What is your favorite New Jersey downtown district?
Westfield, NJ! It’s where we live, where we’re raising our families, where we’ve made our friends, where we love to party, and where the downtown is vibrant, historical, and always on the verge of what’s new

How has COVID-19 affected your business?
Our job is literally to party! We are event planners whose mission statement is to bring people together and to support local businesses, so this pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives and our business. We haven’t given up on being social while social distancing, but all of our events from March through May have been postponed to a future date, which has obviously affected our bottom line and our spirits. We are working together creatively to find new ways to party at home and to bring joy to our followers as they celebrate their birthdays…and just making it through another day in isolation. Once the storm has passed, we know that people will have LOTS to celebrate and will want nothing more than to gather together again. We’re ready to help! The photo we picked is us at our 4th annual Survive & Thrive fundraiser that we created and executed at the James Ward Mansion, a gorgeous venue in downtown Westfield.
