About this pro

Back in the "80's" Eddy Murphy wrote a song called "Party all the time" and that's just what I get to do..Party all the time! No matter what type of event it is, wedding, birthday, bridal showers anniversaries and more!

Your Personal Host/Hostess is a mother and son team with over 20 years experience. Your party is our passion!

I personally learned at a very young age that I love being in the hospitality industry. Learning to banquet serve as a young teen and going to corporate runner facilities to mom and pop type restaurants really taught me all sides of being a server. After turning 21, I learned to bartend and quickly learned I absolutely loved it! 

After raising my family and working for others, I decided it was time for me to take my talent to a new level. Hence, Your Personal Hostess was created. After a year of being in service I've have grown needing additional help. So after my son turned 21, I sent him to bartending school and he's the greatest partner I could have ever asked for. I'm truly blessed.

We arrive with bars, tables to use as counter space, black linens, beer and wine tubs, shakers, beer and wine openers, garnish tray holders, (fruit not included) so you need not worry if you don't have work space we come completely prepared. We also provide beverage napkins, straws and stirrers. 

I can create a detailed shopping list for you along with signature cocktails if you need.

We also are properly insured and certified.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile!

We hope to Party with you!

Donna & Tyler Galauskas

Your Personal Host/Hostess

I love the different cultures I get to experience.

All the people I get to meet and create lasting relationships with.

When I created Your Personal Hostess almost four years ago I never thought I would have the clientele that I have now. Being new on Fash I don’t have any reviews however, I can provide many, many references. I take pride in my clients referring me and calling me back year after year.

    Donna and her son were fantastic! I hired them to bartend my wedding and couldn't be happier with their service. They went above and beyond my expectations! While guests were eating they would go table to table gathering any finished cups or plates. They were extremely friendly and I had many guests complimenting them to me. If I ever host a big party again I will definitely be contacting Donna again! Thank you so much for everything you really made our special day that much better!!

    Donna and her team are AMAZING! I first hired Donna for a family Christmas party a few years ago and was very impressed. I gave her a second job with a more significant amount of guests and she once again was amazing. Recently in June 2019 I hired Donna and her team to host a party of 150 guests. WOW did she and her team come through for us. What an amazing time my wife and I were able to have since Donna took care of literally everything. Drinks were amazing, service was amazing and attention to detail off the charts. She stayed well past her end time to ensure clean up was done to a professional standard. I 100% would recommend Donna as your personal hostess. You will not be disappointed!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

First we do a phone interview where I gather as much information about the event as possible. 

Once the client and I agree on what is needed I will than forward an agreement to be signed. A deposit to secure the date requested is advised. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have over 20 years experience. We're properly Bassett Certified. We're always keeping up with the latest drink trends.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Every event is different so pricing varies.

However, prices do include an additional hour and half for set up and clean up. 

Traveling fees are also included up to 25 miles.

How did you get started in this business?

While working in restaurants I was continually asked to come to customers homes to assist them with their parties. 

So I decided to offer this service full time. 

 I’m not limited to private homes. I also go to venues that don’t have a staff, The Forest Preserves, Beaches and Barns.

What types of customers have you worked with?

All walks of life, very affluent to the average Joe.

All very fun people.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Tyler and I just did a I Do BBQ. It was a rehearsal dinner done on the brides childhood home/farm. Simple yet elegant.
