Event Planning and Design

the real meaning of life is to discover your gift and then give it away
~ Clarke Allen from The Inevitable Box
style isn't just about what you wear it's about how you live
~ Lilly Pulitzer
no limit exists for what can be imagined and created
~ Clarke Allen
when you’ve finished doing something, you should say 'I’m finished', not 'I’m done'. turkeys are done. people are finished.
