As a Texas native, I was raised in southern hospitality and social gatherings. While studying Public Relations in college, I especially enjoyed the events planning and presentation facets of PR. This enthusiasm led me to create the online party planning brand, This Soirée, where I've been able to inspire others with tablescapes, recipes, etiquette and guest favors. My pursuit of a M.S. degree in Organizational Leadership catapulted my passions for event hosting and nurturing relationships into an integrated business--Become Your Best Hostess.
As a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and mother of four children myself, I value relationships above all. Teaching others how to live a celebratory life while nurturing and building relationships is my design. In this article, I explained the purpose of my brand:
"I want to inspire people to host gatherings and entertain guests in order to develop and nurture their relationships and friendships. I want to inspire them to cherish human interaction, engage in meaningful conversations, respect other people’s opinions, encourage other people’s talents and nurture and appreciate the relationships they have or can develop.
I want to encourage people to find the blessings around them, develop optimism and look for ways to celebrate life."
I have always had a love for style and entertaining. Combined with my excessive organizing skills, exquisite attention to detail, old fashioned mannerisms and playful personality, I thrive at coordinating, designing and executing each event. I am genuinely thrilled to help you do the same and create your own celebratory life.
