“Be a guest at your own simcha”. This is a line, I’d heard many times over the last 2 years. But is that really possible? Idit Ginsberg / Dash of Sparkle proved that it is absolutely the case! From the moment we engaged with Idit, a year before our simcha, I knew we had made the right decision. Want a recommendation from Idit? (sparkly dancefloor? Photobooth?), she has the contacts. Want to bring in your own entertainer / decorations etc?, then not a problem – Idit will work with them all happily. Idit was always at the end of the phone when we needed her, responded to emails within minutes sometimes (We REALLY valued this), and was able to offer help, support and guidance with all of our plans. In the run up to the big day, we had reminders from Idit about things we need to think about, things we hadn’t considered and advice about the small touches that make the day. Days beforehand Idit took all of our ‘things’ – table plan, gifts for best friend speeches, kippot, menu cards, novelties and t-shirts which meant we didn’t have to think about these things again – certainly less things to remember to bring on the big day. Our floorplan and timing plan were put together by Idit. She liaised between the venue, caterer, DJ, table decorations, entertainers, and other suppliers to ensure they all knew what was going on. Last minute seating plan change? Best friend speeches, require a video / song? None of this was an issue, we simply directed everything and everyone towards Idit. On the day itself, Idit worked tirelessly for 12 hours, ensuring that the venue looked perfect – we literally turned up for photos at 4pm, with all of the work done. Her attention to detail was superb. Behind the scenes, she ensured the name cards were laid out, the speech presents were in the right place, the toilets had little baskets of pot pouri/plasters/mints/even cans of deodorant!, the timing plan was followed, whilst all the time liaising between the caterer and the DJ. We didn’t need to clock-watch once. She prepared the novelties, handed out t-shirts…I could go on and on….. Idit is not one of these party planners that stands in the middle of the dancefloor shouting orders – she gets on with her job effectively in the background. Most of our guests wouldn’t have even known she was there. Idit was always in the right place at the right time. We are so glad that we used Dash of Sparkle for our event. Would thoroughly recommend Idit for any simcha.
Stephen Gafson, Daughter’s Batmitzvah
“Thank you so much Idit to you and your team for making Tehilla’s bat mitzvah so totally spectacular! You were the most awesome organiser and it was the most wonderfully special night. So many people have commented on how beautiful the room was with all the fantastic decorations and special touches. It was a seamless night and we couldn’t have done it without you. You are AMAZING 💕🎉”
Lucy Rome, Daughter’s Batmitzvah
“We just wanted to say a huge thank you, Idit, for all your help with our batmitzvah party. It was a fantastic night! The room looked amazing and the organisation was great. Everything ran smoothly and we were able to relax and just really enjoy the night, as did all the guests.”
Yakir Zur, Daughter’s Batmitzvah
“Thank you Idit for your excellent organisational skills and sourcing the perfect centrepieces that fitted my requirements for my daughters Batmitzvah brilliantly!! I thoroughly recommend your company to everyone needing a friendly, efficient and talented person to help organise your event!”
Janis Kenton, Daughter’s Batmitzvah
“Idit is truly our fairy godmother. After our marquee supplier badly let us down at the last minute she waved her magic wand to transform a tired-looking hall into a fabulous party venue. Idit managed to plan and implement an entire bat mitzvah in only 48 hours. It all looked amazing, and her calm confident aura let us know that we were in good hands from the moment we met her. If only Facebook allowed 10 stars – she would get them.”
Wendy Lever, Daughter’s Batmitzvah
“Just wanted to let you know that the party went off a storm on Saturday and the room looked amazing, the showgirls were a big hit as well. Thank you for all your help. I am already thinking about what we could do next year.”
Claire Collins, BMI Healthcare Christmas party
“We found Idit through Facebook in 2015 (more than 2 years before our Bar Mitzvah). She helped us bring our vision to life and over 24 months answered every email and question we had immediately. She was thoroughly positive throughout, always there for us and helped create what turned out to be an absolutely memorable and awesome party with food, entertainment and ambiance (furniture and room set-up) so there was something for kids and adults alike – a night we will never forget!”
Caroline Garfinkel, Son’s Barmitzvah, Mill Hill United Synagogue
“Idit is fabulous. From start to finish she went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect for our son’s barmitzvah. On the day she was on hand to deal with all the minor details so we could relax and enjoy our special day. Thank you so much for everything.”
Lauren Mailich, Son’s Barmitzvah
“Thank you so much from all of us. We were totally relaxed in the build-up and yesterday and a large part of that was down to you and your help. We had an amazing time – thank you for keeping everything on track!”
Simon Mott-Cowan, Daughter’s Batmitzvah, Elstree Studios
“Idit was so professional to deal with from beginning to end. Always there to help and answer my many emails. She was invaluable to us and the whole event ran so smoothly. I would not hesitate in recommending her and we are definitely going to be using dash of sparkle again at our next Batmitzvah.”
Judith Green, Daughter’s Batmitzvah
“Dash of Sparkle transformed a buzzing family day cafe into a stunning evening themed party venue for my wife’s 40th Birthday party. Idit is so friendly, enthusiastic, consultative, organised and prompt and managed to bring all ideas to life with a highly personalised and stylish result that was packed full of beautiful details. My wife was utterly delighted with the result and many guests commented on how great it looked; it was the underpinning for a fabulous party!”
Duncan Casemore, Wife’s 40th Birthday, St Albans Cafe
“I just wanted to say that Idit helped us have the most incredible evening for our sons Bar mitzvah. She allowed us to relax and party the night away knowing that everything was taken care of both before and during the event. Thanks so much.”
Jamie Claret, Son’s Barmitzvah at Elstree Studios, Elstree
Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We had a great time yesterday and everything went so smoothly and stress free. It was great not having to worry about anything. The room looked wonderful. Thanks for being so easy to work with.
Ruth and David Zeidman, Son’s Barmitzvah at 96 Shenley Road, Borehamwood
Dear Idit, How do I even start to try and explain to you how thankful I am for EVERYTHING you have done for my big day! If it wasn’t for your fantastic organisation skills, brilliant ideas and wonderful problem solving I dread to think where I would be! You have been like my fairy God Mother, I feel as though you’ve known me forever. I could never have imagined how easy you would make this for me. I cannot sing your praises enough! Idit, you are VERY talented and have an amazing personality! Thank you so much !
Emma and Chris Cook, Wedding at Bayfordsbury Mansion, Bayford
Words cannot express our sincere thanks to Idit for the help and kindness before and during Sheryl and James’s wedding. Her patience was unending, and she was always there with new ideas. Thank you Dash of Sparkle for adding a dash of sparkle to our day!
Nanette and Philip Genender, Wedding at Tewinbury Farm, Welyn
I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Idit Ginsberg at Dash of Sparkle for all your help and support when I was planning my daughter’s bat mitzvah! Your expert advice and guidance steered me right every time and the end result was spectacular!! The venue looked even better than I had imagined it would, the atmosphere was fabulous and my guests raved about everything from start to finish. Having DOS there was the best decision I could have made – you made it possible for me to relax and enjoy our special day without having to worry about a thing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Ronit Gerber, Daughter’s Bat Mitzvah at Holiday Inn, Elstree
You were a pleasure to work with, your passion & vision for my wedding. You’re enthusiastic and you care. I like that. Your attention to detail, your organisational skills and patience throughout, I know at times I was a handful but you were always patient, realistic & on the ball! Thank u again. You’ve been a star and trust me this is not the last of us working together!
Heather Chitate, Wedding at Sopwell House, St Albans
Dash of Sparkle went the extra mile, by talking us through decisions at all hours, liaising with the people we were using for the event, reminding us of what we had to do, etc. Idit was there on the day, quietly organizing all the little things that we hadn’t given any thought to. Despite our constant mind-changing and particular needs, she always listened to us and followed up on our requests – nothing was ever too much trouble. Idit has good contacts and great ideas and was honestly no more expensive than had we organized the event ourselves. Mostly, though, she heard our needs and directed us brilliantly.
Brendi Waks, Daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in Marquee at her home, Radlett
Where would I be without you? You calmed my nervous and completely saw my vision. I felt like I went back in time and danced the night away in the Jazz club where I met my hubby. Am so lucky to have found you! Thank you for all your hard work.
Vinnette Melbourne, 50th Wedding Anniversary, Holiday Inn, Elstree
Really enjoyed myself! Listened to the talk on relationships, loved my hot stone massage and wish I had more time to shop. What an amazingly well organized exhibition! Will definitely be back for more!
Alyson Bernard, Visitor at the Gateway2Wellbeing Exhibition
Thanks Idit, You’ll be the first call I make if I do something like this again!

Thanks again for all your help, you ended up saving us a lot of money and I am grateful. I shall be sure to recommend you to friends I know planning an event in the future.

The day went very well and we all had a great time. Thank you so much for all your help. I couldn’t have done it without your support.

We recently had our son’s barmitzvah organised through Dash of Sparkle. Both Idit and Mazi were a pleasure to deal with and extremely efficient. Everything looked great and we were very happy with the end results. We had fantastic feedback from our guests about the food and decorations, everyone had a brilliant time. the meals were excellently presented and so delicious. Overall, Idit and Mazi made our day. Thank you!
