Welcome to The Crafty Host

Welcome to my new blog The Crafty Host. I am a wife, a mommy, the owner of a Wedding and Event Planning and Design Company, and a true lover of crafts. As a child I was the girl who always had a handful of crafts that I was creating at any given time. I had closets, baskets, and boxes full of crafting supplies and I loved to spend hours upon hours in the craft store. Oh wait…. I still do that.
It was only natural that my creativity and love of crafts and design would lead me down the path of designing weddings and event on a daily basis.I started my company Port City Event Planners part time in 2006 after the process of planning my own wedding in 2005 showed me my true calling. I took the leap to follow my passion full time in 2008. I was blessed to become a mommy to the most amazing little boy in the world in December of 2009. Ever since I have been designing, crafting, and creating events and special moments for families. I love the process of developing a theme, color scheme, or style into a vision that tells the story of each individual client. I truly believe that no matter if you are throwing and extravagant wedding, fun loving child’s birthday party, or an intimate dinner party the story of your event is told and felt through the details.
My hope for this blog is that I can share, teach, and help you develop ideas, visions, and all the details to tell your story for your next event. I will share step by step instructions on creating some of the amazing details that we have used to create our events and styled shoots. We will share tips, tricks, and pointers to be a top notch host, and offer giveaways and freebies to help you on along your way. Now check out just few photos of some of the craftiness to come…
