My husband and I used Elysian Events for our 40th birthday celebration, and they were INCREDIBLE! They were easy to work with to create a custom menu with our favorite foods, and everything was delicious! And to top it off, I think they left my kitchen cleaner than it was when they got there! I would absolutely use them again.
