LA VIE EN ROSE Event Planning ~ Relax & Enjoy!
As an event planner for over 20 years, I host most of my own events, as well as help others with theirs. Parties, team building events, workshops, soirees, dance parties, al fresco dining, renewing vows, ceremonies, and other occasions when loved ones or team members gather.
How does your service stand out?
Having studied, traveled & lived in France for decades, as well as lived in and studied the wine country of California, New York, and Canada, I love helping people enjoy the French culture, as well as culinary delights, and language skills. I even include the perfume industry, having been a local in that region of France, as well as formulating my own fragrant recipes. This easily translates into event planning, too.
My love of French culture, wine, fine cuisine, the language, the lifestyle, etc., make it a true pleasure for me to help others explore the gifts which the French have given the world. If you are wanting to plan an event, learn the language, explore flower arranging, learn about wines, and even get help planning a tour or vacation, let me help!
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
I love being a francophile who inspires others to have more fun in life, learning about being a connoisseur with food, wine, and travel.

F A Q s
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Begin with an email or phone chat to discuss objectives.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Starting planning events when I was 12. Studied French culture since I was 14 years old. Studied in France during college, as well as in the Wine Regions of California, where La Cuisine and Wine Appreciation, and speaking French was routine. More recently, I’ve traveled to France, Switzerland, and have spent decades in Northern California, visiting all of the small & large wineries, 5-Star restaurants, and speaking French every chance I get. People love my cuisine as well and marvel how I can create “something out of nothing. My event planning has been full time since 20 years now. Every year I host several of my own events on both East & West Coasts, and occasionally elsewhere.
