Pittsburgh Event Planner | Buddy's Bar

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is by making Buddy the Elf appear! During the Holiday Season, {SHE} prepped for Santa’s arrival with a holiday pop-up bar inspired by the movie “ELF” at Hotel Monaco. The Commoner at Hotel Monaco was transformed into a winter wonderland when Veronica’s Balloon Design decked the halls with their Christmas themed balloons. Their custom Christmas trees and swirly-twirly gum drop balloons left partygoers in awe! Loree Mayer Designs + Speedpro Imaging Pittsburgh North turned guests into elves with their custom oversized holiday card, where everyone got a chance to show off their pretty faces! The bartenders kept the cocktails creative which were inspired by Buddy’s four essential food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup! The cocktails gave everyone some extra holiday cheer! Such an amazing holiday event this was. Thank you Fisher Foto Studios for capturing this day!

Twinkle, twinkle, little star - how {SHE} wonders what you are! Friends and family gathered to celebrate the soon-to-be arrival of the Buchner’s little star! Veronica’s Balloon Design made this event shine so bright by placing the balloons transversely on the tables + floating in the sky. Hens + Chicks provided a pop of greenery to this shower with their flowers. Guests were able to enjoy star cupcakes + cookies from our favorite bakery, Bella Christie + Lil’ Z’s. Those sweets were the perfect tasty treat! {SHE} was so thrilled to create another magical moment for the Buchner’s only a couple years after their beautiful New Years Eve wedding. {SHE} loves when clients become like family!

Pittsburgh Event Planner | Wagcademy

{SHE} absolutely loves when so many amazing + strong women come together to network + discuss the importance of female collaboration + empowerment. The 1st ever WAGcademy in Los Angeles, (yes SHE travels) could not have gone better. It was where WAGS came to unite + ignite! The day was full of speakers, panels + girl boss collaborations. {SHE} made sure that the décor matched the vibes of the day! The multi-dimensional step + repeat was the perfect backdrop for photo ops + interviews. Next up, attendees picked up their branded information packets + went to sit in front of the stage where there was a custom wall representing each of the different sports our WAG’s were a part of. The LA weather is a lot warmer than Pittsburgh, so {SHE} took full advantage + used the entire Hudson Loft Rooftop to create the perfect outdoor lounge. We’re talking balloons everywhere, dozens of pillows, delicious food + frozen drinks. It was an inspiring weekend + {SHE} was so grateful to be there!
