Are you having a Special Party or Special Event coming up?
Out of time and energy to do everything yourself?
Tired of all the Prep?
Being in the kitchen the whole time?

Friends and Family are Great to Offer - but you don't want to put your GUESTS to work!
Teenagers may be cheap (or free), but they can be unreliable and need constant supervision.....who needs the headache?!
Wish there were a way to make it Easier, More Fun for You, and Painless?

First time clients who have used our services say they will NEVER do a party without us again!
(I am happy to provide references)
We do Corporate Events, Private/In-Your Home, or Any other Location where you can have a Party!) events year-round

Make It Special Events-
The Party Service (Waitstaff and Bartenders) and Event Coordination Specialists

Hopefully, I can answer some questions you may have about Party Service:
You actually CAN have that party you always wanted - with a little help from Make It Special Events!

My name is LAURIE WITTGES, I am the Owner of Make It Special Events.
I started this business because I saw a need - my customers just needed help with their parties & events - not neccesarily with the Food (but we can help with that too!)
-Taking over in the kitchen, putting food on platters and in bowls - all the last minute preparations and getting everything set-up and ready (so you can take your time getting dressed!)
-Making sure food is full and looks nice throughout the party, clean up garbage & dirty dishes and glassware, making sure your guests are looked after
- Best of All - doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen! (most people say this service alone is worth t!)

I have been in the industry 30+ years. I have worked for some of the most prestigious caterers & hotels, as well as run my own event coordination business. I am well-versed in corparate events and tradeshows, as well as all types of private events for any occasion.

I am creative, inventive, and adaptable - I can help you add that Special Touch (customize your drink selection, help you create a delicious menu, decor, even give you "shortcuts" or find special items)

You may ask:
What about the Food? Where can I get it? Who makes it?
-Some of my clients like to make/cook their own food, and some want to order takeout Catering from local markets or restaurants that cater, but don't have staff

-You provide the food and drinks (I can help you plan a menu and find sources for the food if you need help with that) -- We do Everything Else!

-If you are cooking yourself, but wish you had an extra pair of hands to help - I can do that too! (Sous Chef type work)

-We can do prep work, setting tables, help with decorating, display platters and trays, last minute food prep like heating appetizers, toss the salad or sauteeing vegetables, warming sauces, cutting desserts - we customize our service to your menu and your needs :) Please dicuss your needs with me in advance so that I make sure you have the correct staff for what you need
