Event Planning & Design
Greatest of Days
What Janis does
I plan and design social and business events . They can range from the perfect proposal, reunions, retirement parties and other life events such as milestone birthdays, anniversaries and celebration of life events.
I can help businesses by working with them to tailor an event to increase clientele or hold a client appreciation event. For businesses I can arrange events varying from grand openings, product launches, seminars, conferences, symposiums, etc. I especially like to help small businesses in South King County.
I consider it an honor to help clients create a memorial celebration of their loved-one's life and legacy.
I am the organizer of a Meetup group called South King County Event and Wedding Vendors.
Personalize, personalize, personalize! Creativity can add meaning to an event and it doesn't have to increase costs. It is more likely to result in savings.
I attended college to become an elementary school teacher. I also took a few accounting classes and eventually some legal assistant classes. I believe that education goes far beyond the standard 4+ years in college, which is a wonderful experience. Learning should be a continual part of life. I've always thought that listening to people is the best education because everything comes down to relating to people and the world at large.
For many years I was the one designated to help plan and design events such as weddings, anniversary parties, birthday celebrations, family reunions, social events and even memorials. I've enjoyed adding elements that make any event truly memorable and enjoyable. When asked at a friends' daughter's wedding if that was what I did for a living, it was an "Aha!" moment. It's been an adventure I've enjoyed very much.
