If anyone told me years ago that my hobby of hosting events out of my best friend's living room would turn into my dream job that not only pays the bills but allows me to live my passion, I would've rolled my eyes and laughed at them. By the grace of God, I can honestly say what seemed like a far-fetched idea has indeed come true! All it took was "faith-stepping" away from a solid career in Aviation (my family thought I was crazy), getting accustomed to the threat of 'sleepless nights' ('dark circles' are of the devil >.<) and a decade of both-elbows-an-arm-and-a-leg grease! My mother used to say, "Life makes sense backwards." I didn't bother to pay attention to her nuggets of wisdom back then, but I believe I understand that all of that work had to be done to get where I am today.
And the work continues!
FLEUR OCCASIONS is an Event Management Group that was born & raised in New York City. After witnessing countless forgotten birthdays, missed anniversaries, unplanned graduation parties (got balloons?), non-existent celebrations to commemorate my accomplishments and a courthouse Wedding, I figured enough was enough...if I wasn't going to celebrate my Life moments, I was going to make sure someone else did. And that's what I decided to build FLEUR on: the need to Celebrate Life! I know what it means to have an awesome gathering for whatever reason, but most importantly, I know what it means to not take a moment to acknowledge that reason. Our company mission is to make our clients guests at their own Event and after a decade in the industry, we've learned to do just that!
As if being a Mommy of 3, having a full time career and managing my own business wasn't enough, FLEUR's 2019 calendar is in full swing! My team members (we haven't come up with a name for their majestic ways as of yet :-/ ) are complete rockstars, but that doesn't stop me from obsessing over ways we can become the TOP event planners known to mankind. I'm excited for how far we've come and how much better we are becoming. With that being said, we are evolving: our website, social media outlets (I'm horrible at taking pics, recording videos of everything and managing posts...can anyone say HIRED HELP?!), and (finally) our blog.
So keep checking in for fun (but valid reads), tips on where to find our team in the city, advice from actual industry professionals, contests and giveaways -- all while watching (or should I say 'reading'?) us GROW...
