California Academy of Science

We have used Renda Dabit and HennaGarden at the California Academy of Sciences’ Annual Black Tie Ball for several years.  They are fabulous!  Extremely professional, easy to work with, great costumes and ideas, great henna, face painting and crystal tattoos.  The guests love them.  I would recommend them to anyone for any event.

Last year’s adventure featuring Hollywood to Bollywood theme was perhaps the most successful event Academy of Friends Events ever had. She [Renda Dabit, Executive Director] worked well with our complex budgets and timelines proving her a great team player and producer. I would recommend her without hesitation for any large and challenging project.

Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco

Renda Dabit of Henna Garden has provided numerous valuable resources to the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s education department for blockbuster exhibitions such as Eternal Egypt:  Masterworks of Ancient Art from the British Museum and Hatshepsut:  From Queen to Pharaoh.  Because of Renda and Henna Gardens the Legion of Honor and the de Young Museums are able to bring a variety of middle-eastern influenced performing groups, artists, historical and contemporary lecture presentations to our visitors . This is an essential component of the museum’s mission to educate ourselves and others on  cultures around the world thus enriching our visitors’ and our own perspectives, values and lives.

Renda is extremely creative, energetic and visionary on her approach to developing concepts and ideas tailoring them to the needs of the institution.  Thanks to her, our programs have been very successful and I am looking forward to how our fall
season unfolds as we embark on a series focusing on Hatshepsut:  From Queen to Pharaoh when the new de Young Museum opens on October 15, 2005.

Thank you for all of your hard work, great ideas, and invaluable creative input on all of the events we have planned together. Our Hollywood to Bollywood party was a huge success, and our client was most complimentary about HennaGarden. With your attention to detail, reflected in the beautiful and authentic costuming of your artist’s, coupled with the superior quality of their work, and your genuine concern to create a fun, up beat party atmosphere, I always know that Henna Garden will turn any event into a “Great Party”.

You’re the best!

OpenDoor Events, Inc.

HennaGarden provided us with entertainment for our Moroccan themed launch party and our guests were truly amazed and impressed.  The entertainment, props and management were outstanding and we would never hesitate to call on them in the future.

The Branson School

I had the pleasure of working with Renda Dabit and Henna Garden Productions in conjunction with the Safe Grad Night for the BransonSchool.   Her efforts on behalf of our event were outstanding.  Being able to work with one person who provided most of the entertainment and décor for the evening made it the planning go seamlessly and more easily.

The highlight of the event was a troupe of hip-hop dancers who choreographed a performance especially for the evening.  Renda put together the whole group – from various contacts that she had in the local entertainment industry.  The result was the most amazing dance performance at 1 am.  The kids were enthralled!  I certainly could not have done something like this on my own.  It MADE the event.

Renda and her staff are all so pleasant and easy to work with.  She followed through on all the arrangements we had agreed upon and she is extremely creative and flexible.

I would recommend Renda Dabit and Henna Garden for your next event!

Everything was superb — the quality of the performers was wonderful — all 60 of them!  I was particularly delighted with the cross-cultural variety of all the performers…Your people really made the difference between a good event and a memorable one.  You made it so easy and we will absolutely use Henna Garden again for our next big event!

Yahoo! Inc.

From intern parties, to company picnics and holiday parties, the themes have varied from Mardi gras, Pirates of the Caribbean, to Yahoo! Oasis … Set décor for the hookah lounge was perfectly authentic and functional for the many guests who visited the lounge.  Henna Garden’s vision for innovation and design is right on the mark…Renda is always good about working within our budget and finding ways of being creative to meet our needs.

The Mac Observer

Henna Garden has been a part of our Cirque du Mac party at Macworld Expo for every bit of our 10 year history and has truly helped define the success of this event. Without Renda and all of her artists and performers our party wouldn’t nearly be as fun and unique as it is. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we wouldn’t want to do a party without Henna Garden being involved. Thank you SO much for everything you’ve done with us, and we’re looking forward to year eleven! :)

Miramonte High School

Miramonte High School joins the legions of fans across the Bay Area in recommending Henna Garden for festivals, graduation events, and other venues.  The patient, engaging, and hard working Henna Garden crew of henna artists, and chair and foot masseuses was fully appreciated by Miramonte’s graduating class.

de Young Museum

We were truly honored to have you at the event. I saw the children walking around the event, they were miniature masterpieces! You and your team are unbelievably talented. We have heard rave reviews about the face painting, and I must say those custom Hockney designs came out BEAUTIFULLY.

We will absolutely be reaching out to you and your team for future events.
