About Us

Creating Memorable Events


With over 15 years of event experience, we know how to make your event one to remember. From the linens to the lighting to the centerpieces, we work for you to make your vision come to life.  Brenda Hamby and her team have made beautiful memories from Central Illinois, Chicago,    St. Louis and Southwest Missouri.  We have worked on weddings, anniversaries, trade shows....from the small & intimate affairs to large & fancy ballroom galas.  From grand venues to community rooms, we have transformed event spots into how the bride or event planner envisioned the special day. Check out the portfolio below to see some memories from our past weddings & events

Rental Services


We have a large inventory of linens, tablecloths, chair covers, lighting, draping, centerpieces, vases and glassware.  For outdoor weddings or even indoor events, we rent a set of wedding doors where the bride can enter in style.  Our inventory and rental services are geared for the do-it-yourself bride or event planner.  Rather than investing in one-time purchases for your wedding or event, you can rent from our inventory and save your money for another purchase.  We offer one-on-one services to our brides with set-up of your exact table...this gives you and your bridal party a chance to try out different styles to make the perfect table setting.  Brides and event planners are welcome to bring their own ideas and centerpieces to try out with the table linens.  We are very interactive!

Our History


There is a passion in working with weddings and brides. When I first started getting involved with event planning, my right-hand sidekick was my daughter, Natalie.  It later grew to a family affair with my grand kids putting on chair covers and tying sashes.   I have been blessed to have met so many fantastic women through the years.  Many I still keep in contact with and it's so awesome to see them and their growing families.   Whether you meet your true love at age 18, or if you meet him as I did at age 51, love is an awesome thing.  Through life, there are many turn of events that mold us into the people we become today, many trials and many blessings.  What a fantastic job to be able to see the happiness and feel all the love!  I would truly to honored to be part of your wonderful day because as each year passes---it truly is a blessed and wonderful life we have.
