What They're Saying...

"From the first meeting when you sit down and brainstorm your dreams for your event, Deb Muzzillo is so fun and helpful and easy to work with. She lets you know she can make anything happen, yet still wants it to be your decisions, your creation. Her prices are reasonable and she can re-create anything that you have in mind. At the time of your event she is so helpful and does everything for you, and makes your event the one you had envisioned! I have worked with Deb numerous times, and she has never failed in creating my expectations for my event. She stands behind her work and her follow through and care is unmatched. She makes it feel like she is setting up her own party. You enjoy her company so much, that she becomes a friend and you would like her to stay and celebrate with you! I highly recommend Deb for any event you are planning. She will always be a part of mine!"

Wow, I am not even sure where to start with our review of The Twisted Tulip! Absolutely everything was incredible!Firstly, we located this venue without the opportunity to see it firsthand because it was in just the beginning stages of construction. I met with Deb and looked at the pictures, floor plans, and just sat and listened to the vision she had for the Twisted Tulip and I immediately knew it was exactly what I wanted. I fell in love with the look and feel of the venue over blueprints and pictures alone! During all the months leading up to the wedding a global pandemic hit and put everything in standstill as far as gatherings and receptions. We were in contact mostly with Deb but also with her event director and coordinator Kiryn who was also equally amazing. When I got to see the Venue in person after construction was completed, I was absolutely blown away! Even the most beautiful pictures still would not do this place justice. This whole place just has a magical feeling to it. The reclaimed barn wood on the outside, walking inside with these beautiful white modern walls, with intricate brick going fully up one wall for the bar area, and a breathtaking reclaimed tin ceiling! It was Rustic and Gorgeous! It was everything I could have hoped for and more! I decided then at that moment, we are moving full steam ahead pandemic or not! I couldn’t wait to be married to my best friend! We obviously had so many questions and requests through the entire process, but both Deb and Kiryn were there to quickly respond to all our texts, emails and give helpful friendly advice for everything. Deb owns Party Animalz LLC and does event décor and event planning. Also, Kiryn who owns The Copper Cow Inc and does décor and event planning, as well. These talented ladies did ALL of our flowers for our wedding!! I’m talking... the brides bouquet, bridesmaids bouquet, men’s boutonnieres, MOTB corsage, MOTG corsage, grandparents corsages, our gorgeous centerpieces for each table, a stunning bed of eucalyptus and roses lay down the middle of our head table, and hundreds of flowers for our Arch that would absolutely take your breath away! I was very specific on the color of roses I wanted, and Deb made it happen! I received compliments left and right all night long on how gorgeous my centerpieces and flowers were at my wedding. When I say Deb and Kiryn took my vision and made it come to life I am not kidding, they nailed it! These two beautiful women are a Powerhouses in their craft and honestly the Ultimate Dynamic Duo! We highly recommend The Twisted Tulip, Deb, and her Event Director/Lead Planner Kiryn! From the start they worked with us to create the wedding of our dreams. Everything felt so personal and dedicated to us, devoted to making our day as incredible as it could be. The venue is stunning and so incredibly versatile to anyone’s style. Thank you, Deb, and Kiryn, you made our day the most special day of our lives.

"Deb's expertise was crucial in making our wedding day picture perfect. She went above and beyond helping us create a rustic winery look and feel, complete with antique wine barrels, when a winery was not available for our reception. With Deb's creativity, we were also able to maximize our wedding budget which was very important to us. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting to create a theme wedding on a budget!!! She is wonderful to work with!!!"
