Real Quick (It’s All About Me)
Graduating from Creighton University in 2016, I slid my tassel over to the left darn well knowing marketing & design is where I thrived (but I didn’t know quite how it would fit into my life plans yet). So, with a triple degree in my back pocket, I took my experience in Advertising, Public Relations, and Graphic Design and began working for a start-up. Here, my skills became well-rounded (and that’s all I’ll say about that).
But, in this job, I quickly realized it wasn’t graphic design or public relations that got me up in the morning…. It was the events world! You see, event planning in Omaha sets my weird little heart on fire. And so, it was over. It was all over. I must party!
Near the beginning of the pandemic, I organized a mock “Iowa State Fair” for a client who was absolutely devastated knowing the fair was canceled due to COVID-19. With carnival games, face painting, and even a petting zoo full of little piggies, the event went off without a hitch.
Another time, my best friend got engaged, and due to a short timeline, there were no event planners that could take on the work. So, we pulled off a dazzling bridal shower in just as little as four weeks.
Event planning isn’t for everyone, but for me, it’s the job of a lifetime.
It’s so thrilling to work behind the scenes; I always take a moment to soak up the atmosphere. There’s no greater joy than watching the results of weeks or even months of hard work pay off. And to this day, people still talk about these events in a nostalgic manner, which further confirms why The Party Bar came to be.
The Party Bar: What Does That Even Mean?
Naming my business “The Party Bar” is a play on words. Think “Taco Bar” or “Hot Chocolate Bar.” If you’ve ever planned a party, you might have sunk deep into a Pinterest rabbit hole. We’ve all been there. You may even know the spiral of themes on themes on themes all too well. But, they all have one thing in common: a table and themed decorations.
And so, in the early days of party planning, we would choose a theme, then I’d plan, prep, and then execute. But now, I’ve fallen deeper in love with the process and the people, quite literally gaining new best friends after each event. And that tickles me pink!
Pushing New Limits as a Party Planner
The Party Bar has pushed new limits. We now do it all! With full-service event design and party styling, we love bringing a vision into reality through creative ideation and design of a cohesive look and feel.
