Kim Sayatovic is a local New Orleans girl with a love for all things sparkly and gorgeous. Her background in photography brings a remarkable eye for beauty and what excites the senses. She utilizes this in all of her event designs. Creating stunning tablescapes and memorable parties are what truly get her out of bed in the morning.

In addition to her creativity, Kim is one of those rare people that lives for organization. Designing, planning, and making sure every detail is accounted for is always the most important part of her world.

Kim is no stranger to glittery, over the top parties; she did grow up in New Orleans after all.  She’s even a former Queen (now Demi-Goddess) of a local carnival krewe. She spends a lot of her time creating costumes, glittering shoes to hand out from her other krewe, Krewe of Muses, or creating a themed décor piece.  With her signature purple hair and love for all things glitter, Kim has landed in her dream career.

Ellen Martin Kramer is originally from a very small town near Lafayette, Louisiana right in the heart of Cajun Country.  She came to New Orleans in 2002 and now lives in Picayune, Mississippi, a short hour’s drive to the Big Easy.  

Her experience spans many areas as she is a lover of learning new things and immediately incorporates those into her entrepreneurial pursuits, from home and office organizing and wedding/event planning to web design. She has appeared on Dr. Oz, TLC’s Hoarding Buried Alive and The Larry King Live Show during her career as an Organizing and Productivity Consultant.

Her true love has always been weddings and beautiful events.  Even as a teen she loved weddings, planning and creating various perfect weddings for herself….with no actual fiance 🙂  Her first taste of real event planning came with becoming a member of the Social Events committee for the Miss Louisiana Organization in 1999.  Since then she has planned weddings, social events, conferences and educational summits.
