This is a business class for gifted and skilled decorators who need guidance with starting and developing a part-time or full-time event design business.  Most design classes teach you how to decorate but they rarely teach students how to build a profitable and sustainable business.
Introduction to Event Design
You have been given the responsibility of planning an event now you need to design it. Let us show you where to begin. What is an event design? What makes one design better than another? Learn how to successfully plan and design special events and theme parties.
Defining the Event
By learning just a few of the basic concepts involved in designing an event, you can ensure a smooth-running event. We will provide you with valuable checklists and help you identify the purpose of the event and define the event's format.
Process of Design
Learn how to enhance your design with dessert tables and beverage stations. We will provide formulas for ordering candies and treats and we will teach you how to make your dessert tables focal points at any and every event.
Building the Budget
Creating a budget and developing a plan to implement it are essential for the success of any event.
Designing with a Tight Budget
Learn savvy tips for shopping for décor, DIY (do it yourself) centerpieces, and much more!
Pricing Your Time
Learn how to charge your clients for your time and generate multiple revenue streams. Bring your calculators—you do not want to miss this!
Real Time
How much time will it take you to successfully setup your design on the day of the event? How much help will you need? What exactly should your help do? Do not overestimate or underestimate Murphy’s Law! Learn how to plan for the unexpected when determining the amount of time you need for setup.
How much time will it take you to break down your event? How much help do you need? What vendors delivered? What rentals and when do rentals need to be returned? Who is responsible for returning them? Sometimes post-production takes just as long as the event itself.
Event Design Business & Social Media
When is the best time to start your own business? Think you have what it takes to succeed? We will explore the basics in building your business from building your reputation and potential client base through social media, to effective marketing, and the necessary steps to help you succeed.
Design Portfolio Tips
Learn how to create a portfolio with or without experience by using the design tools obtained in class.
