Parties with Michelle Farmer
About this pro
I would whole heartedly recommend having Michelle Farmer plan your party or event. Prior to using her services I had the pleasure of attending a bachelorette party, wedding shower, and baby shower planned and organized by her. Each had a wonderful theme that was tasteful, with unique and hand crafted touches that served as keepsakes for the guest and honoree. You could tell she had developed a rapport with the client, catering staff, and venue staff. The events felt relaxed and fun, but at the same time in retrospect you could tell there was no awkward moments as things naturally progressed from games, gift openings, eating and chatting, all while she worked unobtrusively to see to the needs of the hostess and guests. As an Executive Assistant and Meeting Planner, I admired her tact, poise, and welcoming demeanor at each event. The hostesses have all sung her praise and it prompted me to use her for an event of my own. She worked tirelessly and delivered a flawless evening for myself and my friends. She graciously assisted in the development of a theme that fit my tastes and gave valuable input on how it could be tailored to me personally. Her work with the menu took into account varied tastes and budget along with the theme. She also provided hand crafted items to compliment the décor that set the evening apart and were practically Martha. Definitely use her services if you are able to set you apart from the other rounds of dinner parties and showers.Dec 6, 2016
Michelle Farmer helped me plan and coordinate my wedding rehearsal dinner at my home in September 2015. I did not want a typical sit down dinner more like a casual buffet. Michele helped me research costs for food and decorations to stay within my budget. The day of the party she was on site to set everything up and run the party for me. All I had to do was greet guests, relax and enjoy. She's a hard-working lady! I would definitely book her again for an event!Oct 25, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?What I like to do first is to talk to you on the phone to get a sense of what you're looking for, talk to you about your budget, what you've seen, and the kind of style you're looking at and if anything has already been booked or bought. I want to get a sense of where you are in your planning process and how I can help.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been planning large scale events for over 10 years as part of my job and parties and weddings for my friends and families for years.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always coordinated weddings and special events for friends and family. Last year my friend approached me about helping her plan a pre-wedding party for out of town guests and actually wanted to pay me to help her. I was shocked and she was like you do a fantastic job and you should be paid. So now I am trying to build my business outside of my circle of friends.
