Event Planner Reviews

I have been working closely with the catering staff at Simply Elegant for over 8 months now, and every time I deal with them, it is nothing but a pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable, they can answer any question I ever have. They are very fast and efficient when it comes to ordering food and make the entire experience easy and painless.

Their menu has a lot of different options to choose from and are very flexible when certain needs are required. They have many options that can be used for different occasions/events.

Great organization to work with. I hosted a surprise baby shower for my sister-in-law and they provided some beautiful centrepieces for the party. They are really accommodating, prompt with communication, reasonable in their rates, and meticulous in their creations. I initially had some doubts but you just have to trust them to do their magic!

I called Simply one Saturday afternoon, in desperate need of a caterer for a Tuesday meeting. Peter created a menu, presented, and delivered 100% on time! I have used them two or three times since, and each time is exactly the same! Professional, prompt and perfect! I don’t look for anyone else anymore. I always call SE!

Simply Elegant is indisputably the best event managing service in Calgary. Simply Elegant was suggested to us from Norton Rose LLP’s marketing department and after initial contact with Simply Elegant, within a day I received a phone call and I was swept away with their proposal. As the VP Finance and Facilities for the Alberta Student Energy Conference (ASEC) 2013 we had unique and specific requests and Simply Elegant was able to provide all we requested and more. They went above and beyond their scope continuously thinking of new and innovative ideas to ensure our event was successful. They are amazing people to work with and are the best communicators. Not only do they reply in a timely manner, but also give concise and thorough details.

The Alberta Student Energy Conference is a professional development and recruitment seminar and was held at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre on March 1st, 2013. Due to the nature of the conference a lot of the decision making was needed to be completed near the date of the conference and Simply Elegant was always readily available to us and we never had to worry about them! We will never forget the moment the doors to ASEC was opened. It was breathtaking. Our sponsors were extremely pleased. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

A huge thank you to Sharon and Jade from Simply Elegant.

Simply Elegant was the best decision we made.

Organizing my first fundraiser with 250 people in attendance could have been daunting, but not with the team at Simply Elegant by my side. Peter was an absolute joy to work with, as he has the experience to know exactly how an event can function flawlessly. I also worked with Sharon on decor. I showed her one picture of the flower arrangements I wanted and she delivered precisely. I could not have been more pleased. The fundraiser was May 27th, 2017 and went off without a glitch. The food…the service…the energy…it was all exquisite. I would work with Simply Elegant again and again and again!! Simply Excellent! 🙂

Excellent service for a small gathering. Showed up on time and catered to our needs. Staff was able to go with the flow when needed – food was excellent and house was left spotless. Can’t thank you enough – such a great experience.

Sharon and her team were a pleasure to work with! They worked hard to achieve a look that our client would be happy with, and the end result was a great success.  We will definitely contact Simply Elegant for future events.

I thought the room looked absolutely beautiful.  Our solid gold 50th gala was shining in gold from the table cloths to wonderful lit ice centerpieces celebrating our 50th anniversary.  Your attention to detail was superb and you certainly helped us to work within our budget.  I especially loved the pride you took in your work.   I would not hesitate to use your creative touch and services again in the future.  Thanks very much for a job well done!

My client’s are sick of the same old sausage and meat panini’s and want to try something different. In order to succeed in sales we have to present ourselves as being unique in the marketplace. I heard about Simply Elegant through one of their amazing catering events and decided to give them a call.

What surprised me was that Simply Elegant has weekly hot meal specials for a price close to regular old sandwich trays. These chef prepared meals may include Chicken, Beef, Soup, Vegetables, and Salads – all for one low price. Each special is unique and is different every month. Not the same old same old as above. How do they do it? They shop for specials, buy bulk quantities and prepare a menu in advance that saves me money. You can sign up for their regular newsletters that offer these monthly specials on their web site.

One of my engineering clients desired sandwiches instead of the hot meal deals. I called the Simply Elegant sales coordinator and she offered me a package deal with sandwiches, pickle trays, cookies, and drinks. What is important to me is that the meals are delivered on time and I haven’t had one problem with Simply Elegant delivering late. The sandwiches and wraps were of the highest quality and were prepared by what looked to be a professional chef. The meats were of a high quality – for example, the chicken and beef were not sliced deli meats, but were prepared in house (Chicken Breast, Roast Beef) that tasted out of this world. This engineering firm liked the sandwiches and wraps so much that they called me to use Simply Elegant as their corporate caterer.

I highly recommend Simply Elegant. Their food is fresh, is of highest quality and is prepared by professional chefs. Their staff is so nice to deal with and their pricing is competitive to other catering companies that I’ve used in the past. Their monthly catering specials presents my sales company as being unique in the marketplace. Use them!
