Surviving is important. Thriving is elegant.
— Maya Angelou
Kith and Kin means “friends and family” in Old English. It seemed like the perfect name for a business that is all about bringing family and friends — be they newly-minted or held dear for years and years — together to share important moments.
I know what makes a party flow and how to show guests they are appreciated and loved. Whether it’s an elegant dinner party for two or a full-on bash for two hundred, you can have a gathering that is beautiful, authentic and unique. I would be honored to help you create your event.
Kith & Kin starts at the very beginning. We’ll meet to talk about what you have in mind, your dates, your budget, etc.
Once booked, we’ll map out a ‘backwards calendar’ from the day of our first working meeting through to the day of the event and afterwards, sketching out deadlines for decisions and book-by dates to ensure that you get the venue and vendors you want.
From there, we’ll create a personalized binder to collect colors, images and ideas that will be the jumping off point for your event and be used as a reference throughout the planning process. We’ll gather samples for you to consider. If you have a firm budget, we’ll map out a hierarchy of must-haves. And if you already know what you want, we can jump right into timelines and activities.
I love nothing more than to craft exceptional, unique and memorable occasions, and I look forward to working with you.
