Rob Vidra and his team did a fabulous job for our Corporate Event! The food was delicious, the decor amazing and I didn't have to worry about a thing. It was all taken care of. We went through an extensive meeting process to ensure that no stone was left unturned. I don't know what I would have done without their expertise. Our event was a huge success, thanks to Simply Elegant.

After speaking with a number of other caterers, we were referred to Simply Elegant by the catering consultant at SAIT. It's great to hear other industry members make such impromtu referrals and Peter was fantastic to work with. He understood the scope of our event, our guests, and worked to make every detail a simple one. The onsite staff were efficient and very helpful. Set up and tear down was very well executed and the food was delicious. They dealt with a small prep and service area and delivered a great experience.In an industry with mandatory auto gratuities, Simply Elegant leaves that up to the client based on service received. This is a group that deserves over and above.

We selected Simply Elegant as our caterers for a cocktail function of 250 people. They were flawless. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent and they were a "one stop shop" for us taking care of linens, table rentals, alcohol, etc. We are a non-profit and they worked within our budget which we greatly appreciated. They were flexible with changes and were extremely professional throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend them for an event of any size.

We tried the new corporate catering menu for our office lunch meeting yesterday. The guys really enjoyed the new sandwiches! We tried the Pulled Chicken Pesto, Smoked Turkey and Shaved Roast Beef with a side of the Orzo Roasted Vegetable salad. Even my really fussy guys enjoyed it! One of the guys even said the pesto chicken was his new favorite sandwich. I personally got to enjoy some of the orzo salad and half of a vegetarian sandwich; I’m not sure how you made that grilled tomato so delicious but it was juicy and oh so good!! Just thought I’d let you know we really enjoyed it 🙂 We will be ordering for our corporate lunch again soon!

Organizing my first fundraiser with 250 people in attendance could have been daunting, but not with the team at Simply Elegant by my side. Peter was an absolute joy to work with, as he has the experience to know exactly how an event can function flawlessly. I also worked with Sharon on decor. I showed her one picture of the flower arrangements I wanted and she delivered precisely. I could not have been more pleased. The fundraiser was May 27th, 2017 and went off without a glitch. The food...the service...the energy...it was all exquisite. I would work with Simply Elegant again and again and again!! Simply Excellent! 🙂

As the Event Coordinator for our company, I have had the honor and privilege of working with the incredible staff at Simply Elegant on a number of occasions.

I contacted Simply Elegant to cater a home cocktail party for us and their service was excellent! They emailed a sample menu based on our budget and it was perfect. They came and set everything up and explained each dish to us and then came back the following Monday to pick up their dish ware. Our guests were also impressed and many asked which catering company we had used.
We would definitely book with Simply Elegant for future events and would recommend them to others !

The entire team is FANTASTIC! We hired Simply Elegant for our Winter Celebration party at Skyview (amazing venue). Jade, Peter and Sharon took our vision of a New Orleans theme and nailed it - from the décor, drinks, food, performers...we all felt like we were transported there. I was impressed at the type of décor they had access to. We came to SE on very short notice. They had about 1.5 months to build out the concept and arrange for items to be shipped from the US and elsewhere. Of course, we were also on a tight budget. Peter and Sharon kept us on track and they're true experts and lovely humans to have by your side as you manage your event. Our event lead for the night of knew what to anticipate and responded to any needs immediately. The team is very professional and accommodates your needs without hesitance. I highly recommend SE for your next event.

Sharon Barwick is an instructor for the Wedding and Social Events Planning certificate at MRU, and there couldn't be a more suited industry giant to teach and to learn from. She personally connects with every student, is very honest and a clear communicator. Her creativity is beyond measure.

I had Sharon Barwick as an Instructor at Mount Royal University in the Event Management Certificate. She was very open and honest about her experience with the class. She really cares about her students and in turn her clients. She has had many roles in the event industry that makes her a wealth of knowledge. I will be recommending Simply Elegant in the future!

I recently took a course at MRU taught by Sharon Barwick, Director of Special Events at Simply Elegant. Her level of expertise and knowledge of the events industry was invaluable to myself and others in the class. Her years of experience in the industry and first hand knowledge of every area in the event planning world far surpassed any textbook I would have found on the subject. I am grateful I had the chance to learn from someone as passionate and skilled in her career as Sharon. I have no doubt who I will be calling for any events/parties in my future.

Simply Elegant is indisputably the best event managing service in Calgary. Simply Elegant was suggested to us from Norton Rose LLP's marketing department and after initial contact with Simply Elegant, within a day I received a phone call and I was swept away with their proposal. As the VP Finance and Facilities for the Alberta Student Energy Conference (ASEC) 2013 we had unique and specific requests and Simply Elegant was able to provide all we requested and more. They went above and beyond their scope continuously thinking of new and innovative ideas to ensure our event was successful. They are amazing people to work with and are the best communicators. Not only do they reply in a timely manner, but also give concise and thorough details.The Alberta Student Energy Conference is a professional development and recruitment seminar and was held at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre on March 1st, 2013. Due to the nature of the conference a lot of the decision making was needed to be completed near the date of the conference and Simply Elegant was always readily available to us and we never had to worry about them! We will never forget the moment the doors to ASEC was opened. It was breathtaking. Our sponsors were extremely pleased. We couldn't have asked for anything more.A huge thank you to Sharon and Jil from Simply Elegant.Simply Elegant was the best decision we made.

We chose Simply Elegant to provide decor for our corporate Christmas Party in December 2012 at Mercato Restaurant, and cannot say enough about how they transformed the venue. From just the initial phone call, Sharon immediately grasped the feel we wanted for the event, and provided an endless array of ideas to create the look. Sharon and her team executed every last detail as discussed, and finalized the look on time and within budget. They made our party elegant, classy, and inviting. All of our guests raved about the decor. For anyone, personal or corporate, looking for a great team to assist with their event planning, I would highly recommend Simply Elegant be the company you call for all of your event planning needs.Erin Hunley, Rayne Capital
