Testimonials

“I just wanted to pass along a big thank you for your assistance with making our wedding brunch a complete success. The equipment was in excellent shape and worked with no problems. I found your brochure very helpful and it gave me items to rent that I had not thought of using to make our guests comfortable. People loved the use of utensils, the cloth napkins and the glass cups as our crowd was very conscious about the "green" environmental aspects and it just added the extra touch I felt it needed for this special occasion. We will pass along to others what a benefit it was to utilize your services and the next event we put on, we will definitely include your expertise!”
