“Welcome – I can’t wait to work with you!”

Life is full of beautiful reasons to step out of your normal routine and celebrate.  A spectacular wedding weekend hand crafted to honor your unique personalities and celebrate true love is one of the very best reasons! However, even a brunch with old friends, a new addition to the family, or a well-earned retirement deserves that special touch to mark the occasion.  At The Happy Hour Hostess, I believe that these moments are the sweet spot in life, and they are not only worth celebrating, but celebrating well.  When taking the time to relax and honor these moments, we create memories and bonds that last a lifetime.

A major obstacle to giving these moments their proper due is the creativity, time and effort it takes to make a memorable event.  That is when you call me! My name is Carrie and I am creative, crafty and dedicated to making that special occasion a signature moment in your life.   I love working with clients to develop a vision, add details galore and design a unique event to honor the celebration.  An important goal is that my clients fully enjoy the planning process and are able to relax and appreciate the occasion as much as their guests.

I want to make your event the party that everyone talks about for weeks to come.   My favorite things about event planning are selecting the perfect color scheme, adding unexpected details and finding ways to bring your guests together.   I believe that we can create the perfect stage, and that the people make the party; I love designing opportunities for strangers to easily interact.   I am ready to make your celebration an event to remember and the talk of the town.  Call me; I would love to get the chance to work for you!
