WHEN DID YOU REALIZE THAT YOU HAD A KNACK FOR THE CREATIVE?
In 2003, I became a certified wedding and event planner, but it was not until I took a Merchandising course, that I realized my love for all things creative. Making this career move, has really made me think outside of the box. It has caused me to create my famous “Panty Bouquet,” in addition to the single panty roses and panty cupcakes. Most popular for bachelorette parties and bridal showers. My knack for the creative allows me to create new and innovative ideas that compliment traditional pieces.

TO DATE WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE EVENT AND WHY?
To date, my favorite event has been A “Sweet Six”. It was a modern twist on the sweet sixteen or the classic sixth birthday. We had slideshows, a mini dance recital, dancing, music and mini-activity stations. Trends show that children’s parties are getting bigger and bigger. The Sweet Six was the perfect size. It allowed there to be a This event had a quaint and playful feel. The guests of honor wore tutu dresses designed by Creative Elegance. And featured a candy table/bar that the kids could enjoy. The menu consisted of modern, yet sophisticated kid friendly food. It gave Creative Elegance freedom for creativity. It is definitely a new signature in the Creative Elegance vault.

IF YOU WERE GOING TO GIVE ADVICE TO SOMEONE WITH A FLAIR FOR THE CREATIVE LIKE YOURSELF, THAT WAS JUST STARTING OUT WHAT WOULD IT BE?
The advice I would give to an upcoming individual with that creative flair is to be true to themselves, and to live their truth. Let your individuality shine through and do not compromise yourself to “fit in”. You are creative, you were meant to STAND OUT.
