What are your qualifications?

I have been educated through the U.S. Career Institute. I completed the courses and received my certificate. I graduated the top of my class in August of 2009. I was also trained by Julie Renee of Events by Renee, a popular Event and Wedding Planner of the Palm Springs area. Since then I have done many events on my own. 

Why did you want to become an Event and Wedding Planner?

I remember attending weddings when I was a little girl and thinking how amazing it would be just to grow up and have a wedding of my own. Then also having birthday parties that my mom planned and I always loved them. Watching her plan the parties and seeing how important it was to her to make sure all of her children had an incredible experience for their birthdays was amazing its self. 

I did some research once I was out of high school and found that I love every detail that goes into planning events so I went to school to get my qualifications and earn my certificate. 

In my eyes Event and Wedding planning is a very important job. It is a fast paced demanding job and I love every minute of it. I love planning and being organized and all the aspects of events and weddings. From the flowers to the theme to the location choices and of course meeting new people. That's why I opened my own business. 

Will I lose control of my wedding if you are planning it for me?

Not at all. My goal is to give you the peace of mind that comes with trusting we are taking care of every detail and event scheduled on your wedding day. During the planning process, I will give you guidance and suggestions, but you make all of the final decisions. I will handle as little or as much as you would like.

Will you work with vendors I have already found or people I really want to work with?

Yes, I will gladly work with any vendor, friend or family member you select for your special day. I have hundreds of venues and excellent vendors in my database that I can refer, but you are free to select the vendors of your choice.

Can I afford an event planner?

Price is affected by the selection of packages or individual services that you choose and the complexity of your event. It is my responsibility to keep your expenses at or even below your budget.

Do you have a payment plan?

Yes we can arrange a payment plan that is convenient and fits into your schedule.

Thanksgiving Day is traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal. Why not make a nice party out of it. There is so much you can do either around the house or in town. Thanksgiving Day parades are held in some cities and towns on or around Thanksgiving Day. You could even take a trip to Plymouth, Massachusetts where the original Thanksgiving took place. If you are just around the house you can arrange a football game or corn hole. You can also put out arts and crafts for the kids to play with or play some games thanksgiving games such as; gourd games, thanksgiving bingo, or a scavenger hunt. Also put out some things to play dress up like pilgrim hats, aprons, Indian head dresses and turkey hats.

For other ideas for Thanksgiving you can look at these sites:

Election Party

Whomever you are voting for a great way to celebrate and to be around friends is to have a election party. After all, the winner will be leading the United States for the next four years. It will also help you stay awake while you wait for all those Pacific Time Zone states to turn in their results, I recommend an Election Night Party. Since this is a patriotic occasion, you don't have to think long and hard about your color scheme for decorations, tablecloths, and party goods. You can also put together a buffet menu that pays tribute to the home states of the President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.

Wedding Invitations

Like any other invitation, it is the privilege and duty of the host to issue invitations, either by sending them herself or causing them to be sent, either by enlisting the help of relatives or friends. Etiquette regarding the text on a formal wedding invitation varies according to country, culture and language. Traditionally, wedding invitations are mailed in double envelopes. The inner envelope may be lined, is not gummed, and fits into the outer envelope. The outer envelope is gummed for sealing and addressing. Guests should be asked to have their reply given between 3 and 2 weeks before the wedding date.

Fall Fundraising

Every season should be time for charitable giving. Organizing a fall party with a purpose is much easier now that school is in session. Fall fundraising can take place at an apple orchard, a school cafeteria, or even in someone's backyard. You  could also sell potted holiday plants like mums & poinsettias, or sell holiday wreaths. One other fun way to get the whole community involved is to have a Fall Carnival.

Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival celebrating beer held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Since you can't always get up and travel there, why not throw an Octoberfest of your own. Instead of a 16- day festival try one day with family and friends. Root beer for the kids or cream soda since they look a little like beer and for the adults have beer. You can also throw in some games like corn hole and bob for apples. Or build a picture stand out of plywood and paint beer maidens or other folk on them and cut out the faces. If you need a few more ideas feel free to let me know. Happy Octoberfest!
