Welcome to the Samantha Joy Events Blog

Ahhh! I am so glad you are here. This blog has been an idea of mine for so long! I’m thrilled that it is finally taking shape. As someone with a passion for designing unique events, I have dreamed of creating a space for you to get real-life inspiration, see our latest work, and learn about how to create events that truly represent you. This blog will be a place to find latest trends, tips, tricks, and more. I have always believed that events are a celebration of life's milestones, whether big or small, they are best spent with family and friends.

I’m Samantha, a midwest girl from the suburbs of Chicago. I love to garden, cook, and create with my hands. I love building communities and connecting with people through their passion. Working with creatives and collaborating to push the industry and perspective forwards keeps me excited. As a student of life, I know there is always much more to learn in the world. As so many, I love to travel but I find that when we really sink into another culture we can learn so much more about the world and who we are as people. I’m inspired by travel and fashion and like to bring this inspiration into my designs and event concept. I’m hoping to bring this all to the blog and provide a fun resource to help you stay inspired.
