Venue Styling – Lower Westchester, NY

New to my services:  Venue Styling

Let me stage a thoughtful, small celebration at your event venue before a photographer snaps your promotional photos.  Potential clients often have trouble visualizing their celebration in an empty room and photos of a beautifully curated party help solve that problem.

Venue Styling is for you if…

  • There is a constant struggle to find content to post on Instagram and Facebook.
  • It’s time to renew advertisements and the same photos have been used for years.
  • Potential clients are not booking walk-throughs at the venue.
  • You are a new venue and need innovative photos!

Venue Styling comes in all shapes and sizes.  Whether you want to stage and style a small party room, a food table or even mock up a mini wedding with a bride; get in touch.  I work with several preferred photographers at amazing rates as well.

Once you’ve settled on a venue and date, I will pull together all of the pretty little details that will make your event a memorable one.  Here is how it works:

1.  Let’s Chat:  I will asses your direction (if any) with a talk or an online questionnaire to help pull some inspiration out of you!

Baby Shower2.  Mood:  I provide a mood board for approval (like the above) to help keep focus.

3.  Direction:  I deliver a digital document with product and vendor recommendations for rentals and purchases for the following as needed: invitations, photography, dessert, decor, and favors.  It’s like following a road map, stress-free and no research needed!

4.  Set up:  I will be on site to set up all of the details that were so carefully planned.  You can sip champagne while your guests arrive and for once, not be running around.

Sound good?   Get in touch – I would love to make your event a HUGE success!

Mini Event Design + Set up Packages start at $450.00 for small parties under 40 guests in Astoria.  Prices vary according to amount of planning time prior to event and amount of day-of set up time and labor required.
