They got married at Landis Valley Museum. Their main concern was their guest experience. They wanted their guests to know where to go, what was happening and to of course, have a great time! They more than accomplished this through having a live band, a cigar station in the courtyard and by having a great plan for the day. While they did lots of pre-planning and work, on their big day, they sat back and enjoyed themselves as I took over. This was one of my favorite weddings of the season!
This was a baby shower that I hosted for my friend Leah. I chose owls as my theme, and my mom graciously and expertly helped me make plush varieties to use as decor. I had seen them somewhere, and she helped make a pattern and sewed them together. She also made the bunting I hung over the space. It was a big room, so I wanted something that would brighten it up and tie in with everything else I was doing. It was a small shower, so I had all the food arranged on the tables so my guests didn't have to go anywhere.
This was in the early days of my planning career. I helped my sister plan a vow renewal for her and her husband's anniversary. I helped with booking a caterer, invitations, decor, set-up, clean-up, and finding a photographer. I have learned a lot since then, but everybody starts somewhere!
Asher turned 1, and his mom wanted to have a party for family and friends. I helped her with ideas and pre-planning for the menu. I took care of the guest table and food table decor.
For this event, I was responsible for day-of-coordinating. I was also there for rehearsal the night before and then helped with set-up and clean-up on the day of the wedding. The bride's family and bridal party helped to set up the reception area, but I helped set up final details like the lawn games and ceremony decor. Emma also took advantage of some of my rental items: chalkboard, suitcases, and cylinder vases.

I planned and executed a baby shower for my good friend Christina. It included an "Aesop's Fables" theme with an italian soda bar and chalkboard favors, all nods to certain aspects of the mother-to-be. We had soup, salad, and bread with delicious cake compliments of the Country Table Bakery. After a blessing from Christina's mom, guests introduced themselves and enjoyed the light menu. During gift opening, guests were invited to embroider woodland creatures that the grandmothers would later turn into a felt book for the expected baby. I was responsible for invites, decor.
I hosted a small baby shower for my best friend. The guest list included just our college friends, and it was a very intimate affair. I was responsible for the entire event from start to finish.
Green Meadow Farm is a local ministry that my husband and I support. Every year, they have a fundraiser and lawn party so people can see what is new at the farm and get involved in different ways. I helped with decor for the horse sponsorship table, where people could get information about being a sponsor, and the welcome table, where guests checked in for the event. This past year, I served as coordinator so that the operators of the farm could mingle with crowds visiting that day.
Randy and Lisa planned an intimate wedding with family and close friends. She asked me for help with a simple bouquet and boutonniere for them and some simple decor for their house, as the reception was held at their residence. I chose winter whites with some rustic elements as the wedding was in January.
