Cheers

Y'all say the sweetest things!

"Kelly took an idea for my 40th birthday party and turned it into a fabulous event.  She had guests oohing and ahhing all night long with fun details like the martini slide and photo booth.  She took care of the decor, menu, favors, cupcakes, photographer, DJ and made sure my guests had a great time.  Party planner extraordinaire!"  Laura Hughes

"I have worked with Kelly Spalding on a variety of different projects, ranging from magazine authorship to gala/party production. As the art director/graphic designer for Southern Exposure Magazine, I am able to design cutting-edge lifestyle magazine spreads that stem directly from Kelly's imagination and exceptional party planning skills. Kelly conceptualizes the entertaining article premise (centering around a party/design idea), prepares all food and creative materials/decor for the shoot, hires the photographer, art directs the shoot, writes the article/recipes, and provides every piece of the design puzzle needed to create an outstanding final product and magazine spread. Her entertaining spreads are a highlight to our local lifestyles magazine and personally my favorite pages to lay out on a bi-monthly basis!   I've also been fortunate enough to work with Kelly in the past year on her inaugural Pink Gala celebration that she introduced in 2010. An inspiring party to raise funds for breast cancer research, the Pink Gala is quickly becoming a social highlight in our area. Kelly asked me to help come up with a logo/brand for this event, which stemmed from her original creative idea. She carried out this brand in every tiny detail of the event from print advertising/promotion to small, elegant decorative touches at the final event.   I admire Kelly for her attention to detail, dedication to her clients and unique creativity with which she tackles every project. It is a joy to work with her in many different facets, and I am honored to call her a friend and colleague!"~Nancy Nanney

"I would highly recommend Kelly for any event or wedding planning needs you may have. She is extremely creative, detailed, personable and a blast to work with! We have provided rental equipment at many of the events she has planned and I am always impressed with the design of each and all the personal touches she adds to it." Jill Cole, Owner Southern Events

"WOW!!!  Most commonly used phrase the day of my wedding. Kelly completely blew us away with the service she provided, the many 'mini' surprises helped intensify the beautiful day she crafted. She may easily be one of the most thorough people I know when it comes to getting things done. She communicates effectively, which always made me feel like things were okay. Want your event to function seamlessly? Want the most resourceful event planner in your area? Hire Kelly!! Don't think-Just do it!"  ~ Terrell Hope

"Kelly has been involved in several enterprises with me and my family. She actually ran my son's wedding and when I say ran: it was more like a sprint! Kelly has more great ideas, energy and organizational skills than you can imagine. A tremendous lady and she strives for perfection in everything she does."  ~Mark Rogers, Captain, US Navy (Ret)

"Kelly helped plan, setup, run and execute our entire wedding day. With 2 separate locations, she was able to streamline and coordinate the two decorative styles to exceed our needs and organize the two individual guest lists so everyone felt welcome and included.  She managed our 'particular' nature very well, involved all client input, managed our rowdy friends with ease and was there from start to finish- every step of the way. She made planning a wedding feel easy."  Matthew Rogers

"I have had the pleasure to work with Kelly on a number of events and a couple of photo spreads for Southern Exposure Magazine. Kelly is high-energy, super creative and just delightful to work with. She has the know-how and drive to put together great events!" ~Holly Hines, Holly Hines Photography

"In my business of working with home owners to get their homes sold, I have to be able to depend on a home stager to come in and take control of getting the home ready for the market. In this competitive and unpredictable market, it is crucial to know what money to spend and what money NOT to spend. Kelly is an expert at knowing what those things are with out breaking the bank! She is an excellent communicator and she can deal any type of client I have presented to her. One client was completely defiant about the staging process, but Kelly was able to convince her how important it was to the sale of her home to rearrange a couple of rooms. The house was under contract in 14 days! Those are the results an agent needs in order to help a home show in the best. ~Jane McCracken, Real Estate Agent

"I would highly recommend Kelly for any event or wedding planning needs you may have. She is extremely creative, detailed, personable and a blast to work with! We have provided rental equipment at many of the events she has planned and I am always impressed with the design of each and all the personal touches she adds to it."  ~Jill Cole, Southern Events Rental Company

"Kelly has demonstrated her professionalism and expertise in organizing The Pink Gala and I would not hesitate to use her event planning services for any type of event." ~ Steve Smith, Williamson Medical Foundation

"I have worked with Kelly as a volunteer on projects that she has put together as well as paid Kelly to plan events for me. In both scenarios, Kelly has been fabulous to work with. She is very dedicated to the causes that I have volunteered with her on as well as making her clients' events be outstanding. I would highly recommend using Kelly to plan your next event, wedding, etc. It is a decision you won't regret!"  ~Amy Farrow

"Kelly has the ability to make a vision come to life while staying within a budget. Kelly is a true design professional in every sense of the word." ~Ryan Flood
