Hello everyone! Yes, you read the title correctly...I am finally spreading my wings! After a lot of thought, a lot of long conversations with Darling Husband, a lot of praying and thanks to a few VERY PERSISTENT friends and future clients, I have decided to take a leap (or jump) of Faith!!!
I am beginning a new division of Dixie Chic called Social. Social will incorporate elements of planning, styling and design to any event or celebration in your life...big or small! Yes, I somewhat consider myself a reborn professional (my professional and educational background is in Marketing and Design) but I am also an obsessive one! Just ask Darling Husband...once I start on a project or an event, I evolve myself around it to succeed perfection (along with lots of fun) and he gets a lot less hot meals per day! I look at hundreds of amazing images and read beautiful stories and other blogs everyday...did I say that I would love to consider myself a Professional Pinner...without an income! And, I do this on a full-time and sometimes overtime basis...thanks to a lot of java and possibly a glass of wine!!!
I believe the success of an epic Social celebration or simply a small dinner party is measured in how fun it was. I also believe that a small dinner party is much more enjoyable that an expensive night out...with the help of a babysitter and AppleTV! I believe in re-using or up-cycling decor to make Social events more financially friendly and fresh to the clients eye! I believe in partnering with other local vendors to show support to our unique area! I believe that hosting a party or an event is a true side of marketing yourself or the product you are trying to sell or raise money for. I believe a Social occasion should tell a story...somewhat telling the readers a little bit about yourself. It should have them leaving wanting more (or, in Social terms, coming back for more the next year!) So, let the fun start now!!!
I am very blessed to start this adventure with some very special clients already under my belt planning dinner parties, a few Social events and even helping some decorate their homes for the Holidays!!!
