An Evolution

“Why did you choose the name Gilded Lily Events?” asked an astute potential intern. I loved this question for many reasons but the biggest reason being that Gilded Lily Events actually has a family history. When thinking of a name for my budding event planning business, I racked my brain but I kept coming back to Gilded Lily Events. You see I have a very talented and creative mom who along with my equally talented aunt created the most elaborate theme parties you could imagine. We are talking life-size giraffe cuts-outs and a safari jeep in the backyard to entertain and thrill their guests. From the age of 5, I watched as they left no detail uncovered and created memorable celebrations that I can still picture if I close my eyes today.

Fast forward to 2010 and Gilded Lily Events was re-founded. In this evolution, my focus was on designing something beautiful and unique that reflected my clients’ personalities. However after only two years, I felt like I should do the same for my business.

Cue third evolution, I went back to the drawing board and focused on creating a brand that encompasses my personal style. I like a mix of styles or a little something unexpected. As much as I am a perfectionist, I do not like things to be perfect. With that being said, I feel like my new logo and new website are perfect! A big thank you to my talented friend and graphic designer extraordinaire, Maie of Noon Designs, for working with me to get the font and the colors just right. Then we found sweet, patient Lindsay, of Hello Monday to create the website of my dreams. I love how well it showcases all of the hard work I have poured my heart into for the last three years. I am so proud of what we have to share with you and trust me this is just the beginning! Stay tuned for the future of Gilded Lily Events! It is going to be good!
