ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Gal Pal Friday (GPF) is a unique new concept in the field of personal entertaining and assistance. The company specializes in assisting their clients with dinner parties, special gatherings, wine and beer pairings, travel planning, personal shopping, gift wrapping, and holiday decor and has officially launched their services in the greater Orange and Los Angeles Counties.
The concept evolved in Summer 2010 when GPF's founder, Sophia Paliov, was planning her own barbeque bash while holding down a full time job and taking care of an ill parent. She found the stress of having to do it all herself was overwhelming and was taking the joy out of the experience. Not wanting to ask for help, she desperately wished she could hire an assistant for a couple of hours a day to lend a hand with mailing invitations, purchasing groceries and obtaining decorations; a situation that would require little exertion but running the errands and overseeing the effort.
Sophia realized that there must be individuals, such as business men and women, working parents, and couples planning their own weddings, for example, who need that extra assistance in executing their parties, dinners or more.
"With today's hectic schedule even the simple thought of hosting a dinner party and gathering or planning a trip can seem overwhelming, that's why I created Gal Pal Friday. Having that extra help but still allowing the client to have control and take credit for their event or planned trips is what the company is about," explains founder Sophia Paliov.
GPF offers an array of services that can be suited to the clients' exact needs. Dinner parties or small events, GPF can assist with menu selections, invitation mailings and tracking of RSVP's, picking up and delivering the groceries, recommendations for party set up and decor, help in food preparation and set-up and assist in clean up. GPF also specializes in wine and beer pairings which can be added to any event. The travel planning service includes researching destinations, flight options, car services and tour companies, restaurant bookings, as well as creating a detailed travel itinerary. GPF also offers personal gift shopping and gift wrapping, clients can simply specify what their needs are and GPF will make every attempt to find and deliver it to the recipient. Lastly, GPF offers night-on-the-town inquiries and securing venues; from limo's to concerts, theater/musicals and dinner reservations.
