Well, hello there! I am Shannon D. Nold.
Read on to get a glimpse of my path to Elevate Your Event...
I have been involved in events of many styles for 20+ years, between frequently being the hostess for family and friends gatherings, and in jobs I have worked. I developed an interest in special events by working both the "front of the house"-- with the gorgeous event designs and table scapes, also working the "back of house" logistics--the less glamorous but equally important part of any event: mostly the food and drinks, but also knowing the bones of the venues--knowing what you can do, where to find it, who to ask, and how you can best get it done.
I have previously worked at the Saint Joseph Country Club, the Albrecht Kemper Museum of Art, and numerous private home functions.
I love events. I love to attend celebrations. I love to decorate, brainstorm, dream and create, with anyone for what they want their celebration
to look and feel like for their guests.
And finally, how best to "get there" with their vision.
My dream of being more closely involved again with event design and decorating officially launched in 2015. What a journey it has been so far! My large collection of decorative items was overflowing all the storage we had at home. The husband said, "Either DO something with this, or it has to go" so I "did something with all of it". I started a business doing what I love! I have shared retail shop space, then I moved to home based, and since 2018 have my own display and consultation shop space to invite interested clients to view my inventory and sample designs. This hardworking space allows me to bring your event visions to life. I would like to invite you for a look at what I have to offer to achieve the look and feel you want for your event, with personal design service, to create lasting impressions for both your guests, and for YOU.
So, are you wondering about me in my wedding dress, wearing it even to this day? I like to put my wedding dress on each year on our anniversary, something my mother did when I was growing up. These are just a few of my favorites, and some of the pictures that survived lost or drowned cell phones. I tell lots of people to "get your dress out!" on their anniversary, and celebrate and remember their big day! Why not enjoy what you wore on one of the most special days of your life?
(Needless to say, I like to have some fun!)
