My father turned 90 and on 09/17/2016 we had a large birthday party for him. We chose the Winter Haven Garden and Banquet Center as he is a Winter Haven resident, so it was in close proximity to him and his guests. But what we got was more than we expected. For one thing, right off the bat, the staff was very polite and listened carefully to what we told them and they had ideas as well to the decorating and color scheme using his favorite colors and hobbies. Everything was done according to his likes and dislikes and his life. Mary Lamb, who coordinated this party was knowledgeable and friendly and helpful from day one and all the way to the end of the event. The banquet room was spacious and all the guests were comfortable. I feel that anyone could have any kind of event there and be more than satisfied.
