I thought the room looked absolutely beautiful. Our solid gold 50th gala was shining in gold from the table cloths to wonderful lit ice centerpieces celebrating our 50th anniversary. Your attention to detail was superb and you certainly helped us to work within our budget. I especially loved the pride you took in your work. I would not hesitate to use your creative touch and services again in the future. Thanks very much for a job well done!

Great organization to work with. I hosted a surprise baby shower for my sister-in-law and they provided some beautiful centrepieces for the party. They are really accommodating, prompt with communication, reasonable in their rates, and meticulous in their creations. I initially had some doubts but you just have to trust them to do their magic!

Kiran Fatima

I called Simply one Saturday afternoon, in desperate need of a caterer for a Tuesday meeting. Peter created a menu, presented, and delivered 100% on time! I have used them two or three times since, and each time is exactly the same! Professional, prompt and perfect! I don’t look for anyone else anymore. I always call SE!
