Reno Event Planning Service

Hoot and a Half!

Every moment in your life is a precious memory that deserves to be treated with the utmost respect and dedication, no matter what the size. It is my promise to you that every detail will be attended to with great care.

Hoot and a Half Events is the perfect partner to help you plan for any special occasion happening in your life! From intimate parties at home, to weddings or corporate events (naming just a few), Hoot has you covered with a personal and professional hands-on approach. With over 15 years of experience, I know first hand how frustrating coordinating venues, vendors, appointments, finances and equipment can be.

Allow me to collaborate with you on the feeling that you want to experience and help you build your event around it.

My love of event planning and coordination stems from a lifetime of family gatherings. My mother created impeccable designs and clever lay outs to entertain our guests. It was always a giant, beautiful puzzle to me; so watching all of the pieces fall into place was magical! There was much laughter, delicious food, music, stories and a wondrous exchange of energy passed between friends.  My grandmother (Mam-ma) used to say “Now wasn’t that a HOOT?!?!”  My heart sang, for I had found my passion! I decided that the events I would be planning and coordinating someday would have even more pizzazz, thus Hoot and a Half Events was born. 

Your event is special. It is absolutely worth hiring a planner to ride shotgun on every detail so that you can actually enjoy your event and all the memories that come with it!
