Hi Melissa,
I want to thank you for making Chloe’s Bat Mitzvah such a special day.  The decorating was better than I could have imagined.  You really did an amazing job and I loved working with you!  I appreciate all  of your little finishing touches with the party planning.  I only wish that I met you earlier!!

Thanks for everything!

A Venetian Themed 50th Birthday!

This was a simply exquisite celebration  for a 50th birthday. The perfect theme: Venetian Masquerade, the perfect venue: University of the Arts Dorrance Hamilton Hall, a fabulous caterer: 12th Street Catering. We had such a fun time designing this party. I bought the masks in Venice this summer while visiting so they were “real” and just stunning. We added lots of old world touches along with gorgeous linens, breathtaking flowers and vintage furniture.

I cannot even begin to express my gratitude and appreciation to you and your staff.     The venue looked stunning and the flowers were the most amazing flowers I’ve ever seen.   The flower girl and bridesmaids bouquets were incredible.   Elizabeth’s, mine, the men, the tables were beyond my expectations.   The linens were gorgeous too.   Oh my god – and the 6 foot lit trees were amazing. I can’t even express my thanks enough.  The wedding was so much fun.   Elizabeth looked beautiful and everything went off without a hitch. 

With much appreciation,
Mother of Bride

Pomme Radnor A new location that is just what the main line needed!

We have been lucky enough to work with Peachtree & Ward Catering a couple of times at this new venue. It is such a nice addition to the Main Line offerings of venues and has the best in food and service with Jon and Lori Weinrott at the helm. We hope to return there often.

A September wedding with fabulous details and great style! The succulents and chevron pattern added the perfect touch to the muted tones of the flowers. It was simply perfect.
