Brynne and her team were amazing to work with. Everything ran smoothly on our end and we were thanked many times for such a great time. People were talking about it the week after and still are! That says everything right there! Brynne took the time to think of all of the details (there were things that we did not think of), communicate with us about all of our questions and concerns, and got everything set up the way we wished it to be. Every time we saw Brynne or her team on the day of the party, they had a smile on their face and always asked how we were doing.
She handled everything and made it so that we were able to mingle with our guests and enjoy the celebration without wondering what was going on elsewhere. We did not have to worry about anything the entire day and clean up was done so quickly by Brynne and her team, we could not have asked for a better team.

I hired Brynne and Pop Color Events to help me with the day of my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. After working with a different event planner for my son’s Bar Mitzvah, I was skeptical and pretty negative on the help that I would actually receive. I was blown away by Brynne’s organization, assistance and calm demeanor during the week of finalizing details to the day of the event!  I had many details and personal “props” to display for my 200 guests. I filled two SUVs with materials for the party! Along with verbal reassurance that everything would go smoothly, what really helped me calm down and put the reigns in Pop Color’s hands was Brynne’s hands-on approach. She attended the meeting I had with the DJ, she attended the meeting I had with the venue sales and event managers, she assisted me with the unloading of my personal party items, and she spent hours making a detailed inventory list of everything to be sure she not only knew where everything was, but also the inventory was complete. Her actions, more than her words showed that she truly had the party under control. Whether you hire an event planner to help with all of the details or just would like help with the day events, make sure you ask these very important questions: 1) do you attend meetings with some of my vendors and if so, which vendors? 2) how do you organize and will you assist with whatever personal items I have for party (e.g., candlelighting poems, candy bar items, place cards, etc.) and 3) what time will you arrive the day of the party? If the answer to the first question is “no” or the answer to the last question is “an hour before the party begins”, find another planner!  Brynne with Pop Color Events is a complete service from start to finish that will allow you to truly enjoy your guests and the day you’ve spent months (or years) planning!

Brynne knew the answers to my questions before I even asked them. She had an amazing spreadsheet to keep me organized for invitations, guest lists, hotel reservations, gifts and thank you notes etc. She reviewed all of our contracts and caught details that I didn’t and helped us avoid some potential issues. On the night of my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, I didn’t have to worry about anything and knew that Brynne and her assistant were available for any issues. For instance, my son lost a button on his jacket during pictures and we could fix it immediately. The MC at one point got a little off schedule and Brynne made sure that everything else flowed easily through the evening. No one noticed but us.

Thank you so much for all the hard work, creativity, and dedication you put into this event. Your role made a big difference for all of us, but especially for Lilly! She really feels comfortable with you and trusts your judgement (more than ours!).

Brynne is amazingly organized and patient. She knows what makes a party run, and does her best to make it run smoothly for the host and the vendors. We had a pretty particular vision for how we wanted the night to go and she kept that in mind throughout the planning and made sure that we stayed true to it. The party was fantastic — it was everything we could have asked for — and Brynne helped make that happen.

I didn’t know it was possible to hire an event coordinator to just get you across the finish line in the month before the event – and that was EXACTLY what I needed. I honestly don’t know how I could have survived the last month without Brynne’s help. I tend to be a “control freak,” but recognized that I would be better off letting Brynne take the wheel. She was beyond conscientious – thinking of things I would not have thought of. She helped me make my vision a reality. Everything was ready by Thursday night, and delivered to the venue by Friday afternoon. I was able to relax and enjoy time with family on Friday night, get a good night’s sleep, and just focus on enjoying the Bar Mitzvah experience without worry. I feel like it was a 100% success, due in no small part to Brynne’s help. For the very reasonable price, it was worth every penny!

I didn’t worry about anything, I knew Brynne had it under control. I thought everything looked great, everything went smoothly, and I just relaxed and had fun. Brynne was easy to work with, had creative ideas, listened to what we wanted, and made it happen!
