I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did with my mother’s memorial service last month.
It was a tough time for the whole family and you did such a wonderful job.
Throughout the entire event people kept coming up and asking me, “Who is the pregnant woman working so hard? She’s fantastic!”. I had to laugh because you were almost invisible to me, behind the scenes, making sure that people were welcomed, that the wait staff was efficient and courteous, that my house and yard were set up in such a beautiful way as to accommodate so many people, and in the end, gently prompting us to give the toast that was the final goodbye to my mother.
I didn’t have to worry about anything from start to finish. My brothers, father and I were able to enjoy our time with family and friends and celebrate my mother’s life without having to give even a passing thought as to whether or not everything was being taken care of.
From start to finish your professionalism, caring approach and eye for detail made an otherwise difficult day perfect. I look forward to working with you in the future, but under much happier circumstances!

I would highly recommend Krista of Hoopla Events for a children’s birthday party. Krista made my daughter’s 6th Birthday party a beautiful day to remember. From our first meeting Krista was highly organized and presented me with photos and thought starters that gave me a vision for the party. Krista has the ability to take an idea and turn it into a beautiful vision. She worked with me on every detail including party invitations, décor, activities, timeline, and set-up. The décor and party invitations were custom designed by Krista and turned out perfectly. Krista came through with wonderful vendors that delivered quality service including the ponies, bouncy houses, cake pop bakers, and paper crafters. I was able to enjoy the party because Krista took care of set-up and tear down so I could enjoy my guests. I can’t say enough about how Krista is organized, creative, reliable, and a dream to work with. I had several people say to me it was the best birthday party they had ever been to.
I would recommend Hoopla Events for any ‘bride to be.’ Before planning our wedding, I had no idea where to begin. Aside from buying wedding magazines and flipping through hundreds of pages to put my dreams to paper thinking I was on the right track…in all honesty the magazines only made me more confused and overwhelmed. I was so grateful for the recommendation of Hoopla Events. Krista made my entire wedding experience over-the-top gorgeous, one of a kind, stress-free and an event to be remembered for a lifetime. The moment Krista became my wedding planner, it was evident she loves what she does. Through each phone call, email and face to face visit she exuded confidence, expertise, professionalism, creativity and attention to detail. The day of our wedding- it was amazing to watch her in ‘action’-she was a wedding orchestrator…whom instead of creating beautiful music…put my ideas to work and choreographed the day of “OUR DREAMS.” Gratefully we have our wedding video and pictures to continually recapture the elegance and personalized touches our day displayed. Thank you is not enough to express my gratitude and appreciation of what Hoopla Events did for my husband and I.
In June of 08 I was in a serious motorcycle accident, and in September of that same year Krista had organized a golf tournament for me to help with medical expenses. I couldn’t believe the amount of sponsors and donation she procured in that short amount of time, it went off without a hitch. I had family and friends from as far away as California and Minnesota, and can’t tell you how many times I was asked how long Krista had been doing this? They were amazed when I said it was her first one.
I can’t tell you how much it meant to see all those people there, some I didn’t even know, in support of me. It was all thanks to Krista, I hope she knows what a great job she did.
I had the pleasure of working with Krista on a fundraising project last year – a spaghetti feed, silent auction, raffle event for a cancer patient, Dustin Doughty. The event was a huge success and exceeded my expectations.
This was my first time working with Krista and I was awe-inspired at how:
- Organized she was,
- On task to meet our deadlines,
- She coordinated the team to completion,
- She was a wonderful solicitor of donations,
- She had great attention to detail,
- Her communication style with the team, donars, and volunteers was pleasant – a good leader; and last but not least,
- She had a lot of fun putting the whole event together.
I haven’t worked around many people that are that persistent, diligent and a doer with such a nice, friendly demeanor. I joked with her and told her I was going to sign her up for the The Apprentice show because she was such a great manager of tasks during this event. She made me want to work hard for her to pull off this amazing event! I would recommend her for any and all parties, meetings, and special events; especially if you want it done first class.
