Lisa is the name and face of The Event Boutique. She has always had a love for beauty and colour, with a background in contemporary art and graphic design. Spending years travelling the world, living and working in Australia, London and New York City, Lisa gained extensive experience and studied Event Design in NYC, under one of the worlds most recognised event designers, Preston Bailey.
Returning to her home city of Christchurch, Lisa wanted to offer a service that made the entire event planning process easier for people. For those drawn to her style, who trusted in her vision and experience, she can be the one person they communicate with about their event, and provide the support they need - whether a little or the whole lot. With a love for the design details she passionately believes every element and all the colours must work perfectly together. And with her desire to create something special for everyone, she'll search far and wide, not settling for 'that'll do' in order to find the perfect elements for your event. Feedback continually shows the results of what she creates, exceeds peoples expectations.
Lisa constantly searches worldwide for new products to add to her hire collection, looks for fresh ideas, new suppliers, and custom makes unique hire items. Her choices are always about creating a timeless style, often with a modern edge to offer a hire collection that's different to what else is available.
Growing up Lisa had a love of garden flowers and wanted to be a florist, but having bad hay fever she didn't think this could be a reality. Working alongside event florists inspired her, so she learnt and studied floristry then sourced small local growers, and personally picks unique varieties and creates arrangements in a natural organic style incorporating specialty garden picked florals. She still gets hay fever but her love outweighs this!
When she does take a break, she'll be walking with Hugo, her adorable Spoodle (who you'll meet when you book a showroom visit), catching up with friends for coffees, beach walks, dinner parties or sipping champagne talking about life, love and business!
"Lisa was so excited about our event! Her energy and ideas were contagious, and we instantly knew we could trust her"
IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS
I'm all about the details. I'll often spend hours researching ideas for your event, staying up all hours searching on my laptop far and wide to find the perfect colour or product, or custom make a unique feature to add the wow factor.
On event day, with my meticulous eye for detail, I always make sure everything is perfectly aligned. From chairs to cutlery and everything at your venue! If there's something unsightly at your venue, you can rest assured I'll make sure it's moved out of sight! It's exactly this attention to detail that allows me to continually deliver amazing events!
TRUST MY EXPERIENCE & EXPERTISE
In this day and age I understand most people are incredibly busy, and often don't want the added pressure to make all the decisions, which is why they choose to work with a professional. This means you can focus on what's important to you, and relax by trusting in my expertise to offer thoughtful direction, fresh ideas, and take care of as much as you need for your event.
I would love to meet you, Lisa x
