What is Your Typical Day Like?
A typical day for me as the owner of Simply PerKfect Event Boutique is a bit unique. Therefore, my attention on the business mainly happens in the morning (my favorite time of day) and on the weekends.
A typical event planning day for me is to start by reviewing my daily task list prioritized highest to lowest and what needs to be addressed immediately. It can be either posting on our Facebook page, updating our blog, tweeting, marketing, typing up contracts or just returning emails and phone calls. I at least spend 1 hour a day thinking about how to keep my business up to date with new ideas and clients. I also ready daily celebrity planner blogs and books once a week to stay informed of new and fresh ideas. I do inventory, business budget and client budgets twice a week depending on how many events we have scheduled for the upcoming week.
Event planning is my passion and I absolutely love every moment. With all of the things I do on my working days, I love to spend time with my wonderful family when I’m not working, My Husband and three beautiful children (Son 13, and girl’s 6 & 1) very active children and let’s not forget about my AMAZING GOD!!!

How Did You Get Started In the Industry?
I always knew that I wanted to have my own business but wasn’t sure what that was. Before starting the business, I was responsible for designing many successful events for family, friends. Many people would call me for ideas and would always encourage me to pursue event planning as a career. It is truly my passion. I find my design Inspiration with the clients dream for their event. I thrive on creating Luxury Services were they will have both a pleasurable and memorable experience. So here it is I’m living my Dream…. Simply PerKfect Event Boutique.

Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, These four objects that a bride is supposed to have on her wedding day are meant as good luck charms and each have separate meanings. Each item serves a different purpose and, collectively, they bring good luck to the marriage.

•Something old symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and past history.
•Something new represents optimism and hope for the bride’s future.
•Something borrowed is supposed to represent borrowed happiness, and be obtained from a happily married relative or friend whose good fortune in marriage will hopefully carry over to the bride.
•Something blue started in Ancient Rome, when brides began to wear blue to represent love, fidelity and modesty.

Here are a few ideas:

Garter: Don’t worry about that “something blue” throwing off your color scheme, because it’s trendy to have that one color that pops.

Lingerie: Same here don’t worry about it because its part of the an undergarment.
