Testimonials

Here are some of the wonderful reviews we have received from our clients. Some had a Wedding, others a Birthday party, Shower, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Anniversary party, Backyard BBQ or a Corporate party but they all had some “extra hands”.

We thank each and every one and look forward to continued events together.

I can’t say enough about Allison, Mia and Kenny.  They were all so helpful, so professional and utterly lovely people to have in our home, helping out.  

They came in, calm and organized and ready to work.  They were thorough in checking about details, timing, my wants/needs. Throughout the party, the tended our guest graciously.  

They were attentive to the little things;  noticing when I was holding a hostess gift and offering to take it inside, noticing I was without a drink (too busy talking) and offering to bring me one.  And cleanup!  How wonderful to have the food packed away, kitchen cleaning and trash tidied up.  

We will definitely use your services again and recommend your company to friends.

Everything was wonderful!  Holly served and displayed all the food beautifully.  My kitchen was spotless and all the leftovers were put away.  I don't even remember telling her where to find the Tupperware.  Having her working behind the scenes allowed me to visit with everyone and enjoy myself.  I can't thank you enough.  The services you provide are priceless!  You can count on me to be repeat customer and to recommend your business.

I wanted to f/u on my experience with Extra Hands. In the past, when entertaining, my husband and I have done everything by ourselves. A friend recommended you and I called you last minute never thinking it would work out but boy did it ever! What a difference Jennifer made. She was awesome. Every time I turned around, she was picking up or getting more food ready to put out. When she left, the kitchen was spotless. It made for a much easier clean up at the end of the night. My husband and I really got to enjoy ourselves.  Anyway, I know I will never throw a party again without using extra hands.

Gigi and her staff are the best. We had a small DIY wedding that ended up with 50+ guests in our friends' backyard. The "extra hands" (Jennifer and Heidi) were wonderful. They arrived on time and managed the delivery and review of all the catered items so we didn't have to deal with that. They made suggestions based on their experience on when to serve what items, remove, freshen and bring on next course. They took care of everything and were there without being obtrusive. And best of all, when the event was over the grounds and kitchen - everywhere - was SPOTLESSLY clean! Just amazing. They delivered all I expected and more! I will use Extra Hands for Your Events in the future and would HIGHLY recommend Gigi and her staff.

The ladies were wonderful.  I got to socialize and participate with my guest more than I ever have before.  It was great for my guests also.  Being from a very ethnic heritage, many of my female relatives would be ready to pitch in.  we were able to be ladies of leisure.  It was wonderful.  It’s Extra Hands for our future events.

I want to thank Gigi Halsing and her wonderful staff for setting up, serving, and clearing up from an insanely overambitious wedding meal.  I cannot imagine how we could have survived the evening, never mind making it a marvelous success without Extra Hands.   We had 250 guests for an elegant wedding at a rustic summer camp. As the mother of the bride, I decided to provide all our own food and drink. GIgi and her staff set up all the tables and food beautifully  They kept the food and drink stocked and replenished. They also handled all the minor crises without my even knowing about it.
On top of all that, the price was very reasonable. Gigi was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would (and will) use her services again.

Thank you so very much...Holly was EXCELLENT!
She was just what we hoped for and I was so grateful that she was able to jump right in and assist us in ways we didn't even know we needed.
Everyone remarked at how wonderful she was and how attentive.

Everything was excellent. The girls completely took over and I enjoyed the party. Best part - they cleaned up everything and packed it all up. They were all so friendly and outgoing. The best decision I made was using Extra Hands. Can't wait to throw my next party!

I just wanted to thank you for sending such a wonderful person!  Margaret was so helpful and great to work with - nothing was too much for her! She picked up on the kosher aspect of my kitchen and was very respectful and careful of what she was doing! Best of all, she really allowed me to enjoy my party! "I will recommend you to anyone who will listen!!

If you have an upcoming event, I recommend hiring Gigi. She is fantastic! She took care of everything and was such a help I really can't say enough good things about her folks! usually I handle my own parties but now, I wouldn't have any event without Gigi. She makes the day stress free!!

A Big Thanks! for the staff from Extra Hands for Your Event who helped at our annual summer party/graduation party. It was fantastic. They were attentive to every detail, kept things moving and made sure my sister and I had the time with the 200 guests. Thanks to Renee and Laura and of course to Gigi Halsing for providing such a great service.

Extra Hands was a breeze to work with and having help for my husband's surprise Birthday made all the difference in the world. Being an event planner, you can imagine that I'm pretty detail oriented and particular. Margaret had great professionalism and jumped right in and made all the difference in helping the party run smoothly.

Gigi and her team were lifesavers! They came in on short notice, relieving my stress from the first reassuring phone call. They were willing to tackle new challenges (in our case, making crepes over a propane stove in the woods) with humor and competence!  I can't thank them enough.

Thanks to you and your staff for making our annual Holiday Party not only a HUGE success but also such a low stress event for us. As a company that does events for other people I am incredibly particular about who we hire for our events and I believe we set high but attainable standards for our vendors. You did not meet my expectations you far exceeded them. You and your staff really seemed to love what you were doing and I could not have asked for a better crew".

I can't say enough how great it was to have Extra Hands do the service and bartending for our wedding. Since I was doing a lot of things DIY, I was nervous about everything turning out well. Not only did you answer all my questions to put my mind at ease, but you offered a lot of other information that I wouldn't have thought of. Also, you were the only vendor I worked with who answered or returned my calls promptly!  The day of the event, everything went so smoothly and was done exactly how we discussed. I am so pleased with the service you provided.
