The service was magnificent, the party and without doubt Melanie’s significant contribution to it, the best we have ever been to, so said our guests, even 40 year old “young” ones. The sushi bar, canapés, bowls were all perfect. Can’t wait for the 80th ! Well done and thank you to all.

Thank you Melanie’s for helping us to realise our wild ambitions and celebrate the big birthday in such style. The food was fantastic – tasty & stylish. The service was exquisite – efficient, friendly, attentive, continuous; but managing also to be unobtrusive. Melanie’s coordinated all elements of this party: the marquee and dance floor, the bar, the balloons, the band. Everybody did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it…fantastic efficiency which removed from us so many of the hassles involved in holding an event like this. The balloons were a really great idea. The band was absolutely fantastic – they got it so right and were so charming.

This last party, however, was SAVED by the Melanie’s team: they went WAY above and beyond to rescue the ambience. I am eternally grateful — Melanie’s saved the day and without them we would have never had the elegant, beautiful, fairy tale setting that my daughter so wanted. I wished that I could have paid them double. This is a company that really cares and takes care of you.
