Thank you for visiting. I am Shellie McLeod, a life long party planner.
Party planning has always held a special place in my heart. Whenever there was an upcoming event, I would be the one to take charge and meticulously plan every detail. My enjoyment in this stemmed from genuine love and passion for creating joyful and memorable experiences for others.
In 1998, an opportunity to plan a bridal shower for a dear friend presented itself. Little did I know that this seemingly serendipitous occasion would catalyze my journey. The following day, a guest from the shower extended a hospitality job offer to me. That part-time receptionist job became full-time manager, and eventually owner/innkeeper.
Throughout my 22 years at the Weinhard Hotel in Dayton, WA, I organized and facilitated many joyful gatherings, each meticulously tailored to the unique needs and desires of the diverse groups I had the privilege of accommodating.
Following the sale of the hotel in 2020, I embarked on a new chapter as the events coordinator for the Dayton Historical Depot Society. This role proved an ideal fit, allowing me to continue utilizing my skills and expertise to curate remarkable experiences for others. However, my world changed in December of 2022 with the death of my 30-year-old son, and I was inspired to move in a new direction.
While planning my son's celebration of life, incorporating personal things that would make friends and family smile while thinking of him, it occurred to me that many people might benefit from assistance in thinking outside the box and creating truly special and personal gatherings.
It is my pleasure and passion to extend a helping hand to individuals seeking to create joyful memories and foster deeper human connections through thoughtfully planned and organized celebrations. My heartfelt belief is that every celebration has the potential to be a transformative experience, deepening the relationships between individuals and creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.
