Party planning took a back seat during secondary school and gatherings were held more often in restaurants for more privacy.
Event planning became very much a part of me when I joined CHANEL as a Communications Assistant. My boss and I were in charge of the fashion shows and media launches. To ensure that the image of CHANEL is never compromised, I learned to develop my eye for detail. Thanks to my perfectionist boss, I grew accustomed to things being of a certain standard.
After 8 years with CHANEL, I was attracted to join a company hiring party planners. Alas, it wasn't what I thought it would be and decided that I should try other event companies. I won't boast and say that I turned down jobs offered by these companies but I was really looking for something more personal. The term "party planner" wasn't big then when I decided to start Best Events in late 2008. (yup at the start of the economic crisis!)
I was brand new in a market where so many event planners already exist. What was I thinking? I wasn't! I just jumped into the deep end of the ocean and learned to stay afloat!
Today, I'm still learning something new everyday and doing what I love- party planning!
I started this blog to share with you all things related to throwing parties as well as to write about the parties and events that I've done or have attended.
If you have a party that you'd like me to review, do write in and I'll see what I can do!
En fete! Let's celebrate!
