to keep starting the grill and cooking as people came later on, to Dawn helping me clean up fireworks in the street, to Jenn serving people drinks before they could even get up to need another one - they were all amazing and it made the party a great success. They are always there when you need them before you even realize that you do.

They did a fantastic job. I wanted to check Dawn to see if she had a nuclear power pack hooked up to her since her energy alone could light up a city. The appetizers were amazing - as always - and several people commented on them again. I am having a smaller gathering in late August and I will need a bartender and a server and I would request Jenn and Dawn as I will not have another party without them. They can do all my party's as far as I am concerned. And when I do need a chef/griller Karen would be great as well. - Thanks again Deb, Phil Giarraputo

I just wanted to thank you again for arranging everything for our wedding so nicely and making the lead-up to the day so much easier and less stressful for me. Joe's food was delicious! The buffet and service worked wonderfully and the staff was delightful! Organizing the whole event was so much more of a pleasure for me due to the job you and Lynn did. - Thanks again! Jody Watermeyer
Just wanted to let you know that everything went without a hitch. Your staff was timely, courteous and just too efficient and competent for words. They worked perfectly together and were so pleasant to us and our guests.

Rob and I rate the trio of Bari, John and Mary a AAA. Bravo. - Emily & Rob Bader
Just want to tell you that Bari and John were wonderful and really made the party so easy and enjoyable. They are a dynamic duo and we look forward to using them and The Party Elf in the future. I'll spread the word! Thank you again. Barbara J.
Yes, it was wonderful! Sara was so helpful and soooooooo nice too... My husband and I could not believe how great it was to be able to enjoy our guests and not worry about heating and putting out the food, as well as the clean up and set up for dessert. We were so happy to have the help and we couldn't have asked for a nicer person than Sara. Thank you, Lorraine
I just wanted to take this time to thank you again for helping make our 40th Anniversary of Woodstock Party so GROOVY!

Ginny, John and Milton were awesome. From the time they arrived to the time they left they wouldn't let me lift a finger. They had the entire party under control from cooking, plating, serving, bartending and cleanup, all the time with a good word and smiles on their faces for all. And they made it seem so effortless! All I had to do was enjoy
myself and mingle with my guests!!

I knew after speaking to you on the phone the first time that things would be taken care of, but truthfully, I had no idea that it would turn out so incredibly well. I am still getting rave reviews for everyone who was there! I recommend your services to anyone and have already started to spread the word. I won't ever have a party without you! THANKS AGAIN!! Annette P.
I wanted to give you some feedback about your waitstaff. My husband and I are very pleased with the professionalism that your company provided for us. They all were well groomed, very friendly and extremely accomodating to our needs and our guest's needs. I briefly explained what I wanted to get done, being that I had 170 guests to entertain, and they all went to work, harder than we could have ever anticipated. Their efforts truely made our party a huge success. We will and already have recommended your company and names of those 4 employees to our family and friends.

Once again, this party could have never been done without your company and employees, Thank you all very much. Sincerely, Jay and Jennifer Devers

My husband and I also wanted to comment in a separate E-Mail about 2 employees that stand out from the rest. Milton was so amazing!! Every time I turned around, he was filling ice in coolers, and taking out garbage. Also, he kept making sure that I was enjoying myself and having a good time and not stressing out for the party. Anything I needed he ran to get or help with.

Also Donna gave my husband a break on the grills and cooked for him, which was NOT in her job description. (I guess she felt bad that he was there for hours). Either way, he was VERY happy to get a break and said that she cooked the burgers better than he could. She also made sure that the kitchen was cleaned and things were washed and put away.

Just thought you might want to know this. Thanks Again. Jennifer Devers.
I just wanted to tell you how perfect our party went (and its all because of The Party Elf). Maria and Lana were wonderful. They were so amazing that I plan on using you for any party I have. Everything went so smoothly. They knew just how to do everything; I didn't even need to delegate. I was able to just relax and so was the rest of my family. Then when everything was all over we had basically no cleaning to do. Everything was spotless...especially the kitchen. Thank you so much! I will always recommend your company!

Sorry not to answer yesterday, I was still recovering from the weekend. Yes, the party was a success. My wife was very surprised. I was 100% satisfied with a) the party elf services, in general and b) with Sarah and
Carol, in particular.

I really appreciate your efforts and working with me so quickly and efficiently. I never doubted that everything would be covered from our first conversation. Sarah and Carol were perfect. They jumped right in the second they walked in the door. They were extremely friendly. I didn't need to do much at all. I truly enjoyed the party (which was my goal). Another great thing they did was to ensure our guests were part of the party and not working in the kitchen. There were several times when they made sure a couple of my guests were escorted from the kitchen when they were trying to help clean. They were friendly and consistent - which was perfect. I will absolutely call you again - and I will request Carol and Sarah when I do.

Thank you so much. Tim Farrell

Thank you so much for following up with me after the party to see how your staff did. John and Lana were terrific, once I told them what I needed done for the party that was held in the backyard for total of 80 guests they were right on top of everything. They were on time, dressed professional and just amazing. As you know I had three other waitstaff agencies I was working with and my final decision was you. You were very professional and just great to talk with and you really worked with me. Again I cannot express how wonderful it was working with you and how great your staff was. I truly recommend your agency to everyone and please feel free to give my contact out. As mentioned, I will use your agency again and will refer you to my friends, family and co-workers. Thanks again!!! I was really able to enjoy the party with no worries which I forgot to mention. I'm already trying to plan for another party and will keep you in mind always. Amelia Jimenez
A huge THANKS for your wonderful party helpers Carol and Yohanna. They were both so helpful, friendly and accommodating. Tim and I were able to enjoy our guests without the worry of cleaning up along the way. That was a huge bonus! Thank you for your helpful suggestions as I planned the party, too. You definitely made our party a stress-free event! Cheers, Sarona Farrell
Just want to let you know that the staff was fabulous!!! They allowed me to have the best time in my house (didn't know that was possible). Thank you and I look forward to working together again. Ricki
Just wanted to tell you how happy I was with Christine on Saturday at my daughter's Communion. My husband got back to the house before I did, but when I arrived one of the first things she told me was "I just want you to enjoy your party". And I did! She took care of everything from start to finish, and everything was clean. I would
definitely have her back- she was great!

Thanks again for fitting us in to your schedule with short notice. Christine left some cards that I am saving. Christine Martorana
Hi Deb! This is Maria Ward who booked Donna and Davinia for my party on 5/28/11.

I just wanted to say how absolutely AWESOME the girls were and I was so thankful that I had them here to help out with everything!! All of my guests said how wonderful they were too and I can't express it enough!!

They hardly let me lift a finger and as soon as I thought of something that needed to get done they were already doing it! Aside from them taking care of every last detail - they were super nice and it was a pleasure having them at my home.

I will absolutely book from you again and I will make it a point to request them personally. I appreciate all of the help you gave me as well prior to the party!

My daughter's 1st birthday party was a complete success and Donna and Davinia were such a big contributor of that. Please pass on a big thank you from me and my husband and we are very happy we can pen in your contact info for a future reference which we will most definitely use.

Thanks again!! Maria Ward

Just wanted to let you know what a WONDERFUL retirement party your staff facilitated. Friends, family, and colleagues gave rave reviews. Michelle, Laurie, and Davinia, were lovely, efficient, professional, and extremely hard-working. They did it all: set up, prep, salad-making, reheating, cocktails, serving, clean up, and even doggy bags - charming and spoiling us all throughout. From the moment they arrived, I was able to relax and spend time with my guests and there were many. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would highly recommend The Party Elf and these three phenomenal angels for any event. Thank you all for the best in-home party ever!

Warm regards, Eileen Brenner
Just wanted to say Davinia was excellent, just like you said. She was really "on" ... didn't need instructions ... knew what to do all on her own. My sister was very surprised and I think the party was a great success. I look forward to working with you again.

Thank you, Adriana
You and your team did a fantastic job! We've had a rush of compliments from guests both during and after, with very high praise for the entire event. And, many of those attending are world-class party goers, believe me. I could not be happier with the outcome.

Thank you!! Mike Reilly

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Tina was an absolute gift! She worked so hard and did a terrific job serving my family! The food was sooo delish and the desserts were divine! This was the second time you and your elves have worked your magic for us. Each time felt like we were a guest at our own doesn't get better than that!!

See you again soon! Kerry Gardner
Everything was great. We were very happy with how the party went and in particular with the services that Michelle and Maureen provided. Thank you very much and Happy New Year!
Thanks for everything. The party was great (even if it was a little bit chilly!) and my mom really enjoyed herself.  Ellen was amazing, and we couldn't have asked her to do a better job. She really was phenomenal. Also the tent guys came yesterday to take everything away, and they were really great too. We will definitely be in touch for future parties! Taryn Fitzgerald
Thank you so much for your help with our recent party (4/27/13)! It was an absolute hit!

Thanks for your great advice and help to get things planned, secure the rentals, and the like. Your team was great...Ellen took control of everything immediately upon arrival, allowing me to enjoy the company of friends which I will not see for a few years. Shari and Anthony were amazing, too. Everything was perfect. Our guests had a wonderful time!

If I can ever serve as a reference, I will! I could not have been happier with The Party Elf. Cheers, Judith Scimone
I just wanted to shoot you an email today to thank you for the incredible job Emma, Ellen, and Aly did this weekend. We really couldn't have asked for a better team. They were efficient, did exactly what we needed, and they were friendly to boot. We truly got to be guests at our own party!! We even had a number of our guests comment on how wonderful they were. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who needs servers in the future!

Thanks again for everything,
Deborah Wassel (and the very grateful Wassel family!)
People are always so quick to complain about service so I wanted to be quick about praising your grill guy Mark. He did a great job coming into my home and just taking over the kitchen and grill. Thank you ever so much Mark. The party was a great success with much credit due to Mark. He is an asset to your company and I will be sure to recommend you both.

Thank you for such great service.
Diane Breinlinger

Thank you for everything!! The day went off perfectly and your staff was wonderful! Many people, including my husband, commented on how professional the staff was.

Thank you again,
Jackie M.
I just had to write to you myself to tell you what a great experience we had working with you, from start to finish. Your calm attitude was something that I really appreciated, and you just always seemed to have everything under control. The staff you sent to help us for our party was spectacular; their discretion and friendliness made the party run so smoothly and are why people had so much fun. Thank you for helping us
create a really special night!

Sincerely, Gail Schwartz :)
Thank you so much for employing capable professionals. I was totally pleased with Linda and Donna. I happily offer myself as a reference.
Fran Skalet
Thanks so much for a perfect day! The food was great and the service was excellent!
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help planning the 75th birthday party for our mom! Felix the limo driver was fabulous! Rosann was amazing --she set the perfect tone and took care of everything so we could focus on each other! Wonderful memories were made which was the greatest gift!
Thank you!
Warmly, Laureen
Just wanted you to know that Lisa and Maryann were both wonderful! They were on time, professional, friendly, efficient and very thorough. They made my day very enjoyable. My guests were equally impressed with both ladies. Thank you again for helping me out in a jam. I will definitely give you a call for my next party ;-)

Mary T
Once again - a great party with a wonderful helper who would do anything to keep things moving with perfect timing. No stress and no worries!!!!
Thank you, Debbie and staff! All the best,
Ellen and Joe B.
Debbie - just wanted to thank you for sending Dana - she was FANTASTIC! Everything flowed smoothly - I never had to ask for anything - she was just pleasant and awesome to work with and on top of every little thing - I would never have been able to enjoy the party if I didn't have her.
Thank you again for everything! Mikey Day! was so beyond my vision, it was just so amazing. Everyone was in awe and just had a wonderful time celebrating my boy. It was so great to have so much help to plan this very special tribute for my hubby. Family, friends, co-workers, neighbors all will remember this event always. I have texts, calls, stop bys to tell me how great a time everyone had here.

People have asked me who helped me with the party planning so I have given your name. You may see some referrals in the future when people staring planning their events. I will definitely recommend you!

Thanks again!, Liz
