It's been over one year in the making and I'm so thrilled to finally introduce Feast & Festivities Event Planning and Design Studio. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and Feast & Festivities is finally the perfect outlet to express my creativity and independence. Inspired by planning my own wedding (thank you, love!) and the fond memories and friendships created through feasts and festivities with family and friends, I wanted to help everyday hosts craft their own genuine experiences for guests.
I believe a true work life balance can only be achieved by loving what you do, that a business is only as good as its team and their passion behind it, and to always plan ahead in order to be successful. I place an intense amount of focus on researching, planning, evaluating, and re-evaluating, and that is what I've spent much time on over the past year. I am pleased to say I am now a Certified Wedding Planner by the Wedding Planner Institute of Canada as well as a Certified Event Designer through the Wedding & Event Institute. And, I am proud to share with you one of the very first projects I began with in defining Feast & Festivities: its mission and vision.
Our mission at Feast & Festivities is to support and inspire everyday hosts and their guests in the creation of memorable occasions.
Our vision is to craft personalized modern, elegant occasions through contributing inspiration, genuine ideas, and unique solutions that engage hosts and their guests in emotional ways.
When I began laying the groundwork for Feast & Festivities, there were three things I knew I wanted to focus on. One, to provide creative (design) support in addition to logistical (planning) support. With so many local beautiful venues and creative vendors to choose from already, I focus on pulling the right team of vendors together and share the direction and overall vision needed to tie each element together into one seamles occassion.
Second, to specialize in intimate and bespoke gatherings. I believe that the sharing of milestones, big or small, with close friends and family is one of life's greatest privileges. I work closely with hosts to create timeless, elegant, and whimsical occasions that engage and entertain guests in ways characteristic to the host.
Lastly, to identify a dream to chase. I envision growing Feast & Festivities into a larger passionate and creative team and continuing services through a retail storefront that offers a beautiful collection of event and home entertaining objects and supplies.
I am so ecstatic you have stopped by to learn a little bit about Feast & Festivities. The blog will be updated regularly with tips for everyday hosts, DIYs, our favourite recipes, workshop opportunities, family life, and featured special occasions.
