Your event, Your way
I strive to make your event the best it can be, based on your personality and preferences. Creativity, listening and organization are my greatest strengths!
I am a certified event planner and also have a background in art, design and psychology. My unique approach to events is through each client's personality. While most planners use the client's ideas to form their vision, I think I can add to this by getting to know them on an individual basis. I want to be someone my clients know and trust as I help them through planning the most important days of their lives. By listening and being attentive to client's needs, I can bring ideas that they might not think of themselves, but truly love.

My bachelorette party was amazing. I wanted something low-key but fun and Kate put together the perfect evening! Knowing my love of music and martini's, she came up with hosting the event at a Martini/Piano bar. She kept the party going with an after party at a hotel, complete with bachelorette-themed decor, games and food. We all had so much fun! It was a night I will never forget.
A wedding is the most important thing in most people’s lives, so it is imperative to find someone who will help to create even more lasting memories of this time. Kate Zebrowski was the perfect person to help my husband and me do this. I’ve always heard that planning a wedding, while so much fun, can be one of the most stressful things a girl ever does. For me, this was not the case. I don’t remember one stressful time throughout the entire process because Kate was there to absorb and fix any problems that occurred. Kate was with us from the beginning, giving us one creative idea after another to ensure that everything about our wedding would be a reflection of us. The first thing she helped plan was a shower for me. She designed a theme of “Wine and Cheese” and created different areas throughout the shower to represent the different countries and their tastes of the world. She had new and clever games to play that all of my guests enjoyed, and had wine-themed favors for them as they left the party. The next event that Kate planned for me was my Bachelorette party. I told Kate that I did not want a typical Bachelorette party; I wanted to go out and have fun with the girls I cared about, but I didn’t want to be stuck in a place where we couldn’t hear each other talk. She came up with an awesome idea, perfect for me. Kate hand-made the most amazing invitations for all of my guests, detailing the events of the night. We all started out in adjoining hotel rooms, where Kate had set up different spa stations for us; we could do our own facials, give ourselves a manicure, or even a spa-tub pedicure. Next we got ready to go out, while sipping on the signature drink Kate created just for me and this occasion! After we were all ready to go, we went to a hip restaurant downtown, where Kate had made sure our tables were far enough away from the noise, but still a part of the action of the restaurant. Kate had decorated the tables with gorgeous centerpieces; all of the colors that she used matched the colors in our wedding. We were treated to an array of delicious tapas, all of which had been previously selected by Kate according to my tastes. After great drinks and wonderful food, we moved on to dancing to great music. As the night wound down, we returned to the hotel for a few more drinks at the bar. We then went back to our rooms to have a slumber party. The guests at my party each received a personalized favor bag as they left. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Bachelorette party! Kate also helped my husband and me with specific details for our wedding. I didn’t want a traditional guest book, so she not only came up with the idea, but also created a guest book that was different but perfect. She bought a scrapbook album and decorative papers that corresponded with the colors of our wedding. Using the decorative papers, she created groupings of four decorative backgrounds on each page where guests at our wedding would take a Polaroid picture, glue it to one of the backgrounds, and write us a personal message. It was such a wonderful change from traditional guest books. Kate also came up with the ideas for our favors. She found small glass jars and added our monogram to the lid of each jar. The jars were then filled with jellybeans of the two colors of our wedding, and the opposite color ribbon was tied around the neck of the jar. The jars were then placed in alternating colors at each place setting on the tables. We received so many compliments on the great look (and taste!) of our favors. Our wedding and the months leading up to it are times that my husband and I will never forget. Kate helped create so many memories for us, and we were so glad that she was such a big part of everything. Her creative, yet professional manner of handling everything made it that much more enjoyable for us. I think it goes without saying that my husband and I would recommend Kate to anyone planning any type of event, whether it is something as simple as invitations or an entire wedding. Kate will make it perfect.

I was so thrilled with both of my baby showers! The "Steppin out with my Baby" theme for my daughter was adorable! My favorite were the litte baby shoes accenting the top of cake as well as the decor around the room, which my daughter was able to wear later! There was a bouquet of "roses" on the buffet which were actually baby socks. She did a nautical theme for my son's shower (which she adorably called a "sprinkle" since it was my second child). She created a tiered "cake" made from rolled diapers which also had baby wash and other essentials tucked inside. The topper was a baby bottle with a sailboat- keeping with the nautical theme. From the invitations to the food, the set up and decor, not one detail was overlooked on either event. They both were absolutely flawless. Best of all, everyone had a wonderful time! Kate is extremely organized and detail-oriented. She is also creative and inventive- she dreams up original themes and ideas which are tailored to her client's personalities. She establishes relationships with her clients, which is key to finding out their personal tastes to customize their event. But she maintains her professionalism, assuring perfectly executed events every time. Should any issue arise, Kate will be one step ahead to handle the situation before anyone is even aware of it. Her natural calm, pleasant and fun personality will put her clients at ease knowing Kate will handle every detail with grace, class and a personal flair.
