Mary Kay and Jim’s New Year’s Eve Party


Sabrina was absolutely wonderful to work with…and her ideas and creativity made our event truly special. 

We celebrated our wedding anniversary, my husband’s 50th birthday party and New Year’s Eve all in one night at the Hotel Del Coronado. Sabrina went beyond my expectations and wildest dreams to deliver a beautiful party that was our style! 

I will be seeing her again soon as many people at the party wanted her info for their upcoming events!

Gala In The Garden 2011

Dear Sabrina,
We want to thank you for all you did for the Gala, once again, and for being such a pleasure to work with.
Your list of tasks is long, and you handle everything so calmly. Thank you for all the many floor plans you created, always willingly adjusting as our plans changed. We appreciate you fielding all the many questions and requests during setup.
We missed you the day of the Gala [I worked at a wedding], but we are thankful for Adrienne [La Dolce Idea’s on-site coordinator at the event] who did a very fine job. Thank you for introducing her to us.
Thank you for everything!
Jim Ruecker, Gala Chair

It’s a joy to work with you! Thanks so much!

Thank you soooo much Sabrina! I loved everything you did for Isabella’s Gift!

You have a talent for organization and for detail. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making it smooth for me and my guests! You helped us raise over $30,000 for Rady Children’s Hospital cancer care unit.

Thank you again!

TSE Starts Here Sponsors & Committee,

What an amazing week it’s been at The Special Event Show. I had the opportunity to attend every event all week, and the best part was hearing all of the great comments about TSE Starts Here! Here are just a few:

  • Flawless
  • One of the best TSE Starts Here I’ve ever been to
  • That was the best party all week
  • WOW


Sabrina, Sharon and Nahid: You were beautiful hostesses and a great team. Thanks so much for all your hard work. What a gift to work with such talented women who brought so many great ideas to make for an event that flowed beautifully.


It was an amazing experience for me professionally and personally and I look forward to working with each of you again.
