About Me

My photo
The passion for events runs in my blood, my mom has been planning private events ever since I was a little girl and she always relied on me in the party planning. She gave me the job of setting the tables which has led to my enthusiasm for decorating. I learned from my experience to use new and creative ways to plan and design every event at any price point.

Halloween Fun!


I am not into the scary Halloween decorations so I thought I would show you some fun and festive decor for this October 31st holiday!


A candy buffet can take the place of your traditional bowl of candy.


Your pumpkin carving fun can double as a ice or drink bucket.


I love this drink station above, it is the perfect mix of creepy and creative.


Grab your extra voltive candles and a bottle of black puffy paint for these DIY candles.

Trick-or-Treaters will love receiving these cute bags
filled with anything from candy to a tooth brush.

Wise Old Owl...


I just wanted to share a little advice from a wise old owl....if you want to be treated like a professional in any workplace then you need to act like one. Working on many weddings and events I have seen many vendors come and go. If you want to be put on someones recommended vendors list then you need to work to the best of your ability, be on time, be courteous, and put others above yourself. As our Mothers have taught from early on," treat others how you want to be treated". It is as easy as speaking kindly, going the extra mile and admitting and apologizing if you make a mistake. As my husband always says," You get more from Sugar than you do with Vinegar". Thanks and happy working....-xoxo

White Trash Party

This past July I threw Ian, his Mother, and our Brother-In-Law a White Trash Party!
This style party was kind of hard for me to plan because I am used to planning nice, pretty, perfect, organized, clean, and well decorated parties and this was exactly the opposite.... Most of the decor items came from the Dollar Tree, 99 cent stores, and thrift shops!

Our lovely Guests


My Family

Refreshments

Decor

Me my Man



The birthday boy

We had a sunflower seed spitting contest, guess the boys butt contest,bottle cap between the butt cheeks relay race, beer pong, King and Queen of the trailer park contest and a lot more fun stuff for all our guests to feel right at home!!! We had fun, laughed a lot, and made a ton of memories!!
