Should we get CupCakes instead of a Wedding Cake?

I wanted to share the new trend of Cupcakes as Wedding Cakes.

There are so many ways your baker can customize your cupcakes. Plus, cupcakes make great alternatives for weddings on a budget.

When ordering your cake ask your baker to assist you in planning a decor to match your theme or your wedding colors.

CAES Class with Samantha and Jenny

On October 24th I had the honor to meet two of my favorite celebrity Wedding Planners Samantha Goldberg and Jenny Orsini stars of the T.V. show "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?" I signed up for their one day course/seminar that was held at the beautiful Skyland Manor in Ringwood, NJ. These ladies are awesome and they taught us so much about the business that I went home thinking and thinking and going over everything they had to say. It gave me fresh outlook about this business and how much fun it can be if you handle things in the proper way. The best part of the course was being able to hear it from the pros and that indeed was PRICELESS. We all had a great time with them they made us feel comfortable and that meant alot to me. (BTW I'm the one in the very center with the camouflage top) Thank you Samantha and Jenny you girls are AWESOME!

Mom & Son Bonding

I finally had the day off today only to run around with family errands. I did some much needed shopping and was able to spend the day with my teenage son. He was home today because of the holiday and I decided to invite him to go shopping with me in New Jersey (my second home). It's amazing how your kids will talk to you while you are driving. I really think it's because we can't really look at them as we drive (LOL!). Although I have a baby girl at home and wonderful husband I only wanted my son to go with me because we were due for some MOM & SON BONDING and it was great. I hate to admit this but he actually taught me something new about the Mine Calendar (?).

Well, today I wanted to inform all women with small business that I am part of a great group called Unique-Women-In-Business. It's a Yahoo group and these women are absolutely incredible. Most of them own Etsy shops and most of the products are handmade. We also have wonderful members who are either Mary Kay, Avon, Tupperware, etc representatives. The group also welcomes women who are only interested in shopping. So, if that describes you then by all means join us today.

Membership is by invitation ONLY so if you are interested in joining please click on the Yahoo banner on the right hand side of the screen and don't forget to mention Detail Diva Events invited you.

I will definitely talk about events and weddings on my blog but I also want to take the time and feature some of my new found friends to give my blog a different twist and hopefully make it more interesting. Until next time!

Oh, I almost forgot... some have asked me what's my website. Well, if you scroll down to the very bottom I have a clickable banner there or you can just type the following into your search button the

Wow! My first time blogging...

I can't believe I am actually going to give blogging a try. I've always said I am so much better at talking in person than actually writing, specially writing about me. I hope that anyone here reading actually enjoys what I have to say. So welcome to my world! Now let me introduce myself....

My name is Ketty and I am a Certified Wedding & Event Specialist which really means, I am a wedding and event planner. My business is located in New York City and we also service Northern and Central New Jersey. I decided to become a planner and actually go through all the motions of opening my own business because I believe everyone needs assistance during these celebrations so that they can be present in the moment not worrying about what they need to do or where they need to be. Able to just relax and enjoy the celebration at hand. It could be a party of 30 or 300, having someone there to coordinate and handle anything that might arise is the peace of mind you want so you can enjoy the event. Keeping in mind your idea of a perfect day, realizing a budget and using all of our resources to make your event one to remember is our goal.

Whether it’s a consultation to get ideas flowing, putting a plan together or coordinating the entire event I want to be there for my clients. With my experience, research and planning, along with a certification of professional bridal consultant and a desire to help others with their planning needs,“Detail Diva Events" was born. I have a fresh approach and a “can do” attitude along with a great deal of passion for what I do which are reflected in my work.

After helping many friends with parties and doing my own wedding I knew immediately that this was my passion. I found out that every event, big and small needs a planner. I remember walking into the reception area and looking at everything to make sure it was there, instead of just enjoying the moment. I have a knack of making things happen no matter where you want your event. I take the approach of good listening, careful and thorough planning, creative ideas coming to life and follow up on every detail very seriously. The planning experience for all involved can be fun and fulfilling when you stay in the right frame of mind and always remember that the event is a celebration of life. With life’s busy schedule, it’s nice to have at least one day where it's all about you.

My goal with this blog is to assist as many brides-to-be with wedding tips and also to assist anyone else who is planning an event big or small. So please check back from time to time.

Thanks for stopping by!
