Meet Your Party Girl!

Lena Wright 

I grew up right here in Roanoke Virginia, graduating from William Byrd High School with Honors in Home Economics. It was during my time spent in these classes that I first fell in love with the idea of Event Planning but I never had the confidence to pursue my passion. I worked for ten years in healthcare at a local non profit hospital before my son Isaac was born. We didn't have the money for me to stay home, which broke my heart. I remember rocking him to sleep one night thinking to myself, 'I've waited my whole life for this moment and now I can't enjoy it because I have to work.' I prayed a lot over the next few months but to be honest, I knew exactly what it was I needed to do. I just had to have faith that God would carry me through it. 

In October of 2018 I hung up my healthcare hat and never looked back as I pursued my life long dream of becoming an event planner full time. I obtained my Professional Certification in both Event Planning & Design as well as Wedding Planning & Design through an online college in Ireland. 

Throughout my career, I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients and businesses including Blessed Girl Conference of the Roanoke Valley, Macaroni Kid Roanoke!, FemCity, & more!

I recognized early in my career as an event planner that times aren't like they use to be where people were content with an ice cream cake and potato chips. People want their events to be special and one of a kind but they don't always know how to make it happen. That's where I come in! I don't want my clients walking away feeling like they could've bought their party at a store, so I use my love of handcrafted décor to create a unique environment for my hosts and their guests. Sometimes, I find decorations in fun boutique shops during my travels overseas while other times I custom make them just for my clients. To me it's all about the love and energy that's put into creating a one of a kind experience that people can remember for a lifetime.
