How many kids do you have and what are their ages?
Two kiddos, 6 & 9
How long have you lived in Columbus and what made you decide to live here?
6.5 years. We lived here for a year during my husbands training over 8 years ago and couldn’t wait to move back when he got hired in the area again.
What is your favorite family activity?
We love wandering different towns and city’s. The day usually involves ice cream and kid centered activities.
What do you love about living in Columbus?
I love the small town feel but the big city access to restaurants, art, and entertainment.
Tell us about your business and how it came about.
We provide custom event decor and Photo Booth rentals for parties of all sizes and styles. I have always enjoyed throwing parties and decorating for friends and family. Finally after starting a family and moving A LOT we got settled here and I knew it was time to make my dream a reality.
What do you love about your business?
I love getting to know my clients and seeing their families change and grow through showers, birthdays, weddings, and more!
What advice would you give someone who is planning a party or event?
Before getting started, decide what is most important to you and what you want your guests to experience and remember. This will help guide you in planning and picking the right vendors.
What does a typical day look like for you?
The day begins with getting my kids fed and ready for school. Half of the mornings I get to hang with my kindergartener (he loves mommy lunch dates at Panera). The other half I spend communicating with clients, ordering supplies, designing, and bringing their visions to life. When my kiddos get home from school I pretty much shift to being a chauffeur!
How do you juggle work and being a mom?
Being in the party business this can be hard as most events are nights and weekends. I make sure that we plan family weekends away and always clear my schedule for their special activities and performances. You can’t get these days back as a mom!
What is the best piece of advice you have received from another mom?
You know your kid better than anyone, trust your gut.
