Owner & Creative Director, Soireé Event Design
Hey party peeps! I am a BUSY mother of 5 and LOVE LOVE LOVE design & events! I’ve been an entrepreneur in the entertainment business for 10+ years with a very successful graphic design studio & have been styling events for the last 5 years. Recently, I launched Soiree Event Design which is a fusion of my graphic design studio and event boutique so I can have the best of both worlds– all with a supportive hubby, preschooler full of shenanigans, grade school daughter who loves parties, tween conquering middle school, 18 year old son who just joined the US NAVY and a 23-year-old living his dream as a rapper in LA! WHEW!
To all my fellow moms and girlfriends out there who are swamped and busy with work and “mommyhood” but want to throw FABULOUS events for your children and friends but have NO IDEA WHAT TO DO AND NO TIME TO DO IT….SOIREE EVENT DESIGN’S BLOG IS FOR YOU!
