Our Clients Say…
  • Happy Hour Hostess is wonderful!! In fact, after organizing my son’s graduation party, I have asked Carrie to be my “sister wife!” She is that fabulous! I contacted her because I wanted to be a guest at one of our parties for once instead of running around and not getting to enjoy the party. Carrie handled everything. She contacted the food truck (her idea and a huge hit!), the Mexican restaurant for our son’s favorite dish, did all the decorations, helped me with invites, set up, made sure my guests had everything they needed and basically made it the best party we ever have thrown! My son was thrilled and so were we. Since then, I have contacted Carrie on a smaller scale, to make invites to my daughter’s project runway birthday party. She did the custom invites, backstage passes, banners to hang about, signs for our food and of course the famous and can’t live without water bottle labels! Again, another successful party due to The Happy Hour Hostess!

  • Our official wedding planning did not begin until we hired Happy Hour Hostess. Referred to us from a friend who had previously worked with Carrie, she was one of the best decisions we made during the process. When she arrived 9 months before our wedding to pitch her services, it was impossible to find a reason not to hire her. Her enthusiasm was contagious, she really listened to what we wanted, and she was already prepared with a number of ideas.

    Throughout the process Carrie allowed us to be engaged in decision making as much or little as we preferred. Because she truly understood what we wanted, she was able to make important design or planning changes without us, but was also happy to give us time and guidance for the decisions we wanted to make.

    She had already developed and maintained great relationships with a number of food and rental vendors and was able to manage those relationships easily. Carrie was also a constant source for creative ideas for decorations, menus, guest gifts and ceremony structure and she really made our wedding ideas come to life. When the weather impacted our beach wedding at the last minute, she was able to jump in and make arrangements for an alternate ceremony location. Carrie was also able to seamlessly integrate into our personal lives. She was present at each of our wedding events and interacted with our family and friends as if they were her own.

    We had always been told that weddings were extremely stressful, time-consuming events but Carrie managed to transform the experience into something that was fun and easy with an endless list of options and ideas. We had an absolutely beautiful and amazing wedding weekend and we cannot thank Carrie and Happy Hour Hostess enough.

  • Carrie has done two different parties for us – graduation and retirement – and came up with great ideas for each event. I really appreciated the personalized service and how she worked to include the small touches that made each event special. The day of each event, she was very organized and work diligently to make sure everything was set up just right. At the graduation party, we included the HHH photo booth – so much fun and perfect souvenirs for the night. I would definitely recommend HHH for all your party planning needs!
