Hello! I am Martha, your Boston area host!
I love how flowers can change someone's day and make the mundane special and special events even more fun and memorable.
I grew up on Boston's South Shore where as a girl I read "The Secret Garden" and "Anne of Green Gables" endlessly and became completely enamored with the romantic nature of gardens and flowers. I hope to help you make your event more memorable and special!
After incorporating flower crowns in to her own bachelorette weekend, Suzanne fell in love with the way wearing a flower crown makes a girl feel! Suzanne grew up around flowers - her father was a landscape architect and understood the impact that plants and flowers can have. Having gone to college and lived in Charleston, she channels the Charleston vibe and is hoping to spread the Fetes de Fleurs love throughout the area where she grew up - the Hamptons!
Just a Midwest gal based in Charleston, SC who works in publishing and blogs about the city happenings or what adventure she's trying next. A lover of bouquets of flowers, sweet tea, and Buckeye football.

My name is Kelsey Rae.
I am northern born but southern raised. I graduated from the Hendersonville High School (yes, that’s where Taylor Swift went too) I went to college for marketing and business but my real passion is flowers.
I live a wonderful life filled with family and friends around constantly. We love to spend time on the lake, find new restaurants around town and try out the newest brewery. A few of my favorite things are polka dots, penguins and pickles.
I can’t wait to celebrate with you by making something beautiful!
Hey, y'all! I'm Alyssa - a northern girl raised in Greenville, South Carolina. I've called Nashville home for the last 5 years and I've loved every second of it!

I'm SO EXCITED about bringing the flower party fun to Middle Tennessee!
Krista is an event professional, designer, and calligrapher whose passion is crafting and creating stunning events. She made her way to Nashville after living in Los Angeles, where she first found her passion for calligraphy and lending her expertise to teaching workshops. Krista studied journalism, advertising, and photography in college and she’s excited to be incorporating her journalism experience in contributing to the Fetes blog. She’s taught everything from calligraphy to card-making to gift wrapping classes, and couldn’t be more thrilled to join the team.
Nashville has so much to offer to both tourists and locals celebrating different milestones and events. There are so many unique events constantly happening around Nashville, which are made possible in part by the innovative event professionals in the industry around the city who are offering new and exciting services to create fresh and inspiring events for all kinds of occasions. I’m so excited to be partnering with this team to bring Fetes to Nashville because there’s nothing quite like the Fetes concept.
There is always so much going on in Music City, from the quintessential Honky Tonks downtown, to the amazing brewery and cocktail scene, to the wide variety of sports games and events. A good cup of coffee, tasty pastry, and cute boutique is also never too far. The vacation rentals available in Nashville are perfectly catered to planning a wide variety of activities for maximum fun, and so many activities are so easily accessible by using Lyft or Uber. My favorite celebratory weekends include a little of everything: some rest and relaxation; trying local brews, coffee, and bake shops; a little shopping; brunching; and getting dolled up and going out! Nashville has so many opportunities for these things and more.
We can't wait to flower party with you on your Nashville bachelorette party ladies!

Request a Dallas Flower Party Here.
Hey y’all! Jeannette is my “grown up” name, but my friends call me Jenni! I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where I grew up with flowers in my hair and a paint brush in my hand. During my college years at Texas State, I floated the river and found my husband; who I quickly convinced to move back to Dallas with me after graduation. We now live happily in East Dallas, and when I’m not teaching Kindergarten, we spend our days hopping all over the city with our three dogs. Besides binging Netflix, drinking wine and practicing calligraphy, I love exploring this big city I call home, and finding hidden gems on every corner!

- Why are you joining Fetes? I am joining Fetes because it is the perfect side hustle for me! I enjoy crafting and I love a good party! I had been looking for a new and exciting side hustle that was more than selling products on Facebook. I wanted something that would allow me to interact with people in a fun way, and Fetes was just that!
- What excites you about a side hustle? I'm excited to meet new people and to help build a new brand in the Atlanta area!

- Why do you love where you live? Living on the outskirts of the ATL is perfect! I am just far enough to stay out of the crazy traffic, but close enough to great restaurants, shopping and events. Marietta is also just a short drive away from the beautiful north Georgia mountains, which are stunning in the fall months!
- What's your favorite flower? Hibiscus flowers are my favorite! They remind me of the beach and have the brightest and prettiest colors.
- One thing that stands out about you. I think that one thing that stands out about me is my "glass half full" mentality. I always try to radiate positivity and gratitude.

Request a Scottsdale flower workshop here.
During the day Megan works as a recruiter, and in the evenings she enjoys working on home decor projects, hiking, and spending time with her new dog, Flynn Rider.
Oh and Megan has been a bridesmaid 4 times and MOH once. She knows what bachelorette parties like and don't like. She will be a perfect addition to Fetes as she explores her newish city doing flower parties with our bachelorette groups in Scottsdale.
Her favorite place is Disney World! Fun fact of the day is that she has been to over 35 cities throughout the USA. Wow, that is a lot of cities. I definitely have not been to that many cities! So glad you picked Scottsdale to move to or else we would have never found you. :) Her thoughts on the most beautiful place ever traveled to: Oregon- Crater Lake, Multnomah Falls, the start of the Redwoods, and the coastline.

I recently received my Masters in Human Resources from Central Michigan University, FIRE UP CHIPS! My full time job is Human Resources for an IT company and while I love my job I don’t always get to use my creative energy. This is why Fêtes de Fleurs is so exciting. I get to share a fun filled day with new friends and help them create something beautiful they can be proud of!
When I am not in the office I enjoy doing anything outside, from being a beach bum, to hiking, to sight-seeing I am there! I am a huge animal lover, a fur mom to two cats and recently adopted a new pup into the family!
I am excited to be a part of Fetes here in San Diego because I think it is something that ladies here will really enjoy! Plus, who wouldn’t want to wear a beautiful flower crown around this city!?
Perfect place for ladies to go out and have a fabulous night on the town!
