"UnameIt Event Planning really came through! The vibe created by the décor and thoughtful personal touches were outstanding. My mother can not stop talking about her 60th Birthday Celebration. She says it was the best birthday celebration she's ever had. Thank you for all that you do.
"U Name It Event Planning has been an integral part of my Business, the Non Profit that I run, and my Personal family activities. Nora O'Garro and her team have consistently delivered a level of service and a value proposition that is matched by few event planners in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area or throughout the State of Texas. I have used the company for a wide variety of events over the years and they have ALWAYS exceeded my expectations and NEVER disappointed me, my family or my employees. I recommend them HIGHLY!
"I used U Name it Events to plan my daughter's 13th birthday party and received phenomenal service! Mrs. Nora O'Garro came up with the theme, provided the decorations, and catered. The event was done in a timely manner, which was very important because I had other obligations! The party attendees where impressed and inquired of using U Name It Events for their future events. Most importantly my daughter and her friends had a blast. I highly recommend U Name It Events!"
Where do I begin to show my gratitude towards such an amazing and memorable event you planned for my parents, Joe & Mary Sellers 50th Wedding Anniversary. We have had so many compliments on the food and service. The food, of course, was wonderful, but the service was spectacular. The elegance of the table settings made the whole evening seem special. I have been to other weddings anniversaries and nothing was even close to the ambiance you were able to achieve.
Thank you for sharing your time and talent helping me and my brother plan Dad’s and Mom’s 50th anniversary. You and Mewenda, as well as other family members were extremely efficient, courteous and professional and ensured that every last detail was absolutely perfect! I would highly recommend U Name It Event Planning to anyone looking for experts in the field of catering and event planning.
