1.Tell us about your business! Where are you located? How did you get started?
We are a group of family and close friends that enjoy creating. Located in Beaumont, Texas we have been designing interiors since 1978, we began to broaden our scope to include event planning in 2005 after much demand from clients and friends.We have been designing interiors for over 50 years combined so the creativity has always come easy to us. First we started with conventions and other types of parties for friends and family and a community service organization we are all involved in. We then dabbled in weddings and tried to make them as personal as possible with custom monogramming and favors and other fun stuff. One day we had a bride ask us if we could do her invitations. We hesitated for about half a second before we said of course! We love the challenge of trying new things. Before we knew it we had people contacting us to design their entire event. We were getting calls for birthday, anniversary and holiday parties to showers and weddings. It just all kind of blew up from there. We can also create custom florals and sweet treats for any occasion. We make it our personal goal to ensure that our clients enjoy every moment we are involved in. We know that our clients come to us to make their experiences as wonderful as possible and we take great pride in providing them the best possible memories for every step they take. From planning and decorating for showers and weddings to helping you design the perfect sanctuary, we will utilize our combined 50+ years of experience in executing your goals. We love to find new products, create unique items and we have a flair for design.
2. Do you travel outside of the Beaumont area?
Yes! We have done several out of town weddings! We love to travel and try new things and work with different venues. We have been all over the states of Texas and Louisiana and we even had the pleasure of designing a wedding at Disney World! We are also international, we have shipped items all the way to the UK!

3. What is your favorite thing about styling a wedding? Is there something you do that almost all of your brides request for their wedding?
Wow, this is a hard one! Each wedding brings different challenges and excitement. Probably the most exicting thing to me is the process and challenge of getting into a bride's head. It is always fun when we have our concept planning meetings and we are tossing ideas back and forth. We get so excited about all of the possiblities and ideas that we come up with. These meetings are generally filled with a lot of laughter and loud talk! It is one of the many reasons our bride's are not only our clients but become our friends. That is my favorite part of the whole process but my favorite part of the BIG DAY is most definetely the first dance! After all these years it still tears me up. It is amazing watching them in their own little world focused solely on each other for a few brief minutes. You can feel the love radiating through the room and I almost feel like we are all intruding on a private moment because they only have eyes for each other.
One of the main things that we get request for on each wedding is probably Carmen and Jan's amazing flower arrangements. We can do as little or as much of your Big Day as you wish. Some of our Bride's find us later in their wedding planning process and already have much of their stuff but one thing they always want after they get a glimpse of them are the flowers!
4. We know you LOVE to style weddings, do you offer anything else?
Our custom invitations and monogramming are the heart of our business, they are what got us started in the wedding industry. Everything we do is completely custom so you aren't limited to what you see in a book. We then take your invitation andy carry that theme throughout your wedding. We can do this with monogrammed napkins and chair sashes to signage for your reserved tables and everything in between. Whosie Cakes, a division of K & K also offers our brides a unique alternative to the traditional wedding cake or groom's cake. We have done cupcake and cookie buffets as well as our ever popular whosie shooters! As we've touched on earlier we offer complete wedding planning from linens selections and flower arrangements to help with your budget and the logistics of the day. We have our own linens and rental items as well as the capability to do almost anything for your wedding "in house." If we can't do it we can point you in the direction of who can with our vast network of wedding vendor friends.
5. For moms or brides who are trying to come up with a "Thank You" gift to give to their guests, what kind of advice can you give them?
If you can't eat it or drink it, they won't take it! No one wants 100 engraved wineglasses or framed minature pictures of themselves and that is exactly what you will be left with if you don't have something edible as your wedding favor. We have done lots of different things such as candy, cupcake and cookie buffets to mini champagne bottles and even full sized bottles of wine that the Bride and Groom made for their guest. Honey and homemade jams in a mason jar with cute tags are always a hit. One of the most popular items we offer are our water bottles with custom labels.. They are great to quench your thirst as you dance the night away!
6. Can you give us a few tips on how to make a party go smooth?!
Hire K & K! Kidding! Lots of planning and organization. Do as much ahead of time as possible and delegate to people you trust. We always tell our Brides that the only thing you should worry about on your Big Day is getting pampered with your girls and showing up to marry the guy of your dreams.
