Do you plan lots of birthdays/events, or do you focus on weddings?
The main focus of EVA & Co. Events are weddings. With that being said, it is so nice to change things up with birthday parties and events sprinkled throughout the year! I don’t mind the occasional 4hr day vs. 14hr wedding day 🙂
Can you just do balloon garland for a fee?
Of course! The balloon garland will last for at least a week so I can come in the day before an event and set it up if needed! Balloon garland starts at $200 for 150 “basic” balloons and design. The price goes up for the amount of balloons used, type of balloons, and design. For example, gold chrome balloons are 2-3 times more than your basic primary color balloons. The average client spends $500-600 on balloon garland.
What does your party planning service typically include?
The purpose of hiring an event planner is to not only take the burden of stress away, but also to think of all the nitty gritty details that go into the production of an event from beginning to end. Party planning typically includes design (everything from decor to table linen color), sourcing decor and vendors to make the vision come to life, and setting up the decor the day of the party. The day of an event the host should not be running around trying to do “all the things.” Your job as the host is simply that – to host and make memories; not to worry if you remember to set out all the decor or food. Designing is one of my favorite things to do. Pinterest is a wonderful resource for inspiration, but pulling all that together and knowing how to make it happen can be difficult, time consuming, and frustrating. Making a party or wedding have a cohesive design is where EVA & Co. excels.
Below are some pics from my Will ONE-ka Party. I could not have done it without Ashlee! She set everything up making my day feel stress-free and happy. I was able to relax before and make sure the kids were having the best time. She came up with some many fun details, and was able to even find a candy cart rental at the very last hour! I cannot recommend her enough. I will be using Ashlee again for future parties!
