about    

At Fête & Figs, we feel that LIFE IS WORTH CELEBRATING! Our passion for the perfect event is never-ending, and our unique skills and creativity are unsurpassed.

We provide tiered event planning, design, and baked goods packages for clients that share our

passion, excitement and sensitivity for the art of entertaining.

Raised in Atlanta, Sea Island, GA, and Highlands, NC, I relish any excuse for a celebration.  Whether it's a wedding, shower, corporate event or holiday, you will always find me scheming up another shindig.

 

I have been a creative all my life and have 15+ years of experience in photography, design and planning, so I can promise you that no two events I create will ever be the same. I thrive on the challenge of creating something truly unique and spectacular each and every time.

 

My motto when it comes to planning an event, as cliché as it may sound, really is "it's all in the details".  And trust me, it seriously is! Every event, no matter how big or small, should be one cohesive dance.  From invitations to party favors, every detail should have a purpose and create a sense of unity, excitement, and of course celebration for you and your guests. ​

Born and bred in Atlanta, I thrive on answering that age old question: What comes before Part-B?... PartAAY, of course! And that’s exactly what I bring to the table... a party attitude met with a Type-A personality.

 

I have a strong background in production coordination. That means schedules, organization, and smart budgeting are life. Whether it's wrangling actors or your future in-laws, I got you covered. Leave all those pesky details and deadlines to me, because there’s nothing I love more than a perfectly planned and executed extravaganza. Oh, and a cupcake.

 

Since I was young enough to stand on a chair and look over my grandmother's shoulders, baking has been a passion of mine. From cupcakes to pies to eclairs, I make delectable and beautiful sweet concoctions for that cherry on top of any occasion.
