When Ellia’s mom Angie approached me about being her event planner for one special birthday party, it was really just confirmation of something that I had been thinking about for years. I have such a broad skill set… photography, graphic design, sewing, decorating, baking, a tinge of floral design, prop creator… and I felt that I was only using a percentage of what I can do. Someone gave a word of knowledge at church one sunday morning, of just that, not using all of your God given talents, and that same day the birth of the northwest indiana event stylist, southwest michigan event stylist, was born.
I’ll be adding selective Event Styling & Planning to my service offerings when we transition to the new website. For now, if you have questions, feel free to email me… email@example.com
I love this family! They really are such sweet people, and their darling Ellia was going to have one fabulous party to celebrate her first birthday, and the completion of their family. The theme was shabby chic baby, which I of course already was enthralled with. It really was a perfect fit and I loved every. single. detail.
The event was for 50, and held at Knox Community Center. Angie was able to borrow all the china, silverware, and numerous other pretties from various sweet ladies. With the help of my husband Nathan, and my mother too, I styled the room, and had everything set up and ready for the family to just walk in.
I’m still swooning over the wonderful memories from the day… like their sweet faces when they first saw the room, and the general delight of the guests. It was dreamy!

Several months ago I was contacted by someone in Tennessee to design a birth announcement. By communicating via email and looking at images of the babies nursery, I was able to come up with a design that the client loved. Her photographer, Brandy Jaggers did an amazing job with the newborn photography, and the whole design came together perfectly. The bamboo paper gave a soft luxurious feel to the card, and we turned the orientation of the accordion card to better fit the images. I love how they turned out, and was glad for the opportunity to create something special for the new addition to the family.

The mini accordion albums came in from this Little One’s session and I thought I’d show you a little peak! Everyone seems loves these handy albums, as they are perfect for a purse, fridge, or desk. It really is a great way to show of your family! And it comes with most sessions!
