WOW!!!!! 

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.

The party was a huge success – much due to the beautiful tent and the inviting accoutrements.  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

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!

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!

Dear Larry, Todd, Mike, and the whole S.E. crew
 
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!
 
Warmly,

Dear Todd Guitar (The Chiffon Cowboy)
 
Ciao Cowboy!
 
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.
 
Sincerely,
Peter Secchia

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!
           
With pleasure,

"On behalf of the Coca-Cola Company, let me begin by saying thank you to you, and the entire SER team for the outstanding customer service on our hospitality décor and activation needs. Our 2009 Men’s Final Four National Customer Hospitality space looked amazing. We heard rave reviews on the room design, activation and all the signage.

You should know that during the course of the weekends events, I had our guests coming up to me to let me know that the weekend's hospitality events and venues was one of the most special they have had in a long time.

Thank you for your role in once again ensuring the success of an important event here at The Coca-Cola Company.

Thank you so much for all you did to help make the 2008 National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) annual summer conference in Grand Rapids a success!

Your contributions certainly helped make the conference special. Specifically, your professionalism in working with our staff is appreciated. Our guests truly enjoyed all your help with our “Sunset Beach Escape” event on Lake Michigan, and I heard many comments that the event on Monday night was extraordinary. Having so much positive feedback from our guests is a great reminder that we have much to be proud of here in Michigan!

We think we truly accomplished the goal of creating an escape for the doctors, taking them to a place that was warm and beautiful. People couldn’t stop talking about how cool everything looked, which is because of you and your great taste.
