In May of 2014 our daughter was graduating from her Master's program at MIIS, and we hired Laura Oneto as a caterer and party organizer for an intimate brunch at our home. At the time, I didn't know what type of party we would be having. Laura and I met over coffee to brainstorm. She had wonderfully creative, lovely decorating ideas, as well as amazing thoughts about different food and drink offerings. It was obvious that she had the savvy and confidence to make it happen.
It was a real treat to have someone pull together all of the details, do much of the shopping, set up our house, cook, and clean up afterward. Laura was ahead of me with planning, but was never intrusive. She incorporated many of our personal family items to make it extra special. During the party she was a gentle, competent presence. She kept an eye on all of the details that needed attending to, and made sure that the guests were happy.
I will most certainly call on Laura again for party assistance. My daughter's graduation brunch will always be a wonderful memory for me, mainly because I was able to be there and enjoy the day!
