I had the opportunity of letting Monique plan my sisters’ birthday celebration in August of 2006.  Having given Monique an idea as to what I wanted for the birthday , Monique gave me a surprise of my life.  After having given Monique the idea she ran away to heights that I could have never imagined.  With the budget I had to work with, Monique worked miracles.  The decorations and other amenities were beautiful.


In the future I would definitely recommend her to others and would use her services again.


Thank you Monique

I wanted to take  time out and thank you for having me as a vendor at the 2010 Entrepreneurial ShowCase Networking Event.  I truly enjoyed myself and meeting all the other vendors.  Most of all I thank you for your great attitude and making the event a big success.  As you said on that night it is all about Networking.  I look forward to working with you again.

Dear Mrs. Monique Hutcheson,


Where do I begin?  LOL!!! I remember the day we met at the “Unveiling Bridal Show at Oliver Twist as if it were yesterday.  You noticed an anxious and bubbly bride with a lot ideas but no organization or know-how to bring it all together.  You spend countless hours planning, coordinating, and traveling down I-40 to ensure my special day was immaculate.  You and your amazing “Sparkle Team” created and event that I will never forget.  I cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done over these last few months.  I can’t believe it’s all over.  I hope that we will remain friends and keep in touch!

A 60th birthday is a milestone wished to be reached and celebrated by many.  Extensive planning and preparations by my wife and children went into making this celebration a memorable event. The occasion was greatly enhanced by the fabulous way in which Monique adorned the Church Fellowship Hall with decorations.  What a beautiful sight to see. Invited guests were greatly impressed. Long time church members remarked that in all their years at the church, they had never seen the Hall decorated in such a marvelous way!! Some wondered were they in the same Church Hall. Monique’s creativity and special attention to detail were also evident in the way she attended to all the other details of the celebration from the placing of the food to the seating of the guests.   I would highly recommend her and her services to all who would want to have a truly a memorable occasion.

Dear Monique of Sparkling Affairs,


You created a beautiful 70th Surprise Birthday party for me.  As you had the staff open the doors of the banquet hall, I was surprised to see all my family and friends there.  I was overwhelmed with tears of joy.  


The decoration of the room was out of sight.  From the gorgeous floating candle and rose centerpieces, to the covered chairs with bows, every detail was fantastic.


The table with the cake was spectacular.  I especially enjoyed how you had the cake made to look like a gift box in the same colors as the room.  Even better, the cake was delicious.


You MC’d the entire event with no problem.  Everything appeared to run as smooth as clockwork.  All my family and friends are still calling and talking about my 70th Birthday Celebration.  

When I have my next event, I will be calling Sparkling Affairs by Monique.

Great job Monique!  Thanks for creating this lasting memory!






For months, I was thinking about planning my Mom’s Surprise 70th Birthday party.  I live in a different state than my Mom and her friends.  Consequently, I was at a lost as to how to plan the party.  Someone suggested I contact Sparkling Affairs by Monique.  


The best suggestion EVER!  Monique helped me plan the event from concept to full-fledged affair and erased any worries I had.


I called Monique about 10 weeks prior to when I was thinking about having the party and gave her a general idea of what I wanted the party to look/feel like, a general theme and budget.  She improved upon my general thought and made an event my Mom, family and friends will remember!


Did I mentioned - I live in a different state than my Mom and her friends?  Planning a party in another state is not a small issue to overcome.  Monique was always easy to contact via email, text, or phone and always returned my calls promptly.  


Within one week of talking to her, she scouted out several locations and presented me with the three best options.  Within two weeks, I was locked in on a fabulous location with a date, time and menu!


There was no detail too small or overlooked.  I needed a photographer – Monique found an excellent one where I could pay on-line!  (The images the photographer produced are fantastic and make me smile whenever I look at them!)  I was anxious because although I had a head count, I didn’t know everyone’s names.  Monique figured out a seating chart.  I needed a plan of events, Monique created the program.  Monique was there for everything!


Sparkling Affairs by Monique worked the set up of the room and created an ambiance that exceeded my expectations.  Everyone talked about how beautiful the banquet room was decorated.  


The second best thing – Monique completed the whole event for me at a whopping 10% under budget!  Monique kept track of expenditures throughout the period to make sure I did not exceed the money limit – outstanding!I can’t say enough for an event planner who is able to exceed your expectations without spending all the funding allotted.  


The best thing - Sparkling Affairs created an evening that made my Mom glow and smile even weeks after the party took place.  


Thank you Monique!
