Melissa Gibney

Hello, I am Melissa, and I am a mom, a wife, and a woman who thoroughly enjoys planning a great event!  

At the center of my passion is the influence and inspiration of my amazing family. I often draw on the unwavering support from my husband—my friend, sounding board, and occasional employee—to help bring visions to life. Having a young daughter at home helps keep me young at heart! From playing dress up to planning a Star Wars themed birthday party, my daughter is always there to keep me on my toes and make life entertaining. I truly cherish the opportunity to raise a strong young woman, and teach her the value of hard work.  I approach every event as if it were for my own family and I spare no effort!

My goal is to bring your event to life! Making sure every moment of your celebration is perfect, is my passion. I always say, “we create, you celebrate!” Let me show you how amazing your event can really be.
