"Party Reflections has been our partner in planning many of our school events, and they were the team we wanted to ensure our event was a huge success. Party Reflections handled everything from lighting, décor, rental furniture and equipment to space planning and staging. The fact that they handled everything was a huge relief and helped ensure the success of the event so we could handle the other details in inviting 6000 attendees. Party Reflections exceeded expectations in every way. The Charging Forward Campaign Launch continues to have a lasting impact on our community. We could not have done it without Party Reflections and their talented, creative and resourceful team. It was an honor to work with them."
