Hi there! I'm Anitra, The Party Maven! I love custom-themed parties with fun  activities, creative food, decadent desserts, and exquisite décor.  Party planning is a passion of mine.  Before starting my company, I worked in different sectors of business, including events- which came in quite handy for my children’s birthday parties.  I understand the challenges that come along with the process of planning and organizing events.  My goal is to provide fun and stress-free party planning with every detail taken care of for you.

I have had amazing opportunities in my industry to work with and meet some stellar people, including celebrities, like Darrin Dewitt Henson, Byron Puck, and author, Kachelle Kelly. I’ve catered international affairs as far as South America!

When I’m not planning events or guest speaking, I'm spending time with my family, trash talking on game nights, & hanging with girlfriends. Let’s create sweet memories!

I'd love to work with you. Let's get you started!
