Since she was a little girl, Stacy had envisioned being a mother and a doctor. Too much partying in college prevented a career as a doctor. For a while, it looked like her body was getting in the way of her dream of motherhood. There were miscarriages and failed IVF attempts. After three years, Stacy conceived and darling little girl was born. The road to parenthood was not easy. It challenged her faith, body and relationship. Some people might think that having an elaborate party for your one-year-old baby is over the top. If they knew Stacy’s story they would understand.

Planning, Coordination and Execution
Event Planner Provo Orem planned, coordinated and executed every aspect of the birthday party for Stacy’s baby girl, Grace. The party was themed for a little girl but structured for adults. It was a celebration of life. Our birthday team designed the party, created the layout, selected the venue and coordinated with every vendor. Because Grace’s conception was so monumental, we designed and printed formal invitations with embossing and heavy cardstock. A baker in Provo created one cake and 5 dozen miniature cupcakes. The cupcakes were a mixture of kid friendly strawberry, chocolate and vanilla complete with sprinkles and gummy bears. Adult cupcakes were spiked with spiced rum, Amaretto and Kahlua. Our team was on deck to execute every detail from top to bottom.
Working with one or two vendors is a piece of cake. Negotiating with 5 vendors or more requires skill and at least one Excel spreadsheet. If organization is not your strong suit, enlist Event Planner Provo Orem to assist with vendor management. The venue will have particular stipulations. Entertainment, catering and equipment contractors have various aspects within the fine print that may trip you up. Hire the pros to source vendors, negotiate contracts and enforce accountability. Stacy and Ronald were able to be in the moment and revel in the experience as a result.
The service elevator should be working. Security and staff must be made aware of the imminent birthday celebration. Every light must be in working order and the bathrooms should be sparkling. These are just a few of the details the birthday team contends with when involved in venue management. If the loading dock is not clear or the pool is not suitable for swimming, who will be held accountable? We handle the part of the job that is unsavory. For goodness sake, it’s your party! You shouldn’t be bothered with the logistics and behind the scenes chaos. Enlist us for venue management.
