SoFortWorthIt LOVES Entertaining

Entertaining is the name of my game. It’s by far the hobby I’m most passionate about. From easy backyard BBQ’s to elaborate formal seated dinners, I’ll show you how to make any event fabulous…from simple to extravagant, I’ve got you covered!

Building and designing a tablescape is my FAVORITE way to release creative energy. From a hot chocolate/coffee bar to full catered buffets, I’ll teach you simple tricks and tips that will inspire you to recreate that special look in your own style.

I have worked with some of the best florist and event planners in the metroplex and beyond. We’ll peek behind-the-scenes of charity events, extravagant galas, and fabulous parties with top people in the industry. You won’t want to miss it!

Speaking of florists, I absolutely love to do my own floral – but I’ve learned to delegate this task to the peeps who do this stuff full time. Seriously, time management is super important when it comes to entertaining, and no one has time to stay up till 1AM arranging flowers, especially the night before a big event. Lesson learned.
