Banner Events: 500 Fan Facebook Giveaway


A little background about Banner Events


From concept to conclusion, at
Banner Events we believe in taking the hassle out of event planning so you can BE a guest at your own party.

After much encouragement from family and friends, I finally decided to jump feet first into the event planning world!  The last couple of months have flown by.  It's no secret that I love to throw parties.  I always have!  I knew event planning would be busy, exhausting, and require a lot of hard work, but looked forward to it opening up many new and exciting creative outlets for me.  (And it has!) What I wasn't prepared for was the fast exposure and success that I would experience or the amazing group of individuals and business owners I would have the privilege of working with and calling 'friends'. 

With a handful of events under my belt, finally, in late October, I gave a name to my party pursuits and Banner Events was launched on Facebook. 

Here are a few shots from some of our favorite most recent events (some are only sneak peek pics of events not published yet).





I know I still have a lot of work ahead of me, including a logo design to create and a website to develop, but for now, it's time to celebrate!

In less than 2 short months, over 500 {FIVE HUNDRED!!) people and businesses have shown their support for the pursuit of my dreams.  Are you one of them?  If so, I am so appreciative!  I look forward to sharing my love of parties for many years to come!

So, to {THANK YOU} for the amazing support thus far, let's get down to the real reason you've all come to my blog!
