    We wanted to plan a 50th wedding anniversary party for our parents and were pleased to find Linda. Since the 'kids' were all from out of town, she met with our parents in person and by phone to set the menu and she scouted out the yard for tent sizes and tables and chairs. The party came off with out a hitch, the food and cake were terrific and Linda was very responsive by email and phone for any clarifications! We couldn't have asked for things to go smoother and Linda and her group were just terrific to work with!

How did you get started doing this type of work?

A fund-raising event that was a year in the planning. The event entailed marketing, publicity, connecting with local businesses for donations, scheduling entertainment, and day of coordination.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for experience, knowledge of event planning and decorating, detail-oriented, a sharp eye for creativity, and an ability to understand what YOU want to achieve. Find someone who can think outside the box, and have contingency plans in place for the "what if's". And above all, someone who thinks of YOUR budget as "their money".
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Gathering a proposed guest list and having a menu idea is key to determining the type of facility they'll want to look at, no matter what type of event they're planning.
