We absolutely love working with our clients! The relationships made are priceless and we are grateful for their kinds words…
Just wanted to shoot you a quick note and let you know how beautiful everything looked on Saturday! We absolutely loved the set-up and it far exceeded our expectations. Every time anyone came down from the barn to the reception area, they commented on how beautiful the tent looked – it was breathtaking! Thanks for being so great to work with. You and Brad were amazing throughout the whole experience, even up until he day of (thank you to Brad for extending the dance floor – I’m SO glad we did that). I can’t wait to share the pictures with you. It was spectacular!!! Thanks so much!

As an event planner, my reputation relies on my ability to produce spectacular events. I take my reputation very seriously. I am not a meatball and cheese square kind of event planner – I am who you hire if you want the WOW factor at your event. Many of my clients are large corporations. Their expectations are very high – on all accords – from ease of set-up, to execution. My clients want something that makes people say, “Wow! I have never seen anything like that! That was the most fun I have ever had!”
Brad and Shannon Thomas started what I think of as a “turn key, white glove” rental company just as my career as event planner was getting underway. In more ways than one, a good event planner needs a Creative Solution! I constantly challenge what is new in food and entertaining. What have people attending this event never seen or experienced before? One the other hand, what is the standard that we must exceed? Creative Solutions is the only company I know that I can count on to not only meet – but exceed my expectations.
From the delivery and set-up to the clean-up – Brad and Shannon’s staff is knowledgeable and courteous. I can always count on them. They go above and beyond to make me a success.
Working in a region, I come across many rental companies that I have to rely on when working in certain areas. Let me just tell you what a difference your rental company makes. If a rental company fails me – to my audience – I look like the failure. That is the main reason I always want Creative Solutions in my corner. I wish I could put them on an airplane and take them everywhere I work.
. . . And don’t think I am a one time customer! Creative Solutions has been with me every step of the way – whether it is an outdoor festival for 10,000 guests or a very intimate luncheon with a real live princess from the “other side of the pond”. There have been fashion shows with 70 feet of runway and thousands of guests to booth set-ups with celebrities displaying a department’s stores best beauty products. Together, Creative Solutions and I have produced every type of event you can imagine. I guess this is the ultimate testimonial – next year we will be planning my only daughter’s wedding!
If you are looking into doing business with Creative Solutions, you are looking in the right place, if you want your event to be unforgettable. Take my word for it – you don’t want to plan an event without Creative Solutions!

We have been working with Creative Solutions for the past 10 years. They can be counted on to arrive on time, to have equipment that is in good shape, and to have staff who will do whatever it takes to get the job done! Of all of the vendors we use, they are the easiest with which to work. There has never been a special request they have not fulfilled or an event that was too difficult to handle. They are the epitome of event professionals and we wish there were more vendors who had their level of commitment to customer service. Creative Solutions is the best!

We have always been so happy with the great work Creative Solutions has done for us! They have always been on time with delivery and pick-up and gone above and beyond. They have always been gracious even when we have had to do last minute changes. I applaud Shannon, Allison and Brad’s work as well as the crews they send out to set-up and tear-down. You will not find a better event company to work with!
-Debra Brown, Gaston Christian School
Creative Solutions is the best! They are always on time and efficient in their set up and tear down, the staff is extremely helpful in all aspects of an event and they are just an overall pleasure to work with! They are my number 1 recommendation to all of our clients, hands down. Thank you for your dedication and expertise to special events in Gaston County and the surrounding area!

Creative Solutions was wonderful to work with and we would highly recommend Creative Solutions to anyone planning a special event!
It has been a pleasure working with you all thus far and I really appreciate how your clear and prompt communication always eases the stress of an inherently stressful process

“I just wanted to send a note to let you know how much we appreicated all you provided us at our wedding. The chairs looked great and the teal napkins really put a pop of color on the table to compliment my flowers. My favorite part was the bar tables we put on the back porch. They were perfect! Thank you for all you did!”

Creative Solutions did an AWESOME job with our decorations for the Jones/Gonzalez wedding at The Diary Barn this past Sunday. We had many positive comments from the guests as well as some of the staff about the decorations. We were going for a Southern Wedding vintage country garden look and we certainly achieved it with the help of Creative Solutions. Many of our guests were from New York and other northern states and they told us they had always wanted to attend a Southern wedding and they were very impressed! You were very helpful to me and I do appreciate it! Tell Brad that he and all of his staff and crew are AWESOME and I really appreciate all that everyone did for our daughter’s wedding! Thanks so much!

“I can’t tell you how pleased we were with Creative Solutions and the experience we had with our wedding set up. You guys went above and beyond the call of duty-avaliable 24/7. I have never had the personal attention from a vendor like I experienced with you guys. You guys are the best and I will highly recommend your company.”
