Dear Estrelita, Elias & Angelita,
We felt so blessed to have Sizzle with Decor as our wedding decorators and event coordinator. We truly believe you are the best in Ottawa! You turned our daughters wedding into an incredible affair.
Estrelita and Elias – how can we ever thank you enough for the wonderful ceremony and reception room that you created for Stephanie and Sam’s wedding day! When Stephanie and Sam walked into the ceremony and reception room it was beyond their expectations. The rooms were STUNNING, they were PERFECT right down to the smallest detail. They were beautiful, elegant and sophisticated and suited the venue.
I can’t believe the long hours you put into it. No one can imagine how long it takes to setup and take everything down. When we arrived on Friday you and your team were there getting things ready and then again you were there the following day. You worked tirelessly. We were so surprised to see you yet again when the wedding day ended at 1:00 a.m. to take everything down. This really made the wedding day absolutely stress free as we knew that everything would being taken care of to our satisfaction. Everything was absolutely stunning, gorgeous and elegant!!
This is only one example of why Sizzle with Décor won the Ottawa Wedding Award for the best decorator of the year.
We couldn’t have asked for the décor to have turned out any better. Every detail was accounted for and looked absolutely beautiful. We received so many compliments on how unique the décor was at the wedding. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so unique, special and unforgettable. …we would highly recommend you to anyone. Thank you again so much for everything and especially for the extra work you put in to make the last-minute indoor ceremony beautiful, we know that you went above and beyond and Stephanie and Sam appreciate it so much!
Angelita – we knew we were in good hands with you as our coordinator.
Hiring Angelita as a day-of coordinator was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding. It was a special blessing to be able to know that Angelita and her assistant were setting up and making sure every detail was in place. She stepped in and took care of everything — we didn’t have to worry about one thing. She was extremely professional and attentive and was always there to assist in any issues that came up. The wedding would not have been successful if it wasn’t for her talent, passion and great attention to detail. The wedding day was virtually stress-free. If there was a problem, she took care of it.
Angelita was on top everything, from ensuring that the bridal party was on time and where they should be, to fluffing Stephanie’s dress, and helping her keep calm. She went above and beyond our expectations and was there to crack the whip when needed. She took a HUGE stress off our shoulders, in more ways than one. We couldn’t have survived the day without her by Stephanie’s side. Angelita’s organization and attention to detail made her worth far more than the rates she charges. We would highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding; with Angelita’s help, the wedding was the smoothly-run success! We had a wonderful stress free day and an awesome experience. Thank you.
Sizzle with Decor – is like a one stop shop! We never had to worry about anything because we knew that they were able to resolve any problems that would occur as part of the planning process.
The delivery of the entire event was impeccable and we will always be grateful for the incredible effort from the entire team.
Thank you Estrelita, Elias and Angelita for making Stephanie and Sam’s dreams come true!

Dear Estrelita and Elias,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, I extend this note of thanks for your sustained contributions to increasing cancer survivorship in Eastern Ontario. It is an absolute pleasure to have worked with you and your tremendous family for many years and to have seen your Sizzle With Décor business achieve such great success.
Your Sizzle With Dance and Sizzle With Style Galas are full of energy, style and passion. The Foundation is blessed to have over an event a week providing support to us so I can say with confidence that the Sizzle With Style events have grown to be among the most glamorous in the city. And of course, as charitable events in support of the Foundation, these have contributed in a tangible way to building the Maplesoft Cancer Survivorship Centre, the home for our innovative Cancer Survivorship Coaching Programs. You should thus be proud of your place on the Builder’s Wall for the Centre. And beyond the Galas, your gracious and last‐minute Sizzle With Décor contribution to our Bust a Groove event made the absolute best of an unfortunate cancellation from a service provider. Despite a considerable time constraint, you exceeded all expectations with dazzling creativity, sophisticated product, and exceptional service in a challenging setting.
I wish you all the best with the Sizzle with Décor business and look forward to our continued collaboration on the Sizzle With Style and Sizzle With Dance events.

Estrelita and Elias are very sincere and caring people.
They always ensure a quality product, exhibit flexibility, organization, timeliness and work as true partners with clients and vendors alike. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of event planning and décor services.

My husband and I live in Edmonton, but we are both originally from Ottawa, and our wedding was in the Water Court Foyer of the National Gallery of Canada; I had to plan everything from afar. Instead of an e-mail back from my initial contact, Estrelita picked up the phone and called me within minutes of me sending my inquiry …where do you find customer service like that?! She spent over an hour with me on the phone explaining the process, asking me what my vision is, what the budget is, finding solutions to get what I want despite it and going through everything in detail. After we hung up, she emailed me everything we spoke about. On that note, she is the only one in Ottawa that has the orchid colour, which was exactly what I had been looking for.
Due to the distance everything was done over phone and e-mail, but the day I arrived to Ottawa. I had an appointment with her to show me everything we had chosen and Elias was there, he was very welcoming and friendly. It was the first time I met her in person, and she is a wonderful lady. While I was there she even helped me with other last minute wedding preparation stuff, and she shared a few of her business contacts with me, which was very generous of her.
Estrelita, Elias and their team went above and beyond our expectations! My husband and I had a sneak peek of the reception before the guests arrive and we were speechless; and when the guests arrived they complimented on how the room was completely transformed. Working with her was such a pleasure with her positive spirit. Her success comes from her hard work, whatever questions I had, she would e-mail me back no matter the hour. Also, I felt reassured that I was her only bride that day, and that she would be at the venue overlooking everything, this goes to show that she is about quality and not quantity. All in all it was an amazing experience, Estrelita and Elias made the process easy, never a hick-up. In the end, it did not feel transactional; it felt like I gained a friend. We will highly recommend Sizzle with Decor to family and friends.
Thank you Estrelita and Elias for making our vision come to life! We can’t thank you enough!
Anthony and Anne-Marie Bourdeau
Dear Estrelita and Elias,
Andrew and I would like to thank you both so much for all your hard work and efforts to ensure everything was perfect for our special day!
All of our guests were simply blown away when arriving to the venue. It was everything we had imagined and more! The elegant ceiling drapery and the luxurious table linens were simply stunning, not to mention the gorgeous candelabra centerpieces.
You went above and beyond our expectation. We are truly grateful for how personable and professional you were to work with. We are also very grateful for your help recommending all the other wonderful services your company deals with. We appreciate your generosity with all the extra touches you added to make things just perfect.
We would highly recommend your expertise and services to anyone needing event décor any day. It was a day we will truly never forget and thank you for making it so beautiful!
Vanessa & Andrew
Dear Estrelita and the Sizzle with Decor Team,
Thank you so much for making the dream vision for our wedding come true. We received countless compliments on our elegant and classy decor. From the first day that we met, I knew that we were going to enjoy working with you. We really appreciated how much you listened to our ideas and vision and helped make them a reality. Throughout the entire experience we were comfortable knowing that you would not only create something beautiful, but respect our budget at the same time. Whether we called, emailed or texted, you always got back to us on the same day. It was so refreshing to have that level of customer service. Because of this, I knew that we were in good hands and never had anything to worry about. Right down to the last few weeks before the wedding when final details were being ironed out, you were always available and this was really great.
Finally, we really appreciated the extra effort you took on our wedding day to make everything perfect. With our traditional Sri Lankan ceremony, there were last minute aspects to the decor that you went out of your way for and went above and beyond what we had initially discussed at no extra cost. This truly showed us how much you cared about making our day a dream come true.
Thanks so much for all your hard work and dedication. We would definitely recommend your expertise to anyone planning a wedding or event!

Dear Estrelita and Elias,
We are so grateful to you both for creating such a beautiful setting for our wedding reception. The room was absolutely stunning; we had compliments on your work all night long. You took a simple unattractive room and transformed it into a fairytale space. It was elegant and beautiful! I wouldn’t have changed a single detail.
You were so professional and encouraging throughout the entire process and worked wonderfully to make the night perfect while respecting our limited budget. You were able to divine our vision and make creative recommendations to make it happen. We can’t thank you enough for your hard work and would be very happy to recommend you to any future potential customers.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work, we really appreciated it!

Dear Estrelita, Elias & Angelita,
Wonderful, talented, professional, hospitable, attentive, visionary…overall AMAZING to work with. I felt so blessed to have Sizzle with Decor as our wedding decorators and event coordinators. I truly believe they are the best in Ottawa! They turned our wedding into an incredible and classy affair, one that blew our guests as well as our minds away. It was so stunning that I am still in awe and can’t believe how beautiful our wedding was!
When my family and I first meet with Estrelita and Elias, they were immediately able to understand my vision and went above and beyond to help capture what I had been dreaming of since childhood. The team truly held my hand throughout this entire process and guided me to other vendors who would be able to deliver only the best. Sizzle with Decor is like a one stop shop! We never had to worry about anything because we knew that they were able to resolve any problems that would occur as part of the planning process.
On the day of our wedding, we knew we were in good hands with Angelita as our coordinator. She was extremely professional and attentive and was always there to assist in any issues that came up. Our wedding would not have been successful if it wasn’t for her talent, passion and great attention to detail. The delivery of the entire event was impeccable and we will always be grateful for the incredible effort from the entire team.
Thank you Estrelita, Elias and Angelita for making our dreams come true!

I still receive compliments on how everything sparkled so eloquently and it is all because of Sizzle with Décor.

Hi Estrelita and Elias!
I wanted to make sure we sent you a message before we leave to go honeymooning!
“I absolutely LOVE it!” Looking at these pictures makes me want to do it all over again.
Thanks Estrelita and Elias for making our day so memorable.
It was PERFECT!” I was absolutely stunned when we walked into the room at St. Elias.
Everything looked perfect and you literally transformed that room into something beautiful.
We had a TON of compliments on how amazing the room looked.
Thank you for everything you have done for us the past months.
It was a difficult summer, but we got through it, and were able to celebrate the most amazing day with our friends and family.

Thank you so much Estrelita for the beautiful wedding decorations that you provided for our wedding day.
Not only were our guests blown away, but the site manager thought that the hall had never looked better and HE wanted photos to show off the venue!
We had so many compliments all night long.
I think my jaw nearly hit the floor when I arrived and saw the front entrance and the staircase decorated so beautifully, and it only got better!
Everything looked elegant and the lighting you created was beyond my own dreams perfection.
You went the extra mile to make sure that the vision we had was fulfilled above and beyond our expectations.
I really couldn’t believe how perfectly you made my dream come true.
Even with the tight time frame and some other extenuating circumstances surrounding the event, you made it happen, and we can’t thank you enough.

You were an absolute pleasure to work with!
Emily and Matthew Sweet
Estrelita and Elias, I cannot thank you enough! From the very beginning, Estrelita was working with me to make my wedding everything I wanted it to be and more. She far exceeded my expectations. She worked within my budget, my ideas, made wonderful suggestions and met with me several times to ensure everything was triple checked. Sizzle with Décor has linen that can’t be compared to anything else in the city.
Estrelita created my wedding décor to be completely unique to my personality. Everything was gorgeous and my guests raved about how beautiful everything looked! Sizzle with décor is incredibly flexible, helpful, suggestive and fun. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. I almost felt like part of a family and was treated like I had the only wedding in the world, instead of being treated like just another ‘customer’. I was never rushed, my ideas were never shunned and the meetings made me feel completely comfortable.
My wedding was more gorgeous than I had ever pictured and I felt completely at ease on the wedding day knowing that everything would be taken care of. I left all our meetings feeling stress free and excited. I think Estrelita was just as excited about my wedding as I was! She has such a wonderful energy. On the day of the wedding, everything was taken care of.
Estrelita is so experienced, kind, caring and knowledgeable and she did my wedding effortlessly giving me peace of mind and an elegant beautiful wedding! Thank you Estrelita and Elias for making my wedding the wedding I had always dreamt about!

Sizzle with Decor is the Best!
SWD made our special day absolutely to order. When we came looking for our wedding reception decor we had modest expectations about what we could do with our budget. It was our dream to have a Marie Antoinette French reception, but we didn’t know if it could be done. We checked a few places and they didn’t have anything close to what wanted. Eventually through a bridal show we ended up talking with Estrelita and Eli of Sizzle with Decor.
The first thing we noted about Estrelita was her passion. She is full of energy and is very detail-oriented.
At our consultation we got down to business right away and we found out the Estrelita stocks fabrics that are way, way better than the usual decorator places. This is the difference folks: she doesn’t simply stock linens…she supplies the real fabrics. After seeing so many fabrics we were kind of wondering how much all this was going to cost. This is when we learned the SWD can be very creative to help you fit within your budget. In our case we had around 100 guests, and our reception was in a huge room. We worked with SWD to make sure that it was cozy and everything worked together,
Skip ahead to the day of the wedding, Estrelita and Eli were there at the reception hall before the catering crew; and even before the wedding planner!
This was probably the best part of the decorating. To see what we had paid for was really surprising. I mean, little pictures on a piece of paper don’t really do something justice. Long story short, we got exactly the kind of decor we wanted, and it fit well with all the other touches.
Estrelita and Eli and the SWD team, we want to thank you again for providing the best possible decor we could have hoped for.

Estrelita and Elias of ‘Sizzle with Decor’ help make the dream of your perfect wedding come true!
They were knowledgeable and experienced, but also listened to what we wanted.
They were great to work with, super friendly, and extremely reliable.
They made the process stress free and budget friendly.
We were more than happy with the stunning decor.
Our wedding at the National Arts Centre received compliments from many people.
We couldn’t have been happier with the way it turned out.
They really did go above and beyond and we highly recommend them to our friends and family.

Benoit and Deo-Gratias
Hi Estrelita & Elias,
Hope you are well.
My husband and I wanted to take the time to say a big THANK YOU to Estrelita and Elias for making our dream come true!
Estrelita, thank you so much, for not only being our decorator, but also for being a great friend through all this wedding planning process. You went above and beyond what was possible in order to help us.
The year 2012 started off really bad for us, and we were very hesitant about having the wedding in the summer, but you were there to listen to us, and offer your best advice.
You were patient with me, although I kept on changing things every now and then, you were very kind and soft spoken, although sometimes I could have been annoying and indecisive, and best of all, you still accepted to help me out although I had already cancelled the wedding and you had other brides booked for that date!
No words can describe how much we appreciate what you have done for us. Being our decorator was not the easiest thing, you had to put up with very annoying people from The Palace Banquet Hall, they changed up things on us very last minute, they were rude and irritating, but despite all that, for the love of God, you kept your cool and still pulled off an amazing wedding decor!
Thank you very much Estrelita, our wedding was extremely beautiful, beyond what we could have imagined, you helped make that day the most beautiful day of our lives.
You are the only decorator I recommend to friends and family and to anyone else out there. For all my upcoming birthdays, or other types of celebration, I will only turn to you for over the top and fabulous decor!
I wish you great success in your business, may God bless you and your family abundantly, and may your business continue to grow and grow every year! Stay sweet; stay positive, God sees all your actions!

Minh and I would like to thank you two once again for making our wedding day so special!
We were amazed and ecstatic at the transformation you did at the Yangtze Restaurant. The two of you did a professional job in decorating the place and there were so many wonderful comments from our guests.
Estrelita, I really appreciated your attention to detail and your personalized touches and not just that, you always went the extra step to make me happy.
I would like everyone to know that I did not look at any other Decor places in Ottawa and that I made the right choice of going with Sizzle with Decor

Hi Estrelita and Elias,
Corey and I just wanted to say thank you one more time for all of your help with our wedding – it was just perfect. We and all of our guests had a fabulous time and we love the decoration.
Thank you for all your patience and hard work.
As soon as we met in February, you put both Corey and I totally at ease. We knew that you will do above and beyond to make our special day goes smooth no matter what happened. And it did.
There was absolutely nothing left for us to worry about. You took care all the decoration part perfectly and professionally.
We had such a wonderful time; we wish we could do it all over again.
One of the greatest pleasures was getting to know you. You were not just our wedding decorator, but an ally, confident and friend.
Thank you, we couldn’t have done it without you – you really did make our wedding dreams come true!
We hope to see you again soon.

And most of all thank you for treating us like family and for putting up with all the dramas!
We hope someday we can return the favor!!!

Just wanted to give you guys a testimonial as it was a pleasure working with you.
In regards to our wedding, we were reluctant to find a decorator at first as we had heard many stories of wedding decor being bland and or not what they had expected. However, after meeting with Sizzle with Decor, we could not be happier. The planning phase was excellent, working with Sizzle with Decor on the color schemes, backdrops, table arrangements and various other aspects.
We cannot express how wonderful it was working with this vendor, as the planning phase and day of arrangements were more than what we expected; everyone at our wedding also commented on how wonderful the place looked. We were extremely happy with the quality of the decor as well as the setup and take down which eased our minds.
We would recommend Sizzle with Decor to any of our friends, it was a pleasure working on our special day with them and we could not be more thankful!
Rebecca & Jason Eng
Pamela and David
Estrelita and Elias from Sizzle with Decor were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.
We were recommended to them by our coordinator at the National Arts Centre as they have decorated many weddings at this venue. We first met with them in their home, where Estrelita and Elias showed us their wide selection of linen. Although they did not have the same matching shade of pewter for table runners and chair sashes that we wanted, they special ordered them for us to ensure everything would match perfectly. The NAC has wide chairs that don’t fit certain chair covers. Sizzle with Decor had ones that fit perfectly.
Estrelita and Elias worked within our budget and presented us with options that would work. They were never pushy and offered helpful suggestions based on our ideas. They are very experienced and you can rest assured they will get the job done.
Of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, Sizzle with Decor provided us with the most reassurance. We knew that they would do what they promised to do and they would do it well.
Estrelita and Elias proactively followed up with us to keep us posted on the order status of the linen – we never had to chase them down.
They are also quick to respond to any emails or phone calls.
We would highly recommend Sizzle with Decor to anyone planning a wedding.

We would like to thank you first of all for being such a great help in making our wonderful wedding décor, all we could hear were just amazing comments from our family and guest.
I really believe that the kindness, generosity and your communication skills are really the key to your great success!
Estrelita was there from the beginning to the end you were there for us like family, even if we changed our mind a couple of times, you guys never made us feel uncomfortable.
We are grateful for everything that you did just to make sure that everything looks perfect for our wedding and we are still moved by the thoughtfulness of your help.
We are very fortunate to have found your website and to have decided to go with your wonderful décor.Thank you so much!!
Keep being bless and thank you for all your effort!

Hi Estrelita and Elias,
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did in transforming our room from a rustic, boring room to elegance!
The transformation was absolutely incredible and the room was simply stunning!
As almost half of our guests stayed at the venue for the weekend, they witnessed this transformation and could only share their admiration and their awe at the room!
When we chose our venue, we knew that the location was beautiful and that we loved how it looked from the outside but the inside was rather boring.
Initially, we considered your services as we needed linens not realizing how much more that you would be able to offer!
The quality of your linens is incredible! We received numerous compliments on the “rose” table cloth—so beautiful!
We chose some beautiful linen but Estrelita, the way that you presented them made them even more beautiful!
The backdrop was incredible!! We didn’t think it would be possible to fit a backdrop in the room as per the venue and so were worried about how we could cover that ugly wall!
Simply from photos, you were convinced that it could be done and you immediately contacted our venue to do your own site visit to confirm what could be done! Wow!
The whole room was fantastic — with the floor lighting, the recommendation to get red light bulbs for the light fixtures and the battery-operated tea lights and the referral to a wonderful florist!
Thanks again!! It was truly remarkable! When people we know are searching for a décor company, we’ll definitely refer them to Sizzle With Decor!
Monica & Stéphane
Victoria and Dean
Hi Estrelita & Elias,
Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you!
Thank you so much for all of your help in brings our vision to life.
When we walked into the venue we were so pleased!
It was exactly how we discussed and envisioned it!! You were all so friendly and willing to go the extra mile.
You did a beautiful job, we loved it!!

Cassey and Bruce
Again, I just wanted to thank for all your assistance in helping make Cassey and Bruce’s wedding reception such a memorable evening.
The specialty tables looked amazing and added such sophistication to the look of the room.
The additions of your “gifts” to two tables were beautiful and very much appreciated.
As well, thank you for your support in the last few weeks.
Thanks again so much.
I went to my son Andrew and daughter-in-law Maryse wedding in Ottawa on September 1st. The hall was breath taking, definitely had the WOW factor.

Hello Estrelita and Elias,
Thank you both for all your hard work.
Our wedding decorations were simply amazing!
You guys went out of your way to make sure every little detail was taken care of and you came through on very short notice.
A big thank you once again.
Annie & Chris
I just wanted to thank you so much for the amazing job you did for our wedding.
It looked amazing, I loved the purple and it was well above my expectations. The entire guest loved the decor too. Amazing, all together!!!
Estrelita and Elias…..what would we have done without the two of you? You guys provided us with a service that, quite frankly, comes unmatched in this industry. Courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, the two of you provided a wedding experience unlike any that we could have ever imagined. We always wanted our reception to stand out, to be unique and unforgettable, for both us and our guests. And my goodness, did you ever deliver! My wife convinced me that you guys were the way to go if we wanted to make an impression, and I must say, I’m glad that I listened to her. Every little detail of the decor was paid close attention to. Every option was discussed and explored, to come up with a result that was absolutely stunning when finally put together. We admit, we had no idea how the reception hall would look like once it was decorated. But once we entered the hall for the first time for our introduction, we almost stopped dead in our tracks. The venue was gorgeous! After dinner, our guests couldn’t help but offer compliments and “ooh’s and ahh’s” when speaking about the decor. They were absolutely floored! You guys are amazing. Your level of care goes beyond simply just producing a result, you guys become involved in every wedding that you are associated with. If there’s anything that you need help with, from music, flowers, cakes, and anything else in between, Estrelita and Elias have the contacts to help you on your way. They don’t treat you simply as just another contract, they actually care about you and your big day. They get to know you, they get excited for you, their level of client care is simply unsurpassed. Estrelita and Elias, we can’t thank you enough. From the level of care you showed concerning our wedding to the results of your stunning decor, you two are a marvel in the wedding world. I have absolutely no doubts when I say that whoever decides to employ your considerable skills for their event, they will walk away with a grin from ear to ear and remember what you have done for the rest of their days. We know that we will not soon forget everything that you guys did for us.
Christian and Robyne
I cannot thank you enough for your outstanding job on our wedding décor. When I walked into our ceremony and reception room it was beyond my expectations. It was beautiful, elegant and sophisticated and suited our venue as well as our guests. Everyone commented on the room, how amazing everything looked and the attention to detail. I feel truly blessed that I had the privilege of working with you during this special time.
I want to thank you as well for your guidance and encouragement during the planning process. You spent endless hours with me giving me suggestions and creative ideas and I am truly grateful for all of your time. You have a wonderful gift of making your clients feel like family and not just another customer. I know there are so many brides that you work with and I felt as though I was the only one.
In the wedding industry, your professionalism and level of customer service cannot be matched! I know you will be a continued success in this business because of your thoughtfulness, dedication and integrity. I appreciated all of your suggestions for other vendors and valued your opinion. I had complete confidence in your abilities because of your experience and enthusiasm. It paid off as our wedding looked absolutely stunning, thanks to your family’s hard work! I will never forget how well you treated us and I look forward to recommending you to all future brides!! You are fantastic!!
Estrelita and Elias – how can we ever thank you enough for the wonderful ceremony and reception room that you created for our wedding day! From the moment we met you both, we knew were in great hands and you took the stress away from having to worry about how our room would look. Your visions was beyond our expectations.
Thank you so much for making our wedding day even more special and for designing and creating a beautiful masterpiece for our special day. It was definitely one of the best wedding décor that my guests have ever seen! You were both a pleasure to work with!
It was an easy decision to work with Estrelita from Sizzle with Decor again. We had used her services a year earlier and felt comfortable going back to a trusted and familiar face. We also knew the team of her and her family would succeed in giving us stunning and memorable wedding decor. Estrelita is up for a challenge, and will not settle with anything less than perfect. Show her your vision, and she will make it happen!
You exceeded our expectations! WOW!!! What a Beautiful Masterpiece you had designed and created for our special day!!! Thank you Estrelita & Elias!!!
Shirin & Rasel
Dear Estrelita and Elias,
It is a month after our wedding and my husband and I feel like it was just yesterday, because of pictures of our vivid beautiful décor that you put together on our special day.
We came to you with a budget and you gave us way more than we expected and more than my family expected. You were able to create everything I envisioned and more for 275 guests and a 15 person head table! You and Elias were more than our decorators you are our friends and looked out for us like family.
Thank you for your labors in the beginning, middle, during, and end of our wedding. Estrelita, I still can’t believe you ironed every one of our chair coverings!!! Not only does it show your dedication to perfection and work, but to ensuring that everything was perfect for us.
I can never say thank you enough- God bless you, Elias, and your whole family. I would recommend you to any couple.

Shane and I wanted to thank you for making our wedding reception absolutely gorgeous! Everything was stunning and we thank you so much for adding in the extra special touches which we know aren’t part of the package. You have been such a pleasure and a great help to us- I am sure that my wedding dress being fixed had a lot to do with your influence!
Aniseh was so gorgeous and they did a fabulous performance! Everyone has given us so many compliments on the decor and entertainment.
We would love to give you more for all the wonderful work you did for us, but we are so broke right now- we’re very sorry. But we hope that you had a great time at the wedding and we will definitely be telling everyone we know about you! If you give me info for your daughter we would love to spread the word about the new wedding planning business she is starting up.

We wish you all the best in your business and will do anything we can to help promote you!

This Canada Day Weekend my sister’s best friend married her high school sweetheart. The Wedding was quite possibly one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Blues, whites and golds filtered the room and there was a resonating romantic ambiance that you couldn’t help but fall in love with. That was most definitely created by Estrelita of Sizzle with Decor. The stage had a beautiful white chaise and it was draped in beautiful fabrics and there were heaps of matching pillows all around, giving it an Arabian theme. Absolutely stunning!

We conveyed our wishes and Estrelita immediately turned them into a fairy tale disply with suggestions that made our faces smile. Estrelita and Angelita were heaven sent!

(Yours in Fragrance and Fashion)
Estrelita was the forth designer I spoke with and the first to willingly discuss options that would work around my numbers. The decor on the day of the wedding was what I had seen before and what I had expected. I was very happy with it — it was beautiful. Estrelita is a perfectionist and delivers wonderfully.
Gina and Kevin
Estrelita was a tremendous help for our wedding. When other vendors told us that we would not be able to find a chair cover that would fit, Estrelita pulled though and made it happen. Not only did she find chair covers, she was able to provide us with different choices. She went out of her way to accommodate us. Her entire family were really nice and helped out on the day of the wedding. She is well respected by the other vendors. She also recommended us to an amazing make-up artist.
Thank you Estrelita!
-Gina and Kevin
Estrelita Aboukassam (Sizzle with Decor) made our wedding ceremony decor something to remember. Although we had contacted her on very short notice, she had made herself available to meet with us several times before the big day, and most importantly, she was able to provide us with elegant decor within our budget. Estrelita is very gracious and organized, takes careful notes, and is a pleasure to speak with. Her husband Elias was also very welcoming and very helpful. They work wonderfully as a team.

Your willingness to work with us when our financial circumstances changed was appreciated more than we can express.

Dear Estrelita and Elias,
When we were in the market of looking for a wedding decorator I emailed and called several different companies for information and quotes. Believe it or not there were many people I contacted whom did not return my call or reply to my email. There was an exception though to one of my inquiry emails, there was just one person who did call back 5 minutes following an email that was sent to them, and that one person was Estrelita from Sizzle with Decor. From the moment I spoke with her I knew that she was a focused, detail oriented, knowledgeable, stylish, and hardworking individual.
The key points that she focused on during our conversation was our budget, our main decor priorities, our venue, and if we had a certain style in mind. She quickly booked us in to see her for a full consultation. Once we arrived at her house, her and her husband Elias were extremely welcoming and friendly. During the appointment, she asked what our preferred colours were and she had given us some ideas on possible styles. By the end of our meeting, my fiancée and I had picked out exactly what we wanted and came to an agreement with a quote that was provided. Leading up to the wedding, we had a couple of meetings with Estrelita and Elias at our Lord Elgin venue.
This venue was a very special one for them as it was their very first decorating contract that they had ever done at that location. Walking into the reception hall on the day of our wedding was completely magical!
Everything we had chosen came together so beautifully; the colours, the lighting, the detail, had brought me to tears! Estrelita and Elias did the most amazing job with decorating the Lord Elgin. The hall looked so glamorous and romantic. I must say that if you choose Sizzle with Decor to be your wedding decorator or decorator for any other event, you will not be disappointed. Estrelita and Elias are very hardworking, knowledgeable, and completely reliable.
Sizzle with Decor is a company that you would be completely satisfied with from beginning to end. Thanks again Estrelita and Elias and I apologize for the tardiness of this testimonial, our lives have been quite busy lately.

Dear Estrelita and Elias,
When we first met Elias and Estrelita, we knew right away that they were the right fit for us on a personal level. They made us feel more like a couple excited to get married than a potential customer. They were more about our vision than trying to push something we didn’t want. Needless to say when we left our first consultation, they had all our confidence that this was going to be the right fit for us.
They kept in touch with us during our planning stages to see how things were going. Which not many vendors do. That allowed us to have confidence that we are not to worry about how the hall was going too like on our wedding day. Our wedding day, WOW we knew it was going to be beautiful but they surpassed our expectations.
With a winter wedding we wanted to capture the “Wonderland” part of it. Did they ever succeed! With blue and silver as our colors, everything came together better than we imagined. Even today, (a year half later) we are still getting compliments on how beautiful the hall was. Sizzle With Décor is a talented team that has a great vision with family values that will go a long way. No two events are decorated the same making your event unique and tailored to you. If you decide to proceed with Sizzle with Décor, Estrelita and Elias will not let you down. It will be one of the easiest decisions you could make for your special day.
Thank you for making our wedding day that more perfect!
Stacy and Jason

Hi Estrelita and Elias,
We want to thank you and your team for all of the hard work and commitment that was put into making our wedding that much more special!
The backdrop and stage you designed to fit twenty people was absolutely stunning! Our guests were amazed with the decorations and how you were able to transform a plain conference room and venue into something beautiful and elegant, just like we had envisioned. They are still talking about it months later!
We really appreciate having you with us every step of the way and how you made yourselves available to respond to our needs. We can tell you really care about your clients.
Thank you again for everything!

Dear Estrelita and Elias,
Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding. Always so kind and friendly; it was a pleasure working with both of you. From the moment we first discussed wedding decoration ideas, we knew we were in good hands and the final product was simply amazing. You did such a great job and we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.
Even beyond helping with the wedding decorations, we could tell how much you really cared for our wedding experience. From helping us to find hair/make-up artists to giving us tips on where to buy discount items, you really exceeded our expectations. Planning a wedding is not an easy feat and can be very stressful but knowing that we were working with such professionals that we could count on really eased our minds. Any bride and groom would be lucky to have Sizzle with Decor in their wedding team!
Once again, thank you for all your hard work and dedication.

Dear Estrelita, Elias and Sizzle with Decor,
We would like to thank you for all of your help. When we first started our wedding plans, we went to many vendors, and decorators; and finally we came across your website and fell in love with the beautiful decor showcased in your website. We called you right away for an appointment; you were very professional and booked an appointment right away!
When we met for the first time, we knew you were our number one choice. You took our wedding with great importance and care, as if it was the wedding of one of your family members. Your attention to detail, the love you have for your work, and joy you see in making brides and grooms happy is infectious and made us even more excited for our big day. We always felt taken care of, you were more than a decorator; you helped us with vendors, florists, make-up artists, and even hair stylists! You went above and beyond our expectations and truly gave us the wedding of our dreams. The day of the wedding went without any hiccups and we were able to enjoy the day without any worries, because we knew you and your team were taking care of all the preparations.
Thank you so much for everything,
Roxana and Yassir
Dear Estrelita and Elias,
Thank you for being so dedicated, attentive, reliable, hospitable, organized and professional. You are very passionate and good at what you do and that was clear as of our first discussion. The decor for our wedding was AMAZING. We loved everything and received rave reviews from our guests regarding the gorgeous decor and quality products, such as the specialty linens and stunning, personalized backdrop (it’s exactly what we wanted).
We loved the effect of the red LED lights; it was very tasteful and romantic. There are so many different factors to think of and sometimes worry about when it comes to planning a wedding, but we knew that we were in good hands with you and had no doubt that our venue would look great – it was beautiful!! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding and your decor and services were a big contribution to the success of our special day.

A heartfelt thank you to Elias and Estrelita Aboukassam, owners of Sizzle with Decor, for inviting me to the most glamorous gala evening organized by you and held at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel on Saturday, November 6, 2010 in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. It was a marvelous event which began with cocktails, followed by a sit down gourmet dinner and magnificent dance performances. You brilliantly transformed the room into a glamorous and luxurious setting with your decor savoir-faire that everyone raved about. You certainly know how to bring fun, elegance and glamour to any great event for a great cause.
In April, 2010, we had our annual Daffodil Gala for the Canadian Cancer Society Fundraiser. This is an elegant affair and Sizzle with Decor topped off our hall with very beautiful seat covers. The final touch to a classy evening. The service that Estrelita provided was nothing short of professional and timely. What she said she would do -she did! Right on the mark! Thank you for your extremely professional addition to our event. The hall looked amazing!
M.D.R. Organizing Committee
The organizing committee would like to convey our sincerest gratitude to Elias and Estrelita Aboukkassam of Sizzle with Decor for the excellent services rendered during our Italian Chiurch Madonna della Risurrezione (M.D.R.) annual “Festa delle Coppie” fundraising dinner dance event. Exquisite! Elegant! Beautiful! All these words describe the quality and the overall high standard services rendered to us by Sizzle with Decor for an excellent job, immaculately done with which we were very satisfied. We will certainly use them again when necessary and recommend them with enthusiasm both for their ability and integrity.
-M.D.R. Organizing Committee
It was such a pleasure working with your organization to style our fundraising event in April 2010. Not only was the decor beautiful, but your friendliness and professionalism was very much appreciated. We look forward to working together again in the future.

Dear Estrelita and Elias,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, I extend this note of thanks for your sustained contributions to increasing cancer survivorship in Eastern Ontario. It is an absolute pleasure to have worked with you and your tremendous family for many years and to have seen your Sizzle with Decor business achieve such great success. Your Sizzle with Dance and Sizzle with Style Galas are full of energy, style and passion.
The Foundation is blessed to have over an event a week providing support to us so I can say with confidence that the Sizzle with Style events have grown to be among the most glamorous in the city. And of course, as charitable events in support of the Foundation, these have contributed in a tangible way to building the Maplesoft Cancer Survivorship Centre, the home for our innovative Cancer Survivorship Coaching Programs. You should thus be proud of your place on the Builder’s Wall for the Centre.
And beyond the Galas, your gracious and last‐minute Sizzle With Décor contribution to our Bust a Groove event made the absolute best of an unfortunate cancellation from a service provider. Despite a considerable time constraint, you exceeded all expectations with dazzling creativity, sophisticated product, and exceptional service in a challenging setting. I wish you all the best with the Sizzle with Décor business and look forward to our continued collaboration on the Sizzle with Style and Sizzle with Dance events.
Past Chair, Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation
