What an incredible event last night! Talk about “raising the bar”. You didn’t miss a detail. I almost think you may have been responsible for the wonderful weather!!
I must tell you on a personal note, that I never eat at events because I am usually too busy and don’t take the time to enjoy. Last night was an exception. I ate one of everything!! I also had 2 s’mores and they were worth every calorie. But more importantly, it took many of us back to our childhood days and created great conversation around the fire pit.
The food was delicious and the presentation was superb!!
What a wonderful evening. Thank you for creating such an enjoyable experience for our members. I certainly believe you will see a return of your investment because our members were SO IMPRESSED with the venue, the food and your great hospitality.”

You are special people and we wish you and your Lowrey Group family continued success and happiness in years to come. We are thrilled we had a chance to meet you and we look forward to many evenings of fine dining at your fine restaurants.”
—Doug Miller, Island West, Bluffton, SC
The cocktail party after the Somerset HPR annual meeting, on December 30, was fabulous. Everyone raved about the food, especially the pasta station. I made sure they all knew how instrumental you were in planning the event.
We loved the extra care taken in decorating the room to give it a much more festive look than we have seen in the past; and the quality of the food seemed to have kicked up a notch, too. I suspect that the corporate philosophy of the Lowrey Group is reflected in these improvements. It is not that Catering Concepts was bad, in the past; it is more that Celebration Events is just so much better.
Please feel free to pass on my kudos to Mr. Lowrey and the rest of “management”. I am a regular patron, and a fan of, the Lowrey Group restaurants and now a definite fan of the catering arm. You were wonderful to work with, Molly, and I am sure we will be back agai next year, and for any other building party we might throw in the future.”
—Heather Wilcauskas, Secretary, Somerset HPR, Hilton Head Island, SC

—Lindy and Gregg Russell, Hilton Head Heroes, Hilton Head Island, SC
I don’t know if I can say thank you enough for everything you and the C.E. team do for us. It is such a comfort working with you and all because you really do eliminate all of the worry. I know we are not always the easiest bunch to deal with, but we do appreciate everything you all do. I am thankful Concours ’08 is past us because I’m so excited to start working with you all again on my wedding. I love working with you and Alison and enjoy your entire team. Again, thanks for your continuous and extremely generous support!”
—Lindsey Brown, HHI Concours, Hilton Head Island, SC
“Molly and Frances,
Thank you very much for the tour of your available event locations on the island. It was a huge plus to me to gain insight into your operations and perhaps how we could sort of “work off of each other”. Still being fairly new to the area, it was a great chance to broaden my knowledge of the area, as well as Celebration Event Catering. It is always a good idea to “brainstorm” other opportunities in the same locale.
I appreciate you both taking the time to show us around. Also, “waves of thanks” to Andy and Chris for the beautiful display of hors d’oeuvres they prepared for us to enjoy. Not only did we come away with some great ideas for new venues for member events, but also learned of some very creative banquet wares. It was an extremely enlightening afternoon for myself, as well as for (I’m sure Alicia and Maren).”
Thank you again for your time. Our thanks to everyone involved in the tour.
—Sandi Hardwicke, Berkeley Hall Club, Hilton Head Island, SC
Thank you, thank you for all of your help and hard work on our Presidents Dinner and wine tasting. As always it was a pleasure to work with you and your staff. Everyone complimented the event on Thursday night. It was a huge success. Thank you for your flexibility in pushing the event forward the last minute. I look forward to working with you again next year. Have a great day!”
—Heath Black, South Carolina Medical Association, Columbia, SC
On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, I want to thank you for all you did to assure the success of our March Executive Connection. I’ve heard many positive comments about the delicious culinary fare prepared by Celebration Events. You and your staff are to be commended for the delicious food, the excellent service, and for the professionalism and courtesy displayed throughout the evening. I know you went above and beyond to make this a very special event and want to know how much your efforts are appreciated.
I’m sorry I was not able to join you but do hope Executive Connection will result in some future business for Hampton Lake and Celebration Events.
Again, many thanks!”
William G. Miles, IOM, CCE, President and CEO, Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce, Hilton Head Island, SC
Thank you so much for your generous donation to Heroes! Mark gave rave reviews about the class, can’t wait to be a part of your fall classes!”

“Dear Alison and Molly,
Thank you so very much for the delicious platter of special brownies and cookies. What a nice surprice, and I can assure you they were very much enjoyed! They disappeared!! Tahnk you also for stopping by to see our new Sales Office. We are all working hard, and the extra space helps, especially for entertainihng events. We’ll keep you in mind!”
—Iris Burke and the Sales Staff, Tradtion Hilton Head, Hilton Head Island, SC
On behalf of the Coastal Discovery Museum we want to thank you for your donation to our Art Market. Your appetizers were well received and rapidly consumed by the artists.
We appreciate your support!”
—Robin Swift, Coastal Discovery Museum, Hilton Head Island, SC
Everything was absolutely wonderful! The food was delicious. I know a few of our group asked for recipes. Christian is absolutely wonderful at organizing and keeping the event flowing. He is also great at calming the planners’ nerves (mine!). And as always the staff was cordial and professional.”
—Debbie Karns, Oconee Memorial Health, Seneca, SC.
Thank you so much! The event was very successful and the food was incredible! We got great feedback from the Realtors. We picked Celebration Events for catering because we wanted a name that would stand out to the Realtors and we wanted someone we could count on for good food and professionalism. Celebration Events was the only name that came to my mind and you and your staff were nothing but great! Thanks!”
—Michelle Blakley, DR Horton, Bluffton, SC.
Well, you did it again! I have gotten more “raves” about the dinner on Friday evening than I have ever received for any of our dinners.
They LOVED the Main Street Inn and so did I. And the food was absolutely delicious! Girl, you made me look soooo good to my Board members and the physicians who were with us. We even had a member of the South Carolina State legislature and his wife dining with us and they went on and on about the food and the location.
It was so good to see you again! My boss keeps asking me how I find all these great places for dinner and I told him how helpful you have been to me. I always tell people one of the things I like so about my job is getting to meet all the nice people I come in contact with. Girl, you are at the top of my list!!”
—Betty K. Barber , Regional Medical Center, Orangeburg, SC
It was a great event and your team were fantastic.
I did not make it to one of your fine restaurants this year, but have eaten at CQ’s a number of times. Jim and I plan a long weekend later this year to come back and use our gift certificate — THANK YOU again for that and the wine.
Thanks again for everything at this year’s Heritage!”
—Kimberly Williams, Coca Cola, Charlotte, NC
“What a wonderful party! The food was scrumptious, the kitchen is fabulous, and the offices are lovely. No wonder Celebration Events is considered by most people I’ve talked with to be the best caterer in the area. Every event I’ve been to that CE catered was wonderful and this party really showed what you can do. The presentations were great, too! What a super idea to serve the crudites and dip in the little plastic glasses and avoid the messiness of dipping (and possibly double dipping). Since I’m trying to lose weight, I chose only one dessert (based on appearance) and I’m sure I chose the best — the strawberries and cheesecake cubes, another wonderful idea.”
—Ronni B. Silett, Travel Consultant, Hilton Head Island, SC
“Just a quick note to say thanks to all at The Lowery Group and Celebration Events for the invite to the opening of the new kitchen facility. We had a wonderful time, the food and drink were superb and we wish you every success!!
—Iain & Gill Gray, Hilton Head Island, SC
By the way GREAT JOB THIS WEEKEND to all of you!! Fall Fest could not have happened without all your great food and great service! Everyone did awesome!”
—Kelly Mathews, Hampton Lake, Bluffton, SC
I wanted to thank you, and the bartenders form our event last Friday at Spanish Wells! Those guys were troopers in that horrible rain! We were not able to golf, so the party was not as big as we anticipated, but we appreciate all that Celebration Events did for us, and any monies raised will be greatly appreciated!
—Darlene Schuetz, Hospice Care of the Lowcountry, Hilton Head Island, SC
“Thank you for planning such a great program today. It truly was a wonderful, lovely and delicious event!. The Chef was very special and the food was delicious.
I also enjoyed meeting Alison. She is very professional and it reflected in how the event was executed and how nice the waiters and all the staff were. Another fun and successful program.”
—Lucia, Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, SC
Tea for Tutu was amazing and only thanks to your help, flexibility and professional touches! You are one of a kind and I appreciate having all the boys there to help as well as Bonnie who was there for the event! We are so thankful to have the support of such phenomenal businesses like Celebration Events. The food was outstanding, the décor and of course the setting. We really made the entire space work for the show and some many people were impressed.
Thank you for all the time you spend meeting with me and working with the Hilton Head Dance Theatre! Pink Magazine was so thrilled by our event they have signed on for next year! We hope that many other sponsors do too!”
—Kelly Broome Smith, Charter I Commercial, Hilton Head Island, SC
I thought everything was wonderful. The food was excellent, the staff was so accomodating.
Thank you again for everything you did for May River Montessori School. It will not be forgotten!”

“Good afternoon Molly!
As always, I heard nothing but wonderful things about the dinner at Windows on the Waterway. Everyone raved about the quality of food and the menu. It was again a very successful event. I hate that I missed it but just could not get loose from the hotel.
Thank you and your staff for all of their hard work, dedication and effort. It is truly a pleasure to work with you and your staff. Have a WONDERFUL week!”
—Heather D. Black, CMP, South Carolina Medical Association, Columbia, SC
Everything was so nice, we really appreciated the party. We are still enjoying all the good food today as well. You guys are great. Best wishes!”

—Debbie Karns, Oconee Memorial Heath, Seneca, SC
I really, truly want to thank you for your guidance, your flexibility, your magician of a chef and Kellie who always so attentive, pleasant and most of all brave (the evening before ‘VIP Night’ when I doubled our head count)…this was a tricky couple of events to plan, and without your patience I would have totally nuts! The food was superb! Every one from my corporate executives, Vice Presidents, COO & partners were totally blown away by the spread…I am proud to say that we showed them how we do it Hilton Head Style.”
— Elizabeth Dwyer, Westbury Park, Bluffton, SC
Your team performed a fantastic job with the event at our home in Long Cove. The purpose of the party was to thank the United Way Campaign Cabinet for a successful drive. Through the service and attention to detail by Christian Fee and all his associates, our guests certainly knew they were special!
We have hosted or attended enough events over the years to know that the highest degree of success is make the party come off as if it took no effort. That, no doubt, was true for my wife Judy and me. The Celebration Events crew anticipated and addresed any and all possible issues, leaving us to enjoy the party.
Thanks again for a job well done. We look forward to working with you in the future, both for SunTrust events and personal ones.”
—Phillip E. Wright, SunTrust Bank, Hilton Head Island, SC
Thank you so much for providing our Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra League such a wonderful party last night. You and your team met all of our hopes and expectations and then went beyond them!
Everyone was talking about how much they liked the food. You and the chef put together a very tasty and eye-appealing menu. It was beautifully presented and served. Chris, Christian and the rest of your staff were attentive to our guests and discreet in their impeccable service.
We thank you, Kellie and Molly for making this event such a happy one. Joan and I had to keep reminding ourselves that we were not just guests. That’s how comfortable we were with your direction. I am confident that our guests will be looking for more opportunities to celebrate at Windows on the Waterway. We wish you well and hope our paths will cross again soon.”
—Carol Barker, Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra League
