Event Services

Special event assisting is my favorite type of work! As a well-seasoned event host, bartender and party decorating enthusiast, I can help with anything the host needs for dinner parties, celebrations for all ages, holiday events and more, including:

  • Cooking dishes, plating meals and creating charcuterie trays, dessert bars, and more

  • Setting up buffets, coffee stations, bars and event activities

  • Maintaining a tidy and beautiful presentation of beverages, food, serving tools, and paper goods

  • Setting up and tearing down spaces, including decorating, furniture placement, and working with vendors

  • Shopping for and delivering food and supplies before the big day

  • During the party, picking up after guests, and keeping the kitchen sparkly clean



"Just wanted to give a shout out and huge recommendation for Mary Rees Gould! Mary worked a very busy and crazy party at my home on Saturday night. She and her assistant were amazing and I cannot express more strongly how helpful they were! Never hesitate if thinking about booking Mary to help you!"

"Mary was instrumental to making our holiday party a true success! It was such a pleasure to work with her. Through planning and on the day of the event, she brought a calm, professional vibe. We really appreciate her knowledge and expertise that helped us narrow down the food and drink choices that would work for our crowd and she brought some of her own supplies to help with staging. Our guests were so impressed with her service and we loved being able to engage with people at our own party for once!"
