HOW EARLY SHOULD I BOOK MY EVENT?
When it comes to your event, it's never too early to start coordinating all the details. We recommend booking your event at least 6-8 weeks prior to your event date. This allows us sufficient planning & design time to ensure your event runs smoothly.
WHY A DEPOSIT?
Payment of a deposit for our event services secures your event date and begins the preliminary planning & design process. After the deposit is made, a proposal document is created and sent to you. It includes estimates, mood boards & sketches, an event agreement, and all other event details, provided for your approval.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Currently, we service Houston & all surrounding areas. Regionally, we are able to travel to other cities depending on the project.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF PLANNING MY EVENT?
To get started with planning your event, we kindly ask you to book a Free Discovery Call.
After we have spoken and depending on what kind of event you desire, we will either send you an event questionnaire or ask you to book a Consultation. Next, if you are interested in moving forward with planning your event, we'll create a proposal for you to review. Once payment has been completed, we will begin planning you event.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EVENT DESIGN & EVENT PLANNING?
These two elements work hand in hand to create your dream event! Event design mostly focuses on the aesthetic of your event. It's all about creating the visual details that transform a venue and brings you event to life (i.e. colors, themes, centerpieces, etc.)
Event planning consists of coordinating the logistically processes of your event. This includes processes such as establish timelines, budgeting, and vendor selections — overall organization.
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND & CANCELLATION POLICY?
We understand that there situations that may happen beyond your control. Please inform us of any changes and we will try our best to accommodate your situation. In the event of cancellation, please be sure to inform us as earlier as possible so we can discontinue additional services and attempt to cancel products. Because a lot of time and payout may have gone into planning & designing your event, we will discuss with you which items and services are refundable. Before entering into any contracts, we will discuss all policies and afterwards liaise with you in the vent of cancellation of your event. We wish to maintain the upmost professionalism toward managing each parties obligations and responsibilities.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CONSULTATION?
We want you to imagine what you event will be like. What memories do you value? How do I want my guests to feel? What do you want to see? My goal is to exceptionally execute your true needs and desires for your event. The first step in our event planning & design services involve an initial Consultation. This meeting will be held in-person or via Zoom and can last up to 2 hours. This consultation is an information filled session, where we explain our services and gather more information about your event. A consultation allows you to get all of your questions answered so you can make informed decisions about your Wedding or Event. To best serve you, we meet to determine how we can be most beneficial to you. This is a time where we confirm the type of wedding or event you want and discuss exactly what you envision. I also take the time to explain the event planning and design process, your estimated investment, and the value we bring to you by saving your time and money. After our conversation, we will confirm what we have discussed along with all event details. If you are interested in moving forward with planning your event, we'll create a proposal for you to review.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DISCOVERY CALL?
Our Discovery Calls are completely free. The discovery call typically lasts about 30 minutes, however, we give you as much time as you need to understand our process and what value we bring to your event. This is an opportunity for us to learn more about what you want in your event. We will discuss your overall vision and goals, the timeframe for the event, and if we would be a good fit for you. After you specify which of our event services you desire, we can discuss that specific event service in more detail.
HOW WOULD PAST CLIENTS DESCRIBE WORKING WITH YOU?
"Courtney was very professional! Loved her backdrop ideas and decoration. The balloon backdrop was exactly as I had envisioned. I would definitely recommend her."
"I am very grateful for everything Courtney did tell help me plan my friends bridal shower. Even with me being in Hawaii and having a 5 hour time zone difference, she was very patient and made everything better than perfect! So happy with the outcome of everything and couldn’t have asked for a better experience with an event planner! Thank you so much!."
"Courtney left me speechless. The amount of care she puts into her work is just amazing. Courtney focuses on every detail. She went above and beyond with everything and I am so thankful for her."
"Courtney’s attention to detail is just truly remarkable! Where do I even begin to RAVE about our amazing picnic. I will point out that from the moment you pull up she has reserved parking, to the personal professional photographer to capture those timeless moments. Very important for me to mention that the quality of the selection on the charcuterie board is just superb! So pick your favorite bottle of choice and be ready to relax and enjoy the evening!."
"If I could give more than 5 stars I would! The attention to detail in this picnic was immaculate. My favorite parts were the views of the city, the Brie cheese & strawberry jam combo and the conversations that brought me back to the present time in these on busy days that we have today. Thank you so much!"
"My first time experience with Perfect Picnics was beyond what I expected. Courtney was very sweet and matched every detail I could imagine. She is very talented and you can tell her hard work is filled with all love. The set up was so beautiful. My date & I enjoyed every minute we had and just the special moment we shared all thanks to Perfect Picnics. I definitely would recommend to anyone who would love to plan this as a date idea. The food and drinks were great and fresh."
