Angus’s Proposal Dinner

I hired Elyse (Brass Spatula) to prepare an intimate dinner on the occasion of my fiance’s birthday and the evening on which I chose to propose.

From the moment Elyse responded to my Thumbtack request I felt completely comfortable and relieved that at least the dinner would be perfect. What I wasn’t aware of yet, is that Elyse’s magic extends far beyond her passion and expertise for food. She handled the planning and menu selection with such care and ease – even though I was erratic and nervous. A couple hours before I asked her to arrive later than we had agreed and she graciously obliged.

On arrival, I felt immediately at ease. Her server, Jennifer, is a true gem. They both intuitively got to work and set about preparing and reassuring me that my set up looked amazing and I started to relax. Jennifer lit over 200 candles for me, helped me figure out my new video camera and would have done more if I had asked. They even unloaded my dishwasher!

The food was to die for! – and perfectly tailored to our unique preferences and diet. The timing was perfect. Between Elyse and Jennifer – we never felt rushed or intruded upon – everything arrived and was removed seamlessly and at the perfect moment. They were extraordinarily accommodating during the actual proposal and so sweetly came out singing with my fiance’s birthday custom birthday cake. We both felt hiring Brass Spatula was serendipitous and a perfect way to begin our marriage journey.

We will definitely hire Brassed Spatula again. Not soon enough and can’t recommend them enough!
