"Thanks to Lauren and Ivana from Party Planz Productions… from the first moment we met I felt so comfortable with each of them… they each had great ideas for creating special moments for the night! From designing our invitations, which was not easy when you have boy/girl twins to securing the best prices from all the vendors, they handled it all. They were easy to work with and always listened when I needed them… They made my life easier and got me through an extremely stressful time. Lauren and Ivana worked with us to stay within our budget! Whether you are doing an ultra high end or very low budget affair, Lauren and Ivana will do it right… make it personalized and special for you and your child/children."

"What a GREAT night!!! I highly recommend them!"

"I interviewed many event planners for my daughters b'nai mitzvah and they all had the same approach. Once I met with Lauren & Ivana, I knew they were for us. We loved their approachable and accessible demeanor. They are extremely creative and customized every aspect of the decor to my two daughters, who have very different personalities :). The decor was both sophisticated and playful. We received so many compliments from very discerning NYC guests."

"Party Planz exceeded expectations! I would definitely work with them again."

"They helped us plan, coordinate and execute our Alabama BBQ-themed wedding party…all while 1,000 miles apart! We celebrated our wedding with a live band/BBQ in an outdoor park in Rye Brook, New York and needed to plan it from Birmingham, Alabama, so we relied on Party Planz for A LOT. From broad ideas to minute details, their suggestions were always creative and thoughtful. Our guests (and we) were thrilled with the event! Lauren and Ivana were incredibly responsive to any questions or concerns we had along the way and they always kept their eye on what WE wanted. If we ever have a second wedding, we won’t do it without Lauren and Ivana! :-)"

"We enthusiastically recommend Lauren and Ivana at Party Planz!!!"

"Working with Party Planz was truly a pleasure every step of the way! From the first moment I met with Ivana and Lauren they worked tirelessly to help me create, and execute, a vision for my son's bar mitzvah. Most importantly, they were always careful to integrate my son's thoughts and ideas into the plans in order to make it truly HIS event.
Having never planned an event of this magnitude, they walked me (and the whole family) through step-by-step. They were always mindful of the balance between providing an "amazing bar mitzvah" and not breaking the bank.
While they brought most of their vendors to the table and I didn't have to do a thing, they also met seamlessly with, and established working relationships with, outside vendors such as the party space manager, and the MC company which they had not worked with before.
As we continued to work through the planning process, there were a significant amount of moving parts and pieces; not inconsequential was all of the follow-through which they were always on top of. When we were met by an obstacle with the furniture rental, they worked behind the scenes and produced an even better solution and product for the same money!"

"Lauren & Ivana planned my son's bar mitzvah meticulously with my family's specific needs in mind. My son's request for the event to be environmentally conscious, my passion for modern simplicity and budget limitations…they seamlessly put it all together (from across the country). They truly created understated elegance in a sustainable way. Our son’s special day reflected our families values and we couldn’t recommend Party Planz more."

"Party Planz knows how to rise to a challenge!"

"Lauren & Ivana were able to execute beautifully and were on point with everything we wanted for our daughter’s bat mitzvah. They had great vision, were extremely responsive and were able to help us plan exactly what we wanted for both a big celebration as well as an adult luncheon after our service. There is no question that we would use the services of Party Planz for other events. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for top quality event planning."

"Our experience with Party Planz was excellent from beginning to end."

"Planning Zach’s Bar Mitzvah celebration was a warm, easy, fun and inclusive experience, beginning the very first time we met with Lauren and Ivana. Their focus was always on what HE wanted, and to bring Zach’s ideas to life in the most creative and organic way. There was never a cookie-cutter plan, but rather an ongoing creative process that reflected not only Lauren and Ivana’s attention to every detail, but also their remarkable talent for imagining and designing a space (as well as all the “extras”) that make a great party. Never was there pressure to spend or do more than we were comfortable, and Lauren and Ivana’s generosity of time, spirit and kindness was, and is, extraordinary. 

I have recommended Party Planz to many friends during and since, and they also have been thrilled with their experiences. From small parties with almost no decor to huge extravaganzas, each family was treated with the same attention and each event was unique and special. I can’t recommend them highly enough. "
