"I simply cannot say enough great things about Alix. She is bright, thorough, responsive, creative, ethical, and just lovely to work with. She listened to my vision and then set about executing it. What I felt made her so effective is that she obviously and infectiously loves party planning and making the décor and feel of the event just right, but she’s also tough and levelheaded enough to focus on important details. She also made unusually creative suggestions and was very respectful about staying within my budget, sharing what were “high impact” items and what was not. She has impeccable taste, but her goal is to plan the party you want, not the party she wants. Most importantly, she was incredibly patient and helped me come to decisions about a whole bunch of details that I would have spent way too much time spinning my wheels about if I had tried to go it alone. Because she plans all kinds of events and has a wealth of knowledge about Manhattan and Brooklyn venues and vendors, you can’t go wrong working with her."

"I cannot tell you how grateful we are for your work on our NYC Child Protective Specialist Appreciation Week. From the very first time we talked, you have been so full of energy and creativity, and you’ve been a true partner from the get-go. I know we didn’t always make it easy, but you were always right there with us, figuring out solutions and staying focused on our goal. You are so smart, strategic, creative, collaborative, and dedicated. I can’t believe how lucky we are that we found you and got to work on this with you. Because of your vision and your work, yesterday’s event was a huge success and surpassed even our wildest expectations. That simply wouldn’t have happened without you. You have to tell us what we can do to help you get whatever kind of work you want with other city agencies or nonprofits. You’re brilliant, and we’re in your debt. Truly, thank you so much, Alix."

"Thank you for making our Bat Mitzvah celebrations magical events! Not only did you help us put together uniquely beautiful and tasteful celebrations, but you saved us money in a number of instances and kept us within budget--no small feat in NYC! On top of all of that, you made the process of putting these events together relatively painless and, at times, downright fun. Your creativity was inspiring and I love how you worked to realize our vision! I couldn't have done it without you!"
“We are so pleased with the overwhelming success of our gala and benefit concert.

"Talia's bat mitzvah was amazing! Every detail, every vendor was just right. It was such a special evening, we could not have asked for anything more! Her friends are still talking about it. Thank you, Alix!

"Alexandra worked with us to help create two fantastic events to celebrate my son's Bar Mitzvah. Everyone loved it all! Alix has impeccable taste and pulled together a great team to create a seamless day that was incredibly fun to be a part of, visually beautiful, and in keeping with our vision of what we wanted it to feel like. She was very enthusiastic about including our son's artwork and the content of his Mitzvah project. The Kiddush luncheon, which was beautifully and tastefully outfitted, was followed by an evening celebration that blew the doors off. The feedback from our friends has been incredible, with many commenting on the dancing, the great vibe, and the seamless feel to the night. Alix figured out the right way to transform the space into something highly celebratory, unique, and special. Thank you, Alix, for all of the work and energy you poured into creating a joyful and dynamic evening. The Bar Mitzvah boy was totally thrilled by it all. What a day!"
"...Amazing attention was given to every detail. I was wowed by the beauty and artistry of the tables and decor. Each minute of the event was carefully planned. The food was exquisite...from the hors d'oeuvres to the desserts. The entertainment was perfect."
"I love love love Alix. She planned the most incredible B'nai Mitzvah for our boy/girl twins. Alix is the classiest lady - the Grace Kelly of party planners. She has impeccable taste, is super-creative, and every vendor she recommended was excellent and lovely to work with. Alix was completely respectful of our budget and made great suggestions as to what was worth spending money on and where we could save money. My husband, who does not throw around compliments, said to me, 'The best thing you did is hire this woman.'
She did everything - I am a working mom and don't have the time, nor do I like doing this kind of thing. She is unique in that she is amazing at both having an overall creative vision for the party, but also coming up with and executing on a million details that make the party special. When you work with Alix, you really feel that she takes pride in doing an excellent job and cares about things coming out perfectly for your family. I cannot recommend her enough!"

"Wow! What an amazing evening. Ashley's bat mitzvah was beyond our expectations. You took it from a twinkle in her eye to our dream event. I loved how you worked with me on curating every aspect of the event, down to the smallest details. You were a terrific partner. I couldn't have done it without you, Alexandra. Ashley is over the moon happy with the way the party turned out. Her friends say that it was THE BEST BAT MITZVAH EVER. Thanks a million. Xxoo"
"Alexandra did a beautiful job organizing my dinner party for 60. She worked with me to come up with a color scheme, suggested a brilliant caterer and florist, and brought a creative flair to the decor that I never would've achieved on my own. She was absolutely tireless about getting every detail right, which took all the stress off me. She was a pleasure to work with, and I recommend her highly."
