Planning a successful event during these challenging times!


with Mary Alderman

Calendar Feb 16, 2021 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

All kinds of parties and events come into our lives: engagements, weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, bridal showers, retirements, holiday parties and much more. Let's talk about ways to make your day special while reducing the stress that often surrounds these events. 

And even though you may not be able to make the reservations or plan the exact day just yet, let's prepare! This class is an overview of what you need to know so that when we are allowed to meet in groups (hopefully soon!!), you can hit the ground running, knowing exactly what you want.  

This time of enforced social distancing will give you time to make decisions without the normal rush that usually surrounds large events. It will allow you to make sound decisions that reflect what you really want in your event from a large lavish wedding to a smashing Christmas party.

Cost: $20 per couple
